Rob Pincus discusses the features of his modular belly band, designed in conjunction with Crossbreed Holsters for comfort, convenience, and efficient holstering. Traditional belly bands are comfortable, but they can be relatively slow and hard to train with. This belly band holster model integrates Kydex thermoplastic material and uses hook and loop fasteners that allow for the band to be used with multiple firearms or defensive tools.
I’ve tried a couple “ cheap “ belly bands. Both wouldn’t stay up, drift down especially if your walking briskly of jogging. Does this band have any “sticky” material to prevent slipping down? Thanks
This belly band doesn’t have any tacky material on the inside. The belly band really is kept in place through how tight it is wrapped around the body, our natural curves, and the use of the outer garment (belt, draw string, etc.). The Crossbreed Gen 2 belly band has a double velcro attachment that “sandwiches” the gun/holster even better than the original and is definitely one of (if not the) best in class when it comes to belly bands. Another option for a holster when not able to wear a belt or looking for deeper concealment is the use of a holster with a Fabriclip. Check out this PDN video for more information on that option.

Thanks for the video, it was info that I have been looking for. The belly band holster makes the most sense to me and I bought one but it was very hot and uncomfortable. How comfortable is this Crossbreed modular belly band?
Comfort is subjective. The material on the Crossbreed belly band is similar to those made by DeSantis or Galco. The benefit of the Crossbreed is the modular nature and having a kydex holster instead of just a collapsing pocket like other belly bands.
Does the velcro make a lot of sound when you move? Especially when you go from a sitting position to standing? Or even when you twist your torso from side to side? I’m sold on this if it stays quiet. If not, it would drive me crazy, lol!
I have used the Crossbreed Ohai in my vehicle’s console (the same holster used in the belly band) as well as in a Maxpedition Versipack and I really love the option of being able to pull it out of the bag and put it in my console while traveling and then back into the Maxpedition when I arrive at my destination. So this system should be even better as I really would rather have my firearm on my person plus this system gives you the option of being able to just swap the holster and carry a different gun. Great idea I;m going to have to get one for summer carry I also like the way you can adjust the angle of your firearm as I have found for me at least my gun tends to either poke me in the stomach or the leg when I sit down while carrying this way.
I think my main concern would be perspiration, and constant moisture adjacent to the firearm. I wear a back brace much of the time and is basically the same materials and application. Any comments?
Reminds me of the old star trek show phaser belts
Brilliant idea. I’ve been using a Galco UnderWrap for years and have been pleased. But, I’m intrigued by the modularity of this system. Thanks for sharing this information.
I like this style belly band, I’ve need using a belly band for a few yrs now. This is the first time I’ve seen an improvement on the old style. Can’t wait to get one what a good idea.
