    I own eight Galco gun belts. I wear them all.

    I know eight sounds like a lot, but I like to match the color and style to what I am wearing.

    One of the advantages of Galco is selection. Thre colors and 12 styles.

    The key to a good gun belt is that they are made of thicker leather than the average off the rack belt. When you pick one, and there are many good ones out there and compare to what you have been wearing you will immediately see and feel the difference. Also you want it wide enough to accommodate the clips on your holster. You don't want the belt so thin that the holster slips around.

    I have a Beltman Horsehide 1.5 and a Wilderness Instructor 1.5 / 5 Stitch. I like the Wilderness better, it is more comfortable.

    I picked mine up at the local LEO/Security supply store. Paid $30, wearing it for 2 years now. Looks like a plain Jane 1.5" leather belt. Stiff and still holding it's shape (no sagging points). Picked up a 1" dress belt for those rare occasions I need to wear slacks.

    A quality leather belt for carrying a gun will be 2 layers of leather stitched together cross grain. As previously mentioned, this is like plywood in that the crossed grain of the 2 pieces of leather will keep either layer from stretching or sagging. There are reports of these belts being worn daily for 5 years with no sag or stretch.

    Some of the belt makers are stitching a kydex or similar plastic strip between the 2 layers of leather for additional stiffness.

    Some beltmakers will stitch velcro on the inside of the double layered belt for use with IWB holsters that have velcro V clips, such as the Cross Breed SuperTuck holsters and belts.

    CrossBreed makes a high quality belt. The Belt Man has rave reviews of his work as well. I bought a belt from a local leather shop for a lower price and it is a good quality, although not quite as nice as my CrossBreed belt.

    Depending on what you want out of your belt, you can buy one for as little as $35 or over $150. My personal dream belt is from The Belt Man. Natural Gray Elephant belt. It's a bit beyond my finances right now.

    You can also buy a synthetic belt such as the 5.11 tactical belt. They come with good reviews also.

    I have a 1.25" Beltman belt. It has the horsehide exterior and the velcro is sewn to the inside.

    Last week, a friend at work was complaining that his MTAC sagged and was uncomfortable. I let him borrow my Beltman belt to try out for a day. That one day, I wore a regular belt with my MTAC and I could really tell a difference!!!! I kept having to pull my pants up and it was really uncomfortable. Needless to say, he ordered a Beltman belt the next day.

    This is a pic of the Beltman belt with my K&D Thunderbird Defender holster. Notice how stiff the belt is.

    I was lucky to find a reversable 1 1/2" belt at a men's store that is double thickness and has lasted for 2 years now. That's the only belt I've found in a store that is adequate as a gunbelt.
    I have a Wilderness Instructor, 1 1/2", 5 stitch on order and a true double leather gunbelt coming as part of a package from Little Bear Holsters in Jacksonville.
