Question for dudes that pocket carry: I've been carrying a knife in my front right pocket since I was 16. If I don't have it there it feels like leaving the house without my cell phone. I just feel weird. What do you guys do with your blades while strong side pocket carrying? Most of my collection is Spyderco so I can easily change it to tip-up left pocket carry but it just feels weird.

You convinced me. I just ordered one.

When you get the belt, you need to trim it down. Don't trim too much off at a time. Work your way down. Also, size it to your iwb carry, plus a wee bit extra for possible future "expansion" think ahead. Mine is at about 42. I'm about a 38/40 jean size. Pants need room for the pistola too.
The buckle attaches solid. That alligator clamp digs into the material and you also use the the 2 screws.

My daily knife is about 2.5 inch blade with a pocket clip.
When LCP is in right front pocket the knife is clipped to far right side of right rear pocket. Just as handy and it's far enough over that I don't sit on it.

I'm just about convinced on the ratchet belt too.

If you are going to pocket carry NEVER EVER NEVER carry anything else in that pocket. EVER.


Typically I carry a skinny wallet in my left front pocket, keys in my right front, knife in right rear and firearm OWB. On the few occasions I have pocket carried it goes in the right front and the keys find a new home in another pocket. Feels weird but you get used to it.

On the few times I pocket carried, it went into Left ( weak hand ) pocket . They keys, etc went into right pocket along with the knife, coins, etc .

On deep back burner thought about cargo pockets , but haven't yet gone so far as to work out a method .
