They have a great return policy. So if you’re interested then try it. I have the shape shift and no complaints.
i forgot about that! isnt their return policy like a month or 100 days or something along those lines?

I have the AG ShapeShifter core carry pack. I liked it enough to buy another shell for my Glock 19 and 26. I mostly use IWB and OWB. I haven't tried the appendix holster. I used the holster mount in my truck and ordered a couple more for some hidden spots around the house. I like it because it is versatile, adjustable retention, and the IWB feels comfortable.

I say give it a try, if you don't like it you have 30 days to return it.

I personally find that StealthGearUSA holsters are far more comfortable and built better than the Aliengears. I had the Cloak Tuck 2.0 from Aliengear a while back, and I wasn't impressed. Neoprene is a closed cell foam, meaning it won't wick away sweat. It'll just create a moist spot between your skin and holster. I believe they did something to mitigate that in the newer version, but to me, neoprene is still neoprene. The gun-side of the holster backing looks like it would wear out after a year of use. In fact, after a month of usage for me for the 2.0, it looked like a wreck. I think they improved that with the newer version, but I haven't tried it, so I can't say either way. StealthGear's holster is more robustly made than the 2.0, better formed, uses truly breathable materials, and has the same levels of adjustment as the Aliengear holsters. I believe it's worth the extra money for one.

But then, that's just me. There's a reason everyone has drawers full of holsters. There's no such thing as a single perfect holster that everyone loves. Try it out. If you don't like it, return it. If you can't return it, stick it in a drawer. Holsters are a pretty subjective topic.

I've used the AlienGear Shapeshift for about a year and have no complaints. :clapping: I am waiting for them to make a shell for a new pistol I bought a couple months ago.

Thank you for your advice. I ordered the kit today. Ltc is showing to be mailed. Looking forward to trying out the new holster. I'll post what I think about it

I was in your boat back in August, new LTC holder, and I went with AG 4.0 shapeshifter.
Glad I did. I see people make comments about this and that, and in the end, it was what felt good to me.
I like their IWB and OWB options the best. Appendix style don't care for it, and the paddle sticks out too far for my taste.
But its solid never had an issue, and knowing that *click* sound keeps it retained, I'm a happy customer.
Another one I rock when I want to dress nicely is the Versacarry OWB https://www.versacarry.com/decree-series/
Wow, great suggestion on Versacarry. Nice looking stuff. And right now, 45% off Black Friday promo on a bunch of items including the Decree Series.

I've been using the Shapeshifter Ankle holster for most of the year with my Walther PPS. Love it and have had 0 issues.

I just returned my ShapeShift 4.0 core pack today. I found the thumb release spongy and unreliable. It could have been a retention adjustment issue, but I wasn’t wild about it.

Ordered a Tucker DC-1 today to take its place.

I do have the AlienGear Belly Band and Closk IWB to try out for my K6S. Hopefully I’ll like that rig.
