Glock 17 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack by Alien Gear Holsters



The Glock 17 is one of the most popular pistols of all time, and is capable of serving many needs - a Glock 17 holster should be capable of doing the same. The Alien Gear ShapeShift Glock 17 holster is designed to do just that.

The 17 is one of the few full-size guns that is easily concealed, and the ShapeShift can be easily configured as a Glock 17 concealed carry holster - both in and outside the waistband, on the hip or in the appendix position. The 17 is also widely employed as a service pistol, and the ShapeShift can likewise be worn as an easy concealing OWB holster and paddle holster. This Glock 17 holster is compatible with all Glock generations, from the original Glock 17 all the way through to Gen 5.

Alien Gear spent two years designing this holster to be able to carry in multiple styles without compromising one iota in the way of retention, fit or concealability.

First and foremost is the shell system. You get two half-shells, one right and one left, that cover the slide and the trigger guard. There are also two trigger guards, one for standard half-shell carry and another set up for belt slide carry. The half-shells and trigger guards fit together by means of a patented friction-locking rail system. Once put together, they don't come apart unless you mean them to, especially once you engage the twist lock. From there, you determine the manner in which you carry.

We include several different belt attachments and two backing pads with your Glock 17 carry holster system.

For a traditional Glock 17 IWB holster, attach a full shell and trigger guard shell to the larger backer, which is made from the same materials - neoprene backer, steel core and Alien Skin top surface - as our Cloak Tuck 3.0. Just like the 3.0, it can be adjusted for grip cant and ride height, and is compatible with our IWB Cloak Dock holster mount.

If you prefer a Glock 17 appendix holster, attach the the shells to the smaller backer and install the larger belt clip.

There are also two possible Glock 17 OWB holster configurations. One - which uses the smaller backer and the belt slide clips - is fantastic for OWB concealed carry as a high-riding belt slide, and the other is our strongest holster design to date.

Attach the two half-shells together, and then install the included paddle attachment. This gives you a Glock 17 paddle holster.

Retention is adjustable with the ShapeShift. There are three included passive retention bars, which instal in the trigger guard half shells for light, medium or heavy passive retention. You can also install and use the thumb release, the finger lock or both with the paddle holster configuration, for a Glock 17 retention holster that approaches Level III retention.

We set out to change what you can expect from a holster, but not our guarantee - as Alien Gear's is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. First, you get the first 30 days after purchase to wear your holster and determine if it really is the holster you desired. If not, contact us and we will arrange a refund. We will buy the holster back during the first 30 days if you don't like it.

We also give you a lifetime warranty on the holster. Whatever goes wrong, we will fix it or replace the holster outright regardless if it's due to a manufacturing defect or damage sustained during the course of normal or abnormal wear. As long as you own it.

This may be the last holster you ever have to buy.

The ONLY issue I have, is that there is no adjustable carry height with the core carry pack, specifically for the paddle/belt loop attachments. I myself have monkey like long arms, and the carry height is a bit....too high (Posted on 1/14/2021)
Single use not big guy friendly Review by Rick

I purchased this for my 1911 in hopes I could go from holster to vehicle mount, not the case it is one carry form and thats it. Also its not meant for a big guy, only can carry external but it sticks out so far its useless for concealed. Bad buy.. very rigid plastic doesn't form to hip at all. (Posted on 1/2/2021)
Not happy Review by disappointed
Quality

Very disappointed with the comfort of the IWB/OWB holsters. To bulky, and very noticeable unless you're wearing a jacket. I tried every configuration supplied and all were uncomfortable and bulky. Every time I sat down or stood up I had to readjust the holster (IWB&OWB) just to find a spot that was less uncomfortable. I position the holsters in many different spots, but none worked or made me feel comfortable. I bought these for my SIG P365, which is a small carry gun. Direction were a little confusing and not up to date (color would help), but once I figured it out, still wasn't satisfied. I contacted customer support and was given a return slip to fill out, which I did and sent back for a refund. That cost me $20 to ship back; Alien should stand behind their product and send me a prepaid mailing label. (Posted on 12/28/2020)

I am very happy with my new holsters !! Quality and price are great, after one month the value is well worth the price. One product with 3 options, hope I don't wear it out before I pick a favorite position. (Posted on 12/23/2020)
Very comfortable and well made Review by Trucker Tim
Quality

As a flatbed truck driver I do a lot of load securement, so I'm always lifting, bending, climbing, squatting and twisting. Very physical work! I'm also sitting in the driver's seat for hours at a time. I sometimes put in 12-14 hour days. I tried a bunch of different holsters I borrowed from my NRA training instructor but couldn't find anything I really liked. My buddy Brian (a longtime CCW holder whose advice re:firearms I always trust) showed me his Shapeshifter holster and told me to look at Aliengear. I ordered one and I've been wearing my IWB Shapeshifter with my Walther PPS M2 for a couple months now. It's so comfortable I hardly notice it. It has a very smooth draw, stays very secure, doesn't dig into my side and provides excellent concealment. I wore it for a whole day running errands with my wife and she couldn't tell I was carrying. I wore right out of the box without having to do any adjustments. Excellent holster, best I ever had! Highly recommend it. (Posted on 12/20/2020)
