    Thanks for all the comments, guys. The weight thing is a constant battle for me since leaving the Corps. I am tired of not carrying so these ideas are much appreciated. The good thing about losing weight is that it is actually easier to conceal with broad shoulders and no huge gut... the shirts hang a lot better for concealment now.

    Not sure about the Wilderness belt, but the easy way to shrink any other is from the buckle end.

    You can!

    I'm nothing special, just a guy who decided I was worth the effort. How much do you do for others without even thinking twice about it?

    Congrat's on the weight loss. If the WB belt is in good shape just sell in on line. You will take a loss but the loss in $$ will be far less painful than now carrying at all. Buy an IR leather belt & have extra holes put in it until you reach your goal. Than get your self a good quality leather belt.

    Get a Galco Matrix belt (if you look around a little, you can find them priced as low as $20.00) for now, and send your Wilderness Tactical belt back to them for the $10.00 credit they'll give you on your new 36" belt.

    From thewildernesstactical.com FAQ:
    Q: I've lost/gained weight...can my Instructor Belt be made shorter/longer?

    A: Like most belts, the Instructor Belt™ has about a +1"-1" range. This can compensate for normal shifts in weight and clothing, but not significant changes. The design and construction of the Instructor Belt™ does not lend itself to alteration due to the location of stitch patterns, the end-tab treatement, labor and shipping costs. However, if you arrange to send us your old Instructor Belt™, or just its buckle, we will be glad to give you a $10.00 credit and re-use it on your new belt (*The buckle is not refinished in recycling). Please call for instructions.
