Returning, but looks to be a good product

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on January 8, 2011
This looks to be a great product with many options, but it is not for smaller framed people. The harness protrudes when set to a comfortable level for me (I'm a small guy). It is extraordinarily difficult to wear a button up shirt with this because it is very obvious when the holster is not 100% pinned on properly, and if the harness slides to any side then the misalignment with the buttons because very apparent.

Wearing the holster on the belt was the most comfortable option for me but unfortunately is not what I was looking for-- I was looking for a harness to conceal carry.

If you're a small framed person or skinny/underweight then this is not a product for you. Go for an IWB.
Pros: Multiple wear options
Cons: Takes quite a bit of time to size properly, no ties to belt to keep the harness primarily off to one side...
Would recommend: Yes

Love it.

I have the Glock 26 model. This system isn't for everyone, but I love it. It's plenty comfortable, and wearing it with a black outer shirt, it all but disappears with simple positioning of the arm. The price is great - under $70, shipped.

The shirt helps hold it in position, and it can be positioned just about anywhere on the rib cage, from deep under arm to high and in front of the arm, almost on the pectoral muscle. I carry fairly high and fairly far forward, crossdraw. But, even a high strongside carry is feasible by positioning it low and to the rear. a lady's short coat could conceal it fully, without coming below the waistline.

Now, the cons. I don't know what Galco was thinking in omitting certain features. Specifically, why aren't the mushroom pins removable? Seems if they had left a couple alternate positions on the rib plate, and made the pins removable, this could easily be a horizontal carry holster, or a slant carry that would be even more comfortable and accessible. Yes, there is a cant adjustment, but the available cants are sufficient only for OWB carry, not enough to change a vertical shoulder carry to an intermediate or horizontal carry. That's the biggest gripe I have with this rig.

Other minor annoyances include the tension adjustment screw - it should be reversed. One end of the adjuster mechanism protrudes about a quarter inch, and nearly cylindrical. The other end protrudes slightly less and is wider and rounder. Guess which end they pointed...

good value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on November 2, 2007
it does exactly what it says.its pretty comfortable forgetting its on after a couple of minutes.it is a very secure holster that wont move around like the other non leather holsters will and with the trigger strap holding the gun in place its not going anywhere including someone trying to taking it from you until YOU release the snap.but overall I think I can live with the flaws with being able to wear my gun in a shoulder holster that doesn't require me wearing a suit or jacket to cover the straps.
Pros: it does exactly what it says.its pretty comfortable forgetting its on after a couple of minutes.it is a very secure holster that wont move around like the other non leather holsters will and with the trigger strap holding the gun in place its not going anywhere including someone trying to taking it from you until YOU release the snap.but overall I think I can live with the flaws with being able to wear my gun in a shoulder holster that doesn't require me wearing a suit or jacket to cover the straps.
Cons: its kinda flimsy, the plastic piece on the side that the holster itself attaches to is a little over sized and nothing is made from leather...
