    Which "belt" For Iwb Carry?

    I am wanting to carry my Glock 32 with an IWB holster. However, I have read much material about the importance of a good quality belt.

    I have traveled around the web looking for belts, but some of the prices are way over my budget. Can anyone give me leads to good quality belts for dress pants that will not require you to take out a loan?

    Thanks!

    A Wilderness 5 stitch will run around $40 but may not be appropriate for dress pants. Check out Mitch Rosens Express Line belts from Brownells. They are priced decent and are a great quality.

    I have three RafterS 1.25" belts. Two are sharkskin, and really nice for dress also. I chose the 1.25 as some holsters have slots that are 1.5 and the 1.5 RafterS belts will not go through.

    Take a look at RafterS.

    Check out http://www.looperleather.com/KydexBelt.html Nice looking belts that can be had for under $40.00 IIRC.

    Make sure you get one that's big enough. My pants say 32, and when I measured my old belt at the notch it was on with my gun in my waistband I got 36, but I should have ordered a 38. Either that or I'm fatter now...

    You can't do much better than a Beltman.

    +1 for Looper. They look like regular dress belts.

    +9999999 for looper. The kydex belt is THE belt. I have never had a belt so supportive. I have 2 other belts from reputable holster makers. But the Looper kydex belt, it blows them away.

    Dude, I am going to be honest:
    1. A good belt is very important and often overlooked.
    2. There is no need to spend $100.00 + at Galco

    Guess where my belt is from?
    The GAP, yep that’s right – the GAP, the same place all those pesky teenagers hangout. It cost about 20 bucks. It is also very stylish and of very high quality. I have been using it for nearly 5 years and it is still in excellent condition. It supports and balances the weight very well. The stitching is rock solid. The metal in the buckle is solid, not soft and not brittle. It does contour, but not taper, but it is perfect none the less.

    But if you do want a belt designed specifically for guns then do check out Galco. They have belts for about 30 bucks a pop.

    If you want a custom job then PM me, I know a top notch guy who does great work. He made my holsters.

    The Wilderness belt is excellent for around $40, but is a nylon belt and rather tactical in looks.

    Beltman, UBG, KD, Andrews and most other manufactures make a quality belt at reasonable prices. Beltman and UBG can probably get one to the fastest.

    Are they as comfortable as a leather belt?
