The product was/is the Under Cover Comfort holster shirt and I'd posted about it in an 'OT Gun Nuts' thread over at OT.
That thread was toward deep cover concealed carry products & techniques toward situations I run into such as biking, kayaking, going to business and social meetings where 'cover' is not realistic/feasible, and comfortable carry while otherwise moving my body in a vigorous way such as dancing, exercising/jogging, and pretty much any other situation where conventional concealed carry with a IWB holster just won't work.
Unfortunately haters and knuckleheads flew into that thread and took it off track with all manner of moronic and completely ignorant commentary toward oh why do you need that and who needs to carry a gun while riding a bike...you live in a [quote fingers]safe area[/quote fingers] type conversation.
If you run a search at OT toward my name and IIRC keyword 'Goblin' that thread should come up. I'd posted a number of alternative holster products that I'd found and was then and still up to 2 weeks ago researching toward my own application.
At the end of the day I choose to go with the UCC product ahead of several other competing holster shirt products as well as the SmartCarry and the CameBak 'Goblin' too. The reasons are numerous and I'll share those with you in a subsequent post if it's something you would like to know.
In the meantime though there is an excellent long running thread that has been running over at DefensiveCarry.com (formerly CombatCarry) as started and updated by a long time UCC product user who is a real world non-mall ninja Federal law enforcement officer that uses and highly suggests the UCC product, with vigor.
I won't say more to that as you can read in his own words his own description toward his again real world use of this product.
The following are two threads in specific that I would suggest as reading from the user who goes by the name 'fed_wif_a_sig':
* "UC Comfort in action"
He also even went so far as to make a video showing how the shirt works and what number of items he can carry (extreme!) comfortably:
1ea Sig 229
2ea Sig 229 magazines
1ea expandable batton
1ea Spyderco knife
1ea Surefire Executive flashlight
1ea pair of titanium hinged handcuffs
1ea tube of OC Spray
Another thread there that he has been involved with and described in gross detail the use of this product amongst other users doing same is this, and it's significantly shorter/quicker to read than the first thread for those who don't have the patience for reading crap as I do:
* UCComfort On You Tube
I will warn you that the website for this company is completely sketchy in layout and setup. They run multiple domains against .net and .com and have IIRC three .com domain names that all vary to some degree in content and layout but essentially tell the same product marketing tale. They also have some IMHO somewhat cheesy secondary products available that as a whole frankly leaves me thinking; 'What are they thinking about!....Are these people serious?!...This is yet another reason why it's so damn tough for small businesses thanks to perceptions alone due to operations like this!'.
Read my last post at the first DC.com thread as I detail my own experiences in trying to order this product.
I don't know guys, it's coming off to me this company as being very much sketchy even as the product in specific itself by all pointers appears to work and work well.
Funny thing though, I work by profession with product and amongst that do _a lot_ of work post 9/11 toward law enforcement, military, and para-military products and tools. As well I know a lot of people from both ends of the spectrum be they buyers & end users/operators to dealer/distributors, resellers, and industry product marketers. As always when thinking to spend my hard earned I was not born with a money tree money on some product or service I did my homework and checked around. I came across no one who was familiar with this product as an actual user first hand. I talked to 5 real people who I thought would or should know about this item due to their profession and associations and not one of them had ever seen muchless used one. But (!) four of them had said they have heard about it and were intrigued but not enough to spend their own money or that of their employer on the item. They asked that I let them know what I discover and decide, buy or no buy.
This for me is a double whammy as I am genuinely interested toward my own use which is how the project started. It's now though developed asper a phone call I made to become work associated as well as a client of my company that is a huge dealer/distributor and long time client of mine has taken a tad bit of interest upon me contacting the marketing mgr. to inquire about the product, and they now having become aware of it might maybe reach out to the vendor to see about setting up a distribution deal. They are looking to me to see if I like the product and that was a part of my decision prcoess to go ahead and submit my order last week on the 21st. This frankly could be huge for them, the UCC people, because my client they are hugemongous and entrenched in the specific marketplace being an 800 lb. gorilla.
Normally during my posts on forums I try to stay away from discussing stuff that maybe work related or more specifically pitching (or knocking) product/services that I may be aware of directly due to my work. It's a matter of ethics and in many cases agreements toward confidentiality.
This product case is what I've indicated and right now I can and will talk toward it as they are not yet directly for real work involved.
Well I know that was a tad bit more than what you had expected or asked for DY but knowing the work that you do and who you are I felt it better to provide you with more than less. I hope this has been of some benefit and when/if my own actual product does arrive you can bet I'll be posting a review of the product in detail.
