Alien Gear Holsters renamed their ﬂagship product to more accurately describe why it exists and who it’s for.
Part of the ShapeShift Modular Holster System, the ShapeShift Starter Kit is now known as the ShapeShift Core Carry Pack to better explain that the product includes the most popular, essential everyday carry styles within the growing modular holster system.
The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack includes a single polymer shell that is conﬁgured into four separately designed open and concealed carry styles on the beltline.
“The change was heavily inﬂuenced by customer feedback. There were questions about who the ‘Starter Kit’ was for and whether it had to be the ﬁrst purchase in the ShapeShift Modular Holster System,” Alien Gear Holsters COO Tim Treto said. “The four carry styles in the Core Carry Pack represent our most popularly requested holsters from all gun owners at all experience levels, which spurred the need for a name change in a system offering so many possibilities.”
The name change is the only alteration. It includes the same product at the same price with the same lifetime warranty.
“It’s similar to another recent change: our active retention thumb release,” Treto said. “As the product line was further developed, all aspects of it are continually revisited. These design and product changes take immense time and resources, but the outcome means we’re developing unprecedented holsters based on community feedback.”
Alien Gear Holsters is continually in the process of designing further holster iterations to expand and further develop the entire system, while a separate effort concurrently runs to increase the shell compatibility for additional guns in the ShapeShift Modular Holster System.
