Good alternative to fanny-pouch

By Jorge

from Texas

I was able to fit either a G26 (with flush and extended mags) or a G19 (with a standard mag) in this pouch without issue. Some other reviews said a G19 would not fit--wrong!


Well made but not very useful

By Nizdur

from Chicago, Illinois

I bought this product to add an additional compartment to my COVRT ZAP 6 covert carry bag. I didn't find a good way to incorporate it with the COVRT ZAP 6. The COVRT Pistol pouch can only fit a pistol the same size of a Glock 26 or smaller. The COVRT Pistol Pouch works okay on the belt, but only horizontally. It does not attach vertically to a belt. I found the badge compartment on the COVRT Pistol Pouch to not be useful. To me, the COVRT Pistol Pouch does not meet my needs and isn't worth the money. It is well made, but in need of a redesign for improved function and use. My COVRT Pistol Pouch sits in a box with other useless holsters I have bought and field tested over the years. I look forward to a redesign of this product for future consideration.


Won't carry vertically on pants belt.

By Jake

from Little Rock, AR

I purchased this pouch to function as an "open carry" holster in a state that doesn't have open carry. I assumed it would fit vertically on a belt. Disappointed.


Not for belt carry

By Billcop

from Detroit, MI

After trying to find a reverse picture that would show how to attach to a belt (or ANY instructions) I took a chance and ordered one. The only apparent way to use this is with military type molle attachment. Really dumb for a "Covrt/Covert" bag to hide your pistol in. A subtle bag that uses MILITARY attachments......In my profession, that says "COP! Shoot here first". If I need a backpack to attach it to, I'll just use a backpack (shakes head).


Great concealment pouch

By Terry

from Iowa

I really like this product. It fits my Glock 23 just fine, it doesn't fit a full size though. When I first got it I wanted to figure out a way to attach it to a normal belt so I got some nylon dutyman belt keepers and they did the trick. I really liked wearing it when I was traveling on vacation. Noone can tell what I have and think its just an extra pouch. I did cut off the 5.11 tag in the front because I thought it kind of defeated the purpose of concealing if everyone knows its 5.11. I also really like having the quick badge holder, its right there if you need it. I personally prefer this to a fanny pack because it feels more confortable to me. I use it all the time now when I'm out and about instead of a IWB. If anyone would like to attach it to your belt I would suggest a nylon belt keeper that is for a duty belt, it really does the trick.


Nice addition to first line of defense!

By Chris

from Northeast

I love this latest addition to the market! My hopes, are that this marks a new trend in "never seen before items for concealment".... One can easily carry a backup "device" within this item which allows one to have that "item available at a moments notice. Allows one to appear as if their part of the "pack" without being part of the pack (if you know what I mean). Also good for Border Patrol (daypack)... And/or... as I said, undercover operatives trying to blend in with the crowd. Nice to have attachable pouches/bags/accessories which one can apply to their backpack and other bags (such as as 5.11 patented "Quickstick" or "MOLLE" type of attachments too (with slight adjustment. Only wish that it came with an "belt attachment" too, so that one could (if necessary) "attach" this to ones belt... Although it was primarily designed for the CVRT backpack/daypack usage.


COVRT Pistol Pouch

By Steve

from Hillsborough, NC

This pistol pouch is too small for a full-size semi-auto such as a Springfield XD/XDM or Glock. Will fit a subcompact ok, if you don't have a mag extension. Guess I'll just put it away until I get my subcompact.


Not well thought out.

By JV3499

from Pittsburgh, PA

What in the world were the designers thinking. This is too small to hold a glock 23 with a tlr-1 on it!!! Come on folks firearms mounted tactical lights are here to stay. I wanted a nice modular, coordinated system of matching luggage for off duty carry, Thought this was it but I can't fit a glock 23 in the holster with a light attached. Oh well,, on its way back. I have enough unloved holsters you can have this one back. Sorry, like many other things I have looked out in this collection, excellent ideas, just missing that finishing touch that would make it perfect for off-duty or covert leo.


Great Craftsmanship but Too Small

By Olde

from Daytona Beach, FL

Very well made. Great front pocket for magazine. Could not get a Sig SP2022 with laser and 15 rnd mag to fit. For sizing, without mag can just zip it closed. This Sig is a medium frame and laser did not appear to interfere. 5.11 just needs to add 3/4in all the way around ... and belt loops.


Very nice, but room for improvement.


from Ohio

I like the product very much. It neither looks like a holster nor a fanny pack, well done! It neatly stores a small 1911 and 2 spare mags without being overstuffed. I would like to be able to strap it onto my belt when taking a late night walk or day hiking. A removeable belt attachment should be easy to design and would take it to the next level.
I also agree that the 5.11 tag goes against the covert intent. I blackened mine with a Sharpie. Maybe you could relocate it to the rear or inside?
