Looks too floppy to be a real gun belt also I don't trust plastic buckles.

Hard to beat a good leather belt

I've got a beltman 1.75" horsehide internal stiffened belt and it shrugs off virtually any load
>>
>>38532977
I have EDC'd a G19 AIWB with that belt for years. Is fine.
>>
>>38532989
>>38532968
No doubt your leather belts are great but I don't want leather.
>>
>>38532986
That's just a nylon belt anon. Not a gunbelt specifically. It doesn't seem to be reinforced at all. There's nothing loadbearing about this.
>>
>>38532999
You can do that with literally any belt. You can do that with any pants with a drawstring. OP wants an actual reinforced belt.
>>
>>38533053
Imma let you in on a secret. You only need a stiff belt for OWB. If you carry IWB the tension of the belt, not the stiffness, is what retains the gun. If your belt, any belt, isn't holding up your IWB carry...it's not tight enough.

>>38533082
>You can do that with literally any belt.

Exactly...hence OP is a fag for wanting some gucci "gunbelt"...
>>
>>38533095
Truth. Belt width is more important than stiffness for stability IWB carry. A thick reinforced belt just adds thickness for no good reason.

Maybe he wants to larp with a YUGE gun. Who tf are you to judge

Better question is what pants are those?
>>
>>38533095
I do just fine with a normal leather belt but there is definitely sagging that i could do without.
>>
>>38533136
big or small don't matter. If you're CCW IWB a wide, thin belt properly tensioned will pin that gun to you. The holster is just to keep it in one spot and prevent it from slipping down into your pants.

>>38533160
Try a belt that's at least 1.5" wide. 1.75 is better if you have the belt loops for it.
>>
>>38533095
A stiff belt really feels a lot better when carrying bigger guns like a G19 or similar and helps me ease tension on the belt without having my pants sagg like a nigger.

For example with an ordinary belt I can tighten the belt so I don't sag but then I sit down and the gun will start cutting off circulation to the ass.
>>
>>38533032
for what reason?

That hasn’t been my experience at all. Started with a non-reinforced Hank’s belt and a Blue Alpha Gear Hybrid. Had to squeeze my guts out with both to keep a moderately sized gun in place. Just bought an 18oz Bigfoot with the spring steel core on a whim a few weeks ago and the difference is night and day.
>>
>>38533183
I had a pistol slide out of a hybrid holster aiwb while i was on a teeter hangup. Retention at the holster is a very real thing and should be prioritised.
>>
>>38533207
Not him but I'm 5'6" 125lbs and have the same issue.
>>
>>38533233
The gun sliding out of the holster means the holster has shitty retention that has fuck all to do with the belt.
>>
>>38533246
Do you wear you pants at your natural waist or do you wear low-rise pants?
>>
>>38533256
Belt tension is part of the retention on a hybrid holster. But they’re straight up ass all the way around and should be avoided like the plague.

not really, it's more a problem when carrying double stack big bois.

>>38533256
My belt was tight. If what the other anon was saying was true the belt would've held the gun. I'm agreeing with you. I only carry in full kydex since.

I'm not some vegan or anything of that faggotry in case you were wondering. No particular reason other than looks. My GOAT belt is a Hank's belt in natural finish and I have Hanks belts in black and in a more formal dress version.

But when I'm wearing cargo shorts or khakis or whatnot I prefer the look of nylon over leather.

what holsters do you use now?
>>
>>38532950
I got flannel daddy's belt and it's fantastic. However it's not really cheap and it takes ADG like 2 months to get through backorders
>>
A good leather belt isn't inherently more expensive than a reinforced nylon belt that's worth wearing. You can make a damn leather belt if you really want to be a cheap ass. I have a 1.75" Triple K that's been great just in general but holds an OWB just fine. For IWB I stopped giving a shit because I use a Sticky Holster and just use the extra tension.

Switched over to Tulster pretty much exclusively. Best holsters I’ve ever used. All I do is replace the clip with soft loops.
>>
I use an SOE low profile; great belt. It's one of only two belts I've used for the past 4 years, it's by far my favorite, and still in just as good of shape as the day I got it. It feels like stepping on a Lego if I accidentally step on it it's so stiff

>using belts to keep your pants from dropping.

Only poor and dumb people do this.

For the rest of us smart enough to buy pants that fit us, wearing belts a purely aesthetic choice or your wearing something related to your task at hand (ex: gun belt, tool bag, back supporter, etc.).

correct answer
>>
>>38532950
I use the 5.11 trainer belt in 1.5. its nylon with a plastic band inside, comes in a few different colors, and has a D-ring buckle and velcro on the tail.
>>
>>38532986
And besides it not being load-bearing, so some items will tend to distort it and flop around, the buckle itself won't slide through some items intended for wearing on a belt. My kydex knife sheath for example. It'd be neat to have a reinforced belt with a slim end which can slide through such things... hm, what about this?

Also get the light duty ,the heavy duty is two webs really two thick for comfy wear. Unless you are actually taking a helicopter ride. It defiantly not breaking.
