Glock - 43 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
The IWB holster is the standard for concealed carry, but the ShapeShift Glock 43 IWB holster is a new standard for holster design. This holster design is the result of more than two years of design work and testing, and the results will speak for themselves when you put them on.

Few Glock 43 waistband holsters can deliver a carry experience with as much comfort, adjustability or quality of fitment as the ShapeShift. The holster shell is injection-molded for the Glock 43 and only the Glock 43. It fits perfectly, right out of the box.

Retention is also fully adjustable. Install the retention bar, and you can dial in your exact desired level of retention.

The backer is very similar in design to our award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster, but has been updated and streamlined to be even better. The backlayer is closed-cell neoprene, which cushions the wearer but also repels any moisture and keeps the holster - and your pistol - completely dry. The core is spring steel, which aids fit and retention but also comfort as you don't feel the pistol while wearing it. The top surface, just like the 3.0, is Alien Skin, a high-drag surface that helps hold your gun without touching the surface.

Belt clips are adjustable for ride height and grip cant, so you can set the holster to carry exactly where and how you want. Additionally, the belt clips make this holster fully compatible with our IWB holster mount systems, allowing you to dock your holster on any surface that you install a dock on.

You also get the benefit of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee.

Take the first 30 days of ownership to wear the holster and evaluate it. This 30-day "Test Drive" period is for you to experience the holster and decide if it is the kind of holster you wanted. If not, contact us before the first 30 days of ownership is up, and we'll buy the holster back.

We also give you a lifetime warranty. If there is an issue, any issue whatsoever, with this holster, we will fix it or we will send you a new one for as along as you have it. We stand by our products, which is why we offer one of the most comprehensive guarantees in the business.

Once you try the ShapeShift on, you very well may never look at any other holster ever again.

Shapeshift 4.0 Review by Jerry
Quality

Purchased the Shapeshift 4.0 for my M&P 40 and Ruger LCPII. First off, the quality of the holster is amazing. Being able to adjust the tension of the shell is awesome. You can really fine tune the tension for your draw and how your pants fit around it. It did take a few days to get it right but now I dont have to mess around with it. Its super comfortable and after a few days I dont even notice it there. I carry at the 5:00 position due to my portly size.

I will add that I started to carry my M&P fullsize with a standard belt and it was no good. kept pulling down my pants on that side. However, it is fine with the LCPII and a standard belt. Fast foward a week and I have an actual carry belt that doesnt sag. HUGE difference it makes. Pants dont sag anymore with the fullsize.

I absolutley love this holster and with the right belt, EDC is no problem with a fullsize. (Posted on 10/2/2020)

I bought one for my S&W4006 and I love it. But I wish you still sold it I have a few friends with the same firearm that are looking for a quality holster but I don't see that model listed as an option anymore. (Posted on 9/30/2020)
extremely loose Review by Jeff

the holster fits my hip nice. But it doesn't hold my gun tight...or even snug for that matter. It just sits in there extremely loose. I would not recommend the 4.0 to anyone that wants to actually carry their weapon. (Posted on 9/19/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Jeff, thank you so much for your feedback! We do apologize for the fitment of the gun here. We definitely recommend in this case to reach out to our customer service representatives. All our holsters offer the option to tighten the retention to your preferred tightness. Please feel free to reach out and we can get you taken care of!

Not For Me Review by Kirk
Quality

I'm not a big man, 5'7" 160 lb. But there was no way I could make this holster work for me. I have a very good belt that supports my holster well but the whole rig with weapon tries to pull off my pants on that side no matter how tight I hook my belt. It's comfortable around the house as long as I'm sitting down but have to continually hitch up my pants and holster. I'm carrying a S&W 9mm semi. For the money I would trade it for a smaller holster in a heartbeat. But alas I am past my trial period and stuck with it. (Posted on 9/18/2020)

I have a box with about 20 holsters for various guns and this is the one I actually use. This is the best holster I own for my S&W M&P. It's comfortable, great retention, smooth draw and reholster. And the price is great! Keep up the great work! (Posted on 9/12/2020)

Ordered this product about a month ago was informed that could be possible 4 to 6 weeks for shipping was not upset about that at all. When I finally did receive the product the product is Bar None above other holster companies because I have several other holsters, still getting used to it but definitely love the fact that it fits on me so perfectly so smug and nice my firearm fits in their beautifully don't have to worry about it ever fallen out or getting caught up or or misfiring or anything like that product Bar None the best on the market couldn't be happier (Posted on 8/21/2020)

Absolutely love this holster ! Once I figured out all the adjustments and found the one right for me , its like I dont even have it on !! I love how interchangeable the holster is and exspecially once I get another gun all I have to do is purchase a new shell and not have to get use to another holster. Would definately recommend this holster ! Thanks (Posted on 8/15/2020)

I have been using for 2yrs, 7day a week 12 to 14hrs a day. Zero complains. Looks and feels just like new. Well made. I can switch, to IWB, appendix, OWB. very quickly. I have Sprinfield XD, I got a Glock and just had to buy a shell I wanted. Great invention. Wish it was the first purchase for a holster, could have saved a lot of money. (Posted on 8/15/2020)
Not too bad After I finally got it!!!! Review by N/A
Quality

IDK why some of the extra pieces I received were either in the pkg. or affixed to my shell but after talking to customer and viewing too many other holsters, I was able to figure out the parts. I finally got it on my person and it is very comfy. Have wore it all day today 8/11/2020. I understand being busy but not hiring extra help to keep your customers happy. Really going to have to need a new holster bad before I order another one from Aliengear. The shipping was not days or weeks but months. I did buy an all leather shoulder holster from another company and got it in a week as they had a returned one like I needed. I wanted on from AG but I damn sure was not waiting 2-3 months for delivery. All I can say is order at your own risk. And the men that work for AG that does the videos, yeah they are not that easy to put on, at least the first time!!
