The Bodyguard is the most comfortable, concealable shoulder rig in production today. Nothing but the finest materials is used in its construction. The rig comes with a provision for spare ammo. The harness is made of high quality chrome tan leather, while the holster itself is made of black angus steer hide, as with all other Alessi Holsters.
When adjusted properly, this rig can be worn for exceptionally long periods without any discomfort. The harness does not utilize any nylon or elastic which can be uncomfortable after extended periods of wear.
The holster is positioned horizontally (butt down in the hollow of the body) for a fast natural draw. The unique ‘Speed Break’ system is foolproof and fast. Some of the holsters will be made with a thumb break, due to the nature of the weapon. For example, Glock and Sig Sauer will have a thumb break, as well as those without external safeties. On the opposite side of the weapon is a magazine pouch, or speedloader/dump pouch.
Manufactured by Alessi Holsters
Each holster is hand made in the U.S.A

I recently bought a Bodyguard rig for my Dan Wesson C-Bob, based on my experience with two 30-year old Bodyguard rigs I still use (one for a S&W J-frame and one for a S&W K-frame). Plus, I have a Bodyguard rig that is 20+ years old for my HK P7M8.
If anything, the newest generation is even better than the old ones. It is slightly more comfortable, and with the Speed Break it is fast. I am amazed that other shoulder rigs use a conventional thumb-break, as I have had difficulty presenting from those unless I use the offside arm to clamp down on the holster itself. If you need to use your offside arm to open a door or block a punch, that could be a problem.
This is THE BEST shoulder rig on the market!
