Current production Chesty Puller Strap system. Quick and easy adjustment for the shoulder strap and quicker to take the holster on and off the straps Holster, gun, model, trees, houses,& vehicles not included. JUST THE STRAPS.
I came up with the idea for this while fishing ion the Russian River in Alaska. I was working my way back to my truck, fishing a few likely spots. A brown Bear (Kodiak for the Hollywood types) with the proverbial head, as big as a wash tub, decided to cross the 40 wide river and check out my stringer. As I was reaching down inside my neoprene waders for my .44 mag Mountain Gun, it came to me! I should have this gun & holster up where I can get it easier! Went home and made the Chesty Puller Straps, named in honor of one of our nation's most highly decorated and truluy heroic Marines, General Chesty Puller. One of my grand fathers was with Chesty in Haiti, before WWII. The bear? Fortunatly, when he was about halfway across the river, another group of fishermen showed up. With the four of us standing there, Mr. Bear decided he should be someplace else.
Since then I have found this chest harness to be very handy while wearing chest waders or a back pack, I wear this with my live jacket while boating and wore it under my coat in the winter in Alaska. It is a rugged, comfortable, versatile, adjunct to your pancake holster. Handy for hunting, hiking, fishing, boating and some concealment under a heavy coat. What it is not, is a James Bond or Dirty Harry, style of concelament shoulder holster.
The straps connect through the belt slots on your pancake holster (3 SLOTS REQUIRED). I have simplified and strengthed this harness over the years. We strive to make this as simple and rugged as possible, while still making it comfortable to wear and use for weeks at a time.
I made these to fit a wide range of folks from 5'6" and 130 pouinds to 6'3" and 325 lbs., 64" chest is the widest. If you need more strap length, we can make an addition for you.
IMPROVED: Easier to connect with the 3rd belt slot tab. A.K.A. Chesty Straps or CPS. Made from oil tanned, oxblood colored harness leather, this strap system allows you to convert your Pancake hip holster to a chest rig. (Holster not included).
