A leather pistol holster that is worn around the shoulders, placing the pistol on the chest. — In-game description

The Chest Holster is a piece of clothing in DayZ Standalone used to hold a handgun. It cannot be worn at the same time as other items from the "Vest" category.

NOTE: This holster cannot hold handguns which have certain attachments equipped due to size, such as a Red 9 with a buttstock attached.


  • For a period of time after their introduction in 0.44, the Chest Holster was able to hold a pair of Binoculars in place of the usual handgun (see above). This was corrected in the 0.45 update that followed.
