Ruger LC380 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.

Ruger LC380 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

If you don't want more functionality from a Ruger LC380 holster, this isn't the solution for you. If you don't want to be able to set the retention to exactly the right tension setting, the ShapeShift isn't what you're looking for. If you don't like a comfortable carry, then there are plenty of holster models out there that don't carry comfortably.

But what if you DID want those things from an LC380 concealed carry holster? What if you want to carry IWB, OWB or in the appendix position, but wanted to be able to switch between them at a moment's notice? You can't very well carry your holster drawer everywhere with you.

Now you can. Alien Gear's ShapeShift isn't merely a holster - it's a modular carry system, that allows you to carry how you want, when you want, in total comfort and with a greater degree of customizability than you can get from any other holster design.

The core of the ShapeShift is our innovative shell design. The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards, which completely cover the frame and the slide up to the trigger guard. You can attach one of these shells to your choice of backing system or lock them together for a full-wrap pancake holster made from our proprietary ultra-durable polymer.

The backing system and attachments you attach set the manner of carry.

Select the larger winged backer for a traditional LC380 IWB holster. Enjoy the comfort of the backer, which is constructed from similar materials to our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster including a closed-cell neoprene backpad, spring steel core and Alien Skin top surface, but streamlined for easier deployment. The holster clips are adjustable for ride height and cant, allowing you to set the holster to your desired carry position.

Prefer a Ruger LC380 appendix carry holster? Attach a holster shell to the smaller backer and install the appendix IWB clip. Adjust to set cant angle to your preference.

For those occasions that you'd like to conceal but want to wear your LC380 outside the waistband, you can deploy the belt slide attachments to the smaller backer as well. That assembles an LC380 belt slide OWB holster that rides high and tight, concealing easily under an untucked shirt.

Or you can attach both shells together and install the paddle attachment for a Ruger LC380 paddle holster more durable and adjustable than any other on the market. Cant angle can be adjusted to your preference. You can also install active retention on this holster configuration in addition to the passive retention bar for a fully functional LC380 retention holster.

Like our other products, the ShapeShift Ruger LC380 holster comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, which includes a 30-day Test Drive trial period - during which you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied - and a comprehensive lifetime warranty on the holster itself.

We think you won't want to carry with anything else.

Great holster , poor belt clips Review by Shorty

This is the best IWB holster that i have ever worn , I wear it even when wearing shorts , with no printing . I wear this holster system with my firearm every day , for yours at a time , complete comfort . However the belt clips leave a lot to be desired , one of mine has stretched out the the point of being almost unusable , for the money paid , I would think that this would be better addressed . Though I have the shape shift holster , I have never had a reason to go into any other carry option besides the IWB , because this holster is so comfortable . Everyone experience might be different but with my Ruger LC9S pro , this system is more than i expect .... once again , besides the belt clips ( which I think are cheesy) . (Posted on 7/12/2020)
Underwhelmed. Review by Aaron

I recieved the shapeshifter holster as a gift from a friend and I was kind of excited to have a new holster for my 1911 para.
I tried each of the configurations and one after another left me disappointed and feeling like whoever designed it really likes transformers toys and doesn't carry a gun for a living.
I was so disappointed that I gave it back to my friend because it wasn't worth keeping even just to spare his feelings. (Posted on 7/9/2020)
My core pack is stellar, however??? Review by GB

New to AG my core-pack (M&P shield) was a gift, and it is nothing short of stellar! And already purchased the XD-9 and backpack expansion. However., nothing is perfect. Being a bigger kid than average (part body builder/part fat kid) the thumb lock (I truly appreciate) rubs against my belly. So if a change were up to me I would ask that the backing extend to include the thumb lock. Please & thank you. P.S. I would also like the cloak chest holster be adaptable to shape shifter?

READ Before Purchase - NO CLICK, NO RETENTION Review by GENE
Quality

Very disappointed with the shape shift system for all 4 carry options, I cannot carry my Glock 19 Gen 5 securely. The shell does not cover the trigger completely. It only covers it 2/3. Even with the retention screw turned to Max and level 2 thumb release installed for paddle holster mode, the gun will fall when turned upside down. There is no way these holsters are safe for concealed carry. What good is forever warranty if non of the holsters work properly to begin with. Also, the customer service is next to impossible to get in touch with and the shipping times are atrocious. I felt for the hype, but it is a dud for me. (Posted on 7/6/2020)

So many options with the core carry pack. This company is the best and easiest to work with I have met in many years. Absolutely first class people and no hassle exchanges. Would recommend them to everyone. (Posted on 7/2/2020)
Core Carry Pack Review by Joey

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
Quality

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)
