I am curious...
My hypothetical method would be the coin pocket on my jeans, but I have yet to acquire any. Something I should do before backpacking this summer.

There is that new pocket clip thing they came out with. Its cool, but costly for no reason.

I carry two speed strips in my “Tuff” products speed strip carrier from Amazon. Holds two six round speeds strips and discreetly wraps around my belt. Has a very low profile too.

Dont listen to the negative reviews.. I took a chance on mine and it works perfectly. Fits TWO bianchi speed strips perfectly. My thought is, the motards who left 1 star reviews didnt actually test it out thoroughly. I did.. They fit fine and draw out fine.

Honestly, I love it having switched from speed loaders (waste of time IMO) to speed strips.

Normally Id suggest pocket carry but I carry other junk in my front pockets so it rules that out.

I carry mine on the strong side in a watch pocket since I switch the revolver to the weak hand for reloading. If I was on the trail I have a leather pouch that wraps around the belt that contains two seven shot speed strips. I also have a nylon bullet strip on my old hunting fanny pack. What do you thing about Mas Ayoob's suggestion to always delete one round on a speed strip to facilitate manipulation ? I have had trouble with speed loaders dumping the rounds while still riding in the pouch. I like to use them for range use. I the past I have carried spare rounds in the old fashion Barney Fife leather scabbard. These rounds developed serious verdigris.

I had canvas speed strip cover made for 38/357 and some made for 44spl/44mag.
Different color canvas for different calibers. Here is one for my 38 special speed strips.

They keep the pocket little out of the hollow points, no one knows what they are when you take out change from your pocket. The speed strip comes out of sleve easily.
I need to get more of them made up.
