    Any have a suggestion for a holster to use while backpacking?
    The hip belt and shoulder straps from the pack cover all the areas I would think to put one.

    A 6" Smith in a cheap Uncle Mikes holster fits nicely using the compression strap and ski holder on my Mountainsmith. Not the fastest draw, but it's better then digging around in my pack. Crossdraw works best. Use the compression strap as the belt and stick the tip of holster in ski holder, zip-tie if necessary.

    I'll look into both.
    The thigh holster sounds like a good option. I don't know why it didnt occur to me to try one if those.

    +1 for a thigh/drop holster. You might be able to attach a molle chest rig like you'd put on a plate carrier to fit on your pack straps.


    Or...this

    I'm liking the idea of a thigh holster.
    And I can't grow a good enough beard for the second option lol
