I have never been impressed with the Safariland laminate belts that I have seen. The material is cheaper looking than some of the others. The Bianchi Accumold Elite, as stated, is better and is available in 2" and 2.25" widths. The only thing I don't like about the Bianchi stuff is that the Velcro backing is the opposite of what I am used to (they have loop on the duty belt and hook on the inner belt.
