Outside the waist band concealed carry can be tricky to get right, but The Alien Gear ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster is engineered by gun owners for gun owners. It's a modular, comfortable, adaptable system for everyday concealed carry. Comfort in this OWB holster is guaranteed by the backer, which rides high on the belt and close to the body for concealability. It's constructed with three crafted materials: a closed cell neoprene layer that wicks away moisture and sits against the body for cushion, an enclosed spring steel core for flexible structure and a front layer of high drag Alien Skin that sits against the gun with minimal impact on its finish. The holster rests close to the body, moving with and reacting to you comfortably throughout the day. Control passive retention for a tighter or looser draw by installing an included retention bar with no tools needed. The low-profile shell, and all the components holding it together, is made of injection-molded polymer — the same stuff used in handguns — and completely encapsulates the trigger guard and most of the slide. All parts are made in USA to stand the test of time, but if there's an issue with one of the components, Alien Gear will replace or repair it under our Forever Warranty. The ShapeShift belt slide holster can also be converted into any of the compatible, available ShapeShift holster systems, again without the need for any tools.
