    True. No disagreement, from me.

    I tried some of the better belly bands, in the Eighties and Nineties, as such trusted writers/reviewers as Mas Ayoob deemed them to be more-or-less acceptable. None of them clicked, for me. I revisited the concept, after I retired, and my major activities became walking/running the dogs, photographing wild things, and the pursuit of groceries. Fortunately, the Enigma came along before I wasted too many resources on lesser mousetraps.

    Donít tread on volcanos!

    Yes! But what I was inferring is that I do not have many (any?) suitable AIWB holsters laying around. I did the Notify on the Phlster site, when I manage to get one I will start figuring it out.

    Yeah, and after I retire in a few years I will probably spend a fair amount of time on road trips, and this could be nice.

    Now that these are out in greater numbers, does anyone have any observations on wearing one while exercising, especially with a lot of position changing?

    Any word on when the Enigma will be available again? I was on the original wait list and it showed out of stock when I tried to place my order the day after I received the notification. I put myself back on the list the same day but have not received any further notifications or seen it available to order when I have checked (almost daily) the website.

    Thanks
    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    If you go to the Phlster Concealment Workshop group on Facebook itís full of people posting about their various experiences with the enigma, everything from running a class with it, to wearing pajamas, to running and working out. I donít have one yet so I canít speak from personal experience, but it does seem to do well with lots of body movement.

    Recently took a two day shotgun class with Symtac (which I learned tons from) along with driving three hours each way wearing an Enigma with Phlster Pro. No issues cropped up.

    DC_P, we are only selling the Enigma specific holsters, not the Enigma's themselves. Thanks

    As for price, not 100% certain yet. The initial workup looks to be able $8.
    Sorry to bother, still interested in this but haven't seen an update here. Will there be an email alert when these go up for sale?

    Still waiting on the thin washers, the important ones for fine tuning.
    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    On Thursday I bent down to pick up a pen and Enigma pocked me in my dick. I decided not to share that experience on Facebook.

    To me the leg strap remains the weakest part of a design. If it isn't tight, it slides down to the knee. In the above event I re-tightened it during a course of a day and must've made it too tight. It pulled the holster just a few cm down but that was enough...
    I wasn't brave enough to exercise in one before, even less brave now. Other than cinching the waist strap very tightly, there's not much that prevents it from moving.

    ďWell," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.
