Carrying a concealed gun can present the armed citizen with a quandary. On the one hand, we all know that it's preferable to carry our defensive firearm on our bodies...but that's simply not always practical. When you must carry off-body, your best bet is to ensure that your gun is deeply concealed and very discreet. That's why ALPS OutdoorZ recommends you try carrying "phantom style," with its new Ghost 30 day pack.
What's great about day packs is that they have become very popular among both men and women to keep all of our daily gear handy. For that reason, carrying a discreet pack like the Ghost 30 means you'll blend right in to the rest of the workaday public. While on-body carry of defensive firearms is not always practical or possible, daypacks and business/office backpacks are increasingly common.
The Ghost 30 pack is built with the same rugged-use intent as ALPS OutdoorZ's heralded hunting packs, and you could certainly use it that way if you wanted to. That said, this pack was built to blend in to the urban jungle, not the backwoods.
The heart of the Ghost 30 is its ability to accommodate personal defense handguns. An ambidextrous-access carry pocket is positioned behind the back panel and secured via left- and right-side zippers. The material inside the pocket is lined with loop fabric, allowing holsters with hook-and-loop backing material to attach inside the pocket for quick firearm deployment. Similarly, the Ghost 30's front panel also features loop fabric so that users can position their holster for front-panel access, or adding additional accessories.
Of course, you can fit much more than your gun in there! There are two padded laptop sleeves, a sunglasses case pocket, interior pockets for all your gear...even a hydration pocket for your Camelbak! MSRP $149; http://www.alpsoutdoorz.com/.
