ShapeShift Springfield XD Mod2 .45 Subcompact Shoulder Holster


If you want to conceal in comfort without taking up space on the waist, the ShapeShift Springfield XD Mod2 .45 Subcompact Shoulder Holster is how you can do so. This shoulder holster is design to carry more comfortably and conceal more easily than any other design on the market.

We have improved on the classic design of shoulder holster for XD Mod2 45 Subcompact pistols. Other shoulder holsters can leave one wishing for better fitment, or more comfort. Alien Gear Holsters' innovative design touches will leave you wanting for neither.

Comfort is a design priority. The straps of this XD Mod2 45 Subcompact leather shoulder holster are padded with CoolVent neoprene. We also build in several inches of adjustability, so you can set the straps to the proper length. Belt hooks help distribute the weight more evenly, and the clover harness securing the straps help the straps find a natural resting point on the shoulders.

The belt hooks also pull the gun tighter to the body, enhancing concealment and ensuring greater stability while carrying.

The holster base pad and magazine carrier base pad are also padded for comfort. The holster base pad can also be set to the ride height and cant angle of your choosing. Carry high, tight and horizontal, or bring the holster lower and wear as an XD Mod2 45 Subcompact vertical shoulder holster. Up to two additional magazines can be carried, or a left-handed holster base can be added to carry an additional pistol.

The holster is custom-molded for the Mod2 45 Subcompact, and fully wraps the trigger guard for greater security. Passive retention is fully adjustable, and active retention is also included with your XD Mod2 45 Subcompact shoulder holster.

You also get Alien Gear Holsters' Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30 Day Test Drive trial period and a Forever Warranty on all parts and components against defects or damages of any kind as long as you own it.

Start your Test Drive today and shift to a better carry.

Worth The Wait Review by DANIEL
Quality
Price
Value
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

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)
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)

Excellent holster great for all day carry. Extremely comfortable once fitted to my needs and size. I have worn this holster on many 12+ hour days and trips with no issues at all. Worn it to check trail cameras in hunting season and its a great fit! (Posted on 12/11/2019)
This is the one Review by Justin Thyme

If you are looking for a shoulder holster this is the one. Out of the box I could tell that someone put a lot of energy into the design and wearability. After an hour of reconfiguring and adjusting, I wore this thing with a fully loaded g22 and two double stack mags for 10 hours straight! I didn't want to take it off! Two things: if you use the belt hooks and they ride on your skin, request a couple of extra leather loops to cover them. Second, get some saddle soap or leather oil to quiet down the new leather noise. Now for the pros:

Thumb lock paddle is nice and big without intruding. It mounts on the shell in a place that makes it's function very intuitive. The shell fits the frame like a glove and doesn't rattle but it's still loose enough to draw quickly and quietly and is just as easy to reholster. The cross strap is very comfortably padded and well placed. It will not ride up your neck. The shell rides close to the ribs so that it minimizes interference with your normal movements. Here's the most important pro: it does not interfere with driving. Even if you are shifting an 18speed all day it stays out of the way. This is the best most practical way I have found to EDCC a large frame. Just get it. It exceeds brands that charge way more. Totally worth the money. (Posted on 11/27/2019)
This is a out of the box first impression full video review coming soon Review by TheDjinn661 on YouTube

Just received the Shape Shift Shoulder holster for my Gen3 Glock 19 on Friday. Out of the box the holster came fully assembled with instructions on how to add or remove features such as the thumb break, thumb release button and passive retention add on. The instructions also showed with diagrams on how to adjust the cant of both the fire arm and mag buckets (magazine holders) . After I fully disassembled the holster I adjusted it to my body type which is Big Handsome Man lol and I immediately could fell the difference from other high priced traditional shoulder holsters. This holster took out all the down falls of traditional holsters and added extra comfort features. I cannot wait to get my full video review out on my channel so I can tell my viewers about this amazing product. (Posted on 11/9/2019)
Nice for the price, but should i have spent more? Also left handed warning Review by left handed sig
Quality
Price
Value
Price:
This product seems like a good value for the price as the mitch rosen and galco offerings are hundreds more. While being made of "English bridle leather", there are elastic pieces connecting the leather together, and those elastic pieces will eventually die (think worn out underwear).. this holster will not be a lifelong item, where the aforementioned full leather items will never appreciably degrade. Should I have paid more for a better item that I'll have for life?

