Belly Band Concealed Carry Gun Holster

“Is your Life Worth $24.99?”

  • Do you have a permit to conceal carry a gun, yet you still find yourself leaving your gun at home or in your car’s glove compartment because it’s just too uncomfortable to take anywhere?
  • Conventional holsters are bulky, uncomfortable, and make you wear a belt and limit your wardrobe
  • Do you want to carry concealed comfortably?
  • Do you want to carry different guns for different situations?

We’ve got the solution! Introducing The Defender Concealed Carry gun Holster. The Ultimate in gun concealment!

This is a quality product made from premium USA-Made breathable elastic and Velcro for extreme concealability. This special lightweight, long-lasting elastic has a unique plush finish on one side so it feels like velvet on your skin for a comfortable, all-day carry. You’ll forget you’re carrying a gun! It wears more like a thin, discreet undergarment than a holster. Unlike thick, bulky Neoprene which feels like you are wearing a tire around your waist.

This tuckable, Inside-the-Waistband (IWB), belly band concealed carry gun holster allows you to conceal carry your gun without the need to wear a jacket or a belt. Nothing shows on the outside. There is no “give-away” belt clip to show you are carrying a concealed pistol or revolver or limit how low on the waistline you can place your handgun.

Ladies, with the Defender Belly Band Holster, you can wear what you want! No need to change wardrobe or clothing styles to conceal carry. Since you do not need to wear a belt with this holster, you can place it under your skirts, dresses, shorts, or over yoga pants. It will feel like an extra thin layer of fine undergarment, not a bulky piece of Neoprene rubber. Don’t limit your choices. No more risky off-body concealed carry in your purse. If you like or need to wear skirts or dresses, there isn’t a better-concealed carry solution.

You can wear it in almost every situation! Whether you dress up with a tucked-in shirt or blouse for the office or go to the gym in a t-shirt and sweats, The Defender belly band concealed carry gun holster will be there, totally concealed and ready!

The unique extra-low ride design holds the gun very close to your body for maximum concealment.

51 reviews for Belly Band Concealed Carry Gun Holster - Defender

  1. Norman

    I bought this belly band over 5 years ago. I’ve used it daily on the job. I’m an ironworker so my clothing gets beat up pretty good but has kept my gun safe and secure. Gun is a Khar pm9 and I don’t use the Velcro strap. I don’t carry mags in the belly band. I have other methods for those. After five years it still works well but is showing wear in some stitching. I’m proactively replacing it just in case. I would think I can get a couple more years of use out of my original unit but for the price, why not keep it fresh.

  2. Brian

    This is AWESOME! When I’m not in work clothes I’m in board shorts. This holster doesn’t compromise my style or comfort. What’s even better is this is Made In America!

  3. Paul Hasan

    good service holster

  4. Nicholas Vanatta

    Great way to carry something small yet potent when you’re out for a run or are just wearing summer attire and don’t plan on wearing an IWB holster. The material is much less heinous than the Desantis belly band but an undershirt is still preferable while wearing this one. All in all, a great product for a great price

  5. Ron

    Awesome rig you made here. It’s comfortable, secure and effective, so long as it’s worn around the waist and not the hips as it was designed for (and yes guys, those are two different areas with two different measurements).

    The only change I’d like to see is the option to use my Kahr 380 with an Armalaser mounted. The holster shape for the Crimson Trace is a close fit, but not exact.

  6. RF Burns


  7. Jim Patrick

    Very happy with this belly band.holster, great price.

  8. ANTHONY Rafaniello

    Purchased my first defender 10 years ago. Now im on my 2nd one.Best holster ever for my Taurus 357.Magnum.


    I have had mine for many years for use with my Taurus Mil. Pro 140 and use it daily. Very confrotable and excellent concealment especially with tucked-in dress and causal shirts. I have a right hand draw model but now I wear it on the left for crossdraw. I wear my cell phone on the left belt position that further conceals any indication of concealed carry. Recommended for social or business situations where maximum concealment is necessary.

  10. Walter

    Best bellyband on the market!

  11. Jay

    Received it [a Defender] today, tried it with shorts only, no top. I really believe this type of holster is ideal… Even one of our local Police officers in a gun shop couldn’t believe I was armed when I informed him. I’ve lived here for 17 years and know most of the police officers. I asked [the] officer if he stopped someone dressed as I was, if he would be cautious or believe the person was armed? He was very surprised when I lowered the top of my shorts to show him I was carrying a Colt Government Model .380 and an extra magazine. You have a very good carry item for the honest CCW citizen.

  12. Fernando

    A must have holster, very happy with this bellyband.

