rub together.

The Original Jackass Rig™ was reintroduced for Galco International’s 30th Anniversary. Galco’s predecessor, "The Famous Jackass Leather Company," first introduced this shoulder system in 1970. It features a horizontal holster that can be adjusted to a more diagonal carry position than our Miami Classic or MCII, attaching to the harness with our swivel connectors.

The ammo carrier has a streamlined yet secure design, while the Premium Center Cut Steerhide™ harness provides unparalleled concealment opportunities, greater adjustment and comfort. All four points of the center cut steerhide harness can pivot independently and are connected by our unique clover-shaped Flexalon™ swivel back plate, which is a Galco trademark.

The Jackass Rig includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of harness fasteners. The Jackass Rig is fully modular. Optional accessories and components may be purchased separately, including commonly-used items like tie-downs.

Made for semiautomatic pistols, the two-tone Jackass Rig is available in right and left hand draw in black holster/ammo carrier finish and contrasting tan harness.

Harness fits chests to 56".

The best of them all
After buying and trying several Galco shoulder holsters out of curiosity, such as the Miami Classic and the Vertical System, I can easily say this one is the best in terms of comfort and concealment for all types of situations. I am pretty skinny, I carry a full size gun and I sit a lot so you might think it would be either uncomfortable or badly hidden but this holster makes no compromise.
This is the closest thing we'll ever get from Sonny Crockett's holster, unless a havanna brown/tan plain colored Jackass Rig ever comes out. And I'll be there for it.

Perfect for a full size semi-auto
I purchased the Galco Jackass shoulder rig to carry my Glock 20. I am 6 ft tall and 190 lb, and when carrying the full-size Glock 20 on my body size I need the upward muzzle cant of the Jackass rig to prevent printing in the front or back. I chose the double mag carrier to balance the weight of the gun on the other side, and I find the shoulder harness to be well-balanced and very comfortable. I plan to get another shoulder rig for my Glock 43x. However, the smaller 43x will conceal completely under my arm in a horizontal position, so I will get a regular horizontal shoulder rig for that gun because the horizontal draw stroke is more natural for me than the downward draw stroke required with the Jackass Rig. The canted carry position of the Jackass shoulder rig allows me to completely conceal my Glock 20, and I am very satisfied with this holster.

A new version of a tried and true design!
I bought the lightweight version of this rig for a "J" frame Smith back in 1976, and let it go, when I sold the gun to a good friend. (he still uses it) When I bought this one I knew I was getting the best available! ('cause guys believe me, over the years I've tried pretty much everything out there) This is without doubt the most comfortable rig I have ever tried, and I'm currently carrying a custom 1911 (not the lightest choice I could have made) but a weapon I feel most confident with.
