My epiphany 5 years ago was to wear it low around the hips, positioning the gun exactly were my IWB holster put it.

Belting my jeans around the whole rig with the grip just above my belt line gives easy access the weapon and a tucked or untucked shirt provides ample concealment.

Don't know how you were wearing yours but try this location. Mine is also of the softer material variety and 4" in height.

Good Luck

I've found that this is far superior to any IWB I've ever worn and never had a problem with comfort.
I've been wearing is last several waking hours. The nylon isn't the problem, it's the Velcro. Think I'll trim the end so no overlapping happens. Ever since I've slimmed down in the gut and bulked in the chest my shirts fit looser in the stomach area, so it's more concealed than before. I've never been fat, but never muscular either, so things just fit normal. But now the sleeves & chest are tight & gut loose and this carry system might work! I'm glad I kept the old failed holsters bin, might try some others again. Lol

You shouldn't be scratched. The sharp side should over the top and not touching your skin. But if you've got excess, just cut it off. They're not very expensive so you can always get another in a smaller size.

Mine the scratchy part covers the soft. And it's actually a back band, meant to be used with fun upside down, but I couldn't carry the so I've been trying it on belly rightside up. Can't use spare mags slots but it works for now.

This is more of a joke than a suggestion. Get a P-3AT. It's so ugly no one will want it. I can't recommend a Kel Tec to anyone. I have 2 that run flawlessly but the hassle was way more than anyone should have to endure to own a lightweight pistol.

I would look at a Ruger SP101. The SP101 is dependable, no plastic and affordable. The 357 cartridge offers plenty of stopping power. I am not the OP. I couldn't justify the jump from .380 to 9mm. Both cartridges are not one shot stoppers. The 357 on the other hand is a one shot stopper. If you miss the muzzle blast will scare the hell out of a Navy Seal. I don't like the handle of the SP101 but it does hit where I am pointing it.

Yes, it carries well in a belly band. You can't use a cheapo Velcro belly band. It requires a hook and loop belly band.

Does anybody know of a belly band that has a hard surface covering the trigger area to create an effective trigger guard? I can't seem to find one but perhaps I am looking in the wrong areas.

Most people that I've seen have had something like that sewn into theirs. As for mine, I wear it tight enough that there's now way to engage the trigger through the material.

Shouldn't be too difficult to attach something stiff enough to block external objects from reaching the trigger guard area. 2-3" square section of leather sewn onto the outside over where your trigger guard would be. Sounds pretty easy.

Find someone with the heavy duty sewing equipment and you're in business. Lots of cowboys (yes, men) sew leather for belts, holsters, tack gear, etc. Shouldn't be hard to find.

Those of you that use a belly band holster, do you have trouble with the Velcro really irritating the skin?

The Velcro on mine never contacts my skin.
