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.

Good quality and design BUT adds 4" to waist Review by Fatso

This is honestly a really nice holster. The materials and design are great. I like that everything is modular and can switch things out and customize it. HAVING SAID THAT... This holster is basically useless to me. I wear a size 32 waist and have gained a little weight in the last year or so. I cant wear this holster with any of my current pants. So this isnt really a problem with the holsters design or construction but with me being a fatty. Just know that if you get this holster you will need to size up 4-6" inches on your waist for it to work. I had to get a size 38 to make it work. I dont feel like buying a whole new wardrobe so Ill probably try something a little smaller. Id honestly return it as its useless to me now but I dont have the box anymore and with shipping etc it doesnt seem worth it. Thats one of the risks I guess. (Posted on 6/29/2019)
Great holsters Review by MIke

I bought my first one for my Glock 29. I have a medium frame at 5' 6" and I was amazed at how comfortable this holster is with that wide gun. I wore it everywhere for a week and barely noticed it. Make your adjustments and the weapon stays put! I bought one for my Glock 26 and plan to buy another for my Glock 43. Absolutely GREAT holsters. BTW, I rarely write reviews on anything...this one was very easy! (Posted on 6/12/2019)
Extremely comfortable Review by Dan R.

This thing is great. Never thought I'd be able carry a full size 1911 so comfortably. And for only around $55. That's pretty mind blowing. A plain Kydex holster costs more than that. The combination of functionality, customization and value is unmatched, in my opinion. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/11/2019)

Best IWB holster I have ever tried Review by Luke H

I have gone through a lot of IWB holster trying to find one that was secure and comfortable. This holster is great in all aspects. I have no trouble concealing with just a t-shirt and the retention is there to keep the gun safe. It is by far the most comfortable IWB holster I have ever had. (Posted on 5/14/2019)

Sturdy, comfy, versatile Review by Andy

I bought this for my Glock 23 and it fits like a glove. I have 4 other holsters and this one (although brand new) has been very comfortable to wear everywhere I go. I also bought an expansion pack for my Glock 42 and that fits great as well. Things were stuff and needed some elbow grease to get apart and tighten at first, but once the started that went away. I wasn't exactly sure how all this would fit together and the customer service lady sounded like she was in the USA, and helped me greatly. Easy to change, easy to draw, easy to reholster. Would purchase again, the only test left for me is the test of time (Posted on 3/28/2019)
Excellent Holster. Great quality and extremely comfortable. Review by Brawn

I have absolutely loved this holster. It is extremely comfortable. I initially purchased the core carry pack, but ultimately decided the IWB was my preferred setup. After wearing the holster all day, with a good part of sitting and walking, the holster is comfortable and non-fatiguing. Great price for a high-quality hybrid holster. (Posted on 3/26/2019)
Great Holster! Review by Zapper

Shape Shift 4.0 in a comfortable holster. I purchased an IWB and could feel the improvement over the 3.0 I have worn for about 3 years. Great packaging and instructions I'm going to try the level 2 retention button (included) verses the adjustable twisting retention. (Posted on 3/21/2019)
Glock 43; Impressive quality and confidence inspiring Review by Grooster

I bought this based on numerous YouTube reviews. It features an incredible level of detail and outstanding build quality. It's not bulky. The retention system works perfectly. I wear it at the 4:30 and it doesn't give while attached to a 14 oz gun belt. The neoprene backing is comfortable. I wear it all day while doing my normal routine and I never have to think about the security of the gun. Great product and much better than a kydex-only holster! (Posted on 3/11/2019)
