U.S.A. -( Autumn is here, and when the wilderness beckons, reach for Galco’s Great Alaskan chest holster. Ideal for both handgun hunting and protection while fishing, camping, or hiking in bear country, the Great Alaskan’s positioning on the chest keeps it clear of gear carried near the waistline and also helps keep your handgun dry when wading. It’s also a great choice for riding, whether on an ATV or on horseback.

Speed can be essential when an easily-spooked game or an unpredictable predator appears, and the Great Alaskan’s positioning at the front of the body offers a speedy and simple draw. An outdoorsman’s holster also needs to retain the handgun in the rough-and-tumble hunting and hiking fields. The Great Alaskan ensures secure retention with a simple safety strap that features a glove-friendly polymer finger tab.

The Great Alaskan is extremely comfortable with heavy handguns, using both a wide premium-steerhide shoulder strap and a torso strap that comfortably bear the weight of a large-framed revolver or auto.

The Great Alaskan is constructed of extremely sturdy yet beautiful premium steerhide in Galco’s signature hand-rubbed, oil-finished tan. Holster, harness, and straps come ready for easy end-user adjustment. The harness will also accept an optional carrier for spare ammo, sold separately.

Coming from Galco, I’m sure it quality, HOWEVER, Galco also comes with a price…
Here is basically the same holster, without the Galco price…top notch…


I couldn’t agree more! I have several Diamond D holsters, they are EXTREMELY well made.


Hey man! Thanks for the great suggestion! Quality with lower cost! My wallet likes, lol.


If they have a holster for your revolver, it’s $225!
