Over the years we have received literally countless letters, emails, and phone calls complimenting us on our products. We work hard to earn that praise, however we are still humbled that people actually take the time to contact us. Following are a few:
CCC's design appears tailored for style instead of gun concealment. However, it is cut low enough to hide even an outside the belt hoster with no side vents where the gun butt could catch and become exposed. Tailoring and materials are pleasing.

You folks need a better photographer! The photos on your website don't do justice to the fit, drape and overall look of these vests. I took a chance and bought a Tropic vest that was a closeout special. The vest really looks nice! It doesn't have that tactical or 'shoot me first' look at all. It's nice enough to take to any sort of semi-dressy occasion and yet still goes just fine with jeans. The stiffeners in the pockets do a great job of hiding waist holsters and the cut of the arm holes conceals my big Colt revolver in its' shoulder rig. The Tropic weight is light enough to be comfortable even in 100 degree heat, and the material looks like it would be easy to care for. I have a funny feeling that I'm going to wind up with a few more of these vests!

I wore my CCC vest throughout the entire event (National Tactical Invitational) and it performed wonderfully. I\'ve been wearing it (Tropic Vest) ever since.

Designed for gun carrying, CCC's vests have all of the features one could want, including comfort and an innocuous appearance. I've worn one of these vests for months and enthusiastically endorse them.

I just received the Tropic vest I ordered and all I can say is WOW! What a great looking garment. It's even better looking than the photos on your web site. I wore the vest for the first time last night at dinner with friends and not one of them realized I was wearing a S&W G&P .40 caliber hand gun. Even in the Florida heat, your Tropic vest is the most comfortable, best designed, most attractive conceal garment available. I appreciate your very friendly help over the phone and the delivery was ultra fast - only 2 days! Thanks for a great product. I just received the Tropic vest I ordered and all I can say is WOW!

Concealed Carry Clothiers' vest design prevents you from becoming immediately labeled, unlike other "adventurer wanna-be" styles in the marketplace.
~ Warren Butler, S.W.A.T. Magazine
I received the vest and it fits OK, but the holster [Internal Pocket] is too small. I thought I picked one for a small semi-auto (like a Glock 26 or 27). Instead, the one that you sent looks like it's only big enough for maybe a Colt .380 or a derringer. Can you send one a little larger? I carry the 26 or 27 most of the time, sometimes a 19. Thanks,
~ A. Woods
Thanks, I appreciate your professional handling of this "small" matter; not everyone online has been so upstanding. I've had a couple of less-than-satisfactory experiences with online vendors. It especially upsets me when it's one of "us". We are in a brotherhood (and sisterhood) of freedom-loving patriots and every one of us should honor that designation. But folks like you make up for the few others who don't. Thanks again.

The CCC vest looks "normal" and low key. It's really a "ninja" vest in the sense that...it blends. This is a very well-made and thought-out garment.

The Lightweight Tropic CCC vest can hide a pistol in the hottest weather.

I was having a bit of difficulty finding a quality gun belt to fit the belt loops of some dress pants. All the usual suspects (Galco, Milt Sparks, etc) had a two month back order. I called the folks at Concealed Carry Clothiers and placed an order. They not only had one made and shipped to me within the week, it was shipped to come in between dates of a pretty hectic travel schedule. It is the same quality as the belts made by said usual suspects, in other words, it is superbly made. There are some not to subtle differences which show insight: Buckle holes are on 13/16 centers and the tongue of the belt is single layer as opposed to the thick double layer for the rest of the belt. Great service. Great product.

This is my 6th vest. They look good & wear well. I carry outside the belt & these vests conceal with no problem whatsoever. Thanks for a really nice product.
~ Zack T - TN
I did receive the 2 replacement vests yesterday and they are a perfect fit. Thank you very much for your very, very timely response to my request. It is hard to believe that this kind of service can be acheived these days. Well, I am not going to forget it and definitely will pass the word to my fellow officers (all Federal types).
Thanks. I enjoyed talking with Walt, and looking at your products. Since we (USFWS Special Agents) are a plainclothes force, your vests are an attractive way to conceal handguns, cuffs, oc spray, etc.

The Tropic Vest is still getting used to this day. It’s a good cover garment alternative to photojournalist’s vests or jackets. The Tropic is light, comfortable and roomy. It’s an essential piece of concealment wear.
~ Rich Grassi, Harris Publications
Currently I have 2 double action and 1 tropic vest. I wear a 3xl size yet do not find the vest too loose or too tight. The cut and sizing with the excellent material and the craftsmanship make the vests an important part of my wardrobe. I am required to carry a handgun for my employment . The vests allow me to discreetly achieve this requirement. Included is the need to carry handcuffs, a baton, a radio and OC, which are also keep discreet. In addition the ease of washing and caring for the vests alone pay for their cost. You have an excellent product that should be part of everyone’s clothing that needs to carry a handgun.

The delivery of my new vest was amazingly speedy. The new Tropical vest has some mesh lining and a vented back that my original vest did not have. Nice additions. Everything else is the same high quality as before. I wish to thank you again for your efficiency, attention to detail and quality product.

Hi, I just wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the vest I received a few days ago. I ordered the Tropic vest and had you tailor Cross Draw Pockets in it for me. You guys really do great work. I wasn't sure about the color I wanted; you sent me a swatch of the Steel Gray and I said that's the color I wanted but it wasn't until the finished product came that I realized how great the Steel Gray was. Boy that is a fantastic color, it blends with everything you wear. It's a medium gray and looks great.I can't thank you enough for all the help you were.

...I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I am with your Double Action Vest model. It is the fifth vest (some were gifts) and at least the seventh or eighth C.C.C. product I have ordered over the past several years...I am very fussy and I cannot imagine any way to improve the Double Action Vest...I used to wonder why I never received mailings from your competitors. Then it dawned on me, I seriously doubt that you have any competitors! A.J.L.
