Springfield XD 4 inch barrel ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster

$49.88
Note: Does not fit .45 acp variant of this firearm.
If you've ever bought a Springfield XD paddle holster, then you've probably run into one of the typical problems with paddle holsters. The Achilles' Heel is usually the paddle itself. Some are too weak for anything other than very limited use, others are uncomfortable and others aren't adjustable, so you only can wear it like it came from the factory.

It might also be that the holster itself is a generic design that requires you to use an active retention device whether you want to or not.

But here's the thing:

You don't have settle for an XD paddle holster with those failings.

The ShapeShift paddle OWB holster for the Springfield XD has been designed to leave these common failings in the dust. First, the holster is comprised of two injection-molded shells, molded on the XD and only the XD. The fit is perfect, right out of the packaging. You can rely on the adjustable passive retention...but you can also install a thumb-release if active retention is desired.

The paddle attachment is contoured for a comfortable carry, so you won't have to wear multiple layers to be able to carry it. You can also swap between the paddle attachment and a belt slide attachment, if you desire.

You also won't have to worry about the paddle attachment. Our new custom polymer blend is nearly indestructible under normal conditions - and believe us, we tried! - so it's stronger than any paddle attachment out there. The holster is also adjustable for cant, so you can have a straight drop, forward cant, rearward cant for cross-draw or even full horizontal if you want to.

Still skeptical?

That's okay. That is exactly why our Iron-Clad Guarantee comes with a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period. You have the first 30 days to return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied. Wear it, carry with it, and put it to the test. We'll buy it back during that time if you aren't convinced.

We also warranty the holster for life. As long as you own it, we will fix any issue or send you a brand new one.

Shift to a better holster.

I absolutely love my Alien Gear ShapeShift OWB holster.
I have a few different holsters from Alien Gear and they are all exceptional.
I love the build, feel, looks of them.
This Holster is even better with the thumb release.
Alien Gear is the ONlY brand holsters I will use.
Highly recommended!! (Posted on 1/4/2021)
So far so good Review by Michael

Just received holster tonight. First, I was able to contact chat late in the evening since they are based in PST and I'm in eastern. Customer Service answered all my questions. So after loosening the retention, the holster was still very tight getting firearm in and out. I opened the shell up and noticed the catch that goes over the trigger guard when you press down the thumb release, was not fully depressing. I took some gun oil spray and sprayed the catch and the thumb release shaft. I put it back together and it working perfectly at this time. Hopefully that solved that issue. It came with the paddle and belt loop attachment. With the paddle on and because of the way it attaches, it does move right to left some what while walking. It's not real bad and if you are wearing body armor it will wiork fine. Otherwise use the belt attachment since that fits more flush . But with the belt attachment, you lose the quick release. So you have different opinions. (Posted on 11/10/2020)

I love the design, but it sticks out way to far for me. I like to have an owb but close to me. this has almost 2" of space between my body and the actual holster. (Posted on 8/26/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Ken! Thank you so much for reaching out and we do apologize for this. With paddle holsters they do general cause alot of spacing between the holster and your body. For any one looking for a holster that stays snug up to your body we definitely recommend any type of holster with belt loops so you can keep the holster and firearm up close to your body. We hope this helps for your future purchases!

After ordering a paddle holster I knew I wanting to get the Shape Shift Modular Holster system because it comes with everything. There team works hard at both delivering the holster and keeping tabs on when the holster should arrive I will definitely be buying more shells from these guys for my other guns thanks for the awesome holsters (Posted on 8/19/2020)
365 holster not so good Review by Shemp

The holster arrived promptly and set up the way I ordered it.

I wore the holster for about a week on duty as a Police Officer. As I was standing, the holster suddenly was upside down. The top screw came out causing the holster to be top side down. I examined the holster and found the bottom screw to be loose too.

I understand that this can happen but I sent a "chat" to the company and they never responded. I even asked for additional screws since one was now missing.

I was able to find another screw to secure the holster for now, so based on the incident and the failure of the company to reach out to me, I would not recommend the product. (Posted on 7/30/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Dan! Thank you for the review and we do apologize for screw falling out. We recommend to apply a little bit of Blue Loctite to the threads of your screws to seal them in place. With walking, running, jumping, etc the screws can come out with a thread locker keeping it in place. Please reach out to our customer service if you can any additional questions!

Amazing holster! Review by Hoss

Originally I was skeptical about ordering the ShapeShift OWB Holster for my Springfield XD 9MM. I had previously ordered a Level 3 Retention Holster and have been happy with it but after reading the reviews for the ShapeShift OWB Holster I decided to try it out. I am extremely happy that I did. By far the best holster I have ever owned and I will definitely be recommending them to all my friends and co-workers. (Posted on 1/20/2020)
