Ruger LC9 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

I was a little reluctant about buying the ShapeShift Starter Kit, but after receiving it and trying it out I have found that I really like how easy and comfortable it is. I will buy again as I purchase new weapons in the future.

Best holster I have so far by ALEX on 04/28/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I am coming from a full kydex IWB currently from another company. It was very nice and slim. I loved it but the issue I have is that it uses a metal clip and it has started rubbing holes through my shirts from riding in my truck. I got 2 of these. one for my FNH FNX9 and for my Springfield XDS 3.3 9. Both of these holsters have made me start carrying more confidently as it hugs much closer and with my large body the holster hugs beautifully against my back. I will recommend these holsters to most of my friends. some people that are lightly smaller may have issues with how wide the back pad is but other than that this is a fantastic holster. I gave it 4 stars on quality as one of the holsters I got has some sticky substance on the back pad where it contacts my back. in summary great holsters for the normal or larger size persons. super comfortable!

Not compatible with Crimson Trace lasers by Michael on 04/28/2018
S&W M&P Shield 2.0 9mm ShapeShift Ankle Holster

I was excited to finally receive my new ankle holster for my S&W M&P Shield M2.0 9mm only to realize upon inspection that the holster is not compatible with the pistols that have the Crimson Trace Laser. It looks like it is constructed well, but I'll have to wait and see if they have one that actually fits my pistol.

Deceiving but in a good way by Rob on 04/27/2018
ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

So I have been on the fence about getting one because I thought thought it was overly bulky looking. I was wrong the pictures are receiving it is much more slim line than it appears. It is amazingly comfortable and well made. Plus with the all the extras that come with it you can carry anyway you want

Great service and shipping by Richard on 04/27/2018

Excellent holster, excellent value by Tom on 04/26/2018
Glock - 43 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

I am new to the concealed carry world. The ShapeShift 4.0 IWB was the second holster I purchased for my Glock 43. The first holster was from another well known company. It was all-Kydex and well-made but I just couldn't get a comfortable fit. This ShapeShift, on the other hand, feels amazing. Actually, I guess it would be more accurate to say it doesn't feel like much. No poking, no hot spots, nothing to irritate you over time. One of the selling points is that the shell connects to the neoprene in only one spot, allowing the neoprene to better conform. I worried that this meant the butt of my pistol might protrude more but it tucks in close to the body perfectly. The first time I wore it all day my wife had no idea I had it on until I asked her about it in the evening. I'd been wearing it for 12 hours! I can't recommend it highly enough. Really well done and well priced to boot.

Best holster I've used by Druder on 04/26/2018
Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

I reviewed the OWB holster which I had some reservations about but this holster is a different story. It's comfortable, thin, and you can modify it to suit you perfectly. I like a good cant when I'm carrying and found the perfect combo of settings to get it where I want. If I had to nitpick it would be that you have to adjust retention to the different shell setups and also that attaching the shell on the top side of the gun leaves the butt end free to stick out more than another design would allow. I with they would add a claw to the retention adjuster to pull the grip in closer to your body. With those improvements this holster would be absolutely perfect but it's already so close that it doesn't matter.

Great holster with small flaws by Druder on 04/26/2018
Alien Gear ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster

I got this expansion because I like having a holster for the range besides my IWB. The first thing I did was remove the thumb paddle, which I found would bend easier than it would engage. I played with it for quite a bit and learned that downward pressure on the gun made things easier but it just doesn't suit my needs. The glaring flaw is the belt catch on the paddle which IMO is way bigger than it needs to be. It's over engineered to the max and doesn't fit comfortably onto your waistline. I would prefer a grippier material to this solution and I may modify it myself. If I weren't handy I would most likely use the belt loop exclusively and throw the paddle into the holster drawer with the rest of the rejects but I have faith I can improve upon it.

