I just ordered a crossbreed gun belt, waiting for it to show up

I wear a Bianchi (http://www.bianchi-intl.com/product/Prod.php?TxtModelID=B28) belt to hold a G30 in its holster. It works well. Way better than a regular belt. But I can't compare it with any other gun belt. Yet!

I recently ordered another from Bullhide Belts (http://www.bullhidebelts.com/Rich-Brown-Stitched-Bullhide-Dress-Leather-Belt_p_37.html). It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't really say anything about it. The "double leather strip" thing looks more robust, but that just may be marketing hype. I'll know better when I get it.

Anyway, this is what I've got going on. Can't really make a recommendation until I can make some kind of a comparison. And even that's only one man's opinion.

I have a bullhide belt.
I got it last fall (I think).

It is very nice and makes EDC stable.
One thing though it is thick, and if you used any cellphone holster on this belt, the belt is almost too thick.

Other than that, I am happy with it.

The next one may be a thinner belt for me.

Friend of mine just bought a Bullhide belt. Those are indeed stiff as heck, but they are thick as mentioned above. Great belt though.

I use a 5.11 Operator 1.75inch belt... As long as you get a quality belt it really doesn't matter which brand you get. Just don't cheap out and get crap.

The important thing is to get an actual gunbelt, not a stiff regular belt. Wilderness is about as good as it gets for casual wear.

http://agcustomgunleather.com/ for me. Al makes a fantastic belt and will make it in pretty much any way that you'd like. I wanted something that was stiff enough to easily support my 5" 1911, a spare mag, a flashlight, and a Leatherman tool. I ended up with a double bullhide belt with a nylon liner and double stitching. This thing is PERFECT! Give Al a call, tell him your needs, and he's sure to come up with a belt that will work for you just as well.

I have seen the Atlas belt before. It looks similar to the Ares belt but I don't see how that buckle on the Atlas has much adjustability.

I prefer the cobra buckle on the Ares for speed and ease of use. Set it and forget it. The Atlas looks like you have to hook it on/off or re-thread it every time you want to take off your pants

Volund Gearworks Atlas Belt. JRC or The Beltman for leather.
Untill you try an Atlas belt. Sold my Wilderness and Ares after getting my first. Currently have two of them.

For the last decade, I've worn Wilderness belts almost exclusively. The Ares Ranger belt set a new standard in stiffness, and it made me a believer, but, because of the (too-large) size of the Cobra buckle and the relative ease-of-use of the Wilderness belt, Wilderness belts remain in my daily-wear mix. The Volund Atlas' buckle and closure is very different, and I was skeptical of it's utility, but - once tried - it immediately won me over. It is fast to don, adequately stiff for the purpose, totally silent, easy to drop-trou, and totally comfortable.

As of today, if I had to choose only one belt, the Volund Gearworks' Atlas (http://www.volundgearworks.com/) belt would be my first choice.

Another vote for the bull hide belt. I considered a Beltman, but the high cost steered me to bull hide. Very happy with mine. Supports my G23 in a Raven Concealment Phantom, and backup magazine no problem. Nice buckle, that is changeable is a bonus!

My black Beltman belt is over ten years old and I carried everyday with it. The belt is just like it was when new. Great belts. My brown one is to replace my black one when it gives out. The brown one is 5 years old now and hasn't been on yet.

They last forever. Good quality. I wear it with a 4" .357 Magnum and it's like the gun isn't even there.

I have a wilderness csm (extra stiffener inside) belt and a leather belt (with velcro lining) from thebeltman.net

They are both good belts for different needs. I wear the wilderness belt 363 days a year I think. I wear the leather belt only when I need to tuck a shirt in and carry a firearm.

I got both belts in 1.5" because that was more universal sized for different belt loops I have. Most all my trousers would fit 1.75" belts except a few pairs and I've probably weeded those all out by now. The problem is the holster I wear 98% of the time is the Galco "concealable Belt holster" and only has 1.5" slots. I'm sure I could find something to replace it, but i like the flat back design and the 20 degree cant.

Do not skimp on holsters or belts. Buy right and buy once. I don't know what you're carrying, but the heavier the gun the more important the belt is going to be. Obviously the needs of a full size 1911 are different from the needs of a Ruger LCP

There are lot of belts out there that claim to be gun belts, but if they're just thin flimsy stuff they aren't going to support things any better than a regular belt. You'll end up with twisting and sagging.

