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.

    Posted by Jim on Mar 18th 2021

    I bought this holster so I could comfortably carry my revolver while wearing a backpack. The comfort and quality are outstanding. Compared to other chest rigs on the market the price is quite reasonable. I would recommend this holster to anyone looking for a comfortable and quick access way to carry your handgun.

    This holster far exceeds what I expected. The materials and craftsmanship are the very best I’ve seen. The fit is perfect. This holster also lays flat against the chest and does not flop around when you walk. I’m extremely satisfied and would recommend Paradise Valley products everyone.

    Very nice looking the workmanship and quality of materials are great its fits very tight which is good. I am in the process of breaking it in which is expected just watch their break in video. Received it sooner than expected and will be ordering a couple more for different models of pistols in the future. Thanks Paradise Valley for a great product

    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.
