    I like the 5.11 operators belt but sometimes I may want to dress up a little more. I just ordered one of Jerry Bissell's belts. The photos look good.

    I see a lot of belts made from 2 pieces inadequate leather sewn together & sold as a good gun belt. Oh I forgot you need to add a stiffener to support a holster. What you have are 2 pieces of leather & a piece of plastic called a good gun belt. Also sewn together by a machine, a weak way to adhere 2 pieces of leather. The ones I've seen don't even have the edges burnished. The 2 piece belt makers are charging a premium price for bargain basement leather that has been split to get more yield. Really not a premium product at all.

    What should be used is 1 piece of 14-15 oz. harness leather. No need for 2 pieces sewn together or a stiffener. Using harness leather is beginning with an adequate piece of leather that needs no plastic added (that will break eventually) or weak stitching that will come unraveled. 14-15 oz. harness leather will make a belt that can be guaranteed a lifetime. The only reason you will ever need another is because you want another color. And any sewing done to leather should be hand-sewn if you want real quality.

    I have a CrossBreed gun belt going on 3 years now and it is AWESOME. A little expensive...but you get what you pay for. Mine is also Velcro lined on the back so I can use Velcro holster clips. Only downside beside the price is that it is very thick for a belt.

    511 1.5" casual belt - 40 beans. Goes fine with dress slacks. leather is a bit worn under buckle and where my OWB rides. nickel buckle has chipped a bit to show some cheapy composite steel. Brass plates better and would have held up better. But I'm very happy with it. It's very stiff and holds my government 1911 loaded with 3 ten round mags no problem.

    I agree the 5.11 will get the gob done especially with a heaver rig. On mine the cheap edges peeled away from the stiffening insert but was easily touched up with a sharpie. Love the CrossBreed that I got from Marks "blem" sale for $40 shipped. You can see in the pics that the 5.11 is the stiffest and the leather e-Bay belt was just a wimpy excuse of a gunbelt and waste of money.

    Python gun belt from concealment solutions is the beefiest belt I have owned.

    Just received my Beltman belt today. Black 41" with black, square buckle, seven holes, and internal stiffener...

    Wow. What a difference wearing that than the crap Wally World belt I've been using.

    People, if you've been doubting the benefits of a real belt like I was....GET ONE. IT DEFINITELY MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!!
    I doubt I'll be purchasing another belt for the rest of my life...unless I desire a different color.

    ETA: Make sure you locktite the screws though.

    Think plywood!!! one piece of leather will never be as secure as two pieces bonded and sewn together! A Better Belt USAhas great belts and better prices. I have bought too many belts from other places to mention. I'm glad I finally found a place that sells great belts at great prices.

    You might consider Blackhawk belts. They use a moldable plastic stiffener between the leather layers resulting in a very supportive belt. And right now they are on sale!
