    Belts?

    I have been carrying now for almost four years. I've used Harley Davidson belts for that time. I have noticed they seem to become quite flemssy where my holster and mag pouches set. I am interested in a good heavy duty gun belt that still is comfortable. What do you fine gents use and what do you like about them/any dislikes. I don't mind continuing to use a standard belt but they get expensive buying them that often.

    I wear a Wilderness Instructor 5-stitch carrying one or two Glocks iwb, and one or two TDI Kabars. I have worn my current one for well over a year, and it shows no signs of breakdown. Buy it six inches longer than your pants waist size, and it will accommodate one or all of what I listed.

    Beltman. World of difference since going to that. Any other belt I have had seems like a joke, because it is. I bought the premade version with no mods as I am impatient. I will buy another with some mods to my liking but thus far it has been awesome. I have had it one year and it is still as strong as the day I got it. Love it. Glad my dad never had one if you know what I mean.

    Yes, the Wilderness Instructor works well with both belt loops and clips.

    I use a crossbreed custom belt with Velcro on the inside for deeper concealment with a tucked shirt been using it for over a year carrying a g23 with zero problems. Also have a handmade belt bought at a gun show that's more than three years old about 1/4 inch thick that is just as good

    Six inches long will still work for you, and will allow for future flexibility. Even when I am wearing no gear, my belt still functions perfectly.

    There are options such as sharkskin, elephant skin, internal stiffener, colors other than black etc. I carry a LW Colt Commander and occasionally up to 2 8 rd mags in a pouch on it. Gun IWB.

    There are sizing charts on his website thebeltman.net
