ShapeShift S&W SD40VE Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


There's no point to getting a SD40VE shoulder holster unless you're actually going to use it. A lot of shoulder holsters are lacking in certain details. That means a holster that doesn't work well and takes up space in a drawer or gets tossed in the trash.


It would be better if you had a quality shoulder holster for S&W SD40VE carry instead. One that let you make adjustments for better carry. One that carries comfortably. One that makes you confident in carrying, with good fitment and retention.


And that's exactly the kind of shoulder holster you can get from Alien Gear Holsters.


Comfort is one of our highest design priorities. A holster that isn't comfortable is one you won't carry. You'll notice the straps of your SD40VE shoulder holster articulate and find a natural resting position with the clover harness. You'll also notice the shoulder straps are padded with neoprene for greater comfort, as is the holster base and magazine carrier base.


The straps also feature belt hooks, which anchor the holster to the belt. This distributes weight a little more than most shoulder holsters, making carry more comfortable. The hooks also pull the holster closer to the body, aiding concealment.


You won't find a shoulder holster for S&W SD40VE pistols that's nearly as adjustable. The plush leather straps adjust to find the perfect length. You can also adjust the holster for ride height, keeping it high and tight or pulling the gun lower to the belt.


Grip cant is also adjustable, as you can wear this SD40VE leather shoulder holster with the gun fully horizontal, with a positive or negative cant, or fully vertical. You also get docking tabs for up to two Alien Gear mag carriers, should you wish to carry spare ammunition. Retention is also customizable, as the ShapeShift shell allows for complete adjustability of passive retention. We also include a removable thumb break strap in case you wish to carry with one.


Still not convinced? We'll give you a month to return the holster for a full refund if you aren't satisfied, a 30 Day Test Drive. That's part of our Iron-Clad Guarantee on our holsters. You also get a lifetime warranty on the holster itself.


Get your Test Drive started and see just how good shoulder carry can be.

In today's economy I LOVE to buy American made products whenever possible. Alien Gear has once again provided me with wonderful products. I can't wait to get this home to try it out. I've been a customer for some time and will continue to be. Thank you, Evie, for all the help you gave me! (Posted on 7/4/2020)
Worth The Wait Review by DANIEL

I ordered my holster just as this whole COVID-19 thing started and waited well over a month for it to come in. I do have to say though that it was worth it. The craftsmanship is outstanding and the comfort is top-notch. The only con I have is that holster insert will not accommodate a light on the front of my pistol. It would be a nice future add on for the product. I for one would purchase it and I believe I am not alone. Other than this small con I have nothing bad to say about the product. A well-made holster that fits my pistol nicely and has multiple adjustment/personalization options. (Posted on 6/16/2020)
Great Product With Room For Improvement Review by Josh
Quality

First, I would like to state that this is a great product. The quality of the workmanship put into this handmade leather holster is superb. However, there are some design flaws that I would like to point out. Also note that I purchased two of these holsters, one for myself and one for my father. Over the last 60 days our experiences have been the same. The first issue we had is the design of the magazine portion of the shoulder rig. The mag pouches are plastic and adjustable, and though they do have rounded edges they poke you on soft inside of the arm. I attempted to muscle through this discomfort for 30 days but just could not get past it. Therefore, I removed the mag carrier and switched to the included link, my father told me not long after that he did the same. This brings in a second issue, as now the whole rig wants to pull towards the firearm side due to the weight. The link only allows you to loop two mag side shoulder straps. It does not allow you the option to reuse the included belt strap found on the mag paddle. If this function did exist, I would not only be able to keep both sides of my pants up but also even out the distribution of the entire rig. My Father and I would honestly be willing to pay a little more for the leather flap that is provided on the firearm side to be included, as it resolves the exact issue that would exist for the firearm. On a side note, the customer service line has the nicest ladies I have ever dealt with. At the time of my order they were having tech issues and the conformation emails were not going out. I reached out customer service by phone and the lovely lady that answered provided me with my information. She also explained to me that the leather portions are all hand made to order and that it would take longer than I expected to receive these. Since one was purchased as a gift and time was a factor to me, she assisted me in canceling my original order and reordering with expedited shipping. She also proceeded to call me back several days later to ensure that I received all my conformation emails once the Alien Gear email servers were back online. This level of service has made me and my father customers for life. Thank you all for what you do. (Posted on 5/30/2020)

Love this shoulder holster! Only wish there were more options for weapons with lights on rail , have modified mine by removing attached holster from leather , then reattaching correct holster to hold weapon with light attached, leather quality is amazing, only issue was not wanting to remove my light.

Small pictures and vague directions. Review by Darren Eggers

Great holster. Comfortable, easy on easy off. Only thing is it has a inside abs half of the gun holster that cannot be mounted with the thumb release button, which I want. No direction as to how to get the other parts or how to mount. The leather thumb release is awkward for me to use. (Posted on 3/30/2020)
WAY Too Bulky! Review by EDCD
Quality

I have several quality Alien products, which work very well and I use for EDC. When I was looking for a shoulder holster, I naturally went with the ShapeShift Shoulder Holster. Unfortunately, this product is a complete miss for Alien Gear, so much so that I believe they should scrap this design entirely and "go back to formula." First and foremost, for something you want concealed, this is the bulkiest shoulder holster on the market. From the extra thick should straps, to the beefy adjustment buckles to the extra thick padding on the holster itself, this will print unless you're wearing a huge parka on a expedition to Antartica. Seriously, it's that big. In addition, due to the bulk, you'll ALWAYS know you're wearing the ShapeShift Shoulder Holster. I returned this and purchased another brand with thin shoulder straps, a sturdy, yet low-profile holster, and snug dual-mag pouch. I can wear a thin jacket or hoodie and you'll never know I'm wearing it. Alien Gear's customer service was accommodating with my return. I'm sure Alien Gear won't print this review, but if they do, you've been warned. (Posted on 3/16/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hey EDCD, we are sorry to hear that you're not satisfied with the shoulder holster as it is to "bulky". We pride ourselves in making extremely comfortable products as when something isn't comfortable, you most likely won't wear it. When wearing the shoulder holster, these straps do an excellent job distributing the weight of the holster all day long helping alleviate any stress points that grow over time. We also do not recommend wearing any shoulder holster with a hoodie as you cannot easily access your firearm but with proper adjustment and allowing the leather to break-in, this shoulder holster shouldn't feel "bulky". Please reach out to us and we will be happy to help and make things right.

it took me a while to get it adjusted to me but it wears nice once you do, i didn't know until i received it that it has a life time warranty. that was just icing on my cake!!if i had a complaint which it is a small one in my book, the shape shiftier housing was supposed to fit my 4.5 inch barrel but its about 1/2 inch short. ill just cut off the end of the plastic housing of the shape shiftier to let the rest of the gun frame slide in place, as it is i can use the leather stop to hold the gun in place but not the trigger guard lock.not unless alien gear want to send me the right housing to hold my 4.5 barrel.......
