Slim subcompacts like the Springfield XDs 3.3 are the easiest to carry, but it isn't easy to find the perfect XDs IWB holster to carry one with. A lot of holsters out there are enormous, promising comfort but only delivering bulk and awkwardness when you try to put them on.
Many others don't offer adjustable retention or even a good, secure fit. It really isn't easy to find a quality carry holster.
But why continue to settle for one that's "good enough?" You CAN have a Springfield XDs subcompact IWB concealed carry holster that's comfortable without being bulky, conceals easily and offers superior fit and retention without having to put up with the lead time, expense and pain of dealing with a custom holster shop.
You merely need to seek out the ShapeShift. Alien Gear Holsters designed this holster to address every failing of the common IWB hybrid holster. You will feel the difference.
Start with the shell. The secret to the ShapeShift is the shell design, which fully wraps the trigger guard. This has allowed them to slim down the backer in all dimensions without compromising fit, retention or comfort in any way. The shell can adjusted for cant, and retention is completely customizable with the Adjustable Retention Unit installed. Dial in the draw you want.
The holster backer has been streamlined, but has the features Alien Gear is known for. The backer is our improved Cool Vent neoprene, which is perforated to let your skin breathe and moisture-wicking for improved comfort. The ballistic nylon and spring steel core give the holster a firm but flexible spine and ensure a long service life. The improved Alien Skin surface helps hold the pistol but doesn't impact the finish at all.
The belt clips can also be adjusted for ride height and cant, and without the use of tools.
In short, it's the next stage of evolution of IWB holster design.
However, they understand that you may not be completely convinced. That's why part of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee is a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period, during which you can return a holster for a full refund if unsatisfied.
Should you decide to keep your holster - and we think you won't want to take it off - you can rest easy knowing that they also give you a comprehensive lifetime warranty on the holster. So long as you own it, they will fix any issue or send you a brand new one.
Are you ready for a better way to carry?
