Glock 23 AIWB Holster


There aren't too many appendix carry holsters that seem to have much thought behind them in terms of design, which is what Alien Gear set out to fix with the ShapeShift Glock 23 AIWB holster.

It's easy to understand the appeal of appendix carry. The ease of deployment and the ease of concealment are hard to deny. The weak point, of course, is always the holster and a lot of Glock 23 appendix holster makers seem to think that you need to compromise somewhere. For instance, they won't build in adjustable retention or adjustable cant angle, or they skimp on comfort.

Alien Gear doesn't do compromise. Instead the ShapeShift Glock 23 IWB appendix holster has been designed to give you adjustability and comfort like no other.

The backing pad that the ShapeShift shell attaches to has a neoprene back pad, cushioning you while you wear it but repelling moisture. The core of the backing pad is a thin sheet of spring steel. This ensures you'll never feel the gun through the holster, but also flexes when the pistol is inserted and aids in retention. The top layer is a high-drag textured fabric that helps hold your gun but won't touch the finish.

Unlike many other hybrid holsters, the ShapeShift Glock 23 inside the waistband holster has as full wrap of the trigger guard. You can also install the included passive retention bar and dial in the precise retention setting you prefer.

Along with the features, you get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. This includes:

A 30-Day Test Drive: take the first month of ownership to wear your holster, conceal with it, carry with it and see if it's the holster you had in mind. If not, contact us before the first 30 days of ownership is over, and we'll buy the holster back.

Lifetime Warranty: so long as you own this holster, it's fully warrantied. Our comprehensive warranty covers any issue that may arise with the holster. However it happens, whatever it is, if there is a problem with it we will fix it...or we will send you a brand new holster.

Enter a whole new universe of comfortable carry.

Horrible holster, waste of money. Review by Justin
Quality

Value
I wish I didn't waste my money on this holster. It is bulky, uncomfortable, and does not conceal even in the slightest. My P365 prints like no tomorrow even with the flush fit magazine. Buy this holster if you want everyone to know you are "concealing". Save your money and head on over to a competitor. Incredibly comfortable and even with extended magazines, you can't tell I'm carrying. Alien gear probably won't publish this review but you have been warned! (Posted on 6/29/2020)
NOT for the skinny guy... Review by John
Quality

So I purchased the Shape Shifter kit. I read multiple reviews from people saying it conceals perfectly for people of all body weights, shapes, and sizes. Not the case...Yes, I'm a skinny guy, but this thing does not conceal AT ALL. If anything, it makes it more noticeable. Looks like I'm pregnant. You've got about 2-3 inches of material that is under your waistline. Would not recommend for skinny guys. (Posted on 6/27/2020)
ALWAYS get premium shipping Review by Mickey

I've bought AG holsters before and their product is top notch. I'm happy to see good quality made stuff made here at HOME, USA. However, if you do buy this specific item or anything else from AG, just get premium shipping. I choose standard shipping and the USPS is taking two weeks to get it to me! It left AG's facility two weeks ago and was reprioritized so I basically "get it when I get it". Annoying. Always go UPS or FedEX. Other than that, I cant wait for my gear! :D I know it'll be solid and work just the way I need it to. (Posted on 5/18/2020)

Too Bulky for IWB Carry Review by Mike
Quality

I'm not a small person, but while I like the quality of the Holster, it's hard to get in and out of your waist because of all the "plastic" on this thing. I want a simple holster that holds the gun in, and lets you put it on easily. This thing is 2" thick? (Posted on 3/21/2020)
Perfect fit Review by Kenneth

I bought the IWB for my Sig Sauer P365, it fits like a glove and is very comfortable, love the backing material. No more hard kydek against my skin. It does seem a bit larger than my kydek but is hardly noticeable and very concealable, as with all new things you will get use to any difference. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 3/4/2020)

I Hate This Thing Review by Brandon

I hate this holster more than I can possibly explain. for the price would have expected far more options to adjust the cant and where it rides. Would not buy again and do not recommend for any one that wants to be able to adjust the cant of the gun. your only option is it sitting straight down and that's not what I was wanting.

Love the shapeshift system Review by Michael

Just received my shapeshift appendix holster today.
I ordered the system years ago for my Glock 19 and have purchased shells for others guns. I hear some thoughts of it being bulky and I can see that point but for myself its perfect. I can conceal easily all my guns even in the summer. The convenience along with the comfort is perfect for my body type. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 9/9/2019)
RIDES TOO HIGH Review by 22Nout
Quality
Price
Value
I bought this because my current IWB holster has a metal belt clip that would keep eating my shirts. Saw the plastic belt clip and said, "this would work" I'll start by saying that this holster is of high quality. The way AG engineered this holster is next to perfection. My only complaint is that for my G26 it rides too high causing it not to be so concealed as I would want it to be. When I would sit, it would stick out so much that even my kids notice it when they never did before with my other generic IWB holster - but as mentioned, that generic one had a metal belt clip. I know this holster is advertised as an appendix holster but I moved the holster to the 3 o'clock position and it sits better there. However, now it's even more noticeable thus, not very concealable unless I'm wearing a shirt twice my size. I did 22 years as a cop and mostly as an undercover, I'm well versed in concealing a gun. If you're looking for conceal-ability, this is not the holster for you. Though, I will add, that my gun feels more secure in this holster then in my other generic IWB holster. (Posted on 8/15/2019)
