So the more i carry the more i look at my “NON-GUNBELT” And go hmmmm this aient holding up well at all. So i need help! Good brand, best overall thickness to use for carry, price points, where you got yours/ best deals, and any plus or negatives? Thanks all for your needed responses!
Hanks is the brand I use daily. a good leather belt will be made with 12-14 oz leather.
5.11 double nylon double thick reversible black/coyote. I bought two Of the same belt about 8+ years ago, the second one still has the tags on it and the first one still looks new. It stay exactly where I put it all day regardless of what’s hanging on or inside it.
I personally have been using KORE belts. $60, but fits all body shapes.
Get a good gunbelt! It’s worth every penny and it changes everything. I waited years making other belts work. Drop $60-$70 on a good belt.
I use a Kore belt, it’s very sturdy, it’s adjustable to you’re size (you will know it fits when ordering because you cut it to the correct length. The buckle is a cranking belt. I loosen and tighten it through my shirt when needed with light making carry obvious at all.
I use the 511 black nylon also it’s very comfortable and holds the gun and mag carrier well, I love it.
NexBelt for me. It’s comfortable, and has no problem supporting my firearms and holster. Even my hunting revolver, that weighs in around 3 lbs when loaded.
Have always been a fan of 5.11 operators belt, and it’s metal detector safe. Over ten years of use. Very sturdy and strong, no drooping.
I have several belts that are not gun belts but do just fine. As long as they’re fairly sturdy and not one of those little fashion belts, they usually work.
I actually got to see this one in person yesterday. It would be a decent option, especially for the price.
The two I like the most are Nexbelt and The BeltMan. Both are excellent. The Nexbelt offers a lot of flexibility in adjustment.
Another vote for Hank’s Belt. Check out their LTP (Less than perfect) great prices, limited quanity.
I bought the Extreme model.
Welcome brother James and God bless you.
I also use, and love, the Kore belts. I have 3 of them with my daily being the nylon and I have a black and brown leather option for nicer dress.
I’ve used Hanks Belts primarily and really like them. I had a non-gun belt prior and wow…what a difference it makes. Although based on the spacing of the belt holes I’m looking into a Kore belt to get the more granular fit, which is key for IWB.
I got the USCCA branded Nexbelt. I wear it every day, and it supports my Walther PPQ and two 17 round magazines without any trouble. It works very well, and I recommend it without reservation.
I like Hanks Belts. My leather has held up to daily use for several years and still looks great. Easily passes an everyday and semi dress belt.
Well I have a 511 that I thought was it then I got a Hanks belt from my nephew for Christmas it is an awesome belt if your in the market for a belt spend the money and go with a Hanks
KORE nylon. Love it 98%.
I have been using A Better Belt USA for several years. It is great. Agree with others that a good gun belt is not cheap and worth every penny. I own two of A Better Belt USA belts. The last one I purchased has an internal stiffener and I think it is the way to go.
