Glock 43 ShapeShift Pocket Holster

ShapeShift Glock 43 Pocket Holster



A Glock 43 pocket holster is naturally a carry method one would think of for packing a pint size Glock. Some people want deep concealment without the hassle on the waistband either for a primary carry gun or for carrying a backup gun. With the slim width, light weight and compact dimensions of the Glock 43, it's a no-brainer.


Except that it's hard to find a pocket holster for Glock 43 pistols that actually carries well. Most are not much more than a cloth pouch that goes over the gun, basically a thick sock cut to sometimes the right length. Fitment is nonexistent, retention is poor if the holster has any, and the draw is problematic.


Sights snag when your draw out of your Glock 43 pocket holster, or it comes out with the gun.


Why give up function for the convenience of pocket carry? Alien Gear Holsters doesn't think you need to give up the one to have the other, and that is evident in our ShapeShift Pocket Holster design.


The holster starts with a retention shell molded from our durable polymer blend. It's made tough, able to stand up to years of daily carry without issue. Since the shell is custom-molded for the Glock 43, fitment is perfect out of the packaging. The sight channel cut into the holster ensures a proper draw.


The ShapeShift shell fully wraps the trigger guard, which is of paramount importance when carrying a pistol with a trigger safety. The trigger can't be touched when the gun is holstered. You can also dial in the passive retention exactly as you want it.


The pocket catch feature ensures a consistent draw from concealment. It catches inside the pocket during the draw stroke, providing a counter-tension that lets the pistol break from the holster surely, every time. You can train with this holster as you need to, and count on it to work should you need it to in a defensive scenario.


You can also count on this holster to come with a product guarantee. Our Iron-Clad Guarantee includes a 30 Day Test Drive trial period at purchase, and a Forever Warranty for the lifetime of the holster.

Great stuff for Taurus G2C Review by Globemstr3

Ive been carrying a Bodyguard 380 as my EDC. Carried in a Sticky Holster. Works fine no complaints with Sticky. Didn't feel comfortable with a 6+1 n 380. Got a GREAT deal on a 12+1 Taurus G2C. Almost got the 365 but Im very frugal. OK cheap.
I really use a pocket carry. IWB/OWB is great just not for me.
I bought a holster for the G2C. IWB nice manufacturer I just don't like IWB. Without getting into the holster hunting mouse cage I bought the Shapeshift Pocket for G2C. Total game changer. Unboxed it read nothing, thru the firearm in it and stuck in my Wrangler Cargo short front pocket. No tensioning no nothing.
They say Thumb it to release the firearm. Cant do that with a half thumb due to injury. I used trigger finger press on the shell. WOW! This Shapeshift is OUTSTANDING.
I sorta feel like Doc Holiday at the draw and have had it 20 minutes!
Will be buying expansion products in the future. And I finally found a Holster company I can stick with without breaking the bank. Thank You Alien Gear!

I have carried a handgun for over 20 years, on several different platforms, and I am here to tell you this company beats them all. If you are unsure of which way you are wanting to carry this is the holster company for you. I have probably owned over 50 different holsters and I think I may have found my last company I will ever use.

Risk free satisfaction guaranteed
Lifetime warranty

Unbeatable period.

The design of the holster makes it easy to draw and leave the holster in your pocket. The design also masks the shape of the gun pretty well. The ease of changing from pocket to ankle with the modular shape shift product is very convenient. The product also arrived ahead of schedule. (Posted on 2/5/2019)
Hot pocket Review by Clifford

I am a retired peace officer, I always carry (even at home, because 100% of all home invasions take place at home). I normally carry my Glock 30SL or Glock 19 as a primary weapon, but I have used the pocket holster from Alien Gear fitted for my Ruger LCP II, as my backup. I have carried it in both my left front pants pocket or in my jacket pocket.

