    Belt for CCW

    In my last thread here, a lot of folks told me a good belt is key to successful concealed carry. My belt is old, and I've had to repair it a few times just from normal wear. I'm guessing not a good belt...

    So, what constitutes a "good" belt? Just something sturdy? Is this something I'm going to find in a gunshop or a JC Penny? What do you folks use?

    You're correct about a good belt making the carry much more comfortable. I've found these to be good for casual wear. I use the CSM Instructor belt which is the stiffest model and looks tactical, but it works with my profession. The 5-stitch is not quite so stiff but is recommended by most.

    Good quality and nice price.

    I like my kramerleather.com horsehide belt. The way it is going, it will last my whole life. Beltman appears to be excellent and a good value.

    +1 on the Crossbreed, though I haven't tried any others.

    I have one from The Beltman and a Wilderness Tactical 5-stitch. Like them both. I also have one from Looper with a kydex insert that works well.

    The belt is important depending on what you are going to load on to it. Almost all Holster manufacturers will recommend a 1.5" belt for their holster. I have a Bianchi #7200 at great price but it is 2.25" wide. It won't fit most jeans. I have several others, One I can recommend is the Galco Gunleather Instructor Belt.
    I have others but 1.5" is a must.

    The best gun belts are double-layered. This provides much more strength and durability because it works like plywood. One thick layer will quickly soften and stretch.
