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.

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)
Super comfy fits close to the body! Review by Glock 19 tony

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)

Some improvement needed Review by Tim W
Quality

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
very good concealment Review by JJ

i have 2 Alien IWBs and I recently bought the OWB slide for concealed carry during winter months wearing layers of clothing and heavy gloves. The IWB holsters are good but just too difficult for me to use in heavy winter clothing. The OWB Slide works quite well. Easy concealment under a jacket even with a full size handgun and much easier to deploy in heavy clothing and gloves. Works very well for me. (Posted on 12/4/2018)
feels great Review by Dean

It feels great on your body with the soft padding and that is where it ends. The holster has adjusting screws that do nothing except for change the angle of the pad and not the angle of your gun. The holster belt loops are connected to the holster making it so you can not tilt the holster forward. This holster makes your gun stick out more so forget it being concealed under your shirt.
