Default We never talk about “belts” for our holsters...

When I first started carrying, I used regular dress belts...they sucked. Now days, I wear a 511 nylon belt...what does everyone else use?

I wear a double thickness leather gun belt. A good belt makes a hugh difference distributing weight.

Totally agree that a good belt makes wearing a holster much easier.

Wilderness Instructor Belt. Ugly green web belt, but it works. Everyday.

Added plus is that the buckle is climbing carabiner quality, so I use it for my deer stand tri-pod safety harness clip-in point.

Magpul has a whole line of leather and non leather belts that are lined with something to keep them rigid. They even have sharkskin. I just ordered a leather one for about $70.

Been wearing my crossbreed gun belt for at least 3 years now, every single day, barely shows any wear and is wonderful with a pistol on it, inside and outside waistband.

Good price. The Tucker belts are lined with something too. The one I got is brown leather like a dress belt with a nice buckle. Also Velcro on the inside all the way around for the ultimate concealment holsters. Have to check out that shark skin lol. I'd like a Cape buffalo one
