DeSantis has released the M74 Predator II Bandoleer Rig, as a secure carry option for the backcountry hunter. Built from a five-part ballistic-nylon laminate, the M74 Predator II is intended for large-frame, scoped revolvers. An integral flap with a fastener provides not only protection from the elements, but also adds security. A wide, padded bandoleer strap supports the weight of these heavy handguns well, for optimal comfort.  For a smooth draw, the holster is lined with low-friction pack cloth. A belt tie-down strap is also included, for added stability.
