ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.
Imagine buying one holster that can quickly and easily transform into a variety of carry positions. This is now a reality with the all-new ShapeShift Modular Holster System.

The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack is the foundation of the ShapeShift Modular Holster System, and includes everything you need to carry in four distinct ways. In just a few quick steps, quickly transform the ShapeShift into an IWB holster, appendix carry holster, OWB belt slide, and OWB paddle holster. The Core Carry Pack also includes a bonus Holster Mount, so you can attach your ShapeShift to a variety of surfaces in seconds.

This Modular Holster System went through two years of development, and each holster method is unsurpassed in comfort and concealability.

For those looking to carry concealed, the ShapeShift IWB Holster is comfortable and ultra-concealable. A stainless-steel core gives structural support to the holster, while a soft CoolVent neoprene base maintains essential comfort. The shell of the modular holster attaches to the base with a single mounting point, which eliminates printing and makes the holster bend against the body even better.

Appendix carry has never been safer and more well-designed than with the ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster. This holster is an upgrade from other appendix carry options because of the single mounting feature that improves concealability, and a breathable neoprene backer that makes carrying AIWB natural. The holster shell fully covers the trigger guard and includes an optional thumb release.

The all-new ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster is the next evolution of outside the waistband carry. With its customizable design, this modular holster can be equipped with adjustable active retention, passive retention, or both. An ergonomic thumb release, included in every Core Carry Pack, gives you the option to carry using active retention. The Adjustable Retention Unit allows you to customize your passive retention in seconds. To achieve the perfect draw angle, the ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster is equipped with adjustable 360 degree cant and can be tilted in 12-degree increments.

For those looking for the handiness that comes with a belt slide holster, Alien Gear stepped it up with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster. One of the main complaints about other belt slide holsters is wobbliness when holstering or drawing the firearm that leads to unreliability. The ShapeShift OWB Slide is made of the same sturdy material as the ShapeShift OWB Paddle, so there will be no instability or wearing down, only consistency from the first draw to the last.

All holsters are made with the best and most durable materials, and Alien Gear Holsters backs this promise with a Forever Warranty and a 30-Day Test Drive. Made in America, unique to the planet.

Comfortable Review by Brian

I ordered the core pack for my Glock 42. At first I was sceptical about the IWB holster that came with it. Most of the IWB holsters I've purchased in the past were bulky,uncomfortable and dug into your back. With this one I don't even know it's there. Easily breaks down for another carry position. I also love the OWB belt slide position. I will definitely purchase more for my other guns. Highly recommend. (Posted on 5/18/2019)

I have lost track on the number of holsters I have purchased over the years. I was very hesitant too purchase another one (the shape shifter), but I am happy I did so. This is a high quality holster that works great and provides a number of different ways to carry which is great in MN where you have different cloths based on the time of years. I just purchased a shell for a smaller gun I am going to carry in the summer. I don't see myself buying any holster other then expansion packs for the shapeshifter. (Posted on 5/14/2019)
Great product but fell a bit short Review by Giovanni

This pack is so close to being outstanding but sadly falls short in a couple areas. The button to release to draw is absolutely horrendous. I would never trust it for anything but target shooting, and even then would be frustrating.. Its bizarre they let this go on such a great product. Long flimsy plastic that will not function if not pressed STRAIGHT in. Also one of the main reasons I got this was so I could take my IWB gun out and slide it in the vehicle mount. What I didn't expect is that you need a secondary holster to do it as half the shell is mounted to the IWB. Which isn't a huge deal, but even though you only need an extra half they seem to only sell a complete second shell. The Core Pack is great, but fixing the horrid release button and including one extra half shell would make it a true "do it all pack." Other than those complaints 5/5 for the serious thought that went into this product and what is probably the most modular adaptable pice of firearms gear I have ever seen. (Posted on 5/12/2019)

Strong and Comfortable Review by Jeff

I just tried out my ShapeShift IWB hostler from my Glock 22. I am on the security team at church so concealment is extremely important. I wore slacks, an undershirt (tucked), and a polo shirt (untucked). I wore the firearm at 5 o'clock. It was comfortable all morning with zero shocked church members. The gun was held securely.

I especially like the retention. The firearm "clicks" in. The Glock 22 is large but remained secure (no flopping around) and concealed.

I'm very happy with my purchase and refer all my friends. (Posted on 5/5/2019)

I've ordered several other holsters from here before not only for myself but also friends and family. I bought the shape shift for my youngest son as a Christmas gift. He is new to conceal carry and had no idea where to start for holsters so i saved him the headaches i went through and just bought him the best there is.

Needless to say he was surprised i got thank you calls and texts for the next month on how much he loved it. (Posted on 4/20/2019)

Cant believe how comfortable the IWB is! I absolutely love the adjustable retention feature of this system. I believe you guys have hit it out of the park with this design, what a great system. I will probably only use the IWB and the paddle holster but the other options are great to have just in case.

Excellent package. Review by Ruger L9SPro

I can't recall the total number of holsters that I currently own but suffice it to say there are several. I was impressed with the packaging right off the bat. Then I started looking at all of the components. Still impressed. I then watched several video's and read thru all the directions. After a while it all started to make sense. I had several of my friends show up (I was at work) and they were equally impressed with the functionality and quality. Today is my second day using my newest prize. I wore it home last night as an OWB setup and found it very comfortable in the car. This AM, I assembled the IWB setup and am now wearing it around the office and out in the field. I'm very pleased with the fit and comfort. I have been in and out of my vehicle and all over the building, sitting and standing. I hardly know it't on. I have an IWB holster for my Glock that I used before retirement and I thought it was great but yours is even better and more comfortable. Thank you for a great idea and great product.

I was overwhelmed when I opened the box. I was afraid to change out my holsters so I only used one for about three months. Well...I finally got up the nerve to try everything, and it was actually pretty easy. I'm so happy with Alien Gear!!! (Posted on 4/16/2019)
