    I have one of these and a Wilderness Instructors Belt and a couple of double thickness gun belts. It is fine for IWB carry and I think it would be OK for OWB carry with a lighter gun.

    I was curious to see how they were holding up long term, I was thinking of getting one to hold me over before I decide on which DC approved gun belt to get, and then wait the inevitable shipping time, where as I can drop in the store and have something that works that's a step above the normal kohls/walmart/target/jcpeney/macy flimsyness; but I also didn't want to just throw $20 down the drain, so I only want to get one if it's a valid option for regular carry.

    This is a great find! I will be checking TS out for one of these myself very soon!

    Like you, I have kids, 5 of them in fact and always need to find ways to save money. This would be ideal!

    I picked a couple the C.E. Schmidt Workwear belts from Tractor Supply Inc. last week. One appears to be the same item that smolck had pointed out in the OP (TS7504-20), although the rest of the UPC numbers aren't the same.

    These belts are brown & one is approx. 1-9/16" & the other is approx. 1-7/16". The smaller of the two fits the narrower belt loops of Dockers pants & I'm also using it with my shorts. The larger will be relegated for use with my jeans in cooler weather. The thickness of both belts is approx. 3/16", which is slightly thicker than standard belts & much more rigid.

    The color of the narrower belt is a little light for my tastes, so I think I'll try darkening it with a little liquid brown polish. I do like the added stability that they provide for my holster over the limpness of standards belts.

    I'll report back in a few months with a durability status.

    I have been using one of the SKU #7533478 for several months now and very pleased with how its holding up...time will tell.

    Just ordered the Black Amish belt. It appears heavy enough, and as being made of strap leather, it should be strong enough for many years of CCW wearing. tHANKS FORM THE TIP..

    will this fit with a crossbreed super tuck or is it too wide?

    The crossbreed super-tuck if I remember correctly, can accommodate up to 1-3/4 inch belt. This will work just fine.

    They have one that looks just like this but is thinner so make sure you get the thicker one if you go this route.

    I took a pic of the item # to help. Had a couple others that would work too.

    Hope this helps those of you like me with tight budgets!
    I swung into TS this morning and bought one. I've been wearing it all day so far and I really like it. It is very think for a single layer belt and it is rigid. I tried it with several holsters for the Glock 23, the XD 40 and my CW9. Obviously, the CW9 doesn't cause and sag in the belt, it weighs next to nothing. The G23 and the XD40 both are much heavier guns and they don't cause any sag in the belt either.

    This belt is a good bit thicker than the Dickies belt I have been wearing from a while now and it was about due to be replaced anyway.

    So far, I am finding this belt to be a winner.

    For the Hank's Amish Belt, this really depends on the "clip" used.

    With the CBST's standard Cross-embossed metal clip, you won't have a problem at all. There's actually a little room still left over, just like TXbushwacker said.

    With their J-Clip, however, the belt is actually just slightly too thick (not it's width, but it's thickness), so that when you start moving, you'll eventually have the clip popping off the belt. It's possible that with enough wear, the belt will compress a bit at the stress points and allow the J-Clip to seat completely and not displace, but I cannot testify to that, either way.

    Yes, I own the combo, and yes, that's from personal experience.

    Thunder71: I swear that I saw at least one of the thicker ones in black, probably in a smaller size. Perhaps they are in higher demand? If you stop out there, ask them if they have a buyer's catalog that you could look at...they seem like nice enough people.

    True, thanks - good idea. They have always been very personable there, you're right.

    I went in today and picked up the thickest black one I could find on the rack, whole heck of a lot better than the shorter, thinner Walmart special I had been using but was falling apart, but not as thick or sturdy as I was hoping, I'll get photos up later tonight to compare with what's already been mentioned. It'll serve it's purpose, I'm just not convinced that I've found the good one yet.
