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 2.75" 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 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.

Fine leathercraft
My SIG P220 (.45 ACP) nestles in snugly, and the straps are comfortable (although I had a bit of trouble figuring out just the right adjustment). I prefer vertical shoulder holsters (vs. Miami-style) , just for the peace of mind of having the muzzle pointed down. I prefer shoulder holsters since they distribute the weight, rather than having a pound or so pushing on your belt line. Shoulder holsters also solve the problem of how to manage your firearm when using a restroom ( you don't have to set it down). Since I shoot left-handed, finding a shoulder holster that's specifically left-handed ( gun under my right arm) was a challenge, and there are many "ambidextrous" holsters that really aren't -- BUT THIS ONE TRULY IS. The plastic grasp under the retention strap button is also a nice touch -- speed when accessing the firearm is paramount, and the grasp is easy to find and makes un-snapping a piece of cake.
