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.

    First off turn around time on my order was outstanding. Ordered the holster on 1/30 and received it on 2/8. The fit and finish is first rate. Definitely a quality product. It's also extremely comfortable to wear. I don't think you'll find a better setup for use when hiking or hunting.

    This is by far the best leather Chest holster you can buy. Fits my Taurus polymer judge like a glove. Quality is over-the-top great. I can’t wait to get this thing out in the field.

    Thumb break chest holster and shoulder strap

    Posted by Mike on Dec 30th 2019

    I purchase the thumb break chest holster for my Taurus Raging Judge Magnum, model 513 , 3" barrel, and custom made for the gun.
    Holsters are still very difficult to find for this model. I decided to have one made for it and came across Paradise Valley Leather online.

    Excellent fit and finish( dark brown leather). Turn-around time was about 2 weeks.
    This will be great for packing my Taurus RJM when hunting in Montana bear country.
    I recommend this company to anyone wanting a good, custom fit holster.

    Leather chest holster

    Posted by Gregg Gruse on Dec 5th 2019

    I was looking for a way to comfortably carry my S&W 686 . The revolver has a 3” full under lug barrel and an non fluted cylinder. I got a belt holster and wasn’t happy. YouTube led me to Paradise Valley and my first chest holster. What matters to me is fit, finish, durability and cost and this holster checked all of the boxes. I could not be happier with this purchase. I highly recommend the Paradise Valley Chest Holster. Buy with confidence, you will not be disappointed.
