ShapeShift Backpack Holster

$49.88


With an ultra-secure design and heavy-duty construction, the ShapeShift Backpack Holster is prepared for any adventure.

The Backpack Holster clips on to the straps of your backpack, allowing you quick and easy access to your holstered firearm when hunting, hiking, camping, and more.

This holster also works on a variety of straps such as duffle bags and range bags.

The tactical clamp wraps around the strap securely, anchoring the holster in place. This clamp is backed with a ribbed texture that provides grip and prevents any movement of the holster, so it stays right where you locked it on your strap.

You can depend on the ShapeShift Backpack holster for the utmost security; several features make it a level II retention holster.

The retention of the holster revolves around the injection molded Shift Shell, the hard 3-D casings that contain the firearm. Because the Shift Shells are custom made, your firearm clicks perfectly into place. The adjustable retention unit can be adjusted to your preference.

The holster fully covers the firearm’s trigger for added protection, and an optional thumb release provides second level of security.

The ShapeShift Backpack Holster is compatible with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System, and allows for quick shifts to other holsters with the push of a button. Switch to the OWB Paddle Holster, MOLLE, Drop Leg, Holster Mount, and more. Also, adjust your cant in 22° increments of 360° with the rotating adapter to find your perfect draw angle.

You can expect years of reliability out of this holster; we guarantee this with a Forever Warranty. If you find it’s not for you, return it with our 30-Day Test Drive.

Alien Gear Holsters are made proudly in the U.S.A.

Nice Backpacking gun holster with flexible mounting options Review by Bob Smith
Quality

Great holster for backpacking when a belt or hip holster will not work. Flexible mounting of the holster on the backpack strap was good. Adjustment of the holster using the ShapeShift adjustment hardware was fabulous. Using a Glock 23, so being able to adjust location, angle and location of the 'holster system' was critical when running a 60-pound backback over three days. (Posted on 10/21/2020)
Don't waste your time & money Review by David
Quality

Poor design and cheap materials. The attachment could barely handle the width & thickness of your toddler's Hello Kitty backpack strap. The shape shift attachment point, which is not used in this application so is entirely unnecessary, would dig into your chest if you could ever actually attach it to a Camelbak or backpack strap. The attachment point is off center so the weight of the gun would torque the gun/holster/strap (if you could ever attach it). The plastic, hardware, and build is cheap/flimsy. (Posted on 9/19/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello David, thank you for the feedback and we do apologize for the strap fitment on this holster. These straps are adjustable to fit on a variety of straps such as duffle bags and range bags, if you are needing assistance with how to adjust the straps on this please reach out, we are definitely here to help. All these parts are made from the same injection molded material. This material is very strong and can handle quite a bit of force. We do want to make things right for you. Please reach out if you have questions!

Rugged, Simple, Perfect! Review by Tim

I purchased the backpack holster in preparation of a 45 mile backpacking trip into the Selway- Bitterroot National forest in Montana and Idaho. For the drive West from Ohio I used my OWB Shapeshift holster, which was comfortable and easily concealed for the entire drive. I then switched the shell to hook onto the backpack holster when we arrived.

The holster mounts quickly and easily to the straps of my backpack, but it did take a little bit of time to find a comfortable location where the plastic wouldn't dig into my shoulder. While hiking my pistol stayed in position with no retention issues whatsoever. When we would stop hiking I removed the holster from my pack (leaving the pack mount on the shoulder strap), and would hook the holster to the shapeshift paddle to keep the pistol on my hip. Other guys in my party carried using shoulder, hip and pocket holsters, and all were intriged/jealous with the simplicity and ease of use of this setup.

This holster combo was the perfect setup for a long tough hike in very rugged terrain. I plan to use this rig on all future hikes, and will carry this way while hunting as well. Great product which was well designed and executed perfectly!

I've already purchased a 2nd shapeshift shell (5" 1911 & M&P 45 Shield) and will be buying more for other guns. (Posted on 8/14/2020)
Perfect for hiking Review by calvin

Great product for hiking. Fit my Walther Tac 4. Had to use a spade drill to allott for the 4.6 barrel tho... minimum discomfort while hiking. Attached to my stomach strap that is 4.5 tall. 3/4 in thick padding... works out well. No props to alien gear, never got back to me about my? About 4.6 inch barrel, but it worked out. Gotta keep the thumb release clean, dust slows action (Posted on 7/7/2020)

Fantastic product very well made perfect fit.
my first order had an error and with a simple phone call Alien Gear made everything right and expedited my order. By far the modular holster system is fantastic and feels rugged. I matched this holster with the molle kit and I have no fear that anything will break nor come loose. (Posted on 6/29/2020)
Been looking for a back pack holster for some time Review by Jim Bob
Quality

I've been searching for a back pack holster for years, it is great to have found one. I do have two minor dislikes with this holster. First is the manner in which it attaches to the strap or belt, I wish it had a little more adjustment so that it would fit my day pack waist belt. I can get it on the belt, but not where I would like it to be. I don't want to shoulder carry while I'm fly fishing the back country.
Second the holster sits out fairly far on my waist, I would rather it hugged in tighter so it was more out of the way but the gun would be still easy to get to.
It's a good holster, but it's still not exactly what I need, but I will keep it. (Posted on 5/19/2020)
