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.

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

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)

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)
Great Holster at an Excellent Price Review by Patrick

Fantastic holster! You can wear this all day and forget you're wearing it. Pistol stays securely in place. My only criticisms: 1) Getting it adjusted is difficult and instructions are sub par. You should have your own video on setting the holster up. I had to go to Youtube to find a third party review who demonstrated exactly how to set up (Thanks "Tactical Black Guy") without him I never would have figured this out on my own; 2) There needs to be an adapter or some sort of height adjustment for those who wear boots. If you wear boots over 4" you'll have to leave them partially unlaced as the holster will not fit properly with boots. Overall, a great product. If you work in an environment where waist carry is difficult to conceal, this is an excellent option. Conceals well. Comfortable. Cannot slide down. Gun stays securely in place. And the wrap around velcro cover gives an added layer of concealment. What more could you ask for? (Posted on 11/18/2018)

I just received the Shape Shift ankle holster and just would like to let you know how much I like it. It is without a doubt the best ankle holster on the market. I carry a Glock 27 and the holster keeps it tight and it is the most comfortable ankle holster I have worn. (Posted on 11/9/2018)
