If you are like me (and countless others who have been working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic), then maybe you’ve gotten used to wearing comfortable athletic pants (e.g., sweatpants) for everyday wear. I’ve even been known to occasionally go to the office in my “dressy” sweatpants. Well, now Springfield Armory has partnered with Alexo Athletica to bring out a line of really nice-looking “readywear,” all with the capability to carry a concealed personal-defense handgun efficiently and comfortably. The line includes joggers, lounge pants, leggings, and a variety of complementary lifestyle pieces. My pick of the litter is the Springfield Performance CC Jogger.
The CC Jogger is designed to be comfortable and convenient, and it features a patent-pending double pocket carry system, with multiple ambidextrous pocket locations (right appendix, left appendix, 4 o’clock, and 8 o’clock) for your choice of concealed-carry mode. You can even carry additional magazines, cell phones, and other items in the side slip pockets, back welt pocket, and hidden phone pocket. The CC Jogger has a reinforced, high-compression waistband that easily supports the weight of your concealed handgun and holds it securely in place during activity. It also features a patent-pending Tuck and Carry design that allows you to carry your firearm and tuck in your shirt if you choose to do so. The pull-on-style CC Jogger has a men’s zipper closure, athletic tapered cut, and a drawstring for added retention.
In addition, the double pocket system is designed for seamless integration of the available ambidextrous DeSantis Flextech pocket holster (MSRP: $29) for additional protection for your gun’s trigger guard. This minimalist holster delivers a smooth, clean draw, and the rubberized exterior coating keeps it secure in the pocket.
Made of poly/rayon/Spandex, the CC Jogger comes in S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL sizes in black, Hex Camo, navy, and olive colors.
