Concealed Carry Shirts
Convenience, speed, safety, durability: Concealed carry shirts provide all four — and more.
With a concealed carry shirt, you don’t have to walk into a situation without having to rely on only one handgun or holster. Instead, a concealed carry shirt offers flexibility, giving you the ability to maximize your firepower or ammunition capacity while maintaining functionality.
Deep concealment options for a handgun usually means covering up a holster using other pieces of clothing. But this can get clunky, severely restrict your movement and become heavy over time. When you're in a situation that requires you to think on your feet, the last thing you need is to restrict your movement.
Concealed carry shirts come in current, trendy cuts and styles that look and feel like a casual t-shirt or polo-shirt; you can easily move around without drawing unwanted attention to yourself. However, total concealment and restriction-free movement requires high-quality fabrics and strategic, clever construction in the design. It's also important that, as part of its strategic construction, a concealed carry shirt addresses issues like comfort, fit, and friction.
Perhaps the greatest concern a high-quality concealed carry shirt should address is protecting against accidental firearm discharges. The last thing you want is to have your handgun's trigger catch on an object outside of your shirt because the trigger guard protection mesh is too thin or too poorly constructed.
So, while it might seem like a concealed carry shirt is simply a matter of functionality — that is to say, covering up and "concealing" a weapon — there is clearly far more to consider when making your purchase.
Our Popular Concealed Carry Shirts
While there are plenty of concealed carry shirts around, most offer product specs but don't tell you why these features matter so much.
What separates women's concealed carry clothing from men's, for example?
Which is the best t-shirt for concealed carry in general and why?
To understand the benefits of a concealed carry shirt's "best" features, let's take a look at the popular Tru-Spec 24-7 Men's Short Sleeve Concealed Holster Shirt. This t-shirt is a blend of high-performance, durability and comfortable sportswear; on top of that, it’s designed for concealment.
The beauty of this type of concealed carry clothing for men is that it anticipates a multitude of situations and circumstances. In other words, it's not just about being able to access a weapon quickly or conceal it to the point of having it go undetected.
As one of the best t-shirts for concealed carry, the Tru-Spec Concealed Holster Shirt is also ideal for medical specialists or emergency operators who need to store small electronic or medical devices. With seamless pockets on each side, the Tru-Spec Concealed Holster Shirt is perfectly built to accommodate both left and right-handed individuals. It also has a flat-lock seam to reduce friction and chafing; this is incredibly important for all-day wear. Another feature of comfort is its moisture-wicking, polyester-spandex blend that keeps the t-shirt lightweight but fitted, clean but secure.
Women's concealed carry clothing like the 5.11 Hanna Flannel Women's Shirt is another style that matches the everyday design of casual shirts while still incorporating those special features that make concealed carry clothing so functional.
But who says functionality can't include a fashion sense? Women will appreciate the tailored, form-fitting design of this flannel-patterned shirt, with its smart, crisp collar, dual chest pockets and a comfy, breathable fabric blend of 98% polyester/2% elastane construction.
But what sets this shirt apart? That would be the RAPIDraw™ placket for fast access to a concealed firearm.
These Products Go Well with Our Concealed Carry Shirts
So, how do you enhance the functionality of our concealed carry shirts? Simple: Plan to create an entire outfit with tactical and strategic advantage.
The Propper Covert Button-Up Shirt, sold by Galls, includes a false button front and is perfect for concealed carry and covert ops situations. While your weapons remain within the confines of the pockets within, you can add more tactical supplies when you pair this shirt with Propper Men's Lightweight Tactical Pants. These tactical pants are simple but smart — they feature nine pockets in all, perfect for multi-tools, weapon mags, smartphones, and emergency or medical equipment. Meanwhile, the lightweight ripstop fabric allows you to get into any situation without worrying about spills, stains, or corrosive liquids.
The 5.11 concealed carry shirt, featured on Galls, is meant for individuals who like a more low-profile shirt. The soft, cotton chambray features a dark stone wash, perfect for concealing the signature RAPIDraw™ placket, for quick access to a concealed firearm. This design choice also makes the two flat, streamlined welt chest pockets a little more difficult to spot right away.
To maintain this "low-profile" look, those who purchased the 5.11 Rambler Concealed Carry Shirt also opted for the 5.11 Tactical Men's Ripstop TDU Pants. While the concealed carry shirt is all about allowing the wearer to reach quickly and easily for their weapons in a dangerous situation, the tactical pants help them execute on long-range, multi-day patrol and special operations.
