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.

I am liking this holster pack Review by Thud

I almost never submit reviews, feedback or surveys. Everywhere you go from the grocery store, drug store, doctors and seemingly every time you buy anything online I get swamped with requests to do the above. I can say that I am beginning to warm-up to the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack. There are so many configurations and options it almost boggles the mind sorting and watching Alien Gear how to videos really helped. I am an IWB wearer and I find this configuration very comfortable; can't wait to try the other setups. I chatted with Alien Gear reps about getting a few extra weld nuts and button screws and they accommodated me. This is why I am happy to recommend Alien Gear. (Posted on 9/23/2019)

Comfortable to wear. Easy to switch around from one configuration to another. A little wider than some other holsters but this makes it easier to put the pistol back in the holster. (Posted on 9/13/2019)

Great rig for a good value Review by Todd

I've always been a strong side hip carry guy, never even tried the other options such as appendix etc. This pack allowed to me try different options without having to buy a holster for 100$ and then find out I disliked XYZ mode of carry. It's sturdy, fits well and functions well. I did have a bit of a issue that my adjustable retention knob would not turn. So I simply took it off, saw that it was misaligned, fixed it and put it back on. Took me all of 3 minutes to do.

It comes in a nice box, packed well, with easy instructions. Yes there is some "assembly" required, but if that is a deal breaker then I'm lost as to how you even stripped down your carry weapon for maintenance.

It's a great deal, especially for those new to EDC. I've settled on my go to of strong side hip belt slide and it's comfy and retains my weapon well.

Just buy one already. (Posted on 9/1/2019)
All around good system. Review by Edd

I have had the chance to check out this system and am very pleased with what I have found. The IWB is my favorite configuration, but for those days when I am working around the ranch and concealment isn't a concern the paddle system was extremely comfortable and practical, While I am not a big fan of appendix carry that holster was also very comfortable when placed in the right spot, it also allowed me to use the same position as the IWB when I needed less printing in lighter clothes. The only thing I didn't try was the slide belt, mainly because everything I wanted was covered by the other units. (Posted on 8/17/2019)

Alien Gear Holsters should one day make Shape Shift shells for an FN 509 and a Heckler & Koch USP9 compact for this set someday. (Posted on 7/30/2019)
great holsters, lefties pay attention Review by Anuran

if you, like me, are left handed, and you want a holster to fit a gun configured for left handed use, the half shell design will give you absolutely no trouble and be an amazing holster. if, however you, like me, want a full shell holster, you may need to do some modification. the gun I'm currently carrying is a CZ P-07, with the mag release swapped for left handed operation, the first time I tried to holster the gun, it wouldn't engage the retention, when I finally got iy to engage, it dropped the magazine free because the right half of the shell does not have the relief cut that the left side does for the mag release. it would be amazing to see the holster modified with the following relief cuts placed on both sides: magazine release clearance, decocker/safety relief both sides. other than these two minor inconveniences, this holster is well constructed, durable, and will last me years. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. (Posted on 7/29/2019)

Great set up, IF you don't do external modifications to your pistol Review by TF

PROS: This is a GREAT set , A LOT of options, GREAT value, GREAT quality.
GREAT CUST. service
EXCEPT their website chat help, initially my kit came with the long slide release (which is only for the 1911, according to the booklet), and I asked her to send the right part, she was RUDE and said if its in my kit then it was the right one, I told her the booklet that came with the kit said that the larger thumb lock was only for 1911 and that i just wanted the correct part, she then said it will fit dont worry about it, and kept saying i was wrong, she just kept insisting it was the right part and that i was wrong, and then just closed the chat window? so I called them and they were A LOT better on the phone.

CONS: you cannot have any external MODIFICATON on the pistol or it wont fit in the shells, (I.E. I had the Vickers Extended slide release on my G26 and it wouldnt fit in the shell because it stuck out too far.)
you cant have some larger sights because they wont fit in the small slit they have for the OEM sights, depending on pistol.
Sent me the wrong parts twice.
quicker holster wear from the material
the quick connect system is great but i can see the little connector pieces wearing out quickly becasue they are just plastic and needing to replace them
the shell is fit almost perfectly to the gun, but when you use both sides together there is some rattle, and you get a easier and smoother draw from kydex than from this polymer type plastic that they use since its so rigid.

CONCLUSION: GREAT Kit if you dont do any external modifications to your pistol or if you are just starting and want to easily see which was you want to carry your pistol, just buy the kit and you can try out all the different ways.

Very good system Review by Joseph

I have been using this system for about 2 years now and it still feels like it did when I first got it. I really like the fact that I can switch up how I carry, depending on what I am going to be doing. The IWB is very comfortable to wear for a long period of time, I also like it when i can go from IWB to OWB within a few minutes. (Posted on 7/9/2019)
