    Wilderness gun belt

    Anyone wear Wilderness belts daily? I have heard really good things about them. I leaning toward a Wilderness instructor, but was wondering how they look with casual clothing. Maybe I should just go with a leather belt. Anyone have any pics wearing a Wilderness?

    I personally much prefer a leather belt.

    I have two of them and wear them off and on between my Looper Leather belt days.
    They (Wilderness) work very well, but are not for dress pants...fine with jeans or 5.11 shorts. My untucked shirts cover them anyway.

    Most customers I have met wear them daily. Many have told me that they own leather belt. But they say that the wilderness Instructors belts are stiffer and carry better for their EDC.

    I own one and think it's great!!.

    I wear a Wilderness Combat Shooters Model Instructor belt daily. It's got a strip of polymer sandwiched between the webbing for extra rigidity. A lot of people seem to think they're overkill but I sometimes carry a lot of gear on my belt. It's great. It carries anything I put on it without rolling or sagging.

    I think they look fine with casual clothes but I don't tuck my shirts in so no one ever sees it anyway.

    Personally, I don't think they look good. I think that way about camo also.
    I normally wear something like Dockers with a casual shirt with a square tail and leave it untucked. Leather belts look much nicer to me.

    I don't tuck, so looks don't matter to me. They work great. A really nice thing about them is that they are micro adjustable. Don't get me wrong, I love good leather belts, but the Wilderness is so adjustable they can't be beat for comfort. If your IWB one day then OWB the next, or using different CCW's, the micro adjustment is the cats a$$! With leather belts, sometimes one hole is just a little too tight and the next one is just a little too loose. Never a problem with a Wilderness.

    I would have typed exactly the same thing.

    If I am not at work, it is the belt I wear. But at work it is my Beltman belt. Can't go wrong with a Beltman. I have the 5 stitch Wilderness and wish I would have gotten the polymer in it so it would be as stiff as my Beltman.

    The Wilderness belts are great, and rather than an either or solution to a leather belt it is a great addition to having a leather gun belt. I personally don't want to wear my $100 leather gun belt when I am out on my land in the woods, and I don't want to wear my Wilderness belt when I am dressed up nicer. However, when the shirt is untucked...who cares what it looks like. That being said, I like the look of the Wilderness Instructors belt.

    I recently purchased one, and I love it. I wear it everyday now, but I wear untucked so it doesn't matter. Plus the adjustability is awesome. But honestly, I think if it was black and you were just wearing jeans, no one would notice. But that's just my personal opinion obviously.

    I use the frequent flyer when I travel... I hate taking off my belt during TSA screening process... my shoes too but what can you do.
    Ahhh, what an awful dream. Ones and zeros everywhere... and I thought I saw a two.

    I love my Wilderness Instructors belt. I like the fact that it's not click adjustable, but rather can adjust to any tightness.
