    They make a belly band that works well, too. Takes some getting used to though.
    It will get very sweaty, so be prepared to wash it just as much as you wash your workout clothes.

    I had a belly band that i used for a bit. Worked good in all but i wouldnt recommend to the bigger folk, might be a bit uncomftable.

    I just used a belly band that I received from Dutchs, from the pay it forward thread, and it worked great for bike rides. It did not shift or anything. I had my mother in law sew a few velcro straps for a tighter fit since the band he sent me was for a 38+ size waist and I am a 32 inch waist. It works really well. I was even doing rolls in the house and jumping jacks but I have yet to run in it.

    I will definitely buy one once I wear this one out.

    I saw a thread on this forum for a very cool looking fanny pack... I use a remora holster but honestly have not been jogging with it...

    If it was the black one with a G21 and a mag in it that was mine. I use it almost every day still and it serves my purpose extremely well.

    Dutchs, I just ran 2 miles with the belly band. I started off carrying at the 5 but then went to the 3 o'clock position because the handle of the xd40 was pressing against my butt every time I took a stride. After adjusting to the 3 it all went super smooth.
    Another thing is how tight you put it. I jumped around in my house, and kept tightening until it moved very little before I went outside.
    I had an under shirt on as a sweat barrier then a regular t-shirt.
    It did affect my breathing a little bit but nothing major.
    Pretty Good for 85°and sunny.
