Gary, do you have any pic's yet?
Nope - I just got it a few hours ago. Here's a link, though, to their site: http://thewilderness.com/catalog/default.php/cPath/3Ti Carry said:Gary, do you have any pic's yet?
maclean3 said:Thanks Gary, sounds really encouraging to say the least. I've got to tell you though, a "sample" sounds like they sent you a buckle and three inches of belt. :tongue:
Hi Jack,maclean3 said:I know they've developed a good range of belts: Frequent flyer, 5 stitch, "polymer" insert models and different widths and colors. As I said in the other thread, I'm mainly a jeans guy so I guess either a 1.5" or 1.75" would work. Heck, I might even be interested in the beige or OD colors ... wouldn't want to "clash."
Curious what all you're planning on stocking from them.
Not only do I agree with your statement, but a lot of my pants won't take a 1.75" belt either . . . and keep in mind that the Wilderness belt is at least double the thickness of a standard belt.RSSZ said:Suggest that you guys take a close look at what holster will be worn/used with the belt. Lots of great holsters will not accept a 1.75" belt. Especially the lined/stiffened type of belts.----------
I use a 5 stitch 1/12 inch Wilderness wtih your Max Con v's and they work very well together. I've been thinking about one of your Def-Cons for winter wear. Not sure if I'm going to hang on to the Para yet. I think that the full size 1911 would be too long to hide easily under a light jacket or flannel shirt??? Hence the P-12... for now.Gary Brommeland said:Hey guys!
The 5-Stitch that I'm presently wearing is the 1.5" for just the reasons that ya'll have stated. Many current production holsters, mag pouches and trouser belt loops will not fit a 1.75" belt, so I wanted to make sure that the 1.5" was up to the job.
I am presently wearing my 5" steel frame 1911 in one of my Def-Cons (which is an OWB pancake type design) and they work VERY well together. This belt supports the holster/weapon every bit as well as a top end leather gunbelt. Thus far, I am very impressed with this product.
I'm not sure if you are asking my opinion here or not, but here goes: It really depends upon your clothing choices. As I type this I am wearing a light fleece sweater, and my 5" is easily covered. The distance from the bottom edge of the belt to the lowest point of the holster's muzzle is 4 3/8". The holster, BTW, is a Def-Con.Realleycat said:I think that the full size 1911 would be too long to hide easily under a light jacket or flannel shirt???
joe/OH said:I occasionally OWB carry my 1911 and with a light jacket - no problem. I have a few t-shirts long enough to cover the barrel without much problem but I do get a little bit of printing - but it's a fobus - not a def-con.
I feel dirty mentioning those two in the same sentence. Sorry Gary!
Thanks for the Info and advice. I'll have to measure some of my cover garments. Remember that I'm only 5'7" and weigh 140 lbs. So there is not a lot of me to hide things!!!Gary Brommeland said:I'm not sure if you are asking my opinion here or not, but here goes: It really depends upon your clothing choices.

As you play around w/ your various cover garments, this should be able to tell you if it will work for you, given your clothing preferences. Good luck!
