Galco Belt SB2 vs Wilderness Instructor
I just want to share my experience with these two belts for anyone who is considering either.
First let me say that I actually like both belts. They are both very high quality. I do however like the Instructor better. Here's why...
I'm about 6'2 and weigh 192. I really don't like tight pants or belts. I find the wilderness give me a better fit since I'm not limited to the 1 inch increments imposed by a fixed hole belt. When I carry, I typically wear an untucked golf shirt with a tucked in t-shirt. You never actually see the belt, so the "tacitcal" look of the wilderness is a non issue for me. In fact, it actually looks pretty cool in my opinion so tucked or not, it looks good. The Galco is very thick, and very rigid, which is a good thing, but none of the holes are "Just Right". With the wilderness, I can get that "Just Right" fit.
I HIGHLY recommend the wilderness, and will be buying another for my wardrobe. I also recommend the SB2 from Galco. It is high quality, rigid, and well fitting. My preference of the Wilderness is simply personal preference. Both are fine belts, and neither will break the bank. On a side note, the 5 stitch wilderness is plenty stiff enough. I see no need for the poly insert model.
Oh, by the way, my carry gun is actually pretty hefty. It's a sig p229.
I will also reiterate what all of the smart people around here have been saying for a while. GET A GOOD BELT. When I first got my gun, I was wearing a nice Allen Edmunds dress belt. Now that is actually a $125 high quality dress belt, but it is simply not designed to carry a gun. Since my move to a 1.5 inch belt, carry has been much more comfortable and pleasant.
