Similar in function to the PT-ONE, the PT-2 concealment holster is a single pouch version that utilizes a smaller footprint and narrower belt. Designed to be worn outside the waistband (OWB) or even inside the waistband (IWB) for concealed carry with casual dress or athletic apparel. Although the pouch size can accommodate some full size semi-autos, the PT-2 concealment holster was designed to fit compact semi-autos or smaller revolvers. The PT-2 concealment holster is comfortable, lightweight, and can accommodate a variety of concealed carry positions. Ambidextrous design. Extra magazine pouches available.

I run or hike 5 to 10 miles daily and really like this holster. About two years ago it dawned on me that the only places I didn't carry were the ones where I needed to most. During my runs I take bicycle trails which have a mugging story every two or three months. Or I pass through neighborhoods that could be described as slightly shady. I also often run after dark. I'm a 200 lbs male but that wouldn't stop our local thugs. They tend to work in teams. I've actually been attacked by off leash dogs.
I tried three other athletic type belly band holsters. One being the PT-One sister product of the PT-2. I liked the PT-One but it just felt too big for me to comfortably run with. If you want to carry a larger frame pistol I'd go with the PT-One. The other two didn't hold up in comfort or quality.
I carry a Glock 42 (used to carry a Glock 26 or Ruger LCR) in it daily for workouts. I carry one extra mag in a pouch, my iPhone in the smartphone pouch (I don't use earphones) and my CCW in between the plastic wall and the padding . It's very comfortable and since I live in an open carry state I don't bother trying to cover it up. It would be easy to conceal though. Most people just think it's an athletic sport pouch carrying super secret workout monitoring equipment or some sort of superman protein bars anyway, it doesn't look like a holster. It does print though and I know some people recognize it for what it is. I wear it extremely tight around my waist to keep the bouncing to a minimum.
I have two gripes and both aren't really related to the holster but addressing them made carrying while running much more pleasant for me.
1. My Glock 26 was a little heavy/think for long runs even in this holster so I'd recommend a smaller workout pistol or to use the PT-One. The Ruger LCR worked better but I still prefer the PT-2 with a smaller thinner pistol.
2. I really didn't like the idea of having a loaded Glock (or Ruger) with one in the pipe bouncing up and down as I run. I'm sure it is safe but I wasn't comfortable with the idea so I purchased an additional Minimal Inside Carry (MIC) holster (just covers the trigger and trigger guard) and dummy corded it to the PT-2 belt. That way if I draw the MIC will pull off the trigger guard. I've practiced and it doesn't add any time to the draw. Speaking of drawing, this is not a quick draw holster and never will be. Practice to get as fast as you can. If you don't know what a MIC holster is Google it. Make sure you get one that can be dummy corded to the belt.
I've used the PT-2 since the beginning of February and it's held up well. With all of the use I expect to wear at least one out per year. I replace my running shoes every two months and they're way more expensive then a PT-2. I just made the holster part of my necessary workout equipment.

This is the first time in over 5 years that I have finally found a comfortable concealed holster. Some days my hubby is not even aware that I have it on. Only regret was ordering the short and it was just a tiny bit too snug. I have since ordered the extension and fits well now. If you are a Senior and considering purchasing, I say this is the one for you!

Was about to go out for my run when the mailwoman came by. So happy I received it so fast (2 days with the free shipping option). I tried fitting it above my shorts line, but it stuck out too far, so I moved it above the muffin top and right below the bra line. It fit great for my P238 w/laser. The pocket was big enough for it to fit placed vertically. Stayed in place perfectly. I bought the standard size thinking I would be wearing it at waist level (32" waist), but it still fit around the rib area (28"). I had it tightened as far as it would go. The snap to hold the pocket closed it really just a magnet clasp (like on a purse). It is easy to get past when doing a fast draw.

The belly band is fantastic addition to the assortment of holsters! It's surprisingly comfortable to wear even after a 30 minute run. I'm 6'-0", 240lbs. It's a bit snug around the waist, but still fits for a guy my size. My Glock 27 fits perfectly for a quick draw. I look forward to wearing it for years to come.

This belly band stays in place even during rigorous running. Absolutely love it! I feel so much safer now that I can run while carrying!

I am loving the holster for running and bicycling. It is very comfortable and doesn't bounce.

I've used one of these holsters while running for years now. My wife is commandeering it, so I had to buy another one for her to use.

I haven't been able to find a good holster for running, until I got this bad boy. Fits great, holds my kahr cm9 just right, and keeps the sweat away. Five stars.

I received my PT2 very quickly after ordering. It's very soft and comfortable. Easy to adjust intuitive set up. I ran four miles with it the day I received it and it performed very well. It's the best I've found so far for running and carrying my G26. I also ordered the phone holder to hold my iPhone and it works well also.
The only thing I think where it could improve is using Pull-the-dot or 'one way' snaps like what come on a lot of holsters. I did occasionally have the top snap come open while bending over working in my garden. Something that Pull-the-dot snaps would cure.
Overall I'm happy with this holster and would and have recommend this holster to others.

Used PT-2 Holster for the first time today hiking. The holster carried my Glock 26 very comfortably sitting, standing, squatting down and any position I had to get into during the hike. It was well concealed under a fairly tight athletic T-Shirt. Definitely the best all around holster for hiking with summer weight clothing that I have tried.
