1911 - 5 inch ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

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.

I am surprised Review by Cory
So long story short im not a big guy but this iwb holster for my 5" 1911 is really comfortable and hides pretty well. I imprint sometimes ( but it's because im trying to conceal a full size 1911) I could only imagine how comfortable and awesome this holster would be if I had a actual concealable pistol. 5 stars all the way (Posted on 8/30/2018)
