The 1051 ALS Shoulder Holster System provides heightened retention capabilities never before offered in a shoulder holster design. With the ALS system, once the weapon is holstered, it "locks" into place. A simple straight up draw is possible once the ALS is de-activated by your thumb while obtaining shooting grip on the weapon. Unique to this design is the ability to wear the holster in either a horizontal or vertical position. The materials used in the harness provide excellent strength-to-weight ratios, allowing the use of cooling and weight saving apertures throughout the harness design. Strategically placed suspender clips keeps the unit firmly in place, and limit unwanted equipment exposure during bodily movement. The 1051 features SAFARILAMINATE™ construction, which allows for ease of draw and re-holstering with one hand.
