First Look: Galco VHS 4.0 Holster for SIG Sauer P320F/M17

posted on November 25, 2020

Galco is now making their VHS 4.0 holster for the SIG Sauer P320F/M17 pistol, with or without a red dot optic. Galco’s original VHS (Vertical Holster System) has been tested and proven by users all across the globe, from Afghanistan to America. The VHS series holsters provides a very comfortable alternative for those who like Galco’s world-famous Miami Classic shoulder holster but prefer a more traditional vertical carry style. 

Galco has continued to refine, update and improve the VHS over the years since it was first introduced. The VHS 4.0 now has re-contoured shoulder straps for added comfort and concealment, introducing a new harness fastener system, an innovative new tie-down system, and a new spare ammo carrier for revolver users.

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

The VHS 4.0 for the P320F/M17 pistol comes complete with a vertical holster, harness, double ammo carrier, tie-downs and harness fasteners. The holster is fully modular, and  optional interchangeable accessories and components may be purchased separately to create a unique shoulder system that is tailored to your needs.
