With my old Carhart belt which I thought was pretty stiff, I had to have it tourniquet tight to keep my pants up with a gun on. This also stretched the belt out when I started carrying. Not to mention the grip leaning out even in an IWB.
Problem solved! The Bladetech has a Kydex layer in between two layers of leather. This thing is stiff. If I run out of ammo I could probably beat the crap out of a thug with it
