Alien Gear Holsters has engineered a new slimmer, safer and more comfortable polymer pocket holster. 

The Alien Gear ShapeShift Pocket Holster is designed to reduce bulk with a light profile and included full trigger guard coverage with adjustable passive retention. It can be worn in the pockets of most apparel, handbags and backpacks.

The patent-pending holster was designed with a dual-purpose pocket hook that keeps the holster attached to the pocket when drawn, and disguises the handgun to reduce printing while carrying. 

Alien Gear Holsters mechanical engineer and lead designer Taylor Vold said holster may seem like a simple product, however, every detail and aspect has been considered to create an effective and safe holster. 

Vold designed the holster shell with a proprietary polymer blend to completely envelope the trigger and eliminate negligent discharge.

As the ShapeShift Modular Holster System’s 12th addition, this holster is fully compatible with other ShapeShift holsters.

Purchase the full holster for $45.88, or with a previously owned ShapeShift shell, try the pocket holster expansion pack for only $29.88.
