Just received my gun belt from bullhidebelts.com . Not too stiff. Comfortable enough for every day wear.

What belt do you wear?

Have a few gunbelts, all purchased in 2000 or 2001.

For everyday use, it's a Dillon Precision belt (from 2000?). Finish all worn off and is becoming softer. Cinch it one hole more and it's still very servisable for carrying my G19, spare mag and cell phone.

Also have a Bulman belt and a Andy Artoonian belt, both used for dressier occasions.

My Beltman horsehide belt with the stiffener is awesome. Very high quality, and will last many years. They're not cheap, though. A belt that has surprised me is the 5.11 Tactical TDU 1.5" with the plastic buckle. I only gave $10 for it. The advantage to this belt is it allows you to tighten it to the exact place that is comfortable. Even with the holes spaced 3/4" apart on the Beltman belt, with certain clothes or weapon/holster combos it may end up just slightly too loose for my liking. A Crossbreed Supertuck-type holster with the 5.11 belt disappears under even a t-shirt for me, and is extremely comfortable.

Beltman horsehide what the best thing I ever did. I really want to order 2 more of them in different colors. I wear the one I have everyday and it looks almost brand new.

5.11 1.75" or Beltman 1.5" tapered Horsehide.

Either one can tote my largest carry gun, a P226 comfortably.

Comp Tac kydex reinforced contour belt, great belt. I will be getting a Beltman in the future.

I bought a Crossbreed belt and really like it. Since I do some leatherwork I also built one. I took a tooled belt and stitched it back to back with a blank. I can't imagine that one ever breaking down.

I have a Crossbreed belt that is bombproof.
I also have a Amish belt that I use. It's thinner than the CB, but still works fine. Might be a tad more comfortable because of the thickness.
I have a 5.11 belt that I replaced with the Amish belt. It was worth free...

I wear a 5 stitch Wilderness Frequent Flier belt with a Galco Stow N Go inside the waist band holster or I use a Kramer pocket holster.

Crossbreed belt is what I use. Bought it at the same time I bought the Super Tuck for convenience. Never a problem with it.

I have a CompTac Kydex reinforced contour belt too. I also have a Galco CB3 concealable contour belt (matches my Galco Concealable Belt Holster). Both are very nice and super sturdy.

The CompTac is sized for IWB use, however I use it for an everyday belt (no holster).

I was amazed at what a real gun belt does.

What is funny about my Galco setup is it is in Havana Brown and is S-W-E-E-T looking. Makes you want to show it off! But it is concealed when in use... :crying:

Usually my 1.5" Beltman bullhide belt. Occasionally my 1.5" Wilderness 5-stitch Frequent Flyer. The FF is OK, I prefer the Beltman.

Currently an Occidental Leather Belt or Wilderness FF CSM. Gonna give the Ares Ranger Belt a try though.

I just ordered a Beltman horsehide with the reinforcement.
I hope it's as good as some folks claim.

I currenty have a Milt Sparks belt that is over 7 years old.
I still works OK but since I wear it 24/7 it looks very worn.

Old thread, but I found it interesting. Is there anything wrong with a Bianchi 7202 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005PT20EK/) ?

I have several good gun belts.
Mostly DeSantis and Galco.
My favorite is a Galco SB5 Sport Belt.

I wear a beltman everyday, and just received two more in the mail. I am a little underwhelmed with the elephant belt, but love the others

I don't see Beltman on Amazon or eBay - got a link? I'm not looking for a tacticool belt, but I'm not a fan of leather, either. Something synthetic that's unobtrusive with a variety of clothing.

Wilderness 5 stitch . Good belt right price..cant see ever paying more than $50 for a belt.

Not a fan of the 5-stich, too floppy/saggy for my tastes. I consider the Ares Ranger to be at the bottom of my "acceptably stiff" scale. I love the Ranger, but would love it even more if it could be ordered with a stiffener insert.

The Wilderness Instructor CSM is stiff enough for my tastes.

The 5 stitch is more than sufficient. We issue them exclusively as the primary load bearing belt for SRT. I have severa 5 stitch, an ares ranger, and a wilderness with the insert. Nether the ranger nor the insert belt perform any better than the 5 stitch for gun/mags/phone/radio/cuffs. All those belts are 1.75". If I were wearing something narrower, it might be a different result entirely.

If I were dead broke, I might make do with a walmart belt. But they just don't compare functionally to an actual gunbelt.

What belt do you wear?

A walmart belt. Thick piece of leather with two sets of holes and the double buckle. Coming up on 8 years now. I think its about time to retire it and buy another. Served me well until now, all 10 or 15 bucks worth (can't remember anymore) of it.

You're right, a good belt is super important. :rofl:

I have a cheap 5.11 that works fine but it's a little long. Just got a Wilderness CSM and I think I'm really going to like it. It's stiff where it needs to be but very comfortable as well.
