High Ready Chest Holster

Now available for the Smith & Wesson M&P with or without red-dot sights, Galco's High Ready chest holster system is just the latest in the company's expanding line of torso-worn hunting holsters.

High Ready is a comfortable carry position for large-frame semiauto when hunting, fishing, camping or hiking in bear country. Positioning on the chest keeps the handgun clear of gear carried near the waistline or on the back, and allows rifle carry on either shoulder. It also helps keep the handgun dry when wading, and is a great choice for riding, be it on an ATV or horseback.

The High Ready’s comfort level comes from three major design features:

The first is its backing plate, composed of a ballistic nylon front over a closed-cell foam body. The back portion of the plate that rides against the wearer’s chest is lined with Galco’s Comfort Cloth, an Adaptive Performance Mesh that provides padding and moisture wicking.

Second, is the unique harness construction that allows the holster to pivot at three independent attachment points, maximizing freedom of movement and minimizing restriction. Three quickly-operated, highly secure metal side-release buckles attach the holster component to the harness straps at the pivot points.

Finally, the two-inch wide tubular webbing harness straps distribute the weight of a heavy handgun for maximum comfort. One strap goes over either shoulder, while the second wraps around the torso for highly effective weight distribution.

The rigid, open-top Kydex holster pocket offers full slide coverage, provides fast draw and easy holstering, and facilitates a full firing grip. The holster pocket accommodates most red dot sights.
