ShapeShift Shield 40 Pocket Holster by Alien Gear Holsters



If you want pocket carry to be as secure and comfortable as normal carry methods, the ShapeShift Shield 40 Pocket Holster delivers where so many others fall well short of the mark. We have applied the innovative design of the ShapeShift holster system to create a better breed of pocket holster, and you will notice the difference.


Start with the fit. Most designs of pocket holster for Shield 40 pistols are merely a pouch that the pistol is inserted into. The fitment is poor and causes other issues, especially if called upon to draw your firearm either in training or in the even you're required to defend yourself. Retention is merely adequate if you're lucky.


In short, such holsters barely do anything that you need a Smith and Wesson Shield 40 pocket holster to do.


The ShapeShift shell system is custom-molded, so you get good fitment and a good draw stroke right out of the packaging. The trigger guard is fully wrapped for greater protection, so you can feel secure in the knowledge that your gun is carried safely and securely. Our design keeps it safe so the gun can keep you safe.


Passive retention is adjustable, so you can dial the holster in for a tight hold or give it a slick draw. It's entirely your choice, and requires no tools of any kind.


Our Shield 40 pocket holster also includes a pocket catch. This is so the holster stays in the pocket upon drawing the pistol. Other designs will come out with the gun, requiring you to clear it or shoot through the holster. Ours functions as a holster should, giving you the stability necessary for a clean draw.


You also get Alien Gear Holsters' Iron-Clad Guarantee, including the 30 Day Test Drive trial period and Forever Warranty. We back this product for as long as you have it, and will repair any issue or replace it outright.

Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck... its a duck. Review by Juan

Absolutely enormous pocket holster, I'm a smaller person 5'6" 115lbs and in any pair of pants I own my weapon is completely visible. Not only is it a ginormous mass in my pocket it looks like a gun, quacks like a gun... its very obviously a gun. I tried to contact customer service on multiple occasions and got no response through phone call or email. Completely disappointed by the product and customer care. (Posted on 7/11/2020)

Great Holster, Great Value! Review by Martin

I was very impressed with this holster! It's very comfortable and even when I wear straight jeans it doesn't print like a gun. I like how you can use it in jeans, jackets, or coats and it works just fine. It's nice to be able to carry in the pocket and have the catching feature on your pocket. Overall would highly recommend to others! (Posted on 12/31/2019)

Just received the pocket carry holster for my Glock 43. I am very impressed with the design, comfort and quality of this holster. This is my second holster order, but certainly not my last. (Posted on 7/24/2019)
Great stuff for Taurus G2C Review by Globemstr3

Ive been carrying a Bodyguard 380 as my EDC. Carried in a Sticky Holster. Works fine no complaints with Sticky. Didn't feel comfortable with a 6+1 n 380. Got a GREAT deal on a 12+1 Taurus G2C. Almost got the 365 but Im very frugal. OK cheap.
I really use a pocket carry. IWB/OWB is great just not for me.
I bought a holster for the G2C. IWB nice manufacturer I just don't like IWB. Without getting into the holster hunting mouse cage I bought the Shapeshift Pocket for G2C. Total game changer. Unboxed it read nothing, thru the firearm in it and stuck in my Wrangler Cargo short front pocket. No tensioning no nothing.
They say Thumb it to release the firearm. Cant do that with a half thumb due to injury. I used trigger finger press on the shell. WOW! This Shapeshift is OUTSTANDING.
I sorta feel like Doc Holiday at the draw and have had it 20 minutes!
Will be buying expansion products in the future. And I finally found a Holster company I can stick with without breaking the bank. Thank You Alien Gear!

I have carried a handgun for over 20 years, on several different platforms, and I am here to tell you this company beats them all. If you are unsure of which way you are wanting to carry this is the holster company for you. I have probably owned over 50 different holsters and I think I may have found my last company I will ever use.

The design of the holster makes it easy to draw and leave the holster in your pocket. The design also masks the shape of the gun pretty well. The ease of changing from pocket to ankle with the modular shape shift product is very convenient. The product also arrived ahead of schedule. (Posted on 2/5/2019)
Hot pocket Review by Clifford

I am a retired peace officer, I always carry (even at home, because 100% of all home invasions take place at home). I normally carry my Glock 30SL or Glock 19 as a primary weapon, but I have used the pocket holster from Alien Gear fitted for my Ruger LCP II, as my backup. I have carried it in both my left front pants pocket or in my jacket pocket.

I received it within several days of ordering it. The construction is very good quality. If is easy to place into the pocket. The snag hook design properly snags the rim of the pocket for release (tension can be adjusted as in all shape shift models), additionally, there is a molded ridge that allows you to push forward with your thumb to release the weapon. The only picky thing that I can find is that I wish the aforementioned thumb release was even 1/4-inch longer, as I have a small hand. I would recommend this holster to anyone, including anyone that carries a small weapon in a purse of pack, as the weapon is easily deploy-able while fully protecting anything from entering the trigger guard of your weapon by items in your pocket, purse or pack.

I plan on eventually replacing my holsters with Alien Gear ShapeShift holsters.

Perfect for me Review by recon29

Works as stated. I love this. I wear cargo shorts and pants for work. I also live in S.E Florida so I wear shorts most of the time. I practiced with this holster during dry fire weekly training. Works perfectly. I wouldn't use this setup if I am in dress pants because of the pockets being smaller and tighter. As stated in the instructions: do not reholster with the holster in your pocket. I wouldn't use if you like tight pants and skinny jeans. (Posted on 10/26/2018)
