    My non-custom BeltMan has served me well, but I decided to look around.

    Web belts do nothing for me.

    I do want to lose weight, so someday I may return to my previous svelte self.

    Here's one I've looked at, I like the buckle, the design, but have huge reservations about their appropriateness for a gun belt. I have asked them several questions which I will relay back here when answered.

    Slidebelts

    Does anyone have experience with these?

    What else might you suggest?
    Big foot. I have two received both in a week or less. Good customer service. First one I screwed up and ordered a size to big ( a little to long by still fits so I kept it) had I called and sent it back within 7 days they would have sent me a new one even though it was my screw up. I just ordered another one in black instead of brown. I always figured a man should have one brown belt and one black belt anyway.
    Good luck in your search. Let us know what you decide on and how it works out for you.

    Absolutely. It's really nice to discreetly and quickly adjust without using two hands and flapping a belt end around while adjusting a traditional buckle. Hopefully someone will make a similar design for sturdier belts someday too, my big guns are feeling left out.

    On second thought, I might quit the diet. I don't want to be associated with the Fogel:P

    I've been on an intermittent fasting protocol for about a year now. I eat whatever I want, I just eat a certain amount of it, and only during a certain time period.

    I lost a bunch of weight, but later found it hidden under some empty pizza boxes and cases of beer. Since I seem to fluctuate between winter hibernation and beach body it's good to have belts that adjust a lot.

    I know you want leather but reinforced nylon belts will give you a little play because they don't have set adjustments meaning it works even if your in between sizes and no matter what size gun you carry. Just my .02

    This!

    https://www.armourbelts.com/gun-belt

    My wife has bought me gun belts from this firm for Christmas this year and last, and I can't say enough good things about the product. I got their 1.5" Gun Belt which is double thickness and nicely stitched, with a good range of color options. Last year's was mahogany with brown stitching and a #3 nickel buckle, which is a nicely understated complement to my usual khakis. This year I got the same in all black. I wear it as a dress belt belt because I'm sick of "name" department store belts stretching, softening and rolling over in a year's time.

    In a year's use, the belt has hardly taken a set at the buckle, which of course is the high wear and high stress point on any belt. The two holes I've used show no signs of stretching at all.

    The basic gun belt is $79 without any options like embossing, special buckles, etc. Delivery time was less than two weeks, and that was after Thanksgiving. A nice plus is that she said Mike, the proprietor, is a real nice guy to deal with.

    FWIW, I wouldn't go with a 1.25" width unless you had a specific need. That's what I got for my first gun belt (along with a Horseshoe Leather holster, back when Andy A. was still doing belts) and IMO it's better for a dress belt than for utilitarian purposes.

    Here's a question for the Bigfoot Belt users: does the belt slowly take on the gentle curve of your waist, or does the steel keep the belt as straight (on edge) as a rule, even after a lot of wear?

    It stays straight. It's the only belt I've ever owned that doesn't take that curved shape. I've been wearing mine nearly daily for ~ 6 months.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    I find that generally cutting out all carbs, soda, sweets....etc will help you get back to fitting into your current belt.

    As for me I am adding holes as I am down about 80lbs.

    Straight so far. Had it for a little over six months and it has about five months of wear. I have nothing to compare it to since its my first gun belt.

    Even though the Bigfoot 16 oz double leather SS core did not work for me since I have narrow hips and even my BT380 drug my pants off my hips, I recommend them to any average built gun carrier. For me the BF was just too stiff and and mainly too thick. I have to use a thinner belt with suspenders, double leather with a poly core, and modify the suspender clamps to spread to clamp onto the belt. I beat up the finish on the BF trying to clamp the suspenders on to it. Another plus point with BF is their Customer service has got to be of the best.
