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.
