Inside the Waistband Holster for Shield 45


The ShapeShift Shield 45 IWB Holster is an evolution of concealed carry holsters. We have designed it from the ground up to carry better, with more comfort, a superior fitment and customizable retention. Your gun fits better in it, it fits you better than other holsters and feels better while you carry it.

You'll never feel comfort like this. The comfortable base of this Shield 45 concealed carry holster features a backing layer of perforated neoprene. It breathes against the skin and wicks away moisture, keeping you cooler and drier than with similar holsters.

The innovative design of the ShapeShift shell allows this IWB Shield 45 holster to have a reduced footprint inside the waistband. It's 30 percent narrower in width, taking up less room and carrying more comfortably. You'll also notice the durable spine of the holster, made of layers of spring steel and woven nylon, flexing to fit your shape as if the holster was tailor-made for you.

The Shift Shell itself is custom-molded for the Shield, giving you superior fitment and better retention of the pistol while carrying. The retention is actually adjustable; the on-board Adjustable Retention Unit can be set to the exact retention setting you like. Slick draw, tight hold, somewhere in between...it's all up to you.

You get your choice of belt clips, though other forms of clip can be purchased for even more options. Belt clips are also adjustable to set the perfect ride height and grip cant for you.

You can also rest easy knowing that your Shield 45 IWB holster comes backed by a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty. You also get the first 30 days of ownership to wear and evaluate the holster, and see if you enjoy carrying it. If not, you can return it during that time for a full refund if unsatisfied for any reason. That's our Iron-Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive product guarantees in the industry.

Get ready for concealed carry to get a whole lot better.

extremely loose Review by Jeff
Quality

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)

Ordered this product about a month ago was informed that could be possible 4 to 6 weeks for shipping was not upset about that at all. When I finally did receive the product the product is Bar None above other holster companies because I have several other holsters, still getting used to it but definitely love the fact that it fits on me so perfectly so smug and nice my firearm fits in their beautifully don't have to worry about it ever fallen out or getting caught up or or misfiring or anything like that product Bar None the best on the market couldn't be happier (Posted on 8/21/2020)

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
Quality

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
Quality

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)
