ShapeShift S&W M&P40 Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


One way to conceal a larger pistol like the S&W M&P40 is to carry with a Smith and Wesson M&P40 shoulder holster. Some people aren't able to conceal a service pistol on or about the belt, which makes a shoulder holster a viable alternative.


The pity is that there aren't many designs of shoulder holster for M&P40 pistols that let a person carry comfortably, or anywhere near as well as most belt holsters do. Uncomfortable straps, that don't sit well on the person carrying. Holster designs that put the gun in the armpit or so far off the body that concealment is difficult without wearing a parka year round. Horizontal orientations that produce a tell-tale goiter in your garments and flag anyone standing behind you.


Alien Gear has a better breed of M&P40 shoulder holster.


Our shoulder holster uses a clover harness, which lets the straps independently adjust to sit correctly on your shoulders. The comfortable straps are padded with our CoolVent perforated neoprene, making all-day carry easier. Belt hooks are added to the straps to anchor the holster on the belt and distribute the weight of the pistol better.


The straps are also adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower the holster. You can also change the grip cant, in case you prefer an S&W M&P40 vertical shoulder holster to a horizontal orientation. You can also add up to two Alien Gear Cloak Mag Carriers to the shoulder holster and carry additional rounds.


The holster itself is our ShapeShift M&P40 holster, custom-molded for this make and model of pistol for a perfect fit. Passive retention is fully adjustable and a thumb break is included with this shoulder holster for M&P40 pistols. You can, however, remove it if desired.


No other shoulder holster carries this comfortably nor gives the wearer the ability to customize it to their needs to this degree.


You also won't find too many holster companies with this same caliber of product guarantee. You get the first 30 days to wear the holster and return it for a refund if you aren't satisfied. We also warranty this holster fully for life. You get the peace of mind you need from carrying concealed, and the peace of mind you need about doing so with an Alien Gear holster.

Great Shoulder Holster but read for details Review by WG

I used a shoulder holster for the first time on a recent deployment and loved the feel, so I figured I'd get one for my personal carry weapon, a Sig P226. This holster has an amazing look and feel. I agree with a couple of the other reviews though. The instructions weren't quite clear in certain areas and you should have the same cover for the magazine holders as you do for the pistol so it doesn't scrape your arm. In addition, it took about 3 hours for me to set up, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. Being a bigger guy, I had to use a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the straps and the screws are extremely small, so make sure you keep track of them. Adjusting the straps was a little bit of a pain, but only because the leather is new and tight. Since I lowered the rig, I had to take the belt hooks off because they were too low and couldn't be adjusted anymore. I probably wouldn't have liked using them anyway. The rig came assembled but I had to take the holster apart because the Sig was too big. I had to swap the medium rubber spacers on the barrel side of the holster for the larger spacers. Still a little tight because of the thumb break, but hopefully that will change over time. The trigger side of the gun is a little loose, but if I tighten down that side (bottom) any more, the pistol won't come out easy. Adjusting the cant on the holster was easy enough but had to watch a video on how to cant the magazines. Now that I know how, it couldn't be easier. Overall a great buy and I look forward to getting some use out of it. (Posted on 9/21/2019)
Good, but needs one more thing for all day comfort. Review by Redsun.Ronin

Been using shoulder holster for months now and it's a nicely build holster.. but coming from the perspective of a bigger guy; The side that holds the extra mags needs the same flap cover as the pistol side. Without the flap, the magazine digs in, on the underside of my arm. Had to remove the extra mags and use a owb holster for them. Overall Quality: Well built. But would either like to see a add-on flap that i can purchase for the mag side.. or I'll just have to modify the damn thing myself. (Posted on 6/16/2019)
High Quality, Excellent fit, Instructions Not So Good. Review by John

The materials, workmanship, and quality of the ShapeShift shoulder holster I bought for my Glock 30 are first rate; It fits as it should, is comfortable, and is considerably more secure and stable than other rigs I've had over the years.
The instructions provided to set the system up, however, are rather poor. Illustrations are too small, the text confusing, insufficient, and hard to follow given the different ways to assemble depending upon retention choice.
If I'd change anything about the system, I'd make it possible to use both shell halves together, to more fully enclose the gun and stiffen the whole assembly. (Posted on 6/11/2019)
Overall Great Product!! Review by Artie

First off I am going to state that this is an awesome product. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a shoulder holster. I'm digging the brown leather. The neoprene areas are comfortable. Adjust-ability is simple, The stretchy areas on the straps at the shoulders and belt hooks make it comfortable to wear and does not make you feel constricted regarding everyday or exaggerated movements.

