Chest Rigs

Anybody carry in a chest rig when hiking, working around the ranch or while driving?

Grown real partial to this form of carry over the past several years. Most comfortable and quickly accessible carry method I have found.

2A Holsters and Alaris Tactical make fine chest holster rigs.

    I've been thinking about a Guide's Choice Leather Chest Holster for my .454.

    I've got a Belgium Police Chest rig. (Leather.) Pretty nice.


    Probably not in the same league as what you guys are talking about though.

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    For those who prefer leather, Simply Rugged makes a nice 'Chesty Puller' rig. Have had one for a long time and it is excellent quality.

    You gotta buy one of his pancake holsters to rig on it though. I use the rig with a smooth finish Sourdough Pancake holster for a S&W Model 329 Night Guard, 2.5" .44 mag. One of my carry-while-hunting rigs.

    I have grown to prefer the Alaris Kodiak chest rig though.

    I like the chest holster. I have a bit of a problem however. I need a right hand holster that does not have a left hand shoulder strap. My left collar bone was broken and now has a calcium ball that does not like anything touching it. My right shoulder is much better but still has some damage issues that would require a wide padded strap.

    I would guess I would have to have one custom built. I am a leather guy. Any recommendations ?

    Being familiar with the Simply Rugged Chesty puller, I was thankful to see that Alaris link. Thank you!

    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
