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.

    Chest holster for Glock 10mm

    Posted by David on Nov 10th 2019

    This is my second holster from Paradise Valley Leather. The quality and fit of their holsters is top notch. These chest holsters are the best value out there for this style of holster and they fit well, have plenty of adjustment and hold your pistol securely, even while hiking, fishing, etc.. I'm completely happy with both holsters and based on my communication with this company during the order process, I have no doubt they would take care of any concerns I had, if I wasn't happy. I would definitely order more holsters from them!

    Excellent service, after adjusting harness to fit me, I hardly noticed that I was wearing it. Very quick to remove and put back on when removing clothing layers during the hunt. Excellent holster, hunting partners now want one.
