S&W M&P Shield 45 Caliber ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

Shield 45 Modular Holster Kit


Why shop for every individual type of Shield 45 holster, when you can get everything you need at once? Alien Gear can get you outfitted with virtually every type of carry holster you'll need for concealed carry and most open carry applications.

The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards. The innovative design of the ShapeShift holster shell makes it easy to switch between them in moments, without the use of tools.

Carry with the Shield 45 concealed carry holster of your choice, then switch to open carry in moments and back again just as quickly, with no loss in fitment, retention or comfort.

For traditional concealed carry, the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes a traditional Shield 45 IWB holster. The comfortable backer keeps you carrying comfortably, with a ventilated neoprene backlayer that keeps you cool and dry. Your kit comes with several choices of belt clip, which can be adjusted to find the perfect ride height and grip cant.

If you prefer appendix carry or a smaller holster tucked in the waistband, there's also a Shield 45 appendix carry holster. The holster sits on a smaller backer, made from the same layers of materials as the IWB. You also get your choice of belt clip, with a small or large appendix carry clip to choose from.

For easy OWB concealment, the appendix carry clip can be exchanged for belt slide clips to create a high, tight belt slide Shield 45 OWB holster. This holster can be covered by a light layer and concealed easily whilst carrying outside the waistband.

For the ultimate in secure open carry, we also include a Shield 45 paddle holster OWB. This holster uses two full-length durable polymer shells, molded from the same type of polymer blend used to make the frames of many firearms just like the Shield 45. It can be worn with active retention, passive retention or both. The paddle attachment can also be switched to a belt slide if desired.

The Shield 45 holster kit also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee. This includes a 30 Day Test Drive trial period after purchase, giving you up to a month to wear these holsters and see if they meet your approval. Return for a refund during that time if not. We also fully warranty the ShapeShift kit and all components for life.

You just might feel a shift in the quality of your carry...

Mixed feelings Review by Danniel

Ordered my holster and that was very easy. What i have a problem with is it took 7 weeks to get shipped out and to my front door. Yet my buddy ordered his the same day I got mine delivered, yet it only took 2 weeks to get delivered. I really enjoyed the product but disappointed about the delivery time for my order. Idk if I'll be ordering anything else from here if shipping is going to take 5 plus weeks to ship for some orders yet other orders take less then 2 weeks. (Posted on 8/12/2020)

So many options with this holster combo. My favorite is the appendix carry setup. You get lots of stuff for the money. It is comfortable to carry all day long as well. (Posted on 8/5/2020)
Excellent company and great product. But. Review by BajanSpear

The product is innovative, well manufactured, the company is popular, and it looks both stylish and functional.In the OWB configuration it is fine, and the vehicle mount is neat too. I have no complaint, but it just did not work for me in the IWB mode with a model as small as the P365. My son loved his Alien Gear kit for a full size, however, I just could not find a comfortable fit personally. Good product, would probably try again sometime for a different size carry.

the product is of good quality, one of the things I don't like the modular part is a good idea however it is bigger in size then a typical hybrid holster. I do like that you get 4 configurations in 1 package the inside the wast band are extremely comfortable especially when its in direct contact with your skin. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
Best holster I've ever used! Review by Patrick

Like most gun owners, I have several shoeboxes full of holsters that just don't work. Kydex, custom made leather, you name it. AlienGear just does it right. I'm currently carrying my Sig P365 SAS model 9mm in the paddle OWB configuration. I'm planning to carry appendix as well. I've got several other AlienGear holsters for my other carry guns. They are the best. (Posted on 7/29/2020)
Highly adjustable set up Review by jrt30004

Received the core carry pack and couldn't be happier. Saw complaints about the retention system and and can only say those buyers purchased for the wrong gun or need to exchange due to possible defect on the holster they received.With the retention all the way tight I can have to pull on the gun to get it out. I backed it of to about half maybe three quarters.The system is highly configurable, lightweight and from what I can see made.Time will be the ultimate test, but I am very pleased.
