S&W SD40 VE ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
Easy OWB concealment is totally possible - you just need the right S&W SD40VE OWB holster to help you do it. Thing about a lot of OWB holsters is that they just don't ride high or tight enough to be easily concealed.

However, if you could get an SD40VE OWB that did ride sufficiently high and tight, that would make it easy to conceal outside the waistband. It would also help if said holster were also comfortable enough to carry all day, because that is a common failing point for many OWB holsters.

That's where we come in.

The ShapeShift SD40VE Belt Slide OWB Holster was designed with just this kind of carry in mind. The belt loops are located just ahead of the trigger guard, placing the holster high enough on the belt line for many people to conceal it with as little as an untucked shirt.

With the flexible backer and low-profile ShiftShell, it's also pulled tight to the body as it flexes to fit the shape of the carrier. This keeps it riding close, instead of sticking out like a sore thumb as so many other OWB holsters do. No need to wear an awning to cover it up.

The backer is made from multiple layers of durable, comfortable materials such as a ventilated neoprene backer, a woven nylon and spring steel core, and our improved Alien Skin textured surface. It's even great against bare skin, wicking away moisture and cushioning the wearer. You'll never feel the texture of your gun through a holster again.

The ShiftShell is custom-molded for your make and model pistol, so retention is great out of the packaging and fitment will never be a problem. The shell also fully wraps the trigger guard, offering more security than many competing designs. You can also dial in passive retention to the exact desired setting.

You don't have to take our word for it entirely. We give you the first 30 days of ownership to wear the holster and see if it lives up to your expectations. Return it for a full refund in that time if not. This grace period - the 30 Day Test Drive - is part of Alien Gear's product guarantee, which also includes a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty on the holster.

Shift to a better carry, and conceal in comfort.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

Super comfy fits close to the body! Review by Glock 19 tony

Really well made holster, super comfy, almost forget its there. Friction hold is adjustable from really easy to get out, to strangle hold, death grip, nearly impossible to get out.

The only thing i would change on this; would be to attach some sort of push button trigger guard, so your weapon wont be able to be grabbed from behind, or fall out. (Posted on 3/4/2019)

Some improvement needed Review by Tim W

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