Only gripe I have is the thumb release. It does function as intended in releasing the firearm however, I feel like it can be improved on and operate more smoothly as it feels "sticky". (Posted on 4/30/2019)

Great for detective use. Very secure using the half shell and push button release. Great retention. Close to body. Soft leather that doesn't scratch easy. Only downside is takes a good hour to set up to your fit (Posted on 3/30/2019)
Amazing! Review by Larry

So this might be a little long. I just got my shoulder holster today. I received it a day early. The holster is nice. The leather is real leather no fake stuff. Fit amazing after adjusting it. I switched out the snap with the thumb release. Has that reassuring click that make you know the gun is secure. Now for the bad the only bad I have is not even about the holster it self it is with the instructions. The instructions have you putting everything together but the holster come put together so it takes some figuring to attach the thumb release and moving the cant to where you want. I thing the instructions need to be revamped to a lot more user friendly. Now a big bonus is they send you everything you need so you can use the same holster no matter what format you want. Bad side it does make things a little more confusing when making adjustments. All in all amazing product for a great price I will be telling all my LE friends about this amazing holster (Posted on 2/19/2019)
Sig Sauer 1911 CARRY DOES fit the shapeshift holsters!!! Review by Boskii

i have been watching this particular holster for bout a year waiting for reviews to see what others had experienced. after a few reviews i decided to order mine shapeshift shoulder holster for self defense and conceal carry purposes. i own a Sig Sauer 1911 in a carry model (not full size). On the sight a sales person said they do not have a form fitted holster for Sig Sauers but the 5" full size 1911 case should work.... i decided to take a chance and trust my instincts and the rep. i received my holster in the mail and on the bag it said it would NOT fit my gun....i was disappointed but i did not give up. I decided to adjust the holster and put my Sig Sauer carry 1911 in and it fit perfect!!!! no button clip needed it fits tight and snug. i jumped, ran around and it stayed!!! i cut the back of the full length holster down to 4" to help better conceal my firearm and it still fit perfectly, It didn't affect my gun fitment at all. Alien gear has my definite approval. Hopefully they surprised themselves after reading this review!!! I would love to sponsor them any day and stand by their product for years to come.
Thank you Alien Gear! (Posted on 2/9/2019)

I had plenty of holsters from most all the well known holsters company's durning my decades of LE.
Alien Gear is without doubt the best. Never had an issue, instruction are well written, the concealment is great and absolutely comfortable.
I have the 3.0 IWB, after wearing that for a year being that NO company had a decent shoulder holster for my S&W MP .45 Shield 3.3" bbl.
I pester the Alien Gear Customer Service in regards to when would they make a Shoulder Holster for my S&W MP .45 Shield.
WA LA!!!! little over a year later Alien Gear made the Shape Shift Modular Holster System Shoulder Holster, I have been wearing this holster daily for over 4 months now. OUTSTANDING!!!!
Fellow LE Brothers & Sisters No joke, their products are Good.
Good Luck all. Be safe! (Posted on 1/31/2019)
Decent product Review by Hotrod

Having purchases the shoulder holster after reading the product information I was somewhat underwhelmed by it. As a motorcycle rider I would prefer using the passive release. I am a left handed shooter and I find the release, obviously set up for a right hand draw, very awkward/difficult to use. The rig also has a strap link to allow you to remove the mag holder allowing a lighter low profile. The link would greatly benefit with the addition of an elastic strap and belt hook like the mag carrier. As it is now with my body shape the holster slides slightly off balance and is not as comfortable. I am still within my 30 day test drive and have not decided if I will keep the rig or look for an alternative. I will say the quality of the leather and construction is very good.

I love this system, I was using an urban carry rig that was more expensive and not as good. All that being said. I have 1 single issue with this. My issue is that I have a Hogue Laser grip on my 1911 that I can't use anymore because it will not fit into the holster and I don't want to void the warranty on the shell by cutting out a small piece so it can fit securely into the holster.
