Hope you like it! It really is the best solution I have found yet. I live in Waco Texas and it is hot and humid here most of the year, you really can carry with shorts and a tucked in tee shirt, my standard garb when not at work.
This summer, we drove down to florida for vacation and I wore it sitting in the car the whole way there and back (except for the three hours in Alabama). At the time, I was carrying a Taurus .357 snub but my Glock 23 and the M&P carry just as well. The M&P has a longer butt and if you really look hard, you can see the edge of the butt through the pants. The beauty of it is where it is located, most people don't want to get caught staring at that area... Even if they do see it, they can't tell what it is.
I know this sounds like a Smart Carry commercial but I feel when I find a product that really works well, they deserve some free advertising.

Depends on weather and circumstances. I usually carry in a fanny pack going to/from work and on my lunch time walks cause I'd rather not be seen by my employers/coworkers putting on/taking off an IWB or Belt Holster. No use pushing they've never made a case of my having a gun in the car in the parking lot. Since most nights I'm last out of the building I like the fact if I'm working late I can bring the fanny pack in or even do a IWB after the rest of my coworkers are gone.
If I have a cover garment in cooler weather I'll wear IWB or on the Belt. I've found some nice fleece vests that work well with an IWB. Walking the dog at night I usually have on the Belt. I've even taken to carrying my Glock 19 with attached TLR-2 Laser/Light in a belt holster while dog walking since I don't have to worry too much about printing while walking - just have to make sure the cover garment doesn't ride up to expose the holster.
Sometimes in the winter I put my Glock 26 in a pocket holster and carry in the pocket of my parka.
I'll probably use my new M&P when I get for IDPA and USPSA competition so I probably won't be carrying it, though if I find I shoot well with it I may be looking at getting a compact for carry.

What about good old fashioned Pocket Carry? With a decent pocket holster and a light J frame or small auto, you can carry without worrying about exposing the gun. This avoids panicking the general public and reduces the chances of explaining yourself to the police.

I carry my smaller guns in SmartCarry, pocket holster. My M&P's in OWB, either Kytac Sooper Hooper for the full sized or compact in a Comptac Paddle. The SmartCarry is a great option for a j frame or a PM9.

currently im carrying my sig mexican style, with a long t-shirt so theres no metal to body contact. The most comfortble mode of carry. Wouldnt try it with a glock, mp, or other striker fire pistol with one in the pipe.
