One of the more pleasant benefits of carrying the M&P Shield 40 is that OWB concealment is not only easy, but totally feasible for most people - but you have to find the right M&P Shield 40 OWB holster to do it with. There are plenty out there, but not too many are good for concealing. They ride too low or too loose, or aren't comfortable enough.

Plenty of OWB holsters out there also don't offer good retention without an active retention device, which not everyone wants to carry with.

In short, it's hard to find a good holster to carry concealed with when outside the waistband…

Or is it?

Alien Gear's ShapeShift Shield 40 OWB belt slide holster is designed to CCW OWB like no other holster on the market. This holster rides high and tight to the body, keeping close and moving with you instead of flapping with every step. The belt slide clips are located ahead of the trigger guard, keeping the pistol tucked into the wearer rather than hanging off.

The holster rides comfortably, with a neoprene-backed holster base, but won't ever wear out as the ballistic nylon and spring steel core ensure a long service life.

Fit will never be an issue. Unlike other OWB designs that rely on a generic fit, the ShapeShift shell is molded exactly for the M&P Shield 40 and only for the M&P Shield 40. You get the custom holster fit, but without the custom holster expense and lead time.

Worry no more about generic fits or when the leather will go limp; the ShapeShift comes with our Adjustable Retention Unity, which can be dialed in to the precise retention setting you prefer.

The ShapeShift S&W M&P Shield 40 belt slide OWB holster is set to be a new standard in OWB concealment. You will feel the difference.

However, you can also rest easy knowing that you return the holster for a full refund in the first 30 days of ownership if unsatisfied, as our "Test Drive" trial period lets you do that. We also offer you a fully comprehensive warranty for the lifetime of the holster, as any issue that should arise with it will be fixed by us or you'll get a brand new one as long as you own it.
