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.

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!!

After having this holster for some time since I ordered it. I am highly impressed. My Glock 19 double stack has been difficult for me to chose out there in the market would be best for concealment and not feel so worried it wasn't concealed properly. I walk with my glock in confidence I can always carry. Great design and even though my body sweats a bit, I dont sweat more where the holster is and in fact keeps my body cool. I plan to purchase another once I decide for a good compact one. Thanks again and excellent work on your product . (Posted on 8/9/2018)

As this was my first holster with my newly acquired CCDW, I had been told by everyone to come to alien gear first. I am so glad that I did, I am a large man, and I wear this every day at the 4:30 position and have absolutely no problem. This is a great addition to my lineup. (Posted on 8/9/2018)

Let me start by saying when I opened the package I was overwhelmed with all the parts it came with. 15 Mins later I was in total control. Comfortable, light well made very concealable as a matter of fact, when I carry my Glock 19 it doesn't even feel like I'm carrying... GREAT JOB..! Alien Gear. (Posted on 7/28/2018)
Great product! Review by Josh

First off, I have been using the cloak tuck 3.0 IWB since 2015. Was pretty happy with that other the having to apply the locktite to the belt clip screws every so often. It was comfortable to wear. Then the Shapeshift came along and I saw the ingenious why the belt clips hooked on the IWB holster. I also saw how the overall holster wasn't as wide as the 3.0 is. I loved how the draw retention was so simplistic in nature. So I decided to purchase one. Now I just purchased the 4.0 IWB as a standalone and not the overall Shapeshifter kit (personal choice). After using it for nearly a month I am very happy with it. The belt clips took a few days to "break-in" which probably just depends on the thickness of your belt. IMO, I think the holster is actually more comfortable then the 3.0 that I came from which I didn't think was possible. It does seem to be ever so slight thicker then the 3.0 but no noticeable difference when wearing and definitely not a big printing bulge from it at the 4 o'clock position. You could actually where this at the 3 o'clock which I tried by my body type it was not comfortable like that because I am on the thin side. Overall the tooless design of this holster is really ingenious on AG's part. Its nice not having to go from Allen wrenches anymore to make adjustments or to tighten up loosening screws.

GOOD but not quite great. Review by RedBeard

I bought this holster for my Ruger SR1911 about three or four months ago. I have stopped carrying my 1911 simply for the weight that is behind it, and have recently recently bought a full size M&P 45. I really do like the shapeshift starter kit, however, I really only like the IWB configurations. The biggest reason is for the added thumb safety feature that is added to the OWB options. I found it to be very difficult to depress. I tried to also carry it with out this added feature and found that no matter how I adjusted the tension it was difficult to draw. Again I love the IWB holsters though. I am not sure if this is a individual problem or not, but I would not recommend for new shooters. (Posted on 7/11/2018)
Worth the time spent configuring... Review by Martha

I will admit that when I first opened the package, even after watching several youtube reviews and setup videos, I was a bit overwhelmed. I purchased the C, J, and O clips along with the holster, and am glad that I did! I tried the suggested 4:00-5:30 position, and it just wasn't working for me. I switched to the C clip, and it started to work, but not like I wanted it to. I was bulgy in all sorts of places, and I don't think a patterned shirt would have helped at all. I'm a 5'6" 145# woman, but I'm a little hip-y, and they're low set hips. I'm also a little muffin top-y, as much as I hate to say it...I'm working on it!...that's besides the point. So, 4:00-5:30 didn't work for me. I was frustrated, and let it be for the night. A couple nights later, I tried again. I moved the holster to a 10:30 position (left front hip - cross draw). I changed the C clip positioning for a greater cant. I also adjusted the present screws for an even greater cant, where my Ruger grip point more towards my belly button. It is perfect! With a nice thick belt, it doesn't feel bulky. I can sit comfortably, and I just love it! Don't lose hope! It may take you hours or days to move things around, but you'll find that sweet spot!