I'm a BIG believer in using a proper belt. I've done the Walmart thing. For those of you on a budget, 5.11 makes a very stiff nylon gun belt for $20. It's reversible too. The one holding my G27 right now is black on one side, FDE on the other. A great belt that won't break you.

I presently own 4 Gunbelts. Two G. Wm. Davis (The exact same belt that Jeff Cooper used to wear.), one Wm. Tucker (A beautiful tooled belt), and a plain black dress belt from The Beltman. Here's what to keep in mind BEFORE you order your next gun belt:

Best of the "cheap" belts:
Aker B21
Wilderness Instructor Belt w/CSM option

Best leather belt:
Reinforced horsehide belt from thebeltman.net

Best nylon belt:
PALS Enhanced Ranger Belt, from Ares Gear
(Any of the Ranger belts from Ares Gear are "best nylon belt" actually)



Belts to avoid:
Reinforced leather belts from 5.11 (I'd actually avoid any 5.11 belt, there are far better options for the money)
ANY "single ply" belt. Does not matter if it is leather or nylon, a good gun belt will never be made "single thickness" or "single ply". The one and only exception to this might be the Liger belt from Maxpedition (and I would still take any of the belts I listed above over the Liger).

I wear an Ares gun belt. I'm a skinny guy and for a few years I just used a normal belt and put up with feeling uncomfy and dreading wearing my gun *but I always did*. Finally decided to just drop a chunk of change on a belt and now... All day, every day. No worries at all. No synching my belt as tight as my body will allow, no sag, no droopy drawers. It's awesome. Get one.

I carry a gen4 G27 in a blackhawk serpa...it is now fully supported and i don't feel it on my waist at all...

Like many of the others, I have several belts from different makers. Jim at Beltman makes a very good belt but a relatively new entry into the "gunbelt" market is a guy named Jerry Bissell. I think his website is Bissell Leather. He is located in Mt. Airy, N.C. Makes an excellent belt in a very timely fashion and is less expensive than most of the other leather belts.

Whoever you buy from, I suggest getting the "7 hole option" with the holes closer together to ease "proper fit".

It is way too loose.When I got my Bianci belt, I was impressed. But when I got another belt (last week?) from Bullhide Belts, I was shocked at the difference (Bianci, step aside). I mean, the difference is dramatic! With the Bullhide Belts belt, my holster doesn't move at all. It's rock-solid! I never imagined a belt/holster could be this solid.

Bianci makes some great holsters, but now that I've seen such a difference, I'm not as impressed with their belts.

Bottom line: a solid gun belt makes a world of difference.

I am new to this forum (first post) as well as new to carrying with a belt (caried inside pocket with a kel-tec .32 for several years). My first gun belt is a Blade-Tech black leather ($50 at my LGS) with a strip of kydex in between two strips of leather to go along with my first Glock (Gen 4 26) carried in a Blackhawk Serpa holster. All I can say is what an unbelievable difference a solid gun belt makes. My pants finally stay in place. My pants would even slip a bit with a regular belt when I carried my Kel-Tec in my pocket but they were falling down with my new Glock. I am definitely convinced on the importance of a good gun belt. Now I just need a solid IWB holster. I'm leaning toward an Old Faithful mainly from the good things I've read about them here on GT and the fact that $40 for a decent holster sounds god to me. :dunno:

Welcome to GT! Yeah, I was stunned at the difference a solid gun belt makes.

Old Faithful looks like a nice holster. One thing I prefer about my MTAC is the rear lining -- it covers the hardware so there's nothing but leather against the body. Just a personal thing, I guess.

Again, welcome aboard!

Does anybody besides me wear suspenders with a gun belt? How is it working for you?

I have the 5.11 belts that came with some pants and even though they have a stiffener insert the suspenders lifts the bottom of the belt away from the pants. To stop that I have to cinch it up too tight for comfort.

Yes, the 2" Ruf-N-Tuff model. I have very narrow hips so the suspenders carry most of the gun weight - Glock 30 with 10rd mag. The belt twists in the back and sags on the gun side. Want to know if the Beltman belt will fix this (or anything else). I can't afford to gamble and his return policy doesn't look very promising.

I see a lot of recommendations for this belt on here. Is the kydex insert necessary to add on or are the belts strong enough without it? The insert makes my Blade-Tech very stiff.

You will not need the inserts. I carry a G23 in a X-Concealment holster that rides high. The belt is PLENTY stiff without the inserts.

I carry a G30 in an MTAC with a Bullhide Belts (http://www.bullhidebelts.com/) gun belt. No twist or sag -- it's SOLID.

