1911 AIWB Holster

There are 1911 AIWB holster designs that can conceal well, but aren't that comfortable. There are some that are comfortable, but don't conceal too well. Some pretty much have to be worn as they come from the factory, and some can be adjusted by the wearer.

One of the most common failings with 1911 appendix holsters is comfort. Carrying a stout pistol like a Government frame requires a decent holster to hold it and where many appendix holster fall down is that the material doesn't feel comfortable once placed in the waistband and the belt tightened.

Alien Gear's ShapeShift 1911 appendix IWB holster has been designed to address that, from the ground up. Instead of a hard pancake holster, we employ the hybrid holster design to accentuate comfort while carrying.

The backer is comprised of multiple layers of material, designed to carry comfortably while still providing sufficient support for your pistol. The backlayer is closed-cell neoprene, which cushions you while wear it and repels sweat and other moisture to keep the holster dry. The middle layer is spring steel, which flexes while being worn to keep the gun secured but also to firmly anchor the holster to the wearer. The top layer is a durable textured fabric that helps hold the gun but won't mar the finish.

The ShapeShift retention bar can also be added to the holster, and you can dial in the precise retention setting you want. Set the draw to exactly how you want it, not how the holster design dictates.

The ShapeShift 1911 AIWB holster also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. This includes a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period. Try out the holster. Wear it, conceal it, go about your business as normal. If it isn't to your liking, contact us before the end of the first month of ownership and we'll arrange a full refund.

We also extend a comprehensive lifetime warranty. So long as you own the holster, we will fix any issue or send you a new one.

It's a whole new form of 1911 appendix carry holster.
