    Perfect for even full sized guns by Austin on 08/18/2017
    H&K USP - Full Size Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I was a little apprehensive about getting an iwb holster for my full size USP 45 however this holster works amazing for it. The way that it sits on the belt in the back is very comfortable and I don't have to worry about printing. You also are able to work the safety and decocker as it is in the holster. I also bought a shell for my P2000 which fits perfectly on the base if I want to switch things around. I would recommend this to hk fans who are thinking about carrying their full size with them.

    S&W M&P40c Compact 3.5 inch barrel Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I've worn the original for the last 5 years. It has held up better then any other holster I have owned. I called customer service about any type of upgrade discount and they totally met all of my needs. You guys definitely have a life time customer. I will continue to recommend your holsters to everyone I know. Keep up the great work.

    A great holster system for a great price & great staff!! by mnrobitaille on 08/17/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    I picked up the ShapeShift Starter Pack yesterday, by going directly to the Alien Gear Holsters office in Post Falls, ID. As soon as I stepped in the front entrance all staff present made me feel like a family member. Have not had for 24 hours & have already done OWB Paddle & IWB 4.0 carry. The system works great with my Smith & Wesson M&P SHIELD .40.

    Nothing but great things to say. by Ty on 08/17/2017
    Taurus PT709 Slim Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Absolutely great quality- as other reviews state I actually forgot I had it on 10 minutes later. Unbeatable for the price and warranty. Already recommended this company to friends and family because of this.

    Durable, affordable, GYSOT! by BIG DADDY on 08/17/2017
    Alien Gear 2 Holster Combo

    I bought the combo pack, one for me and one for my pops. I use the 3, and it has held up to sliding around on the concrete working on cars, riding quads in the woods, and yet the concealment is so good, I can wear it to church under dress clothes, even when I am in the Pulpit. Secure, tough, and good concealment. The best part is, when I changed guns for EDC, I just ordered a new shell. I don't know of any other holster maker that offers this! What a great product, I can not say too much about it, Get You Some Of That!!

    AWESOME VALUE! by BIG DADDY on 08/17/2017
    Holster Clip Combo

    I had used the standard clips on my IWB 3 holster for over a year, but had decided to try something new. With this kit, you have a variety of options for every occasion! Very nice kit, and now I can change them up as the situation warrants, or even mix them up to give me the best in concealed carry and security! Very pleased, keep up the great work Alien Gear!

    Great Way to Start by StoltzT on 08/17/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    I am new to EDCing and did a lot of looking around, trying on some different holster styles with different guns. I found the gun I liked, Glock 26, then I just needed to find the holster and carry style that I liked the best. What I love about this is the style, comfort, and options. You really don't find to many holsters out there that give you the flexibility that this one does. Its pretty much 4 holsters in one, and for $100 its a deal that hard to find for the quality you get. Plus, if you purchase a different gun, all you need is a new shell and you are good to go! I cant wait to make this something apart of my day to day and look forward to finding out exactly what fits me. I would 100% recommend if you are new to this like I am and trying to find the fit that works for you.

    Awesome Holster from a great American Company by David on 08/17/2017
    Stoeger Cougar Cloak Mod OWB Holster (Outside the Waistband)

    I bought my Stoeger Cougar a few years ago, and fell in love with it. However, I searched high and low for a holster but almost no one makes a model specific holster for a Stoeger. I did buy a leather IWB and a universal OWB, but never found one that I really liked. A friend of mine walked in with an Alien Gear holster on his hip and I immediately like the look of it. I jumped on the site searched by gun, and to my amazement Alien Gear had the Cloak Mod OWB available for my Stoeger.. I purchased it that day, and it only took 5 days to arrive. I love every thing about it and don't think I will ever choose another holster from any other company.

    Great Product ! by Len on 08/17/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    We're in an age of disappointment with a lot of products. NOT SO with the Shapeshift. I love it. I've tried the belt slide and might wear it when winter gets here but for now I've worn the IWB. The only problem is I wish you had brought this kit out years ago. Len

    Most comfortable holster I've ever owned. by Lucas on 08/17/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    Let me start off by saying Ive never been built very big so it's difficult for me to find a holster that's not only comfortable but doesn't print. I live on a working farm as well as concealed carry every day so I mostly use a paddle holster on the farm and IWB everywhere else, so I own several top of the line holsters. With the shapshift it eliminated the need to entirely change my holster several times a day, with minimal time on the system I can switch between holsters in less than a minute. This is the most comfortable paddle I've ever used, it's low profile but secure and puts the weapon away from my body Enough to draw with a jacket and gloves without having to fiddle with my coat. I also love the ability to change to cant so it rides staight up and down when I'm in the truck allowing for easy access and not digging into my side or hip all day. The IBW sits comfortably and allowed total customization to my body as well as eliminated the sag and print caused by my other holsters. I'm also very excited to try the holster mount once I pick a spot. Will definitely be paring with the Alien Gear gun belt in a few weeks and very much looking forward too the upcoming expansion packs. I truly believe this is most likely the last everyday carry system I'll ever need.