Alien Gear 4.0 IWB: Part of Great Package by Wisconsin Will on 04/25/2018
Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

I bought an Alien Gear Starter Kit for my Glock 43. Working with it and experimenting to find the best concealed carry fits takes time. I have never been an IWB guy; just grossly uncomfortable and in-usable. Then I bought the Alien Gear Starter Kit and at the same time got turned on to the 5.11 Apex pants. Wow, what a game changer that combination has become! I am a 34 waist and bought a 36 waist Apex pants. I can't believe how I have come to really enjoy that Alien Gear 4.0 IWB holster now! I Love it! It took some trial and error but I found that sweet spot at the 2:30 position with enough forward cant so the guns muzzle should clear my right thigh. Set with the top of the holster at pant line, the holster just about disappears! The gun is pulled tight to my body and a nice oversized 2 XL tee shirt untucked and the gun disappears too! I ordered the extra belt loop set from Alien Gear and use the slide through belt loops; just very secure. In summary, finding that perfect IWB carry combination takes some time. A high quality pants sized about 2" over your normal is critical as is a high quality and comfortable IWB holster. I have found that with the Alien Gear 4.0 IWB holster. I look forward to further experimenting with the rest of the Alien Gear Starter Kit as well as with the double magazine pouch and with the ankle holster expansion pack I also bought! Thanks Alien Gear for your ongoing Research and Creativity and for a Great IWB holster!

Great mag carrier!! by Chris on 04/25/2018
Single Cloak Mag Carrier

Just received this today and I can't believe how comfortable it is. Iwb or owb, it will definitely be dependable for carrying an extra mag. Love the carrying options that it provides. I got it for my sd9ve but it fits my SCCY cpx2 mag also. So two for one ain't a bad deal. I think the price could be a little more inexpensive. But I'm very satisfied with it. I plan to order more from aliengear! Thanks!

AWESOME !!! by GunnyE9 on 04/25/2018
Single Cloak Mag Carrier

Just received the IWB/OWB Single Cloak Mag Carrier. What an awesome, well made & thought out product. Next on my list is the Double Cloak Mag Carrier and maybe a holster ... or two.

Great step up! by Buckster on 04/25/2018
S&W J Frame 2 inch Barrel Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I purchased the base model IWB for revolvers a while ago and thought after reading the product details the 3.0 would be a better option. I just got my new 3.0 holster and I was right-what an upgrade. The base model does not hold nearly as securely as this new 3.0. Wow! What a difference in comfort and in retention. The padded back with the "no screws" approach are really worth the added cost. This model, set on the middle height screws, disappears in the waistband. The overall fit, with the stiff backing plate and the "alien skin" interior, makes carrying better with less thought about the revolver dropping out if you have to run. I am very pleased.

Great Option, WELL worth the cost! by Jason on 04/25/2018
ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

I have been carrying my Springfield Armory XDs 9mm in the Shapeshift IWB for a little over two months now. I like the flexibility that it provides if I wanted to switch between IWB, OWB, or Appendix Carry. I find appendix to be uncomfortable, and OWB isn't a reality in the great state of New York. So IWB it is. I purchased mine with an extra shell to allow for a night stand/bed mount, without having to swap my shell off my EDC holster. I would recommend anyone purchasing this to spend the extra $30 as well. It terms of comfort, it is top notch. The combination of the holster and the gun barely registers (depending on the pants worn), and with a good belt the weight almost disappears. having flexible retention will satisfy those who want more that one level, and the adjustable cant provides multiple ways to carry your firearm to get it "just right". Last piece of my review is that the draw is smooth, and having the dual side full trigger guards makes carrying a striker fire with a round chambered a little more secure. Great holster, excellent value, well worth the price!

