S&W SD40 VE ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
A S&W SD40VE ankle holster? Is such a thing even possible?

It absolutely is. Not only that, we make an ankle holster for SD40VE pistols that will carry comfortably, securely, and will do so all day, every day, and for years. Given the size of the SD40VE pistol, how could this be possible?

It starts with the strapping design.

The strapping of our SD40VE ankle holster is two-piece, with an ankle strap that connects to a heel loop via a durable polymer insert. This gives the holster vertical and horizontal stability, carrying securely and staying put once fastened.

You also get the comfort of Alien Gear's Cool Vent neoprene, a moisture-wicking perforated neoprene fabric that keeps you dry and breathes against the skin. No more hotspots from leather or chafing from nylon web straps, and no more slipping up and down with motion when you walk.

Never worry about fit and retention in an ankle holster again. This SD40VE ankle holster is the ShapeShift holster, with a full outer shell and trigger guard inner shell. This holster is custom molded for this make and model pistol, so the fit is perfect out of the packaging. The trigger guard is fully wrapped for added security, and passive retention is perfectly adjustable.

You can also adjust the ride height for the perfect carry position.

You can also rest easy knowing this holster comes backed by Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, one of the most comprehensive in the industry. You get a 30 Day Test Drive trial period to wear the holster and see if it's the SD40VE ankle holster you've been looking for; return for a refund in that time if not. We also back the holster with a Forever Warranty, a comprehensive warranty against any defect, damage or otherwise.

This holster will shift what you can expect from ankle carry.

Great holster for extra small pistols Review by Joshua
Quality

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).

I'm returning this holster as I found that I just don't prefer ankle carry. Having said that, this holster is of excellent quality and extremely comfortable. If you're a fan of ankle carry then this is the holster for you! (Posted on 1/1/2019)
Good Holster Review by Grunt162

Great concept for a modular holster system. Very unique design. I wore it tonight for the first time and I can see that I will need to wear regular socks with the system instead of ankle socks. The gun tends to rub against my skin which irritates my skin (personal preference). I would also prefer that the gun would sit straight up and down versus the rearward cant.

With that being said, it is a good system and it does stay in place and does not move around like my other ankle holster. The gun doesn't pull away from my ankle either. It stays nice and tight against my leg so that it doesn't print as much as others. It appears bulky when you first look at it, but it really isn't.

I will be using this on a regular basis at work. I carry a SIG P365 in the holster.

Overall, I like the holster. (Posted on 12/21/2018)
Great Product Review by rcmedic

The ONLY snag here is that I obviously missed that this is NOT compatible with my integrated Crimson Trace Laser and so renders this holster unusable to me. (Posted on 12/9/2018)