    Awesome !!! by blackhorseveteran on 08/16/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Best bang for your buck out there. I just got my IWB for my Glock19, and it fit perfectly. The only adjustment I made was to cant the gun forward a little more....which was easy. Highly recommend. Other holsters of similar quality and comfort cost $30 more

    Just Awesome by Talmage on 08/16/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I have never found a ISW holster that feels so good as this holster. If the new 4.0 is better then this one it will feel like nothing being on you your hips I will try the new 4.0 because of the 30 day option they offer.

    Best IWB Ever by Brian on 08/16/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Bought my first Alien Gear Holster about 2.5yrs ago. I've been thru about 20-30 different holsters on the market and I can state without bias that the "Cloak Tuk 3.0" is by far the best I've ever owned. I previously had the version 2.0 and slap wore it out. The 3.0 is light years ahead of the older 2.0 model. Comfort, wearability, versatility, it's just an all around AWESOME holster to have as an EDC. Works well whether I'm wearing shorts, jeans, or dress clothes. Never owned anything as versatile as the 3.0. Can't wait for the "Shape Shift" to come out for the Beretta PX-4 Storm Full Size. If it's half as good, it'll be a great addition to an already awesome EDC rig. Thanks again for a great product and for doing it right here in the best country on the planet. U.S.A.

    Great holster! by ScruffyNerfherder on 08/15/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I have been wearing the cloak tuck 3.0 for 2 weeks now and it has been great. I am carrying a 1911 champion weighing in at just over 2lbs. The holster distributes the weight across my belt very well, and rides comfortably., After a little practice I am able to draw and re-holster comfortably. I recommend carrying in multiple spots and practice drawing (with an unloaded weapon of course). For me the best spot is at the 4:00 position but everyone is different. I will definitely recommend this holster to everyone that carries.

    Very nice ISW Holster by Rbo396 on 08/15/2017
    Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

    Good product but some thoughts by Jason on 08/15/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    I ordered the starter pack because I had a Cloak Tuck 3.0 that was the bomb. I wanted versatility in carry, especially for winter. The system takes a little while to figure out and it's not super quick to swap out components but it doesn't take forever. I like paddle and OWB options that click into place so you can remove the gun and holster as one unit. But it sticks way out from my side. Even with a stiff Hank's gun belt it still sagged a little with a small 9 mm Shield. I wish the whole holster system rode closer to the body, since in IL we are concealed carry only and this would stick out like sore thumb even under a heavy winter coat.

    Awesome holster system! by Steve on 08/14/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    This modular holster system is simply badass! I couldn't believe how much you get for the price. I can't wait to order more shells for all my handguns! The only thing I would add is to put a claw on the appendix holster that pushes the frame of the gun against you.

    Very comfortable by John on 08/14/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I haven't worn a inside the waistband holster in 20 years due to it being more uncomfortable as I get older. This holster is great. I can wear it all day.

    Great holster by AJ on 08/13/2017
    Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

    The new 4.0 is great. The holster is slimmer and smaller then the 3.0 but Alien gear just keeps coming out with better produces. I'm definitely a fan

    Great holster, but one star off for an oopsie... by Britt on 08/13/2017
    Springfield XDs 3.3 Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    This holster is great! I've purchased at least 500 dollars in holsters over the last year trying to find one that fits and I actually enjoy carrying, and this Alien Gear holster hits the mark in every way! I only marked off a star due to the fact that when it was first shipped to me the package did not even include the holster! It just awkwardly included the shell and that was it, no leather backing, but I made contact with Tom at customer service who quickly sent out a new holster which thankfully arrived intact.

    Fantastic & Well Worth the $$$ by Dillinger-63 on 08/13/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    I already owned a cloak tuck for my S&W Model 5906 9MM and 9mm M&P Shield Performance Center, but after watching videos on You Tube I knew I had to purchase one of the Shape Shifter kits. I was told it could take up to 10 days for shipping since they were in high demand. I was surprised when my order shipped just two days after placing the order. I am very pleased with the quality, what is included in the kit and over all performance and versatility of this holster. As other have said, it can be a bit overwhelming with what you get, so watch some videos. A+ Alien Gear for a fantastic combo holster kit. Hopefully, you will make one for my wife's S&W Bodyguard 380 with built in laser.

