Leather Chest Holster for Revolvers with Thumb Break



The holster you're looking at is our Leather Chest Holster. It is made with very thick and sturdy leather and it is made for years of use. It is a true "Woods Carry" holster that is best used when you don't want a gun on your hip, but you want quick access to it. Best uses include hunting, backpacking, fishing with waders on, and other back country adventures.  This holster was developed this holster when other options for carrying a gun and wearing a backpack didn't work. Many of the other well known maker of chest holsters doesn't have a thumb break for quick access, and had poor placement of straps, making it bounce around when you move. This holster fixed both of those problems and because of the synthetic harness it is able to be made at cost effective price.  Speaking of the nylon harness, it actually functions better than the leather harness. We've made and used the leather harnesses, but prefer the regular nylon webbing ones. Why? you ask. Because it's easier to adjust around layers of clothing, and it's more comfortable under a backpack strap. It also folds up into a small space so it can stored it in a backpack or glovebox. Leather harnesses are too big and bulky for this, but the nylon is perfect. This holster is molded to your gun, so it will require some breaking in. It is designed to be very loose in the holster once broken in, so it draws smoothly when the thumb break comes off, but is very secure with it on.

Fits sizes Small to XXXL in the same harness. Need larger than that? Just let us know in "order comments" at check out.

    Beautiful craftsmanship

    I was so impressed with this holster. I ordered for my husband’s Christmas present. My husband has a S&W model 69 combat magnum. Gordon made the necessary accommodations for this model. We chose the dark leather with dark brown stitching. It is absolutely beautiful.

    Review chest holster

    Wow, what can I say. This holster is top notch, high quality. Don't hesitate on this purchase. Fits like glove, absolutely perfect. Leather is thick, smells great,, cut perfect, and stiching looks smooth. The straps are heavy duty. No need to worry about straps being thin or weak, I feel like I could tow a truck with these straps.(don't do that,lol) Easy to take on and off, easy to break in. The thumb break is nice and stiff, works every time. After the break in time, my draw is fast and smooth. Very satisfied customer here! Also I'm a big guy and their was plenty of room to adjust and fit me perfectly. I could darn near adjust it any where on the front of my torso.
