    "Like most brilliant solutions, it's actually quite simple...the enclosed semi stretchy gun beklt is run through internal loops, and provides enough rigidity to hold a firearm. To keep hardware slim, Arrowhead uses an ingenious magnetic locking buckle" - CLAY MARTIN, GUNS AMERICA 

    "For those of you who live an active lifestyle, the good news is that you no longer have to compromise your safety because you can’t take your gun on a jog or because you have to employ off-body carry at the gym...Arrowhead Tactical Apparel is ensuring you’re comfortably prepared at all times" - EUGENE NIELSEN, US CONCEALED CARRY

    "For an athletic apparel company that has chosen to tackle the problem of effectively concealing a defensive tool, Arrowhead Tactical Apparel has brought a solution that erodes one more excuse of not going to the gym" - FORREST COOPER, RECOIL MAGAZINE

    "The real question remains: How does it work? Impressively well. When carrying a handgun, the Carrier Retention system is plenty beefy enough to secure your firearm against your body without any flopping around...As a fitness is impressive in every way. I lifted weights, including squat and deadlift, in it, and it provides ideal range of motion" - ERIC CONN, NRA SHOOTING ILLUSTRATED
