Leather Chest Holster for Revolvers with Thumb Break

 

 

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 back country adventures.  This holster was developed this holster when other options for carrying a gun and wearing a backpack didn't work. Many of the other well known maker of chest holsters doesn't have a thumb break for quick access, and had poor placement of straps, making it bounce around when you move. This holster fixed both of those problems and because of the synthetic harness it is able to be made at cost effective price.  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 it can stored it in a 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.

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

    Leather chest holster

    Posted by Jim on Jul 12th 2021

    I received the holster last week. It's well made and fits my Smith Model 69 well. The web straps are heavy duty. Heavier than probably necessary, but that's OK. Crazy comfortable to wear. Thanks for a great product.

    Smith and Wesson revolver thumb break N frame 4 inch

    Posted by Michael Woods on Jun 1st 2021

    Seems like great quality leather with nice stitching. Holster is comfortable and fits well. Firearm is firmly held a draws a little stiff after a few days stretching. If I may, I would suggest maybe a few millimeters more looseness with the thumb break design as it is already intended on holding in the firearm with a strap. Also, the strap itself is a bit too wide for a comfortable out of the way draw. If it could be about half as thick but keep the strap area near the upper most part of retention on firearm it would make for a fantastic draw. It would retain the firearm but be out of the way of the thumb when it is in need of grasping the firearm in the proper grip. Also I would like to see a scope mount option as that's what I really wanted.

    Chest holster

    My S&W Governor fits like it was made for this holster, and not the other way around. Easy in, easy out, as it should be! I'll be putting my other two name brand holsters up for sale on eBay. Thank you so much Gordon!!

    Model 29 holster

    Posted by Bradley G on Apr 6th 2021

    These holsters from paradise valley are the real deal. The first thing I noticed out of the box was the quality of the leather, it has to be some of the best I have ever seen. The fitment is snug so it will not fall out but very smooth to draw also. 10/10 would recommend this to anyone lookings for a high quality hand made holster from the USA.
