Glock - 23 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 23 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


NOTE: Will NOT accommodate the Gen 5 Glock 23.
The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

With the firepower of the .40 S&W round in a compact frame, the Glock 23 is one of the most versatile firearms available; why shouldn't you expect the same from a Glock 23 holster? The 23 is perfectly suited to use as a concealed carry gun, and can also be utilized as a carry gun in the backcountry, but using this pistol in all those roles would require multiple holsters.

Unless a better way of making holsters emerged. Unless someone created a holster system capable of working as a Glock 23 concealed carry holster and open carry holster. If someone created a holster system that used passive and active retention, each selectable when the user wanted.

Alien Gear has done just that, with the ShapeShift. It isn't a mere holster; it's an entire carry system, capable of changing configuration in moments to allow the user to carry in any manner they see fit. The core of the ShapeShift is the shell system, which can be attached to any of the included backing platforms and belt attachments. The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards, which can also be assembled together for a full-wrap durable polymer pancake configuration.

Want to carry concealed with a traditional Glock 23 IWB holster? The ShapeShift IWB holster configuration conceals comfortably and easily, with the same backing system as our award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster, but streamlined for even easier wear. Just like the 3.0, ride height and cant angle are adjustable.

Prefer appendix carry? Enter Alien Gear's first appendix carry holster. Use the smaller backer with the holster shell and the appendix IWB clip for a Glock 23 appendix carry holster more comfortable and adjustable than any other on the market.

If you like to concealed OWB, under an untucked shirt or light outerwear, the ShapeShift can also be assembled into a high-ride Glock 23 belt slide OWB holster.

You can also wear the ShapeShift as a Glock 23 paddle holster, with passive or active retention..or both if so desired. In this configuration, the ShapeShift is a fully functional retention holster.

Retention is completely customizable, as is cant angle, and the ShapeShift is compatible with our Cloak Dock holster mount systems.

You also get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period during which you can wear and evaluate the ShapeShift Glock 23 holster. If, during the first 30 days of ownership, you are unsatisfied, you can contact us for a full refund.

The ShapeShift also comes with a comprehensive lifetime warranty. Any issue that should arise with the ShapeShift, regardless of how it happens, we will fix it or give you a brand new holster. For as long as you own it.

You may never want to carry with anything else.

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)
