Our Miami Classic™ is quite possibly the most imitated shoulder holster system in the world. A direct descendant of the original shoulder system first introduced by Galco in 1970 (then the Famous Jackass Leather Company), the Miami Classic has since become the favorite of professionals worldwide. A key component of this patented shoulder system is its spider harness. All four points of the spider harness pivot independently and are connected by our unique clover shaped Flexalon™ swivel back plate, which is a Galco trademark. This results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for all sizes and shapes. This system is constructed of premium saddle leather and includes holster, harness, ammo carrier and a set of system screws. The Miami Classic is fully modular. Optional accessories and components may be purchased separately. Made for semiautomatic pistols and double-action revolvers, the Miami Classic is available in right hand draw in tan or black finish. To assemble a left-handed or personalized shoulder system, select a holster, harness and ammo carrier from the recommendations.

    This shoulder holster is by far the most comfortable shoulder rig I've worn. It makes the weight of the Glock 22, two magazines, and a pair of hinged cuffs disappear. I wear mine daily,

    I wear several types of holsters for different occasions and outfits and this works well with your suits under your jackets

    I almost died wearing my weapon in this holster. I was once in a shoot out. At my dept, when we go to the range, we only shoot with our guns in our duty holster on our duty belt. We didnt practice from a shoulder rig. Anyway, I was in a shooting. Just as in training, I went for my weapon and freeked out when it wasnt on my hip. It took me an extra second to remember it was hanging from my shoulder. Ive managed to retrieve my gun and shoot the bad guy....but, the extra second, could have caused the death of me.

    I was on a military VIP protection detail with a young Secret Service agent. It was raining and he dropped something next to the car door he was standing next to. As he bent over to pick it up (you guessed it) his weapon fell out of the holster (similar to this one) and landed on the tarmack with a loud "clunk". As he tried to pick it up, he kicked it UNDER the car. Afterwards it was determined he hadn't securied the strap over the weapon. Oh well, the best designed equipment is only as good as the wearer :-)

    This is 1 of 2 shoulder holsters I have and this is by far the best of the 2. I use this whenever I'm off duty.

    Awesome holster. Very stylish and practical. I bought one used for $20.00 and as far as I am concerned they gave it to me. Very durable.

    I love this holster. It is comfortable and looks sharp. I carried it extensively during the winter time in MT (with my CCW). Its pretty much useless during the summer (being as one needs an outer garment to conceal it), but I would imagine that with all the accessories that can be had for it this holster would be very effective and useful for a detective, or investigator. The modular design allows it to be configured into so many variations that anyone could set it up to fit their needs.

    Great shoulder holster well built. Never had a problem with the construction. Fits comfortably, takes a little while to get it adjusted the way you like it.

    Again, a great product if you need the weight distribution. I have a hip problem and it takes off some of the weight when you strap it to your belt on the magazine side.

    I havethe old jackass Leather holster and I have carried it since the early 70's. It only gets more comfortable with age and with little maintenance it remains in perfect condition. I was just checking the difference in price and it is exactly the same as my jackass system. Top quality product.

    I've had this holster for about 2 months and I must say that I love it! It is very comfortable and drawing my weapon is no problem. If you decide to go with this holster, be advised...the first couple of weeks of use may cause a bit of back and shoulder pain if you are not use to wearing a shoulder rig. My partner and I started wearing this holster at the same time. We both experienced a bit of soreness for the first week or so. After adjusting to the holster, neither of us have had any trouble since. I also purchased the tie-down accessories for this holster. I found that I really do not need them. The holster fits and rides perfectly. Drawing the weapon is not a problem with or without the tie-downs. I highly recommend this holster to anyone looking for a shoulder rig.

    I have owned this product for many years. As a rule I wear a belt holster but sometimes they just don't fit the need. Some clothes show a bely holster more than others, this sholder rig fills that gap. On other occasions my back hurts from wearing a lot of gear and the shoulder rig takes the weight off my belt. GREAT product
