Springfield XD Mod 2 AIWB Holster


Appendix carry is convenient — most of the time, at least. Many appendix holsters come at the cost of comfortability and customization, however. We've designed the modular ShapeShift holster to resolve that issue.

Our ShapeShift AIWB holster for Springfield XD Mod.2 3 inch Subcompacts in 9/40 is a modular holster designed to adapt to the concealed carrier's lifestyle. By uninstalling the Shift Shell, which encloses the trigger guard and slide, and mounting it to any of the other available ShapeShift backers, the appendix holster may be modified into an OWB belt slide, OWB paddle or classic IWB holster.

No gimmicks. No compromises. Just control over how you carry.

The ShapeShift appendix holster was made in America to adapt to the lifestyle and preferences of individual gun owners. It was engineered for durability, reliability and comfortability.

This is evident in the backer. It's made of four layers of carefully chosen materials edge bound together — a layer of perforated neoprene that wicks sweat from the body and ventilates the holster backer, a layer of spring steel for flexible support inside the backer, an inner layer of ballistic nylon for durability and a thermo elastomer textile on the front for drag and resilience.

The Shift Shell is made out of a tough injection-molded polymer made to stand the test of time and precisely fit the make and model of your Springfield. An adjustable retention unit may be installed for a tighter or looser hold on the handgun.

The ShapeShift appendix holster is attached to the belt with a single, minimalistic clip.

All the parts, components and materials within the ShapeShift holster are covered by Alien Gear's Forever Warranty. If there's ever an issue, we'll repair or replace the problematic parts for free.

There's a 30-day test drive on this holster. Test it out for 30 days. If you find it's not the most comfortable, concealable holster, we'll buy it back from you with no questions asked.

Love the shapeshift system Review by Michael

Just received my shapeshift appendix holster today.
I ordered the system years ago for my Glock 19 and have purchased shells for others guns. I hear some thoughts of it being bulky and I can see that point but for myself its perfect. I can conceal easily all my guns even in the summer. The convenience along with the comfort is perfect for my body type. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 9/9/2019)
RIDES TOO HIGH Review by 22Nout
Quality

I bought this because my current IWB holster has a metal belt clip that would keep eating my shirts. Saw the plastic belt clip and said, "this would work" I'll start by saying that this holster is of high quality. The way AG engineered this holster is next to perfection. My only complaint is that for my G26 it rides too high causing it not to be so concealed as I would want it to be. When I would sit, it would stick out so much that even my kids notice it when they never did before with my other generic IWB holster - but as mentioned, that generic one had a metal belt clip. I know this holster is advertised as an appendix holster but I moved the holster to the 3 o'clock position and it sits better there. However, now it's even more noticeable thus, not very concealable unless I'm wearing a shirt twice my size. I did 22 years as a cop and mostly as an undercover, I'm well versed in concealing a gun. If you're looking for conceal-ability, this is not the holster for you. Though, I will add, that my gun feels more secure in this holster then in my other generic IWB holster. (Posted on 8/15/2019)

Initially, looked bulky, But after fine tuning the retention and putting it on, it's super comfortable and the draw feels great! The quality of the product is amazing and who can complain with made in America and the price is affordable and comes with the additional pieces for Shapeshift series.

All in all a very great product, glad I purchased this holster! (Posted on 5/31/2019)

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns
Quality

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)
