Default Concealed compression shirt?

I am looking to order a compression shirt for concealment. Does anyone here have direct experience with them? I usually wear over shirts, and like under armour shirts.

I've seen them at my lgs. It's basically an under armour shirt with pockets under the armpits. If you pick one up I'd be interested in a report. I recommend oiling your firearm and mags before use due to the placement.

I have been using the shirt for a while now. I think it is great. No printing with a full size 1911, and comfortable.

It took some getting use to, but I can draw smoothly with it. Not as quick as when it is on my hip. I can draw standing, sitting, kneeling, driving with no issues. My wife and friends have no idea I have it on.

Very cool. I've always been tempted to pick one up.

I wear a lot of underarmour in my non work life...so this post excites me. For those of you that have one..how does it compare to some of the others on the market..some of the reviews I have read on similar items noted that concealability was an issue...and then cost of course..have not read any reviews of this specific product so curious to hear comparisons.

Mine fits 90% like underarmor, exception being the two pockets. It works very well for me. My wife has taken to frisking me to see if I have it on. I ordered mine from masters of concealment for 49.00. They have different styles, and two colors. I got the black V neck to go under button up shirts. Drawing took practice, that was a labor of love, but I can draw and shoot smoothly standing, kneeling, sitting.
