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!

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!

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)
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)
Great holster for extra small pistols Review by Joshua

I ordered the Shapeshift Ankle Holster for my PT111 G2, but my pistol was too big for it to be a good way to carry. The holster is well-made, secure in its position and reasonably comfortable to wear, but it will work much better for a smaller pistol. (Posted on 9/14/2019)
Better than not carrying at all Review by Flyboy

First, this ankle holster system works for smaller\thinner firearms. I have a Glock 27 and I will say that is the max size. My Glock 23 is a no go in this setup. And the Glock 27 only works for me in certain dress\casual pants. Regular fit Levis are a no go with the 27. The holster system is well built and some thought went into it. It rides well. With the design, the support tab keeps it from riding down. The velcro straps hold it securely in place. How quick one could draw the firearm is largely going to be how loose your pant leg is. The firearm can be adjusted higher or lower. A lot of good features. I love the entire Shape Shift setup. Ankle holsters of any kind are better than not carrying at all. Just not a quick defense configuration if you need to present your firearm quickly. Practicing will help. (Posted on 8/21/2019)

A good holster but not for me Review by Louie

Finally an ankle holster that is heading in the right direction. However, I stopped wearing the ankle holster because I found the lower wrap under my heel to be too uncomfortable. At work, I have to wear a suit, dress shoes and socks which may be the reason the ankle holster does not work for me. In short, I found the lower wrap distracting because it feels like a bunched up sock. I'll keep an eye on this product for possible improvements to the lower wrap. (Posted on 5/2/2019)

Excellent ankle holster with one caveat Review by Colby
Quality

I've been using this holster nearly every day for the last seven months and love it. It is comfortable and very secure. The only caveat is that the polymer spine that goes into the pocket has rubbed itself smooth and will squeak as I walk. When I reached out to the Alien Gear team about it they suggested putting talc into the pocket, which worked great for a couple of months but adding more talc is simple (if a bit messy if you're not careful).
