What's your opinion/experience regarding holster shirts like the ones from 5.11 Tactical?

I don't think they'd allow for a fast draw and I carry IWB, but for days when I wear my "skinny jeans" might it be worth a look?

Although paying $50+ for a "T Shirt" seems stupid.

Just curious whatcha think.

you print like heck with them. it swings around loosely. slow and cumbersome. get the slide of you handgun clipped like you can do with glocks, and tuck it into your waiste band.

They don't seem like they would work too well.

I have one and it works very well. If I am wearing a normal t shirt there is no printing. Does make for a slow draw. If you wear a button up shirt you can get to your weapon fairly quickly. I would not carry a full size 1911 but my XD9sc or my PT145 work great in it. My wife. Has one as well and she works in an office environment and no one can tell she is carrying.
