User feedback and user questions

Name: Mike D

Message: WLS Shooting crew,

I have really struggled finding holster options for my particular need and could really use your insight.  As far as I can tell, the solution I am looking for really does not exist.

I am looking for a holster to use while hiking.  What I started off searching for is a holster which can be secured to the should straps of a Camelback backpack.   This would allow quick access to the firearm while not weighing down ones belt and while not limiting range of movement for other holster options.

Ideally, I would also like this holster to conceal the XD well enough that it is not going to draw attention or freak out other trail users.   I have seen a few \’chest rig\’ options, but those look like they would be a hot option to use in warmer weather.

The final option would be to use a OWB holster.  Again, this would be less desirable but acceptable if no other options exist, but would like it to conceal the firearm well enough so that it is not immediately obvious that I am carrying.  Again, the most desirable option would be to carry on the side of the Camelback, but I can not seem to find an option here.

Thanks for any input you can provide in advance.
