1911 - 5 inch ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
Arguably, there are few holster and gun combos as a 1911 in a 1911 belt slide OWB holster. So many leather holsters have been made and sold in this configuration that they are surely beyond counting. Why is that? They make carrying the 1911 easy, and they work.

Well, they work up to a point. There are a few things the traditional 1911 OWB holster falters at, however.

First, not all are supremely comfortable. Not all have adjustable retention and leather loses its tight retention after a few years - or you have to rely on a thumb break, which not everyone prefers to carry with. Alien Gear's ShapeShift 1911 OWB holster was designed to change what you could expect from such a holster.

First, enjoy the adjustable retention as the ShapeShift retention bar allows you to dial in your precise preferred retention force. Get the perfect draw.

You're also not likely to find a holster that carries as comfortably. The neoprene backer and spring steel core anchor the holster where it's secured on the belt line, but cushion the wearer rather than dig into the side.

You can also look forward to easy OWB concealment. Some wearers may find this holster conceals under an untucked shirt, and others might find an unbuttoned flannel or light outerwear is all that's needed to keep this holster deeply concealed. OWB concealment with a full-size pistol can be complicated, but is easy and incredibly comfortable with the ShapeShift.

Like our other holsters, the 1911 belt slide OWB hoslter comes with our Iron-Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive guarantees in the industry.

Take the first month of ownership to wear the holster and evaluate it. If, for any reason, you aren't satisfied with it, you can return it for a refund during that time period. We don't think you'll want to take it off.

You can also rest easy with the knowledge that the ShapeShift comes with a lifetime warranty. Should an issue arise, no matter how it happens, we will fix the problem or we will send you a brand new holster as long as you own it.

Are you ready for the next stage of holster evolution?
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Works for me... Review by Medic 78

I purchased the Shapeshift OWB Slider Holster and the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster to see how they would work for me. I am a paraplegic and use a wheelchair for mobility. My fanny pack is what I had been using to carry my weapon but never felt comfortable not having my gun on my person. The Slide Holster is carried on my right hip at 3:30 position. All I need to do is lean to the left to unholster my Glock. I'm quite pleased at how comfortable it is. As to the Shoulder Holster, a review will be forthcoming after I break it in. An additional benefit to the Shapeshift system is that I was able to order different shells for the other Glocks I own. Thanks to the customer service people that I spoke with. They were most helpful. (Posted on 2/24/2020)

Great holster, just had a three hour drive and couldn’t even feel it. I use it for HKVP 9. I’m 6’4” 300 pounds. The gun prints very bad. The holster slides don’t fit between my 5.11 belt loops so I had to skip a loop which is not good when packing. I blame the 5.11’s more than the holster. (Posted on 11/18/2019)
