Experts in concealed carry often tout the belly band holster as one of the best for deep concealment, especially for CCW-perfected micropistols. Users often find them more comfortable than belt-based hip carry, and they're definitely more forgiving of different kinds of cover garments. As one of the nation's most respected holster makers, Galco’s new-for-2024 update of the traditional belly band brings a new level of comfort and adaptability. 

It's called the UnderWraps Elite Belly Band Holster, and it allows concealed carry of a handgun and accessories around your midsection, in a nearly infinite variety of configurations. It can be worn like a traditional belly band (low on the waistline, partially under the belt line or just above it), or it can be worn around the torso’s mid-section (the solar plexus area).

The UnderWraps Elite includes a single holster component that can be placed in an infinite number of locations along the belly band. The holster itself uses an adjustable internal welt to securely and safely accommodate hundreds of different handguns, including those with most carry-style red dot optics. The adjustable/reversible holster component accommodates right or left-hand draw. The holster’s cant is also adjustable to accommodate strongside, crossdraw or appendix carry.

Accessory pockets can accommodate your spare ammo, flashlight, badge, wallet or other everyday carry (EDC) items. Securing with hook-and-loop fasteners, the UnderWraps Elite’s elasticized nylon band offers breathable comfort for nearly effortless all-day carry. Available in black or khaki, the holster has a dizzying array of options for a wide variety of popular pistols. MSRP $106;
