Springfield XDM 3.8 Compact (9/40) ShapeShift Shoulder Holster

ShapeShift XDM 3.8 Subcompact Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


If you prefer not to carry on the waistband, or if you occasionally wear apparel that prevents it, an XDM Subcompact shoulder holster is the ideal method for doing so. You can carry comfortably, securely and - depending on how you dress for it - with some serious style as well.


That is, if you've picked a good shoulder holster for XDM Subcompact carry.


There's a short list of what you need to look for. First, the straps need to be adjustable so your Springfield XDM Subcompact leather shoulder holster or nylon model can fit you correctly so you carry comfortably and securely.


Our leather straps have several inches of adjustability, with belt hooks that anchor the holster to the beltline and spread the weight of the pistol more evenly. The ride height of the holster base and magazine carrier pad are also adjustable; set them to ride high or low as needed. The hooks also pull the pistol in tight to the body, making concealment easy.


Comfort cannot be neglected. So many shoulder holsters are "this holster fits most" and aren't made for the utmost in comfort.


Our XDM Subcompact shoulder holster features a clover harness design, which lets the straps articulate and find a natural drape on your shoulders. They move with you as you do. The front of the shoulder harness is padded with our CoolVent neoprene, as are the holster base and magazine carrier base.


Fitment and retention should give you all the confidence in the world in the fit and security of the holster.


The holster is our ShapeShift holster shell, custom-molded for the XDM Subcompact, with a full wrap of the trigger guard for added security. Passive retention is fully adjustable and you have the option of carrying with or without the included removable thumb break strap.


You can also rest easy knowing this product comes backed by Alien Gear Holsters' Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30 Day Test Drive trial period during which you can return the holster for a refund if you aren't satisfied, and a lifetime warranty on the holster itself.


This is a shift in what can be expected from a shoulder holster. Start your Test Drive today to find out for yourself.

I got the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster as a Christmas gift and at first thought, "Wow, that's a lotta stuff to strap on!" But after I got it all adjusted and fit I found I actually had all my gear and no excessive bulk.. Access to my firearm was quick and efficient and comfort was amazing. I can even get in and our of a car with no hassle. This is a great system and I highly recommend it. (Posted on 1/4/2021)

I recently bought a ShapeShift shoulder harness. I am totally blown away by the quality and comfort of this rig. There are so many well thought out features, and custom adjustments. I waited a long time to get this and now I wish I had not waited. My old rig was 20+ years old and very uncomfortable. This rig feels like it was tailored for me. Best holster available. I am so proud to own this holster!! Thanks again Alien Gear! Hope you come out with apparel soon I want to buy a hat and shirt...just to show off!!! (Posted on 11/20/2020)

Well thought out system Review by Chuck
Quality

The shoulder holster has nicely colored leather and the system is very well thought out. The variation in adjustment is almost limitless, between various strap length positions, to cant angle adjustments. It takes a lot of trial and error to get the fit just right, but once you get it custom fitted, the time it takes is worth it. I love the thumb release, and it may be my favorite feature. The retention is nice, and is adjustable on the shell side. The amount of available parts can be eye-opening, and you will have sore fingers from tinkering, but once you have everything down, you will feel like a modular master. It is so awesome to pull the shell of the holster and use it on an outside/inside ShapeShift waistband holster. Thanks for a great product that finally allows me to use a shoulder holster where my firearm is pointed safely downward, instead of horizontally at someone behind me (like at my passenger on my motorcycle).

Good shoulder rig, can use some improvment Review by LugerMan.com

Got a double sided shoulder rig for my Sig 320 45 full size. Left and right.

At first rig appeared bulky and uncomfortable.
Found a design problem with a retention strap been positioned on the inside of the holster.

Changes the lockup and gun position, not a good idea.

But holster works good without the retention.
If you need them, look elsewhere.

I think that needs work.

2nd day in holster started braking in and now feels good and secure.

Like new shoes it needs to be broken in and settle in.

I now find it comfortable and better fit than my competitor shoulder double rigs, for my other gun pairs.

Durability and longevity of it will have to be seen, so far so good. If it lasts a year it will be worth it. (Posted on 10/21/2020)

I' been wearing this holster for about a month now and it only gets more comfortable. After adjusting the angle up on the pistol holder the release is sure and solid. Fit and concealability are top notch. I have recommended this holster to my friends! (Posted on 10/1/2020)
Wow, quality at fantastic price Review by Wally

The innovation and thought that went into the Shape Shift systems is incredible. I have ordered over $400.00 in holster items for a variety of handguns recently and have been amazed at each one. I could not be happier. When I was active in law enforcement and undercover, I wore a Galco Miami Classic for years. It was nice, however, you got what you got - no real options for cant, angle of magazines, etc. The AE gear is incredibly adjustable. I'm amazed at the amount of thought you all had to put this together. And very pleased. I love the interchangeability of the parts and I can mix and match to meet needs of the day. Thank you Alien Gear, I'm a believer in the extra-terrestrial !!!! (Posted on 9/26/2020)
Meh Review by Chris

Very comfortable holster. Well made and easy to adjust for custom fit. Horrible pistol release. If I were to ever need to draw the pistol in any semblance of a hurry, I would be dead. It almost takes two hands due to the catch not releasing correctly. I thought I had it figured out, but it still sucks. No matter how the thumb button is pressed, the hook doesn't fully retract and the pistol needs violently jerked. (Posted on 8/25/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Chris! Thank you so mcu for your feedback and we do apologize for the thumb release issue here. It sounds like the issue may be the retention unit itself. When using the thumb release the retention unit needs to be backed all the way out so the inner notch is not sticking out at all. We hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions!

In today's economy I LOVE to buy American made products whenever possible. Alien Gear has once again provided me with wonderful products. I can't wait to get this home to try it out. I've been a customer for some time and will continue to be. Thank you, Evie, for all the help you gave me! (Posted on 7/4/2020)
