    Many of those that carry wearing dress slacks prefer the 1.25in belt. They do fit most dress pants better. Any double layer gun belt takes some getting used too. Some holster makers (as many of you discovered) do not make the loops large enough. This is good question to ask when ordering a holster too.

    All of my belts are 1.5" wide. One of them is by Rafter S Gunleather and is a full 1/4" thick. I love this belt, but not everything fits: some of my cellphone holster clips would not stretch far enough to fit, it's too thick to fit through the slots in some of my kydex holsters and magazine pouches, and some of my pants have belt loops that are a very tight to impossible fit.

    FYI, the belt clips on my Comp-Tac Minotaur holster do fit.

    My next thickest belt is a Wilderness Tactical Instructor belt, and all of the above seem to fit, albeit some of them just barely.

    So yes, a belt CAN be too thick.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    I just bought a bullhide belt and a simply rugged silver dollar pancake holster for my sp101. I have been carrying comfortable for a lot longer then 4 hours a day with no problems.2 thumbs up for both

    I have found that the thicker the belt, the less comfortable it is...also, many clip style holsters won't fit over a thick gun belt...so I use a wildnerness belt most of the time...it's plenty stiff but not very thick...and my clip holsters all fit perfect with it.

    Most of my belts are from Beltman and work just fine. Stiff enough, but not overly thinck I use 1.5" most of the time and 1.25 with dress slacks. I have a belt from K&D that is very thick and with some holsters it can a be difficult threading it through the slots. I've not had that problemn with the Beltman belts standard bullhide models. I carry Glocks, SP101, and full size 1911 with no issues IWB or OWB.

    Most likley you will be fine mixing and matching, but there will be some combinations that will not work. We have had trouble, its an FAQ on our site now.
