Default Jackets that cover the booty

Has anyone found a jacket that will go down low enough to still cover your pant line when in "riding position"?
It wasn't a huge deal to me until now. I always carry my gun on my side in a in the waist band holster. It hurts like hell to wear it on my side so I move it to my back. Problem is my leather icon doesn't cover it. It'll move to the point it'll tuck under it so the gun is exposed.
All my jackets are too big for me at the moment so it's a great time to get a new one!

I had men's Honda joe rocket leather jacket at one point and it had what looked like a butt flap lol it worked though! I haven't seen this on any wand jacket? I like the fit of the woman's jackets better. I don't feel like I'm riding in a leather bag.

Most touring style jackets come down a little bit in the back, though I doubt any riding jacket will fix your particular problem. Many jackets will attach to a pair of riding pants, but I suspect such an arrangement will be quite uncomfortable, to say the least.

Thinking it was to increase protection in case of a spill, i would have said that some back protectors do a good job of covering the tailbone, but a back protector is too tight to put over a gun.

do you really need a gun while you ride?

Yes I actually have to have one on me if I'm in the city I work - even just passing through which I do a lot.
I haven't pissed anyone off yet but there are still a few that would love to say they killed me just because I'm the female of my department.

Hmm some attachment probably wouldn't be bad if it was limited. Maybe I could add some elastic type thing to hold it to whatever I'm wearing.

Be careful about it, I crashed over the summer and just the pocket knife I had on tore my leg up and hurt the bone. Luckily my gun was stowed in my saddlebag.

I carried an off duty piece to work my first few years on the job, but I only live a few miles away, so now I don't even bother. The big work gun stays in my locker at work and I keep the 9mm at home and take it with me when I'm off duty. However if I'm on the bike I just stow the gun in a tailbag, it's more likely to hurt you if you fall on it, especially on your back.

Of course it's totally up to you when you feel you need to carry it, but in my case, I realized that with my motorcycle gloves on I really wont be able to get to it quickly under my jacket or be able to fire it well so I don't feel the need to carry it on me. If something happens a fast pop to the nose with carbon fiber knuckles and then speeding off is probably more effective anyway.

I haven't seen you on here in a while, thought you were gone!

In your situation I doubt you will find anything off of the rack. maybe a good tailor could add a few inches of leather to the back of your jacket?

Considering how all but a very few mass shootings happen in "gun free zones" where "common sense" says you "wouldn't need" a gun... (spa, church, mall, school) I can't believe anyone still asks "Do you really need a gun while/at X?"

That said...I cringe to think what would happen to your spine from SOB carry in a get-off.

Never been afraid for my safety anywhere in WV. Lots of poor folk, but by and large honest. I ride there all the time with no firearm at all. A good point about the utility tucked away while wearing riding gloves. Riding skills would seems he be the more useful commodity, effecting escape from potential danger.

Unless your jacket and pants zip together, you shouldn't expect much protection of your midsection during a get-off. It's very easy for the jacket to ride up as you slide, exposing your back, belly, and ribs.

We have a major pill and meth problem here. Also a lot of crazies who think the world owes them. I was hired on march 19th and was on the road a few months then 16 weeks in the academy. Been on the road again since sept 1st and have had 2 people I've delt with that have wanted suicide by cop. Right before I started a co worker had one who got his wish.
My city isn't as bad as Huntington or Charleston but we are in the middle! Huntington is pretty bad. I'd always carry there. They have at least one shooting or stabbing a week.


I can still handle my gun with my riding gloves. I carry an LCP off duty so it's not like ill be top gun kind of shooter to start with. It's pretty accurate but the trigger pull sucks!

Get a jacket that fits that is the only way they offer protection. As mentioned touring jackets offer coverage down past the pockets of jeans.
You could get on of those cool fanny packs all the cool cops are wearing

I used to do the same thing until I found a drop leg pouch. Much easier to carry and lower chance of blowing out a hip or lower vert if I went down.
