It looks interesting but I am concerned about how bulky it is under the shirt and also which version to get crossdraw or strongside.
Looking for input from those that have tried it out.
I hope my response isn't irrelevant, because I haven't tried that holster, but I do have a SportHolster (don't think it's made anymore), which is sort of a small-of-the-back belly band holster. It looks a lot
less bulky than that truss holster, which looks like you're trying to basically hide a small tactical vest under your shirt, and let me tell you, I found that the only conditions I could wear that holster were exactly the conditions I didn't need it.
Because it's wrapping all the way around your middle, it will be ungodly hot and sweaty in warm weather. And, in cold weather, with jackets and sweaters and such giving you all kinds of better concealment options, you don't really need it.
I couldn't find a concealment problem that it solved that was worth the drawbacks.
