S&W M&P9 AIWB Holster


There are far more S&W M&P9 appendix carry holster models out there than there are appendix carry holsters you'd actually want to carry with. Hard plastic pancake holsters aren't very comfortable, and plenty of other holsters for this model don't retain it too well. There are also a number of appendix rigs that are clearly too large to be worn in the front of the waistband.

Just because a thing is made doesn't mean it's made well.

And this is why people end up with a holster drawer. Maybe you have an M&P9 appendix holster or two in there already.

We may have the last one you'll buy.

The ShapeShift M&P9 AIWB holster was designed from the ground up to excel where other holsters of this type fall short. Sharp plastic digging into you whenever you move...at all...won't happen any more. You can set the retention and the draw exactly how you want. The easy concealment of appendix carry unhampered by the uncomfortable nature of most appendix holsters.

Here's how:

We started with a compact backer, made with layers of complementary materials. The backing itself is perforated neoprene, which cushions the wearer but also wicks away moisture and breathes as you wear it. The core is a sheet of spring steel. When you put the holster on, it flexes to fit your shape, wearing more comfortably than almost any other M&P appendix IWB holster.

The holster shell also fully wraps the trigger guard, offering better protection and a better fit. You also get the benefit of adjustable passive retention, as the included Adjustable Retention Unit can be dialed in to your precise desired setting.

You also get your choice of large or small belt clip.

Sound to good to be true? Tell you what:

We'll give you the first 30 days of ownership to make up your mind. You can return the ShapeShift M&P9 appendix carry holster for a full refund during that time if you aren't satisfied.

The holster is also fully covered by our warranty for the lifetime of the holster. Any issue you experience will be fixed or we will send you a brand new holster.

It's time your carry evolved.

Love the shapeshift system Review by Michael

Just received my shapeshift appendix holster today.
I ordered the system years ago for my Glock 19 and have purchased shells for others guns. I hear some thoughts of it being bulky and I can see that point but for myself its perfect. I can conceal easily all my guns even in the summer. The convenience along with the comfort is perfect for my body type. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 9/9/2019)
RIDES TOO HIGH Review by 22Nout
Quality

I bought this because my current IWB holster has a metal belt clip that would keep eating my shirts. Saw the plastic belt clip and said, "this would work" I'll start by saying that this holster is of high quality. The way AG engineered this holster is next to perfection. My only complaint is that for my G26 it rides too high causing it not to be so concealed as I would want it to be. When I would sit, it would stick out so much that even my kids notice it when they never did before with my other generic IWB holster - but as mentioned, that generic one had a metal belt clip. I know this holster is advertised as an appendix holster but I moved the holster to the 3 o'clock position and it sits better there. However, now it's even more noticeable thus, not very concealable unless I'm wearing a shirt twice my size. I did 22 years as a cop and mostly as an undercover, I'm well versed in concealing a gun. If you're looking for conceal-ability, this is not the holster for you. Though, I will add, that my gun feels more secure in this holster then in my other generic IWB holster. (Posted on 8/15/2019)
Second attempt, better so far Review by Joshua
Quality

This is my second purchase from AGH and so far I am more satisfied then before. I bought this for my S&W M&P M2.0 because my other holsters just didn't quite cut it and I wanted to try a hybrid holster. I had some reservations from my last time buying a core pack for my Glock 19 but I think I have grown more as a gun owner and have more experience with the different ways to carry. I know it says this holster isn't for the M2.0 but it does fit and holds retention well and is rather comfortable with the soft backing on it, it is just a little snug when using the full shell but I think it will adjust over time. This holster doesn't work too well as an appendix holster but I think that is more because of the size of the gun then the holster itself. I am enjoying it and have worn it outside several times and I will definitively add more shells for my other carry guns. (Posted on 8/9/2019)
The benchmark for A/IWB holsters Review by CAJ

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

Great long lasting product!!! Review by James83

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate
Quality

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns
Quality

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)
