Alien Gear ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster

$51.88
Comfort and unsafety are usually the biggest downfalls of traditional appendix holsters. What could be the best method of concealed carry is usually avoided because of these two issues.

Alien Gear Holsters is redefining this with a new approach to AIWB Carry.

With its breakthrough design, the ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster is now the perfect solution to modern day carry.

Alien Gear Holsters has solved the comfort issue with a new breathable perforated neoprene base that lays softly against the body. With its single mounting point, the AIWB holster will also flex and conform to the body better than ever before.

The Shapeshift Appendix Carry Holster is the safest holster on the market. An optional thumb release ensures the firearm stays in the user’s hands and allow for a quick draw. Unique to Alien Gear Holsters, an “Alien Skin” material grips the firearm to eliminate any possibility of sliding, and a customizable passive retention system ensures your firearm will stay put no matter the situation.

The ShapeShift Appendix Holster is fully compatible with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System. The user can quickly and easily swap out their holster for a different carry configuration to suit their needs as a concealed carrier. Additional carry options are available, including Classic IWB, Shoulder, and Belt Slide.

Alien Gear Holsters uses only the best materials for their holsters; each component is tested for durability and resilience. The ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster includes a Forever Warranty and a 30-Day Test Drive to ensure 100% satisfaction.

Only one problem Review by Michael
Quality

This holster is extremely comfortable and well made. I had an issue with the retention adjustment, called customer service and got a new one free of charge in a couple of days. The only problem that I have is the overall thickness. I got this holster for my g26. I can't conceal this holster at all. So it sits in the drawer and never gets worn. (Posted on 8/14/2018)

I bought the Shapeshift starter kit and compared the AIWB (for my Glock 43) to my old kydex AIWB and found the Shapeshift to be all of 2 to 3MM thicker. Not a big deal at all. I wear the AIWB at the 4 o'clock position and that neoprene backer is so comfortable, I forget that I have it on sometimes. I am quite pleased with the system and will, most likely, be buying expansion kits for it soon. That ankle holster is calling me. (Posted on 7/26/2018)
Needs more work Review by Marine_Dad

I received this as a Father's Day gift from my children. I love the quality of Alien Gear products and have a Cloak Tuck 3.0 as well. My problem with this AIWB holster (Glock 23) is the inability to adjust the cant. Also, if you're going to be sitting for awhile, this holster will cause you some pain. I wore this for 3 hours and was still in pain the next day. It was even a little uncomfortable while standing as well. Don't get me wrong, I love Alien Gear and will be returning this for replacement for my Glock 43 (they sent the wrong one but went ahead and tried it out anyways). I also plan to purchase the ankle holster at some point.

And that would be a claw attachment! This holster is awesome, the most comfortable AIWB holster out there! Easy on easy off the belt, good ride height, good retention. I would love to see a claw add on so I can carry a full frame pistol and not print (Posted on 6/10/2018)
Best so far. Review by RJ

I have tried several other AIWB and this is the most comfortable so far. The engineered shell is perfect and the retention is easily adjustable. I have a G43 setup for my ankle, AIWB and SOB from Alien Gear, depending on my wardrobe for the day. I don't have a problem with printing, but I work hard to keep the weight off so my casual shirts hang properly and my suit jackets have room to breathe. (Posted on 5/21/2018)
great addition, looking forward to some refinement Review by Ed Grubberman

Like everything else I have purchased from Alien Gear, this holster is well built, and the customer service is out of this world! It came with 2 clips one labeled large frame guns, and the other small frame guns... and I cannot see any difference between the 2 of them either visually or in the wearing of the holster. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5 star is because there is no way to adjust how far it sticks out of the belt. I am "ahem" a bit more round, and this causes the gun to print more. I would like to see either a way to adjust the shell to the base or clips that are higher so that the gun can sit closer to the belt. I look forward to see what Alien Gear does in the future with this holster. (Posted on 5/16/2018)
Great Piece of Kit Review by Mad Tempest

I have a Glock 42 & 43 I carry in different scenarios. I also have the double mag carriers to complement the holsters. I have found there is VERY LITTLE imprinting, if any at all. No one has said anything about imprinting and i wear the Appendix holster everywhere when I am wearing an untucked shirt. Very comfortable and almost un noticeable even when sitting. Easy draw and smooth release. I have 2 Alien Gear Holsters and just ordered another. (Posted on 5/11/2018)
