Ruger LC9 ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster

$51.88

Ruger LC9 AIWB Holster


A lightweight compact 9mm sits easy on the waistline, especially when tucked in an appendix holster. Appendix holsters, however, have a history of questionable comfortability and adaptability.

The ShapeShift Ruger LC9 AIWB holster was designed to mold to the body and react to the concealed carrier's lifestyle. It's a modular holster that can be reconstructed into any of the available ShapeShift carry systems, like a classic IWB, OWB belt slide or an OWB paddle.

The backer is crafted with four materials: perforated neoprene that wicks sweat away from the body, an inner layer of ballistic nylon for durability, a flexible spring steel core for support and a front layer of an Alien Skin thermo elastomer textile for drag and resilient strength. These layers are all edge bound together.

The backer will move with and sit tightly against the waistline.

The Shift Shell, which encloses the trigger guard and the slide with reliable passive retention, is mounted securely to that backer. The shell is made from an injection-molded polymer that is shaped to fit the contours of the Ruger LC9. Install the adjustable retention unit for a tighter or looser hold on the handgun.

With a single clip that reaches up and over the pants waist, the entire holster clasps to the concealed carrier's belt.

The entire holster is covered by Alien Gear's Forever Warranty. If a part or piece of material breaks for whatever reason, we will repair or replace it free of charge.

The ShapeShift Ruger LC9 holster also has a 30-day test drive. If you find within the first month that the holster doesn't quite fit your needs, we will buy it back from you. No questions asked.

This holster was designed to adapt to your lifestyle.

The benchmark for A/IWB holsters Review by CAJ

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns
Quality

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Best AIWB I've Found Review by Scott
Quality

I have a drawer full of holsters that are just uncomfortable.. I prefer to appendix carry and I couldn't find one that fit my body type, and was all day comfortable. I looked at the Shapeshift AIWB when it first came out and I thought it looked too bulky.

I finally pulled the trigger after the last Kydex I bought, kept digging into my leg when I was seated. I'm sorry, I waited. All day comfort, standing or sitting. It's not too bulky and it fits my S&W Shield like a glove. I could not be more pleased and if you prefer to appendix carry, you have to try one. (Posted on 8/24/2018)
Only one problem Review by Michael

This holster is extremely comfortable and well made. I had an issue with the retention adjustment, called customer service and got a new one free of charge in a couple of days. The only problem that I have is the overall thickness. I got this holster for my g26. I can't conceal this holster at all. So it sits in the drawer and never gets worn. (Posted on 8/14/2018)
