    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.

    This is the best looking, best made, most comfortable, and most versatile holster on the market. Put it together and take it apart a few times and it quickly makes sense how brilliant this system is. And the IWB is the most comfortable I've ever used. I would recommend this to anyone.

    I've had my holster for around a week now for my Springfield XD 45 mod 2 and have been impressed with the comfort level of this setup. I am still tweaking the ride can't and depth to where I'm happy, but it's easy to do the adjustments whenever I choose to. Overall I am pleased with it, and look forward to whenever alien gear gets the shapeshift version for the mod 2. (Posted on 9/7/2017)

    SO much thought went into this gun holster system. Kudos to Alien Gear team!

    I received mine and spent about an hour getting aquainted with all 4 holsters and how to put them together. A little time adjusting the IWB and I was ready to roll.

    So very comfortable and easy to use.

    It's been a little bit of a learning curve to get it installed properly and in the right spot for me depending on which pants I'm wearing (due to belt loop number and locations)., but none more than expected.

    I'm currently using it with a M&P Shield 9mm and really look forward to using it with my Sig P238 (hoping they create a shell for it!) !!!

    I received my starter kit yesterday. I was like a kid at the candy store. Love the Shapeshift product, so many different ways to carry. Not sure where to start. Great quality and best value around.

    Now if they can make Shapeshift shells for different laser/light attachments for different guns, Aliengear would be hands down on top of the rest. (My opinion and they stand alone already.) (Posted on 9/6/2017)

    I pre-ordered the Shape shift system, so it did take about a month to receive it, but it was well worth the wait. When I bought my new pistol, I found few places that sold a holster for it, so I stumbled upon Alien Gear. When I saw the shape shift, I began watching videos and reading about the system and I knew this was what I needed. It is incredibly comfortable in any of the 4 methods of carry, I did buy the extra clips, and have used all of them for different carry situations. Can't wait till they come out with a shell for my M&P 40c and I will be purchasing it! (Posted on 9/3/2017)

    This is a great holster once I figured out how to switch it around. It was a bit confusing at first, but once I got the hang of it (thank you YouTube) it's straight forward, comfortable and built to the highest of quality.

    The best thing about this holster to me is the customer service that comes with it. I sent in an email with a question. I checked a couple more emails that I needed to respond to and noticed a few minutes later that I had a response. It wasn't even one of those "we have received your email and someone will get back to you" emails. It was a real live response to my question!!! Not only that, the next morning I got a phone call asking if I got what I needed, you've got to be kidding me, this is 2017, no one has this kind of customer service anymore.

    God bless America and God bless Alien Holsters. (Posted on 9/3/2017)

    I love the versatility of the Shape Shift modular system. Considering any decent holster starts at around $80 and up, having the ability to carry in 4 different configurations and being able to effortlessly switch between them all is a huge plus. My only requests would be a method of utilizing the holster mount with the IWB/AIWB configurations, and making the full shell with a slimmer attachment between it and the mount... Oh and a shell for the Glock 29, cause after purchasing the kit for a Glock 43, I immediately purchased an additional shell for my Glock 19, and basically I'm now looking to switch all my holsters over to this system. Can't wait to see what other options are coming as well, specifically the drop thigh/leg mount. (Posted on 9/1/2017)
    Almost perfect Review by Hey Mistet
    Quality

    This holster is almost perfect. It had everything you need and I find myself changing the way I carry daily between the appendix carry and in the waist. It's not cold enough for me to be dressed bulky enough for the over the waist options. At first I thought I would never figure out how to put it all together because I'm just one of those guys that can't put together furniture. After watching a video I realized how simple it was. So simple. Stupid simple. I love this product.

    Here are my only two issues: 1.The appendix carry is a little bulkier than I would have liked and that's probably due to the neoprene skin on the inside of it. I don't mind it but it makes it a little extra bulky. There are no annoying screws that get loose and falll out eventually like in their old models.

