S&W SD9 VE ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

S&W SD9 VE ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.

Why buy just one SD9 VE holster when you can get up to four for the price of one? Alien Gear has spent more than two years developing a whole new holster system that will change what you can expect from a SD9 holster. In fact, it isn't even a holster at all. It's a carry system that will allow you to carry your SD9VE how you want, when you want.

The core of the ShapeShift is the injection-molded shell, made from a nearly indestructible polymer. The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack for the S&W SD9 VE includes one full Shift Shell and two trigger guards. The proprietary toolless rails fit together and lock by means of the included twist lock, allowing you to put either the full shells together or a full shell and a half-shell to lock to one of the two supplied backers.

The two included backing pads are of a similar design to our award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB holster, and feature the same neoprene backer, spring steel core and Alien Skin surface. There are three carry methods that can be employed with the backers, including two IWB options and one OWB method.

If you attach the shell to the smaller backing pad, you can attach the larger belt clip for use as an SD9 appendix holster. Enjoy a whole other world of comfort with this holster configuration, as few other appendix holsters will carry this comfortably.

For OWB concealed carry, attach the belt slide attachments with the smaller backer. This creates a high-ride hybrid SD9 OWB holster. For those who prefer to conceal with an OWB holster, this will be the easiest method to carry with the ShapeShift holster system. An untucked shirt or light outerwear will be all that's required to conceal in this manner.

For use as a traditional SD9 VE IWB holster, attach the larger backer to the outer shell and trigger guard shell. Each wing has our adjustable belt clips, allowing you to set ride height and grip cant to your satisfaction.

Those who prefer a more robust OWB holster can attach the two outer shells and attach the paddle attachment for an SD9 VE paddle holster.

Concerned about retention? It is completely customizable. We include three sizes of trigger guard retention brackets - light, medium and heavy - that provide passive retention. However, if you prefer or need more, we also include a finger-lock and thumb-release, which gives the wearer up to Level III retention.

No other holster company makes a holster system close to the same level of customizability or function.

Just like our other products, the ShapeShift SD9VE holster system comes with our 30-day "Test Drive" trial period, during which you can wear the holster and decide if it's really what the holster you wanted. If not, return for a refund prior to the lapsing of the trial period.

We also offer you a lifetime warranty on your ShapeShift holster. As long as you own it, we will fix any issue that arises with your ShapeShift holster, regardless if it's due to manufacturing defect or damage. (Given the material it's made from, that will be difficult to manage.) If we can't fix it, we will send you a new holster.

We have set out to change what you can expect from an SD9VE carry holster. You might never want to carry one any other way.

Great holster combo! Review by Matthew Trey Rahn

So many options with this holster combo. My favorite is the appendix carry setup. You get lots of stuff for the money. It is comfortable to carry all day long as well. (Posted on 8/5/2020)
Excellent company and great product. But. Review by BajanSpear

The product is innovative, well manufactured, the company is popular, and it looks both stylish and functional.In the OWB configuration it is fine, and the vehicle mount is neat too. I have no complaint, but it just did not work for me in the IWB mode with a model as small as the P365. My son loved his Alien Gear kit for a full size, however, I just could not find a comfortable fit personally. Good product, would probably try again sometime for a different size carry.

the product is of good quality, one of the things I don't like the modular part is a good idea however it is bigger in size then a typical hybrid holster. I do like that you get 4 configurations in 1 package the inside the wast band are extremely comfortable especially when its in direct contact with your skin. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
Best holster I've ever used! Review by Patrick

Like most gun owners, I have several shoeboxes full of holsters that just don't work. Kydex, custom made leather, you name it. AlienGear just does it right. I'm currently carrying my Sig P365 SAS model 9mm in the paddle OWB configuration. I'm planning to carry appendix as well. I've got several other AlienGear holsters for my other carry guns. They are the best. (Posted on 7/29/2020)
Highly adjustable set up Review by jrt30004

Received the core carry pack and couldn't be happier. Saw complaints about the retention system and and can only say those buyers purchased for the wrong gun or need to exchange due to possible defect on the holster they received.With the retention all the way tight I can have to pull on the gun to get it out. I backed it of to about half maybe three quarters.The system is highly configurable, lightweight and from what I can see made.Time will be the ultimate test, but I am very pleased.
