    Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

    $55.88
    Ordinary concealed carry holsters are uncomfortable. Leather-based inside the waistband (IWB) holsters take time to break in, then over time they break down. The all-new ShapeShift IWB Holster is designed to provide you with the highest level of concealed comfort on the planet.

    This revolutionary IWB holster is fully compatible with our entire ShapeShift system, allowing you to effortlessly shift from one carry method to the next using interchangeable parts (available in the ShapeShift Starter Kit found here). Go from classic IWB to appendix, or transfer the holster shell into an OWB slide in seconds. The choice is yours!

    To improve on the award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0, the ShapeShift IWB Holster is designed with a single mounting point, allowing the holster base to flex and conform to your side. This, combined with an all-new layer of breathable neoprene, will deliver the highest level of comfort for concealed carriers. But we didn’t stop at comfort.

    This groundbreaking IWB holster has also been slimmed down and minimized to provide optimal concealability, even more than the Cloak Tuck 3.0.

    Comfort and concealment means nothing without safety. That’s why the ShapeShift shell is designed to cover the trigger guard in every carry configuration. This thoughtful feature protects the trigger from involuntary movement, making it safer and more secure than ever.

    The more customizable, the better. Keeping this mantra in mind, the ShapeShift IWB Holster offers adjustable cant and ride height. Alien Gear Holsters made this possible with the invention of their unique, tool-less inside the waistband holster clips.

    These clips remove the need for tools, eliminate the problem of loose screws and simplify the entire process of modifying cant and ride height. They also enhance the comfort of the holster, as the hardware no longer extends through the back. The neoprene base of the holster is now smooth and uninterrupted.

    The American-made ShapeShift Inside the Waistband Holster is proudly backed by a Forever Warranty and a 30-Day Test Drive. If anything breaks on your patent pending holster, we’ll repair or replace it for free. No questions asked.

    Just received my new 4.0. Love it! Just ordered the j clips that I prefer for the ease of removing from the belt. Am anxious to wear this system. Wanted something for all day comfort. I believe this is what I needed. Thanks Alien Gear. (Posted on 10/22/2017)

    I have always shied away from this type of holster because I really didn’t think it would be comfortable and concealable. Wow, was I wrong. This holster is super sweet. It really pulls your firearm in nice and tight against your body and is super comfy. I bought this holster for my Glock 19 but, now I want another for my Sig P320 but, unfortunately Alien Gear doesn't make one for that gun yet. “Bummer”. I’ll wait but you better hurry Alien Gear, I won’t wait indefinitely. (Posted on 10/20/2017)
    10/10. Real everyday carrier Review by Cmack
    Quality

    Very pleased. Been carrying for about a month now. Can hardly tell it's there. Can't use it with pants that are normally pretty tight since it adds an extra inch or so. Easy to adjust for comfort. Couldn't be happier. Kinda hard to take off until you get used to it but that's kinda reassuring that it's not gonna fall off in everyday movement. Wished I would have spent the extra fourty bucks and got the starter kit. 10/10 for me. Love the trigger safety on both sides. Will do future business. (Posted on 10/18/2017)

    This Holster is incredibly awesome! I opted in for the additional clips - wanted that O clip so the belt went through and secured to body. the Standard clips it comes with are BEAST no worries if if you don't opt in for the additional clips.

    My downside was the Thumb release I took it off the other half shell it came with and put it on the half shelf that was already assembled to the shell of body and no matter how I mount the Shell angle wise the Thumb Release is very Uncomfortable and hard to press IWB carry for that Extra safety of keeping gun on you.

    That being said I removed it and put back to original state it came in and tightened the tension that holds the gun and it works amazing. very loose if I wish or Snug and ripping my pants into a weddgy to pull this thing out Love it! " mines now adjusted right in the middle :) Very Comfortable when wearing as well.

    Don't Skimp out on your holster's yall! (Posted on 10/16/2017)

    I don't do this evalutation stuff. I ordrerd the 4.0 IWB holster for my Glock 26 several months ago. I have worn it nearly every day since receiving it. I can not tell you how comfortable it is. Often times I forget I'm wearing it and have to reach to my 4:00 position to see if it's there. I depend on its consistancy of securing my pistol whenever I return it to the holster. Everythig is adjustable. How deep do I carry it in my waist, how much is it canted forward or backward, how tightly the holster grips my pistol. I can carry it totally concealed. My shirt tucks inbetween my belt and holster to make it TOTALLY concealed. It is light,., concealed and secure. I am new at this concealed carry and TOTALLY delighted with the way it feels and how undectable my pistol is. Alien Gear has done a wonderful job in creating the most hidden and comfortable holster I have EVER seen. Excellent Job. Please keep up the great work. (Posted on 10/13/2017)

