A Guide To Buying Across Chest Holsters

Concealed carry holsters are making a big comeback in modern times. Because of the ever growing concealed carry community there is always demand always increasing. There are so many different variations of the old school canteen style holster to choose from. In fact I just bought a couple of new canteen style holsters. I thought I would let you know about them.

Canteen or concealed holster – these types of holsters were popular in the 60’s and 70’s. They consist of a belt that goes across your chest and then an adjustable belt to fit around your gun. When not worn your holster will tuck up under your shirt. These can be a little more tricky to conceal, they can even be seen through a t-shirt. If you don’t have one of the newer style canteen holsters I suggest looking into some of the new adjustable straps that are available.

Adjustable straps are a new favorite among concealment enthusiasts. Like the canteen these will tuck up under your shirt when not worn. But they also offer the benefit of an adjustable harness for added carrying stability. These work well with tactical situations, but can also be worn with a traditional belt if preferred.

There are several new designs that feature an adjustable harness. One in particular is a tactical holster called the Over The Shoulder Backpack. It comes in either black or tan and has an adjustable harness that will go from your shoulder to your chest for a comfortable carrying position. The actual holster sits at the bottom of your shoulders, allowing it to stay out of site most of the time. With this design you can still keep your handgun close by, but not feel like you’re always pulling it out.

If you’re into concealment, then you’ve likely seen this before: a pistol tucked in a chest plate, or sometimes even a pistol slicker. A chest rig typically consists of two individual holsters (one that goes in front of the other), but some models incorporate an additional belt clip so you can easily tuck your firearm in when needed. There are different variations of the chest rig. Some are designed to sit high on the chest, allowing for easy access to the firearm. Others may sit lower on the chest, with the clips extending out to a low position. Still others, like the Over The Shoulder Backpack, have a low profile that doesn’t intrude on the neck.

When it comes to backpacking and hiking, I recommend carrying a lightweight, portable device. Because you’ll be moving around constantly, it’s important that your gun is lightweight and portable so it remains effective. For this reason, I always carry an LTC (Leather Trigger Holster) – a small leather pouch that attaches to your belt with clips – whenever I go backpacking.

Over the Shoulder Backpack harnesses are similar to the chest rigs, except they employ nylon straps to hold the gun upright instead of a thin cloth lining. Nylon straps provide a lot more friction than cloth, meaning the gun rides up a bit more. This means that it will be harder to draw your gun as well. On the other hand, I find that nylon straps are less cumbersome when hiking, because they don’t get in the way.

Across The Chest Holsters, or any other type of belt holster, are great when you need to carry your gun with a little more mobility. You’ll have more options when it comes to where and how you carry your handgun. However, you do want to be careful not to get a product that’s too big for your belt. With so many different styles of belt holsters available today, it should be relatively easy to find one that works for you.
