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.

Great pocket CCW holster, well worth the money Review by Dano
Quality

Despite other peoples review about it being big and bulky, I carry a Glock 42 or a Glock 17 and while the G17 I can only carry with certain pants, the G42 fits perfectly. It prints only as something that looks like a large wallet or phone with pants or shorts. Additionally, its so comfortable that sometimes I even forget I have my G42 on me. (Posted on 1/5/2021)
Doesn't work for me. Review by Phylum

Simply does not work for me. Every time I draw the whole holster comes out. I've tried different shorts, pants, and jeans. I simply cannot use this holster in a defense situation. Now it just sits in a drawer. (Posted on 11/29/2020)
Awesome. Covers trigger, custom lock in fit, holster stays in pocket when you draw Review by Ortho Southpaw

I have the alien gear shapeshifter series and I like it especially for value and versatility, though you lose some quality for each style. I would still recommend alien gear, especially this. My main concern was pulling out the gun - would it be hard to pull out and would the entire holster come out? But this is an awesome pocket holster. The clip thing on the side grabs your pocket when you pull the gun 99% of the time and the gun comes out just fine. And since it’s in your pocket, you can leave the holster a bit loose to make it a quicker draw because the tension of your pants keeps it from moving around already. It has a trigger guard and is custom fit to your gun, unlike others I have seen. It’s a bit pricey, but if you plan to pocket cary this is a hood choice. I will say if you are a smaller person and are carying an m&p shield 2.0 9mm it might stick out a bit. I am 6’ 2” 190 and it fits in my work pants without showing, but when I sit the handle starts to come out. With jeans the gun doesn’t really fit enough to conceal. This isn’t the holsters fault, it’s not bulky at all. It’s actually very light yet gun clicks into place just fine. Pricey but worth it if you will pocket carry. (Posted on 7/12/2020)
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)

This holster is amazing. Using the full shell with the little print breaking clip at the bottom. No print at all. Replaced my uncle Mike's holster. This holster does require some assembly, but it's easy enough to figure out even if you don't read the instructions. (Posted on 4/23/2020)

Very Good Holster, One concern. Review by HC145
Quality

With more baggy pants or shorts this holster is perfect. I love how comfortable it is and how easy to use it is. I had no problems drawing it from my pocket, even with tight jeans on. I have no concerns with the safety of it. However, with tighter jeans the gun prints and a CPL holder would probably know what it is. I don't think the average person would suspect though. But again, I am thinking this is not avoidable even with another design. A gun is a gun. I sent this picture to a few of my friends and they did not know what it was. (Posted on 1/18/2020)
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)