    2 The clips that came with the iWB carry option(and the extra ones I ordered) are hard to handle. My favorite ones are the clips that came with it but I find it hard to take them off and put them onto my belt. Other then these two things I love this product. (Posted on 9/1/2017)

    One of my colleagues sent me an email with the video for the Shape shifter starter kit and once I saw it I knew I had to purchase it. I am a Federal Law Enforcement Officer and just ordered the Shape shifter starter kit for the Glock 26 and the extra shell for the Glock 19. Excellent system with multiple options of carry. The IWB carry option is the most desirable for me since it’s comfortable all day that I forget I am carrying my weapon. I recommended this system to 18 other colleagues and they also ordered the kit! Excellent product, pricing and shipping time! I highly recommend Alien Gear and their products to LEOs and civilians. A special thanks to the sales associates (you know who you are-LOL) for taking our orders and shipping our kits immediately!! (Posted on 9/1/2017)

    So Im pretty new to the conceal carry world, i have gone and bought many different types of holsters kydex, hard shell, soft shell, leather etc. But i get off topic, the point is they are all very unconformable, and hard to get used to, so i started to do some looking around on you tube reviews and everything else. and i saw a review on Alien Gear, and the guy had nothing but good things to say, better things to say over the other 4 holsters he had. so i did a little digging, and found out about the shapshift holster, and i was very impressed with the different types of carrying options that this system offered, so i ordered one, when it showed up it was like christmas, i read up on how to put it together and i figured out which why i wanted to carry, IWB, so once i got everything together i had to test it. and i must say it was best and most conformable holster i have carried, i am extremely impressed with this holster, and different carry options, i suggest this holster to anyone that is new to carrying a firearm, or even to anyone who has been carrying for years, this is and will be the only holster you will ever need to buy, (Posted on 8/29/2017)
    Great quality way more comfortable than the leather iwb I own Review by Johnathan

    The iwb is great comfortable and very adjustable. I do wish the clips would move up another inch or so. But maybe they sell longer ones.
    The owb is great fits pretty close to you. And is concealed well with an untucked shirt.
    Paddle and belt holsters are great for the range
    Only one I'm not excited about is the appendix Carry.
    The clip going back over the weapon creates extra bulk. Don't get me wrong. It's a nice holster. But I'm 5'11" 170lbs and I Just can't seem to get it to fit well. I think if they redesigned it with a slimmer clip on each side and no back piece, just the actual holster it would be more concealable and more comfortable. But I love the iwb. Had a crossbreed the leather bends too much and gets all flimsy and rubs if you plan on carrying iwb or owb This is a great holster set up. If your looking for aiwb. I dont know. Doesn't fit me well. maybe I'm not using it right lol I won't rule out operator error! (Posted on 8/29/2017)

    I bought the Shape Shift for my G19 since they do not have one for the Sig yet. I order this on Monday and got it on Saturday very fast order fulfillment and shipping. After using it for 2 days I will have to say this, I do understand why Alien Gear has been voted the best holster. I used the appendix carry configuration and it was very easy to change the configuration of the holster to it and it was extremely comfortable. You tend to forget that it is there. I would recommend this to anyone who asks about a holster for their firearm.

    Here is to hoping new models come out very soon. (Posted on 8/28/2017)

    I am new to EDCing and did a lot of looking around, trying on some different holster styles with different guns. I found the gun I liked, Glock 26, then I just needed to find the holster and carry style that I liked the best. What I love about this is the style, comfort, and options. You really don't find to many holsters out there that give you the flexibility that this one does. Its pretty much 4 holsters in one, and for $100 its a deal that hard to find for the quality you get. Plus, if you purchase a different gun, all you need is a new shell and you are good to go! I cant wait to make this something apart of my day to day and look forward to finding out exactly what fits me. I would 100% recommend if you are new to this like I am and trying to find the fit that works for you. (Posted on 8/17/2017)

