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 Starter Kit 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 Starter Kit 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 Starter Kit, 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.

Very nice good quality comfortable. Easy to put together and build or take apart. Easy to adjust cant and height. More concealed then my leather holsters. Best holsters you can get for low cost. One of my leather holster was 60 dollars and it broke with in 6 months so i had to fix it my self and modify it. Thank you alien gear for a nice good quality holster and a forever warranty on products (Posted on 7/6/2018)

Great products, good prices, exceptional warranty. Too many pro's to list, only a few con's.....1) Small parts are extremely expensive to ship......and it doesn't help if you add them to a larger order 2) I sure wish the inside and outside portions of the shell were available as separate items.....I'd like to have each carry method set up and ready to go at any time 3) I'm personally not a fan of the thumb release....the old model is too small to get to and the new model seems to bind during (attempted) release on my configurations. However, the adjustable retention is GREAT! Overall, I give this product 5/5 stars. I give the company 6/5 stars.......They're almost too good to be true. (Posted on 7/5/2018)

I can't praise this enough. Simply amazing, truly. Each time I've upgraded, I've thought, "Well, they cannot make it any better than this. " I was wrong again. I have never seen or used something so cool and functional. Endless seeming options to carry. Just Buy It. (Posted on 6/29/2018)

I love my shapeshift holsters! First off, I received my order in less than 48 hours without paying extra s&h. That's amazing. Secondly I do my research before buying anything, and there is no other company that comes close to offering the same value for your money. Add that to the forever warranty and swappable shells, and you can't top this package. My XD Mod 2 is a full size service model so making it both concealable and comfortable is no small achievement. Overall I couldn't ask or expect anything more from a holster. Looking forward to buying one for my wife's EDC pistol. (Posted on 6/24/2018)

just got my shape shift starter kit and it is awesome almost every thing i expected i love it it is extremely comfortable in all of its forms. how ever i was highly disappointed with the paddle holster it is very comfortable cant even tell its there but with the quick release (which is a wonderful idea ) the shell and gun stick out away from your body really far like a good 3-4 inches away from your body which makes open caring very awkward other than that wonderful flawless design i love it to notch product (Posted on 6/22/2018)

I can't imagine there's a higher quality holster out there with more options and a better price. I just wish I would of bought the Alien Gear Holster starter kit before I wasted money on different holsters. The options the starter kit gave me along with the ability to swap between carry methods so quickly is just incredible! I'm a bigger guy so I found it difficult to find a holster that was comfortable to wear and that didn't print outside my clothes. Problem solved with Alien Gear, I can't say enough about this product. Don't waste anymore of your time or money, get a shapeshift from Alien Gear and you won't be disappointed. Thanks Alien Gear!

It took about two weeks for the shipment to arrive in Israel, and it took him about two months to receive it. It was worth the wait . You have a product that you can take pride in. Product price is fair. Good for you, here in Israel you know how to prolong your thinking and actions.
Thanks (Posted on 6/16/2018)

I was apprehensive at first and a little overwhelmed with the amount of parts. Within minutes changing from one configuration to another was so easy it is almost hard to explain.
The fit, quality and workmanship is excellent. I cant wait to buy the expansion kit. Pretty sure this will be my last holster. (Posted on 6/13/2018)
DO IT!!!! Review by John

So I'm not normal. Instead of a Glock or a Springfield, preferably in the compact variety, I bought a Rock Island Armory, 1911 TAC Ultra FS HC. That's right, a 5 inch 1911 that holds 17+ rounds in 9mm, and has a full rail/front dust cover. And Alien gear does not have a shapeshifter for me.

Or do they? Looking at the images of the shell and several reviews I was confident that with minor modifications I could make it work. The 1911 5 inch shapeshift holster fit my buddies Ruger 1911 just perfectly. So I figured I was good especially since I have plans to pick up a 4.25 inch RIA 1911 HC gun in the near future. That one will be sans dust cover.

So I first purchased a shell separately to modify and see how it would work. If I was wrong, I'm only out $40.00. I was not wrong. Only slight changes to the back of the shell and the front lower and it fits like a glove, though not OJ's glove. I've already got just over $100.00 in other holsters so that I can have an IWB & an OWB holster. They worked for my gun, just not well. This system however gives me virtually every damn option I could want to go with and a bit more.

Now my mods have voided the warranty, but I don't foresee a lot of problems with that. I've found that companies that put bullet proof warranties on they're products generally don't need them as they over design the product.

It's comfortable, affordable, and makes a full size, high capacity 1911 disappear on my hip.

In short, if you have the means, I highly recommend a shapeshift kit. It is so choice. (Posted on 6/10/2018)
BEST HOLSTER I'VE EVER OWNED Review by JohnD

This is hands down the most modular and highest quality holster I've ever seen or used. Changing weapons and holster carry options is simple and fast. I purchased the starter kit for my g19 and have since ordered the shell for my wife to carry her lc9s and she loves it. The only regret I have is not buying the molle expansion pack when I originally purchased the holster. Great job aliengear your product is top notch and you have earned a lifetime customer.
