Product Description

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 some revolvers, the Miami Classic is available in right hand draw in tan or black finish.

Holster fits my 1911's well, very comfortable around my shoulders, does not feel like anything is there. Would suggest this item to customers who do not like wearing their firearm on their waist.

Fast shipment. Nice holster, but a bit pricey, I was hoping the shoulder part of the strap was a little wider. Fits a Kimber 1911 with or without the laser. Tends to shift some, which was expected since it doesn't come with the side braces that attach to the belt. At that price, I think they should be included.

I have a Miami Classic for my Glock 22 as well. My only complaint with this one is I wish the magazine holsters would hold 10 round magazines. It has 2 snap positions so I presumed it would.

Best shoulder holster out there! I always buy Galco holsters for all of my guns (which is quite a few) and they are always fantastic products. All of Galco's holsters are way overpriced, but you get what you pay for. You will not find a better holster. DOES NOT INCLUDE THE TIE-DOWN STRAPS! I had to order those separate ($25 bucks), granted I don't use them anyway.

It is pure quality. I was concerned about comfort but the weight is so evenly distributed, even with the large government model 1911 the weight is not a problem. love it will use it in the winter when wearing a coat. Excellent product and more than I was expecting. Used the Galco video when putting it together and that was very helpful and made it a lot easier. I think one of the very best directional video's I have seen in a long time. I use this and The Summer Comfort inside the pant holster too. Recommend these products very highly for those with a CHL.

Bought this for my Colt 45 ACP. To my surprise, my piece did not fit the holster. The holster itself is very rigid leather and does not accommodate my pistol. I removed holster rivets and still could not get it in. Bad purchase for me.

Since recently purchasing a high end .45 APC, I have also bought a couple conceal carry holsters. A paddle type and an IWB. Both are good holsters, but a bit uncomfortable for EDC. I have since been looking for a holster style that would effectively conceal and also provide the comfort when driving as well as being out in public. I always thought shoulder holsters were for LEOs and looked clumsy. After researching various styles and reading reviews, Galco's Miami Classic seemed to have exactly what I would like, top quality leather, workmanship and sturdy design. Although it was higher priced, the holster fit my new .45 like a glove. Adjustment to fit took a little trial and error, but once there it was perfect. I do suggest purchasing the leather tie down straps for your belt. Easy to snap in place. They keep the gun and mag holsters well balanced and stable..
Concealment is easy enough in winter with a coat, however in the warmer months, would suggest a t-shirt under an oxford button type shirt with shirtail out.
The Galco Miami Classic works great for me and I highly recommend it.
