Galco's High Ready™ chest holster system is the latest in an expanding line of torso-worn hunting and outdoor holsters.

The High Ready is ideal for comfortably carrying a large-frame handgun when hunting, fishing, camping or hiking in bear country. Positioning on the chest keeps the handgun clear of gear carried near the waistline or on the back and allows rifle carry on either shoulder. It also helps keep the handgun dry when wading, and is a great choice for riding, whether on an ATV or horseback.

The High Ready’s outstanding comfort level comes from three major design features:

The first is its innovative backing plate, composed of a ballistic nylon front over a closed cell foam body. The back portion of the plate that rides against the wearer’s chest is lined with Galco’s Comfort Cloth™, an Adaptive Performance Mesh™ that provides padding and moisture wicking.

Secondly, the unique harness construction that allows the holster to pivot at three independent attachment points, maximizing freedom of movement and minimizing restriction. Three quickly-operated, highly secure metal side-release buckles attach the holster component to the harness straps at the pivot points.

Lastly, 2” wide tubular webbing harness straps distribute the weight of a heavy handgun for maximum comfort. One strap goes over either shoulder, while the second wraps around the torso for highly effective weight distribution.

The rigid, open-top Kydex holster pocket offers full slide coverage, provides fast draw and easy holstering, and facilitates a full firing grip. The holster pocket on semiauto versions accommodates most red dot sights.

I spend a lot of time in the back country, on 4x4 or ranger or hiking. the holster is constructed of quality materials, well made and designed. it provides excellent accessibility to my pistol whether I am on foot or driving, weight with the firearm is equally distributed. very pleased with the purchase.

A good holster
Fantastic fit, both on the pistol and on me. I’m impressed by the way I’m able to adjust the holster to ride at chest level. I have ready access to my pistol and I am happy with the comfort of the fit. It is a very good holster.

Getting use to it
I saw something similar to this in an old movie and for the life of me I can not think of it right. so I thought I would give it a try. Yes it was on Hill Street Blue the Swat commander had something like a tank commander holster. So I wanted to try it. 1st it is comfortable to wear. One has to get use to the weapon being right in front of you. It takes thing off your hip, only thing your not going to CC. Hunters will like it to carry and backup that is not in the way. It is very secure in the holster so you don't have to worry about it coming out while running
