S&W M&P Shield Performance Center 9mm/.40cal ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster

$55.88
There are so many M&P Shield 9/40 Performance Center IWB holsters out there to choose from. Why isn't there a better one, though? Almost all of them are retreads of the same old thing and what separates any one from the other?

Too many choices can sometimes be a bad thing if the choices are basically all the same.

Alien Gear has something new for you. A Performance Center Shield IWB holster where almost every aspect has been improved.

First, the backer. Many Shield IWB holsters suffer from having backers that are too big and too bulky to be truly comfortable. The ShapeShift's innovative shell design allows us to reduce the overall footprint of the backer without sacrificing comfort or durability. That way, you won't feel like you're wearing a football field inside the waistband.

The materials used in making the backer will ensure a better carry than many other IWB holsters. The layer sitting against the skin is our Cool Vent perforated neoprene, which is breathable and sweat-wicking for greater comfort. The core of the holster is layers of woven nylon and spring steel, which gives the holster a firm but flexible spine that feels incredibly secure but conforms to your shape well. The top layer is Alien Skin, a textured fabric that keeps holster wear from happening.

The ShapeShift M&P Shield 9/40 Performance Center waistband holster shell is unlike any other design on the market. We have redesigned our holster shells to fully wrap the trigger guard, giving it better retention and fit out of the box than any other holster.

Like our previous holster designs, retention is completely customizable. Install the Adjustable Retention Unit and dial in the exact passive retention that you wish to have with your ShapeShift holster.

What this adds up to is a slimmer holster than you may be used to carrying, that's also even more comfortable, is built to last and carries your pistol more securely and better than any other holster you may have ever found.

However, you also get Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, including a 30-day Test Drive trial (during which you can return the holster for a full refund if unsatisfied during the first month of owning it) and a comprehensive lifetime warranty.

If you're looking for your daily carry to evolve...try out the ShapeShift. You may never carry with anything else...

probably the best IWB holster I have ever had. Easy to use, good retention and comfortable. I have been using it for over a year and it has held up great. I would like to have had mental clips, but other then that , it's perfect for my needs.

Excellent Review by sdharvey

I got this holster about a month ago now and I have worn it every single day so far. I have not had any problems or discomforts out of the holster itself. I have come to find that any discomfort I do have though is from the size of the gun itself. I highly recommend getting this holster, My favorite thing about it is the retention. I never have to worry about it accidentally falling out. I also love that its tuck-able since I wear dress clothes almost every day. I did a lot of research prior to picking this and I am so glad that I did. I will be buying more shells for my other pistols as well.. (Posted on 8/7/2019)
Florida tested Florida Approved Review by Tactical Waffle

I am relatively new to conceal carrying and love my full size sig P-320, but I live in Florida and thought that even with this holster I would be incapable of carrying it unless it was winter or as close to winter as Florida gets and under at least a hoodie or large coat. I was astonished to be so wrong. I have carried this in the Florida hot humid summer sweating my ass off and yet the sig stays dry the holster gets a little damp but dries quickly and is always super comfortable. I conceal at the 3:00 position with a foreword cant and I can bend over, sit down and drive with my beast of a gun concealed as ever. I decided to actually really push my limits with this holster and helped a close friend move today. Even with my firearm and holster I was still able to comfortable move boxes get in and out of truck beds (sometimes by jumping), move couches and was still comfortable and concealed without an undershirt and wearing nothing other than a pair of cargo shorts and a black sleeveless shirt. Alien Gear FTW
PS: I took a nap wearing it by accident it was a comfy nap 10/10 (Posted on 7/31/2019)
Great for every day use Review by Robert L

I have worn this holster every day for a couple of years now. Still looks almost new after 365 day use. Very comfortable, you almost forget you're wearing it. Worth every penny. Wears well no matter what season. Doesn't print and no one knows it's there. Comfortable standing or sitting with great retention of firearm. (Posted on 7/12/2019)

Bought my shapeshift 4.0 after a police officer highly recommended alien gear. I have been through a lot of different holsters for my full size .40 cal and I'm pretty demanding and alien gear by far is the best of the best I've ever had and used. Very versatile with its options and adjustability not to mention I forget I'm wearing it at times . I'm going to expand on my 4.0 system . I love it's made to fit my gun and the fact I can actually get it in left handed. No regrets. A must have for anyone (Posted on 7/2/2019)
Good quality and design BUT adds 4" to waist Review by Fatso
Quality

This is honestly a really nice holster. The materials and design are great. I like that everything is modular and can switch things out and customize it. HAVING SAID THAT... This holster is basically useless to me. I wear a size 32 waist and have gained a little weight in the last year or so. I cant wear this holster with any of my current pants. So this isnt really a problem with the holsters design or construction but with me being a fatty. Just know that if you get this holster you will need to size up 4-6" inches on your waist for it to work. I had to get a size 38 to make it work. I dont feel like buying a whole new wardrobe so Ill probably try something a little smaller. Id honestly return it as its useless to me now but I dont have the box anymore and with shipping etc it doesnt seem worth it. Thats one of the risks I guess. (Posted on 6/29/2019)
Great holsters Review by MIke

I bought my first one for my Glock 29. I have a medium frame at 5' 6" and I was amazed at how comfortable this holster is with that wide gun. I wore it everywhere for a week and barely noticed it. Make your adjustments and the weapon stays put! I bought one for my Glock 26 and plan to buy another for my Glock 43. Absolutely GREAT holsters. BTW, I rarely write reviews on anything...this one was very easy! (Posted on 6/12/2019)
Extremely comfortable Review by Dan R.

This thing is great. Never thought I'd be able carry a full size 1911 so comfortably. And for only around $55. That's pretty mind blowing. A plain Kydex holster costs more than that. The combination of functionality, customization and value is unmatched, in my opinion. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/11/2019)
