Springfield XDs 3.3 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.

XDs 3.3 ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

Have you ever stared at the night sky, and wondered if somewhere out in space was a perfectly modular XDs 3.3 holster that would let earthlings that owned one carry any way they wished? No need to invest in a telescope. Alien Gear has just such a holster - the ShapeShift.

The ShapeShift is the culmination of more than two years of research and development in creating more than a holster, but in fact a modular carry system that allows for multiple configurations of a Springfield XDs subcompact holster, including multiple options for concealed carry and open carry.

The core of the ShapeShift is the shell system. With purchase of the base kit, you get one full Shift Shell and two half-length trigger guard attachments. The shells fit together without tools by means of a friction-locking rail system, which is further reinforced by the included twist locks. By assembling shells in a specific manner, and pairing with one of the two included backing pads if desired, you create the type of holster you want to carry your XDs subcompact in.

Prefer an XDs 3.3 IWB holster? There are two possible IWB configurations. One of the included backing pads is a traditional IWB backer, which you might notice is very similar in design to our Cloak Tuck 3.0. It has the same neoprene backpad, Alien Skin surface and adjustable belt clips. Attach a trigger guard shell to a full shell, and install on the backer - and you have an IWB holster.

If you prefer an XDs appendix carry holster, attach the same shell configuration to the smaller base and install the larger appendix carry clip.

You can attach the belt slide clip to create a high riding belt-slide Springfield XDs OWB holster. This holster configuration is perfect for OWB concealed carry, as it conceals easily under an untucked shirt or light outerwear.

However, if you would rather carry openly, you can also assemble both full-length shells and insert the paddle attachment - creating an Springfield XDs 3.3 paddle holster.

Retention? The ShapeShift has both adjustable passive and active retention devices. For passive retention, install one of the included trigger guard bars for light, medium or heavy passive retention. You may also install the included thumb-release or finger-release for active retention...or both. The ShapeShift can have both active and passive retention, whichever one may prefer.

The ShapeShift comes with Alien Gear's Iron Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive warranty policies in the industry. The first component is a 30-day trial period. Take the holster for a test drive. Wear it and see if it's up to your satisfaction. If not, contact us before the end of the 30-day period and we'll buy it back.

Lastly, the ShapeShift comes with a lifetime warranty against any problems that may arise. If any issue should occur with the holster, regardless of how it happens, contact us. We will fix the holster or we will send you a new one - for as long as you own it.

The ShapeShift may be the last holster you ever need to buy.

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)
Highly adjustable set up Review by jrt30004

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.
