Glock - 43 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

Glock 43 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

Not everyone wants just one Glock 43 holster. Why be confined to just one method of carry if you don't want to? At that, why go broke chasing that perfect holster for IWB concealed carry, another one for appendix carry, and OWB holsters for easy concealment or range use? It isn't unheard of for people to spend almost as much on holsters as they did on their gun!

But what if you didn't have to? What if there was a modular Glock 43 holster that was able to do all of the above?

Just such a G43 holster exists: the ShapeShift by Alien Gear.

The ShapeShift is a culmination of more than two years of research and development in devising not a holster but an entire carry system that allows the user to configure it to carry in whatever manner they wish when they want to. How this is able to be done comes down to the unique shell system. The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards. These fit together using our proprietary locking rail and twist locks.

Included along with these shells are two backers and several types of belt attachment. These allow you to create the holster of your choice, whether it's a Glock 43 IWB holster, appendix holster or OWB holster that you want to assemble.

For a traditional IWB Glock 43 concealed carry holster, select the larger IWB backer. Attach a trigger guard shell and a full-length shell and dock them to the backer. This configuration is the traditional hybrid IWB holster style that many are used to. Just like our other IWB holster, the belt clips are adjustable for ride height and cant. Additionally, the materials are the same as our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster, and will likewise conceal and carry in incredible comfort.

The smaller backing pad, which accepts the same half-shell and full shell, gives you two holster options. Attach the larger belt clip for a Glock 43 appendix holster.

However, if you prefer to primarily or on occasion concealed carry with a high-ride Glock 43 OWB holster, attach the belt slide clips and you'll have created a high-ride belt slide hybrid OWB holster that pulls tight to the body and carries comfortably.

If you prefer to open carry on occasion, you can also assemble the two full-length shells and insert the paddle attachment into the attachment port on either side. This gives you a robust Glock 43 paddle holster, which is also adjustable for cant.

Wondering about retention? The ShapeShift has both passive and active retention devices. The trigger guard shells can have a retention bar installed on them to provide passive retention. Choose light, moderate or heavy passive resistance. Active retention devices, such as a finger-lock and thumb release, are also included with the ShapeShift, giving you the option of passive or active retention - or both.

Just like our other holsters, this Glock 43 holster system comes with Alien Gear's Iron Clad Guarantee. This includes our 30-day "Test Drive" trial period. During the first 30 days of ownership, you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied.

We also cover the ShapeShift with a lifetime warranty. So long as you own this holster, we will fix any issue that should arise with it or send you a brand new one.

Welcome to the last holster you may ever need.

Core Carry Pack Review by Joey
Quality

Just received the core pack today, couple of weeks ahead of schedule, Happy about that. Already I am loving this holster and the various configurations. Love the fact that I can release the pistol and the shift shell from the OWB Paddle configuration and put it away when I'm around the house. No bulky parts or holster hanging off my belt. When I'm ready to slap it back on, it's as easy as pushing a button, and wa-la, I'm packing again. Will write more later, but already loving this. Going to order one for my larger pistol next.

This is a well engineered product that is very versatile. I purchased it for my Beretta 96 but unfortunately it doesn't fit my gun with the Elite (thick) slide. However, I liked the system so much I kept it anyway with the idea of getting a shell for another model gun I might acquire.. (Posted on 6/7/2020)
Best Holsters/ Customer Service Review by Austin

I purchased this Core Carry Pack from a third party seller here in Guam and immediately noticed the quality of the products to be some of the best I've ever had. The holsters, Shells for the Firearms, and the neoprene leather IWB pad are some of the highest quality and extremely well designed holsters/ accessories ever made. Unfortunately, I also noticed a couple of the RH (Right Handed) clips for the Appendix carry were missing from the box. I contacted customer support right away and got on the instant messaging chat to state my issue. I was immediately greeted with a representative who was able to help me with my concern. After a few messages and information trading later, she informed me that I would be sent a couple of replacement clips as soon as possible. I just want to thank Alien Gear Representative Cassandra and the entire company for being so customer friendly and helpful when it comes to their products. I completely stand behind this company in full support and will definitely be ordering more holsters and accessories! (Posted on 6/5/2020)
Couldn't be happier Review by John 1791

Easily the best holster/system I've ever owned. Prior military, and avid patriot, I pestered my group of friends, and consistently heard that Alien Gear made what I was looking for. Slides in easily, and remains tightly secured; comfortable to carry all day, and the quality craftsmanship that you'd expect from an American made product,
This is my EDC holster, and nothing on the market even comes close. I guarantee, disappointment will never materialize, especially with their well priced Core Pack. My core pack accidentally came with right handed clips for my appendix carry holster (i carry southpaw; they say i'm more creative than you), and their customer support was superb, getting the appropriate clips shipped out to me without hassle.

All jokes aside, these holsters are the sh*t.

Its much less sturdy than I expected, and has almost no retention on my P229. The weapon can fall right out. After trying to work with AlienGear support we weren't able to get this working. (Posted on 5/31/2020)

Iv never looked forward to leaving a review till now this product is great and the company is even better fast responsive and the holster kit is just perfect the only thing I could recommend if they read these is maybe on the next gen is a soft material built into the inside of the shell where it wont wear anything off the slide besides that I love each configuration and its just a great deal Iv recommended it to everyone who has a pistol or wants to buy one and I'd recommend it to anyone who has come this far to read the comments and that's my review on the core carry pack (Posted on 5/18/2020)

I bought this holster from my local gun shop after looking at different reviews on the site and YouTube...the reviews were not wrong. I purchased this for my Springfield mod2 3.3 and the different accommodations within this one pack is amazing. I plan on purchasing different shells for my different firearms. Now if only we can get a Hellcat shell. (Posted on 5/16/2020)
