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 backcountry adventures. I developed this holster when i didn't like the other options for carrying a gun and wearing a backpack. The other well known maker of chest holsters doesn't have a thumb break for quick access, and i also didn't like how close together the straps attached to the holster, making it bounce around when i moved. This holster fixed both of those problems and, because of the nylon webbing, we where able to make this holster for much less money. 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 i can store it in my 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.

    Fit my smith&wesson M&P perfect. Broke in easily. Took about a month to get it but worth the wait. Ordered another for my Super Redhawk.

    Exactly what I was looking for, practical, accessible, comfortable, and very high quality. Eliminates a lot of carry issues when wearing a backpack.

    I have holsters from many of the best,GS,DIAMOND D,JMCUSTOMKYDEX,SAFARILAND But when it comes to a leather chest rig this is by far my favorite hands down!Awesome fit and finish and highly adjustable so I can still wear a bino harness by adjusting to have my weapon towards my left side a little farther since I am a lefty.My favorite by far JOHN CATES

    1911 w/ rail chest holst

    Posted by Brett B on Apr 7th 2018

    Bought this rig because I was looking for a set up while I’m backpacking. I chose this over others because it was the only one I could with the thumb break for the retention strap. I am extremely happy with my holster. I also purchased the magazine pouch to go with it unfortunately I’m am shorter so it did not sit properly with my backpack on. I had to unstitch the straps to remove the pouch. Short people problems.
