    First, I’ve never in my life worn a fanny pack and don’t expect to except when I travel in the near future and only when jogging. My jogging gun will be my LCP2, and in the pack will be my 1 additional 6-round mag, my wallet, my keys, and my watch. Any suggestions? Looking for a safe, secure package that I can keep from flopping around. Thanks...

    When I see a man, not a hipster, wearing a fanny-pack I assume there is a firearm therein. Don't let the bad guy know you're a good guy before you know he's a bad guy.

    So in the few times I'm jogging when traveling and based out of a hotel, what would you propose I do with my wallet with $3k in cash, $14k watch, truck keys, firearm, mag, etc. on a 90* day when I am dripping with sweat? This will probably be a 10-day event over the course of the year, perhaps 1.5hrs at a time. Then (after a shower) all goes back to normal.


    thanks guys, I'll check out the links above!

    Well maybe you should think about a belly band or thunderware. Years ago theuse to make a nice one that was a Velcro closure, mine had a Red Cross on it. no one ever gave me problems.

    I don't propose anything. I just stated what I believe when I see a man with a fanny-pack. I think what you do is very reasonable and to me joggers with a fanny-pack are viewed differently than others.

    Check Amazon for "Don't Tread On Me Holster Company". I'm on my second one. First one lasted 10+ years of daily carry with my G27. Great quality and they have several sizes to choose from.

    I have gotten good service out of the old Galco Phoenix packs. I just checked their site and they have a new design now (HERE) with which I am not familiar.

    Pistolwear holster is the best sports activity holster. I had tried almost every type. It’s the most comfortable. It’s a fanny pack that is more of a belly band. It hides under your clothes,

    I have an old De Santis from long ago, on a long drive it works very well.
    It has an internal Velcro holster, and my only issue was that I stopped for gas once and the end of my G-22 was still secure but poking out the Velcro release side.
    I have never worn mine in public, but what the hey, I would if I needed too.

    thanks all! I'll need something to accommodate a gun, wallet, watch, and keys so I don't have to leave them in a hotel room while running. I'll only use it a few times a year but trying to be prepared.

    I don't carry in a fanny pack often, but.....I do several times a year. I'm usually wearing a t-shirt, gym shorts and sneakers. I think it's an Uncle Mike's brand fanny pack.

    Inside, I have a S&W 642, 4 reloads on quick strips, my wallet (badge & ID), yes....I'm a LEO.......my keys, paper money, a set of handcuffs, handcuff key and a knife.

    If someone's bias is that every time they see a fanny pack, they think....GUN......so be it.

    When you are working and someone approaches you wearing a fanny-pack do you not even consider that there may me a handgun in it? If not, you should. You call it, "bias." I call it situational awareness.

    If he is for gun rights, I don’t care what or whom he loves if they are of the age of consent-lol

    I have had a Galco fanny pack that has lasted quite well. Folks can make fun of them all they want, but they are fine for exercise, as the OP wants, and for yard work, when they keep the pistol cleaner than just about any other carry method, and for long car trips, when the pistol lays right in your lap for easy fast access. If you care more about your fashion statement than self protection, use something else. If you don't care what anonymous people on the internet think, use a fanny pack whenever you want.

    I did not consider this aspect. This forum allows individuals to converse and learn - great opportunities here. :)
