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!

I'm impressed Review by James
Quality

First off, this holster is really nice. It's really well made and super comfortable. It's a little noisy at first, but hey, it's leather, it needs to break in. I bought it to carry my Glock 23 and have recently purchased the shell to carry a Hellcat. I expect the transition to be quick and easy as I have already messed with taking it apart and adjusting the different positions you can use. I think I'm going to stop ordering online and just call them right off the bat. I always seem to mess something up and to the rescue their customer service comes. These guys are unbelievable. It shouldn't be hard to find customer service this good, but they go above and beyond. Super friendly, and I'm not messing around when I say IMMEDIATELY resolve any issue and get you set up right. I'll highly recommend anywhere. (Posted on 2/28/2021)
Great quality Review by Robbie

SIG 365XL shell on righthand draw; double mags on lefthanded draw.
- I'm really impressed with the quality; it is well made
- The modular design makes it simple to adjust mag size, draw weight, angles, etc
- The strap connecting system makes adjusting gun & mag angles pretty simple
- The thumb release is great. Takes getting used to, but it doesn't take long. It is a simple yet positive locking system.
- Still setting everything up (getting close) and breaking it in (not even close), so no news on that front at this time.

One critique - The single pistol configuration strap setup isn't the same. The pistol drops, changing carry and draw angles. This isn't a viable solution if the holster straps need to be adjusted. A simple solution would appear to be connecting the belt strap to the replacement connector. Even if it requires adjusting that belt strap, it is a very simple linear adjustment.

Great Holster Review by Commander

Overall this is the most comfortatble holster I own. Also its very stylish and I get that old timey private detective vibe when i wear it. Bit it did lose points for not coming with adjustment instructions and one of the leather straps was frayed on the inside and should have been discarded rather than used for customers holster, but you cant see the fraying while its being worn so I guess ill deal with it...

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

Value
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)
