    I use a Safariland thigh rig that I wear high...and I have a holster for anything that I would carry with a carrier...to get through the briars and brambels...hopefully I won't be in a pasture diving behind cow patties for cover
    I have a thigh rig, may try it. Think id rather have it on the carrier, chest mt. Going to test drive the armor by going deer hunting with it on. We shall see.

    It is a thigh rig but it is really set up for low hip. The belt loop is short and only the lower leg strap is used and there is a good angle to it. It rides just low enough to clear the carrier. Hope that makes sense. The holster does have thumb retention as well.

    a search of kydex molle holster gets some good results

    Can you sit in your truck with it on? One day you might not be able to call a timeout and take it off your leg before having to drive your truck
