Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome Shoulder Holster !
Great holster! The lightest Galco has to offer. Sure it might not last as long as the Miami or Jackass but it will still hold its own. Good for desert...

Does what it is supposed to, probably not for an office environment

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on May 1, 2014
First and foremost: If you watch YouTube and see a bunch of gun guys talk about how great this is, know that it is a great value. If you're an office professional looking to CC at work, keep looking. Typical sport coat or blazer will hardly make it any less obvious your carrying. Got one for my G19, sold it after 2 days. Go IWB with V-Clips and proper gun belt w/ velcro lining.

All in all the holster adjusts well, does what it is supposed to. It is comfortable to wear, great for driving. I know some guys freak out with their IWB rig afraid of printing, if that's the case then you will have a nervous breakdown sporting one of these. Only very loose fitting garments will provide suitable cover.
Pros: Good quality at a good price point for shoulder holster
Cons: Leather needs breaking in...
Would recommend: Yes

pretty decent

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 24, 2013
the heavier your carry the more backache you can get if not balanced. try to put a bigger heavier mag in the mag holder. the soft leather is fairly comfy itself.
Pros: value, easy setup, plenty of length in the straps
Cons: causes shoulder and back ache if not balanced and galco for some reason doesn't include the straps to tie it down to your belt, they sell them separately, not the best value for the straps either...
Would recommend: Yes

Quality holster for reasonable cost

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 31, 2012
I actually bought this holster for my Glock 36. Note that the CL224 for the Glock 17 (in the description above) also fits the Glock 19,22,23,26,27,31,32,33,34,35, and 36. After I got it assembled and fit, which only took about 15 minutes to get exactly the right fit - it immediately became my favorite shoulder holster due to the concealibility and light weight. My wife liked it so much that she has confiscated this one for use with her Glock 26 and 19 - I'm ordering another this weekend for myself.

I am 6'4"/230lbs and the wife is 5'3"/115lbs - the holster is easily adjustable to fit either of us perfectly. I would recommend ordering the extra set of Galco "Chicago Screws" from OP ($5)at the time of your order so that the excess leather straps can be retained after your initial adjustment.

I can't say enough positive things about the Galco Classic Lite or my outstanding customer experience with Optics Planet. I do wish Galco manufactured the same holster for my Glock 30, which is my primary carry weapon. With the Glock 30, I use the Galco Miami Classic Shoulder rig, which is excellent also.

If you buy this product, you will not be disappointed. Thanks.
Pros: Excellent quality, comfortable for long periods, simple to set up/adjust to fit
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Best way to Conceal Carry

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, SC Written on January 30, 2012
I got this should holster after a little delay, Optics Planet must not have had in stock, took them 3 1/2 days to get it to them then shipped it to me, for this and screw missing, I dropped a star. When I got the holster, it had one of the strap screws missing in package, this was a new holster, so must have been left out by Galco. So I called them, long, long time on phone, then guy on other end really did not care to listen to my concern and suggestions. I would ship this with two sets of screws instead of instructing people on trimming excess straps after screwing together. Two screws on each strap would be better than cutting! Also, they should include the belt tie straps also. It's like getting a basketball without the air needle to put air in it! I must say though this is by far the best way to carry a concealed weapon. I have tried IWB, OWB's this tops them 200%.
Pros: Light, nice design
Cons: not complete, customer service could be better...
Would recommend: Yes

Comfortable sturdy shoulder rig under $100

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 25, 2011
once I got this thing broken in I really started liking it.
I did have to remove the tension screw completely before I could get my glock 22 in it before the gun would finally fit. After I got it in there i put the tension screw back in. It took several hours to adjust but now it fits great, not too bulky and is easy to conceal.
Pros: great if you're in and out of the car all day
Cons: takes a lot of time and patience to set up...
Would recommend: Yes

Got this one for a friend

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 9, 2011
I got this one for a friend, and one like it for myself (I'm left handed).

Shoulder holsters are some thing of a speciality item, but there's a time and a place for them and we're both VERY pleased....

Awesome Shoulder Holster !

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on May 20, 2009
Great holster! The lightest Galco has to offer. Sure it might not last as long as the Miami or Jackass but it will still hold its own. Good for deserts or hot climate...BAD for Snow or rain.. cracking or shrinking could occur with water. can be used fine without any tie downs...but sometimes prefer the ammo tie down for the extra hold when needed.
Pros: Tubular !!
Cons: dont get it wet...make sure to work the leather holster to break in......
Would recommend: Yes
