S&W M&P Shield 45 Caliber ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
• Special streamlined design enhances concealability and allows you to carry with full size guns.
• Made up of two pieces that work together to provide support and prevent slipping or moving.
• Unique and durable materials are immediately ready to use—no break in time!

Looking to carry a backup gun that packs a wallop, or prefer deeper-than-normal concealment? A Shield 45 ankle holster could be an ideal way to do it.

The only problem is that not every ankle holster for M&P Shield 45 pistols is necessarily designed to carry comfortably, securely, and with no compromise in the quality of fitment or retention. So many other ankle holsters lack in these areas; most demand you choose between carrying how you want or carrying with the utmost of quality in holster function.

Alien Gear doesn't do that kind of compromise. You get a quality carry or we don't make it. How are we able to offer an ankle holster like this?

Start with the two-piece design of the ankle holster base. The holster attaches to an ankle wrap piece, which has a durable polymer insert that inserts into a pocket in the included heel strap piece. Once fastened together, you get vertical and horizontal support. That gives you a Shield 45 ankle carry holster that carries securely.

Wondering about comfort? You'll be amazed. Our holster is made with our CoolVent perforated neoprene, which breathes against the skin and wicks away moisture. The plush strapping material won't chafe or produce hotspots like thick leather.

Fitment and retention are custom. The holster is custom-molded for the Shield 45, fitting no other pistol other than the one you order the holster for. The innovative ShapeShift shell fully wraps the trigger guard, enhancing security, and features adjustable passive retention. Dial in the hold exactly how you want it. Ride height is also adjustable, so you can find the right carry position in concert with your footwear.

You also get the benefit of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. This includes a 30 Day Test Drive trial period, during which you can return the holster for a full refund, and a lifetime warranty on the holster against any and all defects or damages.

If you're ready to shift your expectations of what ankle carry can be like, get your own test drive started today.

A good holster but not for me Review by Louie

Finally an ankle holster that is heading in the right direction. However, I stopped wearing the ankle holster because I found the lower wrap under my heel to be too uncomfortable. At work, I have to wear a suit, dress shoes and socks which may be the reason the ankle holster does not work for me. In short, I found the lower wrap distracting because it feels like a bunched up sock. I'll keep an eye on this product for possible improvements to the lower wrap. (Posted on 5/2/2019)

NOT A FAN Review by Douglas

I am a big fan of Alien Gear and constantly push the product to all my friends. This is not a complaint on the product because it has done everything it said it would do. But as for the ankle holster it is not something I would recommend. I had a hard time putting it on and positioning it the way I could feel comfortable with. It may be more me than the holster, but unless you just got to have it then I wouldn't buy it. After the failure of trying to get it to fit it has set in the package it came in on and in the drawer where it has collected dust. I can urge enough this is not a knock on the product because it is an awesome product but the ankle holster did not work for what I wanted it to do. (Posted on 2/25/2019)

Excellent ankle holster with one caveat Review by Colby

I've been using this holster nearly every day for the last seven months and love it. It is comfortable and very secure. The only caveat is that the polymer spine that goes into the pocket has rubbed itself smooth and will squeak as I walk. When I reached out to the Alien Gear team about it they suggested putting talc into the pocket, which worked great for a couple of months but adding more talc is simple (if a bit messy if you're not careful).

I'm returning this holster as I found that I just don't prefer ankle carry. Having said that, this holster is of excellent quality and extremely comfortable. If you're a fan of ankle carry then this is the holster for you! (Posted on 1/1/2019)
Good Holster Review by Grunt162

Great concept for a modular holster system. Very unique design. I wore it tonight for the first time and I can see that I will need to wear regular socks with the system instead of ankle socks. The gun tends to rub against my skin which irritates my skin (personal preference). I would also prefer that the gun would sit straight up and down versus the rearward cant.

With that being said, it is a good system and it does stay in place and does not move around like my other ankle holster. The gun doesn't pull away from my ankle either. It stays nice and tight against my leg so that it doesn't print as much as others. It appears bulky when you first look at it, but it really isn't.

I will be using this on a regular basis at work. I carry a SIG P365 in the holster.

Overall, I like the holster. (Posted on 12/21/2018)

The ONLY snag here is that I obviously missed that this is NOT compatible with my integrated Crimson Trace Laser and so renders this holster unusable to me. (Posted on 12/9/2018)
Great Holster at an Excellent Price Review by Patrick

Fantastic holster! You can wear this all day and forget you're wearing it. Pistol stays securely in place. My only criticisms: 1) Getting it adjusted is difficult and instructions are sub par. You should have your own video on setting the holster up. I had to go to Youtube to find a third party review who demonstrated exactly how to set up (Thanks "Tactical Black Guy") without him I never would have figured this out on my own; 2) There needs to be an adapter or some sort of height adjustment for those who wear boots. If you wear boots over 4" you'll have to leave them partially unlaced as the holster will not fit properly with boots. Overall, a great product. If you work in an environment where waist carry is difficult to conceal, this is an excellent option. Conceals well. Comfortable. Cannot slide down. Gun stays securely in place. And the wrap around velcro cover gives an added layer of concealment. What more could you ask for? (Posted on 11/18/2018)
