Hot New Concealed Carry Gear for Warm Weather

posted on April 7, 2020

A. An improvement upon the company’s popular Nemesis holster, the DeSantis Super Fly Pocket Holster features an even more viscous, rubberized exterior to keep the holster anchored in place. The addition of a removable, reversible outer flap eliminates the likelihood of telltale printing, while a slick pack-cloth inner lining aids in a smooth, low-friction draw. It’s available for more than 25 makes of handguns, in black only. MSRP: $42.99

B. The product of customer feedback for a compact, EDC-size version of its popular predecessor, Emerson Knives’ Mini Sheepdog features a 3-inch, 154 CM blade that is available in a choice of Bowie or spear-point configurations along with a choice of two different blade finishes. Serrations are optional. Choose from three methods of deployment: Dual thumb buttons, a flipper or by catching the wave on the edge of your pocket. The scales are constructed from G10. MSRP: $224.95

C. As functional as they are stylish, Leupold Katmai Sunglasses are made from lightweight, ballistic-rated materials and ship with rugged, scratch-resistant infused polarized lenses, which eliminate glare. A Guard-ion hydrophobic coating repels dirt, water and fingerprints for a clear, crisp image, while Diamondcoat-hardening keeps the lenses devoid of scratches. Daylight Max provides UV protection for optimal performance no matter the environment. A non-slip bridge and soft-touch rubber nose pads offer maximum comfort for extended use. MSRP: $159.99;

D. Attractive, American-made and rugged, the Magpul El Burro Belt is constructed from a single, flexible layer of waterproof, reinforced-polymer material that has a tensile strength of more than 1,500 pounds. Custom, corrosion-resistant hardware further enhances its purpose-built design. The result is uncompromising, sag-free conveyance of your handgun. It is available in multiple colors and sizes. MSRP: $59.95;

E. With a programmable switch offering four output cycles, the Pelican 7100 LED Flashlight has a 33- to 695-lumen output across four modes: High, strobe, medium or low—depending on your needs. A removable pocket clip orients the light for bezel-down carry. Runtimes range from slightly more than 9 hours to 75 minutes on its highest setting before it needs to be recharged with the included micro USB cable. It can also be powered by a AA battery (not included). MSRP: $83.95;