And their return policy is what you'd want. If it doesn't work for you, return it.

ANY belt that sags or twists is NOT a quality gun belt. My Aker B21 carries the weight of a XD-45 & spare mag (and my flashlight & phone) without any sagging or twisting...it doesn't even need to be on a body. A quality belt DOES NOT SAG...PERIOD.

Wilderness CSM.

I like that they're easy to adjust while wearing.
I am awaiting delivery of my 7th Beltman belt. I will wear no other leather belt with, or without a gun.

I bought the nylon belt out of curiosity more than anything. I was going to buy a 5.11 but was steered away from this Chinese product to the American made Wilderness CSM by knowledgeable members here. Glad they did. If you want nylon, spend the extra few bucks on Wilderness.

Quality is value. Buy the best from the start and you will achieve economy. You've heard it here before but I'll say it again, you cannot go wrong with either of these brands.

Currently wear a ares ranger belt everyday. I just ordered a bullhide quick ship from belt man. It will be nice to just go back to using my ares for comp and range use.

I just ordered a crossbreed gun belt, waiting for it to show up

I love mine (I've had it 3 years)... just a heads up...I ordered it 7" longer size than my day to day run around in jeans belt... and it was the right size for its use! I hope you got it bigger than your normal waste size to make it function well.

Post up when it comes!

I use a Tucker gun leather belt, and a Beltman's belt.
I much prefer the Tucker, it is just more supple even with a stiffner

Which model of Tucker's belts do you have? Tapered, Ranger, Latigo Canyon, or the Tucker model? And by your post, I'm assuming you got it with the stiffener? Trying to make a decision for a new belt to repace my Blade Tech Looper. I'm actually leaning toward the Beltman Bullhide.

Two belts by Milt Sparks. One in black (my dress belt) the other in brown (the one I am wearing right now). Just got the brown one back from the shoe place because after almost 20 years some of the stitching was coming out. This is daily wear for those 20 years so I think the quality is pretty good.

I think it is just a Tucker (I bought it 10 years ago still looks new)

Got one from The Beltman a few years back. Highly recommended. A little pricey, but your getting a quality product.

Wilderness Tactical - Best belt out there

Wore mine today and always remark to myself "that's a good belt" when I put it on and take it off! :wavey:

whats up with these two websites? which one is the "knockoff"?

https://www.daltechforce.com/

http://www.bullhidebelts.com/

They have the same products it looks like, the same bull icon, the same sizing image except that daltechforce has a lifetime warranty instead of 3 years and has cheaper prices, with bullhidebelts' prices crossed out.

I'm obviously leaning towards daltech.... :dunno: anyone have comments?

They sure LOOK the same. I'm glad you posted this. I've been thinking about getting another belt from BullhideBelts -- I'm REALLY happy with the one I have -- but now I think I'll try the DaltecForce.

Thanks!!!

I only use two kinds of gunbelts. Wilderness 5 stitch and my leather Delfatti that I have had for more than 10 years.

Just received my 7th Beltman belt, a beautiful black reinforced 1.25" for my dress slacks. Keep up the good work Jim!

Thank you RVPG! you are the one who originally posted that site, did you forget? :supergrin:

my email to daltechforce.com:

Hello,

I am interested in purchasing a belt. I have also been looking at another website:

www.bullhidebelts.com

It seems like the products are identical, even the bull icon is identical! But the prices here are cheaper. Is this the consumer alert you mention in the "about us" section on this website?

Thank you.

and the reply from the owner of daltech...

Bullhidebelts.com is our sister site and you are welcome to purchase from there if you can't find what you want on Daltechforce.com. Daltech is geared to the gun owner. The consumer alert was for another couple sites that were stealing our photos and said they sold BULLBELTS. Sorry for the confusion and if you have other questions please ask. I look forward to receiving your order.


pretty quick reply, and like said before the products look identical and $20+ cheaper so i'll be ordering!

Well, at my age, they say... the memory is the second thing to go. (I forget what the first is.) I had seen the site, and it looked pretty interesting, but I had already received my BullhideBelts belt and so I didn't pay real close attention. Then, since I was so happy with it, I considered getting another. When I saw your post I got more interested.

If they're brother and sister sites selling the same products, it's a no-brainer! So... thanks! I'll be ordering one from Daltech soon. It's WAY better than my Bianci belt and it's hard to imagine anything more stiff and solid on the hip. My holster is rock solid!
