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.
All it takes...is all you got.

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.

I agree...riding on a road bike with a fanny pack is very uncomfortable.
The camelbak rogue can hold a G26 in the outside pocket and does not look tactical. With the included hydration tube sticking out...it is very discrete in appearance. Here it is on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Camelba...words=camelbak+rogue

I used to run, a lot. Now, I can only do a little. I ran with fanny packs. Sucked, especially if the gun loaded weighed much more than a pound, because of bouncing and shifting. Access to wasn't awesome. Used a camelback. I could carry anything in it, but access was less than ideal. Carried something in my hand. That got old.
SmartCarry with a light and small gun works very well. KelTec P11 was too rust prone. S&W 642 is awesome there, except for the shootability and slow reloads aspect. But for actually carrying while seriously exercising, it does the job. Just got a G42, haven't tried it out in the SmartCarry yet, but it should do well. P290RS I had worked well here. The G26 is a bit heavy and bulky for Smartcarry and some kinds of exercising, but works well for walking, some hiking, and casual jogging. I can't run seriously now, but I imagine it could work for some. Riding a rough gaited 17h quarterhorse - not a good idea with a gun that size in a SmartCarry unless you only intend to let him walk. Trotting and cantering = no go.
I imagine the Hill People Gear would be optimal for hiking, hunting, and biking. Hiking, would get the gun off my belt where it can interfere with a backpack, or when hunting, can get tangled up with my rifle or shotgun. Biking, as with horse riding, would keep it from pinching or bouncing or shifting or getting landed on if you fall or get thrown. I would not carry it SOB on a bike, but I remember falling a lot when I rode bikes.

This is what I use whenever I'm on my mountain bike.
I don't carry when I'm road cycling.

I don't road bike per se. I have a mtn bike that I use on paths and trails and occasionally bike lanes on roads.
I wear padded shorts under thin material shorts that have pockets and a belt. I use my regular carry rig of g26 in comptac ultra holster. I can wear form fitting jerseys and not print much.
I'm not a serious extreme biker; just do it for exercise and relaxation. So it's more than sufficiently comfortable. And under duress, it's where it always is. I don't need to remember that it's in a bag somewhere else on my body. And draw time is similar to usual.

I carry an Old model LC9, or an xds in my pistol wear while cycling. Those 2 pistols are kinda known for corroding. The LC9 slide serrations, and the xds roll pins.
I'm about 2 years in riding 50-80 miles a week and they show no signs of corrosion.
On a 90 degree day after a ride, there is no dampness on the pistol. I wear it at 8:00 outside my shirt. (Lefty)
