Glock - 26 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

95% of 100

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.
