S&W M&P Shield Performance Center 9mm/.40cal ShapeShift Appendix Carry Holster


Shield Performance Center AIWB Holster

Not interested in the same old M&P Shield 9/40 Performance Center AWIB holster? There are a lot of them out there, and a lot of them look the same. Pancakes of kydex or leather, leather hybrid holsters...a bounty of choices.

But they all seem to have something shorted. Kydex and leather pancake Performance Center Shield appendix holsters aren't always as comfortable as they should be and they don't always offer adjustable retention. Hybrid appendix holsters often aren't made with comfortable materials or are bigger than they should be - defeating the purpose of appendix carry.

Tired of the status quo yet? So are we. You don't need or want just an appendix holster - you need a better one, and that's what Alien Gear set out to create with the ShapeShift Performance Center Shield appendix carry holster.

The shell, injection molded to fit only the Performance Center Shield, is designed to fully wrap the trigger guard, ensuring a better and more secure fit than any other holster like it. Retention is also fully adjustable with the Adjustable Retention Unit bar installed, which lets you dial in the passive retention to exactly your preferred setting. You can also adjust the retention shell for cant angle should you prefer to.

The backer employs a back layer of ventilated neoprene, which will cushion but also help keep you cool. The core of the backing pad is layers of woven ballistic nylon and spring steel. That gives the holster enough strength to anchor to the body, but also to last for years of surface. You'll also appreciate the Alien Skin textured surface fabric that cuts down on holster wear.

Don't believe it will live up to the hype? Take the first 30 days of ownership to think it over. You can return the ShapeShift S&W M&P Shield 9/40 Performance Center AIWB holster within the first month of ownership for a full refund. We think you'll never want to appendix carry with any other.

You also get a full lifetime warranty, and any issue will be fixed or you get a brand new holster. Period.

Get ready for appendix carry to evolve beyond your expectations.

Worth all the research Review by Ryan
I have done a lot of research on appendix carry holsters, and this one is probably the best I have seen ( I have not seen them all).

Subjective: I find it very comfortable to appendix carry. It does get hot, but what holster doesn't? Seems to wick the moisture nice, but I live in a dry climate.

Objective: Similar price for similar products. Has a Trigger guard. Quality plastic that fits the firearm and protects it. Snug fit to belt. Very customizable with the expansion pack.

Suggestion: Buy the pack so you have more options down the road, vs just the appendix holster. (Posted on 9/19/2018)
Amazing Review by Ricky
Well worth the money. Super comfortable, to the point on literally forgetting I have it on. Usually carry appendix and even with gun in while sitting (in a chair, driving ECT) hardly notice it's there. Inside material is amazing. Doesn't cover the hand grip/ mag extension. Is bulky as in thickness (pant size will need to be accounted for). Tightness is adjustable, with audible"click" when holstered. Amazing holster, a big thank you to alien gear. (Posted on 4/11/2018)
Well Made / Very Comfortable Review by Kurt
I was told about Alien Holsters when I was in Cabela's Sporting goods store. The guy was right. This is a first rate top notch company. I called as asked a million questions. The gentleman was patient and understanding. He answered all my questions in detail and informed me about the ShapeShift holsters and the 30 day trial as well as the "Lifetime warranty!!" He didn't pressure me to buy. Matter of fact he told me to think it over and if I wanted to buy I could call back or order online. The ShapeShift is a great innovative idea. I was hesistant about how it would look, weigh and perform (AIWB). I was wrong. It's very very comfortable and light weight. I've been wearing it around the house to get used to it. I forget I have it on. That has never happened with any other holster. It does not dig into me when I sit down. I don't print with the AIWB. With every other holster I have and had to really be aware. I could go on and on. I guess you can tell I'm happy. I will order the set soon and a shell for my other firearm. Thanks to the guy in Cabela's and the team at alien holsters. I'm now an ALIEN!! (Posted on 12/8/2017)
