Glock - 42 ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
OWB concealment is easy with a small pistol...but how easy is it to find a Glock 42 OWB holster that will let you really do it? Not as easy as you might think. Some hang too low, making actual concealment difficult, or they protrude too far off the waist. You can't drape anything over it; it makes it look like you have a growth or something.

To get around that, you need a Glock 42 OWB that rides high, with the bottom of the holster well above the pocket or the hem of your shirt. You'd also need one that rides close. It would also help to have adjustable passive retention instead of relying on an active retention device to overcome an abysmal fit.

We can get you wearing just such a holster. The ShapeShift Belt Slide Glock 42 OWB concealed carry holster is designed to do all those things.

The Belt Slide rides high, with the belt loops located just forward of the trigger guard. This keeps the bottom of the holster from protruding too far past the belt. The design of this holster also snugs it to your shape, keeping it tight to the body but wearing comfortably.

As a result, carrying the 42 in this holster keeps your CCW gun close to you and in an easily concealed location. A lot of people will have no problem concealing in this manner with as little as an untucked t-shirt.

Sure, promise the moon. But what if it doesn't carry as well as you'd like it to?

Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee includes a 30 Day Test Drive, a trial period after purchase during which you can return the holster for a full refund. We think you won't want to take it off, but take that first month to wear it and see if it's to your satisfaction.

We also warranty the holster fully for life. Any issue gets fixed, or you get a brand new one as long as you own it.

It's time you shifted to a better carry.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Works for me... Review by Medic 78

I purchased the Shapeshift OWB Slider Holster and the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster to see how they would work for me. I am a paraplegic and use a wheelchair for mobility. My fanny pack is what I had been using to carry my weapon but never felt comfortable not having my gun on my person. The Slide Holster is carried on my right hip at 3:30 position. All I need to do is lean to the left to unholster my Glock. I'm quite pleased at how comfortable it is. As to the Shoulder Holster, a review will be forthcoming after I break it in. An additional benefit to the Shapeshift system is that I was able to order different shells for the other Glocks I own. Thanks to the customer service people that I spoke with. They were most helpful. (Posted on 2/24/2020)
Could use some improvements Review by Dean

With the retention bar on the shell and the shell only attached on one side, this allows the holster bend to my body and make it difficult to draw. I ended up removing the retention bar and that helped but not perfect. (Posted on 11/18/2019)

I have been carrying for a year now and this is the most comfortable holster I have used to date. As I add new pistols to my EDC collection, will be looking to expand on shells for the holster. Excellent........... (Posted on 10/23/2019)

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron
Quality

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

Solid, comfortable, versatile holster for EDC Review by Nick

Extremely happy with the purchase of the ShapeShift OWB holster for my Glock 42. It carries well, has great retention right out of the box, and conceals easily under a polo, or un-tucked button down. Great alternative to IWB carry for me. Highly recommend a solid gun belt to go along with it.

Will definitely be back to AGH for my next purchase. (Posted on 3/14/2019)

Really well made holster, super comfy, almost forget its there. Friction hold is adjustable from really easy to get out, to strangle hold, death grip, nearly impossible to get out.

The only thing i would change on this; would be to attach some sort of push button trigger guard, so your weapon wont be able to be grabbed from behind, or fall out. (Posted on 3/4/2019)
