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.

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Best AIWB I've Found Review by Scott
Quality

I have a drawer full of holsters that are just uncomfortable.. I prefer to appendix carry and I couldn't find one that fit my body type, and was all day comfortable. I looked at the Shapeshift AIWB when it first came out and I thought it looked too bulky.

I finally pulled the trigger after the last Kydex I bought, kept digging into my leg when I was seated. I'm sorry, I waited. All day comfort, standing or sitting. It's not too bulky and it fits my S&W Shield like a glove. I could not be more pleased and if you prefer to appendix carry, you have to try one. (Posted on 8/24/2018)
Only one problem Review by Michael

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)
Rumors of bulk are greatly exaggerated Review by Jay1975

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.
