IWB Concealed Carry Holster (Inside the Waistband)

With its innovative design, the ShapeShift IWB Holster moves past the performance of previous IWB concealed carry holsters. This revolutionary IWB holster features perforated CoolVent Neoprene, which delivers enhanced breathability and superior comfort to the carrier. Using a single mounting point, the ShapeShift IWB Holster is also far more flexible than any previous holster model. All bulk has been cut, leaving only what’s necessary to make the most comfortable, concealable IWB holster on the planet.

Taking your gun holster from your body to virtually any surface has never been easier. With the quick release paddle holster system, you can unclip your holster from the paddle and transfer it to the ShapeShift Holster Mount. Experience these improvements for yourself!

OWB Belt Slide (Outside the Waistband)

Our latest OWB Slide offers enhanced comfort and superior flexibility.

An innovative low profile design also allows the holster to conform to your side for improved concealability. OWB concealed carry will never be more comfortable than with the ShapeShift belt slide OWB holster. It rides high and tight on the beltline, concealing with minimal layers and wearing with impeccable comfort.

Improved Concealed Carry Comfort

The vented neoprene hybrid holster base allows the backer to breathe, circulating air and wicking away moisture while you carry. As this is the only point of contact for holster and the pistol, it is able to flex and conform to any body type, shape or contour like it was tailored for you.

Easy-to-Use Modular Holster System

Transition the ShapeShift from one carry holster to another with ease. All you need to is disconnect the holster shell from one backer and add it to the one you wish to use. That's how easy it is to adapt and change from one carry form to another.

Enhanced Holster Concealment

The innovative trigger guard "half-shell" allows us to lower the profile of the ShapeShift IWB concealed carry holster configurations. The holster's overall area has been drastically reduced as well, slimming the holster and making it far less intrusive than other IWB concealment designs.

Custom Holster Retention

You can adjust the ShapeShift gun holster retention for extra security and the draw you've always wished you had. The included Adjustable Retention Unit allows you to tighten or loosen the tension holding your holstered pistol to the exact setting you desire.
