S&W M&P Shield 9mm ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

S&W M&P Shield ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

Today, a holster maker that doesn't offer an S&W M&P Shield holster is probably not long for this world. It is one of the most popular concealed carry pistols and for many good reasons. In many ways, it's a Goldilocks gun because it's small enough to easily conceal but large enough to be carried in other ways in case a person likes that.

After all, some people do like to carry OWB or open carry on occasion, which a pocket pistol isn't necessarily the best for.

But the typical Shield holster only allows you to choose one way to carry. If you want flexibility in how you carry, you need to buy multiple holsters...unless you didn't have to.

Alien Gear's ShapeShift Shield holster allows you exactly that flexibility.

The ShapeShift isn't a holster; it's a modular carry system that allows you to carry in any manner you see fit. It only requires shuffling a few components in a matter of seconds. If you like variety in how you carry your M&P Shield, the ShapeShift delivers exactly that.

The secret is our shell system, which was developed over a two-year period. The base ShapeShift M&P Shield holster kit includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards, along with two backing pads and multiple belt attachments. The shells fit together by means of interlocking rails and twist locks, which fasten without needing tools. Retention is also fully customizable, and you can set the passive or active retention to your desired setting in every M&P Shield holster configuration.

You select the configuration you want, whether you want an open carry or Shield concealed carry holster.

You can select one of two M&P Shield IWB holster configurations, by attaching a half-shell with trigger guard attachment to either of the two backing pads. For a traditional IWB carry, select the larger backer and attach the shells. This gives you the classic winged IWB hybrid holster format. You may even notice the backers are the same materials as our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster, with a neoprene backer and Alien Skin surface. The belt clips are, just like the 3.0, adjustable for ride height and cant.

Or you can select the smaller backer and attach the larger IWB clip, which creates a Shield appendix IWB holster. With Alien Gear's backing material, this will be one of the most comfortable appendix carry holster you're likely to experience.

However, some people like to concealed carry outside the waistband. If you prefer that kind of carry, attach the belt slide attachments to the small backer and you have a high-ride Shield OWB holster. This high-riding hybrid OWB holster rides high and tight, hugging to the body and concealing easily under an untucked shirt or light outerwear.

You can also assemble both full-length shells for a full wraparound, and insert the paddle attachment for an ultra-durable Shield paddle holster.

The ShapeShift also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period. Take the first 30 days of owning the holster to test it out and see if it's the carry system for you. Contact us before that period is up if not, and we'll buy it back.

We also warranty the holster for life. Any issue that should arise, regardless of how it happens, will either be fixed or we will send you a whole new holster - as long as you have one.

You may find yourself wondering why you carried with anything else.

Great holster combo! Review by Matthew Trey Rahn

So many options with this holster combo. My favorite is the appendix carry setup. You get lots of stuff for the money. It is comfortable to carry all day long as well. (Posted on 8/5/2020)
Excellent company and great product. But. Review by BajanSpear

The product is innovative, well manufactured, the company is popular, and it looks both stylish and functional.In the OWB configuration it is fine, and the vehicle mount is neat too. I have no complaint, but it just did not work for me in the IWB mode with a model as small as the P365. My son loved his Alien Gear kit for a full size, however, I just could not find a comfortable fit personally. Good product, would probably try again sometime for a different size carry.

the product is of good quality, one of the things I don't like the modular part is a good idea however it is bigger in size then a typical hybrid holster. I do like that you get 4 configurations in 1 package the inside the wast band are extremely comfortable especially when its in direct contact with your skin. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
Best holster I've ever used! Review by Patrick

Like most gun owners, I have several shoeboxes full of holsters that just don't work. Kydex, custom made leather, you name it. AlienGear just does it right. I'm currently carrying my Sig P365 SAS model 9mm in the paddle OWB configuration. I'm planning to carry appendix as well. I've got several other AlienGear holsters for my other carry guns. They are the best. (Posted on 7/29/2020)

Received the core carry pack and couldn't be happier. Saw complaints about the retention system and and can only say those buyers purchased for the wrong gun or need to exchange due to possible defect on the holster they received.With the retention all the way tight I can have to pull on the gun to get it out. I backed it of to about half maybe three quarters.The system is highly configurable, lightweight and from what I can see made.Time will be the ultimate test, but I am very pleased.
