    You are rolling the dice with this... Are you doing LEO work or security?

    Your belt makes a huge difference in your day, dont buy whatever is cheapest... you will end up replacing it soon.

    I'll bet that you will get better quality from Safariland.

    You get what you pay for.

    Consider Bianchi Accumold. It's more expensive, but your back will thank you.

    Buy the best you can afford. I remember my father wearing the same duty belt up till the day he retired. Now tose old belts back then were very heavy too. I recall helping him when he cleaned his guns AND the leather goods he used.
    They will last a lifetime if taken care of. Buying cheap if a false economy if you have to buy twice.

    Definately, true. You will see why it is so cheap after a 12 hour shift!

    It appears to be the exact same as my old Uncle Mike's setup. In fact I am sitting here looking at it and the picture and it appears identical down to the last stitch. The radio holder, cuff case, mag holder, everything. It might even be manufactured by them. Contact Cheaper Than Dirt and see who makes the gear. If they had it built by a quality manufacturer then you probably don't have anything to worry about. Except for the holster. Someone gave me one of those years ago and it was pure crap. If you are on a budget then you can probably save a lot of money by getting this package and then buying a good holster, and you'll be fine. I personally didn't care for the way some of this gear worked compared to other products, but they did the job. I prefer an ASP baton holder, and a Safariland mag holder, and a Safariland holste, but the UM worked fine.


    The only real problem I see is this:
    Tactical Equipment System BLACK 2 Wide Belt Adjusts to 54


    With so much adjustability comes a whole lot of slack. Which means that if you have a 36 inch waist, you're going to have 18 inches of overlap, 9 on each side. If you've never worn one of these rigs before, that is a lot of overlap on the front of the belt.

    But if you have a 54 inch waist, it will probably fit well. Of course if you need that much belt, it's time to find a new job.
    Rest In Peace Dad! I love you!!!

    I went with nylon gear because it's less exspensive and easier to take care of, as well as being lighter weight.

    With that said I chose the Bianchi Accumold gear. It holds up well and supports all the crap I carry well. Before the Accumold I used leather. Leather is heavier, cost more and takes more effort to care for.

    I recommend buying the best that you can afford, it will pay for itself in the long run.
