Springfield XDM 3.8 Compact (9/40) ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

XDM 3.8 Compact Modular Holster Kit


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.
Some people don't want to carry their pistol in just one way, and as a result having just one Springfield XDM 3.8 compact holster isn't going to cut it. Some people like to be able to have options. They want deep concealment one day, total open carry the next day. At some times, IWB carry is fine and at others, it's really not what you want.

Why settle for just one XDM 3.8 compact holster if multiple options for carry is something you demand of your carry setup?

You don't have to settle anymore. Alien Gear brings you the ShapeShift XDM holster - a reinvention of just what a holster is capable of.

The ShapeShift isn't merely a holster; it's an entire carry system with multiple holster configurations, allowing the user to carry their Springfield XDM 3.8 compact just about any way they want to. This holster system was painstakingly designed to give the user an unparalleled degree of modularity and versatility, unlike any other holster on the market to date.

The core of the ShapeShift is the shell system. Full-length and half-length shells - which cover only the trigger guard - are deployed with the appropriate holster backer and belt attachments to give you the holster configuration of your choice. The shells lock together via an interlocking rail system and a tool-less twist lock mechanism. Then you select the backer you want and the belt attachment you desire.

For instance, if you prefer a classic XDM IWB holster, fit a full shell and a half shell together, and install them on the larger backer included in the ShapeShift kit. The backer itself is a slightly smaller version of our Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB hybrid holster, and it has the same neoprene backpad and Alien Skin surface. Fit together and you have a traditional IWB holster - it's even compatible with our Cloak Dock IWB holster mount.

However, if you prefer appendix carry, mount the shells to the smaller backer and install the larger IWB clip. You now have a Springfield XDM 3.8 compact AIWB holster.

Rather wear it outside the waistband but still conceal? Install the belt slide attachment instead of the appendix clip, and you have a high-riding belt slide XDM OWB holster. This will let you conceal while wearing your gun outside the waistband under minimal outerwear.

Or, if you prefer, you can assemble both full-length shells and install the paddle attachment. This gives you an XDM 3.8 compact paddle holster made of ultra-durable polymer.

Adjustable retention is also part of the ShapeShift holster system, including adjustable passive retention and active retention devices being available for this holster system.

The ShapeShift comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. Just as with our other products, you get the first 30 days of ownership to decide if it's the holster system you've been searching for. During that period, you may contact us if unsatisfied and we will buy the holster back.

We think you won't want to take it off.

The ShapeShift XDM 3.8 compact holster also comes with a comprehensive lifetime warranty. No matter how an issue with the holster arises, we will fix it or we will send you a brand new holster. Forever.

Are you ready for a whole new way to carry?

Great holster combo! Review by Matthew Trey Rahn

So many options with this holster combo. My favorite is the appendix carry setup. You get lots of stuff for the money. It is comfortable to carry all day long as well. (Posted on 8/5/2020)
Excellent company and great product. But. Review by BajanSpear

The product is innovative, well manufactured, the company is popular, and it looks both stylish and functional.In the OWB configuration it is fine, and the vehicle mount is neat too. I have no complaint, but it just did not work for me in the IWB mode with a model as small as the P365. My son loved his Alien Gear kit for a full size, however, I just could not find a comfortable fit personally. Good product, would probably try again sometime for a different size carry.

the product is of good quality, one of the things I don't like the modular part is a good idea however it is bigger in size then a typical hybrid holster. I do like that you get 4 configurations in 1 package the inside the wast band are extremely comfortable especially when its in direct contact with your skin. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
Best holster I've ever used! Review by Patrick

Like most gun owners, I have several shoeboxes full of holsters that just don't work. Kydex, custom made leather, you name it. AlienGear just does it right. I'm currently carrying my Sig P365 SAS model 9mm in the paddle OWB configuration. I'm planning to carry appendix as well. I've got several other AlienGear holsters for my other carry guns. They are the best. (Posted on 7/29/2020)

Received the core carry pack and couldn't be happier. Saw complaints about the retention system and and can only say those buyers purchased for the wrong gun or need to exchange due to possible defect on the holster they received.With the retention all the way tight I can have to pull on the gun to get it out. I backed it of to about half maybe three quarters.The system is highly configurable, lightweight and from what I can see made.Time will be the ultimate test, but I am very pleased.
