Default Best Concealed Carry Belts

As the title states, what is your favorite belt for concealed carry? Guess it can be for open carry as well. I searched the topic, but couldnít find any threads about it, so I figured it would helpful to have one.
I prefer a leather belt, but feel free to post nylon and others as well.

I've been wearing an Ares Aegis belt everyday for 5 years and it is still awesome. buckle system is stupid easy on and off and allows for infinite adjustment.

If you want a leather belt, Mean Gene Leather makes on with the Aegis buckle. It is pricey though.

Hank's Belts get great reviews for a reasonably priced leather option.

I’ve got a Bigfoot that is pretty good. It’s the only one I’ve tried, so I don’t have anything to really compare it to other than a regular belt.

I have been wearing a Bigfoot for about 2 years now. Really like it, and it is holding up very well. I use it with a Crossbreed Supertuck.

I have a DM bullard double thick gun belt.

That i wear every day. After i broke it in every other belt just feels like its loose.

I also like it because when i undo it to Pee it doesnt flop over and try to dump my gun out sideways. U know its the little things in life.

My belt came from Amazon. It has a thin steel liner in it and so far itís been about the best one Iíve ever owned. Canít tell you the name but im sure an Amazon search would turn it up. Probably this one.

I've been wearing the same Galco day in and day out for the last 10 years. It holds up a Glock 17 just fine.
I got the belt from Midway.

I switch between a Tucker Gunleather belt that I had made and a Ares Gear Ranger belt. Both have been great and the Ares belt is going on 9 years.

Used my American Eagle or Carhartt belt since I started carrying in college. I have always been under the impression a thick belt will do the job. I pack a commander size colt 45 with a alien gear holster.

In the case of Nylon ones, I love the strong grip of Nexbelt but leather ones also sound like a good option. Another option is Hanks Gunner because they can easily fit at any standard belt loop. To carry all of my hunting tools like guns, scopes and knives etc, I prefer to go with leather tool belts. Yes, they could be a good option in case of carrying more tools.



Similarly, High-Speed Gear Rigger Belt is also a long-lasting option. Yes, I am a fan of its durability. With the Cobra buckle feature, it is very easy to remove this belt.

I use a typical leather belt from (I think) Old Navy with my Muddy River Tactical IWB.
I have a couple of webbing belts as well that don't seem to work as well since they're not as stiff.

This is what I wear. I bought it initially for its rigidity when carrying my 5.5” Bisley Blackhawk in the woods. That revolver weighs 46 oz empty, and it’s done a great job keeping it in place. No flopping or sagging. I’ve since started wearing it everyday, regardless of what I’m carrying. It’s a thick belt, 1/4” I believe, so I would check the hardware on your holster to make sure it will accommodate. Overall very happy with it, and the customer service is great.
