  • DETAIL

    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 4.0™ 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 4.0 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 4.0 have been recontoured to enhance both comfort and concealment. The VHS 4.0 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 4.0 also introduces a new tie-down system that is simple to use, compact and concealable, and fully ambidextrous.

    The VHS 4.0 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 4.0 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 4.0 will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.

    Made for semiautomatic pistols and revolvers, the VHS 4.0 is ambidextrous and available in tan or black finish.

I have owned 3.
As the title says, I have owned 3 of the Miami-style iterations from Galco. My first was a used "Original Jackass" that I found at a pawnshop. I bought my second when Galco operated out of a small strip mall on Van Buren in Phoenix. I have 2 of the "Miami Classics." My current setup is for a Glock 17 under my left arm, and my backup Glock 26 under the right. The versatility of being able to utilize the harness system, and just buy a new holster is fantastic! The quality and finish of the leather is perfect and only gets better over time. I feel fortunate to have been able to get the systems back when they were only $140.00.

Craftsmanship at its finest.
Bought this holster for a Smith and Wesson 629 Classic. I've never worn a more comfortable shoulder rig in my life,it totally changed my opinion on shoulder holsters! The holster itself fit like a glove and I had no break-in period. The harness was super easy to assemble and the ammo pockets fit my speed loaders like a charm. This is made with top grade leather and the stitching is beautiful. I fully expect this holster will hold up for my lifetime and possibly my Sons when it gets handed down to him. What can I say? I highly recommend Galco,they're a first rate company and a leader in the industry for a reason!

Best shoulder rig ever!
I have tried other shoulder rigs before but the Galco VHS is by far the most comfortable and best quality rig of them all! You always have to worry about weight distribution with a shoulder rig. The design on the VHS is so good that it eliminates all of the typical wear problems you would normally experience. I love my new shoulder holster!

You won't go wrong with this one!
This shoulder holster rig is by far the best out there! My Dan Wesson .357 with 4" barrel fits perfectly!! Like virtually all Galco holsters, you don't even know you're wearing one until you take it off.

Galco Wins Again
I have relied on Galco products for years because they are high quality, I prefer them over custom products that cost an arm and a leg and take months to make, and because they are always working to improve their products. This “improved” vertical shoulder holster is an excellent example of these improvements. This is the most comfortable shoulder I have ever owned and I carry a full size 1911. Wide shoulder straps, no adjustment screws, tie-downs included, and no retention straps which never fit my Sig 1911. You cannot go wrong if you are looking for a shoulder holster.

Still The Best
I believe the Vertical Holster System is the best commercially available shoulder rig on the market. The remarkable thing about this holster is how comfortable it is and how secure the gun is. I would unhesitatingly recommend this shoulder rig to anyone who routinely carries a concealed firearm.

Usual Galco Quality
Carefully designed and well made. It took some time to get the rig properly adjusted but the result is a holster is comfortable, stable and secure, even with a large frame revolver. Customer service has been excellent. I have purchased other Galco products and have bee very satisfied.

Vertical Shoulder Holster for SIG
Just followed instructions on assembling holster straps to ensure exact fit. I had another person behind me to check fit before inserting grommets for permanent
length with belt loops. Holster feels comfortable and lays well.
