Angled view showing generous drainage for both magazine and main holster.

The 1″ webbing is elastic, so the retention is positive, and the 1.5″ webbing is standard Nylon, wide for comfort and more than long enough for me at 3XL with ability to go up 2 shirt sizes approximately.  The primary retention strap is able to accept a vertical strap looped to it for belt retention if desired; or for suspenders to go through. It can be also used to hold laynard to handgun if desired.

It is the first pistol rig I have ever made, and is designed for the Hi Point .45ACP Model JHP handgun. Carries 1 extra mag on it, and has extra long chest strap for big chests.

I find that if I bend over, it doesn’t loosen up or go awkward, but that’s with the cross strap being adjusted to as small as possible. With the main weight being on the top of the gun, and the cross strap holding the holster from that same area, it is pretty stable.
