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.

    Its a nice holster, although the straps are not as nice, they are just nylon bands same as you would see on a backpack. However my Raging Judge Taurus fits inside nicely. Because of the flimsiness of the straps it takes two hands to draw. For the price I expected better support straps. Also they did not ask which judge it was, mine is the 3" and they sent one for the 6" barrel, not a big deal it still fits. Maybe that is my oversight, not telling them. Overall the holster is really nice, well stitched and custom formed, but the straps are really not up to par for this amount of money. I saw another holster that was not custom fitted for the same price with leather straps. I would say that they should upgrade their strapage to be the top holster.

    I am absolutely impressed w this holster. Not usually a reviewer of merchandise but I am making an exception. The fit was perfect / aesthetically it surpassed my expectations, although I bought this holster to beat up by wearing it through thick brush while shed hunting- it looks amazing and wears exceptionally well- hope this helps you make your decision.

    Chest holster Taurus model 44

    Amazing craftsmanship. This holster will definitely stand the test of time. Holds the firearm snugly(no flopping around) but releases incredibly fast. Comfortable while wearing a backpacking pack. Heck the weight actually helps balance the weight of the backpack on my body. Last holster I'll ever need to buy.
