    I have a revolver that I'd like to carry while I am backpacking. What kind of holster and where should I carry it for safety and accessibility?

    Some Back pack waist belts are designed for a standard belt holster. Wilderness Pack Specialty's has a good design. Military leg holsters can be an option also.

    Thanks for the help. I think I'll get the chest holster.

    There's a few others on the market, think the Diamond D is about the best though.

    I like the Serpa for sure.
    Back country though I like the idea of being able to carry a very large wheel gun, which I don't think they make the Serpas to fit.
