S&W M&P40c Drop Leg Holster


Open carry will never be as comfortable or convenient as with an S&W M&P40c drop leg holster. The pistol rides in a convenient location should access be required, moves with you better than on the waistband in some cases, and with the right holster, is incredibly comfortable.

Once you try an M&P40C leg holster, you may never want to open carry any other way.

But you'll need a good M&P40C tactical leg holster. One that rides comfortably and retains the pistol well. Otherwise, it will just get tossed because there's no point having a holster you don't want to use.

That's exactly what we had in mind when we created our S&W M&P40C dorp thigh holster: a comfortable, secure carry that is perfectly suited to those times when you wear your pistol without trying to conceal it.

The thigh rig couples with our ShapeShift M&P40C OWB holster, docking securely with the holster and allowing the user to adjust grip cant and passive retention to their desired setting. An active retention device can be added if desired, and you'll never have to worry about fitment.

Change the ShapeShift back to a concealed carry format once finished, as the thigh rig complements the ShapeShift's versatility.

The Thigh rig itself is molded from ultra-durable polymer, and contoured to carry easily. The thigh straps are elastic, stretching to fit comfortably and securely. It anchors to the belt via the heavy nylon web belt loop, and once strapped up will not be going anywhere. Run some 3-gun, hit the trail, and crush the range while carrying securely and in total comfort.

There are also 2 docking splines for use with our Cloak Mag Carriers, and you can carry up to four spare magazines at a time.

Not too many M&P40C thigh holsters give you that kind of versatility or adjustability.

Besides the features, you also get Alien Gear's Iron Clad Guarantee, including the 30 Day Test Drive and Forever Warranty.

You can make a shift to a better open carry...

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)
