I am an avid freshwater kayaker (sometimes in salty in and around Sarasota Bay, but mostly later afternoon & early evenings in the Everglades. If you've ever been there as it's getting dark, you will come across a sub-section of humanity that you didn't know existed. I always carry there and this is a Concealed Carry solution that works for me. This is my kayaking/fishing vest (and a pic of a Cardinal 4 for those that remember quality Swiss made spinning reels). The center compartment/pouch unzips (for me right to left with my left hand. The 'flap' falls forward (the is a white 'shelf' inside for fly-tying, changing plugs, spinners, etc). Once the flap falls under it's own weight, I can reach up with my right hand and grab the grip of the .38 special. The holster is a LEFT handed IWB and the metal clip on the IWB slides into slot #2 of the 3 slots, making very easy access to the handgun. this shows the 'back' of the holster where the clip is...This set-up will work with just about and small (either revolver or SA/DA or DA semi).
