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.

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron
Quality

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

Super comfy fits close to the body! Review by Glock 19 tony

Really well made holster, super comfy, almost forget its there. Friction hold is adjustable from really easy to get out, to strangle hold, death grip, nearly impossible to get out.

The only thing i would change on this; would be to attach some sort of push button trigger guard, so your weapon wont be able to be grabbed from behind, or fall out. (Posted on 3/4/2019)

Some improvement needed Review by Tim W

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
