ShapeShift Glock 42 Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


Looking to make a potent pistol more portable without putting too much on or about the waistband? Try Alien Gear's Glock 42 Shoulder Holster. This comfortable carry holster will carry your pistol comfortably, securely, and with sufficient adjustability for you to find the perfect fit.


In order for a shoulder holster for Glock 42 pistols to carry comfortably, it has to fit correctly. It should also allow for the gun to be positioned where it feels most comfortable and conceals most easily. The straps have several inches of adjustment, allowing you to lengthen or shorten the straps as needed.


The shoulder straps are also articulated with a clover harness, which lets the straps find a natural resting place on the body and move with you. We also pad the shoulder straps with our CoolVent neoprene, which adds a cushion but also wicks away moisture and breathes against the skin.


The holster base pad can be adjusted for height, so you can bring it high and tight or take it down lower toward the belt. Belt hooks secure the gun holster and the magazine carrier base to the belt, which keeps the holster securely in place. You'll notice the weight carried by the holster is spread a little more easily and the gun is kept a little closer to the body.


The holster itself is the ShapeShift shell, custom-molded for the Glock 42. You get perfect fitment right out of the box, with no need for break-in. Passive retention is also fully adjustable, so you can get the hold that you want. We also include a removable thumb-break strap, so you can carry with or without active retention as desired.


The holster is adjustable for ride height and cant angle, in case you wish to carry horizontally or as a Glock 42 vertical shoulder holster. You can also attach up to two Alien Gear mag carriers to the magazine carrier base in case you want to carry spare ammunition.


You also get the benefit of Alien Gear Holsters' Iron-Clad Guarantee, which starts with a 30 Day Test Drive trial period after purchase. During this time, you can return the holster for a full refund if not satisfied with the holster. You also get a lifetime warranty on your Glock 42 leather shoulder holster.


If you're ready to shift into shoulder carry, get your Test Drive started today!

Superb Craftmanship Review by CJ

I recently bought a ShapeShift shoulder harness. I am totally blown away by the quality and comfort of this rig. There are so many well thought out features, and custom adjustments. I waited a long time to get this and now I wish I had not waited. My old rig was 20+ years old and very uncomfortable. This rig feels like it was tailored for me. Best holster available. I am so proud to own this holster!! Thanks again Alien Gear! Hope you come out with apparel soon I want to buy a hat and shirt...just to show off!!! (Posted on 11/20/2020)

Well thought out system Review by Chuck
Quality

The shoulder holster has nicely colored leather and the system is very well thought out. The variation in adjustment is almost limitless, between various strap length positions, to cant angle adjustments. It takes a lot of trial and error to get the fit just right, but once you get it custom fitted, the time it takes is worth it. I love the thumb release, and it may be my favorite feature. The retention is nice, and is adjustable on the shell side. The amount of available parts can be eye-opening, and you will have sore fingers from tinkering, but once you have everything down, you will feel like a modular master. It is so awesome to pull the shell of the holster and use it on an outside/inside ShapeShift waistband holster. Thanks for a great product that finally allows me to use a shoulder holster where my firearm is pointed safely downward, instead of horizontally at someone behind me (like at my passenger on my motorcycle).

Good shoulder rig, can use some improvment Review by LugerMan.com

Got a double sided shoulder rig for my Sig 320 45 full size. Left and right.

At first rig appeared bulky and uncomfortable.
Found a design problem with a retention strap been positioned on the inside of the holster.

Changes the lockup and gun position, not a good idea.

But holster works good without the retention.
If you need them, look elsewhere.

I think that needs work.

2nd day in holster started braking in and now feels good and secure.

Like new shoes it needs to be broken in and settle in.

I now find it comfortable and better fit than my competitor shoulder double rigs, for my other gun pairs.

Durability and longevity of it will have to be seen, so far so good. If it lasts a year it will be worth it. (Posted on 10/21/2020)

I' been wearing this holster for about a month now and it only gets more comfortable. After adjusting the angle up on the pistol holder the release is sure and solid. Fit and concealability are top notch. I have recommended this holster to my friends! (Posted on 10/1/2020)
Wow, quality at fantastic price Review by Wally

The innovation and thought that went into the Shape Shift systems is incredible. I have ordered over $400.00 in holster items for a variety of handguns recently and have been amazed at each one. I could not be happier. When I was active in law enforcement and undercover, I wore a Galco Miami Classic for years. It was nice, however, you got what you got - no real options for cant, angle of magazines, etc. The AE gear is incredibly adjustable. I'm amazed at the amount of thought you all had to put this together. And very pleased. I love the interchangeability of the parts and I can mix and match to meet needs of the day. Thank you Alien Gear, I'm a believer in the extra-terrestrial !!!! (Posted on 9/26/2020)
Meh Review by Chris

Very comfortable holster. Well made and easy to adjust for custom fit. Horrible pistol release. If I were to ever need to draw the pistol in any semblance of a hurry, I would be dead. It almost takes two hands due to the catch not releasing correctly. I thought I had it figured out, but it still sucks. No matter how the thumb button is pressed, the hook doesn't fully retract and the pistol needs violently jerked. (Posted on 8/25/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Chris! Thank you so mcu for your feedback and we do apologize for the thumb release issue here. It sounds like the issue may be the retention unit itself. When using the thumb release the retention unit needs to be backed all the way out so the inner notch is not sticking out at all. We hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions!

Worth The Wait Review by DANIEL

I ordered my holster just as this whole COVID-19 thing started and waited well over a month for it to come in. I do have to say though that it was worth it. The craftsmanship is outstanding and the comfort is top-notch. The only con I have is that holster insert will not accommodate a light on the front of my pistol. It would be a nice future add on for the product. I for one would purchase it and I believe I am not alone. Other than this small con I have nothing bad to say about the product. A well-made holster that fits my pistol nicely and has multiple adjustment/personalization options. (Posted on 6/16/2020)
Great Product With Room For Improvement Review by Josh
Quality

First, I would like to state that this is a great product. The quality of the workmanship put into this handmade leather holster is superb. However, there are some design flaws that I would like to point out. Also note that I purchased two of these holsters, one for myself and one for my father. Over the last 60 days our experiences have been the same. The first issue we had is the design of the magazine portion of the shoulder rig. The mag pouches are plastic and adjustable, and though they do have rounded edges they poke you on soft inside of the arm. I attempted to muscle through this discomfort for 30 days but just could not get past it. Therefore, I removed the mag carrier and switched to the included link, my father told me not long after that he did the same. This brings in a second issue, as now the whole rig wants to pull towards the firearm side due to the weight. The link only allows you to loop two mag side shoulder straps. It does not allow you the option to reuse the included belt strap found on the mag paddle. If this function did exist, I would not only be able to keep both sides of my pants up but also even out the distribution of the entire rig. My Father and I would honestly be willing to pay a little more for the leather flap that is provided on the firearm side to be included, as it resolves the exact issue that would exist for the firearm. On a side note, the customer service line has the nicest ladies I have ever dealt with. At the time of my order they were having tech issues and the conformation emails were not going out. I reached out customer service by phone and the lovely lady that answered provided me with my information. She also explained to me that the leather portions are all hand made to order and that it would take longer than I expected to receive these. Since one was purchased as a gift and time was a factor to me, she assisted me in canceling my original order and reordering with expedited shipping. She also proceeded to call me back several days later to ensure that I received all my conformation emails once the Alien Gear email servers were back online. This level of service has made me and my father customers for life. Thank you all for what you do. (Posted on 5/30/2020)
