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.

    Leather Chest Holster

    Ordered this chest holster for my Glock 19. The holster is well made and a perfect fit, the nylon webbing is great and very comfortable. I highly recommend this product. You can’t go wrong. This is the second holster I have ordered from Paradise Valley, the first being an Avenger holster for my Glock 21 it too is an extremely well-made holster.
    Keep up the good work.

    Semi-Auto Chest Rig

    Posted by Jon Nicholson on Mar 5th 2021

    In a nut shell: It arrived early, looks amazing, fits like a glove (I should say like a Paradise Valley Holster), thumb strap is perfect works like butter, not a hint of movement from firearm in holster, and I can wear straps a little loose (for my comfort) without the rig bouncing around on my chest. Love this Holster!!!!!!!
