Glock - 42 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

96% of 100
What does a person typically like in a Glock 42 IWB holster? Obviously it should be comfortable. It should fit the pistol well and also retain it. But what typically goes wrong? Well, a lot of holsters out there just aren't that comfortable. They aren't made from comfortable materials, some don't offer good fit or retention (or any at all) and then there holsters that hold the gun just fine but take up WAY more space inside the waistband than they should.

What's a person to do? Buy a holster from every company that makes them? Of course not. But what if we told you that a better Glock 42 concealed carry holster was out there?

Here it is:

The ShapeShift G42 IWB holster was designed with all the limitations of typical IWBs in mind. The footprint is smaller, so a subcompact holster feels like a subcompact holster. The backing is comfortable, so you can carry all day and not mind a bit. The fit is perfect out of the box, with no break-in time needed and with adjustable retention.

That's a lot to claim. How did we do it?

The ShapeShift shell attaches at a single point and locks in place. Since the shell can't move and doesn't need multiple mounting points, we've shrunk the backer around 25 percent compared to our other Glock 42 IWB holsters. The ShiftShell also wraps the whole trigger guard, ensuring safety and a perfect fit.

The backer itself has a neoprene backlayer, breathable and comfortable. The interior layer is a sheet of spring steel, which flexes as the holster is fastened and conforms to your shape. As a result, the holster wears incredibly comfortably.

You also can adjust the passive retention to exactly your desired setting. Ride height and grip cant are adjustable as well, and just like the retention force doesn't require the use of tools.

It might sound a little too good to be true, but you don't have to take our word for it. Part of our Iron-Clad Guarantee is a 30-day trial period after purchase. Wear the holster. Carry with it. If you don't like it, you have up to 30 days to send it back for a refund.

We also warranty your ShapeShift holster for life, and any defects or damage will get fixed or you get a brand new holster.
