    Gentlemen, which do you prefer, Web belts, Leather, Metal Reinforced? My regular belts aren't up to the challenge. Any pointers appreciated.

    Thanks,
    john
     
  2. I prefer Kore Essentials EDC Gun Belts. I have both their leather and EDC woven gun belts. They have a 'ratchet style' buckle so they infinitely adjustable. Also, once you have a buckle all you need to do is buy other belts as needed. Very tough and durable yet stylish and attractive. Like me.

    My favorite economy belt is Hanks Belts. They are very tough belts made from harness leather. Only complaint is they are a bit thick at the buckle. I dare you to wear one out! https://www.hanksbelts.com/products/hanks-gunner-leather-gun-belt

    My favorite belt overall is the MTR custom leather. I do prefer mine with stiffeners because my EDC can be heavy. (1911’s) These are nice trim belts. https://www.mtrcustomleather.com/product/bull-hide-gun-belt-gb-1/

    For a really nice belt, IMHO, check out their shark hide belt! https://www.mtrcustomleather.com/product/shark-hide-gun-belt-gb-3/


    ( Edit to add some friendly advice. Don’t skimp on anything that comes between you and the ground -such as shoes and mattresses. Or on your belts and holsters. )

    I've been wearing a Crossbreed leather belt day in and day out for about 9 years now. Still does the job.

    I prefer things that do not look like pistol belts. A typical day to day belt but something that is sturdy enough. If you go to any "cow boy/western store" and let them know what you need, they have racks of full grain, 1.5-2.0" inch belts that will do the job.

    One of the reasons I mentioned the 2 I did. The Hanks Gunner looks just like what you would expect when wearing jeans. The MTR custom links like casual.

    I love the Hanks belts, I have two, but they are wearing a bit, in appearance. Still 100% functional, great belts.

    The better belt, IMHO, is the SuperBio gun belts from Daltech. I have a 1” dress belt that gets worn 3 times a week...shows zero wear over about 3 years now.
    Only thing is, they don’t do brown, except in their leather, which comes with or without steel core, in many nice styles.

    Just wondering how long he gets to stay. Or is it a fake admin account from the evil overlords above Rach. Stealing other users previous posts.

    I wear only belts from "The Beltman"... double layered bull hide, double stitched with a stiffener in them. They are good looking, don't look like a gun belt and don't sag with even a heavy firearm on them.