  13. Richard Dondes

    This holster is exactly what I was looking for. It offers concealability and can be worn IWB or OWB. It does not rely on an external belt and fits securely. Excellent product.

  14. Woody

    I just spent $90 for a leather holster. Then I got yours. Yours is better and more useful. Damn!

  15. Jerry C Law Enforcement Technology Magazine

    Comfort is the key. These holsters are VERY comfortable. …these holsters give you the equipment to win. You’ll have your weapon with you. These holsters require no special accessories and provide a near normal appearance. Comfortable all day long, …these holsters are more like an article of clothing. They are truly a unisex design and should fit equally well on any body type. The instruction sheet is superb and set this holster apart from the rest.

  16. Liam

    This is awesome! Works great for my Shield 9mm. I wear sweats or athletic shorts or jeans and no issues no matter what clothes. Can be rotated for any position a big plus for me.

  17. J.R. Palm Springs

    What a great product! …It is everything you claim. Out here in the desert, it gets up to 120 degrees in June, July, and August and our most common off duty attire is a pair of shorts, a loose T-shirt and sandals. The Defender is perfect for concealed carry.

  18. Barry

    Better than expected. I have a glock 19 and it holds well so far. Smallest printing I have seen using this holster. Love the extra mag pouch. Very comfortable too! Thanks active pro gear

  19. L.W. Frisco, TX

    Well, the Defender was everything you said it was! It’s so comfortable I almost forget I’m carrying and the Glock just disappears! I’m so satisfied with your product and service that I just purchased a wallet holster from you for my Kel-Tec P-32. You can also be sure that I’ll be recommending you to all my friends. Thanks again!

  20. Christian Sahuarita, AZ

    Your “Defender” concealment holster is the best concealment holster I have found in a lifetime of using handguns. It permits the carry of a full sized, service-type handgun with complete conceal-ability and comfort. Your product, guarantee, and service are exceptional. Keep it up. My wife has the same opinion about hers.

  21. Julian

    This product fits well and holds the gun correctly.

  22. Will

    Finally a holster I can use! I have NEVER been able to get used to the ones that clip on your belt – they always felt uncomfortable. I tried this holster with my Smith & Wesson MP Shield as well as a Kel-Tec and they were both really comfortable. I like the fact that it has a velcro strip so you don’t have to worry about the weapon falling out. And the space for the extra magazine is excellent. This did the job that other more expensive holsters could not do.

  23. Gary

    These things are comfortable:)

  24. Rolan

    Good holster – especially for the price! Haven’t had a chance to really put it through its paces, but I think I’m going to like this holster. It holds my Walther PK380 great with little to no printing. In fact the only time you can tell I’m carrying is if I’m sitting. And I blame that fact on my size, not the holster.

  25. Frank

    Its fit my revolver perfect and comfortable

  26. Bryan S

    I really love it. Works better than any other I’ve used. Very comfortable and a pleasure to wear. …an excellent product.

  27. Ryan

    3 stars because I sweat a lot, but the holster works great.

  28. Donald PA

    This will be my second purchase of this style concealment holster from your company. I highly recommend it for concealed carry. I find it very comfortable and a fantastic way to conceal my handgun. I have my concealed carry here in Texas, and with the comfortable fit and ease of carry, combined with excellent concealment, I can always carry my handgun with me. How sad to have a concealed carry license and because of not being able to conceal the weapon of due to comfort factors, you leave your weapon in your car or at home. And then get into a situation where it is needed. Thank you again for the excellent design.

  29. Jose

    I have been looking for almost a year for a comfortable concealment holster, I found nothing that would conceal my 2″ barrel revolver out of sight and be comfortable until your wonderful Defender holster. Thanks for a very comfortable, completely out of sight concealment holster.

  30. Tom

    This is a great product. I have two Self-Defense guns, a S&W Bodyguard 38 special revolver and a Ruger SR9c. Both of these fit perfectly in this holster. What I like most about this product is it puts the weight on your body, not on your clothing. I have worn this holster with sweat pants and a tee shirt and neither of my guns prints AT ALL. One complaint I have heard about this type of holster is that it is difficult to re-holster your weapon. I feel if it was necessary to draw your weapon, the least of your immediate concerns is going to be re-holstering. Job well done.

  31. Michelle

    Thanks for such a wonderful product. Now my purse won’t be so heavy! I would never have believed you could carry without anyone knowing! Truly remarkable. I just can’t get over how much more superior your product is over other holsters. I would recommend this product to everyone.

  32. Ted

    Your product is great! The Defender holster is quite comfortable and secure. And it allows me to go out with just shorts on.”

