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.

Comfortable and highly concealable Review by JonAK

I never gave ankle carry much thought except for carrying a backup gun, but unfortunately I could never find an ankle rig that worked for me. They were often big and bulky and almost never stayed in place. After reading and watching reviews on the Alien Gear Shape Shift ankle rig, I decided to give it a try for my recent purchase of the Sig P365 which I intend to carry as a BUG. I had some concerns with carrying additional weight on my bad left leg but those concerns were quickly washed away after wearing the ankle holster from Alien Gear for a couple days now. Its very comfortable and conceals well under my pants with the Sig P365. The only thing I would change is maybe add an additional foot strap that better secures the separate ankle sleeve which the main body of the holster wraps around. Sometimes I find myself having to reposition the ankle sleeve on my foot so the bottom portion stays underneath my left foot when putting on a pair of shoes. Besides that it is a great rig!

Uncomfortable Review by Lee

Bought this because I thought that I would be comfortable and found that it's very uncomfortable to wear even with a long sock you have the holster digging into the side of your leg. Would not recommend for anyone using regular shoes. Might be a better experience with boots but I just found it to be a waist of money and will be returning. (Posted on 12/31/2019)
Ankle Holster Review by Geoff

WOW! I'm sold! The Alien shape shifter ankle holster is a must have for anyone who needs or desires to carry a concealed firearm on one's leg. I use the Shape Shifter ankle holster for my Kimber Micro 9 and have put this holster through its paces since receiving it about three weeks ago. I have not been disappointed in its service. The Shape Shifter stays secure and does not slip or slide like some of the elastic ankle holsters do. Walk, run, climb or kick. This holster stays put. I had some concerns about the heel strap being detected and "advertising" I was wearing a gun, but it doesn't show when standing or walking, and what does show when seated is no more tell tale than an ankle support brace. Overall an excellent product! I highly recommend this holster for ankle/lower leg carry. (Posted on 11/19/2019)
Great holster for extra small pistols Review by Joshua

I ordered the Shapeshift Ankle Holster for my PT111 G2, but my pistol was too big for it to be a good way to carry. The holster is well-made, secure in its position and reasonably comfortable to wear, but it will work much better for a smaller pistol. (Posted on 9/14/2019)
Better than not carrying at all Review by Flyboy

First, this ankle holster system works for smaller\thinner firearms. I have a Glock 27 and I will say that is the max size. My Glock 23 is a no go in this setup. And the Glock 27 only works for me in certain dress\casual pants. Regular fit Levis are a no go with the 27. The holster system is well built and some thought went into it. It rides well. With the design, the support tab keeps it from riding down. The velcro straps hold it securely in place. How quick one could draw the firearm is largely going to be how loose your pant leg is. The firearm can be adjusted higher or lower. A lot of good features. I love the entire Shape Shift setup. Ankle holsters of any kind are better than not carrying at all. Just not a quick defense configuration if you need to present your firearm quickly. Practicing will help. (Posted on 8/21/2019)

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)
