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.

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

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)
