    A quick search will get you any number of recommendations from previous similar threads.

    My personal favorite are the belts The Beltman, Jim Speidel makes.

    +1 on The Beltman. Jim will take care of you. I've bought two from him and have another on order. Top notch belts and excellent customer service.

    I agree with David considering price and quality. If you were looking for the nicest I would recommend those by Sparks, Nossar and a few others, but I think you will be pleased with Beltman.

    I have one and like it.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Had mine for over one year and it still looks great. You will be amazed out how much different a good belt makes when you carry.

    I have a few nice belts. Galco, Beltman and so on. I just ordered me a Cabela's from a link I think from this forum. I just received it and it as thick as any gun belt I ever bought and as in-expensive as a normal belt. The snaps seem a bit weak but that can be fixed if it ever becomes a issue and I doubt it will. At $24.99 it is a real good deal.


    Cabela's Double Duty Belt

    Edited to add: I only recommend this belt as a inexpensive alternative.

    I also just picked up a Cabela's Double Duty because of comments I read on a previous thread. Good thick leather, almost 1/4" thick and ready availability. This is a short term solution as I think I've fallen in love with the Beltman's products and I'm going to order one of those. The only reason I went with the Cabelas belt was delivery, immediate gratification vs 40 days lead time with Beltman.

    The only drawback to the Cabelas is it seems like a fairly soft leather. But for now it's working great.

    I don't want to speak for Jim but I saw some recent posts where folks got theirs in about 30 days or less. About 30 days is what Jim said when I just ordered my third one. Definitely worth the short wait.

    I bought four economical but great leather belts from Looper Leather...$40 each.

    Another recommendation for the belt man. Received it from payment to door in 25 days. The black belt with black square buckle is super nice, but I also love the fact that I can use my own buckle.

    I agree cant beat The Beltman. But if you dont want to wait 30 days look at Galco gun belts. Very nice thick belts. Ships same day at Opticsplanet.com
