The Beltman, 1.5” Double Bullhide with a plastic stiffener.
It's about as stiff as my old sam brown used to be. Really good quality.

I like my custom belt, holster, and double magazine pouch as made by
Kirkpatrick Leather out of Laredo, TX. The belt is 1.5" wide, double
stitched, as are the accessory's. Order all three pieces, and they
knock off $10 bucks; delivered to your door~!:cool: :D

Belts by Magyar, of course...:)
Seriously, I've found using a medium grade leather belt with 1.50 to 1.75 inches work best for the heaviest autoloader or wheelgun. Most holster slots advertise to 2", but it's a tight fit & a real struggle with your trouser loops...

Liger Belt. So far I love it. Ive also gotten several compliments from ppl who had no idea it was a gun belt. They love the buckle. I bought the Nightfall brown w/ black buckle.

Rafter-S. Excellent belts at reasonable prices - at least half the price of the overpriced competition.
$200+ for a friggin' belt, gimme' a break - how about try donating some of that money to a whorthwile cause for the less fortunate for once in your life... :rolleyes:

Gotta agree with Nortonics... plenty of perfectly fine belts available in reasonable price ranges. :)

I have more than one type of handgun, therefore I need several (different) belts. CC belt (Rosen, 1.25") is different from competition belt (1.75" "instructers" belt for use with Kydex), hand tooled Kirkpatrick (for Ruger, FA single action revolvers) "hunting" belt & hand tooled Kirkpatrick for "BBQ" guns/holsters (1911's, N frame S&W's).

I have a couple of Rafter S belts and they are really nice for the money and work well. My favorite is my Milt Sparks belt. It is typical high quality and it is holding it's rigidity longer than the Rafter S.

Just bought a Kydex lined 1.5" belt from Looper Leather in Oklahoma City (I walked in, don't try ordering from their website unless you're a retailer).
$29.95, but mine was $24.95 because of a scrape/imperfection. Not noticeable at all. Hey, it's a belt purpose built for non-nonsense CCW applications...what's not to like? They make some o' them purdy belts, too.

I just received my sharkskin belt from Rafter S Gunleather. Very impressive. I cannot believe how thick and sturdy it is. It was made from a nice piece of sharkskin (glue/stitch bonded to cowhide). It puts my Milt Sparks, my Beltman, my Wilderness and yes....even my Mitch Rosen belts to shame. I can't give it a 2 thumbs up until I wear it for a while. I don't think you can find a $90 belt (shipped) anywhere else with this kind of quality.....especially for an exotic skin.
