    All I have worn for about 15 years on and off duty. There are other belts:) I have been rocking the 5 stitch instructors belt with the Titanium buckle. Love the fact that I don't have to take it off when passing through security when I fly.- George

    Love my wilderness belt. I think they make even more sense for ladies who's fashion may raise and lower the waist of slacks. And you can set the tightness exactly where you want it, for IWB, OWB or just had a big dinner!

    All in all it is a very good item, and I recommend them as an addition to a good quality leather gun belt.
    I concur.

    While I don't use a Wilderness Belt, yet, as I prefer leather many people I know and respect do. They are honest enough to tell me what they think of the Wilderness Belt and I have no problem recommending them.

    With that said, I ordered one earlier this week and can't wait to give it a go.

    I live just a few miles from the Wilderness store and stopped by Monday afternoon to pick up a 1.5" stitch belt in black. They didn't have one in my fatboy size in stock, so, they made it up for me right then. Fantastic service! Fantastic belt!

    I guess we're neighbors. I'm very close to them also.

    My wife and I use Wilderness belts daily. I have only good things to say about Wilderness products and service.

    I wear a 5 stitch or CSM probably 90% of the time. I love my leather belts but the adjustability of the Wilderness are great.
    After reading this thread, I visited there web site and ordered a Frequent Flyer in 1.25". Should be here next week.

    Great belt, solid support, but a bit tactical looking for everyday wear.

    I do the Frequent Flier Belts.

    I have a couple in 36 and a couple in 38 depending on whether I am carrying IWB or OWB. Usually go with the 1.25" but have the 1.5" as well.

    I've had my oldest one for about 5 years or so.

    One of the hidden benefits of them is that when you are forced to use a public restroom you can double the velcro back over and lock it down so you don't have a holster slide off.

    99.9 percent of the time I am wearing my shirt untucked and if I am I am wearing a Wilderness belt.

    I have the instructor belt. After feeding it through the buckle there's a long tongue that needs to be folded back against the belt and velcroed down. That's fine, but the tongue is so long that it covers all or part of the adjacent belt loop. I have to leave the end of the tongue flapping over the belt loop. Sometimes I take the trouble of threading the tongue under the belt loop and velcroing it down, but it's kind of a pain.

    I never go rapelling, so if I had it to do over I'd look for a belt that doesn't depend on a long, velcroed tongue for safety during rapelling.

    Other than that, all the good things people have mentioned about this belt I agree with.
