    For dress or dress casual I use Armour belts.

    For jeans or cargo pants I use Amish Gun Belt.

    I have one Red Nichols "Sidewinder" belt that is an extremely comfortable belt due to how it is cut from the leather with a triple curve and the use of a reduced width for ends of the belt that makes it easier to bend over.

    Another vote for a BigFoot 14oz steel lined belt. I caught mine on sale but I'm not sure they do that anymore.

    14oz. steel-lined Bigfoot Gunbelt will handle almost every need for carrying a handgun. If we're talking about an N-Frame S&W or other really large handgun, then Bigfoot's 18oz. steel-lined version will do the job. Now, for fancy, then S&S Leatherworks is a good "go-to" maker.

    I've been wearing the smooth finish $30 Gunbelt for just over 2 years now. Picked mine up off ebay. Thick leather, nice buckle. Made in USA.

    Belt is still in great condition and supports a full sized 9mm OWB in a pancake DeSantis Speed Scabbard well. I actually may need to order a smaller size since losing 15 lbs or so..

    @danryanpi ,
    Selection of a belt for IWB or OWB concealed carry is dependent upon several factors. Here is a list and my thoughts on each factor.

    1. Weapon size: The larger and heavier the gun the more sturdy the belt must be to support it properly.
    2. IWB: The belted garment concealing the gun adds support so a belt so a lesser belt than one for OWB is usually OK.
    3. OWB: The belt is the total support of the holstered gun. it must support that combo without sagging under the weight, which gets back to #1.
    4. Comfort: Some gun belts are stiffer leather and they can be difficult to break in. This is more of an issue for thin waisted folks like me.
    5. The width of the belt compared to its thickness and stiffness. Wider in any thickness is sturdier so pants belt loops are a factor.

    I once carried a S&W SD9VE with a 4" barrel. It required a more sturdy belt whether IWB or OWB that my current carry gun, a Walther PPS M2 with its 3.2 inch barrel. For IWB witht the Walther I find that my Levis 1.5 inch belt with 3/16 inch thickness works well with my Concealment Express IWB Kydex holster. When I carry OWB with my Crossbreed holster I use a 2 inch belt at 3/16 inch thick. If I were OWB carrying a heavier gun I would want a ľ inch thick belt. In all cases I am referring to concealed carry.

    After a couple of false starts with both non reinforced and steel reinforced belts, I finally found my answer through the NRA Store. American cowhide reinforced with a heavy-duty polymer stiffening strip. Over the past few months I've lost a good bit of weight and have had no qualms about ordering them again in a smaller size.

    I wore a Bushido Tactical operatorís belt daily for several years, and it was the best belt, at that time, that Iíd ever seen.

    Last year, I bought a Nexbelt EDC, which is the best, most comfortable, belt Iíve ever owned. Iíll be using them for the rest of my life.

    Just checked it with a tape. Iíll call it 3/16Ē. The leather ones may be thicker. Mine looks like a coarse weave black nylon thatís fairly stiff, and has NO up/down movement or sag at all.

    I think I bought my Nexbelt on Amazon. I know that Blade Tech and Dillon Precision both carry them.

    Lots of good suggestions above.

    I would also include for your consideration a 5.11 Tactical belt that is continuously adjustable (for when the belt holes miss the optimum size or for when you want that extra-tight snug)

    Try here... https://www.511tactical.com/trainer-belt-1-12-wide.html
