The Northern Wilderness Chest Rig is rugged enough to endure years of continual use, yet it is incredibly comfortable and crafted from the very highest quality leathers. Tried and true, this Alaskan style chest rig is highly adjustable to fit any frame or mode of carry and perfect for almost any activity where you need your pistol easily accessible but out of the way. The chest rig also comes with a six-round slide with matching leathers.

We offer the Northern Wilderness rig embellished with stunning genuine exotic leather inlay. We have caiman crocodile (pictured) or python skins in stock and have access to many other exotic leathers. Alternatively, we have a less expensive version of this rig that does not include an exotic skin inlay. Please select the "No Inlay" option when ordering. 

It is your responsibility to select the correct size rig! The sizes are determined by the circumference of your chest. Please use a tape measure to measure around your chest and then select the size that best suits you.

Our single action holsters are modeled on the common style used in and around the beginning of the 1870's through the end of the 1890's in the American West. They will fit most single action army or replica firearms for Cowboy Action Shooting sports such as any Colt 1873 Army (Pietta or Uberti models etc), Ruger Vaquero or New Ruger Vaquero. We can also custom build these holsters to fit any revolver.

Hellhound gun leathers, belts and holsters, are works of art that are made to order and handcrafted one at a time in our workshop in Utah. These are not mass produced or made ahead of time and each holster is carefully hand cut and crafted to fit your firearm.

We are a very small, custom leather shop and due to high demand, our lead times have increased.

Our current lead times for gun leathers is roughly 20-24 weeks.


**NOTE Regarding Cross Draw Holsters: If you prefer a Cross Draw holster, please be aware that selecting the "Cross Draw" option will slightly alter the holster to accommodate for cross draw carry. The skirt of the holster will be shortened to the collar and widened at the belt loop to reduce twisting. Our standard cant for cross draw holsters is 20 degrees. If you would like more information on how a cross draw holster will appear or if you would like a sharper cant on your holster, please contact us.

We understand that purchasing a holster for your gun is a very personal process and we invite you to contact us with any questions, concerns or custom requests. 

We are happy to take custom orders if you require modifications (such as cant degree or cross draw if you don't prefer a straight drop holster) that we do not list. If you would like to include a slight modification to your holster - Contact us for options!
