Galco’s Chest Holsters

Ideal for both handgun hunting and protection while fishing, camping or hiking in bear country, Galco’s chest holsters position the handgun on the torso, keeping the handgun clear of gear carried near the waistline. This also helps keep the handgun dry when wading, and is a great choice for riding, whether on an ATV or horseback.

Carrying a large-frame revolver or auto in the torso position, the Great Alaskan™ is ideal for protection when hunting, fishing, camping or hiking in bear country. Constructed of premium steerhide, the holster component is fully lined with smooth leather. The harness pivots at the holster attachment points for comfort, while its 2” width at the shoulder distributes weight extremely effectively.

Designed to keep a large hunting handgun both comfortable and accessible, Galco’s Kodiak™ and Kodiak Hunter™ Chest Holsters carry the gun diagonally across the torso. Using the same principles as modern backpacks, a padded shoulder strap is used in conjunction with a torso strap that allows for instant adjustments throughout a day spent afield. As the torso strap is tightened, weight is shifted off the shoulder strap, allowing for a full day of comfortable field carry.

The Kodiak carries unscoped revolvers, while the Kodiak Hunter is designed for scoped revolvers and single-shot pistols. The Kodiak Hunter’s holster component is designed for an abbreviated draw stroke through its open top, for much faster target acquisition than a typical scabbard-style holster.

All three chest holsters’ positioning at the front of the body offers a fast and simple draw. An outdoorsman’s holster also needs to retain the handgun in the rough-and-tumble hunting and hiking fields, so Galco’s chest holsters all offer secure retention with a simple safety strap featuring a glove-friendly polymer finger tab. Holster, harness and straps all come ready for easy end-user adjustment.