  33. R.L.B. Iowa State Trooper

    The Defender Holster is the finest holster I have ever owned. I use it 24/7 for off duty concealed carry, it is very comfortable and does not shift like other holsters. I also use it while running and mountain biking.

  34. Abe Reddy

    I received my Defender holster today! Man talk about service! I placed my order on Monday at approximately 10 pm and got it on Wednesday. Not only is the service great, so is the holster. I have worn the holster with a compact S&W 9mm for about seven hours and had only a golf shirt on. Even my wife could not tell I was carrying a gun. Also I almost forgot I was carrying because of the way the holster distributed the weight… Just as advertised!”

  35. Lawrence.W., Tampa FL

    I carry a Colt .45 US 1911 80 series and a S&W .357. Both of these sidearms are heavy and bulky. I have hip, shoulder, and SOB holsters. In each case, the weight and size of these guns present a problem of comfort and concealability. With your holster I find that it is quite comfortable to carry either. With the grip just above my belt-line covered only by a shirt or vest I feel assured of concealment. I also find that by simply pushing the grip down below the belt, these large pistols are hardly noticeable even without a top-cover. Very convenient, living as I do in Florida.

  36. J.B.

    I have gone through many holsters, and I keep going back to the Defender. I carry my Kahr PM9 as routinely as I wear shoes, and it is so comfortable that I sometimes reach back behind my hip to make sure it is there. The concealment is far superior to anything else I have tried, as it holds the gun close to my body and flat. Drawing is the same as any inside the waistband holster, with a shirt hanging over or tucked in. I don’t know why I kept trying other holsters.
    I’m not in the habit of writing vendors to comment on their product, but I was so impressed with my new Defender holster I felt obligated. My carry gun of choice is a Glock 19 but finding a concealed holster that was comfortable and unobtrusive was proving difficult. With summer coming, I was looking for something I could wear with shorts and a t-shirt. Fortunately, I stumbled across your website. I admit that I read the testimonials from your other customers with a very large grain of salt, but with your no-questions-asked return policy, figured I had little to lose.

  37. D.J.

    Been using the Defender belly band for over 10yrs plus. Best on the market. Highly recommended.

  38. Sandra

    I am a skinny girl and was concerned it might print. Well I was wrong works great no matter what I wear. Some girls want some sexy to their holsters but I am happy with a plain get the job done holster. Carrying a Glock 42.

  39. Pete

    Can not recommend enough, one holster for pretty much every position, no added bulk and under$30. Well made on top of all that. Well done

  40. Ralph

    Very impressed with this quality holster. Very well made and very comfortable to wear. Exactly as advertised. I would highly recommend this holster.

  41. Terry D.

    I’ve only worn this a few times. Very comfortable and easy to wear. Forgot I was wearing it after a while… No problem to sit or drive with this rig. Sorry I waited so long to purchase one.

  42. Jim

    Very comfortable. Can wear shirt tucked in or out. You’ll be glad you bought it!

  43. jamie kirwin

    Very nice doesnt feel like i even have my m&p .45 compact on me at times. 4.25″. Still not broken in yet.

  44. Jim

    The MOST comfortable holster you’ll ever own. Well made!

  45. Kenneth Faint

    This replaces one I bought 4 years ago….I hope it holds up as long as the lastone

  46. skip1611

    While I just bought a new Defender belly band, the ones I’ve bought over the past years are still working just fine. I’ve worn this belly band for years and have no reason to try anything else.
    The ONLY negative I have noted, is that this product largely eliminates excuses for buying a lot of holsters!
    No better way to carry TRULY concealed.

  47. john matey

    everything I expected great product

  48. Bill

    Good concealment with ease of use.
    I wear sweats a lot – good concealment ad ease of draw.
    Ruger LCP 380 plus a spare magazine are secure and well hidden with this holster and magazine slot.

  49. Steven N

    This was exactly as advertised. Worked better than I had expected , keeps the weapon tight against the body and pretty much invisible under a shirt.

  50. Frank

    I’m glad I chose this holster after looking at several different designs. I like the option of this waste band design because it can be worn IWB, or out. Also you can position the gun any where around your body. The holster will accept several different guns and provides a clip pocket. This is an economical versatile holster, and I wear daily. I bought one for my wife, and she prefers it over a purse carry.

  51. Dave B

    Waited about a month to write this review. I’ve been putting this holster through the paces and wearing it 7 days a week 18 hours a day. It carried a large 1911 with ease and comfort with hardly a notice at times that I even had it on me. I did order an additional thumb break strap to keep firearm secure and also to gain easier access while wearing around the waistline (as suggested by Seller). I love this rig!
