I got one a couple of years ago and wear it every day, even when I'm not carrying. I find the slip buckle and the velcroed segment very convenient and easy to use. Sturdy yet flexible material that provides support w/o "strangling" my waist, and is ideal for a IWB holster. I recommend it.
I had one that I gave away. It worked reasonably well for IWB. It had a poly insert but was much thinner than a Wilderness CSM. The buckle didn't grab the belt like a Wilderness belt. That made tucking the end through the loop tough without losing tension. The stitching on the velcro started unravelling quickly although not to the point of losing the velcro.
For a few bucks more, I'd go with the Galco version but for a couple dollars more than that, Wilderness 5 stitch is the way to go. The UM is usable but is no where near the quality of the Wilderness or even the Galco.
I have about 6 of these...I have a few extras because of my 'expanding' horizons...:rofl:...excellent belts and you'll never wear them out. They are just not 'dress' belts, but on jeans they're 'perfect'.:yup:
I have both an Uncle Mike's and a Wilderness belt and although I prefer the Wilderness belt, I do wear both. So far both are holding up well but I can see that the Uncle Mike's is not quite as well made as the Wilderness. Not as dressy as my Beltman leather belt but very good with jeans or even hiking shorts.
