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.

Good product only 1 issue Review by Tesh

I am very pleased with my rig. I carry IWB it sits nicely at the 4-5 position i really never notice it when sitting. The only issue i have had is it slips down on my underwear so I end up wearing it inside my underwear on my skin to get the grip to keep it from sliding. I wish it had an option to add some kind of grip material to the rig to help with the grip. (Posted on 10/14/2020)
dissapointed Review by jesse

i was really excited about receiving this product. unfortunately when i did i was extremely disappointed. i would say that this system seems to be fairly durable. however after using this system i encountered major issues drawing and holstering. i am using a full size p320 m17. and in the iwb configuration it is almost impossible to draw without bringing my pants with it. now i did try loosening the retention to the point the gun would fall out when tilted upside down, this did not help the problem seems to be with the grippy backing and the length of the barrel. also holstering is also an issue when you tighten the belt the trigger gaurd seems to get distorted and tends to rack the slide when trying to holster.

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Jesse, Thank you so much for your feedback and we do apologize for the drawing and holstering issues here and we do want to make things right! With our IWB holsters the option with out the thumb release is called Passive retention. This type of retention relies on the retention from the adjustable retention unit and the retention from your belt. If you wear your belt tighter we recommend to loosen the retention unit to give it a good draw. Because these are passive retention holsters, this will cause the holster to be loose when you turn it upside down. We hope this helps!

Excellent product Review by Chris

I have been using this product with my S&W M&P Shield 9 2.0 PC every day for several months now and I am very satisfied with it. Everything fits well and has stayed in good working order. Very little wear noted. I generally use the AIWB appendix in warm weather and will probably switch to the IWB or belt slide when we hit jacket weather.
I have since added a second shell for my 1911, which I generally use the OWB paddle for and have also ordered a drop-leg expansion to run with the same pistol.
Just a quick note on the 1911 shell - the belt slide half-shell option does not work on the Springfield Ronin 1911, as the safety pushes the pistol out from the holster base and this messes up the retention. It does fit perfectly in the full shell, so you gain the thumb release but you do loose the option to run that particular gun tighter to your body.
It's a little pricey, but works great and is well made, so overall a 5* from me. (Posted on 9/21/2020)

Box came with everything that was advertised. Assembly was a little tricky, but I managed to figure it out. My biggest concern was that the Glock 17 holster wouldn't fit my Glock but there gun fits fine with no retention issues. (Posted on 9/18/2020)

Would love to try the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack. But NA for Bersa and Kahr. Seems like a limited applicability base. Ratings are random just to get the review submitted. (Posted on 9/12/2020)

When I received the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack I never expected I would use all the different combinations.. My favorite is the IWB Cloak tuck, l wear this everyday possible. I like having the ability to switch it up with the appendix and the paddle holster. I have bought other ShapeShift shells so I can carry any of my guns by making a few quick changes.. This is the best holster I have ever purchased! It is very comfortable and durable, I never leave home with out it! Now I'm waiting for the ShapeShift shoulder holster to get here.
