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.
