Springfield XD 4 inch barrel ShapeShift Drop Leg Holster

$67.88
Note: Does not fit .45 acp variant of this firearm.
For open carry on those occasions where you'd like to, a Springfield XD 4-inch drop leg holster may be the best way to do it. A good one rides comfortably, puts the pistol in an easily accessed position, and retains your XD with perfect security.

A nice bonus would be if your XD leg holster could carry spare magazines as well.

But what to look for in a Springfield XD drop thigh holster? First, it has to be comfortable to wear. That's a deal breaker if it doesn't. Fitment of the pistol is also important, as a bad holster is a bad holster no matter where you wear it; you don't want to leave it up to a bad thumb break strap. It should also secure easily both to the thigh and - via the belt loop - to the belt itself.

Not every XD thigh holster is going to have all these qualities, however. And why settle for one that isn't good? There's no reason to, and we're going to show you why you don't.

The Alien Gear drop thigh holster for this make and model pistol gives you a comfortable, secure and convenient thigh carry, with none of the drawbacks of lesser thigh holsters.

Here's how:

The thigh rig itself is molded using our custom proprietary polymer, which - through precise design and thorough testing - is all but unbreakable under normal conditions. It won't fail, and believe us - we tried. It's also contoured to fit comfortably once secured to the thigh.

The thigh straps are elastic, fitting tightly and securely though also stretching to fit comfortably. No need to cut off your circulation. The belt loop is made from the strongest nylon web we could find, so once it's secured to your leg and your belt...it only comes off when you want it to.

As to the holster itself, you can wear either the ShapeShift OWB holster or the Cloak Mod OWB with a special adapter. Since either holster is custom-molded to the pistol itself, the fitment is perfect out of the box. Cant angle is adjustable, as is retention. In fact, ShapeShift users can add an active retention device if desired.

You'll also find two additional docking splines. These are for use with Alien Gear Cloak Mag Carriers, as the XD 9mm drop leg holster is compatible with both single and dual mag carriers. Carry up to 4 extra magazines at a time.

Don't sweat the guarantee. Ours is Iron-Clad, and this drop leg holster comes with both the 30-Day Test Drive and a lifetime warranty.

Discover a better thigh carry.

Great product,only thing I think they should address is the the straps end,not the strap strength but where u tighten towards the end half attached Bungie not What I expect but everything else is exceptional and I would recommend it but find a new strap tightener,just food for thought. But all together I love it (Posted on 7/22/2020)
Good Quality built product Review by Nathaniel B.

I previously bought the cloak & tuck 3.5 older version back in 2016 for my EDC I did not much care for the design because of the metal tabs on the back that were for the screws. I utilized the holster for about a week then went right back to my galco leather IWB.because of that very reason. I have since noticed that AGH has really stepped up there game in the product of holsters. So I decided to take the plunge again and try the new shapeshift product. Thus far I can say that these are good solid products for sure. I really like the modular design where you can switch from one carry position to another. The drop leg is just an added bonus for my arsenal of equipment. (Posted on 7/15/2020)

This is the best customer service I have ever experienced. Called because I had just received my holster a couple weeks ago and the thumb release button seemed to not be functioning right. No questions asked they sent me another one that arrived the next day! Called around 4pm and the new holster was delivered next day free of charge. This company stands behind their warranty and product (Posted on 5/20/2020)

I bought this in a large but had to send it back because it was to big. a word of advice if your thigh is a 26" in diameter if it start with that size in a medium go with that size
you'll have plenty of width. Alien Gear send me the right size after I returned it. no questions ask. I love these guys. (Posted on 4/28/2020)
Good and serviceable but some oversights Review by Mike

Using with a Glock 32.

It fits well and is easily adjustable. I ordered a medium and was easily able to adjust everything to fit my leg. Especially a fan of the double thigh straps. Leg holsters are inherently unbalanced when the gun is holstered and the brands that only have on thigh strap are often impossible to secure in such a way as to eliminate wobble. Not a problem here.

The retention is excellent, standard trigger guard latch with a thumb button on the inside. The button itself is a bit cheap feeling and has a lot of flex in it, meaning that if your thumb is off to one side slightly when you press it, it will bend to the side instead of going straight down and releasing the gun. It doesn't feel as if it's going to break and training will solve the problem. Still, it is a silly problem to have and could easily be solved by having a slightly thicker linkage or adding a small bracket around it to keep it aligned. Also, holstering requires a bit more force than some other common brands of these holsters in order to lock it in. Again, training will solve this problem for each user but it would have been easy to solve by changing the shape of the latch or adding a small teflon strip to it, or any other number of tiny changes.

My largest complaint, by far, is the belt straps. On the plus side, it is a single strap from the center of the holster that then Y's out to 2 straps. However, the way you secure it to a belt is closed loops you have to feed your belt through.....come on. Other double velcro systems are much better. So much better that I cut the loops that came with this thing off and replaced them with other velcro loops. They're exactly the same dimensions and fit right in the buckles.

Finally, I have some small concerns about quality and durability. The plastic feels cheap and the retention mechanism creaks and squeaks like cheap plastic rubbing against cheap plastic. But nothing has broken yet and it is extremely comfortable and easy to use. (Posted on 1/14/2020)

I haven’t got to use it yet but from what I gather it’s a pretty good holster. The only down side is that it took 3 weeks to get here. (Springfield XD 9mm was the Gun) (Posted on 1/10/2020)

Could not be happier Review by Michael Simi Valley

Just received my Drop Leg Holster. I have a Glock 17 with an extended ported barrel and an extended Mag release so I knew I'd need to do a little Dremel work. Easy enough to remove the thumb lock and use just the adjustable trigger housing retaining system. The straps to adjust the leg and waist / holster height are easy to setup to my individual comfort. Being able to adjust the cant angle of the pistol (holster) was a big reason why I choose a Alien Gear Holster - works exactly as I expected. This thing is extremely comfortable, well made and a great design. (Posted on 5/28/2019)

There is no more wiggle. Holster stays in one place. Firearm locks right in easy draw with thumb button. (Posted on 4/8/2019)