    Excellent holster by Alex on 08/12/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Received my first Alien Gear holster after wearing several different brands in the past. The IWB Cloak 3.0 is well worth the money and very comfortable. Amazing on how fast I received the holster; when inspecting the holster, I noticed my added J-Clips was not in the package. Emailing customer support, they had my missing clips in route the next day. Thank you for making an affordable, comfortable holster. Will be ordering a OWB soon.

    Buyer's remorse by Brian on 08/12/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Saw all the great reviews and made the leap. Wish I would have waited. Item arrived and doesn't feel right. Rides extremely stiff at 4 o'clock. FIgured I'd just get used to it. BUt then they revamped the whole thing with new line, shape shift. The metal plate in that one is a lot smaller. Too late to do anything about first purchase.

    Just awesome!!! by Allen on 08/11/2017

    You guys are the best! Love my shapeshift!! Outstanding quality and comfort! Fits perfect! Just as promised!

    Best holster I've had by Jon on 08/11/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    So I've been thru few holsters and to put it plain and simple this holster dominates all others, I'm a bigger guy and havin a holster that fits comfortably is important to me and honestly that wasn't easy to find, until I found alien gear holsters, I tried this holster on a whim... and it is by far the most comfortable holster I've ever tried, and i carry a full size s&w pistol. It is simply amazing.

    Loving this holster system!! by Gary on 08/11/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    Bought one of these for my Springfield XD mod2 compact chambered in 9mm. It fits the gun like a glove and the adjustable retention is super fast and easy to change. VERY comfortable to wear all day. I almost forget I even have my gun on me sometimes. I have only used this as IWB and slide OWB, but enjoy having the option to carry 2 other ways if I choose. Takes a little bit to figure out what pieces are needed for what carry option, but once you have swapped it over a couple times, it becomes much easier and faster. Anxiously awaiting the tactical leg carry option to be released. Also hoping to be able to buy other shells so I can also use this holster system on my XDm. Overall I am very glad I bought this and would buy it again! Gary

    Nice but not perfect by Michael on 08/11/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    By far one of the best holsters I have purchased. But with that said the alignment of the shell on the backing is off leaving the hammer and dove tail exposed instead of protected from touching the skin. If they could fix this one issue it would be amazing! Just got it today so I am going to start wearing it tomorrow and see how much the miss alignment is going to bother me. Hopefully it won't be to much of an issue.

    Top notch service by Kevin on 08/10/2017

    I wanted to swap my shell... I sent in the old one and they sent the one for my new gun...... perfect fit. No charge awesome ......

    Well built and extremely versatile by Peter on 08/10/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    This holster system is by far the best system out there and extremely versatile. I'm glad that I purchased this holster system instead of some of the others out there. I have an Alien Gear IWB 1.0 holster and I love it. When I started looking for something more than just a single purpose holster, I was shocked to find that the market doesn't have much out there to allow you to transition from one style to another besides the Shape Shift system. After opening the box, I must admit, I was like a kid in the candy store with all the different ways that I could holster my weapon and I just that. I configured the holster every possible way to test them all out. I am a bigger person and this holster fits great in all configurations. I am so glad that I purchased this and I couldn't ask for anything better.

    Great Holster by Mitch52301 on 08/10/2017
    1911 - 5 inch Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I have to admit, I've been searching and researching for a good IWB holster. I've found there are hundreds out there and all claim to be the best and most comfortable. However I reached out to 1911 .45 gun owners and asked them what is their go to IWB holster, and alien gear holsters kept popping up. So I took a chance and, wow!!! I'm very very impressed!! I'm kind of a big guy and I wanted an IWB holster that was comfortable, and would keep my gun from sticking in me. This holster did just that, even sitting down, which was the real test for me. I mean an IWB holster can be the most comfortable when standing, but sitting for me was the real test and it passed with flying colors. It took a few adjustments to get the cant and the height just right, but once I got it just right and found the sweet spot so to speak it was spot on. I'm glad I went with alien gear, and will definitely be buying other products they offer, it was a great deal, and a fantastic holster. I couldn't be happier!!!

    GOOD HOLSTER by BOBBY on 08/09/2017
    S&W SD40 VE Cloak Tuck IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Would definitely recommend this holster, told a buddy of mine to get one and just got his and loved it! Ordered my shapeshifter my for taurus PT111 G2, should be here in a few days!

