    I prefer double leather, double stitched. Check out Lobo Gun Leather. They make very reasonably priced belts in your range. I don't have one yet; I have a Beltman belt. But, I'm on the weight loss track and I'm going to need a couple more belts the more weight I loose, so Lobo looks like a more economical choice while I'm waiting for the resizing on my Beltman. Who knows, I might like the Lobo's better anyway.

    If you're not dead set of leather, then you may also want to take a look at the Wilderness Instructor Belt; I love my CSM (polymer lined) one, but a 5-stitch model is more than supportive enough for concealed carry though the 3-stitch I would not recommend for CC.

    I guess the price difference depends on your gut size-lol. That is totally cool of you. Good and unselfish people like you are far and few

    TO WhoWeBePart1:Sir,your generosity is amazing and I truly thank you but It will be for a crossbreed supertuck and I think I'm going to go with one of their belts as it should fit it right.I'm going to wait until I get it in so I can measure it and be sure I get it right.But again thank you. sj

    I was going to suggest the Wilderness Instructor 5-stitch as well. I have it and a 5.11 casual leather belt. The Wilderness is my everyday "go to" belt it seems. I use the CrossBreed SuperTuck as well.

    I use my Beltman belt for my Crossbreed supertuck. I love it and the offer still stands if you desire to go the Beltman route.

    Either way, best of luck and I hope you find the belt that works for you.

    I think the Wilderness 5 stitch would be a great choice.Then you can save up for another belt for when it wares out.

    My Alessi gun belt is double. It's held up for 5+ years now. I've worn it just about EVERY day (as I am crazy and wear jeans in the summer) and it's held up like a champ.
    In the Marine Corps I carried one of the standard Beretta M9 service pistols in a traditional duty holster. Now it's a 1911 in a SuperTuck. I'm glad for the upgrade.

    sjones;

    Regardless who you go with get a good quality dual layered Bull Hide belt. It will make all the difference in the world.

    If we can help, just give us a call.
