S&W M&P Shield 9mm ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster

$51.88

S&W Shield AIWB Holster


The typical limitations of an S&W Shield appendix IWB holster can be overcome. This is exactly what the ShapeShift is designed to do.

Where does the typical Shield appendix holster fall short? First is in comfort. Kydex pancake holsters aren't the most comfortable to carry, and leather holsters get a bit hot in warm weather. The ShapeShift, however, uses a comfortable backer made from our Cool Vent perforated neoprene, a spring steel and woven nylon core, and our textured surface.

It sits in the waistband comfortably, breathing and wicking away moisture, while flexing to fit your shape and moving with you.

Some Shield 9 AWIB holster models are just minimalist generic holsters that sort of fit all guns. The ShapeShift is molded precisely for the Shield 9mm. The trigger guard is fully wrapped, offering a greater degree of security and a better fit than any other holster can.

Passive retention with the Shield 9 appendix carry holster is completely customizable with the included Adjustable Retention Unit. You can also adjust the cant at the shell attachment, giving you the option to adjust the angle your grip sits at.

You can also choose between a small or large appendix carry belt clip with your Smith and Wesson M&P Shield 9 IWB appendix holster.

You aren't likely to find an appendix carry holster that conceals as easily or carries as comfortably anywhere else in the galaxy.

Not convinced? We'll give a month to make up your mind. The ShapeShift comes with a 30-day trial period after purchase, so you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied for the first month of ownership.

You probably won't want to take it off.

We also guarantee the holster fully for life, against any damage or defect. Granted, damage isn't likely - the new proprietary polymer of the ShapeShift is practically unbreakable under normal conditions...and we tried. You can rest easy knowing that should anything happen to your holster, we will fix it or send you a brand new one.

It's time to Shift into a better carry.

The benchmark for A/IWB holsters Review by CAJ

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)

Best AIWB I've Found Review by Scott

I have a drawer full of holsters that are just uncomfortable.. I prefer to appendix carry and I couldn't find one that fit my body type, and was all day comfortable. I looked at the Shapeshift AIWB when it first came out and I thought it looked too bulky.

I finally pulled the trigger after the last Kydex I bought, kept digging into my leg when I was seated. I'm sorry, I waited. All day comfort, standing or sitting. It's not too bulky and it fits my S&W Shield like a glove. I could not be more pleased and if you prefer to appendix carry, you have to try one. (Posted on 8/24/2018)
