    Good grief, so much gear to buy. It never ends...
    The drop-leg is designed specifically to stay clear of equipment on your torso - body armor, etc - so, it will stay clear of your pack also.

    They have a vertical strap that attaches to your belt and the holster hangs off of that, a horizontal strap(s) holds the holster to your thigh.

    You can take your pack, your jacket, etc all off and not have to take the drop-leg holster off. While you're eating, lounging around camp or answering the call, your pistol will be right at your side.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    I use a simple Blackhawk holster for my S&W 40. it is designed to be an outside the waistband holster and I just strap it to my hip belt on my Kuiu 5000 pack. It works great.

    Ditto on the leg/thigh holster. Been carrying my Glock 20 this way for a couple years. Works great.

    I guess it depends on what pistol you carry. I used to carry my GP100 .357 in a hip holster cross draw on a separate belt and kept it loose enough not to interfer with my packs hip belt. Lately I've tried to shed weight and carry a SW 340PD. 5 shot .357 that weighs in at 12 oz. empty. I have a nylon holster that I just put on my belt and it rides below the hip belt.

    They are great holsters. That's the very one I use to pack my S&W 25-7 and a S&W 629 Mountain Gun!

    I have carried on my hip...the issue is two fold...my pack doesn't ride properly on my hips and my weapon is not readily accessible when under my jacket and then the hip belt of my pack.

    I discovered the Safepacker, which was designed for rescue workers to carry when fast roping, working in high angle rescue operations, etc. (I forget where I ordered mine...but now see that Dillon Precision is carrying them in the last issue that just arrived.) I hang the Safepacker on the Mollie straps of my J34 waist belt, strong side, and it is protected, secure, readily available, and my pack rides properly.

    I use the safepacker as well. I have really liked it. Its very versatile in how to attach it to your pack and I have no complaints. You can order them from midway, or a bunch of other retailers. I ordered directly from the factory when I bought mine, but I think they are not doing direct sales any more.

    I have a Badlands super day pack and it has a spot for a pistol. I carry my .41 mag in there comfortably! I love it!
