It’s tough to carry a firearm concealed all day. After choosing a firearm that balances weight with power and capacity, you have to find a carry system that is comfortable, sturdy and won’t allow the gun to “print” through your clothing. Luckily the holster industry is booming with new products to help women carry their CCW firearms concealed at all times without sacrificing safety or style. Here are some great new hits.

It’s highly durable, lightweight and easy to clean with a damp cloth and gentle soap. While compact, the purse features two additional outside zippered pockets for phones and other accessories. The bag is right- and left-hand capable with an 11-ply steel cable in the shoulder strap, a proprietary gun compartment and a standard Mernickle-crafted holster included.
