Rothco 3 Season Concealed Carry Jacket, Black, Medium

The Rotcho Black Concealed Tactical Military Jacket features a classic zipper closure and is made of high-quality cotton with a polyester inner lining.

On the front, it has 2 quite big hand warmer pockets with zippers which by the way are very sturdy and won’t easily fail even if you zip and unzip the jacket often as this is a usual problem with zippers. Also, it has button adjustments on the waist and the cuffs to help you get more comfort as you wish.

The holsters are large and will handle most pistol sizes if you plan to carry one with you. However as a small tip remember that a jacket is an easily disposable piece of clothing so you can forget your gun in the jacket and someone who shouldn’t touch it (a kid for example) might cause you a lot of trouble.
