I was looking to see if I could find a small utility belt pouch that would also hold my 9mm Shield, and after a little looking I order this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07513GMQ6/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It arrived today, and my initial impression is very good.

There are tons of pouches like this available online. I chose this one because of its size, approximately 4.6 x 2.0 x 7.1 inches(L x W x T), the price ($7.99),and the "bonus" aluminum carabiner.


The phone in the front pouch is a Samsung Galaxy S7 in an Otter commuter case. The side panels of this pouch are elastic, so a slightly wider and thicker phone would fit. You could go 2" taller too.


There's the Shield with the 7-round mag. I do have to pull the zipper up/out just a little to get it over the bottom edge of the grip. I'll try my son's Glock 43 in the pouch as well, as soon as I can.


I serve on our church's Safety Team, and this pouch should come in handy. Right now, on those Sundays I'm shifting my phone, spare mag, church keys, and radio around my pockets.

That does look nice as a way to conceal your Shield. Something like that would likely work for me at work. Policy is that I can't carry at work. I usually don't because however I carry, in a traditional holster, it will become exposed at some point. A pouch like that would probably hide my XDs pretty well.

I did a little practicing this afternoon "drawing" from the pouch. I'd start the timer with my right arm down at the side of the pouch, then I'd unzip the pouch, draw the Shield, and stop the timer with the "bang" on the snap cap. My initial times were around 2.4 seconds. After a little practice I got it down around 1.75 seconds, with my best time being 1.53 seconds.

Glock 43 fits too.

Here's my son's Glock 43 with the 6-round mag and the pinkie extension. I did have to pull the zipper out just a little to get it over the very edge of the extension.
