Concealed Carrie has expanded its concealed-carry line of products with the introduction of Compact Carrie and highly anticipated Casual Carrie line.
The new Microfiber Brown Crocodile Crossbody Compact includes a discreet, ambidextrous, exterior firearm compartment for quick, easy access. The zippered main compartment boasts storage pockets for personal items, while the shoulder strap adjusts up to 52”. The bag is also available in black microfiber with black crocodile print leather trim. All Concealed Carrie handbags will fit a compact or sub-compact handgun, including a Glock 19/23, Glock 23/27, J-frame revolver or similar size handgun. A removable, adjustable holster is also included.
Concealed Carrie launched in November 2012 after owner and designer Leslie Deets attended a ladies’ defensive handgun class, and later a concealed carry class. “In both cases, I was struck by the women who came to class wearing holsters strapped to their bodies or toting less desirable military-style concealed carry bags that were far from feminine,” she said. Deets, a self-proclaimed fashionista, designed a concealed-carry option that offered the utmost in both style and quality of material. “Why should women be forced to compromise fashion for function?”
Concealed Carrie’s entire collection of handbags include practical features such as separate concealed-carry compartments that securely conceals the handgun in a safe, yet accessible manner. The inclusion of a removable and adjustable holster allows women to position the firearm depending on their personal preference and directional draw. Several styles also offer a cross-body solution with the use of a removable and adjustable shoulder strap.
Stay organized and protected with Concealed Carrie’s new Compact Carrie, available in Bright Red Leather ($149), Cool Blue Leather ($149) or Casual Carrie’s Mustard with brown trim ($109). The double sided design acts as a wallet on one side while keeping your firearm separate and secure on the other. The zippered main compartment is full of dividers for currency, credit cards and personal items. The adjacent double-zippered hook-and-loop-lined firearm compartment safely stores your handgun. Carry the Compact Carrie by its removable wrist strap or simply grab it and go.
Expansion plans to the Classic Carrie include the launch of a new Casual Carrie product line and upcoming new line of athletic wear called “Carrie’s Closet” for the active female shooter on the go.
