    I purchased a belly band to conceal carry at a gun show. No matter how I align the velcro, I'm always getting the plastic hook part of the velcro rubbing against my body. It definitely hurts no matter what i'm doing.

    Ideally I'd like to use it when I'm running in a local park, or running in neighborhood.

    Any suggestions? It's like the band was designed poorly. The hook should be facing away from the person, and the loop should be facing towards the person.

    Wear it backwards? Worth a shot.

    Nah, if I flip it then the gun will be right on me. Are all belly bands like this? or is it just this vender's that I bought from?

    undershirt. i had one that i quit wearing (don't even know where it's at now) and it was the same way, guessing it's common. I had to wear an undershirt to wear it comfortably for any real length of time

    Sew two flaps of soft fabric onto back of the velcro section, at the top and bottom. When you put it on, tuck the flaps around it so that they are in contact with your body instead of the velcro.

    Trimming the hook section down is also an option, but it may change the way the fabric sits and cause it to curl.
