Ruger LC9s ShapeShift Core Carry Pack


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 LC9s ShapeShift Modular Holster Kit

The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

What if you could get more from a Ruger LC9s holster? Carry any way you wanted to when you wanted to? Switch between IWB and appendix, and OWB carry as you saw fit when the situation warranted?

Most of the time that require you purchase multiple LC9s holsters, one for each type of carry. That requires time spent looking up the various makes and models, and finding one that will work. But what if you didn't have to?

The Alien Gear ShapeShift was designed to change that. The ShapeShift is a modular carry system, which is the culmination of more than two years spent on design, research and development. We have created a carry system to address nearly every manner of carry imaginable.

The secret is the shell system of the ShapeShift. The ShapeShift's retention shells, unlike other retention shells, use a friction-locking rail to attach to a holster backer for a hybrid holster design or to another shell to create an ultra-durable molded polymer pancake holster, precisely molded for your Ruger LC9s.

You select the carry method by attaching the backer and belt attachment you prefer.

Carry with a Ruger LC9s IWB holster by selecting the larger backer, a traditional winged IWB hybrid holster with adjustable belt clips to set the ride height and cant of your preference. The backer is similar to our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster, streamlined for greater comfort but still retaining the neoprene backer and spring steel core for comfort.

You can also switch the smaller backer for an LC9s appendix holster, by attaching the appendix carry clip. This holster backer likewise has the neoprene backer and spring steel core; few appendix carry holsters will be in the same universe as this holster for comfort.

You can also attach the belt slide clips when attaching the shell to the smaller backer for an LC9s belt slide OWB holster. OWB concealment has never been easier or more comfortable, and with the LC9s' compact dimensions, you can effectively conceal with as little as an untucked T-shirt.

You can also assemble both of the shells to create an OWB pancake holster, including both a belt slide or Ruger LC9s paddle holster. You can change the belt attachment, just like the belt attachment on our Cloak Mod OWB holster.

The ShapeShift includes a passive retention bar that can be installed on any holster configuration, and dialed to your exact preferred retention setting. In the paddle holster configuration, an active retention device can also be installed for full Level II retention.

The ShapeShift also comes with Alien Gear's comprehensive guarantee, including 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.

You may never want to carry with anything else.

Another excellent Alien Gear holster! Review by George
This package arrived for me on Saturday and I was very pleased by how quickly it arrived! Inside was the Carry Pack I ordered as well as a Single Cloak mag carrier for my LC9S. I unpacked everything and took a look at the various holster configurations before deciding to try out the Belt Slide configuration.

Everything with assembling the holster was very easy to understand and took me all of maybe 5 minutes to configure. I have been happily wearing the holster and mag carrier for the past two days and they are very comfortable. Both the pistol and the magazine are seated well into the holsters with no retention issues whatsoever. I have no wiggle or sliding for either pistol or magazine, yet both come out of their respective holsters without hanging up or dragging my belt into my armpit.

This makes the fifth Alien Gear holster system I have purchased for the various pistols I own and I continue to be very pleased with the quality and comfort of these holsters. I love them so much, my son and daughter both now have Alien Gear for their respective sidearms after hearing me talk about mine so much. I quite frankly cannot say enough good things about this product or company. Keep up the excellent work! (Posted on 4/7/2019)
Great kit Review by Tom
wow, The IWB holster is very comfortable. The one thing that would have made this kit perfect would be to include an extra inside portion of the shell. (Posted on 1/14/2018)
