Glock - 22 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

Glock 22 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


NOTE: Will NOT accommodate the Gen 5 Glock 22.
The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

The ShapeShift Glock 22 Core Carry Pack is designed to change what you can expect from a holster. It isn't a holster like the other ones in your holster drawer; it's a modular carry system, designed to change configuration so you can carry exactly how you want to, when you want to. The design of the ShapeShift is such that you can alter the form of the holster in seconds, switching nearly seamlessly between holster configurations.

No other Glock 22 gun holster can offer you the same kind of versatility of the ShapeShift.

How the ShapeShift works is the shell system, which was devised after two years of research and development. Part of that development is a friction-locking frame rail on the outside of the shell, which locks into the docking rail on the provided holster backers or can lock with a second ShapeShift shell for a full-wrap pancake holster configuration.

Simply choose which holster configuration you want. You can also install the included retention bar, which can be dialed to precisely the retention setting you desire.

If you want to conceal a Glock 22 inside the waistband, dock the ShapeShift shell with the large backer. This backer has the traditional winged IWB design, and is similar to our award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster as it has the same neoprene backpad and spring steel core. Just like our other IWB holsters, the belt clips are adjustable for ride height and cant. However, it has been streamlined for even greater comfort, and you'll notice the difference once you tuck it in.

Or, if you would rather carry in a Glock 22 AIWB holster, attach the shell to the smaller backer and install the appendix carry belt clip. The clip can be adjusted for cant angle, in case you need a forward cant carrying closer to the strong side front pocket or a negative cant if you prefer to appendix carry on the weak side.

You can also attach the belt slide clips to the smaller backer for a high riding belt slide Glock 22 OWB holster. This holster configuration carries outside the waistband, but rides high and tight to the wearer and conceals easily under light outerwear.

However, you can also attach the two half-shells for a pancake-style holster made from ultra-durable polymer that will never break, warp or fray under normal conditions. Insert the belt clip attachment, and deploy as a Glock 22 paddle holster or attach the belt slide for use as a belt slide. In this configuration, an active retention device can be attached to the ShapeShift so it can be used as a Glock 22 retention holster.

The ShapeShift also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. This includes a 30-day Test Drive trial period, during which you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied. We will buy it back from you during the first month of ownership.

We also give you a lifetime warranty. If anything at all should go wrong with the holster, regardless of how it happens, we will fix the holster or send you a brand new one.

Are you ready for the next phase of holster evolution?

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

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)
