S&W M&P Shield 2.0 40 caliber ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
For comfortable concealed carry, the best bet is going to be an M&P Shield 40 M2.0 IWB holster. Carring in this manner can make a subcompact pistol practically disappear, which is why it has become the default carry option for so many people.

But some of them have drawbacks.

Not every Shield 40 2.0 IWB is going to be as comfortable as it could be, due to materials and design. Some are even a bit bulky, which some users find off-putting. Some don't have the best retention or fit, nor allow holster retention to be adjusted to the user's preference. You pretty much have to be satisfied with how the holster comes or else find a new one.

Alien Gear has a better breed of Shield 40 M2.0 inside the waistband holster for you. One that addresses the weaknesses of many lesser models.

Never worry about poor comfort again. The holster base is a multi-layer design, with a ventilated neoprene backer and a core of spring steel and woven nylon. The backer cushions the wearer while letting the skin breathe in hot weather. However, you'll also feel it ride tight with the spring steel flex plate while conforming to your shape.

You won't carry in greater comfort with any other holster.

You also won't have to ever worry about fit or retention. The Shift Shell of the 4.0 IWB is custom-molded for the exact make and model pistol you order the holster for, fitting perfectly right out of the packaging. The unique design of the ShapeShift creates a full wrap of the trigger guard, ensuring the trigger is protected at all times.

The single mounting point of the Shift Shell also allows the overall footprint of the holster to be reduced by more than 20 percent, taking up much less real estate inside the waistband.

Retention is fully adjustable via the Adjustable Retention Unit, and the belt clips can be adjusted for ride height and grip cant and all without the use of tools.

The 4.0 IWB Holster for the M&P Shield 40 M2.0 also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, including the 30 Day Test Drive Trial Period and Forever Warranty.

If you're looking to shift to a better carry holster, you aren't likely to find one in the same class as the 4.0.

extremely loose Review by Jeff

the holster fits my hip nice. But it doesn't hold my gun tight...or even snug for that matter. It just sits in there extremely loose. I would not recommend the 4.0 to anyone that wants to actually carry their weapon. (Posted on 9/19/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Jeff, thank you so much for your feedback! We do apologize for the fitment of the gun here. We definitely recommend in this case to reach out to our customer service representatives. All our holsters offer the option to tighten the retention to your preferred tightness. Please feel free to reach out and we can get you taken care of!

Not For Me Review by Kirk
Quality

I'm not a big man, 5'7" 160 lb. But there was no way I could make this holster work for me. I have a very good belt that supports my holster well but the whole rig with weapon tries to pull off my pants on that side no matter how tight I hook my belt. It's comfortable around the house as long as I'm sitting down but have to continually hitch up my pants and holster. I'm carrying a S&W 9mm semi. For the money I would trade it for a smaller holster in a heartbeat. But alas I am past my trial period and stuck with it. (Posted on 9/18/2020)

I have a box with about 20 holsters for various guns and this is the one I actually use. This is the best holster I own for my S&W M&P. It's comfortable, great retention, smooth draw and reholster. And the price is great! Keep up the great work! (Posted on 9/12/2020)

Absolutely love this holster ! Once I figured out all the adjustments and found the one right for me , its like I dont even have it on !! I love how interchangeable the holster is and exspecially once I get another gun all I have to do is purchase a new shell and not have to get use to another holster. Would definately recommend this holster ! Thanks (Posted on 8/15/2020)

I have been using for 2yrs, 7day a week 12 to 14hrs a day. Zero complains. Looks and feels just like new. Well made. I can switch, to IWB, appendix, OWB. very quickly. I have Sprinfield XD, I got a Glock and just had to buy a shell I wanted. Great invention. Wish it was the first purchase for a holster, could have saved a lot of money. (Posted on 8/15/2020)
Not too bad After I finally got it!!!! Review by N/A

IDK why some of the extra pieces I received were either in the pkg. or affixed to my shell but after talking to customer and viewing too many other holsters, I was able to figure out the parts. I finally got it on my person and it is very comfy. Have wore it all day today 8/11/2020. I understand being busy but not hiring extra help to keep your customers happy. Really going to have to need a new holster bad before I order another one from Aliengear. The shipping was not days or weeks but months. I did buy an all leather shoulder holster from another company and got it in a week as they had a returned one like I needed. I wanted on from AG but I damn sure was not waiting 2-3 months for delivery. All I can say is order at your own risk. And the men that work for AG that does the videos, yeah they are not that easy to put on, at least the first time!!

Phenomenal holster. Easy and quick to draw from. Best I've seen/used. The holster was marked a month for delivery (which was disappointing) but presently surprised when it arrived in half the time. No complaints and would order more. (Posted on 8/1/2020)
Great holster Review by Rob Maupin

This is a great holster and very comfortable. It can be a pain getting it on though. I’m a bigger guy so I needed a holster that doesn’t bother me when I get up and down. This is that holster. But I have found the easiest way to put it on and put it on my pants first then put my pants on. It a big deal and it doesn’t move or ride up my back. It stays close to the body during a jog or activity. I would recommend this holster to anyone. (Posted on 7/29/2020)
