Leather Chest Holster for Semi Autos

Fits sizes Small to XXXL in the same harness. Need larger than that? Just let us know in "order comments" at check out.


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 holder

    Posted by William on Aug 9th 2020

    The leather chest holster itself is awesome. It fits the pistol perfectly. The harness is not desirable, It is difficult to adjust and when adjusted to what I think it should be it is uncomfortable to wear. The leather gathering piece where the straps come together bunches up and is irritating to wear. I will need to find someone to engineer and make a new strap system that is easy to put on to attach to the awesome holster.
    For $120.00 plus shipping, I am thankful the holster is perfect.

    Quality built item - fits my SA SD-Compact perfectly - and once properly adjusted to my chest, I almost forget I'm carrying while hiking 9 hours with a backpack on. Draw is seamless and easy, though with time re-insertion and snapping secure will be equally quick and easy. Some have commented on the "Plastic" D-rings, which shouldn't be a problem as there's not a great amount of torque or load on them, and unlike metal will resist perspiration-induced corrosion over time. Added benefit is the wide shoulder strap on top, but even without it a medium to light-weight firearm will is not uncomfortable for a few hours at a time. Customer service is great - as my first holster was for a full size, not compact as ordered. Return/Exchange was effortless. Thank you, Gordon!

    Great chest holster, and you can tell it is very well made. Fits great, and adjustment is pretty straightforward. It can take a few minutes at first to get setup exactly where you want it, but once you do that it works awesome. Trigger guard and slide strap are also nice features. Arrived in the exact amount of time they said it would. Great product

    glock 20 chest holster

    Posted by Benjamin on Jul 20th 2020

    the ease of access to draw the weapon quickly and safely, the holster comfortably fits on the body, and the fact that someone took the time to put this together have earned a 5 star from me. I couldn't find a better product for backpacking/ hiking.

    Only improvement: I'm a right handed shooter. It would be a nice feature to include an adjustable strap on my left side that would attach to my belt and the waist band. That would stabilize initial draw of my weapon.
