    I know its not going to be something that a lot of people use currently, as they have all probably moved on to bigger and better things, but I use the Cabelas Double Duty belt. Its a step above and beyond a normal off the shelf belt, and for the price, I felt it was a good choice for me. It may not be very pretty or stylish, but its all personal preference as far as that goes. If you had to save for your holster/gun, and don't have lots of money left over, they are a great choice to tide you over while you research and save.

    I have never used a really high quality gun belt, so I can't say how it stacks up, but I can tell it definitely makes a difference from my normal Wal-Mart belts. I'm looking forward to the day I can give a good review of a Beltman.

    I have a Black Hawk instructors belt that is reinforced and quite stiff.

    Buy very comfy!

    I use the Cabela's Double Duty. It works fine. It is not as good quality as most of the others, I'm sure, but the advantage is that I got to go to the store and touch it and find the right color and try it on. No guess work. I also got it on sale for $25. Do it, and buy some ammo with the money you save.

    I prefer the Wilderness belts; I have three of them in both Instructor and Frequent Flyer variations (in 5 stich and polymer-lined).

    While I love good leather, the infinite adjustment of the Wilderness-type belts (no "its too tight this hole and a bit too loose the next hole" kinda thing) combined with all thier other features wins every time for me.

    Wilderness Instructor 1.5/5 Stitch is a Winner! I use it to OWB G19 with no problems.

    I have a Beltman 1.5 Horsehide and the Wilderness and for me, the Wilderness is more comfortable. I've never worn my Beltman since getting it. Maybe I didn't give the Beltman enough chance (Only used it about 10 times), but I found it to be uncomfortable and was quickly looking for something else.

    I have the 1-1/4" wilderness ring belt with the polymer lining. Stiff enough for whatever you want to hang from it. I've become accustomed to using it even when not carrying.
    Great belt.

    Not that all these belts mentioned aren't great belts, just figured I would chime in and say the crossbreed belt is a excellent leather belt. IMO equal to beltman belts for less cash. Very thick and rigid.

    I have the cabelas double duty.

    Its a few months old of daily carry and is still stiff enough to hold my pants with wallet, cell, keys, pocket change, lighter, knife, and whatever else, straight out as if I were wearing it. Probably about 4lbs of stuff there no issue

    That said I am also thinking about getting the 5 stitch instructors belt as it seems like a nice option to have when I dont have to tuck my shirt

    If you replace the buckle with a nice roller one, the Cabelas double belt works very well. I alternate it with a double thick one I made myself.

    Same here, I like that I was able to try it on before buying. Its nothing fancy, but does the job and I like it.

    Depending on their current load it takes anywhere from 5 days - 2 weeks. My experience as well as many others is about 5 days. They just say 2 weeks because sometimes stuff happens and they want some wiggle room.