Best Decision I've Made by JR on 04/24/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

A friend of mine had told me about Alien Gear and I figured I would look into it. I saw their Cloaktuck 3.5 and figured it was a good deal. I called in to place the order and spoke with Kristen in their Customer Service department. She did an amazing job at making sure I was ordering what I wanted, and confirmed everything with me to make sure the order was completed correctly. She was very polite and knowledgable. On top of that, I informed her that I was in the military, and she told me that for military they DO NOT give discounts. They DO however put your order at the top of the list for the next holsters to be sent out. She also let me know that she would put a sticky note on her computer and then she would double check to make sure the order was being taken care of. She told me the order should get to me within 1-2 weeks if I remember correctly. But, much to my delight, I received an e-mail 4 hours later saying that the package had shipped, and two days later the package arrived with my holster. It came with a tool to adjust the screws, as well as extra screws. On the phone call with Kristen, she explained that the screws tend to back out on you, but that if you put locktite or clear nail polish on the screws, it should keep them it. This is a downfall to how customizable the holster is, but it has an easy fix. And Kristen was completely up front and honest with me on the problem. The holsers have mutliple ways to adjust to fit the individual carriers preference. Including how tight the holster holds the firearm, and the angle the weapon will sit, as well as how high or low on your waistband you want it. Plus there is the quality guarantee that Alien Gear has that they will fix any problem that comes up without any hassle. Another huge selling point for me. 5 out of 5 stars for exceptional customer service by Kristen, a very high quality holster at a reasonable price, as well as a very speedy delivery. I couldn't be more impressed with what I've seen here, and will definitely be coming back for future holsters for both myself, and my spouse, as well as recommending them to friends.

i loved it!! by yoshie on 04/24/2018
Glock - 19 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

At first when i start wearing it the back pad fabric kinda irritates my skin, but i got used to it. So comfortable, i could barely notice it.

Absolutely love it by Walter on 04/24/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Mod OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

Tried a few different brands and this was by far the best. Extremely comfortable and it securely holds my weapon. Using it with the dash mount is easy and makes it the perfect all around setup. Great job alien gear!

Awesome by Jay clappa on 04/23/2018
S&W SD9 VE Cloak Slide OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

Just got mine today. This holster is alot nicer than I thought it would be. Put it on and OMG is it comfortable compared to both my other holsters. Rides high and tight. Awesome holster. Im super glad I went with it. Also I bought it without knowing about the free shells or the warranty. So thats a huge plus as well. Very pleased with my purchase

Unable to draw unless grab rear sight w thumb. by Panama on 04/22/2018
Colt - 1911 5 Inch Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I traded your 1911 shell for same that accepted a crimson trace laser. Fit not the greatest and I am unable to draw from IWB unless I grab it by the rear sight w my thumb. Totally unable to draw just by grabbing grip. I tried raising the shell higher, no better. Any suggestions?

Perfect Except... by Tyler on 04/22/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

Summary: This holster would easily be a 5/5 if my kydex did not crack. This is great holster for the money, and just a great holster period! Pros Feels quality right out of the box. The clips seem very sturdy, and the quick detach redesign is a welcome improvement over previous models. Backing is very comfortable, well ventilated, and moisture resistant. It will be my primary holster once it gets hotter. The metal reinforced backing and alien skin seem very durable and make for a consistent (and safe) draw, Unfortunately the fit isn't prefect for me now because of an issue with the kydex, but I am excited to get this rig perfected. Cons: They tell you about the 3-4 week expected wait time after you place an order, which is a bit dishonest in my opinion. The biggest issue for me is the Kydex shell cracked at the bottom of the trigger guard because it was too tight against the gun. Looks like there' an improper fit from the mold. The crack happened when I first holstered my gun, and disappointingly I will have to send it back for return after being excited it arrived. Lastly, I'd like to have the option to carry even lower. My clips are at the highest position so it rides as low as possible, but I like the grip of my gun practically against the top of my belt. There's also no option to add more cant at the highest setting, which I would also prefer. Possible solution would be to offer extended length belt clips?

I did have to wait for this to arrive but the company explained why.... and it is the most comfortable way to carry protection without worrying about it... I have the IWB for this platform also... love them!!

Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

The 3.5 for the HKVP9SK is a perfect fit. This is a heavy, chunky gun and the 3.5 makes concealment a breeze with few adjustments. Not to mention it's comfortable. Really comfortable.

Great holster, great price! by Jeremy on 04/20/2018
CZ-75B - Full Size Cloak Mod OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

I run a CZ-75 in this holster for IDPA SSP class. The paddle attachment is very comfortable and keeps the gun right next to my side, doesn't allow it to hang off the side like a lot of OWB holsters do with a heavier gun. I have not had 1 issue with this holster since i got it, and i use it almost every day. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a OWB holster.

