Leather Chest Holster for Semi Autos

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.

    Holster was delivered in a timely manner and as advertised. Quality craftsmanship and a perfect fit for my Sig Sauer M17. The adjustable harness is more than accommodating for individuals of all sizes. Excellent product and a happy customer.

    The service was fast. I ordered two holsters in the beginning of the month and received them both by the end of the month. Both fit the guns they were made for like a glove. Would definitely recommend to others to purchase products here.

    I came across the holster after hours of searching. there are many cool holsters out there. This one is for me . I received it on time (about the predicted lead time of 3 weeks) and was excited to try it out. Great fit on my glock. No metal scratching. great workmanship. Stitching is solid. Smooth draw that feels very natural, unlike what I saw in videos of other chest holsters. very adjustable, to the point that I could not feel it there. Great product, worth the extra money. you get what you pay for.

    I received a chest mount holster from Paradise Leather & it was everything I had hoped. it carried the weight of my Glock 20 effortlessly, was very secure yet could be easily & quickly drawn with one hand if required. I went mountain biking, hiking & could even repel with it. I actually forgot that i was wearing it at times. I usually have a pack on, phone on left side, gps on right side. the chest mount was a great option.
