S&W M&P40 Drop Leg Holster


For a better open carry, you're going to need a better S&W M&P40 drop leg holster. Uncomfortable models tend not to get used very often, if at all. Models with poor retention are likewise consigned to the holster drawer or the trash bin.

In short, if you try out an M&P40 drop thigh holster that you can't use very well and aren't confident with, you aren't going to carry with it.

That's a pity, too. Thigh carry makes open carrying so easy, as you have your pistol in a position that makes carry so much more comfortable, and puts your pistol in a very easily accessed location. But you need an M&P40 thigh holster that can carry well to be able to do it.

And we have a S&W M&P40 leg holster that will.

Alien Gear's M&P40 tactical leg holster starts with a thigh platform molded from durable polymer and contoured to fit comfortably. The leg straps are elastic, so they can be tightened for a secure hold without strangling your leg, with a heavy nylon web belt loop that will keep the platform secured.

The holster is our ShapeShift M&P40 OWB holster, which docks securely to the thigh platform. It can be adjusted for cant, should you desire a positive or negative tilt. Fitment will therefore never be an issue, as the fit is custom. Retention is not only adequate, but customizable - dial in the passive retention to the exact desired setting or add an active retention device for greater security.

You can also dock up to four magazines with our M&P40 drop thigh holster with the additional docking splines.

Along with these features, our thigh holster comes with our Iron Clad Guarantee, including the 30 Day Test Drive and Forever Warranty. Our product guarantee is one of the most comprehensive in the industry as we stand by our products.

You may never want to open carry with anything else.

This is the best customer service I have ever experienced. Called because I had just received my holster a couple weeks ago and the thumb release button seemed to not be functioning right. No questions asked they sent me another one that arrived the next day! Called around 4pm and the new holster was delivered next day free of charge. This company stands behind their warranty and product (Posted on 5/20/2020)

I bought this in a large but had to send it back because it was to big. a word of advice if your thigh is a 26" in diameter if it start with that size in a medium go with that size
you'll have plenty of width. Alien Gear send me the right size after I returned it. no questions ask. I love these guys. (Posted on 4/28/2020)
Good and serviceable but some oversights Review by Mike

Using with a Glock 32.

It fits well and is easily adjustable. I ordered a medium and was easily able to adjust everything to fit my leg. Especially a fan of the double thigh straps. Leg holsters are inherently unbalanced when the gun is holstered and the brands that only have on thigh strap are often impossible to secure in such a way as to eliminate wobble. Not a problem here.

The retention is excellent, standard trigger guard latch with a thumb button on the inside. The button itself is a bit cheap feeling and has a lot of flex in it, meaning that if your thumb is off to one side slightly when you press it, it will bend to the side instead of going straight down and releasing the gun. It doesn't feel as if it's going to break and training will solve the problem. Still, it is a silly problem to have and could easily be solved by having a slightly thicker linkage or adding a small bracket around it to keep it aligned. Also, holstering requires a bit more force than some other common brands of these holsters in order to lock it in. Again, training will solve this problem for each user but it would have been easy to solve by changing the shape of the latch or adding a small teflon strip to it, or any other number of tiny changes.

My largest complaint, by far, is the belt straps. On the plus side, it is a single strap from the center of the holster that then Y's out to 2 straps. However, the way you secure it to a belt is closed loops you have to feed your belt through.....come on. Other double velcro systems are much better. So much better that I cut the loops that came with this thing off and replaced them with other velcro loops. They're exactly the same dimensions and fit right in the buckles.

Finally, I have some small concerns about quality and durability. The plastic feels cheap and the retention mechanism creaks and squeaks like cheap plastic rubbing against cheap plastic. But nothing has broken yet and it is extremely comfortable and easy to use. (Posted on 1/14/2020)

I haven’t got to use it yet but from what I gather it’s a pretty good holster. The only down side is that it took 3 weeks to get here. (Springfield XD 9mm was the Gun) (Posted on 1/10/2020)

Could not be happier Review by Michael Simi Valley

Just received my Drop Leg Holster. I have a Glock 17 with an extended ported barrel and an extended Mag release so I knew I'd need to do a little Dremel work. Easy enough to remove the thumb lock and use just the adjustable trigger housing retaining system. The straps to adjust the leg and waist / holster height are easy to setup to my individual comfort. Being able to adjust the cant angle of the pistol (holster) was a big reason why I choose a Alien Gear Holster - works exactly as I expected. This thing is extremely comfortable, well made and a great design. (Posted on 5/28/2019)
