S&W M&P Shield 40 caliber ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
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.

Ready for the next step in holster evolution? Take a ShapeShift for a trial run...
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron
Quality

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

Super comfy fits close to the body! Review by Glock 19 tony

Really well made holster, super comfy, almost forget its there. Friction hold is adjustable from really easy to get out, to strangle hold, death grip, nearly impossible to get out.

The only thing i would change on this; would be to attach some sort of push button trigger guard, so your weapon wont be able to be grabbed from behind, or fall out. (Posted on 3/4/2019)

Some improvement needed Review by Tim W

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
