    I have three different gun belts:

    A Beltman. It is very nicely made and the stiffness is excellent. However, it is thicker than I like.

    Liger. Made of a synthetic material with an internal stiffener. It is every bit as stiff as the Beltman while being much thinner. I am not real fond of the unusual buckle design though.

    Galco Matrix MB1. Made of the same material as the Liger, but without the internal stiffener. So far it seems to work well, but I haven't had it very long so I don't know how it will hold up. It was by far the cheapest (under $30).

    My wife has a Cabela's "Double Duty" which is currently on sale under $30. While not up to Beltman quality, it certainly does the job.

    Try Dave at http://littlebearholsters.com/. I've got a great belt and holster from him. He does quality work at very fair prices.

    Good 1.5 inch gun belt???
    That depends on who you ask. I got two belts made last year by a local leather shop. Good 1/4" thick, one 1 1/4" wide, and one 1 1/2" wide and both fit all of my jeans, custom made to accept any buckle I want, and only six holes double row (which I like) and stainless buckles. Both cost me under $50. I guess I'm not one to have a drawer full of belts like a drawer full of holsters that I never use, and $100 finds it's way to better things the way I am. I may be missing out on something, but only someone else is going to tell me so. I'm happy with what I've got and they work well. This forum has showed me enough to quit buying at Sears though, and besides that...I've supported the Mom and Pop shops that hand make their leather goods. What more can you do for America?

    I ordered my Beltman around the second week of May and I bought a Kevlar lined belt from the Glockstore to get me by. The store quality wasn't lasting and didn't hold well.. I got my Beltman today and having wore it yet, but it looks GREAT,. 1-1/2, black,.. :-)

    I like both the Beltman and Wilderness Instructor, they both work well, jeans get the Instructor, nicer stuff the Beltman belts.

    my1.5 inch belt from CompTac arrived last friday
    ordered it with kydex stiffener
    belt is a tad thick for my Comp Tac holster loops. makes it hard to pull holster onto belt.
    quality is first class
    ordered on line, got belt in 13 days

    What's your budget and do you prefer leather or are you open to other materials?

    This is my first day with my new belt from Crossbreed. It took less than 2 weeks to arrive. Feels great and supports the gun and extra mag. very well.

    Another vote for The Beltman. I received my 1.5 inch horsehide, reinforced, belt from The Beltman several weeks ago. Great belt, top quailty workmanship. Shipped around 45 days from date of order.

    I went with the 7 hole as someone else mentioned

    I ordered two sight unseen just from the recommendations of DC.com members.

    They arrived a couple of days ago and are superb. Well worth the wait.
