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 you can store it in your 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.

    Great holster for hiking

    Posted by Christopher Yearick on Oct 12th 2021

    I got an all black holster for my 10mm Glock 20 and I like how it sits on my lower chest area and how it feels so natural. I actually used the long strap around my lower torso to hold everything really in place as I do jog at times while hiking and it keeps everything secure. You need something like this in this country for when the Bears are out.

    Awesome! It's a tight fit, but that's good. The leather just needs a little stretching, like breaking in a baseball mitt. Fantastic holster!

    Great chest holster

    Posted by Steven on Aug 31st 2021

    We have purchased 2 chest holsters for me and the wife's Glock 20's. Great investment in our protection during backcountry adventures in Grizzly country. They are comfortable to wear on long hikes and fit well while wearing our day packs. My buddy also purchased one on our recommendation.Thanks for the quality craftsmanship!

    Fast and Comfy

    Posted by Dave on Aug 19th 2021

    Release is fast and easy to do one handed. Multiple areas of adjustment, I have a smaller 5’9” athletic frame, 40” chest and it fit well. Had at least a couple feet of extra nylon strap, snipped and burned to size. Easy. High quality leather. Look forward to using on long hikes.

    Chest holstet

    Posted by Lee Broadhead on Aug 7th 2021

    First time sliding my XDM 10mm into the holster I was afraid it was slightly too big as I expected it to be tight to begin with and require break in. I snapped it in and to my surprise the gun did not move. The fit was perfect right from the package! The precision was impressive. Workmanship- quality all the way.
