The straps are durable nylon web, strong but light and comfortable and adjustable so you can get the perfect fit.
The buckles are an ultra-strong molded polymer, ensuring your chest holster for Ruger GP100 pistols stays
secure...but also silent.

The holster base is padded with our CoolVent neoprene cushioning fabric, which keeps you comfortable. However, it
also breathes and wicks away moisture, keeping you comfortable and dry during long days on the move. The edges
are fully bound for further comfort.

The holster base is also reinforced with layers of spring steel and woven ballistic nylon, creating a more stable
base. This aids in drawing and reholstering your pistol, so you can depend on your holster working flawlessly in
training or should the need to draw arise.

The retention shell for your pistol is custom-molded, ensuring a perfect fit, sure retention, and seamless draw from
the holster and reinsertion of the pistol. Passive retention is adjustable via the mounting hardware, so you can
set the draw and retention to your exact desired setting. The holster shell is also canted, which assist in
security by letting gravity help hold the pistol in, as well as creating a more natural draw angle when carrying a
pistol in the chest position.

The Ruger GP100 Cloak Chest Holster is made in the USA, and comes backed by our Iron-Clad Guarantee. This
comprehensive product guarantee includes a 30 Day Test Drive trial period after purchase, and our Forever

Needs a few tweaks Review by Doug
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)

Perfect chest holster Review by Ironwill
Arrived in the amount of time states...very comfortable and east to put on by yourself. This holster is very well built and looking forward to using it for a mountain climb in Montana in August 2020! (Posted on 7/3/2020)
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)
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!

Great !!! product!!! Review by 1517
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.
