Kimber Micro 9 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
The usual Kimber Micro 9 IWB holster will certainly conceal and carry...but does it do so as well as it could? A lot of them really don't.

One problem with a lot of Micro 9 IWB rigs is the materials aren't the most comfortable. Another issue is that some of them are just HUGE, which makes carrying a small gun less convenient than it's supposed to be. Some of the most widely available makers also don't incorporate adjustable retention; you're supposed to live with the holster how it comes from the factory.

Do you have to accept this? No, you don't.

We think that all aspects of a holster matter, as a Micro 9 holster IWB that you don't like to wear that much will be one that you won't. We also think that you need to be confident in the fit and retention, else you'll find a different one to carry with.

Those are exactly what the ShapeShift Micro 9 IWB holster is designed to excel at.

Here's how:

Our Shift Shell attaches to the holster base at one anchor point, rather than at multiple points. That allows us to reduce the size of the backer, making it less intrusive to wear.

The backer is designed for comfort, with a Cool Vent perforated neoprene backer that wicks away moisture and breathes. The core is made of layers of woven ballistic nylon and spring steel, which flex when the holster is put on. This seats the holster firmly against you but also conforms to your shape, wearing naturally and comfortably.

The shell itself is locked when attached the holster, so the pistol is totally secured and the trigger guard fully wrapped. Retention is also adjustable by means of the Adjustable Retention Unit. Dial in the hold you want.

You get your choice of belt clips - standard clips, J-, C-, or O-clips are all available - which can also be adjusted for ride height and grip cant, and without the need of any tools.

Not convinced? We'll buy the holster back during the first month of ownership if you aren't satisfied.

However, if you decide to keep it (and we're pretty sure you will!) the holster is fully warrantied for life. Any issue will be fixed or you get a brand new holster.

It's okay. You can shift to a better way to carry.

Shapeshift 4.0 Review by Jerry
Quality
Price

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)
Doesn't work with Crimson Grip Tracer Review by Frustrated purchaser
Quality

I did a lot of research and read the description thoroughly before ordering. Waited a month to get this. My gun doesn't fit. The packaging says "without crimson trace grip". Now I have to go through the exchange process and probably wait another month!! If you have the crimson tracer you need the Streamlight Cloak Tuck 3.5 instead. Yeah - totally intuitive. :( :( :( :( (Posted on 9/22/2020)
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)
