Glock 27 AIWB Holster


The reason you get a Glock 27 AIWB holster is for deeper concealment and convenience. They can be put on more quickly and usually easier than a traditional IWB holster. The typical holster company knows that's what you're after, which is why the design is usually shorted in terms of comfort or quality of fitment and retention. The ShapeShift will change all that.

Sure, plenty of Glock 27 appendix holsters are out there...but not too many are comfortable to wear. Kydex or other hard plastic pancakes may fit the gun well but feel like you're wearing a soap dish with sharp edges, especially when you sit down. Leather is pretty good, but custom leather holsters for your precise make and model pistol take a long time to get made and break in. Others only fit generically.

Then there's what happens when warm weather sets in.

A plastic pancake will get slick with sweat and moisture, and leather or other cloth doesn't breathe well and will start stinking after a year or two. If it lasts that long after breaking in and getting looser.

The ShapeShift Glock 27 AIWB holster uses a backer made from layers of ventilated neoprene, woven nylon and spring steel. The neoprene cushions and breathes, but since it's also closed-cell, repels moisture. The nylon and spring steel core gives the holster sufficient firmness to ensure longevity but also comfort, since you won't feel your gun through the backer. The flexing of the steel plate also aids in retention.

The shell of the ShapeShift Glock 27 appendix carry holster is injection-molded from an ultra-durable polymer blend that's nearly indestructible under normal conditions. No more brittle plastic for you. You'll also note that the shell gives the trigger guard a full wrap, more than any other hybrid holster on the market.

You get the convenience and easy concealment of appendix carry with none of the drawbacks.

You also get Alien Gear's guarantees, some of the most comprehensive in the industry. First, take the first month of ownership to wear the holster and evaluate it. If, during the first 30 days, you find it isn't the holster for you, contact us and we'll buy the holster back from you.

We also warranty all holsters for life. If you should have an issue, any issue at all and regardless of how it happens, we will fix it or we will send you a brand new holster. For life.

The ShapeShift is an evolution of the appendix carry holster. Are you ready for the next great thing in concealed carry?

Can we get better upgrades? Review by Happy with but it could be better

I got the appendix carry for my g26 and g19. It works fine until you find out that it doesnt work with red dots. So in order to make it work, I only cut a bit from the top so the gun with the red dot would fit. I felt that it was a bit bulky still and then figured out that theres spacers that you can take out from where the kydex and the pad are screwed in. It looks more concealable now. However it wouldve been a bit better if the belt clip wasnt so wide. The clip can be slimmer and that would take off at least an eighth of an inch. And last but not least, If it would come with a wing like other kydex holsters out there provide to help with concealment, that would be great. Still a good product but it can definitely be better. I hope you guys create these accessories quickly (wing and slimmer belt clip) so I can upgrade. Thanks. (Posted on 2/19/2021)
This Was The Right Choice Review by Roy

I bought the appendix carry holster for my SR9C back in August 2020. I had been considering switching my concealed carry position from the 3 to 4 o'clock position to appendix for a while. I read many reviews from other Alien Gear customers and all indications were that it was a good option to consider. It took a little while and some trial and error to get use to the new position, but it quickly became quite comfortable. I like it enough that I just ordered the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack for my 1911. I typically carry the 1911 and it is my preferred EDC. I feel confident that it will be as comfortable as the first one.
Fantastic quality, fantastic product... I have and will continue to recommend it to others looking for their first or replacement holster. (Posted on 2/11/2021)

Gun sits too high Review by Ron
Quality

I like the small footprint but, on me, the gun print is obvious. 2/3 of my gun sits above my belt, it does not ride close, and leaves me feeling like the gun is going to fall out. When I bend over, say to tie my shoe, the gun sags down. The holster itself does not hold the gun securely, turn it upside down and the gun slides out. The thumb release feature does hold the gun securely but does not release. I literally had to take the holster off and muscle my gun out! I wanted to like this holster because of its smaller footprint but I do not care for it at all. I have already e-mailed asking for return instructions. (Posted on 11/4/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Ron! Thank you so much for your feedback and we hope to make this right for you! We can definitely understand the confusion with the adjustable retention unit and the thumb release. When using the thumb release you need to make sure you do not have your retention unit tightened down on the gun. If you do it will not allow you to draw smoothly. Allow without the thumb release this holster is considered a passive retention holster, which means if you do not have the holster on your belt and you tip the holster upside down the gun will fall out. It relies on your belt and body to provide the correct and safe amount of retention. Please reach out if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Alien Gear ShapeShift Best Appendix Carry Holster!!! Review by LJ
Quality

First, off I just want to say that I love the whole shapeshift idea, buy one holster, and use it for many different carry positions just brilliant! Secondly, I've owned many different holsters and have never been able to successfully pull off the appendix carry without it looking like I've got a gun in my waistband. That is until I purchased the Alien Gear ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster. This holster is amazingly comfortable, very concealable, and will have you wanting to carry your firearm more. Which in my opinion is very important. Oh did I mention they also back up their holsters with a lifetime warranty? No, well they do and I will not buy any other holster than Alien Gear from here on out. Great job guys!! (Posted on 9/2/2020)
Fantastic Holster minus a few details Review by G

This holster is Fantastic, it does what I need it to do. The only complaint i have is a small detail which is in my eyes an easy fix. Printing from the handle, I'm using the Taurus G2C and I still get a little printing from the handle. Most holster manufactures incorporate a stem on the belt clip that pushes the belt out and the weapon into the body, eliminating the printing you see from the handle. The reason why I believe this to be an easy fix is because the parts on this great device are interchangeable. Redesign the clip for the appendix holster and I'll be the first to buy it, That's a Guarantee! (Posted on 8/23/2020)

Excellent holster system Review by Nick
Quality

The holster is excellent and has a lot of functionality with the modular shapeshift system. The only feature that I could say is an issue for me is the lack of an O clip for a solid mount to a belt. People have complained about bulk, however in my case with my fullsize M&P, it looks like I have a large belt buckle if at all noticeable. The lack of cant and height adjustment is a common complaint and I see where it could be an issue with others. It is a larger holster as it is modular- however I think that offers more comfort with the pad underneath versus a smaller appendix holster that barely covers the weapon. (Posted on 8/11/2020)
Great holster system!! Review by Amazon Customer

Excellent holder and the modular functionality of the shapeshift platform is perfect. This is my first concealed holster, so I do not have much to compare to, but it did buy it for what it is and for the options and conversations -modularity. The pad is comfortable on the surface, but can push into waist or leg when working and doing a lot of movement depending on position. I feel that mo matter what position, there will be some dig or push of any holster. It just goes with it. The only thing I took away a star for is that they presently only offer a clip on the front. Maybe soon, they will put out an O clip option of a snap loop option to change it out. The clip is great for now, solid and easy to slip over pants/belt, but I do understand as they say that it will wear over time. When it comes available, it will be one of the first changes. I will be getting some of the other expansion packs for other carry options and review them as well. I am only testing presently and found that for my full size M&P 11:00 position offers the most comfort and least print with length of the grip and bulge from the clip and thickness of the complete unit. 1:00 position is a bit more comfortable but prints more. It isn't very noticeable, but it does print. I may consider a mag pouch as well and the other IWB pancake expansion pack to try to spread the bulge and make it print even less. It is a great holster for what it is though. Highly recommended. (Posted on 8/1/2020)
