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.

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)
RIDES TOO HIGH Review by 22Nout
Quality

I bought this because my current IWB holster has a metal belt clip that would keep eating my shirts. Saw the plastic belt clip and said, "this would work" I'll start by saying that this holster is of high quality. The way AG engineered this holster is next to perfection. My only complaint is that for my G26 it rides too high causing it not to be so concealed as I would want it to be. When I would sit, it would stick out so much that even my kids notice it when they never did before with my other generic IWB holster - but as mentioned, that generic one had a metal belt clip. I know this holster is advertised as an appendix holster but I moved the holster to the 3 o'clock position and it sits better there. However, now it's even more noticeable thus, not very concealable unless I'm wearing a shirt twice my size. I did 22 years as a cop and mostly as an undercover, I'm well versed in concealing a gun. If you're looking for conceal-ability, this is not the holster for you. Though, I will add, that my gun feels more secure in this holster then in my other generic IWB holster. (Posted on 8/15/2019)
The benchmark for A/IWB holsters Review by CAJ

When I first started carrying concealed, I couldn't find an IWB holster that was comfortable at all, much less when I was just wearing a t-shirt. Alien Gear totally nailed it with regards to comfort. A+ (Posted on 1/9/2019)

Bulky and rides high Review by Richard
Quality

I bought this holster for in the video it looked comfy and not too bulky. Upon arrival I put it on using different positions as recommended, but no matter what it rode to high so when I sat down I just get stabbed in the appendix (no pun intended). The holster is not very concealed either for its bulkier than it looks and I wanted it to be for a concealed weapon. I would not recommend this holster for anyone that is looking to conceal a weapon.

Great long lasting product!!! Review by James83

This holster is very durable and reliable, it is one of the most Advanced holsters ive ever come into contact with. It has a ton of customization for your everyday carry uses. Yeah the price is pretty up there compared to every other holster but you get what you pay for and a holster isn't something you want to cheap out on. (Posted on 10/26/2018)
Worth all the research Review by Ryan
Quality

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)

Some good elements but overall displeased Review by Nate
Quality

The biggest issue for me is the holster is way too bulky to conceal, it blatantly prints on clothes I normally have no issues with, It feels kind of cheap. Retention is phenomenal relative to the classic clamshell kydex against leather/fabric. But overall the whole modularity thing feels kind of gimicky because most will set it one way and leave it.

sacrifice comfort for life Review by 2guns
Quality

I like this holster for many reasons,one it covers the trigger.it has a piece on the back that separates steel from skin.one thing im not too happy with,is I like a full firing grip,everytime.and you need an accessory that will allow for straight drop,up and down a bit more capability.i have yet to find a company with such a system.one more eyelet and it would be golden.maybe you guys can experiment or know of such a system,but there is a review on holsters being comfortable.ive been carrying a gun for 29 yrs now,and iwb,appendix,you will sacrifice being totally comfortable,but not to the point of never wanting to carry.a gun is with me or two at all times,everyday,everywhere.PERIOD (Posted on 9/13/2018)
