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.

I am a new gun owner. I researched holsters fairly extensively. I was skeptical to buy something without having the opportunity to try it on, but I took the chance and I'm glad I did. The holster fit very comfortably. The amount of adjustments available made it a perfect fit for my friend who has a very different body type from me. The quality of the product and knowledge of the staff are directly responsible for me buying from them again. Great Product. (Posted on 1/2/2018)
Best IWB holster Review by Shield 9

I have been using the 4.0 IWB Shape Shifter holster since Christmas. I have a box full of IWB holsters, many costing much more then yours, and I find the Shape Shifter is the most comfortable by far. Even when driving I forget I'm wearing it. This is my new go-to IWB from now on. (Posted on 12/31/2017)

The holster is amazing! I have a 5 inch 1911 and it's not the most practical concealed carry but the 4.0 holster is unbelievable in making it comfortable enough to edc. Any holster I'll buy in the future will be alien gear. I really feel like I've got more than what I paid for. You just don't get that feeling with most of your purchases this day and age. Thank you alien gear for making a product that exceeded my expectations. (Posted on 12/26/2017)

Wish I bought more Review by Wayne

After much research on “the best left handed holster to carry concealed “ I chose the alien gear 4.0. I was nervous how it would fit and feel since there are few left handed holsters to try before you buy. It arrived just days after ordering and I was anxious to try it out, read all the instructions and put it on. I told the wife we we’re going out. After several hours of shopping and driving I could hardly tell I had it on, extremely comfortable! I ordered the extra clips and am glad I did, the original clip was a little too tight to fit over my one belt, belt is too thick, worked good on standard belt though. My only regret is that I didn’t get the starter kit for $44 more but being newly retired I had to stay within a budget . (Posted on 12/20/2017)
Part II Review by Karl

Had to add to my previous review. Having worn the 4.0 for a few days now, I have to say it is the most comfortable holster I've owned. I carried a Glock19 in an AG 3.0. I carry the Glock 17 in this 4.0 and it is more comfortable, and seems lighter than the 19. I can't recommend this holster highly enough. Thanks, Alien Gear! (Posted on 12/11/2017)
BUY The Starter Kit Review by Karl
Quality

I purchased the IWB Shapeshifter. What a great holster. It's only been a couple of years since I purchased my 3.0 and I've got plenty of life left in my 3.0, but this holster is an incredible improvement. I have the plastic clips on a 3.0 for a smaller pistol, and they were not very tight. The plastic clips that come with this are much stronger, very tight. I love them. My only complaint is that I was too foolish to buy the whole starter kit. I would recommend getting the whole kit. It is well worth it. I've been ordering holsters from Ted since it was Old Faithful ... I've NEVER been disappointed. When I've needed customer service (only for extra parts) they've sent them out asap no questions asked. If you like to deal with a quality company that sells a first class product, this is where you need to get your holsters! I also ordered an extra mount ... I will probably order more. The flexibility of this unit to change configurations is incredible. I will be ordering another kit for my M&P (this one was for my Glock). I'll order the whole kit this time ... as I'll be able to use all the stuff for either pistol. AWESOME!!! If you're on the fence about this holster ... get off and order it already. You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! (Posted on 12/9/2017)
The most comfortable IWB Holster I've ever used... And I've used a lot of them. Review by JonnyB

I am simply amazed by the 4.0 series, not only did they make this conveniently modular but it actually better than it's predecessor in just about every way imaginable. The neoprene back is so soft that I actually think about wearing it, even if I'm carrying in another format. I love that the depth of the holster can be adjusted without tools and that you have the option to adjust the cant or angle with tools If you want to. I've used almost every IWB Holster on the market and I honestly can't think of a single one that I would rather wear or is more comfortable. Thank you AG for your continued commitment to excellence (Posted on 12/7/2017)