    Most comfortable holster I've ever owned. Review by Lucas
    Quality
    Price
    Value
    Let me start off by saying Ive never been built very big so it's difficult for me to find a holster that's not only comfortable but doesn't print. I live on a working farm as well as concealed carry every day so I mostly use a paddle holster on the farm and IWB everywhere else, so I own several top of the line holsters. With the shapshift it eliminated the need to entirely change my holster several times a day, with minimal time on the system I can switch between holsters in less than a minute. This is the most comfortable paddle I've ever used, it's low profile but secure and puts the weapon away from my body Enough to draw with a jacket and gloves without having to fiddle with my coat. I also love the ability to change to cant so it rides staight up and down when I'm in the truck allowing for easy access and not digging into my side or hip all day. The IBW sits comfortably and allowed total customization to my body as well as eliminated the sag and print caused by my other holsters. I'm also very excited to try the holster mount once I pick a spot. Will definitely be paring with the Alien Gear gun belt in a few weeks and very much looking forward too the upcoming expansion packs. I truly believe this is most likely the last everyday carry system I'll ever need. (Posted on 8/16/2017)

    I ordered the starter pack because I had a Cloak Tuck 3.0 that was the bomb. I wanted versatility in carry, especially for winter.

    The system takes a little while to figure out and it's not super quick to swap out components but it doesn't take forever.

    I like paddle and OWB options that click into place so you can remove the gun and holster as one unit. But it sticks way out from my side. Even with a stiff Hank's gun belt it still sagged a little with a small 9 mm Shield.

    I wish the whole holster system rode closer to the body, since in IL we are concealed carry only and this would stick out like sore thumb even under a heavy winter coat. (Posted on 8/14/2017)

    I already owned a cloak tuck for my S&W Model 5906 9MM and 9mm M&P Shield Performance Center, but after watching videos on You Tube I knew I had to purchase one of the Shape Shifter kits. I was told it could take up to 10 days for shipping since they were in high demand. I was surprised when my order shipped just two days after placing the order. I am very pleased with the quality, what is included in the kit and over all performance and versatility of this holster. As other have said, it can be a bit overwhelming with what you get, so watch some videos. A+ Alien Gear for a fantastic combo holster kit. Hopefully, you will make one for my wife's S&W Bodyguard 380 with built in laser. (Posted on 8/13/2017)

    Bought one of these for my Springfield XD mod2 compact chambered in 9mm. It fits the gun like a glove and the adjustable retention is super fast and easy to change. VERY comfortable to wear all day. I almost forget I even have my gun on me sometimes. I have only used this as IWB and slide OWB, but enjoy having the option to carry 2 other ways if I choose. Takes a little bit to figure out what pieces are needed for what carry option, but once you have swapped it over a couple times, it becomes much easier and faster. Anxiously awaiting the tactical leg carry option to be released. Also hoping to be able to buy other shells so I can also use this holster system on my XDm. Overall I am very glad I bought this and would buy it again!

    This holster system is by far the best system out there and extremely versatile. I'm glad that I purchased this holster system instead of some of the others out there. I have an Alien Gear IWB 1.0 holster and I love it. When I started looking for something more than just a single purpose holster, I was shocked to find that the market doesn't have much out there to allow you to transition from one style to another besides the Shape Shift system. After opening the box, I must admit, I was like a kid in the candy store with all the different ways that I could holster my weapon and I just that. I configured the holster every possible way to test them all out. I am a bigger person and this holster fits great in all configurations.

    I received my holster a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I carry IWB on a daily basis with my job and could tell right away how much more comfortable and concealable this holster was, than my previous holsters. It only took me an hour of playing with the holsters to be able to switch them out efficiently. I had one minor issue with my thump release catching, however after a quick online chat with Tyler W. I was shipped a new release. I have never experienced such great customer service with any other company (not just firearms related companies). I love all the different ways to carry and regerally switch them depending on what I'm wearing for the day and if I'm on/off duty. 5 stars. (Posted on 8/8/2017)

    Four ways to carry each gun with no tools needed to change your carry method?!?! I absolutely love this holster system! Simple, intuitive, and COMFORTABLE, I just can't say enough. And, all of this for the price of one custom holster. The only thing close to negative I have to say is, "Hurry up with the shells for rest of my collection!" My H&Ks and Sigs need new homes. I recommend Alien Gear to anyone and everyone who asks me what holster they need to get. Also, if you haven't tried the mag carriers, you're missing out. Great job guys. Keep up the good work.

