Default Concealment for speed loaders?

Hi folks. I have a SP 101 DAO that I love to carry. Very smooth action and easy to carry and conceal. My problem is concealing reloads. I have two speed loaders but they prove challenging to conceal. I'm looking for suggestions. How do you carry your reloads?

Default Speed Strips...

Here is one option I use when a revolver is the choice for carry and concealment the issue...speed strips.

The strips are flat and easier to conceal than round speed loaders. It does however require practice.

Here is a write up:

Yep, speed loaders are bulky. Try the speed strips, they're not as easy to use so they require practice like Shooter13 said. You can find them for a few dollars apiece if you look around

A western shirt (or any kind of shirt) that has two pockets with snap closure?

I use speed strips for my LCR and my Charter bulldog 44. I carry two strips containing 12 rounds and they hide easily in my front pockets. I never did carry my speed loaders.
