I'm generally pretty slack about concealment. I wear the gun burkha as much for its voluminous "document pockets" as I do to avoid having to talk to strange randos about their favorite kind of pistol or brand of holler points. I'd think that anyone with half a brain realizes that the voluminous unbuttoned shirt is there for a reason.

Still, I do wear them and the season has definitely arrived for replacing the lightweight Royal Robbins summertime ones with something a little less airy and breathable. These days I've been favoring the Propper shirts in the cooler months. I like that the document pockets have zippers on them. They keep things like earbuds and notebooks from falling out better than the single or double velcro tabs on the lightweight summer shirts I use.
