  • Detail
    Galco combined features from our Miami Classic™ with a traditional vertical shoulder holster to create a system that’s perfect for the 21st century’s first responders and military personnel.

    Proven in Iraq and Afghanistan, the VHS™ has been field tested over military uniforms and general hunting clothing with great success, and thousands are currently in use by American armed services personnel fighting the Global War on Terrorism.

    Although we did not set out to create another concealment rig, we discovered that it’s hard to break away from our roots. The VHS provides a long-awaited alternative for those who want the concealment of our Miami Classic but prefer the classic vertical carry style.

    A key component of this shoulder system is its spider harness. All four points of the spider harness can pivot independently and are connected by our clover shape, 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 Vertical Shoulder Holster System consists of holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of system screws. Fully modular, optional accessories and components may be purchased separately.

    Whether you patrol the perilous sands of the Middle East, walk the mean streets of metropolitan America, or stalk the hunting fields of the world, the VHS will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.

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

Galco brand loyalty attained!
This was my second Galco Miami Special vertical shoulder holster system. The firearm specific designs fit my S&W chief special 38 revolver and Sig Sauer Compact P320 9mm semiautomatic as custom holsters should. They are strongly constructed, attractive and wear comfortably. Your customer service department was very helpful in explaining the process of fitting it to my guns, magazines and speed clips. The Galco videos about proper body fit, drawing and holstering with the systems were clear and instructive. Brand loyalty for Galco has been established with me.

Excellent
Very high quality, after assembling the holster is one unit and the adjustments never change unless that's your desire. I highly recommend this product.

VHS Shoulder System Holster
Great quality. Have had many Galco holsters, shoulder and belt, and all have been high quality. The holsters fit the weapon designed for, holding the weapon securely but allowing quick and easy drawing of the weapon. My holsters have stood up to daily rugged use for years and they still provide excellent service. I highly recommend Galco holsters and products. Thank you.

The best in town
As a returning customer, there is no question as to the quality of the GALCO products each and every time. The workmanship, finish, fit etc. are all superior. I had previously tried a few other brands and was disappointed relegating these "others" to out of service status. GALCO's website is very easy to navigate which contributes to the overall experience.

Just awesome!
Perfect. The most comfortable way to wear a full sized pistol without showing what you got. Easy to assenble, pretty much no breakin needed. This is my 4th Galco holster, you guys just keep doing it this way. Don't change a thing!

VHS
After much searching and reading MANY reviews I decided to go with the Galco VHS system in black. I was also looking for a leather company that had been in a successful business for many years with a large customer base. The holster came on time and I was immediately impressed with the looks and quality. Like the reviews said it was a little bit of a pain putting together and adjusting but damn well worth it. Have only had it for a month but I am definitely a satisfied customer. Some background on me: shooting since 14 years old and some time spent in law enforcement(Used a shoulder holster back then but this one is better). Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.“One cannot legislate the maniacs off the street... these maniacs can only be shut down by an armed citizenry. Indeed bad things can happen in nations where the citizenry is armed, but not as bad as those which seem to be threatening our disarmed citizenry in this country at this time.”

VHS System
Everything I expected. High quality leather and fittings. Tried to adjust it myself, but still needed a buddy for final fit. Comfortable, and I like the way it distributed the load across your shoulders.

VHS Shoulder Holster
As I have come to expect with Galco products, the VHS shoulder holster was exactly what I wanted. As stated in the other reviews, the "system" is a little hard to get adjusted but I think I've found the sweet spot and I am very pleased with the product.

VHS/Jackass Systems
Back in the olden days...when the 92FS first came to the civilian market, I had to have it! And of course the only carry rig appropriate for such a firearm was the Miami Classic by ...Galco.

I still have that rig in a nicely broken in comfort. However, certain things came to pass over time, and it is very hard to conceal horizontally. As a duty weapon I never noticed it on my hip. But serious weight loss got me to where I just couldn't hide it with the Classic.

Then I saw the VHS Shoulder System! And the Jackass!
I doubled down as fast as I could!!!
Like the other gentlemen mentioned, hard to get it just right. If I remember correctly it took me up to maybe two weeks of fiddling and tweaking it to get it "just right".
Thirty years out of a good gun leather.
Yeh, sounds good to me.

yes its a bit difficult to get adjusted correctly, maybe some slight change in design would be worth thinking about or different fasteners so that it doesn't need 2 people to do it, or maybe people could use a sturdy jacket as a template to get it most of the way there and then fine tune on yourself after?

having said that its a really good quality product and extremely comfortable.

I was looking for another concealed carry option to get the gun off of my belt. Sometimes it would dig into my hip or whatever. Being a leaner guy the horizontal options(Miami or jackass) would not be concealable for me as they would stick out too much but the vertical would be better. I carry a Glock 19. Adjusting the harness was definitely a 2 person job and it was a pain to get it just where I wanted it(thanks wifey!) But when it was all said and done, I love this holster. And the tie done straps function as suspenders to hold the pants up! I do not believe that a single holster does all but this holster does wonders in the winter under a zip up hoodie or jacket. Shoulder carry is now an option for me.

I bought the VHS vertical system in 2017. I am 5 ft - 10 inches tall and weigh 170. I have tried for months to get this vertical holster adjusted so that the 2 holster attachment buckles do not bite me in my armpit. Even if I lower the holster down to waist level... it still causes discomfort from the straps rubbing around my pit. Maybe because I'm muscular with a body fat of 15% and wear a 46/48" shirt ? Have tried everything with no success. Lean people beware.... you might be more comfortable with the Miami 2 horizontal rig. The attachment buckles are much further apart offering more seperated strap width under your armpit. I have ordered one myself and I'm hoping for a better comfort experience. Gr8 build quality. I have several 1911 belt holsters and love them all. Will update my comments once my Miami 2 arrives. Cheers :--)

Model 19 357 6"
Big, Heavy 6" revolver. Purchased this vertical holster to carry my model 19 6" on a 4 wheeler. Super comfortable. To my surprise buy switching grips, this revolver actually conceals under my summer, light weight motorcycle jacket and any loose fitting button up shirt. (un tucked) Where I live it is always at are over a 100 deg. I do not sweat under this rig, (cotton undershirt) even with the weight of a 6" model 19. Anyone looking for a way to carry a full size weapon look no further.
