    Wilderness Tac Belt

    Does anyone use this belt??

    http://thewilderness.com/catalog/pro...c285c349d4e761

    What is the difference between the original and the polymer lined??

    Does the original hold up a medium frame handgun and spare mag ok??

    I have a nice Rosen gun belt that I use all the time. I'd like to find something a little more casual for range, woods bumming etc....

    There is a difference in stiffness, but it's slight. I have the polymer lined and love it. I tried the standard which is almost at stiff, but liked the stiffer option. I have some pretty severe back problems and can honestly say it helped.

    I think the original will hold up anything you put on it. Mine is about 2 years old now and shows no signs of wear. Just make sure to follow their sizing guide.

    I have a 5 stitch and love it. I carry a CZ75 PCR, both IWB and OWB.
    If I need another belt (for color or size) I'll order another one of these..

    I also have the Frequent Flyer 1 1/2" 5 stitch.. I love it.. I am seriously thinking of getting a second belt because I am getting tired of moving the belt back and forth between different pants several times a day.. It has became my daily casual dress belt. I have had no problems with the 1 1/2" belt fitting any of my jeans, shorts, or Khakis..

    I chose the FF because I just didnt like the look of the regular buckle. Not that the double rings of the FF look much better, but the regular belt just seemed too big to me..

    Good luck.. You cant go wrong with a wilderness..

    +1 Great belt! Get the 5-stitch.

    Also, I wear size 34 pants, so I got a size 38 belt and it works perfectly carrying a Glock 19 IWB.

    I use the 5 stitch instructors belt. No problems with sagging, even with a Stainless 5" 1911 and 4 mags.

    I just got my 5-stitch 1.25" frequent flyer yesterday.

    I am very impressed! It's very comfortable and holds up the ole holster and mag pouch just fine :)

    Of course, my wife thinks it's ugly as hell, but oh well.

    Look at this way, you just saved $30 by not having to order one for her.

    I have the polymer lined 1.5" version. It works great as an underbelt for my duty rig and works great for most of my OWB carry gear.

    My Galco Matrix M7X ( http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterG3.asp...=2783&GunID=47 ) doesn't work well with it though as the belt is so thick that it causes the holster to actually cinch down on the pistol very hard to draw. I don't particularly like the way my one of my IWB rigs (also a Galco) works with it (won't conform around the holster), but it works VERY well with my Blade-Tech UCH.

    I'm thinking of ordering a 5 stich 1.25" version, possibly in a frequent flyer version.

    I Have the Black...

    Instructor's Belt (1.5") and I just ordered the same in Wilderness Coyote (brown)...hadn't seen that color before...that should work well.
    Can't beat these belts for keeping an IWB in tight.
