ShapeShift Ruger SR40c Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


Some just don't prefer to conceal on the waistline, which is where a Ruger SR40c shoulder holster fits in nicely. Unfortunately, many shoulder holsters wind up in a holster drawer. Why is that?


Shoulder holsters don't always carry comfortably, as they don't necessarily sit in the best position nor distribute the weight of the pistol in the best manner. Retention isn't always the best, either, as many are universal holsters that can technically hold any pistol because they aren't really made for any pistol.


Alien Gear's shoulder holster for Ruger SR40c pistols will carry comfortably, with far more customizability than any other shoulder holster on the market. You can set the holster to carry better for you than any other will let you, with custom fitment and retention.


How?


The shoulder straps hook to the belt, allowing the weight to be distributed more evenly for greater comfort. This also helps the pistol ride closer to the body for easier concealment. The straps are joined via a clover harness that lets the straps adjust to find a more natural position on the body. We also pad the straps with our CoolVent neoprene, which cushions the wearer while wicking away moisture and breathing against the skin.


The holster base and mag carrier base can be adjusted up and down, so they ride in the location you want them in. They are also adjustable for cant angle. Carry the pistol horizontal, with a positive or negative cant, or fully vertical. The mag carrier base, which can be equipped with up to two Alien Gear mag carriers, can be as well.


The fitment is custom, with a ShapeShift half shell, fully wrapping the trigger guard and fitting the pistol perfectly. Passive retention is fully adjustable, and there is also an included removable thumb break should you desire to carry with one.


Wondering if you'll really find it that comfortable? Take it for a 30 Day Test Drive, a trial period after purchase that's included in our Iron-Clad Guarantee on all holsters sold. You can return the holster for a refund during that period if unsatisfied. We also fully warranty the holster for life.

I got the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster as a Christmas gift and at first thought, "Wow, that's a lotta stuff to strap on!" But after I got it all adjusted and fit I found I actually had all my gear and no excessive bulk.. Access to my firearm was quick and efficient and comfort was amazing. I can even get in and our of a car with no hassle. This is a great system and I highly recommend it. (Posted on 1/4/2021)

I recently bought a ShapeShift shoulder harness. I am totally blown away by the quality and comfort of this rig. There are so many well thought out features, and custom adjustments. I waited a long time to get this and now I wish I had not waited. My old rig was 20+ years old and very uncomfortable. This rig feels like it was tailored for me. Best holster available. I am so proud to own this holster!! Thanks again Alien Gear! Hope you come out with apparel soon I want to buy a hat and shirt...just to show off!!! (Posted on 11/20/2020)

Well thought out system Review by Chuck
Quality

The shoulder holster has nicely colored leather and the system is very well thought out. The variation in adjustment is almost limitless, between various strap length positions, to cant angle adjustments. It takes a lot of trial and error to get the fit just right, but once you get it custom fitted, the time it takes is worth it. I love the thumb release, and it may be my favorite feature. The retention is nice, and is adjustable on the shell side. The amount of available parts can be eye-opening, and you will have sore fingers from tinkering, but once you have everything down, you will feel like a modular master. It is so awesome to pull the shell of the holster and use it on an outside/inside ShapeShift waistband holster. Thanks for a great product that finally allows me to use a shoulder holster where my firearm is pointed safely downward, instead of horizontally at someone behind me (like at my passenger on my motorcycle).

Good shoulder rig, can use some improvment Review by LugerMan.com

Got a double sided shoulder rig for my Sig 320 45 full size. Left and right.

At first rig appeared bulky and uncomfortable.
Found a design problem with a retention strap been positioned on the inside of the holster.

Changes the lockup and gun position, not a good idea.

But holster works good without the retention.
If you need them, look elsewhere.

I think that needs work.

2nd day in holster started braking in and now feels good and secure.

Like new shoes it needs to be broken in and settle in.

I now find it comfortable and better fit than my competitor shoulder double rigs, for my other gun pairs.

Durability and longevity of it will have to be seen, so far so good. If it lasts a year it will be worth it. (Posted on 10/21/2020)

I' been wearing this holster for about a month now and it only gets more comfortable. After adjusting the angle up on the pistol holder the release is sure and solid. Fit and concealability are top notch. I have recommended this holster to my friends! (Posted on 10/1/2020)
Wow, quality at fantastic price Review by Wally

The innovation and thought that went into the Shape Shift systems is incredible. I have ordered over $400.00 in holster items for a variety of handguns recently and have been amazed at each one. I could not be happier. When I was active in law enforcement and undercover, I wore a Galco Miami Classic for years. It was nice, however, you got what you got - no real options for cant, angle of magazines, etc. The AE gear is incredibly adjustable. I'm amazed at the amount of thought you all had to put this together. And very pleased. I love the interchangeability of the parts and I can mix and match to meet needs of the day. Thank you Alien Gear, I'm a believer in the extra-terrestrial !!!! (Posted on 9/26/2020)
Meh Review by Chris

Very comfortable holster. Well made and easy to adjust for custom fit. Horrible pistol release. If I were to ever need to draw the pistol in any semblance of a hurry, I would be dead. It almost takes two hands due to the catch not releasing correctly. I thought I had it figured out, but it still sucks. No matter how the thumb button is pressed, the hook doesn't fully retract and the pistol needs violently jerked. (Posted on 8/25/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Chris! Thank you so mcu for your feedback and we do apologize for the thumb release issue here. It sounds like the issue may be the retention unit itself. When using the thumb release the retention unit needs to be backed all the way out so the inner notch is not sticking out at all. We hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions!
