S&W M&P9 4.25 inch barrel ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
Ordinarily, a person would write off OWB concealment as impossible; no way there's a S&W M&P9 OWB holster that would let a person conceal with anything less than a parka. Most OWB holsters for this gun hang too low and are far too bulky to conceal well without the benefit of outerwear, so why even bother?

But OWB carry is so comfortable! It's such a pity that there isn't an M&P9 OWB that could be used for easy concealed carry.

But there is such an M&P9 OWB holster.

That would be the ShapeShift Belt Slide S&W M&P9 OWB holster. Unlike many others for this particular make and model firearm, it rides high enough and tight enough to effectively conceal, with as little as an untucked button-up or perhaps light outerwear.

Unlike many other OWB holsters for this make and model gun, the overall footprint of the holster is small, taking up only the space it needs.

How could this be done? Simple:

Since the ShapeShift shell locks to the backing platform securely at a single point, we're able to use a smaller size of backer than many other holster designs. This reduces the footprint. The backer also flexes to fit the shape of the wearer, riding tight and comfortable.

The belt slide clips are located just forward of the trigger guard, at the pistol's center of gravity. It therefore rides securely but also high enough to be easily concealed.

Many users have found that this holster conceals easily with minimal clothing due to how high and tight it rides. Your mileage may vary, but some have been able to conceal a full-size M&P with a t-shirt. In any case, you'll find it does so far more easily than with many competing M&P9 OWB holsters.

Don't want to take our word for it?

You don't necessarily have to. During the first 30 days of owning the ShapeShift Belt Slide S&W M&P9 OWB holster, you can return it at any time for a full refund. That's part of our product guarantee, which also includes a comprehensive lifetime warranty.

You don't need just another holster. You need a better one.
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

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)
