Alien Gear Holsters became a leader in holster innovation by aggressively pursuing new designs and materials to enhance comfort, retention and versatility. The company is at it again with its ShapeShift Modular Holster System. Just unveiled, details are still a bit scarce, but the idea is to make a single holster compatible with a wide range of carry platforms thanks to a tool-less interface system. The holster quickly transforms to accommodate a range of carry techniques, including appendix and traditional IWB, paddle and belt-slide OWB, as well as ankle and pocket carry. The holster locks into a shoulder harness or a drop-leg rig, and hooks onto MOLLE webbing. The user’s imagination may be the only limit to how the ShapeShift system might be employed. aliengearholsters.com
