    How do you carry when hiking?

    I'll be in Michigan doing some day hiking in bear country. Heaven forbid something actually happens and I need to get to my gun quickly and it's buried in my pack. My EDC holster isn't going to work, nor is the fanny-pack holster that I have.
    Any ideas or suggestions?

    And they can keep that.....especially for $85. When I hike I wear my $30 condor assult chest rig with the pistol molle attachment.

    This is the exact reason I bought a sling type pack a few weeks ago. My main pack, which is extremely comfortable, but has a waist belt, just wouldnt work with my regular method of carry, so I went with the sling pack to see if it worked out any better. In my 2 outings, and 18 miles of trails so far, it's suited my needs just fine, and is actually more comfortable than my bigger pack. I'm able to get everything I might need in it, and the smaller kelty sling my wife carries.

    It's a fanny pack for your chest.

    Because the pack I use has a waist belt and they wouldn't play well together.

    I just got done doing 30 miles or so in the Smokey Mountains, and I elected not to take my S&W .44 629 simply because it was so dang heavy, and counting oz really matters when hiking.

    So I wore my usual OWB kydex for my XD 9mm (Too small for bears, I know. But I figured 16 rounds would surely dissuade most bears, and besides, I really want to fight one with my Ka-Bar anyhow...)

    Long story short the waist strap from my pack pressed down on my holster, resulting in a lovely 8" long wear mark on my hip that was EXTREMELY pleasant to hike with.



    Time to buy a nice light .357!!