    Quality

    Value
    All of the half shell configurations are awesome. 5 stars if that's all I was reviewing.

    The full shell configurations tend to sit too far out from the body. I actually hit it on a door frame earlier. I got the comfort belt slide and even though I wear a heavy blackhawk gun belt it still sags some. The paddle is better, doesn't sag but still sticks out.

    The worst part by far is the thumb break for what that's worth. It sits too far low, I can't disengage it without losing a good firing grip on my gun. It is incredibly tight and uneven throughout and has to be pushed really hard to get the gun out, even if the regular retention is loose all of the way.

    I hate the fact that most of what I had to say was negative because what this holster offers is amazing. I would recommend it but my recommendation would be to either wait until the system comes as the IWB 4.0 or appendix or whatever form you want or buy it wit only those in mind. OWB with the backer, IWB and appendix carry are amazing configurations. If you want a shell holster with retention for open carry I'd look elsewhere. (Posted on 8/7/2017)

    This is a game changing product. Where else are you going to get four holsters of this caliber for such a great value. Plus this is made in the USA. How can we not support that.
    I did have a small issue with one piece not fitting correctly. Placed a Quick call to the super friendly customer support, told them the issue and the only question I got was where should we ship the new part to.

    When I opened my ShapeShift, I was pretty overwhelmed. Once I assembled one option of the holster, I realized how extremely simple it is. The most difficult part was deciding which option I wanted to try 1st. I opted to ad a shell to the starter kit, and have 2 options to carry without any changes. I'm positive I will ad some additional options as I continue to learn the SS features/options. The quality is unbelievable, and customer service is off the chart. Great job AG, I highly recommend you products. (Posted on 8/5/2017)

    I've worn an Alien Gear Tug since the 1.0. Each time a new version came out I got it... love the holsters great fit and all around great product for the price... But I have to say Alien Gear has made an even better holster , the ability to change the type of carry whiteout spending more money is great. But the thing I am most impressed with is the IWB setup... it's even better than the New 4.0 in my opnion. Great product !!! (Posted on 8/4/2017)

    I received my ShapeShift about a week ago and have been wearing it IWB everyday since with my S&W M&P Shield. I was using a AG Cloak Tuck 3 which I really like prior. The ShapeShift is actually smaller and more comfortable than my Cloak 3 and the best part - I don't need to wear a t-shirt between my holster and my skin anymore. The new material is very comfortable and doesn't rub my skin raw - it breathes incredibly well. Quality has been great so far! Retention is superb and adjustable which is awesome! Gun snaps in and out. I don't see any issues in the foreseeable future with this holster and I'm looking forward to trying all the different carry options. (Posted on 8/2/2017)

    I've been wearing the IWB holster for my glock 22 in the center of my lower back for the last week now. This is by far the most comfortable holster ever made! I carry to work every day and my job requires that I climb all over equipment for repair purposes, so laying down, hanging upside down with half my body shoved in small spaces to turn a wrench and this holster has kept my weapon safe and secure. At one point I had to reach back and make sure it was still there, now that is comfort. I did have one problem though, when I assembled the owb holster my firearm did not fit. The reason I still give this product five stars is because I made a quick phone call and I have a new one on the way. But Alien gear did not leave it at that, they asked if I would send the defective holster back so they can positively I.D the problem in order to continue to ensure a quality product. Needless to say this is a great company that stands behind a great product. (Posted on 7/29/2017)

    The product and the design is appealing and sturdy but some are dust collectors. I'll use the slide owb kit and that will be it. The paddle holster sticks out wayyy too far and wouldn't be safe for edc. Would be decent for the range I guess. The appendix carry is just not for me. But the inside the waist band is an over detailed cloak 3. And I still perfer my cloak over this one. But good kit if you need to find out how you want to carry. Very versatile (Posted on 7/28/2017)