Shipping:
Shipping was atrocious, taking a almost a complete month. Want it sooner? Be prepared to fork over as much as an extra $71 to get it shipped in a reasonable time frame. I feel as if I loaned Aliengear $140 for a month. And then when it did "ship", on a Saturday afternoon, only a tracking number was printed.. UPS did not take possession of the item until the following Tuesday! Misleading to be sure. Ordered on Sept 25th, arrived on October 19th. Amazon Prime has spoiled us and I cannot help but feel Aliengear has attempted to capitalize on our 2019 shipping expectations.

The actual holster:
This is a well thought out but fiddly item, and was not fully designed for left handed people. The plastic clamshell that the gun fits into fits exactly. The 2 spare clip containers on the offhand side can be snugged down to a single stack 9mm; nice touch to add the hex keys needed to adjust inside the item. The whole setup seems a bit too big for a 5'10" 161 pound human; I've got the adjustments wound all the way down and it still isn't taut, but is acceptable.

Retaining the firearm can be achieved through three different methods:
- an adjustable passive tab that clicks past the trigger guard
- aforementioned tab plus a leather snap thumb break
- a right handed only positive thumb release

Only 1 of the 3 works 100% for me: the adjustable passive tab. It can be adjusted so tight that you cannot get the firearm out of the holster and then backed off to your preferred break point. Adding the leather thumb break to the passive tab made the firearm difficult to insert and near impossible to retrieve; appears it was an afterthought and wasn't designed for the clam shell to contain both the gun and a strip of leather, though I'll have to revisit that. And finally, the thumb break (my preferred retention method) cannot be switched to left hand; you'll be using your pointer finger to release the thumb break if left handed.

The little plastic knobs/quick releases are a bit cheesy: they are tool-less but it looks like they might break or wear out sooner rather than later. Tiny, easy to lose. I would have preferred a tool-required option but that goes against the rapid reconfigure modular ecosystem Aliengear is creating.

All in all, the item looks great/classy, is well hidden under a sports coat, and seems worth the money. Shipping was offensive, and it was disappointing that the thumb break is right handed only. I was not looking to get into an Aliengear ecosystem; just wanted a nice shoulder holster. (Posted on 10/28/2019)
Great Shoulder Holster but read for details Review by WG
Quality

I used a shoulder holster for the first time on a recent deployment and loved the feel, so I figured I'd get one for my personal carry weapon, a Sig P226. This holster has an amazing look and feel. I agree with a couple of the other reviews though. The instructions weren't quite clear in certain areas and you should have the same cover for the magazine holders as you do for the pistol so it doesn't scrape your arm. In addition, it took about 3 hours for me to set up, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. Being a bigger guy, I had to use a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the straps and the screws are extremely small, so make sure you keep track of them. Adjusting the straps was a little bit of a pain, but only because the leather is new and tight. Since I lowered the rig, I had to take the belt hooks off because they were too low and couldn't be adjusted anymore. I probably wouldn't have liked using them anyway. The rig came assembled but I had to take the holster apart because the Sig was too big. I had to swap the medium rubber spacers on the barrel side of the holster for the larger spacers. Still a little tight because of the thumb break, but hopefully that will change over time. The trigger side of the gun is a little loose, but if I tighten down that side (bottom) any more, the pistol won't come out easy. Adjusting the cant on the holster was easy enough but had to watch a video on how to cant the magazines. Now that I know how, it couldn't be easier. Overall a great buy and I look forward to getting some use out of it. (Posted on 9/21/2019)
Good, but needs one more thing for all day comfort. Review by Redsun.Ronin

Been using shoulder holster for months now and it's a nicely build holster.. but coming from the perspective of a bigger guy; The side that holds the extra mags needs the same flap cover as the pistol side. Without the flap, the magazine digs in, on the underside of my arm. Had to remove the extra mags and use a owb holster for them. Overall Quality: Well built. But would either like to see a add-on flap that i can purchase for the mag side.. or I'll just have to modify the damn thing myself. (Posted on 6/16/2019)
