S&W M&P Shield 40 caliber ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster
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.
