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.

    Leather Chest Holster

    Posted by Robert F on May 1st 2019

    I decided to get one of these leather chest holsters for my Ruger GP 100 based on some reviews and a YouTube video. Man! Am I ever glad I did! The price was very reasonable for a handmade custom holster.
    It took a while for it to arrive, but once it did and I unboxed it I knew right then it was well worth the wait! Super quality construction and materials! This holster is beautiful! It fits my GP100 like a glove! Not much break in was needed. Once I adjusted it I wore it for a day. In no time I almost forgot I was carrying a 40oz revolver. This holster is so comfortable! The draw is very smooth and effortless. I plan on using it to carry my GP100 when I go hunting in the Fall.
    I highly recommend this holster! It is a work of art!

    Excellent quality and design. Holster lays flat against chest with room to wrap thumb around grip. Very comfortable and easily adjustable. Wish this company much success.
