My brother's girlfriend always runs in undertech yoga pants. She's always flashing me her gun when I run into them(only because she knows I wanted that P225 but my brother gave it to her instead of selling it to me). Maybe they make something for men.
S&W Bodyguard in a Sticky holster rides perfectly in the center pocket of all my cycling jerseys and is what I've been using for the last few years.
Question for ones using these products how well do they deal with sweat? Thanks
I've had this site bookmarked for quite a while as well. What size rig did you buy? How does it do with keeping sweat out of the compartment?

When I teach CC, I pass holsters around the room including one of my well-used Pistol Wear models. I wait until it's been circulated before I tell them it's been heavily sweatified. I can't remember what they do to keep the odor down and sweat from absorbing into the compartment, but it works. On really long runs, some sweat does run down onto the gun sometimes. I wrote a review a while back. I'll try to find it.

I went with the Recon size. It holds my .40 Shield, extra mag, Esse, and wallet.
Pistol and Mag stored in forward compartment - never had any sweat issues. None at all in fact...a few weeks ago I was riding and got caught in the rain. Everything was dry when I got home.
To add - if I were to do it again, I would get the Runner's version. It is the same size, but does not have the PALS (which I do not need, or want for that matter).
I have searched all over the internet for something similar that does not scream "gun". Either the quality is not up to par, or it is not the same setup as what Hillpeople have designed.
Also wish at least for the runner's version they would offer a color like blue or red. Something not so tactical.
I seek righteousness, but i'll take revenge.

After trying to figure this out for the last few years, I think I've finally found a way to carry while I run.
I'll preface this by saying that the solution works for me but might not work for others. I'm a firm believer that situations that vary even slightly can require drastically different solutions.
I run in a t-shirt and shorts, through neighborhoods and on city sidewalks. My goal was to try to stay as "normal looking" as possible.
Last week I ordered the 5.11 Select Carry Pistol Pouch from Amazon for $35 shipped. Yesterday I did 4 miles on the treadmill with my G26, and it seems like it's a workable solution (I mostly run outside but wanted to do a trial-run).
Here is a little more detail on the setup:
Before the 5.11 pouch I tried the Pistol Wear PT-2 with the G26. I found that it bounced so much that it would end up hanging down and flapping around making it impossible to run. I bought the PT-2 after reading a lot of success stories from others so don't completely discount it because of me.
I'm planning on running outside tomorrow if possible. If I learn anything else I'll report back.
Hope this write-up helps someone!
Thanks for the info - based on the "will my gun fit" thread, I think I can fit a P226 in the runners/recon size. I'll probably pull the trigger this riding season.
