Alien Gear ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
Alien Gear Holsters has discovered the answer for the perfect belt slide holster. The ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster will meet your needs and go above and beyond to provide an elite carrying experience.

The holster’s compatibility with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System provides limitless carry options. With just a few additional parts, you can effortlessly shift from one carry configuration to the next to suit your lifestyle.

Whether carrying open or concealed, the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster has a super slim design that can achieve both.

The shift shell is unique in that it attaches to the holster on a single mounting point. This allows the holster to bend with the belt and hug the waistline, which significantly enhances comfort and reduces printing.

Another key feature of the ShapeShift OWB Slide is its neoprene backing. The soft, sweat-resistant neoprene prevents the firearm from pushing uncomfortably into the body during any movement, and the backer’s shape helps the carrier holster their firearm without catching on clothing.

Other belt slide holsters are made with leather and other inferior materials. These holster options tend to sag over time, reducing the effectiveness of the holster. The belt slide of the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster is made of a premium engineered polymer that won’t warp over time, staying rigid for a dependable draw.

The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is available for right and left-handed carriers.

Alien Gear Holsters are made only in the USA. The Shapeshift Modular Holster System is proudly backed by a Forever Warranty—forever, forever. It also includes a 30-Day Test Drive.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

I've had mine for over a year now and love it. I'm a weapons trainer and recommend these to my students. (Posted on 2/17/2019)
Some improvement needed Review by Tim W

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
very good concealment Review by JJ

i have 2 Alien IWBs and I recently bought the OWB slide for concealed carry during winter months wearing layers of clothing and heavy gloves. The IWB holsters are good but just too difficult for me to use in heavy winter clothing. The OWB Slide works quite well. Easy concealment under a jacket even with a full size handgun and much easier to deploy in heavy clothing and gloves. Works very well for me. (Posted on 12/4/2018)
feels great Review by Dean

It feels great on your body with the soft padding and that is where it ends. The holster has adjusting screws that do nothing except for change the angle of the pad and not the angle of your gun. The holster belt loops are connected to the holster making it so you can not tilt the holster forward. This holster makes your gun stick out more so forget it being concealed under your shirt.

One thing Review by Jay1975

I really like this holster, but I just wish there was another belt loop option that would allow for a forward cant option for larger framed guns. As it is, this will be my winter holster, but I still will choose the Alien gear Shapeshift over any of my other holsters I have sitting in the closet now. (Posted on 8/14/2018)
Good company, poor product. Review by Karl

I bought the shapeshifter starter package, excited at the possibility of being able to carry so many different ways with one holster. That being said...sometimes you are better off being really great at one thing instead of being mediocre at a bunch of things. The belt slide was uncomfortable, and didn't form to my body, the paddle stuck out way too far, the iwb was okay, the aiwb was way too bulky and printed terribly. All of that being said, the company was great, shipping was prompt, and they returned my money no questions asked. (Posted on 8/5/2018)
I'm buying 3 more for my other guns Review by Howie

I am an outside carry guy, sometimes open sometimes concealed. I received my holster this morning 5 days ahead of scheduled delivery and have not taken it off. Fantastic holster, rides nice and high, soft lining against toward my skin, ridiculously comfortable, even while leaning forward sitting down texting, or in the car. I have several handguns and I am buying one for each gun. My wife and I both carry and we trade out our guns on occasion. There is no reason to spend more and get less. This a superior American product, backed by a company that knows what it's doing. Thank you, please feel free to use this review, and the others that will be forth coming. (Posted on 8/1/2018)
