S&W M&P Shield 40 cal AIWB Holster


You're looking for an M&P Shield 40 AIWB holster for appendix carry but don't like the typical designs. Kydex pancakes, hybrid designs with thick leather backing and so on. They don't seem like they'd be too comfortable.

Believe it or not, that's what most companies selling a Shield 40 appendix holster are kind of counting on. What typically sells, you see, is the convenience of appendix carry. You just slip the holster in the waistband, cinch up the belt and go. Since the holster is small, why bother paying attention to the details?

But you don't have to settle for that. Alien Gear is out to set a new standard for carry, with the ShapeShift S&W M&P40 Shield appendix carry holster. We have designed this holster from the ground up to excel where other AIWB designs fall flat.

First, the shell. The ShapeShift retention shell fully wraps the trigger guard, ensuring the perfect fit and great retention right out of the box. The Adjustable Retention Unit allows you to dial in the passive retention to your exact specification as well, so you aren't stuck with the holster just as it comes. Since the shell is molded for precisely this make and model of firearm, you get a custom fit - just without the custom holster lead time or expense.

The shell can also be adjusted for cant angle.

Then there's the backer, as the ShapeShift employs the hybrid holster design. Due to the shell's unique design, we've been able to streamline the backer in terms of overall size, making it far easier to install and carry.

The materials are unlike those of any other Shield 40 appendix carry holster. The Cool Vent perforated neoprene backer lets the holster breathe and wicks sweat as you carry, keeping you comfortable even during the warmer months. The ballistic nylon and spring steel core give the holster a durable spine, and the Alien Skin textured surface helps hold the pistol without marring the surface.

On top of a great holster, you also get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, which consists of a 30-day "Test Drive" money-back trial period - during this time, you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied - and a full, comprehensive lifetime warranty.

It's the next stage in evolution for concealed carry.

Too bulky Review by Bob

I bought the kit, which was fine, but was looking for an AIWB holster and this one is WAY too big. I would not recommend it. (Posted on 7/16/2020)
Horrible holster, waste of money. Review by Justin
Quality

Value
I wish I didn't waste my money on this holster. It is bulky, uncomfortable, and does not conceal even in the slightest. My P365 prints like no tomorrow even with the flush fit magazine. Buy this holster if you want everyone to know you are "concealing". Save your money and head on over to a competitor. Incredibly comfortable and even with extended magazines, you can't tell I'm carrying. Alien gear probably won't publish this review but you have been warned! (Posted on 6/29/2020)
NOT for the skinny guy... Review by John
Quality

So I purchased the Shape Shifter kit. I read multiple reviews from people saying it conceals perfectly for people of all body weights, shapes, and sizes. Not the case...Yes, I'm a skinny guy, but this thing does not conceal AT ALL. If anything, it makes it more noticeable. Looks like I'm pregnant. You've got about 2-3 inches of material that is under your waistline. Would not recommend for skinny guys. (Posted on 6/27/2020)
ALWAYS get premium shipping Review by Mickey

I've bought AG holsters before and their product is top notch. I'm happy to see good quality made stuff made here at HOME, USA. However, if you do buy this specific item or anything else from AG, just get premium shipping. I choose standard shipping and the USPS is taking two weeks to get it to me! It left AG's facility two weeks ago and was reprioritized so I basically "get it when I get it". Annoying. Always go UPS or FedEX. Other than that, I cant wait for my gear! :D I know it'll be solid and work just the way I need it to. (Posted on 5/18/2020)

Too Bulky for IWB Carry Review by Mike
Quality

I'm not a small person, but while I like the quality of the Holster, it's hard to get in and out of your waist because of all the "plastic" on this thing. I want a simple holster that holds the gun in, and lets you put it on easily. This thing is 2" thick? (Posted on 3/21/2020)

Ordered this Appendix carry holster (Lefty) did take a few weeks to get it but they are extremely well made! Worth the wait in my opinion. It took about a week to fully get used to it, Fits like a glove for my M&P Shield 40c, super fast draw and comfortable and extremely well made. Can't go wrong. Oh great customer service as I ordered the wrong holster the 1st time. Very nice customer service!! (Posted on 3/10/2020)
Perfect fit Review by Kenneth

I bought the IWB for my Sig Sauer P365, it fits like a glove and is very comfortable, love the backing material. No more hard kydek against my skin. It does seem a bit larger than my kydek but is hardly noticeable and very concealable, as with all new things you will get use to any difference. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 3/4/2020)

I Hate This Thing Review by Brandon
Quality

I hate this holster more than I can possibly explain. for the price would have expected far more options to adjust the cant and where it rides. Would not buy again and do not recommend for any one that wants to be able to adjust the cant of the gun. your only option is it sitting straight down and that's not what I was wanting.
