Ruger LC9 ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
An IWB holster should be equal parts comfortable, concealable and customizable. The ShapeShift Ruger LC9 IWB holster is a modular system made in America with highly durable, comfortable and low-profile components.

The Shift Shell, which is mounted to the IWB backer at one point, can be uninstalled from the IWB holster and added to any of the available ShapeShift carry systems. This means the IWB holster you purchased is also an OWB belt slide, an IWB appendix holster and an OWB paddle holster.

It can be reconfigured in a few moments without any tools.

The IWB backer was designed for comfort and utility. There are four layers: perforated neoprene that wicks sweat from the body and ventilates the holster backer, a layer of flexible spring steel inside the backer for malleable support, an inner layer of ballistic nylon for durability and strength, and a resilient front layer of thermo elastomer Alien Skin that adds drag.

All those layers are edge bound, and comfortably mold to the waistline. They move and react to the body as a unit.

By raising or lowering the clips without the need for tools, the cant and ride height can be adjusted for individualized concealability and accessibility. An adjustable retention unit can be installed for a tighter or looser draw.

The Shift Shell that is mounted to the holster backer is made from an injection-molded polymer that will durably withstand daily use. It's made to precisely fit the Ruger LC9. The shell and the holster backer were designed to eliminate bulk so that the holster system is low-profile.

All components are proudly made in America.

The holster is covered by our Forever Warranty. If any parts break for any reason, we'll repair or replace them free of charge. We also offer a 30-day test drive.

Try the holster out for a month, and if within those 30 days you find that the holster doesn't quite work you, we'll buy it back from you. No questions asked.

Every aspect of this holster was made for you, the concealed carrier.

Shapeshift 4.0 Review by Jerry
Quality

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)
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)
Not too bad After I finally got it!!!! Review by N/A
Quality

IDK why some of the extra pieces I received were either in the pkg. or affixed to my shell but after talking to customer and viewing too many other holsters, I was able to figure out the parts. I finally got it on my person and it is very comfy. Have wore it all day today 8/11/2020. I understand being busy but not hiring extra help to keep your customers happy. Really going to have to need a new holster bad before I order another one from Aliengear. The shipping was not days or weeks but months. I did buy an all leather shoulder holster from another company and got it in a week as they had a returned one like I needed. I wanted on from AG but I damn sure was not waiting 2-3 months for delivery. All I can say is order at your own risk. And the men that work for AG that does the videos, yeah they are not that easy to put on, at least the first time!!
