    Can anyone recommend a good but fairly priced gun belt? Looking for something nice but no more than 50 dollars, the cheaper the better but I don't want to cheap on quality to much. Thanks in advance.

    I wear a Safariland 2.25" nylon duty belt. I've been wearing the same one for 6 years now and it still looks new.

    For my tactical pants I wear a blackhawk riggers belt, for my jeans, I have a double thick $12 faded glory belt from Wally world, and my dress belt is a two sided leather/nylon reversible belt by victorinox I got from target. They do the job well I might add. Really rigid when they need to be and they look great!

    I wear a 5.11 belt. Works great, better than all those pleather belts ive used.
     
  5. I've never tried the standard "three stitch" belts so I can't say how stiff they are. All I've tried are the "five stitch" which is a option but is free right now. Also they offer CSM{polymer lined} and I can't imagine how stiff that would be. The five stitch works fine for all my needs. I wear the 1.75" all day every day even at work and I do a lot of bending, squatting and weird contortionists maneuvers at work.

  7. Yea i think its a bit cheesey but the quality and function is great. If he was limited on budget you cant beat a quality leather belt

    If you want a leather belt, go to Opticsplanet.com and look at the Blackhawk CQC belts. They have certain sizes/styles on sale for $20. I just bought one a couple of months ago. Seems every bit as good as my 5.11 leather belts and I swear by those.


    I bought a 1.75" for my first belt, but all of my holsters were 1.5 and so were my jeans, so I had to return it and get a 1.5. I'm guessing you haven't had this problem?

    I haven't used the Wilderness belt, but I've used a similar 5.11 belt with the stiffener. They work well.
     
  9. Mike makes his own holsters, I think thats the big difference
     
  10. I prefer the 1.75 for the ability to hold the weapon even more upright with no chance of sag or leaning out that sometimes happens with larger/heavier weapons using a 1.5. Also all of my pants, shorts, jeans or other wise accept 1.75 with no problem.

    I like this belt and would have ordered one already but I see no guidelines on how to choose your size! They have sizes Small-4XL but no way to help you in choosing which size you need. Anybody have any info on how to accurately choose?
