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



Please note: this holster will not accommodate the gen 5 Glock 26 at this time.



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.

Excellent product Review by Chris

I have been using this product with my S&W M&P Shield 9 2.0 PC every day for several months now and I am very satisfied with it. Everything fits well and has stayed in good working order. Very little wear noted. I generally use the AIWB appendix in warm weather and will probably switch to the IWB or belt slide when we hit jacket weather.
I have since added a second shell for my 1911, which I generally use the OWB paddle for and have also ordered a drop-leg expansion to run with the same pistol.
Just a quick note on the 1911 shell - the belt slide half-shell option does not work on the Springfield Ronin 1911, as the safety pushes the pistol out from the holster base and this messes up the retention. It does fit perfectly in the full shell, so you gain the thumb release but you do loose the option to run that particular gun tighter to your body.
It's a little pricey, but works great and is well made, so overall a 5* from me. (Posted on 9/21/2020)

Box came with everything that was advertised. Assembly was a little tricky, but I managed to figure it out. My biggest concern was that the Glock 17 holster wouldn't fit my Glock but there gun fits fine with no retention issues. (Posted on 9/18/2020)

Would love to try the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack. But NA for Bersa and Kahr. Seems like a limited applicability base. Ratings are random just to get the review submitted. (Posted on 9/12/2020)

Fantastic holster system Review by Daryl

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)
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)
