The Blackhawk Stache N.A.C.H.O. Belly Band answers a conundrum for women who carry a concealed firearm: How to carry concealed in non-tactical clothing without "printing," or accidentally displaying your firearm. The N.A.C.H.O. is the latest addition to Blackhawk's Stache family of concealed-carry solutions, and it's nacho grandmother's CCW. (NRA Women accepts full responsibility for the previous terrible pun.) That delicious acronym actually stands for "Non-Conventional Adaptive Carry Holster Option," and it's a great way to carry concealed even in light clothing. In fact, the Stache N.A.C.H.O. Belly Band was designed for concealed carriers who don't want to leave their pistols behind just because they're rocking board shorts, gym shorts, sweatpants, yoga pants or a skirt.

Don't mind the masculine moniker "Stache"; your upper lip is fine. You should think of "Stache" as a portmanteau of "stash" and "cache," because this is the gear that will replace the pockets your summer clothing doesn't have. Constructed with a 4" tall, double-ply elastic band and a hook-and-loop closure, the N.A.C.H.O. Belly Band hugs your body for a secure fit. Rigid 1.5" double layer SCUBA webbing secures a Glock 19-sized Stache IWB holster or similar system (holster not included), plus other pockets hold cell phones, flashlights or spare magazines.

Of course, you won't wear that belly band if it's uncomfortable, and that's where the Stache N.A.C.H.O. really shines. It’s designed for all-day comfort with rounded band ends to reduce hot spots. There's also a generous 3-D mesh backing that creates padding and breathability when things get hot. The double-ply elastic band is strong enough to support your firearm while also flexing around your body for optimized comfort. Available in five sizes from extra small to extra large, the N.A.C.H.O. Belly Band can be adapted for multiple carry positions including appendix, hip, behind-the-hip and upper torso carry.

The MSRP Stache N.A.C.H.O.'s MSRP is $44.95; Blackhawk.com.
