    That strikes me as a contradictory concept (and I'm a gear geek). I've seen lots of chest rigs, but none that could be considered concealed.

    This is an original Hill People chest rig.

    Here's the trigger guard holster I mentioned. I know HPG says the Kit Bag "is" a holster, but I still prefer to have the trigger protected on semi-autos. I believe several companies make them. This one is by UM Tactical. It ties to the grosgrain loop in the Kit Bag and provides excellent retention, plus peace of mind.

    I use a homemade chest rig. It's a Caldwell belly holster with an added shoulder strap to keep up high instead of on my belly. I also added two mag pouches from wide elastic.

    I use two sizes of the Hill People Gear kit bags for backpacking. Carrying on the trail looks right at home.

    The Hill People Gear Kit Bag is, itself, visible, but it conceals the weapon. They are available with and without external webbing, and in several colors. They are VERY well-made. One can rig the Kit Bag to be independent of any other pack or bag, or, it can be rigged to share a harness with a back pack, including small packs such as Hill People Gear’s own Tarahumara
