Do you spend time in the outdoors? Would you like to be prepared for an encounter with a bear, ornery moose, mountain lion, or worse, a human predator? The Kenai Chest Holster was designed to be the ultimate way to carry firearm into the wild.

The Kenai was conceived and built after a run in (almost literally) with a black bear while mountain biking in Washington State in 2011. Since then, it’s gone on to be the go-to carry method for avid outdoors people around the world. It’s also used by select military and law enforcement units to carry while conducting mounted patrols.

The Kenai was designed with all day comfort in mind and carries the largest .50 caliber revolvers and semi-autos in extreme comfort. The harness utilizes wide flat webbing and buckles located forward or your torso so there is no interference with pack straps. It also has heavy duty double layer elastic sewn in key locations, so it expands and contracts as you breathe. Because it runs underneath your back county setup if you drop your pack or other gear, your sidearm always stays with you.

The Kenai gives you the confidence you need in that situation when split seconds count. The Kenai uses inherent retention so the pistol snaps in. Should you need it, there are no snaps, straps, zippers or buttons, you just grab it and pull. Draw times are every bit as fast as a belt worn range holster. Every holster that leaves our facility has the retention set with the real pistol so we’re 100% sure it will be there when you need it.

The Kenai is built entirely in the USA from US sourced materials and hardware and will withstand a lifetime of the harshest conditions. Like everything we build, there are no threaded fasteners in the Kenai, it’s entirely hard riveted so there is nothing to work loose and fall out.
