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.

    Chest holster for Redhawk.

    Posted by Bob Lombard on Dec 24th 2017

    Well made, of heavy duty, quality leather. The gun is a tight fit now, but that will improve with use. My gun has a 4" barrel, and the holster is made for a 6" barrel - but that matters not. I haven't yet figured out how to adjust the harness the way I want it, but chances are I will. probably.

    Very Good job at meeting my expectation with our communication for getting the holster in time for my elk hunt. The gun fits well and looks great. I have encouraged my hunt partner to check you out.

    Chest holster, cartridge holder, shoulder pad

    As I said in a review on Sunday, the craftsmanship and detail is superb. I did not have to stretch the holster at all for the revolver to fit perfectly and minor strap adjustment for the rig to fit me perfectly. My only complaint was I asked for black stitching and received brown. That's ok though it is a beautiful holster and I'm extremely happy with it.

    Awesome chest holster

    Posted by Chris Bouley on Aug 21st 2017

    I am loving the leather chest holster that i had made for my 44 mag Taurus raging bull with the 8" barrel. Once I stretched the leather the gun great. Slide in and out with ease. Holster is comfortable to wear. The craftsmanship of the holster is top notch. I looked along time to find a holster for this gun. Love it. Thank you for getting it done.

    Chest holster

    Posted by Jason on Jul 25th 2017

    This is the second holster I have purchased. Both have been great. High quality and a great price. I have one of the more popular chest holster made in Alaska. I by far like this design and quality over the competition. I love the chest holster while fishing and riding my dirt bike or just going for a hike in the woods. It can be placed at several different angles and is out of the way until you need it. Then it is easy access. I will continue to buy them for friends and family as gifts. This holster is really flat. Under a jacket you don't know it is there.
