1911 - 5 inch ShapeShift Drop Leg Holster

91% of 100
Carrying with a 1911 drop leg holster makes carrying a Government frame more comfortable and convenient than you have ever experienced. The grip is repositioned to a natural place to draw from, the weight is taken off the belt and carrying becomes a whole lot more comfortable.

The problem is finding a 1911 drop thigh holster made well enough that you'd WANT to carry with it. Universal holster designs don't offer the best fitment and retention is often nonexistent; you're left with the option of a bad thumb break or no retention at all.

And who wants to carry with a 1911 Government leg holster like that?

We have something else to offer you. A 1911 thigh holster that you can depend on. One that carries comfortably and securely, that will make those days where you open carry around the house, on the trail or in the woods, or at the range a cinch.


Start with the thigh rig itself. We mold the thigh rig platform from a durable polymer blend, unbreakable under normal conditions...and we tried. The thigh straps stretch but hold securely, keeping the platform stationary but without cutting off circulation to your leg. The thigh loop is made from stiff nylon weave, and once it's all strapped up, it can't come undone unless you mean it to.

The thigh rig docks the ShapeShift OWB holster, with a secure docking that won't release unless you want it to. It's adjustable for cant as well, so you can set the grip to the angle you want. Retention is no issue, as the ShapeShift is custom-molded for the 1911. Dial in passive retention to the exact setting you prefer, or add an active retention device for a 1911 retention holster for thigh carry.

You'll also notice additional docking splines. These are compatible with our Cloak Mag Carriers - use single or dual carriers. That gives you up to 4 spare magazines along with your pistol on the thigh rig.

You won't find many thigh carriers that offer you this much versatility.

Nor will you find too many 1911 drop leg holster with a guarantee like Alien Gear's. We give you the first month to wear the holster and see if it's to your satisfaction; return it during that time for a full refund if not. You also get the benefit of a lifetime warranty, so any issue will get fixed or you'll get the thigh holster replaced.
