Still like new, no sag, comfortable. Very happy with it.
Both are infinitely adjustable through their size range, so its always comfortable and youre not trying to "hit a hole" should gain or lose a little from day to day.
I like the 1.75" wide belts the best, and the slightly stiffer "5 stitch" versions. I find they give the best support and are the most comfortable when there's some weight on them for long day wear. They do offer a couple of different widths and a number of different colors as well.
I suspect I am in the minority of folks who have done this but I have also worn out one of my own horse hide belts. The first one I made in fact.
Big caveat: I don’t maintain my belts at all. I have toxic salty sweat and these belts are subjected to that many days of the year here in the southeast.
I originally used bought their belt and I do find it good for certain handguns. As you wear them daily and over time they do get softer. I eventually opted for the kore belts because I had to make extra holes on the crossbreed belt, and crossbreed messed up when they did not align their holes with mine. Good belts though .
Otherwise, Bullhide is very good. I have one of theirs in brown elephant.
My favorite is this black elephant rig that "Big Rob" did for me.

No buckle holes, so infinitely adjustable.
Original Instructor Belt.
I have one that's almost 20 years old. Well worth the sixty bucks.
They are slightly stiffer and I can get 3:1 but I haven’t tried either of them out for an actual air extraction.
