This is true i dont need to read reviews i own both and the shape shift is huge compaird to earlier model
I have the Appendix (AIWB) AlienGear holster. I like it. I haven’t worked up the courage to wear it at the Appendix position yet. It is well made & comfortable.
You’re talking specifically the Shapeshift holsters. They make more than the shapeshift systems.
Across the board for all their holsters “poorly made, screws come out” is the biggest complaint.
I don’t have any shapeshift compatible firearms, but if I did, I probably still wouldn’t go with shapeshift simply because I’ve found the cloak tuck and cloak OWB to be the most comfortable, I like those so personal preference.
So again, I wasn’t speaking specifically about the Shapeshift system, you were. That’s where the miscommunication came in.
Welcome to the family @Wolfen and god bless you.
I found mine very comfortable. But too bulky, and difficult to remove and put on without taking pants off, or while sitting in a car. I’ve been using single clip kydex, and although less comfortable, I got used to it quickly.
As they say, we violently agree.
Not liking my holsters from a different company, for my revolver. Saw that Alien Gear came out with one for a revolver. If they make more models, in my caliber and or shoulder holsters for revolvers, I’ll definitely purchase, as I’ve read many good things about their holsters, particularly about their fit and comfort. Didn’t buy yet, the one time I called them, the rep was very professional and courteous. Can’t wait.
I got my Cloak Tuck 3.5 a few days before Christmas to replace the full-kydex holster that came with my Canik TP9 Elite SC. My 1st thought was “Boy, that thing is BIG!” It is rather wide (compared to my other holster), but it is also flexible and wraps around things (my hip) quite nicely. I use it to carry at the 4 o’clock position.
My Canik is much bigger than my wife’s Glock G43X, but the Cloak Tuck distributes the weight around the belt so it doesn’t sag in 1 spot. It also prevents the front and back sights from digging into by butt and back, which caused bruising and pain if I carried all day.
I think it is a very comfortable holster, and have no problems carrying all day … even when driving in my car for hours.
I did have 1 screw come loose, but that is because I hadn’t used locktite yet, as the instructions recommended.
I have the Shapeshift system. It’s not the most comfortable, but it’s adaptable and has a solution for just about every crazy mounting/concealment idea you can think of.
Welcome to the family @TKDBarry And you are blessed to be here.
Is it hot where you live? I like a minimal mount primarily due to the heat here in NC.
I am in SC. New to CC so have only used since October. I wore a t shirt over a tank top with no problems. I will have to see what happens this summer though.
I will say I wore it while doing yard work and sweating and it didn’t bother me.
I’m in Ohio, so I haven’t had any major heat to contend with yet – a couple days around 70, wearing shorts & light T-shirt. It did not get uncomfortable, even though I did some activities where I was sweating. The ventilated neoprene back does a pretty good job. Summer-time will tell, when we get that 80 - 90+ degrees, with high humidity.
