Glock - 19 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

Glock 19 Modular Holster Kit


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.
There may be no more versatile handgun than the Glock 19...but not too many Glock 19 holsters deliver the same versatility. It's a wildly popular gun good for concealed carry and open carry. However, for both purposes, you'd need at least two holsters.

Until now.

The ShapeShift holster by Alien Gear is no mere holster - it's a complete carry system. If you carry your pistol in more than one manner, which the Glock 19 is very well suited to, then this Glock 19 carry holster system is definitely suited to your purposes.

We spent two years designing the ShapeShift, with an eye on durability, security and modularity. The core of the ShapeShift is the injection-molded shells, made from a hyper-durable polymer that is nearly indestructible in the course of normal wear. There are two half-shells - left and right - and two trigger guards, one set up for standard half-shell carry and the other pre-setup for belt slide carry.

The shells - of either size - lock together without tools, using a friction-locking rail and a twist lock to close together. Once fastened, they won't come part.

Along with the shells, we also include two backing pads - one large and one small - and three different belt attachments. For use with the backing pads, lock one full shell together and one of the half shells, then use the locking rail to attach to the backer.

From there, it's up to you to choose how you wish to carry.

If a traditional Glock 19 IWB holster is to your liking, attach a full shell and half shell and mount to the larger backer. The backers are made from the same materials as our Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB holster, so those who have carried one before will recognize it immediately. Just like the 3.0, the belt clips are fully adjustable for ride height and grip cant.

However, you can attach the same shell configuration to the smaller backer and use the larger belt clip to assemble a Glock 19 appendix carry holster, for those who prefer to carry IWB in this position.

The 19 also happens to be well suited to outside the waistband concealment, and the smaller backer can be used as a hybrid OWB by attaching the belt slide clips. This will ride high and tight to the body in utter comfort, in case you prefer a Glock 19 OWB holster that's easily concealed under an untucked shirt or light outerwear.

For open carry, woods carry or use at the range, you can also assemble both clam shells and insert the paddle attachment, giving you a Glock 19 paddle holster as well.

Besides the varied configurations, adjustable retention is also built into the ShapeShift. There are three included retention bars for use with the trigger guard shells, giving the wearer light, medium or heavy passive retention. We also include a thumb release and finger lock, which can be deployed in the paddle configuration to give you close to Level III retention.

Along with the outstanding range of use, you also get Alien Gear's Iron Clad Guarantee, which includes both a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period - during which you can return the holster for a refund if unsatisfied - and a lifetime warranty. Should anything go wrong with the holster, we will fix any issue or replace the holster outright regardless of how the issue arose for as long as you own it.

This could be the last holster that you ever need. Are you ready for a whole new form of carry?

Pretty disappointed so far... Review by Soren

As much as I love alien gear, I have to say I'm not incredibly impressed with the shapeshift system. I was running a cloak tuck 3.0 for a Glock 21. But I bought a Glock 19 and decided to try the new holster system. It's not nearly as comfortable in any setup I've tried. The appendix carry is pretty comfortable, but it prints way too much. There's no "claw" to push the gun back against the body, making the gun print very noticeable. If they made a trigger guard piece with a claw, I think this could fix the problem nicely. With the IWB, the plastic at the top of the trigger guard digs into my back when sitting in a seat. Not the comfort I'd expect from alien gear. The last gen IWB holster was so comfortable that I could sleep with my full sized 45 on. And OWB slide sticks out waaaay too far, not to mention it flops outward, again making the rig print badly. (This may be an issue of my anatomy, but it just seems like the fulcrum at which the gun hangs is much too low. It seems to make the gun top-heavy). Regardless, after having spent the amount of money that I did for the kit, I'm pretty disappointed. I love alien gear, and have for years. However I'm seriously considering returning my starter kit and switching to either the previous gen IWB holster for my new gun, or switching to a better appendix holster system. I understand that this concept is still rather new, and needs some bugs worked out, but at this point I have a strong feeling I will be returning my starter kit. (Posted on 7/5/2018)
Great holster for IWB, the rest is pretty good Review by Steven

