Springfield XDs 3.3 ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
It would be easier to conceal a slim, subcompact like a Springfield XDs 3.3-in outside the waistband than a lot of other pistols...but try to find a suitable XDs OWB holster that's well suited to it, and it isn't as easy to fill the bill as you might think.

Thing about OWB holsters, even Springfield Armory XDs caliber OWB holsters, is that they tend to get something wrong that makes them unsuitable for concealed carry. Many ride too far away from the body, or have such poor retention that an active retention device is all that keeps the pistol in the holster. Kydex tactical holsters are too bulky and are often uncomfortable and so on.

Sound familiar? Despite the small size and reduced weight, finding a good OWB holster for concealment isn't the easiest thing in the world.

Until now, that is, with the Alien Gear ShapeShift Belt Slide Springfield XDs 3.3 OWB holster. It's tailor-made for easy OWB concealment.

The unique shell design of the ShapeShift fully wraps the trigger guard, reducing the need for additional material and providing superior retention out of the box. However, you can also dial in custom passive retention with the Adjustable Retention Unit.

With the belt slide clips sitting just ahead of the trigger guard, the pistol rides high and tight to the body, moving with you and concealing easily. Many people find an untucked t-shirt or button-up is all that's needed to effectively conceal with this holster; no need anymore for the tell-tale jacket in summertime.

The backer is lined with our perforated Cool Vent neoprene, which cushions, breathes and wicks moisture for incredible comfort. The ballistic nylon and spring steel core gives the holster a firm-yet-flexible spine, and ensures longevity. You'll also appreciate the Alien Skin surface, which grips your pistol but doesn't touch the surface.

You aren't likely to find an XDs OWB holster that conceals this easily nor carries this comfortably.

You also won't find one with as good a guarantee. Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee is one of the most comprehensive in the industry, as we stand by our products. First, start with the 30-Day Test Drive, a trial period for the first month of ownership during which you can return the holster for a full refund. You also get a full lifetime warranty of the holster - any issue will be fixed or the holster will be replaced, as long as you own it.

If you're ready for your concealed carry to evolve...try the ShapeShift. It may be the last holster you ever buy.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Works for me... Review by Medic 78

I purchased the Shapeshift OWB Slider Holster and the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster to see how they would work for me. I am a paraplegic and use a wheelchair for mobility. My fanny pack is what I had been using to carry my weapon but never felt comfortable not having my gun on my person. The Slide Holster is carried on my right hip at 3:30 position. All I need to do is lean to the left to unholster my Glock. I'm quite pleased at how comfortable it is. As to the Shoulder Holster, a review will be forthcoming after I break it in. An additional benefit to the Shapeshift system is that I was able to order different shells for the other Glocks I own. Thanks to the customer service people that I spoke with. They were most helpful. (Posted on 2/24/2020)

Super fast shipping. The holster was well packaged and appeared to be of good quality. Wearing it was a disappointment as there is no give whatsoever to the holster leaving large gaps of space on the sides not shown in the photos. One of the product photos shows it being worn at the 3 o'clock position - in no way an option. Maybe on a larger waist it would be more comfy? I'll be looking to other Alien options.
