Holsters that are specifically designed for athletic activities like jogging, especially concealed carry holsters, are subject to some practical requirements that other holsters don’t necessarily need to meet. For example, concealed carry holsters that are designed to be worn with casual attire don’t necessarily need to have the slim profile needed for jogging holsters. In addition, the layout of typical holsters is not suited to concealment under movement intense situations such as jogging, running, biking, or other athletic activities.
To put this into more concrete terms, consider, for example, the clothing that most people wear while running or jogging. During the cooler months of the year, concealment is easier, since more people would be wearing sweatshirts or other baggier, warmer clothes. However, come the warmer months, when people shed the layers, they might only be wearing running shorts and a loose t-shirt while running outside.
Concealed carry is compromised when the holster prints the firearm or even gives itself away. That’s why a holster with simple lines, that does not appear to be a holster and does not print the firearm, is important. Discretion is the better part of concealed carry, so a concealed carry holster had better remain concealed and not give itself away when the activity level intensifies.
That’s not the only thing that’s difficult to guarantee in a concealed carry holster. In addition to remaining discrete, a concealed carry holster for joggers or runners should also be designed in such a manner that it does not roll, bounce or migrate when it is worn properly. A bouncing holster is problematic for two reasons. First, a bouncing holster will give itself away. Second, a bouncing holster produces a very irritating sensation during running.
Many typical belly band holsters, which are fairly popular among athletes, allow the handgun to touch the user’s body and they do not breathe, which encourages sweat, thus rendering them very uncomfortable when the wearer is running or jogging. None of these liabilities noted that are common to typical holsters is acceptable for a jogging holster.
In addition to these concerns, some concealment holsters do not adequately secure the firearm when the person wearing them is running. This is an unacceptable safety infraction. Safety is the number one priority in any holster, whether for concealment or open carry.
