1911 - 5 inch ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
Alien Gear's ShapeShift 1911 IWB holster is the pinnacle of holster evolution, as this holster model will allow you to comfortably conceal one of the most popular full-size pistols for this application. The slim nature of the 1911 pistol have made it one of the most popular fighting handguns for concealed carry, and this holster will let you do it.

It will also do so better than many other 1911 inside the waistband holsters on the market.

Common failing points of many other 1911 concealed carry holsters are a lack of comfort, adjustability, and the lack of adjustable retention. There's always that one detail left out, that one attribute that's shorted to get a product out there by other holster makers. We're here to change that.

First notice the backer. The back pad is neoprene, which cushions but also repels moisture - keeping the holster dry. In the middle is a core of spring steel, which helps anchor the holster to you when fastened to your waist and aids retention. The top surface is a textured fabric that helps hold the gun but won't touch the finish.

The belt clips are also adjustable for ride height and grip cant. You can set the holster to low, mid or high ride heights at your leisure, and adjust the cant angle to your preference as well. If you like the FBI cant, this holster will do it. It can also be set to a nearly straight drop if you'd rather have that.

With installation of the trigger guard retention bar, you can also set the passive retention level to precisely your desired setting. Get that perfect draw that other holsters just don't quite have, and carry with confidence.

The ShapeShift 1911 IWB holster also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive in the business.

You can return the holster for a refund if unsatisfied up to 30 days after getting it. We think you won't want to take it off.

We also cover the holster with a lifetime warranty. Any issue that arises will be fixed or the holster will be replaced as long as you have it.

Take this holster to your pistol. You may wonder why you carried with anything else.

It is just what I expected from Alien Gear, Thoughtful design, very ergonomic, , and not too heavy, or at all cumbersome. It does a very good job holding, and hiding a 1911. I'm well pleased with it. . (Posted on 8/2/2020)

Phenomenal holster. Easy and quick to draw from. Best I've seen/used. The holster was marked a month for delivery (which was disappointing) but presently surprised when it arrived in half the time. No complaints and would order more. (Posted on 8/1/2020)
Great holster Review by Rob Maupin

This is a great holster and very comfortable. It can be a pain getting it on though. I’m a bigger guy so I needed a holster that doesn’t bother me when I get up and down. This is that holster. But I have found the easiest way to put it on and put it on my pants first then put my pants on. It a big deal and it doesn’t move or ride up my back. It stays close to the body during a jog or activity. I would recommend this holster to anyone. (Posted on 7/29/2020)

So I like the holster itself it fits my carry gun it fits against my hip it conceals really well and it BREATHES so I'm really pleased with the quality of the product itself however it did have a cross threaded screw/nut it was a pain to get out and it probably should have been caught by quality control before it got packaged the other complaint I have us the instructions are really vaguely worded and the pictures dont help so if you want to set yours up in the other configurations and cant figure it out youtube does have videos to help better than the paper it comes with. Overall it's a good product and I think its gonna be a great EDC holster (Posted on 7/20/2020)

I like the holster. Trying it out but the retention part doesn’t seem to hold it as tight as I like. The seller sent it in an envelope and the package was crushed. Shoulda been in a box instead... (Posted on 7/20/2020)

No R&D done Weapon will not fit Review by Greg

My weapon has Red Dot sights, therefore it will not lock into the holster without actuating the slide. NO THANK YOU!!
A simple fix, reduce the amount of plastic by 1./4 inch or less or hire better engineers.
If my weapon had fit I would have given 5 stars across the board, it doesn't fit so 1's .
I did not even actuate the warranty. (Posted on 7/16/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hey Greg, we are sorry to hear that your holster does not accommodate your red dot sight. Currently our R&D team is very hard at work to provide more red dot options and if it truly was as easy of a fix as just removing some material to make your optic fit we would. Please reach out to us though as we will happily work with you to find a holster that fits your needs and make things right.