Great Conceal by Sam on 04/20/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

Just received this holster for my FNS-9c, and she works great. I'm a tall, fairly thin guy and wear my clothing a little tighter, and right now with some shorts and a slim tank top, I am not printing at all wearing at about the 430. The FNS is a pretty fat little gun, and the 12 round magazine with the pinky extender was a bit of a concern for me initially. But with the proper cant and depth, this holster hides it very well. Also very comfortable against the skin. Would highly recommend.

IMPECCABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! by John on 04/20/2018
S&W Bodyguard .380 Auto w/ Integrated Laser Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

This was my second purchase of IWB Holster from here. The first 4.0 IWB holster I purchased for my other gun, was excellent. So I went ahead and purchased this one. Receiving the package, my gun did not fit snug in the shell. I contacted customer service, and the lady I spoke to was extremely pleasant. They remedied my problem asap, and I had no more issues. I HIGHLY recommend these holsters!!! They are the most comfortable, well built, and the best IWB holsters I have ever used.

best OWB ever by Jim on 04/20/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Slide OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

I've worn concealed carry most of my adult life. Lots of different guns, lots of different ways. This OWB holster is by far, the most comfortable I've ever worn. And for the price? Oh my, it's a slam dunk. Highly recommend.

Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

This newest evolution of Alien Gear (ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster) is the best. I don't see how they will improve on their latest. But, I'm sure they will find some way to get it done, Yes, it's worth the money. I just wish I'd bought the starter kit. But I HAD TO try it out first and my funds are limited. Just buy the ShapeShift starter kit most likely it'll be a 30-35% price increase. You'll spend a lot more trying to build your own "starter kit".

Cloack-Tuck 3.0 Review by Wes on 04/20/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I bought the Cloak-Tuck 3.0 a few months ago. Overall I think it is a pretty good holster. It fits well and is comfortable. The single biggest problem is that the screws on the Kydex and the belt hooks keep coming out. This isn't a huge issue if you don't mind re-assembling your holster a couple of times a week. When I contacted Alien Gear for some support the solution wasn't to try and address why the screws keep coming out but to tell me to glue them in. I didn't find that a very satisfying solution. Since it appears this is a known issue they tried to address when they did the updated version you would think a better response could be had. Other than that, it's been a great holster.

ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

Now at first I was skeptical but I tried out today and the comfort and quality of this product is the best. Mostly love being able to change to different positions and the softer plastic than kydex. It fits like a glove and stays where its needed. With out a doubt I will purchase more products and have become a life long customer. Ordered mine and received 5 days later, but this one guys. U cannot go wrong and will love this holster. Thanks Alien Gear

Bersa Thunder 9 UC Pro Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I've had my cloak tuck 3.0 for almost a year now and I wouldn't trade it for any other holster on the market. It's still in the same condition as the day it arrived. It's so comfortable I can't even tell I'm wearing it, and it fits my weapon perfectly. In fact, I've just purchased another one for my other weapon and will probably be getting a third soon.

Great product for everyday carry by Parrish on 04/19/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I am a full time student and I live in a state where concealed carry is legal on College Campuses and this holster has proven to be extremely comfort and great at concealing my firearm. I carry a Ruger American Compact and I will honestly forget that I am even carrying. The holster is designed be adjusted at a moments notice so you can change the retention on your firearm. There is no other company I would get a holster from. They have customer satisfaction at the forefront of their business. They provide spare pieces for your holster and the tools you need for adjustment. For the money you are paying you are getting a great product. I have owned mine for about six months and there is little wear and tear other than scratches.

Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster Base for Semi-Automatics

This company should be a model for the rest of the companies in the US. Employees are very knowledgeable and can not do enough for you. Naturally the product are better than outstanding. Just got the 3.5 holster bases and are they great. A vast improvement over the 3.0. Shipping was so fast that I could not believe it that they were in my mailbox so soon. Please Aliengear keep up the great work!

