I’ve used a belly-band-style holster system off and on for many years. Belly bands are elastic concealment holsters that wrap around the midsection and hold handguns above the belt line under a covering garment. They haven’t changed much in the last 40 years. For example, my belly band holster from a major manufacturer follows the classic design, with two simple mirror image holsters to fit a limited variety of guns and a slot for a spare magazine.
While at the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo this year, I ran into what I consider a major upgrade in the belly band carry method: the aptly named BodyGuard Belt.
Fillable and Flexible: A Unique Concealed Carry Belt
What makes the BodyGuard Belt unique is that it isn’t just for carrying handguns, though that is its primary function. With the BodyGuard Belt, you can carry a much wider variety of EDC and non-EDC gear that might normally clutter your pockets or purse.
The BodyGuard Belt is constructed of 3mm-thick Neoprene that accommodates waist sizes from 26 inches to 56 inches. It allows individual trim-to-fit customization. I have a 34-inch waist, and my sample fit fine without modification.
The BodyGuard Belt is also unique because its compartments can accommodate a total of three pistols, four magazines, money, wallet and keys — all at the same time! Though not all of that may be necessary, understanding the total capacity is important in understanding just how flexible the BodyGuard belt is.
