1911 - 5 inch ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
They said no one would ever carry with a 1911 ankle holster. It's just too ridiculous. No one would carry that gun on an ankle. It's just too much gun for ankle carry.

You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

You definitely can ankle carry a 1911, it just requires the right kind of ankle holster, which is what Alien Gear set out to create: an ankle holster that could carry any gun, including a 1911 Government frame, and do so comfortably, securely and through years of use.

The ShapeShift 1911 Ankle Holster is just such an ankle holster.

Unlike other ankle holsters, our strapping includes an ankle loop. That makes the holster stable horizontally and vertically, allowing larger pistols than the typical snubbies and pocket .380s to be carried in this position.

The strapping is made from our Cool Vent perforated neoprene. This thick, plush material is vastly more comfortable than leather or nylon, while also breathing against the skin and wicking away moisture.

The holster is the ShapeShift shell system, consisting of a full outer shell and trigger guard shell. This completely covers the trigger. Since the ShapeShift is custom molded for the 1911 only, so it fits perfectly out of the packaging and offers better retention than ""universal"" designs you might encounter.

Ride height and holster retention are fully adjustable, so you can dial in the hold and carry position of your choice.

Don't think a 1911 ankle holster is really going to carry well? Take it on a Test Drive. Part of our Iron-Clad Guarantee for this holster is a 30 Day Test Drive trial period, during which you can return the holster for a refund if desired. However, if you keep it, then we also cover the holster with a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty.

It's a shift in what you can expect from an ankle holster.

Great holster for extra small pistols Review by Joshua
Quality

I ordered the Shapeshift Ankle Holster for my PT111 G2, but my pistol was too big for it to be a good way to carry. The holster is well-made, secure in its position and reasonably comfortable to wear, but it will work much better for a smaller pistol. (Posted on 9/14/2019)
Better than not carrying at all Review by Flyboy

First, this ankle holster system works for smaller\thinner firearms. I have a Glock 27 and I will say that is the max size. My Glock 23 is a no go in this setup. And the Glock 27 only works for me in certain dress\casual pants. Regular fit Levis are a no go with the 27. The holster system is well built and some thought went into it. It rides well. With the design, the support tab keeps it from riding down. The velcro straps hold it securely in place. How quick one could draw the firearm is largely going to be how loose your pant leg is. The firearm can be adjusted higher or lower. A lot of good features. I love the entire Shape Shift setup. Ankle holsters of any kind are better than not carrying at all. Just not a quick defense configuration if you need to present your firearm quickly. Practicing will help. (Posted on 8/21/2019)

A good holster but not for me Review by Louie
Quality

Finally an ankle holster that is heading in the right direction. However, I stopped wearing the ankle holster because I found the lower wrap under my heel to be too uncomfortable. At work, I have to wear a suit, dress shoes and socks which may be the reason the ankle holster does not work for me. In short, I found the lower wrap distracting because it feels like a bunched up sock. I'll keep an eye on this product for possible improvements to the lower wrap. (Posted on 5/2/2019)

Excellent ankle holster with one caveat Review by Colby
Quality

I've been using this holster nearly every day for the last seven months and love it. It is comfortable and very secure. The only caveat is that the polymer spine that goes into the pocket has rubbed itself smooth and will squeak as I walk. When I reached out to the Alien Gear team about it they suggested putting talc into the pocket, which worked great for a couple of months but adding more talc is simple (if a bit messy if you're not careful).

I'm returning this holster as I found that I just don't prefer ankle carry. Having said that, this holster is of excellent quality and extremely comfortable. If you're a fan of ankle carry then this is the holster for you! (Posted on 1/1/2019)
Good Holster Review by Grunt162
Quality

Great concept for a modular holster system. Very unique design. I wore it tonight for the first time and I can see that I will need to wear regular socks with the system instead of ankle socks. The gun tends to rub against my skin which irritates my skin (personal preference). I would also prefer that the gun would sit straight up and down versus the rearward cant.

With that being said, it is a good system and it does stay in place and does not move around like my other ankle holster. The gun doesn't pull away from my ankle either. It stays nice and tight against my leg so that it doesn't print as much as others. It appears bulky when you first look at it, but it really isn't.

I will be using this on a regular basis at work. I carry a SIG P365 in the holster.

Overall, I like the holster. (Posted on 12/21/2018)
Great Product Review by rcmedic

The ONLY snag here is that I obviously missed that this is NOT compatible with my integrated Crimson Trace Laser and so renders this holster unusable to me. (Posted on 12/9/2018)
