Hey folks, I'm in need of a quality gun belt and preferably leather. I have one of the 5.11 belts. Not sure what it's made of but its not leather. Anyways I cannot keep it tight, or really even get it tight for that matter. Would like some names of good belts with the normal buckle, I do not care for this slide buckle or whatever it's called on the 5.11. Thanks for any advice.

My next leather belt will be a Bigfoot.

Bigfoot. Quality leather with a steel insert. I've had mine for 3 weeks. I've tried many, but none have been as good as this one. It doesn't bend, twist or stretch. It will support anything you hang on it. Bigfoot Gun Belts

Tucker Gun Leather, Milt Sparks, and Comp Tac both all excellent gun belts. They're not cheap, but they are high quality.

Had a 5.11 casual belt. Yeah, "leather". Some composite leather-ish product. I wore mine out.

Replaced it with a Wilderness Tactical Frequent Flyer. Good so far. (But not a "normal" buckle.)

I wear a DEsantis E25 belt. Good, sturdy leather belt for less than $20. I carry a S&W 5906, which is a heavy gun. The belt holds the gun in place with no slippage, and most importantly, it's comfortable.

What are you carrying and how are you carrying? I've had a Beltman for two years and I've started to use it for IWB (HK P2000). I also bought a Trakline just to have a second belt. I'm finding that the 1/4" adjustment on the Trakline is very desirable for IWB; I can get the belt just right, above my hip bone, when the gun is at about 4:00. Trakline says the belt is suitable for mid-weight guns; works well for the HK but wouldn't be substantial enough for my 1911.

All these links I got saved now I can't make up my mind lol. Might be a tougher decision than I originally thought.

Bigfoot G17 -b.jpg For me I have had my Bigfoot Gun Belt since Jan 02, 2016 and wear it everyday all day. I carry a Glock G17 and two spare magazines. I have the 18oz belt. On my AIWB Holster I had to re arrange the spacers on the single clip to fit, but I also have a set of loops. I have a Serpa holster with the belt slide. It is hard to get on the 18oz belt. I might eventually buy a 14 oz belt also. I highly recommend Big Foot !

I've been happy with the two Armour belts that I own, both 1 1/2 inch leather, one brown one black. No sag or other deformation after over a year of daily use
