    Has anyone tried their belts?
    I'm ordering one of their Superbio belts for work and am considering the same for CCW.
    Also considering one of their leather CCW belts.

    The Superbio would be nice, due to chemical resistance and no stretching.
    Dunno.
    What say ye fine folks.
    All opinions welcome, even those with which I disagree.

    I have one of their Superbio belts and it's fantastic.

    In fact right now I'm wearing one of their leather belts on which hangs an IWB holster with a heavy gun it it. That's a fantastic belt as well.

    Do not know anything about these belts, but You have aroused my interest. I am going to take a serious look.

    Oh by the way:

    "Who do You trust when everyone is a crook."

    In that case I trust no one and I take a Second look at Myself! :D

    Just could not resist this one. :neener:

    No experience with their belts but I've been using one of their elephant hide wallets for about six months and it's holding up nicely. Finally softened up a bit.

    Same company as: http://www.daltechforce.com/

    I've got one of their dual layer belts .. initially it was very stiff, but after a year of wearing, it's basically a thick leather belt. There isn't any wear to it to speak of, some scratching caused by the metal clip...

    If I had it to do over, I would get it with the kydex stiffener insert .. or perhaps beltman.

    figure 20 more lbs weight loss, I'll need a new belt.. :-D

    I have a hook-and-loop and a regular belt from Bullhide......both very very good gun belts. Makes carrying a full size 1911 a breeze.

    I have two of their belts, one with velcro and the other has the double-pronged buckle. Both are 1.5" bullhide gunbelts about 1/4" thick. Overall I like them very much. Well, the velcro one doesn't fit well but that's my fault, just ordered wrong. Could have returned it but I forgot about it.:eek: But the one with two rows of holes is great. Very very stiff for great support of the gun.

    While I can't complain about it I do think when I get a new belt I'll go with an Armour belt. They used two layers stitched together. Mine is great but long term I've read that two layer belts will keep their shape longer. Plus the Armour ones are maybe just a little bit nicer looking.

    But for the price it's hard to beat BullhideBelts.com stuff. They ship fast, CS is good and the products are great.

    I don't have a Superbio, but their regular belts are super. You won't be disappointed.

    GaryP, you're making me laugh! Want some advice from an older man? :)

    It's not so much a matter of not being able to trust anyone, ever, as it is of knowing:

    (1) Who to trust,
    (2) What capacity to trust a particular person in, and
    (3) For how long should you allow this (Yes!) extraordinary relationship to continue?

    People are, or can be, trustworthy; it's more a question of, 'Is this the right (mutual) opportunity, and is now a good time?' ;)

    It's from Revolution Calling, by Queensryche.

    I used to trust the media
    To tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    But now I've seen the payoffs
    Everywhere I look
    Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?


    I received my two belts from Bullhide belts today.
    I am quite impressed with both.
    They are quite stiff, which is what I need.
    They came, just in time. My current work belt is on it's last legs, and I didn't want to pay for another one, since I had this one coming in.

    The CC belt is 1/4" thick, 1.5" wide, and also very stiff. Exactly what I wanted.

    Only problem is, I can only lose another 2-3 inches through the waist, before I'll have to replace them.

    Queens .... what? ;)




    ( Personally, I wouldn't call losing another 2-3 inches through the waist a problem. Ahh, youth!) :D

    Hahaha! QR is actually one of my favorite bands, and they're the first band I ever saw live! Curiously, they're also the last show I have seen (saw them locally a few years ago before they imploded). Awesome show. I don't think I've ever heard them quoted on a gun forum!:D

    Yeah, Geoff Tate was a fantastic singer, but he appears to have gone full DB.
    Todd LaTorre is a perfect replacement, though.
    Never thought I'd say this, but they're really good without GT.

    Anyway, both the SuperBio belt and the concealed carry belt are fantastic.
    Both work very well for CC.
    The leather CC belt is 1/4" thick, single layer leather, and stiff as hell.
    I can carry my full size SR9 and forget I'm wearing it.
    Last Friday night, I was using the SuperBio belt to carry the SR9, a 2.5" Smith 66, AND a Smith .36. Very comfortable.

    Wondering if the Bio belt gets the same "curve" (when the belt is off and laid flat, it has a curve to it) as a leather belt does after wearing for some time?

    Both my Beltman and my Ferarra do and they are both double thick.

    Also wondering if it looks like leather or like "pleather"?
