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


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.

So many options with the core carry pack. This company is the best and easiest to work with I have met in many years. Absolutely first class people and no hassle exchanges. Would recommend them to everyone. (Posted on 7/2/2020)
Core Carry Pack Review by Joey

Just received the core pack today, couple of weeks ahead of schedule, Happy about that. Already I am loving this holster and the various configurations. Love the fact that I can release the pistol and the shift shell from the OWB Paddle configuration and put it away when I'm around the house. No bulky parts or holster hanging off my belt. When I'm ready to slap it back on, it's as easy as pushing a button, and wa-la, I'm packing again. Will write more later, but already loving this. Going to order one for my larger pistol next.

This is a well engineered product that is very versatile. I purchased it for my Beretta 96 but unfortunately it doesn't fit my gun with the Elite (thick) slide. However, I liked the system so much I kept it anyway with the idea of getting a shell for another model gun I might acquire.. (Posted on 6/7/2020)
Best Holsters/ Customer Service Review by Austin
Quality

I purchased this Core Carry Pack from a third party seller here in Guam and immediately noticed the quality of the products to be some of the best I've ever had. The holsters, Shells for the Firearms, and the neoprene leather IWB pad are some of the highest quality and extremely well designed holsters/ accessories ever made. Unfortunately, I also noticed a couple of the RH (Right Handed) clips for the Appendix carry were missing from the box. I contacted customer support right away and got on the instant messaging chat to state my issue. I was immediately greeted with a representative who was able to help me with my concern. After a few messages and information trading later, she informed me that I would be sent a couple of replacement clips as soon as possible. I just want to thank Alien Gear Representative Cassandra and the entire company for being so customer friendly and helpful when it comes to their products. I completely stand behind this company in full support and will definitely be ordering more holsters and accessories! (Posted on 6/5/2020)
Couldn't be happier Review by John 1791

Easily the best holster/system I've ever owned. Prior military, and avid patriot, I pestered my group of friends, and consistently heard that Alien Gear made what I was looking for. Slides in easily, and remains tightly secured; comfortable to carry all day, and the quality craftsmanship that you'd expect from an American made product,
This is my EDC holster, and nothing on the market even comes close. I guarantee, disappointment will never materialize, especially with their well priced Core Pack. My core pack accidentally came with right handed clips for my appendix carry holster (i carry southpaw; they say i'm more creative than you), and their customer support was superb, getting the appropriate clips shipped out to me without hassle.

All jokes aside, these holsters are the sh*t.

Its much less sturdy than I expected, and has almost no retention on my P229. The weapon can fall right out. After trying to work with AlienGear support we weren't able to get this working. (Posted on 5/31/2020)
Worth the Price Review by Andrew

I have now had my core carry pack for almost a year now. It was one of the best investments I have ever made in a holster. It's so comfortable that at times I forget it's even there. I sold the gun that I bought this holster for, but I plan on replacing it with another compatible model or just buying a new shell for a different model so I can shapeshift my carry firearms lol. This was a great product idea. I just recently purchased a belly band along with a cloak holster and I cannot wait to test drive them out when they finally get here. You guys are true craftsmen with great gear for first time holster buyers. (Posted on 5/27/2020)
