S&W M&P40c Compact 3.5 inch barrel ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
OWB concealment will never work, you say? Clearly you've never worn our belt slide S&W M&P40C OWB holster. It's designed for easy concealed carry despite being worn outside the waistband. It also carries incredibly comfortably, unlike a lot of OWB holster that you may have tried up to this point.

Heard this before only to get disappointed? Plenty of OWB holsters out there claim to be concealable or comfortable, only to turn out to be anything but. Kydex holsters don't feel the best to wear and can be quite bulky. Leather holsters can come close, but they are prone to chafing if you don't wear an undershirt, and not all of them offer enough retention - which is why so many come with a thumb break.

What if you could carry with an M&P40C OWB that offered adjustable passive retention, rode high and tight enough to be easily concealed, but also carried comfortably?

The M&P40C OWB holster from Alien Gear will do all of the above.

How so?

Retention isn't a problem, as the ShiftShell is molded for the M&P40C and the M&P40C alone. Many find the retention of the holster itself is enough, but if you like a stronger hold the Adjustable Retention Unit can be dialed in to your precise desired setting.

Comfort isn't an issue. The back layer is ventilated neoprene, a cushioning layer that wicks away moisture and breathes. It's reinforced by a spring steel core, which gives the holster a durable, flexible spine.

The belt slide clips are located just ahead of the trigger guard, right at the gun's center of gravity. When holstered, it's pulled high and tight to the body. It rides securely, but also high enough to be easily concealed.

Many users have found concealment is possible with as little as an untucked shirt.

If it sounds too good to be true, don't worry - we give you up to 30 days after purchase to return the holster for a full refund. We think you'll be astounded.

We also back the holster with a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty. Any issue gets fixed or the holster gets replaced.

You may never want to carry with any other M&P40C OWB holster again.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron
Quality

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

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)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

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)
