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.

The core carry pack is a great bundle very versatile, the holster fits my Glock model 19 perfectly. The instructions are easy to follow to switch platforms that come in the core set. I am very happy with Alien Gear. (Posted on 9/1/2020)

When I received the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack I never expected I would use all the different combinations.. My favorite is the IWB Cloak tuck, l wear this everyday possible. I like having the ability to switch it up with the appendix and the paddle holster. I have bought other ShapeShift shells so I can carry any of my guns by making a few quick changes.. This is the best holster I have ever purchased! It is very comfortable and durable, I never leave home with out it! Now I'm waiting for the ShapeShift shoulder holster to get here.

Been using the g2s appendix holster for my g3c and love it. The adjustable retention is perfect and the pad is comfortable to the skin. Highly recommend. My girl loves her leg holster for her g2c as well. (Posted on 8/19/2020)
What is this alien technology? Review by WILL
Quality

BUYER BEWARE! This may be actual alien technology. I am currently wearing a tinfoil hat, while waiting for the Feds to show up. I received the Core Carry Pack (hereinafter "Pack") yesterday evening. Instead of delivery via UPS-badged delivery van, the Pack was delivered via a diesel pickup that sat out in my driveway for what seemed like an eternity. The delivery lady wasn't wearing a uniform. True story.

I've played around with the components and after slowly overcoming my retardation, I got the hang of the system. I'm worried that somewhere there are aliens who want their technology back. I don't know about the durability yet, but the quality seems exceptional and the engineering hurts my head.

The Pack says that it is made in "America", which must be some galaxy heretofore unknown. But almost seriously, I love the fact that this Pack is made in USA and, more importantly, my home country of Northern Idaho.

On a serious note, the Pack covers all of the different configurations I wanted. I bought this for my Glock 23 and plan to carry it concealed and open, in the woods and in town. I plan on beating the holy heck out of this Pack; I look forward to challenging its durability. So far, 5 out of 5 stars in all categories.

Almost, but not quite there. Review by Mr.E

For both the IWB holster and the appendix carry holsters, I would like for them to be able to ride lower than they do. You can adjust it down on the IWB, but not low enough & for appendix, there isn't any option at all. The only way I'm able to wear these comfortably, the way I want, is to put it on with a second belt, under my pants & that's ridiculous.

A cheap, easy fix would be to offer belt clips that are about 1.5 inches longer for the IWB holster.
For the appendix holster, make a clip that slides up & down at the belt loop part & then locks into place.

If I had that option to buy, I would be happy with this product. Without it, it just doesn't meet my needs. (Posted on 8/17/2020)
Initial review of the shapeshift core carry pack Review by abatoir2001

First off let me say, that is a lot of stuff in that box. However the system is put together well, and easy to use. Everything seems solid and well built. I put together the IWB appendix holster, and the IWB holster, which I am wearing now, and will probably use most of the time. My first impression is that it is very comfortable, conceals well has good retention. Eady to draw,and reholster. I will use this during the summer months then probably switch to the OWB slide for the winter monthes. I will update this review after I've worn it for a month or two.

Mixed feelings Review by Danniel

Ordered my holster and that was very easy. What i have a problem with is it took 7 weeks to get shipped out and to my front door. Yet my buddy ordered his the same day I got mine delivered, yet it only took 2 weeks to get delivered. I really enjoyed the product but disappointed about the delivery time for my order. Idk if I'll be ordering anything else from here if shipping is going to take 5 plus weeks to ship for some orders yet other orders take less then 2 weeks. (Posted on 8/12/2020)

So many options with this holster combo. My favorite is the appendix carry setup. You get lots of stuff for the money. It is comfortable to carry all day long as well. (Posted on 8/5/2020)
Excellent company and great product. But. Review by BajanSpear

The product is innovative, well manufactured, the company is popular, and it looks both stylish and functional.In the OWB configuration it is fine, and the vehicle mount is neat too. I have no complaint, but it just did not work for me in the IWB mode with a model as small as the P365. My son loved his Alien Gear kit for a full size, however, I just could not find a comfortable fit personally. Good product, would probably try again sometime for a different size carry.
