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