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.

The Best Shoulder Harness on the market Review by .10 mm

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)

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)
Worth The Wait Review by DANIEL

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
Quality

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)

Love this shoulder holster! Only wish there were more options for weapons with lights on rail , have modified mine by removing attached holster from leather , then reattaching correct holster to hold weapon with light attached, leather quality is amazing, only issue was not wanting to remove my light.

Small pictures and vague directions. Review by Darren Eggers

Great holster. Comfortable, easy on easy off. Only thing is it has a inside abs half of the gun holster that cannot be mounted with the thumb release button, which I want. No direction as to how to get the other parts or how to mount. The leather thumb release is awkward for me to use. (Posted on 3/30/2020)
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)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hey EDCD, we are sorry to hear that you're not satisfied with the shoulder holster as it is to "bulky". We pride ourselves in making extremely comfortable products as when something isn't comfortable, you most likely won't wear it. When wearing the shoulder holster, these straps do an excellent job distributing the weight of the holster all day long helping alleviate any stress points that grow over time. We also do not recommend wearing any shoulder holster with a hoodie as you cannot easily access your firearm but with proper adjustment and allowing the leather to break-in, this shoulder holster shouldn't feel "bulky". Please reach out to us and we will be happy to help and make things right.
