Galco’s VHS 4.0 shoulder holster system is now available for Glock 17 or 19 series pistols that are equipped with a Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-1 HL, Viridian X5L, or Inforce Wild2 weaponlight. The holster also works with pistols that are equipped with a red dot optic on the slide.

Galco’s original VHS (Vertical Holster System) is field-proven design that has seen service from Afghanistan to America. The VHS series provides a very comfortable alternative solution for those who like Galco’s world-famous Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style shoulder holster. 

The VHS 4.0 updates the VHS design with re-contoured shoulder straps for added comfort and concealment, a new harness fastener system, an innovative new tie-down system and a new spare ammo carrier for revolver-compatible models.

The harness is key component of all Galco shoulder systems, and thus includes the VHS 4.0. The VHS 4.0 uses a four-point harness that pivots independently and is connected by the clover-shaped, trademarked Flexalon swivel back plate. This works in conjunction with the patented swivel connectors and results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for virtually all body sizes and shapes. The new tool-free harness fastener system offers better security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.

The VHS 4.0 comes complete with vertical holster, harness, double ammo carrier, tie-downs and harness fasteners. The system is fully modular and optional interchangeable accessories and components can be purchased separately to create a unique shoulder system all your own. With this latest update, the VHS 4.0 works with most-current models of one of the most popular firearms in the world, allowing you to continue to use a holster you know and trust with the newest firearms on the planet.

MSRP for the VHS 4.0 shoulder holster system is $264.00, and more information on this product and other gear from Galco is available at galcousa.com.
