I wanted something like for a fanny with a dedicated concealed carry area. I chose this because it has one. It's also to be an addition to my fanny pack. I like how I can wear it horizontally or vertically. For me this to be on the small side. My 9 mm SW MP Shield Plus is a very snug fit! There's barely enough room for an extra magazine. The gun pocket zips open and closed with little effort. The other areas are also on the small side. Wallet, keys, coin purse don't leave room for much else. I am giving this the benefit of a doubt. It does look nice, seems well made. This is something to consider if you prefer waist bags.
