Blackhawk SERPA Shoulder Harness

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 31, 2012
The Blackhawk shoulder holster system is ideal for those who wish flexibility in their concealed carry. Normally you have two options if you change sidearms. Buy a cheap one-size-fits-all nylon rig that fits but not perfectly or buy a custom fit rig that fits perfectly but sets you back $100+ for each pistol. The Blackhawk system allows you to change sidearms by simple replacing one SERPA holster with another appropriate SERPA holster. The magazine carrier changes to fit also. Going from a double stack to a single stack is a simple change requiring two minutes time. Since the SERPA holster draw is identical for all models there is no re-learning required. In my opinion this shoulder system has two negatives. Because of its' design it is rather bulky and tends to print. Not a big problem when the weather requires a jacket or vests but somewhat difficult to deal with in warmer climates. The second negative is the tie-downs. In my opinion when carrying a heavier pistol tie-downs are absolutely necessary. The Blackhawk systems provides the tie-downs which adjust via Velcro but they are definitely too long for practical use. At their shortest position they still allow the pistol to flop and swing beyond most other systems I have tried. Overall the system works well, allows the owner flexibility and options not normally found on shoulder holster systems.
Pros: Flexibility
Cons: Bulky...
Would recommend: Yes

Good luck matching the correct holster with the corresponding harness! I already owned the Blackhawk CQC serpa III holster, and order what should have been the correct "Right-hand" harness #41SH01BK-R only to receive what must be a Left-Hand one in a R/H box! There is NO WAY to make it work, even switching to a Left-Hand draw since the screw patterns in the holster will not match. BlackHawk's site offers NOTHING which makes this matter clearer, and frankly for all the hassles... I shoulda bought a Galco or Bianchi.
Cons: Unecessarily confusing to determine correct set-up...

SERPA shoulder harness

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 18, 2009
This shoulder holster fits the SERPA holsters and accessories, such as magazine pouches, very nicely. I used this for the holster on one side and two mag pouches on the other. However, I have a full size 45 Glock, and while it worked, it wasn't able to hold the gun securely against my side. It would flop around when doing anything physical, and while seated, would tend to slide toward my back making it difficult to reach the gun. The elastic straps that are meant to fasten to your belt loop weren't adequate. I am a medium build, and the medium sized harness was almost too big; I had all the adjustment I could out of it trying to secure the gun. Overall, this is a nice harness and I would recommend it, but it would probably work best with smaller guns.
Pros: works well with the SERPA holsters and accessories
Cons: adjustability; not the best choice for larger pistols...
Would recommend: Yes
