The Ridge Packin’ Tee ® – A Woman’s Guide
The Ridge Packin’ ® Tee Concealed Carry Garment for Women
In a 2015 study, “More than half of women (55.6%) participating in a study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation said they intend to purchase at least one firearm in the next 12 months. That finding and many others reflect the growing popularity of firearms ownership by women, who represent the fastest growing segment of the shooting sports”, and “More than 42% of women have a concealed carry permit for their state of residence.”
If you are considering a concealed carry permit in your State of residence, there are many options out there for clothing and accessories, including the Ridge Packin’ Tee ®.
Why should you consider the Packin’ Tee ®? Versatility. No matter if you’re a right or left-hand draw or carry a large or small firearm, the Ridge Packin’ Tee ® adapts and is designed for versatility, comfort, and style. You can always have your firearm at your side without the fit issues and comfort restrictions from standard holsters, and no need for jackets or other heavy outerwear to conceal your weapon. Ridge has designed and manufactured a Packin’ Tee ® specifically for women.
What Makes the Women’s Tee Different than the Men’s?
- Scoop Neck – the women’s Packin Tee ® features a scoop neck, while the men’s is available in a sleeveless version with a V-neck or crew neck.
- Shorter Torso – the torso length is shorter than the men’s
- Women’s Fit – designed to specifically fit a woman’s anatomy
- Size – Women can choose sizes Small (4 – 6), Medium (8 – 10), Large (12 – 14), or Extra Large (16 – 18). Men’s sizes run Small – 4X.
Can I Wear a Men’s Packin’ Tee ®?
Yes! You may have a longer torso than average so you may find that a men’s Packin’ Tee ® fits and functions better for you, particularly if you choose to carry a large-sized handgun. Remember that the Packin’ Tee ® is intended to have a compression fit, snug and close to the body, to keep your handgun in place and secure. If you wear a women’s small, the men’s Packin Tee ® will likely fit you too loosely. The best way to determine which Packin’ Tee ® is right for you is to try them on and compare.
