Alien Gear Gun Holsters

AlienGear ShapeShift Holster


Incredible New Features

As a team fuelled by product innovation, we have a desire to push the status quo. It’s time to advance the concealed carry world once again. The revolutionary ShapeShift Gun / Firearm Holster provides users a Modular System that moves past the performance of the standard holster. With its groundbreaking design, you can shift from one carry position to the next to suit your lifestyle. Welcome to the future of concealed carry.

CoolVent Neoprene


Using sweat-wicking technology, this perforated neoprene will keep you cool and dry. This breathable material covers all previously exposed concealed carry holster hardware, putting a soft, breathable layer between you and your firearm.

Enhanced Flexibility


With its single mounting point, the all-new IWB holster base offers a wider range of flex and improved comfort. Its design requires zero break-in time, so you can carry comfortably from the beginning.

Adjustable Clips – Zero Hardware


With its hassle-free design, you can relocate your holster clips by hand. The improved holster belt clips require zero hardware, making it simple and easy to adjust your concealed carry holster’s cant and ride height.

Steel Core Holster Retention


The patent-protected design gives the ShapeShift an extra layer of retention and stability to the ShapeShift AIWB, Belt Slide and IWB concealed carry holsters. Embedded between the soft neoprene backer and durable thermo elastomer surface, this strip of steel serves as a flexible backbone to the entire gun holster.

Evolved Alien Skin Surface


The holster’s thermo elastomer surface combines durability with breathtaking aesthetics. This unique surface adds the perfect amount of drag to your gun draw. Feel it for yourself!

Ballistic Nylon


You need a pistol holster that can withstand the daily grind. That’s why we’ve inserted a layer of ballistic nylon into this modular concealed gun holster. This durable material reinforces the entire holster base.

Quick Release Paddle System


Taking your gun holster from your body to virtually any surface has never been easier. With one button press, you can detach your holster from the paddle holster belt attachment and transfer it to the ShapeShift Holster Mount in seconds.

All-new Thumb Release


Alien Gear Holsters is proud to introduce an all-new thumb release active retention device, which is exclusively compatible with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System. Feel free to attach it to your paddle holster along with the Adjustable Retention Unit! This makes the ShapeShift a full Level II retention holster, an Alien Gear Holsters first!

Cutting Edge Carry Technology

Enhanced Pistol Carry Safety


Our improved ShapeShift gun holsters include added gun safety features designed for your protection. Lock your firearm in place with a fully wrapped trigger guard area and an Adjustable Retention Unit. We also include a removable thumb release with every Starter Kit.

Made with Durable Parts


Each piece of the ShapeShift Gun / Firearm Holster Modular System is designed to withstand your toughest carry challenge. Our durable parts will stay strong when needed most. Each piece is manufactured with tough, premium engineered polymer and has been rigorously tested by carriers.

Improved Concealed Carry Comfort


The vented neoprene hybrid holster base allows the backer to breathe, circulating air and wicking away moisture while you carry. As this is the only point of contact for holster and the pistol, it is able to flex and conform to any body type, shape or contour like it was tailored for you.

Easy-to-Use Modular Holster System


Transition the ShapeShift from one carry holster to another with ease. All you need to is disconnect the holster shell from one backer and add it to the one you wish to use. That’s how easy it is to adapt and change from one carry form to another.

Enhanced Holster Concealment


The innovative trigger guard “half-shell” allows us to lower the profile of the ShapeShift IWB concealed carry holster configurations. The holster’s overall area has been drastically reduced as well, slimming the holster and making it far less intrusive than other IWB concealment designs.

Custom Holster Retention


You can adjust the ShapeShift gun holster retention for extra security and the draw you’ve always wished you had. The included Adjustable Retention Unit allows you to tighten or loosen the tension holding your holstered pistol to the exact setting you desire.



The ShapeShift Gun / Firearm Holster is a modular gun holster system that allows you to seamlessly switch between holster configurations, letting you use the concealed carry holster platform of your choice. It transitions in seconds, without the use of tools. The ShapeShift starter kit will allow you to carry your holster in the following configurations:

  • IWB Concealed Carry Holster
  • Appendix IWB Concealed Holster
  • Belt Slide OWB CCW Holster
  • OWB Paddle Holster
  • FREE Holster Mount
