  • 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 steerhide and includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of harness fasteners. 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.

    "The World's Most-Copied Shoulder Holster"

    Harness fits chests to 52".

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

The required addition.
I have been doing Executive Protection work for many years in every climate. A holster is a required necessity just like shoes, comfort. As a driver, the seat belt has dug into my right hip/waist area especially if I wore any type of hip/belt holster. So it was suggested to switch over to the Miami classic holster since 3 other guys in my office started to wear them. Since I wear a suit, this holster relieves me of the chance of not putting holes in my suit or whatever clothing I will be wearing for mission and I still maintain a low profile silhouette of the pistol. The adjustment will take some time, especially if you are a big guy but the straps will settle and conform to your shape nicely. I purchased extra screws so the holster strap doesn't flap. The only issue is, there will be bits of leather coming from the strap onto your clothing but will eventually fade away.

Miami classic shoulder holster
I had an excellent buying experience. I needed a left handed shoulder holster which was not in stock. I was promised 2 week delivery and it arrived early. I was ready for the early delivery because the tracking info was kept up to date. The holster system is top quality leather and the youtube video with "tips" for setting it up made it easy to start using it.

Miami Classic, MC446 Fits like a glove
Much more comfortable than on the waist. Leather quality and hardware fit is exceptional. The video showing how to configure and wear allowed me to get the fit correct the first time. The only thing I would change, and I will order, I would like 4 extra studs to control the excess leather from the straps that I do not want to cut off. I may need the extra strap length for future clothing or weight gains. From other reviews, I expect this holster to last 20 or so years. If I need a new unit at age 85 I will probably buy one...

My wife and I walk in the morning and I was getting tired of having to either cinch my belt to the point of pain or constantly pulling my pants up. I can now carry a larger handgun with extra magazines very comfortably. The old adage that a handgun is not supposed to be comfortable but it is comforting is not completely true. I can carry for hours in comfort. The Miami Classic is an extremely well designed rig. I now have one for my Sig 239 and one for my 1911

Miami vice classic shoulder holster
I bought this rig back in 80s for my duty holster, and have never looked back, the quality, craftsmanship is same today as it was then. It’s the only rig I have and continue to use to date. This is my second one as the first one lasted me this long as was due for another. When I need a rig I ALWAYS go Galco !! Nothing even comes close. If this second one last as long as first one has, I’ll retire with this one. You want the best. , buy Galico ! There quality and craftsmanship are unsurpassed. There staff are on top of there game, and a pleasure to deal with.

Fine materials, great design.
And thank you for the assembly and fitting video. One suggestion: with revolvers if you offered a choice between a cartridge case and a speed loader case during initial purchase, it could generate even more satisfied customers. Tip for new owners: I wore mine constantly for 3 days, with weapon, while making fine adjustments. That really made a big difference in the final fit. This design allows for adjustments to be very subtle. I carry a short Speed Six and also found that using a 3/4" Velcro strap as an ammunition side tie down works well.

"Response From Galco: Thank you for taking the time to review your purchase, James! With a few exceptions, shoulder holster components are available ala cart, so you can build it your way! Watch for some new things on the horizon with revolvers and the MCII."

Great Quality
The Miami Classic Shoulder System (MC212) has some of the finest leather making quality I've seen. I carry mostly big 1911 frame .45's that weigh in between 36 and 42 oz. I only weigh 160 lbs., so using an OWB hip holster causes the firearm to off set my bodies center of balance. With the MC212 system the load is supported by your shoulders and upper body. The only drawback is now the firearm weight tends to offset the center of the straps. This was remedied by anchoring the magazines with the belt tiedown straps. Works great.

MIAMI CLASSIC SHOULDER SYSTEM
I can no longer use because of my age, IWB/OWB holsters' daily carrying my Colt Government, Semi-automatic, 1911, 45 ACP, 5" Barrel, Steel Frame and two clips.
Issued this style of gun in the U.S.N. Vietnam era and want no other than my 1911.
Emailed GALCO with questions about the Miami Classic and use after both of my shoulders have been replaced. With that information, I made the decision to purchase the Miami Classic system. Without a doubt, and with GALCO's input, this is the BEST I've felt with my 1911 ever. Highly recommend this system for quality, great fit, and Made in the U.S.A. Bravo Zulu GALCO!

Pretty awesome rig, my ria 10mm ultra fs is about the biggest pistol that will work in a rig like this for concealment. It keeps breaking in a little more each day and it is very comfortable. With the holster, 3 mags, and 27 rounds of ammo this rig weighs exactly 4.5lbs on my trigger pull scale. For me this is the ultimate hunting, defense, and duty go anywhere rig. Thanks guys!

miami classic shoulder holster
the quality speaks for the high expectations that Galco has for their product line. I encourage anyone who purchases this shoulder system to read and understand the instructions prior to fitting the holster . Be patient this takes time and effort to get it right , even so I had to put it up for a while. I found a limitation ; does not work so good if you wear suspenders , I'm referring to the heavy duty work type . But not many guys will need to be concerned as suspenders of that type are not so much in use.
I appreciate the copy of the The Constitution of the United States that accompanied my order. Please keep sending it in shipments. God given liberty that must be cherished .

At almost 82 I found my Galco IWB rig was pulling my pants off (below my hips -age related problem). I don't like suspenders so the Miami Shoulder System looked good. Kidding aside it was easy to set up, is comfortable to wear and I recommend DRAW Ease. Should have done this years ago.

Best Shoulder Holster Made
I have carried these holsters and various weapons in them for 20 plus years. Everything from a 1911, to a Sig P226 to various Glocks. For day to day carry you can't beat them. Brown is nice looking but black hides better under a jacket or vest. They wear great and get better with age.

This holster is an excellent product. It is easy to adjust and comes with a certificate of genuine steer hide. It has a small break-in period. I use it for my 1911 range officer operator. Because it has a rail you will have to remove the tension screw but it still fits great.

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.

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.

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.

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.
