Glock - 26 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 26 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

Alien Gear is proud to bring you the ultimate Glock 26 holster, the ShapeShift modular holster system. The ShapeShift isn't merely a holster; it's a complete carry system. The base Glock 26 holster package is actually four Glock 26 holsters in total, allowing you to carry your Glock 26 virtually any way you want - openly or as multiple configurations of a Glock 26 concealed carry holster.

More than two years of painstaking engineering and design went into the ShapeShift. The core of the ShapeShift holster system is the injection-molded shell, made from nearly indestructible polymer that will last for years, if not decades. The shell separates into two halves, one for the left side and one for the right side, giving you one full Shift Shell.

You decide how to wear your Glock 26 holster. The ShapeShift uses a toolless locking system using a proprietary locking rail, so all you need do is dock it with the backing and belt attachment system of your choice.

We include two backing pads for use as a Glock 26 IWB holster. There is a larger pad, which you may recognize as having the same construction as our Cloak Tuck 3.0, for wearing as a traditional winged IWB holster.

There is also a smaller pad for use as a Glock 26 appendix holster.

In either case, you merely need attach the quarter shell to one of the half shells, and dock with the IWB holster backer of your choice. If carrying in the appendix position, an appendix carry clip is included with your kit, which attaches to the top of the holster shell.

If OWB carry is to your preference, there are two different ways to use your ShapeShift kit as a Glock 26 OWB holster. Using the appendix backer and configuration, simply attach the two belt slide attachments for use as a hybrid OWB holster. This configuration is especially suited to those who prefer to concealed carry with an OWB holster, as you should be able to conceal your pistol and holster with as little as an untucked shirt.

However, for those that prefer to open carry daily or on occasion, assemble the holster using the two half-shells and lock them together. At this point, attach the paddle attachment, adjust the cant angle to your preference and wear as a Glock 26 paddle holster.

There are more features than you might be used to from other holsters. In addition to the multiple methods of carrying, there are more retention features than any other holster design offers. When used in either IWB configuration or as a belt-slide OWB, several retention guards can be installed, providing passive retention in loose, medium and high-retention settings.

If you prefer carrying with a retention holster, the paddle holster configuration can be equipped with a thumb release or finger release...or both, if you need maximum retention for carry.

Like our other award-winning products, we offer one of the most comprehensive guarantees in the business with the ShapeShift Glock 26 holster. First is our 30-day Test Drive, a trial period of 30 days after purchasing the holster where you can take time to wear it. If unsatisfied, you can return it within that time period for a refund.

We also warranty your Glock 26 holster for life. Any issue, whether due to defect or damage, will be fixed...or we will send you a whole new holster - for as long as you own it.

The ShapeShift is a new standard in what's possible from a holster.

I give it a fair rating. Review by Ray

The shapeshift core carry pack served its purpose. I'm new to concealed carry and I wanted to the try the appendix carry and IWB holster to see which I would prefer. The appendix carry isn't for me. The IWB holster is more comfortable for me. However the issue I have is that if I set the cant to my preferred angle there is about 3/4 " of plastic that sticks above the holster backing and occasionally digs into my side. The two options are get the occasional dig in the side or set it to a cant that isn't my preferred setting. (Posted on 9/27/2019)
I am liking this holster pack Review by Thud

I almost never submit reviews, feedback or surveys. Everywhere you go from the grocery store, drug store, doctors and seemingly every time you buy anything online I get swamped with requests to do the above. I can say that I am beginning to warm-up to the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack. There are so many configurations and options it almost boggles the mind sorting and watching Alien Gear how to videos really helped. I am an IWB wearer and I find this configuration very comfortable; can't wait to try the other setups. I chatted with Alien Gear reps about getting a few extra weld nuts and button screws and they accommodated me. This is why I am happy to recommend Alien Gear. (Posted on 9/23/2019)
good holsters Review by Rick

Comfortable to wear. Easy to switch around from one configuration to another. A little wider than some other holsters but this makes it easier to put the pistol back in the holster. (Posted on 9/13/2019)

Great rig for a good value Review by Todd

I've always been a strong side hip carry guy, never even tried the other options such as appendix etc. This pack allowed to me try different options without having to buy a holster for 100$ and then find out I disliked XYZ mode of carry. It's sturdy, fits well and functions well. I did have a bit of a issue that my adjustable retention knob would not turn. So I simply took it off, saw that it was misaligned, fixed it and put it back on. Took me all of 3 minutes to do.

It comes in a nice box, packed well, with easy instructions. Yes there is some "assembly" required, but if that is a deal breaker then I'm lost as to how you even stripped down your carry weapon for maintenance.

It's a great deal, especially for those new to EDC. I've settled on my go to of strong side hip belt slide and it's comfy and retains my weapon well.

Just buy one already. (Posted on 9/1/2019)
All around good system. Review by Edd

I have had the chance to check out this system and am very pleased with what I have found. The IWB is my favorite configuration, but for those days when I am working around the ranch and concealment isn't a concern the paddle system was extremely comfortable and practical, While I am not a big fan of appendix carry that holster was also very comfortable when placed in the right spot, it also allowed me to use the same position as the IWB when I needed less printing in lighter clothes. The only thing I didn't try was the slide belt, mainly because everything I wanted was covered by the other units. (Posted on 8/17/2019)

Alien Gear Holsters should one day make Shape Shift shells for an FN 509 and a Heckler & Koch USP9 compact for this set someday. (Posted on 7/30/2019)
great holsters, lefties pay attention Review by Anuran

if you, like me, are left handed, and you want a holster to fit a gun configured for left handed use, the half shell design will give you absolutely no trouble and be an amazing holster. if, however you, like me, want a full shell holster, you may need to do some modification. the gun I'm currently carrying is a CZ P-07, with the mag release swapped for left handed operation, the first time I tried to holster the gun, it wouldn't engage the retention, when I finally got iy to engage, it dropped the magazine free because the right half of the shell does not have the relief cut that the left side does for the mag release. it would be amazing to see the holster modified with the following relief cuts placed on both sides: magazine release clearance, decocker/safety relief both sides. other than these two minor inconveniences, this holster is well constructed, durable, and will last me years. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. (Posted on 7/29/2019)

Great set up, IF you don't do external modifications to your pistol Review by TF

PROS: This is a GREAT set , A LOT of options, GREAT value, GREAT quality.
GREAT CUST. service
EXCEPT their website chat help, initially my kit came with the long slide release (which is only for the 1911, according to the booklet), and I asked her to send the right part, she was RUDE and said if its in my kit then it was the right one, I told her the booklet that came with the kit said that the larger thumb lock was only for 1911 and that i just wanted the correct part, she then said it will fit dont worry about it, and kept saying i was wrong, she just kept insisting it was the right part and that i was wrong, and then just closed the chat window? so I called them and they were A LOT better on the phone.

CONS: you cannot have any external MODIFICATON on the pistol or it wont fit in the shells, (I.E. I had the Vickers Extended slide release on my G26 and it wouldnt fit in the shell because it stuck out too far.)
you cant have some larger sights because they wont fit in the small slit they have for the OEM sights, depending on pistol.
Sent me the wrong parts twice.
quicker holster wear from the material
the quick connect system is great but i can see the little connector pieces wearing out quickly becasue they are just plastic and needing to replace them
the shell is fit almost perfectly to the gun, but when you use both sides together there is some rattle, and you get a easier and smoother draw from kydex than from this polymer type plastic that they use since its so rigid.

CONCLUSION: GREAT Kit if you dont do any external modifications to your pistol or if you are just starting and want to easily see which was you want to carry your pistol, just buy the kit and you can try out all the different ways.
