    Is the log included? sorry couldn't resist. Seriously , if it is cheap & on Ebay it is probably worth what you pay for it or a whole lot less.

    i offered them 15.00 and they went down to 19.99 and i declined their offer because shipping is about 7.00
    i ordered a belt from looper, if it ever gets here.im not that far away from them.
    they don't seem to like answering emails, which is something that really bugs me.especially after you have already paid for an item.

    I think you could do about as well with a $9.95 Dickies belt from Wally World.

    Looks single layer, and says 9-10oz., which I believe is quite a bit less than the combined weights of a good double layer belt.

    It looks kinda thin. You need a good double layer leather gun belt IMO. The Looper belt should work. I just ordered a Beltman horsehide.

    It says 9-10 oz. leather.

    A little Leather 101: the weight of the leather is measured (or translated) into 64th inches. 8 oz. = 8/64 or 1/8 inch. 10 oz. = 10/64 or 5/32 inch. It's a decent piece of leather, but still a single layer.

    The double thick gun belts we are accustomed to are in the 1/4 -3/8 inch range.

    You did well passing on this (NOT a gun belt) and buying a real gun belt.

    While I've no experience with Looper, they look like a bargain and IMHO will certainly be better that the eBay belt. Probably much better.

    A cheap thin leather belt = $21.99 = cheap belt. There are too many very good gun belt makers to buy something like that if you are going to used it for carry.
