Galco has expanded its offerings for torso-worn outdoor holster options. The High Ready chest holster fits a myriad of larger-frame semiautomatic pistols for those in outdoor pursuits, such as hiking, fishing, or hunting.

High Ready is ideal for comfortably carrying a large-frame semiauto when hunting, fishing, camping, or hiking in bigger game habitats, like bear country. Positioning on the chest keeps the handgun clear of gear carried near the waistline or on the back and allows for rifle carry on either shoulder. It also helps keep the handgun dry if wading needs to happen, and is a great choice for riding, whether on an ATV or horseback.

Designed for Comfort

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

Backing Plate

The innovative backing plate is 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.

Harness Construction

The unique harness construction 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.


The 2″ wide tubular webbing harness straps distribute the weight of a heavy handgun for maximum comfort. One strap goes over either shoulder, while the second strap wraps around the torso for highly effective weight distribution.

The 2” tubular webbing minimal design of the High Ready chest holster helps keep the weight down along with eliminating any extra bulk on the back for the wearer. This comes especially handy so the wearer can carry a rifle from either shoulder without any interference from the holster.

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