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?
+1 for The Beltman

I have a belt from crossbreed. I think it's great.

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.

Life is fragile and is what we make it. Keep dear to your heart that of your loved ones and fellow man and by God don't try to take it from me or my loved one's.
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.

I have others but 1.5" is a must.

+1 for the Beltman. Have 3. All are well made and wear well.
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.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
i just got a belt from crossbreed. it is double layered and has the velcro strip sewn in for the velcro clips on my holster. works great.
