I am looking into shirts like the 5.11 compression shirt for concealed carry. I am wanting something to use while running. I picked up a Taurus revolver that has no issue fitting in my boots(which I was looking for) and would like to carry it while running in a more accessible way. I normally have it in my water pack on back. Kind of defeats the need if I have to take the pack off to get to it though.

My coworker suggested I get a waist carry setup that a water bottle can go on but I hate wearing those things so I know it will be a waste if I buy one. Anyone use or have used one of these shirts and if so what were your thoughts on it?

Honestly If you plan on carrying while running and just wearing shorts and a t shirt, I think your going to need something smaller and lighter. Something like an LCP or bodyguard and just put it in your pocket.

The Taurus fits in my pocket actually. I tried running with it after reading this last night. I jogged down the road and didn't like it bouncing around against my leg. I may just bite the bullet so to speak and order one. I should at least be able to get a discount through my pd.

Have you considered a belly band? It's an elastic band that velcros around your waist and has pockets for the gun, spare mags, flashlights, ect... sewn in.

I will look into those too and see if I can locate one I like. I was reading some reviews for the 5.11 shirt on govx.com and one review said it is not that breathable during warmer weather use.
