Mission First Tactical Belly Band Holster

Mission First Tactical now offers a versatile holster system capable of carrying a firearm safely and comfortably while running, hiking, biking and more.

The company’s Belly Band Holster is constructed using a mesh fabric that allows air and moisture to pass through, while the gun is secured within a thick elastic band complete with a hard laminate trigger shield.

The holster allows for ambidextrous use and is capable of accepting a range of firearm models.

Two elastic pockets allow the wearer to carry spare magazines and other EDC accessories, and two zippered pockets ensure the wearer can secure cash, credit cards, keys and other essential items.

The elastic band fits waist sizes from 26" to 52" and can be adjusted easily.

MSRP is $50. For more information, visit
