Okay, I really need to wisdom of the DC community.

I got a $100 gift card from my parents for Christmas, and I want to buy a quality gun belt with it. Criteria:
  1. I carry primarily OWB, but when I put a suit on (8-10 times a year) I go IWB.
  2. The OWB is always under a cover garment but the IWB is not, so black is the color
  3. I want a belt that looks nice and would with slacks on.
  4. I want it to have good vertical rigidity for carry (XD9sc) but don't want it to feel like I'm an LEO on duty!

So if you were in my shoes, where does your $100 go? I don't have to spend it all if I don't need to, and could add a few bucks for shipping and tax if I needed to. Thanks for your combined wisdom!

I have two Beltman belts and find them to be of excellent quality and he delivers as promised.

Check the belts at Tractor Supply. They are a very good value. I bought the Cabelas Double Duty belt for $25 and it is excellent.

I have a Jay-Pee i bought at the local LE shop. When i was a CO they issued some cheap belt, so i went and bought a nicer, heavier one to wear with my uniform. Now i just use it as my gun belt if i wear my 45 OWB.

I use two different belts. For get down and dirty days I use a Wildernes Instructor's Belt. But for normal or dressed up days I use my trusty Beltman. Looks good and you could hang a Buick on it!

Good luck!

I plan to buy from this guy again if he's still in business. I've had mine over a year, used it every day, and haven't noticed any sagging or wear. I keep planning to order another one in a smaller size but I haven't got a round tuit.

Looper and Beltman are both good suggestions. Those Amish made belts look very promising.

I wear a Bianchi Professional series Leather belt at work and a laminated duty belt other times.

I carry a full line of belts that will last an entire career.

Doh! I was looking under apparel. Tried the search with "belt" and "belts" but it didn't work.

Got it now. Thanks!