    1st Alien gear purchase. Was in the market for a new IWB and OWB for the range so figured I'd get 4 in 1 with the shape shifter. Just received it a few days ago so haven't had a chance to wear it for a full day. After figuring out the mechanics of it I tried it on around the house and so far feels great. Only issue is when in the OWB belt slide configuration, getting to the locking cap on the right side is pretty difficult. But that's just getting nitpicky. Wish I would have gotten an extra shield. But very happy with the bonus mounting kit and attachment. Will be adding it to my car soon (Posted on 7/28/2017)

    I recently preordered and received my shape shift holster system for the S&W Shield 9mm PC. Once it arrived I immediately began building the holster. I am a Police Officer and U.S. Navy (MAA) Veteran and I carry EVERYWHERE I go. I initially built the OTW paddle configuration and carried it every day for a week. I now have converted it over to the IWB configuration and am enjoying it as much as I did the paddle. I have tried on the appendix carry mode, and as I am larger in the waist, it doesn't work well for me, but is still comfortable. The main thing I can say about this system is that it is well built, easy to customize(with the included instructions), highly versatile and comfortable to wear all day. The only complaint I have is the positioning of the thumb release and getting used to it, I may try it again at a later date. As of now I am extremely happy with this purchase and above all I take pride in knowing I'm wearing a quality American Made product with the added bonus of a lifetime warranty, all of which pleases me to no end. Thank you Aliengear for making a quality product especially one you stand behind. (Posted on 7/27/2017)

    I carry daily and usethe Alien Gear Cloak 3.0 as my primary holster. Well I did up to when I got the ShapeShift Holster. Now this is my primary carry holster!!! This new holster is super comfortable, easy to put on and very light weight. No tools required to adjust the cant, ride height or to change from the different carry holsters. You get four holsters in one plus a mounting system. You can wear it IWB, Appendix, OWB, Paddle or outside the waistband slide. Plus you can also mount the holster in your vehicle, under a table, desk etc.

    The quality and workmanship is nothing less than excellent (it's Alien Gear what else do you expect). I was completely blown away by the ShapeShift!!! Alien Gear Holsters has outdone themselves with this holster.

    I'm an Alien Gear Holster customer for life. (Posted on 7/26/2017)

    I got mine in over the weekend and I was amazed at the number of components. A little shocked at first.

    Then I grabbed a bottle of water, sat down and started going through everything with the booklet. It was fairly easy to figure out how things went.

    I will admit to more than a few minutes of confusion until I realized that the rear of the half shell configuration for IWB was meant not to be attached to the backing in any fashion.

    I have been using the original holster i bought from them several years ago, and while it feels like i'm putting away an old friend for a sparkly new one, I am glad to get to update my holster.

    i will have to order another shell so that i can use the in-vehicle mount though..since i do use only the half shell configuration. (Posted on 7/24/2017)

    Finally received my kit. Most carry appendix and found that this one is not adjustable, it rides too high, when you sit down or get up it feels like it's going to flop over and fall out. It came with two belt clips both they are both the same size. You also cannot tuck your shirt in with this set up.

    So I put the IWB holster together and it is more comfortable than all my other Alien Gear holster are. They need to make C clips for this model. (Posted on 7/22/2017)

    I really do like this holser. I love the amount of options you have for carrying, apparently with more coming in the future. Just one problem though, when using the holster in the owb half shell slide configuration you cannot adjust the can't of the holster. I would prefer to use this option in a 20 degree forward "FBI" can't. Maybe Aliengear will make this a possibility on future versions. All in all, this is a good system, just probably won't be my every day holster until this can addressed. (Posted on 7/22/2017)

    Exactly as promised -- a totally modular system! A tip -- buy the extra shell as another reviewer suggested. That way you can have two complete holsters ready without having to change a thing. I have the Appendex and IWB ones setup this way, since I already have a clamp/belt holster from another company. Now, if you wanted to have all of them all the time, buy two extra shells. Then there's no reconfiguring necessary. (Posted on 7/21/2017)

    Most comfortable and versatile holster I've ever worn! Review by Victor
    Quality

    This holster modular system is by far the most comfortable holster I've ever worn. I carry often, and have tried a number of holsters from a variety of brands. This entire system surpasses them all.