Standard Clips

Just received my replacement clips and Cloak Tuck 2.0 IWB base. Most outfits you deal with would have called what I experienced with my holster as normal wear and tear and not replaced them. Every Alien I had contact with was great and their shipping was done very quick as well I give them a 6 out of 5.

Standard Clips

Received a Cloak Tuck holster as a gift quite some time ago. Recently lost one of the belt clips. I didn't have an issue paying for a replacement, but flat rate shipping was twice as much as the clips. I called customer service to see if maybe they could discount shipping or something. They did even better! They sent out replacement clips with a hardware kit free of charge! Call was made on Saturday evening, received the package on Wednesday. I couldn't believe it. Outstanding customer service paired with their excellent holsters! They definitely earned a new customer!!!

Great OWB Holster by Wes on 04/18/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Slide OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

I purchased the Cloak-Slide OWB holster several months ago and I have found it to be an extremely comfortable and durable holster. It fits well, and carries the weight of the gun very well. It sits at the perfect spot for a quick draw, and rides very comfortably. It is my favorite holster so far. Sometimes I even change my clothes so I can wear OWB due to the comfort of this holster over IWB. The only issue I have had is with the hardware. The screws that hold the kydex shell to the base unit have come out on a few occasions. It is a bit of a hassle to put your holster back together a couple of times a week. This issue is also less common with this holster than it was with my Cloak-Tuck 3.0.

Nice Holster - Only 1 Issue by Wes on 04/18/2018
Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I've enjoyed my Cloak-Tuck 3.0. I've been wearing it daily and it bears the weight of my full size Walther very well. It is comfortable and very discreet. The gun fits well into the kydex shell and is easy to remove and re-holster. I always feel that my pistol is secure and have no worries about accidental discharges or other issues because the shell covers the handgun so well. The only issue I have had is with the hardware. Usually a couple of times a week the hardware pops out or off no matter how carefully I put it on and take it off. It's a little tiring having to put it back together a couple of times a week.

Very well made and comfortable. I like that I have the option to adjust tension with the included hardware. I wish that I would have ordered a mag carrier at the same time as I could have saved $6. Oh well, just another reason to buy another gun and get another Alien Gear setup.

I just wanted to say great product. I finally got in the mail after a month of had it ordered but when I contacted them to check what was going on the staff was very friendly and helpful. As soon as I got it in I put it on, fit and felt great. I carry a ruger sr1911 45 with a 5 inch barrel and it was very comfortable. I do recommend the alien gear holster. Trying to talk my wife into getting her one. Thank you for the great holster. I am very satisfied with it.

Great Holster by Satty on 04/17/2018
Sig P320 Full Size 9mm/40cal Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

I carry everyday. Despite owning a few compact/subcompact handguns, I prefer to carry a full size P320 because I am more confident in my accuracy with it. I live in a city where carrying is legal, but a lot of people are anti-gun, so I was looking for an IWB full-conceal option. I was skeptical about being able to carry a full-size handgun inside my belt, but gave this holster a try. Especially with a larger pistol, the ability to adjust the height of the clips and the cant (tilt) of the holster is helpful to find comfort. The Tuck 3.0 is capable of both adjustments. The holster broke in quickly, and several months later, it holds the shape of my hip. Seems like it will last a long time. When you consider that similar holsters by other brands can cost $20-30 more, this is a no- brainer.

We all know of AG fantastic products, however I want to give PROPS to their customer service. I very recently exchanged shells on my 3.0. cloak and less than a week I received a new shell for a different gun, no questions at all. Not only are their products 5 star, but the entire team/company 5 STAR. THANKS.

ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

I purchased the shape-shifting starter kit. I'm highly pleased with the kit. I carry IWB all the time. I've had other IWB holsters that were satisfactory and uncomfortable a times. The Shapeshifter, is the last one I'll buy. Very comfortable to wear. The nicest thing about the starter kit, it allows me to wear OWB with the slide or paddle, or appendix. AlienGear, thank you for a comfortable holster.