    Free Shell Swaps is a Bonus by nixonda on 08/09/2017
    Finished Shell for Semi-Automatics

    I recently bought a Ruger American Pistol, and retired my 1911. I submitted a shell swap form last week as part of Alien Gear's Free Shell Trades for Life guarantee. I got my replacement shell today, and it fits perfectly. The replacement was so precise that I could see the pistol engraving imprinted into the shell as part of their manufacturing process. Thanks Alien Gear!

    Very comfortable by Johnny on 08/08/2017

    Couldn't be happier. by Tyler on 08/08/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    I received my holster a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I carry IWB on a daily basis with my job and could tell right away how much more comfortable and concealable this holster was, than my previous holsters. It only took me an hour of playing with the holsters to be able to switch them out efficiently. I had one minor issue with my thump release catching, however after a quick online chat with Tyler W. I was shipped a new release. I have never experienced such great customer service with any other company (not just firearms related companies). I love all the different ways to carry and regerally switch them depending on what I'm wearing for the day and if I'm on/off duty. 5 stars.

    Convientiant, simple, amazing by Jeremy on 08/08/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    Four ways to carry each gun with no tools needed to change your carry method?!?! I absolutely love this holster system! Simple, intuitive, and COMFORTABLE, I just can't say enough. And, all of this for the price of one custom holster. The only thing close to negative I have to say is, "Hurry up with the shells for rest of my collection!" My H&Ks and Sigs need new homes. I recommend Alien Gear to anyone and everyone who asks me what holster they need to get. Also, if you haven't tried the mag carriers, you're missing out. Great job guys. Keep up the good work.

    Best Holster on the market! by JLo on 08/08/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    Hands down the best and most comfortable holster on the market today! No break in time, perfect fit on weapon. Love most of all doesn't leave any "holster wear" marks you get from limitation holsters! 10 stars!!

    The perfect IWB holster is here! by Scott on 08/08/2017
    1911 - 4.25 inch Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    This is by far the most comfortable IWB holster I have ever worn,and trust me I have been carrying for 30 years. I prefer my weapon in the 3-4 o'clock position and this holster rides there perfectly, and has molded to my hip like it was custom made just for me. As usual Alien Gear has done it again. They are now the holsters I use exclusively. I only wish they made a drop leg tactical rig !

    Comfortable, Great Concealment, Great Holster by Andy on 08/08/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I am a bigger bodied person and most IWB holsters that I have tried do not fit well and are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. I was skeptical about the Alien Cloak Tuck Holster 3.0.When it arrived I put it on according to the instructions and cannot believe what a great holster this is. I can wear this holster all day long while doing my job and I don't even know it is there. It's conceal capabilities are excellent. I wear mine at the four o'clock position and it conforms to my bodies contour very well. This is a GREAT HOLSTER! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy an IWB holster.

    Quality and comfort!! by Allen on 08/07/2017

    Glock 43 cloak tuck 3.0 by Evin on 08/07/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I've owned the cloak tuck 3.0 iwb for over a year now. It is very comfortable and has held up very well. I added some locktite to the screws and they haven't loosed at all. Very great product I will be a returning customer and refer it to all my gun buddies.

    Most is awesome, some not so much by Jason on 08/07/2017
    ShapeShift Starter Kit

    All of the half shell configurations are awesome. 5 stars if that's all I was reviewing. The full shell configurations tend to sit too far out from the body. I actually hit it on a door frame earlier. I got the comfort belt slide and even though I wear a heavy blackhawk gun belt it still sags some. The paddle is better, doesn't sag but still sticks out. The worst part by far is the thumb break for what that's worth. It sits too far low, I can't disengage it without losing a good firing grip on my gun. It is incredibly tight and uneven throughout and has to be pushed really hard to get the gun out, even if the regular retention is loose all of the way. I hate the fact that most of what I had to say was negative because what this holster offers is amazing. I would recommend it but my recommendation would be to either wait until the system comes as the IWB 4.0 or appendix or whatever form you want or buy it wit only those in mind. OWB with the backer, IWB and appendix carry are amazing configurations. If you want a shell holster with retention for open carry I'd look elsewhere.

    Fantastic by Jiri on 08/07/2017

    ShapeShift I highly recommend. As well as the quality and the willingness of the customer center.

    These are the best holsters that I have ever owned,I highly recommend them to anyone I meet that carries. by Brad on 08/06/2017
    Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster (Inside the Waistband)

    I have tried a number of holsters,as most people who carry often do. I have a box of holsters sitting around that just didn't work out for one reason or another...these are THE most comfortable holsters I have ever owned. The price is great and the quality is great as well. Sure,you CAN spend a lot more money on a holster,but why would you when you can get the best of everything with these? I love mine and highly recommend them to anyone I meet who carries.
