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 bought this holster several months ago and it's fantastic. Very comfortable for everyday use. Clearly made to last and very adjustable, as well as surprisingly secure.
Customer service was great.

This is easily the most comfortable iwb holster I have worn and that is being said with the previous firearm I have tried iwb carry which was a Ruger LCP. What I bought the shapeshift for is the much bulkier M&P 9C and I still think I'm carrying the bigger gun more comfortably then I ever did the LCP.

Product arrived today 2 days early. Excellent transaction will definitely buy from them again. The product looks just as good in person as it did on all the videos. I'm extremely happy it comes ready to wear in the waistband and looks like it's easy to modify for all its other applications. (Posted on 10/24/2018)

I was very excited to try this after seeing some videos about it and I wasn't disappointed! It is hands down, the best holster I've ever used. The detail and intelligence that went into the design is top notch. It's incredibly comfortable and so easy to adjust! I'm blown away! I can honestly say I love this holster! (Posted on 10/20/2018)

I placed my order 2 days ago for my Shape Shifter 4.0 IWB and received it today.. WOW! With a 3-4 day lead time I didn't expect it to arrive for a week at least. Well I am super pleased, this one is smaller and weighs 1 oz. more than the original but WAYYYYY more comfortable. I'm a lefty and wear my firearm at 8-8:30 position Thank you AG for innovation and comfort, while setting up my holster I was looking at the other modular goodies it came with and I got a (imo) a really good idea... if you design a different clip that holds the shell to the backer, you can remove the cog adapter and install the shell part with the thumb drive and create a level ll holster. and I would definitely buy the extra part to make this happen. (just a thought) (Posted on 10/4/2018)

Novice gun owner. Tried "big box store" style holsters but not satisfied at all. Read many on-line reviews and Alien Gear came out on top for me. Ordered the IWB Shape Shift 4.0 for my Ruger LC9s. Fits the gun perfectly. Retention easy to set for where I want it. Very comfortable wearing it. Extremely pleased! (Posted on 9/26/2018)

Beyond Expectations Review by Paul

I ordered the 4.0 IWB holster for my Springfield Armory XD 2.0 9mm. This holster has so many options. You can literally make it wear how you want it. I carry the 16 round X-tended mag instead of the flush 13 round mag and you can't even see it poking out through my clothes and comfortable is an understatement. My other countless holsters always made my pants sag on one side. The design of this holster has somehow eliviated that. Also I had no idea I could draw my gun so quick and you don't have to look down to put your gun back in. The clips on the holster stay in place. You move around, they don't. A lot of thought and man hours went into this incredible product. Buy one. It will put a smile on your face. (Posted on 8/23/2018)

After having the tuck 3.x for a few years I truly did not think you guys/girls could improve on perfection.Oh how wrong I was! After unpacking my new ShapeShift 4.0 and dialing it in, it is truly on a level no other holster can touch! Comfort, fit and finish, adjustability, I cannot say enough about how good this holster is. I got the basic kit and can now see myself plundering the add-ons for a truly fit anything go anywhere system. I have not acquired alternate shells for my other DC pistols but soon will! The comfort is in a class by itself. No print through, secure retention system, easy draw and the list goes on and on. Now that I have my 4.0 I can finally send in my 3.x for some needed repairs to the neoprene backing that came slightly unstitched due to daily use for 2 years. I just didn't want to be without it while warranty repairs were under way. The price for what you are getting is truly unbelievable. I have bought holsters that cost twice as much and had nowhere near the fit and comfort that Alien Gear brings to the table. Search through the options list, pick the holster for your unit (they are adding new models steadily) if it is available and just order it! You will not be disappointed!
Best holster ever!!
