Holy Cow ladies and gents - such much! :shock:

Not only are there some fantastic recommendations here, but a couple of them are less expensive than the last leather belt I got a Academy. Thank you very much!

Oh, there's a belt in that picture? I didn't notice.

I was surprised by the recommendations for belts that don't have some sort of core. I've been wearing a 3/16 inch thick new leather belt and a G17 in the el-cheapo Glock holster for practice. There wasn't much vertical movement when drawing when the belt was new, but 8 or so months later it's challenging to get the gun out of the holster. The belt/holster travels at least four inches before starting to pull back. Yeah, that's not gonna work. ;)

It looks like this process will result in owning a number of belts to go with the holster collection. That'll probably lead to expanding the pistol collection and that leads directly to dancing. Heaven help us. :lol:

Hank's belt AKA Amish belt. Quick Google search should bring up the relevant info.

You can find the Amish belt on eBay too. Purchased my last one there.

I have a couple belts from Beltman:

https://www.thebeltman.net/

Fairly customizable. They offer several widths, colors, leather types, buckle types, and you can get internal stiffeners or velcro added. Good stuff and it looks like a normal belt rather than something that screams "tactical."

When I'm in a free state I've been seen wearing a rig like this in a darker color.

If your going to open carry why not look good doing it.


P.s. I didn't buy it to open carry but for Wild Bunch matchs.i also own their dress belts and a couple CCW holsters. Very happy with fit and finish.

I picked up this belt with the stiffener from him a year ago, and it has been my daily wear even when I am not carrying. Very durable and well worth it.

Hey! I like these. I'm definitely going to give one these a go when the time comes.
I just ordered a VEGAN canvas belt from Mission in Desert tan to match my new M&P M2.0 in FDE.

Whichever the belt, my no assatall self needs suspenders if I'm packing anything more than a single-stack 9mm. I prefer Perry as they have hooks instead of clips, which don't jack up nicely finished belts.

Also, I'd like to belt solicit recommends from other no assatall sufferers.

Relentless Tactical has some nice and affordable options. Depending on size and weight of your EDC (no not that one) there are a few options. They look good and hold up nicely. I purchased a factory second for a discount (to see if I liked the product) and couldn't find the "defect" in the leather texture anywhere. Stand up folks and fast shipping too.

...and I have to say, after using a Blade-Tech as my every day belt, with and without an IWB G19, and with both a Thanksgiving and Christmas er...under the belt, so to speak, that the ratcheting buckle thing is a winner! :lol:

I'll second that emotion. Extremely satisfied with the two I bought as a result of the post link you made before your last post here. Unfortunately, I went back to that thread to view, forgetting it had a photo that took weeks of eye bleach to forget!! :mrgreen:

've gradually moved over to pretty much only wearing belts that can do double duty, normal belt, and carry belt if needed. I find that these better quality belts last so much longer and are more versatile.

I think if one were to buy one really good quality belt ($50-100), they would save a lot of money over their life, from having to purchase so many cheaper $10-$20 belts that only last a year or less.

My EDC belt (I carry all day/every day) is a Wilderness Tactical Frequent Flyer belt. Basically heavy/thick/wide nylon with Delrin rings for a buckle and velcro to keep the tongue locked down. I was worried it screamed "Gun Belt!!" but I wear it even with semi dressy attire and it really looks great. Not to mention it really makes carrying AIWB easy.

It's the only gun belt I have and it's the only one I have needed so far. My Wife wears it as well.
