Shield 45 Caliber AIWB Holster


If you're looking to carry in the appendix position, you'd better pick the right Shield 45 appendix carry holster. Many appendix carry holsters leave something to be desired in terms of fitment, retention but most importantly comfort. Hard leather doesn't always wear the best against the skin and rigid plastics aren't always a whole lot better either.

Alien Gear has a better breed of Shield 45 appendix holster for you. The ShapeShift appendix holster is designed to carry comfortably through years of faithful service, with a custom fit and adjustable retention. This will keep you from weighing the pros and cons every time you want to carry, and will give you confidence to carry every day.

Say goodbye to hotspots and sharp edges digging into you as you carry. This Shield 45 appendix IWB deploys a plush, comfortable holster base to ensure your comfort. The perforated neoprene backer breathes against the skin and wicks away moisture to keep you cooler and drier than other materials, while also providing a cushion.

You won't have to worry about the holster base going limp after break-in; layers of ballistic nylon and spring steel form a durable spine. The holster feels anchored in place once fastened, but also flexes to fit your shape perfectly. It carries like it was made to fit where you insert it in the waistband.

The holster shell of your Shield 45 AIWB holster is custom-molded, fitting the pistol perfectly without the break-in period of so many other custom holsters. This aids in retaining the pistol, and the innovative ShiftShell fully wraps the trigger guard for added security.

Retention is fully adjustable, giving you the ability to set the draw how you want it. Prefer a slick draw? A tight hold? Somewhere in between? Set it yourself via the Adjustable Retention Unit. It takes mere seconds, and requires no tools.

Worried this holster might not live up to the hype? We know you'll think it does, but just in case it doesn't we give you the first month of ownership to find out for yourself. The holster can be returned in the first 30 days of ownership if you aren't satisfied for a full refund. That 30 Day Test Drive is part of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee on our holsters, along with a comprehensive warranty on the holster and all components for life.

This is how you shift to a better appendix carry. Get your test drive started today!

Too bulky Review by Bob
Quality

I bought the kit, which was fine, but was looking for an AIWB holster and this one is WAY too big. I would not recommend it. (Posted on 7/16/2020)
Horrible holster, waste of money. Review by Justin
Quality
Price
Value
I wish I didn't waste my money on this holster. It is bulky, uncomfortable, and does not conceal even in the slightest. My P365 prints like no tomorrow even with the flush fit magazine. Buy this holster if you want everyone to know you are "concealing". Save your money and head on over to a competitor. Incredibly comfortable and even with extended magazines, you can't tell I'm carrying. Alien gear probably won't publish this review but you have been warned! (Posted on 6/29/2020)
NOT for the skinny guy... Review by John
Quality

So I purchased the Shape Shifter kit. I read multiple reviews from people saying it conceals perfectly for people of all body weights, shapes, and sizes. Not the case...Yes, I'm a skinny guy, but this thing does not conceal AT ALL. If anything, it makes it more noticeable. Looks like I'm pregnant. You've got about 2-3 inches of material that is under your waistline. Would not recommend for skinny guys. (Posted on 6/27/2020)
ALWAYS get premium shipping Review by Mickey
Quality

I've bought AG holsters before and their product is top notch. I'm happy to see good quality made stuff made here at HOME, USA. However, if you do buy this specific item or anything else from AG, just get premium shipping. I choose standard shipping and the USPS is taking two weeks to get it to me! It left AG's facility two weeks ago and was reprioritized so I basically "get it when I get it". Annoying. Always go UPS or FedEX. Other than that, I cant wait for my gear! :D I know it'll be solid and work just the way I need it to. (Posted on 5/18/2020)

Excellent product! Very comfortable concealment for everyday carry. The quality of this product is unmatched. I will be purchasing alien gear holsters for all of my concealed firearms. (Posted on 4/23/2020)
Too Bulky for IWB Carry Review by Mike
Quality
Price
Value
I'm not a small person, but while I like the quality of the Holster, it's hard to get in and out of your waist because of all the "plastic" on this thing. I want a simple holster that holds the gun in, and lets you put it on easily. This thing is 2" thick? (Posted on 3/21/2020)
Perfect fit Review by Kenneth

I bought the IWB for my Sig Sauer P365, it fits like a glove and is very comfortable, love the backing material. No more hard kydek against my skin. It does seem a bit larger than my kydek but is hardly noticeable and very concealable, as with all new things you will get use to any difference. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 3/4/2020)

I Hate This Thing Review by Brandon
Quality

I hate this holster more than I can possibly explain. for the price would have expected far more options to adjust the cant and where it rides. Would not buy again and do not recommend for any one that wants to be able to adjust the cant of the gun. your only option is it sitting straight down and that's not what I was wanting.

Love the shapeshift system Review by Michael

Just received my shapeshift appendix holster today.
I ordered the system years ago for my Glock 19 and have purchased shells for others guns. I hear some thoughts of it being bulky and I can see that point but for myself its perfect. I can conceal easily all my guns even in the summer. The convenience along with the comfort is perfect for my body type. Thanks for a great product. (Posted on 9/9/2019)
