S&W M&P40 4.25 inch barrel ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
OWB carry is definitely more comfortable, but the issue is finding a S&W M&P40 OWB holster you can actually conceal practically. There are plenty out there, but not everyone wants to wear a parka everyday in order to conceal and carry.

What normally keeps one from being able to use a M&P40 OWB in this way? Largely because of how they wear. Either it hangs too low to conceal with anything less than a full length coat or it sticks out so far from where it's secured that there's no way anyone's getting fooled.

Alien Gear has one designed exactly for OWB concealment.

The ShapeShift belt slide M&P40 OWB holster rides close to the body, flexing to fit your shape with a durable, flexible backer that carries comfortably. It also rides high enough for minimal covering to effectively conceal even a full-size pistol like the M&P40.

Here's how:

The backer is made with multiple layers of durable fabrics, with a core of woven ballistic nylon and spring steel. It flexes and curves to fit you, but anchors firmly to you. Besides wearing securely, it also moves with you instead of awkwardly flapping when you take a tiny step in any direction.

The belt attachments are just ahead of the trigger guard. As a result, the bottom of the holster doesn't droop past the pocket, which is the case with most other OWB holsters and especially those for full-size pistols.

The result? An M&P40 OWB holster that rides high and tight, perfect for daily carry and easy concealment for those who prefer to wear their holster in this fashion.

That's a lot to promise, but what if it doesn't really work out?

That's why we give you 30 days to return the holster for a full refund if you don't like the holster. We will buy it back during the first month you own it if you aren't satisfied, because we want you to carry with a holster you'll want to carry with.

We also fully warranty the holster for life. As long as you have it, any issue will get fixed or you get a brand new holster.

A better carry is out there. Why not make a shift into a better holster?
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

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)

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)
very good concealment Review by JJ

i have 2 Alien IWBs and I recently bought the OWB slide for concealed carry during winter months wearing layers of clothing and heavy gloves. The IWB holsters are good but just too difficult for me to use in heavy winter clothing. The OWB Slide works quite well. Easy concealment under a jacket even with a full size handgun and much easier to deploy in heavy clothing and gloves. Works very well for me. (Posted on 12/4/2018)
feels great Review by Dean

It feels great on your body with the soft padding and that is where it ends. The holster has adjusting screws that do nothing except for change the angle of the pad and not the angle of your gun. The holster belt loops are connected to the holster making it so you can not tilt the holster forward. This holster makes your gun stick out more so forget it being concealed under your shirt.

One thing Review by Jay1975

I really like this holster, but I just wish there was another belt loop option that would allow for a forward cant option for larger framed guns. As it is, this will be my winter holster, but I still will choose the Alien gear Shapeshift over any of my other holsters I have sitting in the closet now. (Posted on 8/14/2018)
