Alien Gear ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster Specifications

Note: Does not fit 45 ACP variant of this firearm.

You can definitely find a Springfield XD IWB holster. It's not that hard. The problem, of course, if finding one that's comfortable. Leather doesn't always feel the best against the skin and let's be honest about something: most holsters for this pistol take up a lot of real estate inside the waistband.

After all, it's a full-size pistol! Of course an XD inside the waistband holster is going to be a bit bigger. It would be quite a design feat for an IWB holster for this make and model pistol to be reduced in size while still carrying comfortably and securely.

Alien Gear have just such an XD waistband holster for you. The ShapeShift 4.0 IWB has been designed from the ground up for exactly these attributes.

Here's how: The new ShapeShift shell system anchors securely to just one point on the holster, instead of four, and without sacrificing retention. Granted, the carrier's belt is also important in retention, but the point is this holster doesn't need as many anchoring points.

Why is that important? Because it's allowed us to reduce the overall footprint of the holster backer by more than 25 percent compared to our other XD concealed carry holster designs. The result is a full-size pistol holster that carries like one for a compact.

However, unlike XD IWB holsters of lesser quality, comfort and retention aren't things you'll have to compromise on.

For comfort, the backer is an improved multi-layer design similar to our Cloak Tuck 3.0 holster. However, the neoprene is Alien Gear's new Cool Vent neoprene, a perforated neoprene backlayer that wicks sweat and breathes against the skin. The spring steel core flexes when the holster is fastened to your waist, anchoring to your precise shape and moving with you when you do.

You also don't have to worry about retention, as the Adjustable Retention Unit of the ShapeShift 4.0 IWB holster lets you dial it to your precise desired setting.

Sound too good to be true? Alien Gear will give you a month after purchase to wear the holster and make up your mind. If you find it isn't to your satisfaction, contact Alien Gear and Alien Gear will buy it back. That's part of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, which also happens to include a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty. Alien Gear will fix any issue or replace the holster.

It's time to shift to a better carry.
