Best concealed carry setups for biking/running?

Hello,

I spend a lot of time on these activities and was curious about what setups you have come up with for these activities that work for you.

While running, I wear gym shorts and with that, my holster is not very secure. I could opt to use cargo shorts/belt but would like to see if someone has a better suggestion or setup.

When I bike, I spend a good portion of my ride hunched forward and that makes appendix carry (my go-to) not a desirable option. I find that a hip carry (concealed) is the best/most comfortable for me, but again wanted to see what others have come up with.

Some of us old biker dudes, or wanna be biker dudes…LOL…wear a chest rig. Since my running days mite be over due to OA, I wear a serpa retention holster. Sometimes the chest rig.

@SKIdaho gets a good advice.
I start thinking about chest holster.
Actually my IWB/OWB hybrid needs harness only…

When biking, I wear my usual IWB rig. I carry in the 4 o’clock position almost all the time anyway. Seems to be the most comfortable, when sporting a tactical dad bod.

Let us know how ComfortTac belly band works. I’m a wannabe biker :wink: and almost bought a belly band last week.

First time I’ve seen “tactical” and “dad bod” in the same sentence :upside_down_face:

I move my EDC firearm to my front handle bar pouch when mountain biking. It’s in the front slot next to my phone slot. It’s a smackeral closer to my hands and won’t rub on or restrict my body while riding.

I only ride in very rural areas so my only real encounter will be on 4 legs.

I have the both the ComfortTac deep concealment (newest) and the 2.0. I have used these for mountain biking, hiking, jogging, and just to use with shorts that don’t allow me to use the alien gear IWB holster. I have never had a problem or concern of my gun not being secure.
I really like the deep concealment belly band. It holds my edc (PPS M2) safely, has a padded area over the trigger, and allows me to carry extra mags securely with the spare magazine pouch that was included. It has a larger velcro contact area and breathes as well as can be expected. I also like that I can also use it to carry my G2S that has a streamlight TLR-6. I have not been able to find a good kydex holster for that combo. I am a true 32" waist, and the medium size just fits!

I’ve used a fanny pack in the past. I think some have velcro for quicker access.

I’d be curious for the bellyband feedback on the sweat factor. Does the belly band wick your sweat effectively? How is the weapon printing with run/cycle (albeit tac-dad) fabrics? Is it secure enough for basic running or are we talking parkour moves too?

Has anyone thought about using a hydration pack as a twofer? It may not be the easiest to draw from and you may need to do something to keep the weapon dry. But it wouldn’t look out of place at all.

You might also want to look into this from Hill People Gear. It’s a runners kit bag. I have something similar for when I go hiking.

Thanks for sharing. Hard to tell from the picture. Does it scream “tactical” at all?

@Ferdinand1 sorry for not getting back to your question sooner but I’ve been away for a few days. I don’t have the runners kit bag so I cannot so for certain. The version that I do have is more tactical looking.
