I have a nylon alaska type chest holder from cabelas that rides under your arm or on your chest. Very happy with it. Keeps my S&W 44 snug as a bug and easy to get at.

I'd say diamond D chest holster or kenai chest holster.

I had a Simply Rugged pancake, when I had a 4" Redhawk, and it was comfortable and protective enough.  They make a chest harness for it as well.

i was going to buy a diamond d, but ended up getting a "man gear alaska" chest holster for my 4.2" redhawk.  it was half as much(and i had a bunch of cabelas points to burn).  very comfortable to wear, and very adjustable.  sort of a tanker holster that you could wear on your belt in a pinch as well.

in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

They are expensive but, Gunfighters Inc Kenai is a fine holster.  I can wear it under my bino harness and still have clean access to my pistol.

I got one for my 6" 686 and forget I am wearing it because if is so comfortable.

Simply Rugged Pancake with the optional Chesty Puller rig.  Shown here with 3.75" Ruger SBH but also fits 5" BFR with a little barrel showing.  Carries nicely on the belt as well.

Nice thing about those is the chest harness is add-on, if you want it.

I love the Simply Rugged holsters. I have one made for a 4" Redhawk that's been used for just about every model of mid-large frame revolver you can think of other than the big X-Frame smiths.

After getting an Encore and looking at how much for a Simply Rugged Custom or another one for my 7.5 RH once I scope it, I am thinking I am heading on down to Tandy to tool up for some "Custom" leather projects.