I received it within several days of ordering it. The construction is very good quality. If is easy to place into the pocket. The snag hook design properly snags the rim of the pocket for release (tension can be adjusted as in all shape shift models), additionally, there is a molded ridge that allows you to push forward with your thumb to release the weapon. The only picky thing that I can find is that I wish the aforementioned thumb release was even 1/4-inch longer, as I have a small hand. I would recommend this holster to anyone, including anyone that carries a small weapon in a purse of pack, as the weapon is easily deploy-able while fully protecting anything from entering the trigger guard of your weapon by items in your pocket, purse or pack.

I plan on eventually replacing my holsters with Alien Gear ShapeShift holsters.

Great Product Review by Acalade

Been using the Pocket Holster for about a week now with my Glock G43. I prints slightly when sitting down, but not one person has noticed I have a gun in my pocket. I've practiced my draw, and comes out of the holster with ease. I would not want to use this with a heavier gun than a Glock G43. All in all, I love this holster, but would like to try the ankle holster to see whats more comfortable. (Posted on 12/12/2018)
Perfect for me Review by recon29

Works as stated. I love this. I wear cargo shorts and pants for work. I also live in S.E Florida so I wear shorts most of the time. I practiced with this holster during dry fire weekly training. Works perfectly. I wouldn't use this setup if I am in dress pants because of the pockets being smaller and tighter. As stated in the instructions: do not reholster with the holster in your pocket. I wouldn't use if you like tight pants and skinny jeans. (Posted on 10/26/2018)
Just looking at the pictures...Not an Owner of this... Review by Darruk
Quality

I won't speak ill of Alien Gear, I really like my current Alien Gear Holsters, They are good quality and reliable in their function. However, I look at this model and find myself thinking I would never buy one of these.

1) The half shell design is a concern for me. Even though the trigger looks well covered, it's not enough coverage over all. Looks like it not conceal as well sitting do to lack of curved edges

2) The skeleton design of some pieces is not appealing, and seems to be more about cost-cutting than weight,

3) The price point seems fair, but still high for what you're actually getting. I will give that the modular attribute adds value, just not enough for me.

I ended up going with a competitor who made a full shell design in Kydex. Also no shells were available for my Sig model pistol. (Posted on 10/19/2018)
needs work Review by dean

I agree with another reviewer that while I love other alien gear products, the pocket holster is a disappointment. the gun feels loose and rattles in holster. the adjustable retention is good but it feels bulky and prints more than a soft pocket holster. I also agree that I paid too much but I bought this for my sig 238 and because I bought a core carry pack for another gun, at least I can use the shell from the pocket holster to use with the core carry pack.

Not recommended Review by Powernoodle

I have been a fan of the AlienGear cloak slide holster, and own about a dozen of them for various guns. The AlienGear pocket holster, however, is a disappointment. While it does function as intended, it is made of a cheapy feeling injected molded plastic, and retention of the gun is poor. It will hold the gun upside down, but a slight shake and it falls out. The holster is bulkier than it needs to be in my opinion, and the side that touches your leg is not flat resulting in raised area of the holster uncomfortably pushing against your leg. AlienGear is on the right track, but this holster needs to evolve greatly before it will compete against basic kydex holsters from other makers that are sturdier and more comfortable. At something like $53 shipped, I would say this holster is $30 overpriced. I will still be a fan of AlienGear, but not the pocket holster as currently configured. This one will probably be returned. Thanks. (Posted on 9/12/2018)
Very Nice Product Review by Ryan

I'm very pleased with this product, as it fits with my other shapeshift products, and opens up a safe way to carry my G43 in my pocket depending on my wardrobe. It does a decent job of masking the gun when in my pocket and helps distribute the weight as well.

It looks a lot bulkier than it is, but it's really not as bad and I found it fit nicely in my Duluth Dry on the Fly shorts - which were loose fitting.

If you are looking for a nice way to carry in your pocket safely, I would recommend investing in this product. Like my experience with all AlienGear products so far, it has exceeded my expectations for build, fit and finish, and overall value. (Posted on 9/8/2018)
