A gun worn across the chest reduces the width of the hunter and prevents the gun from snagging on branches and brush. This also protects the weapon itself from moisture and debris.
The Kenai Chest holster (see full specs) mixes traditional nylon with a modern polymer to produce a fitted holster for your Glock 20. Wearing across the chest can be a pain if the holster is not fitted properly. However, the Kenai has more than enough points of adjustment to make it fit most hunters.
