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 with a premium blend of cutting-edge composite materials that will provide you with the highest level of concealed comfort.

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.

I have 2 AG IWB holsters, a shapeshift and a cloak tuck. Both are very comfortable. Just ordered a shapeshift shell for my G43. Highly recommend your holsters (Posted on 6/15/2018)

Your AIWB looks great. I might have to get a third version now. You guys know your stuff. You can tell by the versatility your Holsters have to tailor them personally. Keep up the good work. (Posted on 6/4/2018)

Received my AG ShapeShift 4.0 yesterday and received it earlier than estimated, so already starting off on a good note. I got this for my Springfield XD 9mm service model. I immediately went to work on setting it up for my liking and it was extremely simple and comfortable. Adjustment of the cant, ride height and retention was a breeze as they already state in their informational video(s). I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for and I would have no question in purchasing another someday if the need was ever there. I think the quality and comfort do wonders for this holster and expect it will get even better in the future. (Posted on 5/20/2018)

Best holster I've used Review by Druder

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. (Posted on 4/25/2018)
Alien Gear 4.0 IWB: Part of Great Package Review by Wisconsin Will

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! (Posted on 4/25/2018)
Best Ever Review by Don

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". (Posted on 4/19/2018)

Alien Gear provides the highest level of customer service. Coming to the website, I was able to converse with a service rep immediately through the instant messenger. Told them I needed to swap my Glock 43 shell for a 19, but also was needing a parts kit as I had lost some parts as well as my total kit during a house move. They got me squared away. An email said to allow up to 3 weeks for processing/handling. I had my product sent to them and returned to me with a replacement parts kit in less than a week, all free of charge. This holster is the most comfortable I've ever used, and being a 210+ pound man, I'm happy to say I can easily pack my Glock 19 IWB and have it completely concealed- no printing! Very happy with this company and would always recommend. (Posted on 4/10/2018)
