Springfield XD 4 inch barrel ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
Note: Does not fit .45 acp variant of this firearm.
You can definitely find a Springfield XD IWB holster. It's not that hard. The problem, of course, if finding one that's comfortable. Leather doesn't always feel the best against the skin and let's be honest about something: most holsters for this pistol take up a LOT of real estate inside the waistband.

After all, it's a full-size pistol! Of course an XD inside the waistband holster is going to be a bit bigger. It would be quite a design feat for an IWB holster for this make and model pistol to be reduced in size while still carrying comfortably and securely.

We have just such an XD waistband holster for you. The ShapeShift 4.0 IWB has been designed from the ground up for exactly these attributes.

Here's how:

The new ShapeShift shell system anchors securely to just one point on the holster, instead of four, and without sacrificing retention. Granted, the carrier's belt is also important in retention, but the point is this holster doesn't need as many anchoring points.

Why is that important?

Because it's allowed us to reduce the overall footprint of the holster backer by more than 25 percent compared to our other XD concealed carry holster designs. The result is a full-size pistol holster that carries like one for a compact.

However, unlike XD IWB holsters of lesser quality, comfort and retention aren't things you'll have to compromise on.

For comfort, the backer is an improved multi-layer design similar to our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster. However, the neoprene is our new Cool Vent neoprene, a perforated neoprene backlayer that wicks sweat and breathes against the skin. The spring steel core flexes when the holster is fastened to your waist, anchoring to your precise shape and moving with you when you do.

You also don't have to worry about retention, as the Adjustable Retention Unit of the ShapeShift 4.0 IWB holster lets you dial it to your precise desired setting.

Sound too good to be true?

We'll give you a month after purchase to wear the holster and make up your mind. If you find it isn't to your satisfaction, contact us and we'll buy it back. That's part of our Iron-Clad Guarantee, which also happens to include a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty. We will fix any issue or replace the holster.
It's time to shift to a better carry.

Best in Breed Holster Review by EDC Time
Quality

I have many different holsters of this type. Some from well known companies and others from gun show vendors as well as many full leather holsters from the better mainstream companies. Alien Gear has done their R&D and have something I think will be hard to improve upon. The holster I used prior I needed to modify for this particular firearm (SR9c) to keep it from releasing the magazine when working on the ground. Also the leather backing shows its age but is still quite functional just has a few blemishes and bends. The ease at which the 4.0 can be adjusted, included accessories, fit and finish, and functionality makes it the new king of the hill and my first choice, Very comfortable for all day wear, good materials and components, attention to detail, shoot maybe there was some alien technology responsible for the design for all I know. After wearing daily for some time now for work and leisure I have not found anything to date to complain about. If you are thinking about one I say get it for IWB carry which is my primary use for the 4.0. (Posted on 6/12/2020)
Comfortable Concealed carry Review by Chuck

The quality of this well thought product is excellent. My experience with a concealed carry full size pistol has always been an uncomfortable and unpleasant, for years and I had come to expect this. This holster has changed that experience, and made the concealed carry much more comfortable than other holsters. The surprising feel of the inner pad, which conforms to my "extra tire" waist size, as well as the hard protect-ant shell that offers a firm click push lock or a thumb release lock, has changed the way I will carry from now on.

Nice holster, but not for me... Review by Rich
Quality

So after a great deal of searching for "the most comfortable IWB holster" for my M&P .380 Shield EZ, I decided on the AG Shape Shifter 4.0. For me the $55 was a lot of money, but I figured if it was comfortable it would be worth it. I just got it the other day. I set it up for the way I like it and have worn it twice. I will be sending it back tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, it's beautifully made, and a quality holster. It is just not what I am looking for. It is slightly more comfortable than the all Kydex holder I was trying to replace it with, but it is WAY bulkier, and prints like crazy on me. To top it off, I have to have my pants open to get it on, and worse yet, I have to take my pants completely off to get it off. I am not saying it isn't a nice holster, it is, but it just isn't for me... (Posted on 4/26/2020)
Absolutely phenomenal holster, highly highly recommend Review by Benji

I've had this holster for a little over four months now, and I have loved every second of it. It's extremely comfortable, light weight, and extremely durable. One of the things I love most about this holster is that you can adjust your guns retention on it. It does a great job at keeping your weapon in tact. I got in a 70 mph motorcycle wreck and had this holster on, and my gun didn't budge a bit after all the tumbling and rolling I went through. This is a very high quality holster, very comfortable (I don't even notice my Glock 19 most of the time, and have literally slept with it on wearing this holster), and worth every dollar. My only complaint is that alien gear doesn't make this holster in a TLR-7 cut out option. (Posted on 4/25/2020)

Shape shift holster Review by John

Got my first shape shift holster for the P365 and I love it. I ordered the shape shift ankle holster as well for the P365 and a shape shift shell for my P938. They are quick and easy to swap. The holsters are comfortable and don't show under your clothes. You forget your're even wearing it after a while. I wear mine all day every day and it's never a problem. There is no other holster I'd ever buy again and I tried a few different brands before Alien Gear. (Posted on 3/22/2020)

Not happy Review by J.R.

I thought it was going to be awesome after all the reviews I read. But I guess I'll start at the top and work my way down. First, doesn't conceal well. No matter how I adjust hangers or the bolts to make cant more angled, it's obviously there. Its the weapon holding part that is very bulky. I watched the video but didnt let it sink in that the skinny guy had very loose shirt, and the overweight guy......well ......his big belly and waist will conceal anything. So no matter what I wear, its noticeable. And it even pushes my pants so far away from my skin that I look like my ass is deformed. Okay second, there's not enough material to keep the handle of my pistol from rubbing my side raw. It took 10 mins and then it got to hurting bad. Okay, third and last, it also isnt comfortable when I'm sitting in my vehicle. And anyone who has one of these know you aren't going to just easily adjust and move the holster around to where it isn't pushing into my back and side. Sooooooooo, it doesnt conceal well unless I'm wearing a parachute as a shirt( but even then you know its there), it doesnt protect your body from rub/hotspots from the actual weapon, and it isn't comfortable unless I'm standing up. This sucks! I thought this holster was going to be my baby of all my holsters, but I was wrong. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Ive adjusted all I can.
Alright, my reciew is even though it looks good, it doesnt do what it claims to do better than anyone else. I really tried to like this thing. (Posted on 1/22/2020)

Bought this holster for my shield. Absolutely love it, It has been a great holster thus far. It holds up to its name of shape shift and molds to you wherever you may be carrying it. It doesn't move around like some Kydex holsters do. The adjustable angles and retention are also very nice and make it more comfortable.
