  • Detail
    Our Miami Classic™ is quite possibly the most imitated shoulder holster system in the world. A direct descendant of the original shoulder system first introduced by Galco in 1970 (then the Famous Jackass Leather Company), the Miami Classic has since become the favorite of professionals worldwide.

    A key component of this shoulder system is its spider harness. All four points of the spider harness pivot independently and are connected by our unique clover shaped Flexalon™ swivel back plate, which is a Galco trademark. This results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for all sizes and shapes.

    This system is constructed of premium saddle leather and includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of system screws. The Miami Classic is fully modular. Optional accessories and components may be purchased separately.

    Made for semiautomatic pistols and some revolvers, the Miami Classic is available in right or left hand draw in tan or black finish.

    NOTE: Holster system pictured with magazine carrier for semi-auto. Revolver systems include double drop pouch for loose cartridges.

MIAMI RIG
Over the last 6 years I've ordered & got 2 Miami rigs, one for a Kimber 45 (heavy gun), years later one for a Glock 9 MM, I absolutely love both of them. Texture, fit, ease of use, quality of the leather, color is the same through out (no lighter & darker areas), everything is perfect for me. I forget I am wearing it. The weight dispersion is equal. I am ordering another Miami rig for my next gun shortly,,,,, again I love them.

Love my Miami classic
Carrying a full size pistol is a literal pain. With this carry system I can carry the firearm I am most comfortable with daily and not have to sacrifice for a smaller gun I am not as competent with. I love it, great quality! I will buy another soon!

Finally the perfect holster.
I want to say that I have never dealt with a more patriotic company ….. the Miami vice style holster is a great quality leather and the workmanship is perfection …. I received this holster quickly and it looks and feels like it was made just for me. It is easy to conceal and the weight distribution makes it feel so comfortable. I was very impressed with a hand written note and a copy of the United States Constitution as a gift....I will definitely be a repeat customer and tell everyone about your company...thank you all so very much.

shoulder holster
bought miami shoulder rig and love it. It has already been coast to coast and back on a motorcycle and is very comfortable to the point I keep checking to make sure I did not forget to put it on. only suggestion would be to include more screws for adjustment of straps and also offer a combo that would include belt hook ups.
Also received in plenty of time for the ride. only about 1600+ riders.what a hoot and nobody could tell I was carrying.

Miami classic holster
First off shipping was fast I have ordered the holster on Thursday night FedEx tracker said it would arrive the next Monday to my surprise it came Saturday morning. I un packed it and checked it out it looks great the holster for the gun and mags are stiff not floopy leather is beautifully done stitching is great and the straps as soy and flexible. It is berry easy to put together and fit to your body my glock 30s after adjusting the tension screw fits great did not have to do the stretching with the bag . All and all this holster is a very well made holster and I would recommend it to any one. This holster is going to be my go to holster. Thank you galco for a great holster.

QUALITY PRODUCT
I have always wanted a shoulder holster and after months of research and reading customer reviews I chose GALCO - I was not disappointed. After several adjustments, my Ruger SR1911 Officer fits comfortably...

I used a miami classic for many years as a police detective. It was a great holster that was very comfortable while carrying my Glock 23. Now retired I just purchased another for my S & W Model 69 that I will wear as a backup while bear hunting with a bow.

Great holster
After receiving the holster it took a few minutes to figure out the assembly. Once that was done and it was fit to my body everything was great. It is very comfortable to wear and supports my gun just like it was made for it. (and it was) I do believe that this was money well spent and will enjoy the holster for many years

I will NEVER purchase anything but Galco ever again. This holster is so far beyond comfortable that it is almost like it's not even there. Very discreet, easily adjustable, and I don't believe there is any other product out there that will support the Glock 41 the way this holster does. Top Spot, Galco!

Miami Classic "IS" a classic
I carry a S&W Model 19 Combat in this rig. WOW! This rig is soooooo comfortable i carry all day. That pad that all the straps are attached to makes sure that all is the way it is supposed to be. Can't say enough without gushing. Won't go there. Buy it! You will forget the price! Quality costs more for a reason.

