    Looper Gun Belts

    I have been looking for a new, relatively inexpensive belt for my carry rig, and stumbled upon the Blade-Tech Looper belts online. Does anyone here have any experience with these belts? The one I am looking at is the 1.5 inch model with the kydex insert. How do they hold up? I have seen a couple of other belt options from other manufacturers around their price point that had issues with the insert breaking and finish peeling off. Also, do they work well for OWB carry? My primary carry is a full size M&P 9mm in an OWB pancake holster.

    I have no experience with the one you mention, but I do have the Cross Breed IWB super tuck with the belt they sell. It is also 1.5" and is very well made. It also has intrgral velcro if you want to use the hidden clips, which I haven't used yet. Whole set up was around $140 with the military discount (10%) they gave me. All in all it is a very comfortable holster and as it keeps breaking in it seems to be less noticable to me when wearing it. This belt would not serve as inexpensive, but comfort is important to many as well as good quality and durability. Often times you get what you pay for.

    I have two of their standard gun belts, both hold up well and are pretty stiff but not uncomfortable. I think their belts are very good for the price and would recommend them.

    Same experience here. I bought my Looper at a sporting goods store for $50 in July and have been very happy with it. I only wish it had holes 3/4" apart. The 1" holes sometimes leave me slightly too tight or loose.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I'm going to go ahead and purchase one. I had been thinking about ordering a Beltman based on reviews I had seen, but I am not at all impressed with their customer service. I emailed them with a few questions several days ago and have yet to receive a response. Why add an email link to a website if you're not going to bother to respond to emails sent? On the other hand, the folks at Blade-Tech were easy to contact and very quick to respond to my questions. Combining that with the positive feedback I received here, I feel pretty confident that I will be buying a quality belt and that issues, if any, will be fairly easy to resolve if necessary.

    I live in the OKC metro area; Looper's are made here, I have two and they are well made nice gunbelts. I carry a steel CZ 75 Compact in one OWB pretty often and NO floppin or droppin at all.

    I'll second the Looper belts. Very well made at an affordable price.

    I had no idea that Blade Tech was selling the Looper belts. That is SPECTACULAR! They are the only leather belts I've worn since I bought my first in 1999. For the LEO types they also make some pretty great duty gear as well. To see their stuff direct looperlawenforcement.com

    ive had a bladetech looper kydex reinforced belt goin on almost 2 yrs , daily worn 16+ hrs. It has curved around my waist like gun belts are supposed to do, to make it more comfortable, very stiff still, I got mine at unholstered.com shipped for about $42. i think it was a little bit higher price last time i checked but still the cheapest ive found online.

    I had a meeting in OKC last year and we got out early one afternoon. Went to H & H Gunshop on I - 40. They had all the Looper stuff in stock. Bought the IWB for my G17. Love it. Next time I'm there I want to get a belt. I really like that at H&H they have a dressing room to try on holsters. Cool also that it looks like a giant AA shotgun shell. The dressing room, not the holster.

    I have a few of the leather Looper Gun Belts. They are very stiff and durable. Plus the hardware is very nice too.
