Sig P238 ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

Sig P238 Modular Holster Kit


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.
Instead of tracking down every Sig P238 holster you might want, what if you could all of them in one fell swoop? It sure would be nice to be able to do that; otherwise you wind up with a holster drawer with a number of unused holsters that you never wear.

For the person who views carrying as part of a lifestyle, having to find a Sig Sauer P238 concealed carry holster or two and then a few open carry holsters as well is a hassle. This is exactly what Alien Gear has set out to change.

Instead, you can get all the Sig P238 gun holster models you need at once with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System. All you need to is change the shell from one platform to the other, without the use of tools in mere moments. You get to carry how you want, when you want.

The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes the following holster configurations:

Sig P238 IWB Holster
Sig P238 Appendix Carry Holster
Sig P238 Belt Slide OWB Holster
Sig P238 Paddle Holster OWB

The IWB, appendix and belt slide OWB holsters attach the Shift Shell and trigger guard half-shell to a comfortable, durable holster base for an incredibly comfortable carry. These models fully wrap the trigger guard for the utmost in security, and are fully adjustable for retention. Set the draw exactly as you wish.

The Sig P238 inside the waistband holster is also adjustable for ride height and grip cant by adjusting the belt clips. You'll also find an assortment of belt clips included in your Core Carry Pack; select the models you want to carry with and install them at your leisure.

The Sig P238 Paddle OWB holster is an ultra-durable open carry holster that will carry through nearly environment or activity imaginable. You can also adjust grip cant, and install either the paddle attachment or a belt slide attachment if desired. Retention is fully customizable; employ passive retention, active retention or both if desired.

Along with the four holster configurations, you also get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive on the market. This includes a 30 Day Test Drive trial period, during which you can wear the ShapeShift and evaluate it to see if it passes muster. We also back the ShapeShift Sig P238 Holster Core Carry Pack with a lifetime warranty against all damage and defects.

It's time for you shift to a better carry

Good product only 1 issue Review by Tesh

I am very pleased with my rig. I carry IWB it sits nicely at the 4-5 position i really never notice it when sitting. The only issue i have had is it slips down on my underwear so I end up wearing it inside my underwear on my skin to get the grip to keep it from sliding. I wish it had an option to add some kind of grip material to the rig to help with the grip. (Posted on 10/14/2020)
dissapointed Review by jesse

i was really excited about receiving this product. unfortunately when i did i was extremely disappointed. i would say that this system seems to be fairly durable. however after using this system i encountered major issues drawing and holstering. i am using a full size p320 m17. and in the iwb configuration it is almost impossible to draw without bringing my pants with it. now i did try loosening the retention to the point the gun would fall out when tilted upside down, this did not help the problem seems to be with the grippy backing and the length of the barrel. also holstering is also an issue when you tighten the belt the trigger gaurd seems to get distorted and tends to rack the slide when trying to holster.

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Jesse, Thank you so much for your feedback and we do apologize for the drawing and holstering issues here and we do want to make things right! With our IWB holsters the option with out the thumb release is called Passive retention. This type of retention relies on the retention from the adjustable retention unit and the retention from your belt. If you wear your belt tighter we recommend to loosen the retention unit to give it a good draw. Because these are passive retention holsters, this will cause the holster to be loose when you turn it upside down. We hope this helps!

Excellent product Review by Chris

I have been using this product with my S&W M&P Shield 9 2.0 PC every day for several months now and I am very satisfied with it. Everything fits well and has stayed in good working order. Very little wear noted. I generally use the AIWB appendix in warm weather and will probably switch to the IWB or belt slide when we hit jacket weather.
I have since added a second shell for my 1911, which I generally use the OWB paddle for and have also ordered a drop-leg expansion to run with the same pistol.
Just a quick note on the 1911 shell - the belt slide half-shell option does not work on the Springfield Ronin 1911, as the safety pushes the pistol out from the holster base and this messes up the retention. It does fit perfectly in the full shell, so you gain the thumb release but you do loose the option to run that particular gun tighter to your body.
It's a little pricey, but works great and is well made, so overall a 5* from me. (Posted on 9/21/2020)

Box came with everything that was advertised. Assembly was a little tricky, but I managed to figure it out. My biggest concern was that the Glock 17 holster wouldn't fit my Glock but there gun fits fine with no retention issues. (Posted on 9/18/2020)

Would love to try the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack. But NA for Bersa and Kahr. Seems like a limited applicability base. Ratings are random just to get the review submitted. (Posted on 9/12/2020)

When I received the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack I never expected I would use all the different combinations.. My favorite is the IWB Cloak tuck, l wear this everyday possible. I like having the ability to switch it up with the appendix and the paddle holster. I have bought other ShapeShift shells so I can carry any of my guns by making a few quick changes.. This is the best holster I have ever purchased! It is very comfortable and durable, I never leave home with out it! Now I'm waiting for the ShapeShift shoulder holster to get here.
