    Concealed Carry Belts

    Where can I find good quality concealed carry belts? I've only found a couple of companies on the internet. Their belts did not impress me. Thank you.

    What will you be carrying??
    What position will you be carrying??
    And let me start it off by suggesting the Kore Trak Line belts.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.

    14 oz Bigfoot gun belt with steel core.

    I also like my 911 double duty for carry around my property. Not as stable but very comfortable.

    This, ordered four inches larger than my trousers waist size:

    or this, ordered six inches larger than my pants size:

    Of the two, I prefer the weight and buckle of the Graith. Both are excellent belts.

    My #1 used belt is the Crossbreed Crossover: https://www.crossbreedholsters.com/b...-gun-belt.html

    My #2 and 3 most used are the Graith and Wilderness belts, mentioned above.

    My #4 most used is a Bigfoot steel core, which works great for a heavy revolver, or other full sized steel guns.

    I also have a Kore gunbelt. It worked great for about 2 years, then I've had the buckle break (replaced) and the plastic core break. They've supposedly improved both the belt and buckle, but I'm still a bit skeptical about durability.

    Had a few other riggers and leather belts along the way, none worth commenting on other than you get what you pay for.

    +1 on Graith and Bigfoot.
    Graith for AIWB, Bigfoot for IWB and OWB.

    +1 on the Wilderness 5-stitch belt.

    For leather, I like AG Custom Leather belts

    The RGB is a nice leather track belt that will handle some weight...and has a lifetime warranty. The Kore tactical nylon belt is a lot stiffer than their leather belt and has been holding up well for me. The buckle for the Kore leather and tactical have been improved.

    @NelsonHolsters makes an incredible gun belt. Thin, stiff. Much thinner and harder than the bigfoot. I prefer it to the bigfoot, but it's all in what you want.

    I use Beltman belts (https://www.thebeltman.net/) and Wilderness belts (https://www.thewilderness.com/) with the 5-stitch option. The Wilderness Frequent Flier belts make getting through airport security a tad easier. I carry either a 1911 or a plastic 9mm with zero difficulty.

    My favorite gun belt is my Armour double layer belt. I finalized the size after talking to the maker on the phone. It is a bit thicker than 1/4" and that poses a problem for the slots or metal clips in some holsters, but it is firm enough to hold any gun securely.

    My least favorite is the Kore Essentials gun belt. It is dressy looking and infinitely adjustable for size, but the plastic stiffener broke shortly after using it a few times and, in my opinion, it is not sturdy enough to support a large or heavy gun.

    I have one from Belt Man that is a few years old and still looks/feels great. I use it IWB with my S&W 45c, Glock 19 and my 5 shot revolvers.---Sturgis

    Bigfoot 14 oz steel core and a everyday Hilason Buffalo belt.

    So many choices out there.
