    There are a couple of specific threads about various belts (gun-belts, leather belts, nylon belts, etc), so I thought I'd start a consolidated "all things belt" thread.

    Here's a cool new kick-starter for a startup belt company:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/manliestbelt/carry-less-adventure-more-survival-belt



    Currently, I've got a Wilderness Tactical Frequent Flyer and a Looper Leather (w/kydex) belt. I think I've still got 5.11 Instructor belt and a field belt somewhere, but I pretty much use the Wilderness exclusively unless I have to dress up (then I go with the Looper).

    What belts do you recommend / own / want-to-own?

    Today, I am rocking the KT Gun Belt 2.0 Terramax3300 it's pretty stiff and doing a good job of keeping my pants up. My go to belt is the "old bull belt" from Saddleback.

    Rafter S did good work for me, but I find myself using the Maxpedition LIGER belt the most. Highly rec. the Liger for use and abuse, unless you need or want to make a statement with your belt.

    Again EZ, I think we are twins seperated by birth.

    I too wear my Wilderness instructor almost daily and my Looper on dressy days.

    I have a Crossbreed and a 5.11 Instructor belt for casual wear. The only problem is when I wear a suit or slacks-the Crossbreed is too wide to fit through the loops. I found a handmade belt in Branson that is reasonably stiff. It works fine for lighter pistols, but I wouldn't want to carry my Springer steel frame 1911 with it!

    Next gun show, I may track down Al Holoppa (sp?). He may have a narrow belt that is a bit better.

    For a leather Kydex belt, Looper. I have three, two are a paisley western style. The other is a tan dress belt. Rock solid. Kudos to Patrick for the custom paisley 1911 holster to match the western belts!
    For nylon, I have an old Uncle Mike's instructor. I wish they still made them that well. I also have a 5.11 that is only meh. Too flimsy with no support.

    I have a "thick" wilderness, a normal wilderness, a galco knockoff, a new UM instructors, and an Old style UM I got from OA about 13 years ago, and that one still convinces me to roll with it on some mornings.

    Come to think of it, mine almost that old too. I bought mine at OAS as well.
