Cloak Chest Holster by Alien Gear Holsters



The Cloak Chest Holster by Alien Gear Holsters is the perfect accessory for the outdoors, as you can stay armed
without having to worry about cluttering up your waist or anywhere else.

For the backcountry hiker or hunter, your waist is taken up with the waist straps of your pack. You cannot put a holster there, and a shoulder holster is obviously not going to work because it would be directly under the shoulder straps. Across the chest holsters are the best solution to needing to keep a sidearm on you for protection without compromising your ability to access it.

Our shoulder holster starts with a strap harness with durable woven nylon straps. Soft enough to be comfortable, but more than strong enough to endure miles and miles of hard hiking through the backcountry. Durable polymer buckles stay quiet, and hold strong.

The holster base features a cushioning layer of CoolVent neoprene, a breathable moisture-wicking fabric that lets the skin breathe and keeps you from getting the swampy feeling endemic to other chest holster designs.

We also reinforce the holster base with layers of spring steel and woven ballistic nylon. This creates a strong platform for the holster to sit on, assisting with the draw from your chest rig holster.

That makes it strong enough to carry the most strenuous handguns. It's a perfect 1911 chest holster, if you carry a Delta Elite or other 10mm in the backcountry.

It's also available as a revolver chest holster, if your woods carry gun is a .357 or .44 Magnum.

The holster base is joined by a custom-molded retention shell, made for your make and model firearm. The perfect fit ensures greater security and ensures a smooth draw and easy reholstering. Passive retention is adjustable, so you can dial in the retention and draw profile to your desired setting.

The retention shell is canted, so that this chest gun holster has a natural draw angle. At nearly 45 degrees, the cant angle also brings gravity into the equation, ensuring the pistol is carried at an angle for both optimum security and ease of access.

The Cloak Chest Holster is made in the USA. We back this holster with our Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30 Day Test Drive after purchase and our Forever Warranty for the lifetime of the holster. If you trade in your gun for a new model, we'll even trade retention shells with you.

Start your Test Drive today, and carry in comfort!

Chest Holster for Cycling Review by John

This solved my problem of carrying while riding my bicycle. I have been carrying a G42 in my rear jersey pocket but I didn't like it. So, I ordered an AG Chest Holster. Problem solved! It fits under my race cut jerseys with no problem. I wear an under armour type shirt under the holster to prevent chaffing. Now I always have a secure, concealed, easily accessible pistol on my bike rides. Thanks AG! (Posted on 10/25/2020)
Chest holster for 1911 platform Review by Kim

I have always loved alien holsters. The chest holster I had ordered is great except the snap clip had been sewn on backwards and i had t cut stitching to reverse the adjustable clip, so it would not dig into my side while wearing it. It is something that could be easily looked over.. but having to cut a brand new holster to correct a problem is irritating. I had thought about sending it back, but i did not want to wait another 1 1/2 months to get a new one. (Posted on 9/13/2020)
Good Fit almost perfect Review by Rico

Glock Fits like a Glove inside Chest Holster. For me, I can wear Holster over either shoulder. There are many Details that I Like about this Rig, but I only have 1 issue with the Stitching on the Nylon Strap with the plastic buckle, that goes under my Right Arm (Right handed Holster).

Needs a few tweaks Review by Doug
Quality

This is a great design and generally uses quality materials. However, it has two serious short comings: 1) Only two of the three straps are adjustable. All three should be for optimal fit. 2) The six rivets holding the straps to the holster base and back web are prone to fail (heads pop off), rendering the holster useless. I would implore Alien Gear to return to the screw and post fastening method they originally used and is pictured in their photos. The switch to rivets was obviously a cost cutting measure that is unwarranted and compromises quality and durability. A screw and post system would also make it easy to switch between revolver and semi auto bases without having to have two sets of straps. (Posted on 7/18/2020)

Chest Holster Review by Brent

I purchased the Cloak Chest Holster for a Springfield XD .45ACP with 4 inch barrel SKU :CCH-0188-RH-L. I was extremely excited to have a quality product to take into the Alaskan wilderness. That excitement ended about 7 miles into a 27 mile ATV ride when I noticed I had somehow hit my clip release due to it being exposed, lost my fully loaded clip, and one of the mounting screws had come completely out. My suggestion, to extend the case and cover the clip release, as other companies have already done, and use a drop of lock tite on each screw. I should have opted for the more expensive locally manufactured product here in Alaska. (Posted on 6/23/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Brent, thank you so much for your review and feedback! Apologies for the missing mag. We do appreciate the suggestion and feedback regarding this. We recommend using Blue Loctite on all our screwed in holsters.

Chest Holster/Rig Review Review by Andrew

Recently Purchased a Chest Holster and finally got it in and tried it out. Here is my opinion of this set up thus far.
1. Price- 5 out of 5 Great Price
2, Comfort 3.75 out of 5. For me personally I think the side straps could have more expandable material. I say this because when breathing in and out you I feel it gives no slack when you want these to be snug so that it resists shifting with a fully loaded gun in the holster. Also, not a huge fan of the material used on the side straps. Pretty rough feeling and I have no doubt will need some serious break-in . I feel if I went out on a long hike with this set up today, those sides would wear your ribs out pretty fast..
3. Holster Fitment- Gun fits snug and secure in the holster, no bouncing around. Curious how the half holster will do after time and wear and tear. But for now its as snug as a bug.

OVERALL_ Pleased with the price point and was not expecting a $200 holster feel for the price paid. I think with a little bit of tweaking this would be a phenomenal holster for the price point. The sides straps really throw me bc you want them snug, but you have to loosen up a good bit to breathe right so its not grabbing your ribs. I will probably add some extra material myself to the sides to see if it will cushion them up a little.

4.25 out of 5 Overall.

P.S. Alien Gear People, if you decide to tweak those side straps and need a volunteer to try them out,hit me up!

Hi all

Just got my shoulder holster. Was not disappointed, as always GREAT PRODUCT!!! Fit and finish as always superb. Goes over shoulder smoothly. Stitching looks professional, Has rubber grips on inside straps to grab and hold, with different buckles that are very adjustable.. Overall meets and exceeds standards.
OK now why got this one? Here up in Midwest, 6 months or more of the year have to use outer garments. Shoulder holster makes it easier to carry and use properly. It is struggle with in-band waist band holster as you may have to lift up to 5 or more layers to unholster. Also when doing lots of driving easier to access.
does take a little training to get used to handling properly, but that's what practice and training are for. this adds a new dimension to use of equipment, more options.

Would highly recommend. As always train and follow the 4 safety rule when using equipment.
