S&W M&P40c Compact 3.5 inch barrel ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
For carrying even a light compact pistol like the M&P40C, ankle holster carry seems like it might not be the best option. After all, that's normally how you'd carry a snubbie or pocket .380 right?

Wrong. There is an M&P40C ankle holster that is more than up to the task, that can carry this gun comfortably, securely and for years of faithful service. You just need the right holster to do it.

That's the Alien Gear line of ankle holsters for M&P40C handguns.

You won't believe the comfort as the ventilated neoprene strapping cushions while holding tight, but also breathes against the skin and wicks away moisture. Don't worry about chafing or hot spots, as this holster is engineered to avoid the typical ankle holster pitfalls.

The security and stability of carry is unlike any other M&P40C ankle holster out there. Ours has a two-piece strapping system, with an ankle strap and heel loop that gives it horizontal and vertical stability. It stays where you secure it, so you don't have to worry about it if you walk at more than a snail's pace. The ride height is even adjustable, so you can set the right carry position for you.

The fit and retention are custom. The holster is custom-molded for the M&P40C, fitting perfectly out of the box without any break-in period necessary. Dial in the perfect retention level for carrying, as the Adjustable Retention Unit allows you to do just that. Fear not about the trigger; the ShapeShift shell system fully wraps the trigger guard, keeping it protected and safe.

Sound too good to be true? You get 30 days to make up your mind after purchase. That's our 30 Day Test Drive trial period, which is part of our Iron-Clad Guarantee on our holsters. We'll buy the holster back if you aren't convinced during that time. If you are, then you can also rest easy knowing the holster is also backed by a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty.

This is a fundamental shift in how good ankle carry can be. Schedule yourself a test drive today!

I purchased the ankle holster in 2018 and I've worn it almost everyday. It has certainly held up to the wear and tear. I recently misplaced my ankle strap (weekend camp trip) and I messaged Alien Gear. FREE replacement to my door in just a couple days. What an awesome company. Will do business again soon.

I have always used Alien Gear products and will continue to do so. The ankle holster is the best on the market and lives up to its billing.
My only concern is your turn around time on your products. I realize that with the Covid 19 going on it is unique. But I also think that you production time can be reduced.
I want to thank your production team very much for all their hard work during this time,
I believe in buying American products and I thank everyone at Alien Gear for their dedication and hard work.

Comfortable and highly concealable Review by JonAK

I never gave ankle carry much thought except for carrying a backup gun, but unfortunately I could never find an ankle rig that worked for me. They were often big and bulky and almost never stayed in place. After reading and watching reviews on the Alien Gear Shape Shift ankle rig, I decided to give it a try for my recent purchase of the Sig P365 which I intend to carry as a BUG. I had some concerns with carrying additional weight on my bad left leg but those concerns were quickly washed away after wearing the ankle holster from Alien Gear for a couple days now. Its very comfortable and conceals well under my pants with the Sig P365. The only thing I would change is maybe add an additional foot strap that better secures the separate ankle sleeve which the main body of the holster wraps around. Sometimes I find myself having to reposition the ankle sleeve on my foot so the bottom portion stays underneath my left foot when putting on a pair of shoes. Besides that it is a great rig!

I've been wearing this for a week and a half and I love it. I work in an environment wearing a gun is not permitted so I cannot take a chance at getting caught. This conceals a P365 perfectly, and I am sorry I didn't find this sooner. (Posted on 4/13/2020)

The holster is amazing. It’s super light weight, comfortable and secure. It allows air flow so no sweaty leg issues and is quite durable. If you’re a man and you don’t wear girl jeans then it isn’t noticeable at all. Perfect concealable ankle holster. I would definitely recommend this holster. (Posted on 4/7/2020)

Went from a Uncle Mikes ankle holster to this. Definitely nice not having a calf-strap.Seems comfortable enough and I'm getting used to wearing it. Feels like it keeps everything nice and secure. (Posted on 1/9/2020)
Uncomfortable Review by Lee

Bought this because I thought that I would be comfortable and found that it's very uncomfortable to wear even with a long sock you have the holster digging into the side of your leg. Would not recommend for anyone using regular shoes. Might be a better experience with boots but I just found it to be a waist of money and will be returning. (Posted on 12/31/2019)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello! Thank you for the feedback and the review! We do apologize about the uncomfortable feeling this caused. Our Ankle Holster is definitely geared more toward boot type shoes. If you plan to wear this with regular shoes, we recommend adjusting the ride height so it is more comfortable to wear.

Ankle Holster Review by Geoff

WOW! I'm sold! The Alien shape shifter ankle holster is a must have for anyone who needs or desires to carry a concealed firearm on one's leg. I use the Shape Shifter ankle holster for my Kimber Micro 9 and have put this holster through its paces since receiving it about three weeks ago. I have not been disappointed in its service. The Shape Shifter stays secure and does not slip or slide like some of the elastic ankle holsters do. Walk, run, climb or kick. This holster stays put. I had some concerns about the heel strap being detected and "advertising" I was wearing a gun, but it doesn't show when standing or walking, and what does show when seated is no more tell tale than an ankle support brace. Overall an excellent product! I highly recommend this holster for ankle/lower leg carry. (Posted on 11/19/2019)