A Most Comfortable Shoulder Rig
I initially bought the black Miami Classic shoulder holster as my wife and travel a good bit and frankly, OWB gets uncomfortable the older I get and the longer the trip. I was amazed at the quality and comfort of the system. I purchased it with the intention of carrying my P226 Legion. I was so impressed with the quality of the whole system, within a week of getting the black, I ordered the Miami Classic in tan-which was delivered even faster than anticipated. Look, you can buy other shoulder holster systems, but I dare to to look at the reviews and find those that have been carried for 20+ years. The Miami Classic is that system. There are other systems out there less expensive, but I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. In the Miami Classic, you get superb quality holster system and you get the backing of a company that’s been around for decades. But with confidence—you will not be disappointed!

MIAMI RIG perfect
I own 2 already for different calibers, now I need another one for a new gun. I've been using these on & off for years in all weather, they're standing up like I can't believe. I don't even know that I am wearing them, the weight is evenly distributed, no binding or rubbing, I just needed one size larger shirt & stretch my arms up high, pull out a little on the shirt on the belly button area so the shirt is excess above the belt all the way around (right to left & in the front). This works perfect for no coat or jacket & even with some thinner shirts, but when reaching up or bending over (without a coat on) think first that you're carrying, it might show the an impression of the weapon. I love mine, the only one I use, even when rifle hunting & I have like 15 holsters from IWB, cross draw & open carry on belt. THANKS GALCO

This is one of the finest pieces of leather I own. Everything about it...fit, finish, stitching, color and ease of acclamation...very high quality. Very comfortable and supple. Well worth the wait and expense.
Something that will be passed down to my grandsons one day.

Fits my pistol perfectly
I'm still breaking it in and am not used to wearing it out in public. Plus it's been hot here and I don't want to wear it unconcealed (without a shirt or jacket over it). But it's more comfortable than I would have imagined and have no doubt that this fall and winter I'll wear it often. I just love it and can't imagine not having a holster of this quality.

Fits like a glove
I purchased the Miami Classic system for use with a Glock 19 Gen 3. I appreciate how the holster system is balanced and “floats” perfectly on my torso. I don’t experience any pressure points and the holster keeps the weapon and mags exactly in place. I can use this set-up all day and have zero shoulder or back pain. I actually forget I have it on after a while. The retention for the weapon and mags is very customizable. I have the retention screws adjusted for a very smooth/fast draw for both the firearm and mags. The MC leather is supple and finely finished with a rich saddle color which is appealing to the eye. The leather also has a pleasant “leather” aroma after over a year of use.

I had to make two rounds of adjustments to get the fit just right for my build. I purchased, separately, the mag pouch from the MCII system. I preferred this horizontal, open mag pouch over the closed vertical pouch included in the MC system.

I chose the MC holster system because I found belt holsters to be generally uncomfortable and difficult to conceal for my intended use.

A Percected Holster
I got this Shoulder Holster System on Christmas, this product better distributes the weight over my body than any other Holster I have had. Those pesky Belt Holsters always tear down on my side. I plan to always take this hiking along with my rifle.

I own two of GALCO’s shoulder systems, for two different handguns, most recently their Miami Classic.

They are wonderfully designed, professionally finished, absolutely comfortable to wear.

A word — or two — of advice: Read and follow the enclosed, detailed, illustrated, printed directions. Be patient with getting the fit right. It might be a perfect fit the first try — but then, it might take some extended experimentation over several days.

I carry a 3” S&W 629. The fit is so close, the weight distribution is so balanced, that I don’t feel that i’m carrying.

Again, be patient with the try-fit process. The end result is well worth the effort.

The folks in Customer Service know their products.

Best shoulder holster available
This is by far the most well thought out,highest quality easily adjustable product of its type I have ever used. Galco holsters are the best I have used and cannot say one negative about any I have experience with.
