Glock - 42 ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
This is a better class of Glock 42 ankle holster. Other ankle holsters for this pistol often leave a lot to be desired in terms of fit, retention, comfort and overall quality, which Alien Gear has set out to overcome with an innovative new design of holster.

Other designs of ankle holster for Glock 42 pistols usually just strap at the ankle or rely on a garter system. They fit okay, but will eventually start riding down and otherwise moving as you do. Even walking briskly can cause the gun to move around. Then you have to deal with the chafing from the material and - especially if wearing leather - your ankle area turning into soup, which can be unpleasant.

With our ankle holster, Glock 42 pistols ride securely. We use a two-piece strap, including a heel strap and ankle strap for incredible stability. Once secured, your gun goes nowhere. The strapping is also elasticized in key areas, allowing the straps to stretch while being securely fastened and making the holster comfortable to wear.

The breathable ventilated neoprene material also keeps the skin cool, while wicking away moisture. This makes this Glock 42 ankle holster much better to wear for extended periods as well. You'll also notice the ride height is adjustable, so you can set the holster to carry at the ride position you prefer.

Never worry about retention. This holster is custom-molded for the Glock 42 pistol, fitting perfectly right out of the packaging and holding the pistol better than universal designs that barely fit any gun. You can also dial in the passive retention to your exact desired setting.

The Alien Gear Glock 42 Ankle Holster also comes backed with our Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30 Day Test Drive trial period and a comprehensive lifetime warranty. Take the first 30 days to see if you like the holster; return before the end of the first month for a full refund if not. Past that time, we will repair any defects or damage to the holster or replace it outright.

Get ready for a shift in what you can expect from ankle carry.

Great holster for extra small pistols Review by Joshua
Quality

I ordered the Shapeshift Ankle Holster for my PT111 G2, but my pistol was too big for it to be a good way to carry. The holster is well-made, secure in its position and reasonably comfortable to wear, but it will work much better for a smaller pistol. (Posted on 9/14/2019)
Better than not carrying at all Review by Flyboy

First, this ankle holster system works for smaller\thinner firearms. I have a Glock 27 and I will say that is the max size. My Glock 23 is a no go in this setup. And the Glock 27 only works for me in certain dress\casual pants. Regular fit Levis are a no go with the 27. The holster system is well built and some thought went into it. It rides well. With the design, the support tab keeps it from riding down. The velcro straps hold it securely in place. How quick one could draw the firearm is largely going to be how loose your pant leg is. The firearm can be adjusted higher or lower. A lot of good features. I love the entire Shape Shift setup. Ankle holsters of any kind are better than not carrying at all. Just not a quick defense configuration if you need to present your firearm quickly. Practicing will help. (Posted on 8/21/2019)

A good holster but not for me Review by Louie

Finally an ankle holster that is heading in the right direction. However, I stopped wearing the ankle holster because I found the lower wrap under my heel to be too uncomfortable. At work, I have to wear a suit, dress shoes and socks which may be the reason the ankle holster does not work for me. In short, I found the lower wrap distracting because it feels like a bunched up sock. I'll keep an eye on this product for possible improvements to the lower wrap. (Posted on 5/2/2019)

Excellent ankle holster with one caveat Review by Colby
Quality

I've been using this holster nearly every day for the last seven months and love it. It is comfortable and very secure. The only caveat is that the polymer spine that goes into the pocket has rubbed itself smooth and will squeak as I walk. When I reached out to the Alien Gear team about it they suggested putting talc into the pocket, which worked great for a couple of months but adding more talc is simple (if a bit messy if you're not careful).

I'm returning this holster as I found that I just don't prefer ankle carry. Having said that, this holster is of excellent quality and extremely comfortable. If you're a fan of ankle carry then this is the holster for you! (Posted on 1/1/2019)
Good Holster Review by Grunt162

Great concept for a modular holster system. Very unique design. I wore it tonight for the first time and I can see that I will need to wear regular socks with the system instead of ankle socks. The gun tends to rub against my skin which irritates my skin (personal preference). I would also prefer that the gun would sit straight up and down versus the rearward cant.

With that being said, it is a good system and it does stay in place and does not move around like my other ankle holster. The gun doesn't pull away from my ankle either. It stays nice and tight against my leg so that it doesn't print as much as others. It appears bulky when you first look at it, but it really isn't.

I will be using this on a regular basis at work. I carry a SIG P365 in the holster.

Overall, I like the holster. (Posted on 12/21/2018)
Great Product Review by rcmedic

The ONLY snag here is that I obviously missed that this is NOT compatible with my integrated Crimson Trace Laser and so renders this holster unusable to me. (Posted on 12/9/2018)
