It gives a natural and smooth grip and is easy to draw during firing. It generally comes with a harness, but in a cross belted way, to provide support from the back and also a small belt to fix the position of the holster firmly, looks like carrying a backpack but is very stylish and comfortable and the weight of the guns is not felt on the body of the person.

The harnessing is flexible and makes it comfortable to hold the gun. The leather used is obtained from the back portion of animals to manufacture the product with pure and fine leather of a minimum 9’oz.

There are few hostlers where the firing end or muzzle is upwards and the but is downwards which is not that preferable except for professionals. This upward butt vertical holster has more advantages than horizontal or any other orientation-based holster as it’s easy to pull the gun.

These are also available with customization such as padded holsters with break-preventing harness straps for flexible holding which are adjustable. This padding is provided for all the above-discussed types of leather shoulder holsters, with soft cotton material made pockets to protect the gun from misfire or any kind of corrosion.