    I've mostly carried IWB, and this holster took zero break-in time. The material is comfortable and breathable. The plastic (of some sort) is extremely durable. I've been following Alien Gear for some time, and finally pulled the trigger. I do not regret this purchase one bit. This holster (and the ShapeShift system as a whole) is a luxury class in the league of holsters.

    The ShapeShift seems like it may be overwhelming at first. But the included manuals make everything so simple. 15 minutes of reading and changing the holster carry options out through one repetition and I was set.

    I've never written an online review for a product. But this system pushed me to write one. If you're up in the air on purchasing this system, just do it. And with Alien Gear's 30-Day Test Drive, as well as their Forever Warranty, you have nothing to lose! (Posted on 7/20/2017)

    WOW - what a great system. I was a little overwhelmed when I first opened the box with all of the parts in the box. But after spending time reading the instructions I spent about an hour applying the instructions. After that, I can change holster configurations in just a couple of minutes or less and know how to use each part in the box. This is by far the greatest holster innovation ever! For a nominal cost you get various holsters you can change out quickly depending on your choice of carry for the day! I highly recommend the ShapeShift Modular System.

    I was skeptical about getting the shape shift. After my short wait it finally came out on the market. I'm so glade I bought the starter kit and extra shell for my Glock . It is the most compact and very comfortable. Easy to assemble and switching it around is not hard. I love a full shell for conceal carry but after trying the shape shift and using it it has Won me over with it's easy to do abilities and slimming design you can't even tell it's on. I was constantly checking to make sure it was still their. The gun retention features are great as well. If you have not purchased one I strongly suggest that you buy one.



    Thanks Alien Gear for this awesome design and comfortability of this holster can't wait for the ankle holsters and the rest of this line to come out.

    I have had my Shape Shift for my Ruger SR9c for about a week now. Although I am still waiting on my permit to come in (Illinois resident) I have worn it around the house and yard to get a feel for which configurations work best under different circumstances. For $100, getting 4 holsters in one package is a value that cannot be beat. BUT, there are two things I wish would be slightly better.

    For starters, I wish that the AIWB configuration had adjustable ride height and a tuckable option. These are things I think could be solved by producing different types of clips. However, it is not detrimental to me given that I have another holster that I can use when deeper concealment is absolutely necessary.

    Also, the full shell configuration for the paddle is almost useless to me as there is no open carry in Illinois and I would prefer not to carry around the house in a manner that I would not in public. With that said, the free desk/vehicle mount that is included is also not of any use to me as I am not going to go through the song and dance of changing the system over (wouldnt be that bad even if I did) just to mount it up in my car for a 15 minute-2 hour drive. If the paddle configuration could be worn concealed, then this would be much much better and also make it easer to start packing when I get into the car leaving work.

    All in all, even with my two (minor) grips I have, I still find the Shape Shift to be of exceptional value and glad I held out on buying any holsters until this came out. I still give 5 starts since I can see the value for others who are able to use the paddle much more than I would be able to. I cannot wait until other configurations beyond the starter kit come out and are up for sale. (Posted on 7/7/2017)

    A great purchase decision. First the order arrived quickly (pre ordered a new product) and was nicely packaged with clear instructions and all parts as well as spare parts. The interchangeability is a brilliant concept. Change from IWB to AWB to OWB in moments once you understand the process, which the wife figured out quickly, since it is for her use. I have used the Cloak 2 and Cloak 3 for two years and thought I was satisfied. Now I know I am satisfied with the new Shape Shift system. And it IS a system. I will be ordering the Shape Shift system for my handguns as soon as the correct models are available.
