Arrowhead Tactical Apparel Carrier Shorts ($64.99 to $74.99)

Training and staying active in the warmer months while still maintaining your concealed carry loadout can be an exercise in troubleshooting and compromise. Of course, there are various means of moderately convenient off-body carry, but none will be as quick or as intuitive as on-body concealed carry. With their patent-pending Carrier Retention Waistband system, Arrowhead Tactical Apparel has the solution. The company’s Carrier Shorts—made from a breathable, flexible, durable and comfortable nylon-based fabric—allow full freedom of movement while offering a solid foundation to mount your IWB holster and spare mag carrier. That foundation is based on the Carrier Rapid Clasp Retention Belt, which runs through the inner loops of the Carrier Shorts. Between the inner belt and drawstring, we found the shorts never migrated and remained very comfortable after a day of hiking with an FN509 Midsize pistol and spare mag. A rear zippered storage pocket lets you bring along other essentials such as a wallet or cell phone. Available in 8- and 11-inch inseams, three different colors (chalk grey shown) and five different sizes, we consider these a must have for active concealed carrier.