    I own the 3.0 and love it. Just got the 4.0 for my glock 43. Been wearing it for two weeks and it is super light and comfy! Didn't think it could get better than the 3.0, but I was wrong! You won't find any iwb holsters more comfortable than these! Great service and great quality holsters! Kudos to Alien Gear! (Posted on 10/13/2017)

    I have worn my Cloak Tuck 3.0 every day for a year, from the time I get up until the time that I go to bed. I have always been amazed at ho comfortable it is...until now. Today, I got my new Shape Shift 4.0 IWB instantly, I am in love with it. I didn't think you could make one more comfortable and you did! The smaller backing and single point holster attachment are astounding! The beginning of next month I get a new more compact gun and already have the Shape Shift Starter Kit in the plan with it. And when is the Shoulder rig coming out? A quick change from an OWB to shoulder for driving is very appealing to me. AND, I have already decided to get more holster mounts for various rooms in the house and vehicle (just makes sense, lol) If you have not tried Alien Gear yet, what are you waiting on? Carrying a weapon need not be uncomfortable or painful. (Posted on 10/12/2017)
    Best IWB Holster that I have ever used! Review by Sean
    Quality
    Price
    Value
    So I was skeptical of this holster before I bought it. I worked with Jess and one other chat representative asking them all the questions under the sun while watching the videos on the page about the Shapeshift 4.0. Ever since getting the holster I am impressed in all aspects. It is the most comfortable thing I have ever used in my life. I was surprised I was able to put my M&P Shield 9 inside my waist and not even feel it. I carry just over my right back pocket slightly further back than side carry and you can't even tell it's there. Easy to draw, the retention screw works just like described in the video. I did have to get a second shell to use with my other mount but I now have it set up where i can carry a single weapon all day and have it holstered either at my desk, in my car, or on my person just by switching the gun into the slot it needs to be at that time. Not exactly how they intended but it works for me.

    Absolutely would recommend this holster to anyone even those friends of mine who have the Cloak 3.0 and got upset that it hurt to carry long term. This thing is the best thing ever.

    Only complaint/caveat: Get a longer belt! If you don't have a belt longer than you normally need to wear your pants the holster will make your waistband a little wider so you will need to get a bit more length on your belt. Seems obvious in hindsight but I didn't figure this out until I tried it on the first day. Learn from my mistakes! (Posted on 10/3/2017)

    This is my third IWB Holster from AG. I have the 2.0 and 3.0 both for my Hi-point C9 and I love how comfortable they both are for carrying all day. I changed to an M&P Shield 9mm for my EDC and decided to get the 4.0. I was kind of iffy about it at first since the shell is only secure on one side. I can say those iffy feelings were gone within seconds of putting on the holster and holstering my shield. The click of it locking in and how it stays put especially with my busy life. You guys have once again amazed me!!! (Posted on 9/29/2017)

    I am an FF/EMT at a career dept that allows personnel to ccw. I work 12 hour shifts and wear the holster for probably 13-16 hours a day when on shift. It is comfortable the entire time. At no point does it become cumbersome. I have to take it out of the holster occasionally (due to hospital regulations) and I find it easy to holster and unholster. Stays close to my body and printing in minimal. Highly recommend this holster for anyone. For reference gun is a Glock 27 with hyve +1 mag extension (Posted on 9/6/2017)

    A Holster for Everyone and Everything Review by Blake

    I purchased a Shapeshift 4.0 IWB Holster with a mounting piece and an extra shell for permanent mounting inside the drivers side compartment in my truck. After conversing with Alien Gear about whether I could switch the extra shells gear locking piece to the left handed side in order to place it next to my right leg inside my truck. I have had the pleasure of owing an amazingly comfortable holster with the added benefit of being able to stay comfortable inside my car without having to place my weapon outside of my reach in the glove compartment. The versatility and ease of use is phenomenal, and the companies customer service is nothing short of exceptional.
    Also just to add, the mechanism for moving the belt clips to better suit your carrying needs is so easy to use. (Posted on 8/28/2017)

    This IWB holster fits well, even with my "curves". I always wear an IWB with a shirt under my untucked over-shirt and the comfort and fit, especially with the pad behind the firearm sights and beavertail next to my side, can be worn all day without pinching, sweating, or feeling the need to re-position it. I've worn several brands and this is the most confortable to wear all-day, every-day. (Posted on 8/27/2017)
    Unquestionably the BEST holster you can buy Review by mib42a
    Quality

    Look, everyone has personal preferences, but in my opinion this simply is the best iwb holster you can buy. The quality is unreal. The appearance is second to NONE. The comfort is in a totally different league from anything I've ever used. I'm so thankful I found the AG 4.0. Whoever designed this should be exceptionally proud with their work. Other hybrid style holsters truly aren't in the neighborhood of what this is. When I took it out of the package I couldn't believe it. I only wonder how the neoprene holds up after heavy use and sweat? I guess I'll find out. Ok I'm done. I'm off to throw all my other holsters away because none of them compare to this.
