S&W M&P Shield 40 caliber ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
Concealment is definitely easy with many an M&P Shield 40 holster, but is it as good as it could be? You've probably noticed a few details always fall a bit short. Traditional leather holsters are great until they wear in too much and get hot inside the waistband. Hybrid holsters can be quite comfortable, but can get a bit bulky or can be a bit flimsy. Other holster designs don't offer good fit or retention, kydex holsters don't wear comfortably and so on.

A lot of people out there likely wish there was a Shield 40 IWB that could carry comfortably without being bulky, fit well and offer good retention in the bargain.

There is such a holster - Alien Gear's ShapeShift IWB holster for the Shield .40 caliber. The ShapeShift has been designed from the ground up to improve in the areas where other holster designs falter.

Start with the backer. The ShapeShift IWB backer is the traditional winged backer common to other Shield 40 hybrid holsters, but the design has been streamlined with almost half the surface area and thickness reduced overall. However, the Cool Vent perforated neoprene still allows the skin to breathe and wicks sweat from the wearer.

The ballistic nylon and spring steel core ensures a secure and comfortable carry, and guarantees a long service life through the added durability. The Alien Skin textured surface helps hold your pistol but won't mar the finish or snag during the draw.

The retention shell is like none other on the market. The ShapeShift S&W M&P Shield 40 IWB holster fully wraps the trigger guard, and the shell is injection molded for only this make and model firearm. The fit and retention are superior to any other holster out of the box.

However, the ShapeShift is also adjustable for ride height, grip cant and passive retention should it be desired. The belt clips can be adjusted for carry position without the use of tools, and the included Adjustable Retention Unit can be set for the exact passive retention the owner should desire.

Along with the features of the ShapeShift M&P Shield 40 IWB holster, you also get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. That includes a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period, during which you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied during the first 30 days of ownership. The holster is also covered by a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty.

Are you ready for IWB carry to evolve?

Absolutely love this holster ! Once I figured out all the adjustments and found the one right for me , its like I dont even have it on !! I love how interchangeable the holster is and exspecially once I get another gun all I have to do is purchase a new shell and not have to get use to another holster. Would definately recommend this holster ! Thanks (Posted on 8/15/2020)

I have been using for 2yrs, 7day a week 12 to 14hrs a day. Zero complains. Looks and feels just like new. Well made. I can switch, to IWB, appendix, OWB. very quickly. I have Sprinfield XD, I got a Glock and just had to buy a shell I wanted. Great invention. Wish it was the first purchase for a holster, could have saved a lot of money. (Posted on 8/15/2020)
Not too bad After I finally got it!!!! Review by N/A

IDK why some of the extra pieces I received were either in the pkg. or affixed to my shell but after talking to customer and viewing too many other holsters, I was able to figure out the parts. I finally got it on my person and it is very comfy. Have wore it all day today 8/11/2020. I understand being busy but not hiring extra help to keep your customers happy. Really going to have to need a new holster bad before I order another one from Aliengear. The shipping was not days or weeks but months. I did buy an all leather shoulder holster from another company and got it in a week as they had a returned one like I needed. I wanted on from AG but I damn sure was not waiting 2-3 months for delivery. All I can say is order at your own risk. And the men that work for AG that does the videos, yeah they are not that easy to put on, at least the first time!!

Phenomenal holster. Easy and quick to draw from. Best I've seen/used. The holster was marked a month for delivery (which was disappointing) but presently surprised when it arrived in half the time. No complaints and would order more. (Posted on 8/1/2020)
Great holster Review by Rob Maupin

This is a great holster and very comfortable. It can be a pain getting it on though. I’m a bigger guy so I needed a holster that doesn’t bother me when I get up and down. This is that holster. But I have found the easiest way to put it on and put it on my pants first then put my pants on. It a big deal and it doesn’t move or ride up my back. It stays close to the body during a jog or activity. I would recommend this holster to anyone. (Posted on 7/29/2020)

So I like the holster itself it fits my carry gun it fits against my hip it conceals really well and it BREATHES so I'm really pleased with the quality of the product itself however it did have a cross threaded screw/nut it was a pain to get out and it probably should have been caught by quality control before it got packaged the other complaint I have us the instructions are really vaguely worded and the pictures dont help so if you want to set yours up in the other configurations and cant figure it out youtube does have videos to help better than the paper it comes with. Overall it's a good product and I think its gonna be a great EDC holster (Posted on 7/20/2020)

I like the holster. Trying it out but the retention part doesn’t seem to hold it as tight as I like. The seller sent it in an envelope and the package was crushed. Shoulda been in a box instead... (Posted on 7/20/2020)
