Due to a neck injury I need to get up and walk in the morning to loosen things up. That means I am usually walking in the dark, with a flash light clipped on the belt, and then also a concealed firearm on the hip. I've been burning through jeans at an amazing rate at the inseam so I picked up some sweat pants. Without a belt for the sweatpants it won't hold a holster, so I picked up a belly band. When I get up I toss on an undershirt and wrap the belly band around me. In the mostly dark, to avoid waking the wife, I need to remove the firearm from the kydex holster and slip it into the belly band. It seems rather unsafe to do so much administrative handling, especially in the dark. In addition the "holster" on the belly band is just some stretchy fabric material with a snap to hold it in. The kydex holster I use has a j-hook and I haven't found a good way to get it to work with the belly band. There must be a better solution. Are there holsters which stay open, like kydex for belly bands that are model specific? Do folks put the gun into the belly band holster before putting the belly band on? Is there another option beside a belly band which works for carrying in sweat pants?
