    I am with you on this - but then I'll have that belt drawer too.

    I am buying some belts for Christmas presents for friends/family. I know some of them have "dressier" days and it would be nice if the belt can pull double duty.

    I may just order one from each (CB & Beltman) and then go from there. This board will surely cause one to purchase too many holsters/belts - because there are so many great ones out there. And I want them all.

    I have considered one, I currently wear a 5.11 belt.

    Does anyone have any pics?

    I currently have a belt from Blackhawk with the insert which is pretty nice. I also have a ST and belt on order from Crossbreed and can let you know in another week or two.

    Man that sucker is thick. Is the Beltman belts this thick? That looks like a strap my granddad used to tone up his knives/razors - then beat the heck out of us kids when we got out of hand. That would not work.

    Yes the beltman belts are that thick. 1/4" to be precise.

    That's because they're dual layer belts. 1/8" each of bullhide or cowhide. Or you can get 1 layer of bullhide and a layer of elephant or shark if you wanted.

    I have one of those and it functions great for carrying. Problem with mine is the coating on the top is peeling away and showing the white stiffner. I was told it would do so - but purchased one - 30 or so bucks shot.

    Well I broke down and ordered the beltman on a majority rules advice. Ordered two of them. I will let you know how well I like them once they make it in. I have a sneaky idea I will be getting one in each color - here we go.

    That Crossbreed belt looks like the Double Duty belt I got from Cabela's. Just the buckle is different.


    Does the Crossbreed belt have two snaps to remove the buckle with?

    No, two chicago screws. Yeah, it's funny how two double layer, black belts can look alot alike.

    Got my Crossbreed belt earlier this week, it is a well made unit and I have no doubt that is will last a good long while. I ordered theirs due to being able to change buckles, as I prefer a couple of custom buckles that I have. Other makers may support changing buckles, but don't specifically advertise it.

I am searching for a belt that not only functions well, but looks just as good.
    which crossbreed holster do you own?

    any pro's and con's you can share would be helpful.

    thanks!
