Default Yoga pants and gun belt

My daughter likes to wear yoga pants/tights. They have no belt loops. I’m trying to get her a gun belt for the range - not a concealed carry situation - where she can have a holster, two magazine holder each for her pistol and AR. Can you ladies recommend a belt setup for that? Thank you.

What about a duty belt? Holder and holster for all the needs, but no change in clothes and it's easy to toss on/toss off.

The PHLSTER Engima is a game changer. Check it out. I have one and I love it.

Hey boss, I'm a female and am familiar with both guns and yoga pants. LOL

A duty belt is good for easy on/off, however, it still needs to be held in place with keepers. Without belt loops, any belt will slide around the shooter's yoga pants when she's trying to unholster the weapon or retrieve magazines.

The Enigma is a cool holster/belt; but, this won't fit the shooter's desired application. She wants to holster a weapon, plus pistol and AR magazines.

mrboma's link to the leggings with belt loops look like a good compromise.

I went through this with my wife. 5.11 used to make these but they are a unicorn. Regardless- they were in the same $100 range... for yoga pants WTF???

She bought a cheap pair with a high waste, flipped the waste down and cut out spaces for the buckle, holster and mags, then sewed it up. I think they were less than $20 at Costco.

Yeah, the 5.11 range tights. They were an interesting offering for female shooters who like yoga pants, but they don't seem to be offered anymore.

The wife looked into those back when they came out.
They lost against the Vakandi because they didn't have any pockets for the barney mag.

Well, yes, technically it is an option.

I mentioned upthread that "The Enigma is a cool holster/belt; but, this won't fit the shooter's desired application. She wants to holster a weapon, plus pistol and AR magazines."

The daughter isn't trying to conceal carry - she needs a belt for the range. That Enigma belt/holster contraption does offer magazine holders, but adding two pistol mags and two AR mags is way over the top considering a good portion of the belt real estate is taken up by fasteners. A conventional belt used with yoga pants that have belt loops makes more sense than a $309 range belt. But, certainly the Enigma is an option for her. The expensive investment may be more palatable if she would also like to use the Enigma as a conceal carry holster. Otherwise, that's a crap ton of belt for yoga pants.

Thanks for the link, Mike! Good to know.

OP, depending on your daughter's anatomy & physique, I usually wear Columbia shorts with belt loops for competition, regardless of what temperature it is. I'll throw a pair of jogging pants over them if it's too cold to keep gear consistent.

Any range/duty belt will do. You won't even need pants to use one. <g>
