This holster from Aysesa is hands-down the best leather shoulder holster we tested, thanks to the combination of quality materials, construction, and design. This holster is very comfortable, and while it's not exactly light, it's lighter than many holsters. It fit all the pistols in our test, including a large, heavy 1911. The holster is slim and lightweight, and it's made from genuine leather, not some type of faux leather. It also has a leather flap that covers the trigger, and this flap is adjustable, so the angle of the trigger guard can be adjusted to suit the shooter's preference. The holster is very comfortable, and while it's not exactly light, it's lighter than many holsters. The stitching is very well done, and it's made of a soft, supple leather that doesn't scratch or cut. This holster is designed specifically for 1911-style pistols, and all 1911's fit very tightly. The holster has a pair of tie-down straps, as well as a small pocket for a spare magazine. The holster is handmade, and while it may take a few weeks to arrive, it's worth the wait.

Barsony New Gun Shoulder Holster w/Dbl Mag Pouch for 380 & Ultra-Compact 9mm 40 45 (Kimber Micro 9mm)

Barsony New Gun Shoulder Holster w/Dbl Mag Pouch for & 380 Ultra-Compact 9mm 40 45 (Kimber Micro 9mm)

by Barsony Holsters and Belts

This traditional shoulder holster has wide flat shoulder pads made from durable suede leather which grabs your clothing. The shoulder pads do not slide from your shoulder as easily as Cordura shoulder pads.

The Barsony holster is well made and comfortable to wear, and it offers a surprising amount of comfort for a gun holster. It easily fits my Sig Sauer P320, my Glock 17, and my two Springfield XDm pistols, and my Kimber Micro 9mm fits as well. The holster has a thumb-break retention strap, and the holster itself has a sight protector channel built/sewn in, so it's pretty easy to draw my pistols. The holster is adjustable for left or right-handed persons, and it's ambidextrous, so it can be worn on either the left or right side. The Barsony holster also has a double magazine pouch, which makes it easy to carry two pistols and two magazines at the same time. The double magazine pouch is big enough to fit my Springfield XDm Compact 9mm pistol and my Kimber Micro 9mm, but it's a bit small to fit my Springfield XDm 45. The holster is lightweight, and it only weighs 10 oz.

MASC HOLSTER Premium Leather Vertical Shoulder Holster System with Magazine Double Carrier for Kimber 1911 5'' Inch BBL

by MASC HOLSTERS

KOZA Vertical Shoulder holster Made from Premium Genuine Leather. Hand-made molding for a perfect fit. Double magazine carrier. Can be attached to the belt both from the holster and magazine carrier for a more comfortable pistol carrying experience.

The Kimber 1911 5'' Inch BBL, Right Hand Draw, Brown Color 1111 is one of the best 1911 holsters we tested, and it's the best left-handed option we reviewed, as well. The leather harness is lined with a soft, thick fleece, and the straps are made of leather, so they feel comfortable and won't dig into your shoulder. The harness and straps are fully adjustable, so even if you're 6'2", the harness should fit you perfectly. The holster comes with two magazines, and both fit comfortably in the magazine case, which attaches to the top of the holster with the included strap. The holster's belt clip is also removable, and you can wear the holster on a belt, a shoulder rig, or a waistband. The holster also has a second belt clip on the outside, so you can ride the holster on a belt that's shorter than your belt. The holster's belt clip is wide, so it's easy to clip to almost any type of belt. The holster also has a loop for attaching a silencer, a zippered pocket, and two loops for attaching a mag carrier. The holster's belt clip swivels, so it won't scratch the inside of your car, and it's tough enough to hold a gun with up to 8 pounds of recoil. The harness is thin enough that you can carry two magazines, and the magazine case's strap fits the holster's belt clip, so you can carry the holster and magazines in one easy-to-carry package. The holster is also surprisingly concealable, and the sight rail helps protect the leather. The holster also doubles as a gun belt, so you can wear the holster and magazines with a belt rig. The holster is made from high-quality materials, and the craftsmanship is top-notch. The holster is comfortable to wear, and it's built to last.

by Barsony Holsters and Belts

Precision stitching, lightweight (only 7 oz) and is made in the USA. This traditional shoulder holster has a wide flat shoulder pad made from durable leather which grabs your clothing.

Barsony makes some of the best holsters on the market, and their thumb break shoulder holsters are among the best. This holster features a thumb break retention strap to securely hold your gun in place, and the leather is soft and smooth to the touch. The holster itself features an adjustable belt loop that allows it to fit any belt size, and it's easy to adjust. The harness is also fully adjustable, so the smaller your gun is, the more comfortable it will be. Overall, this holster is very comfortable, and the price is very good. The only drawback we found is that it's not compatible with certain compact 380s, such as the Kimber Micro 9mm and Kel-Tec PF9, but that's only a minor inconvenience. We also wish it was bigger, so it could fit guns like the Glock 26, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Smith & Wesson M&P 9, Smith & Wesson M&P 40, Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40, Smith & Wesson M&P 22/25, Smith & Wesson M&P 45, Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40 (Model 5946), Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40 (Model 5946), Smith & Wesson M&P 9/40 (Model 5946).

The MASC fits the Kimber K6S perfectly, and the holster has plenty of space in the waistband for heavy pants and a belt. Because the holster is designed to accommodate heavy pants, we recommend wearing pants with belt loops.

The straps are fully adjustable for all day comfort. Belt tie down on back of holster and belt or belt loop tie down on the bottom of the holster.

This holster is extremely comfortable, and it's well built. The leather is thick, soft, and fairly supple, and the stitching is well-executed. The harness is adjustable, and it fits my 9mm Micro perfectly. The adjustable retention strap is a nice touch, and the thumb-break is easy to manipulate. The sight protector channel is also a nice feature. Our only complaint is that the harness is too tight in the draw position, and the gun tends to slip out a bit. The holster also has a small loop on the belt loop, so you can attach a lanyard to the holster.
