    I've lost some weight and looking for a new 1-1/2 inch leather conceal carry gun belt. I currently wear a belt made by Beltman.

    I'll probably get a new Beltman, but wanted to see what you guys and gals like to wear in the leather gun belt category.

    Thanks mucho!

    I have both a kydex lined looper belt and a steel lined Bigfoot belt. I like the thin looper better, but it has not held up as well as the Bigfoot. The Bigfoot is truly twice as thick as the looper and about 70% more expensive.

    I have worn a Bigfoot daily for a couple years. It's still as sturdy as it was on day one. My Looper broke down fairly quickly.

    I've had very good luck with my two Loopers (black and brown). Had both of them better than a decade.

    My Beltman was good. My two 1-1/2” Armour belts have been better. I have the 5/16” Gun Belt and a 1/4” Casual. The 1/4” has the stiffener. The 5/16” sees the majority of use, the 1/4” occasional use. I need to order a 1-1/4” x 1/4” to use with suits.
    My Looper gave up with far less use than my Beltman.

    I have and use a Kydex lined Looper Leather belt from H&H. I've been wearing it for years.

    Although I usually use a Wilderness 5 stitch, I did buy a Horsehide Belt from Kramer Leather several years back for when carrying a heavier gun OWB. It is tough as iron. I think I could hang a circular saw off of it with no sag or droop. But, it's thick; and can be a PITA to get it through some holster's belt slots.

    I have had a couple of Looper Belts, both lined and unlined, and they all eventually cracked and split after a year or two of use.
