Glock 17 AIWB Holster



The heart of American craftsmanship is innovation. Make something with your hands, try it out and do it again. Alien Gear's ShapeShift Glock 17 AIWB holster is a product of this industry frame-of-mind —thousands of hours have been spent designing and engineering this holster to be the most comfortable, concealable, durable and adaptable system of concealed carry.

It's a system, because it isn't just one holster. This Glock 17 appendix holster can be reconfigured into any of the available ShapeShift carry methods. Uninstall the backer without any necessary tools and modify it to be, for example, an OWB belt slide.

This Glock 17 holster is compatible with all Glock generations, from the original Glock 17 all the way through to Gen 5.

The appendix carry backer is crafted with specific layers of material. A closed-cell neoprene textile acts as a cushion that reduces the holster's impact on the body and wicks away any moisture from the holster and that Glock 17. Ballistic nylon adds durable reinforcement. A flexible spring steel core reacts and shapes to the body, enclosed by a front layer of a high drag Alien Skin texturized textile.

The backer on this Glock 27 appendix holster is connected to an injection-molded, high-grade polymer shell manufactured to precisely fit the Glock 17. An included, custom retention bar can be installed to control just how tight or loose the draw is, meaning the passive retention is up to you.
The parts holding the low-profile shell together are made of the same polymer that's used in handgun production. They're made to stand the test of time. Though, if something goes wrong, all components are covered under Alien Gear's guaranteed lifetime warranty. Alien Gear will repair or replace the parts.

Try it out for a month. We guarantee a 30-day test drive. If it doesn't quite work, we'll buy it back from you within 30 days.

This Glock 17 holster is a product of time and diligence, made by concealed carriers for concealed carriers.

The benchmark for A/IWB holsters Review by CAJ

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns
Quality

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Best AIWB I've Found Review by Scott
Quality

I have a drawer full of holsters that are just uncomfortable.. I prefer to appendix carry and I couldn't find one that fit my body type, and was all day comfortable. I looked at the Shapeshift AIWB when it first came out and I thought it looked too bulky.

I finally pulled the trigger after the last Kydex I bought, kept digging into my leg when I was seated. I'm sorry, I waited. All day comfort, standing or sitting. It's not too bulky and it fits my S&W Shield like a glove. I could not be more pleased and if you prefer to appendix carry, you have to try one. (Posted on 8/24/2018)
Only one problem Review by Michael

This holster is extremely comfortable and well made. I had an issue with the retention adjustment, called customer service and got a new one free of charge in a couple of days. The only problem that I have is the overall thickness. I got this holster for my g26. I can't conceal this holster at all. So it sits in the drawer and never gets worn. (Posted on 8/14/2018)
