    Galco’s original VHS™ (Vertical Holster System) was field-proven across the globe from Afghanistan to America. Thousands were used by US military personnel fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Countless others are in use by US and international law enforcement, being particularly popular among police helicopter pilots. The VHS also provides an alternative for those who want the concealment of Galco’s Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style.

    Now, after over a decade of experience with the VHS, Galco has improved it further. The VHS 3.0™ brings a reshaping/redesign of the harness straps, replacement of harness screws with a key-hole harness fastener attachment, and the addition of an innovative new tie-down system.

    A key component of the VHS 3.0 shoulder system is its spider harness. All four points of the spider harness can pivot independently and are connected by our clover-shaped, trademarked Flexalon™ swivel back plate. This, along with our patented swivel connectors, results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for virtually all body sizes and shapes.

    The wide harness straps on the VHS 3.0 have been recontoured to enhance both comfort and concealment. The VHS 3.0 also features Galco’s improved key-hole harness fastener system that replaces the earlier screw-and-post system, resulting in greater security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.

    The VHS 3.0 also introduces a new tie-down system that is simple to use, compact and concealable, and fully ambidextrous.

    The VHS 3.0 comes complete with vertical holster, harness, ammo carrier, tie-downs and a set of harness fasteners. Fully modular, optional accessories and components for the VHS 3.0 may be purchased separately.

    Whether you patrol the perilous sands of the Middle East, metropolitan America on the ground or from the air, exercise your Second Amendment right to bear arms, or stalk the hunting fields of the world, the VHS 3.0 will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.

    Made for semiautomatic pistols, the VHS 3.0 is ambidextrous and available in tan or black finish.

Great Quality
Got a 6" Ruger GP100 and it fits perfectly. Concealed carrying it is no problem at all, with a light Jacket it's still very well concealed. Even on long 4 wheeler & snowmachine rides, the comfortability of it over all. Is Amazing!

Great Rig,Great Quality
I had the 2.0 version for a few years but for my size the straps were a bit big and the holster tie down wasn't usefull for me. Glad I ordered the 3.0 ! You have improved the system and now it is perfect to carry my Sig P220. Great concealment and comfort. One hand draw is easy now. Highly recomend this set up.

Very good quality
Have been enjoying this product since I pulled it out of the box. Fits me and my gun very well. Some trial and error was required to tweak the fit, but very happy with the results. Even a light jacket or even an untucked shirt and a full size 1911 disappears.

Great Holster System
This is a beautiful product. The quality is outstanding, and it is also quite comfortable. I don't notice any discomfort due to the weight of my 6" S&W 686. I haven't tried to use it for concealed carry yet, as I am waiting for cooler weather so that a light jacket helps with concealment. Overall, I am very pleased with the holster system, as I have been with all of the Galco products I have used in the past.

Beautiful Craftsmanship
This new version of the VHS holster has several new features that are really nice.

1)The keyhole system in the harness is much faster to assemble and adjust.

2) The tie down strap on the holster allows a low or high position ... pay attention to the pictures as I didn’t and didn’t see the high position at first. I tried both and prefer the high position.

3) The included tie down for he magazine carrier is a must to keep the heavier pistol side from pulling the assembly over to that side.

One con from the two older VHS systems I have is this one required a week of break in using plastic bags over my Sig P226. If you try to skip this you may jam you gun in and not be able to get it out.

With GALCO you get what you pay for. Quality leather and leather work. Solid plastic. Had a few issues of my own. Not tightening the screw for the button on the gun side down enough. But aside from that this system is wonderful. I've used it for open and concealed carry and have a hunt coming up in a week or so and will update this review after. I am not a huge guy 5'11" on a good day and lost quite a bit of weight down to a 30in waist and 165lbs I carry this concealed with a tuck in shirt and print a little on the front and slightly on the rear magazine does not show at all for me. This can be solved with plad or soft cotton as the design and softenness of the shirt break things up a little in winter with a short jacket I suppose I'll have no issues and my leather jacket does not print at all. Magazine retention is amazing crisp clean and smooth, all that I'd be left asking for is replacement or extension for 30rd magazine. I'm a tnpr and as a result carry a lot of stuff. Some space or a way to carry a long fighting knife on my back would be dandy but I'll probably end up rigging something myself.
