  • Detail

    Galco Gunleather is excited to introduce the Great Alaskan™ shoulder holster system, the latest member of an expanding line of chest-type hunting and outdoor holsters. Carrying a large-frame revolver or auto in an easily-accessible crossdraw 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. In a departure from common construction methods, the harness is also made of extremely durable premium steerhide. The harness pivots at the holster attachment points for comfort, while its 2” width at the shoulder distributes weight extremely effectively. A Fastex®-type buckle facilitates quick donning and removal of the holster system. The harness will also accept an optional carrier for spare cartridges or a magazine, sold separately.

    Fits chests to 54".

Like a Glove
To use that old clich'e...It fits like a glove. I carry a 1911 and and in the holster it begins to feel part of you, very comfortable. Excellent buy.

Fabulous ...
My husband thinks I am the very best wife in the world ... he loves it. I saw the holster briefly as he bragged about how happy he was to get it for a late Christmas present (my fault, not yours) and wore it all Sunday afternoon sitting on the couch watching football ... goofball. He was very pleased with the fit for his weapon and says it might be time to take another trip to Alaska. I agree. He claims the holster will be in his possession for the rest of his life, so that's a good thing. Thanks for making me look great :)

This holster fits my Dan Wesson Silverback 10mm perfect! Great fit, finish, and quality. I own several Galco products and this along with the Dual Position Phoenix are THE best holsters I own. Well done Galco.