I love this holster overall. If I had only got the IWB I would have been just as happy as with all the rest. The owb holsters are ok but I don't really use that method so no criticism but not my favorite. They do what they are meant to do perfectly though. I was more interested in IWB and appendix and it was worth it for the whole package to me. I am not a huge fan of this appendix set up just because of the clip. It prints too much with the clip in the front but if Alien gear is listening, put a clip off to the side and it would be better in my professional opinion. The IWB is insanely comfortable and to me is worth the 112 alone. It is the most comfortable and breathable holster I have ever owned. That's saying something too considering its 95 degree just about every day and I still wear it when I'm outside going about my day. Overall great product if your using all of them. If they fix the appendix clip I would probably use that setup a little more. Really looking forward to getting the shoulder setup but probably gunna wait till winter when its a Little nicer for jacket weather. (Posted on 6/22/2018)
NONE BETTER ANYWHERE ANYWARE ANY HOW Review by Mark

This is my third alien gear rig and this time I purchased the Shape Shifter Starter kit. It is by far the BEST VALUE, MOST VERSATILE HOLSTER SET ANY WHERE. VERY COMFORTABLE AND HOLDS THE FIREARM SECURELY, SAFELY AND AN EASY DRAW. My wife and I have spent thousands on holsters over the years and none can compare to the ALIEN GEARS HOLSTER SETUPS!!! Now if your just not a fan of molded holsters than ok keep spending and spending and spending, and in your search if you don't get an alien gear your wasting your money. Just a FACT. I spent a lot on so called custom holsters from manufactures that still perform like CR@P and now the ALIEN GEAR I have for the same Firearm is better and more comfortable and half the price, so don't look anywhere but here and you won't be disappointed. REALLY!!! (Posted on 5/29/2018)

Outstanding holster in all respects Review by Chris

I received my holster two weeks ago and immediately started configuring it for Appendix Carry,. I found the video more helpful than the printed instructions because the images were too small.

I started carrying concealed the next day. I carry a Glock 19 and can conceal it even with a tucked dress shirt. Since my office building prohibits concealed carry, I'm getting really good at untucking and tucking when I secure my weapon in my car at work.

The fit to the weapon is perfect. The holster stays secure during the draw and I like the adjustable retention. This product is everything they promised. I am happy I chose this as my first concealed holster. (Posted on 3/21/2018)
Top Notch Review by Indymusick

I have had my Shapeshift kit for almost a month now. The IWB and appendix holster for my Glock 19 is super comfortable.

I would reccomend this kit to anyone looking. I will most likely never use the OWB but considering most of the holsters I priced out, it was not that much more expensive to get the kit.

I have already ordered a second shell so that I can leave it mounted in my car.

Thanks for making a great product, I will definitely order more as I add to my gun collection! (Posted on 3/20/2018)

This is the holster(s) Ive wanted for a lifetime. Finally, these Aliens figured out what we mortals want and need in the real world. Absolutely genius design. You will NOT be disappointed...alien or human. This is the real deal for real life.

Alien Gear - Shape Shift kicks ass, you need not worry about competitors. There are none. Keep the pedal to the metal.

Just one suggestion ; the dock only works with the OWB paddle configuration. If you could design an accessory to allow us to dock easily when configured for IWB and belt slide configurations that would be awesome. Regardless, you had me at hello. Alien holster is MY brand. Cant wait to see more shells available for other models. Specifically, I could use a Beretta Cheetah, and J/K frame Smith & Wesson's.

Throughout research on handguns, and holsters I made my first purchase of a Glock 19. The AlienGear ShapeShift popped up through research, and after watching several reviews, unboxings, etc., I decided to purchase locally. I could not be happier. Getting 4 holsters in one kit, is a phenomenal value. Changing between carry modes is very easy, and takes no time at all. My personal preference is with the IWB, and this is both comfortable, and phenomenal at concealment. Utilizing the IWB is great, however I would love to have an extra half shell so that I could also utilize the included mount in my vehicle for easier access in that situation shall it arise.
