Alien Gear didn't want to create just another M&P Shield 40 paddle holster when creating the ShapeShift holster system. You see, we know the kind of compromises that are built into many paddle holsters. You've probably felt a few yourself.

For instance, some paddle holsters don't have a great fit, because of a generic holster design. As a result, many rely on an active retention device because the holster doesn't actually retain the pistol well on its own. Others have a flimsy paddle, or one that doesn't attach securely.

The selling point for a lot of holster companies is the convenience of a paddle design. A Shield 40 paddle holster is easy-on, easy off; why make it rugged enough for daily use when that's not what a lot of people will use it for?

We don't think it has to be that way.

The ShapeShift M&P Shield 40 paddle holster is designed to excel in those areas. The holster itself is comprised of two ultra-durable polymer shells. Both are injection-molded for this specific make and model firearm and set together via our patent-applied-for locking rail and twist lock system. It fits perfectly right out of the box because it was literally made for this pistol, but without the custom holster lead time or expense.

Retention is totally customizable. You can rely on the holster itself, or install the Adjustable Retention Unit to set the exact passive retention of your choice. You can also choose to install a thumb-release active retention device...or both, for full Level II retention.

Worry no more about the paddle. The locking gate on the ShapeShift Shield 40 OWB holster locks securely in place, and the ultra-durable polymer we literally designed for the ShapeShift will not break, warp, fray or crack under normal conditions. You can also use it to set grip cant as well, fully adjustable prior to locking in place.

The holster can also be undocked from the paddle attachment and docked with the ShapeShift holster mount docking system on any compatible surface.

However, we know that you may not be convinced right away. That's why part of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee is a 30-day trial period, during which you can return the holster for a full refund during the first 30 days of ownership.

You also get a lifetime comprehensive guarantee, so any issue with the holster will be fixed or the holster will be replaced so long as you own it.

If you're ready for the next stage in holster evolution, try the ShapeShift. You may find you don't want to carry without it...
