I have three from A&G Gunleather. Two are from their "quick-ship" line of ready-made belts; one is a custom job that I actually bought used / like-new from another forum's classified ad section. Love 'em, and wear them even when not carrying on the belt.

I've used a C5 leather in the past and for the past year and a half been using an Ares Aegis Enhanced. I spend a lot of time outside and wanted something that could handle the moisture which is why I went with a webbing belt this time around. I've been nothing but pleased with the belt and the buckle of the Aegis doesn't scream Tactical like you typically see with the Cobra buckle style belts.

I have a Beltman bullhide that is now 10 years old and still going strong. But he appears to no longer be in business. His site didn't turn up on the search I just did. I also have a fabric Wilderness Products "Instructor," and it does have an advantage of infinite adjustability, but it doesn't work as well with the clip holsters I favor as the thicker leather belt.

IIRC, Armour Belts is run by the son of The Beltman. (someone correct me if I'm wrong please)

That is not correct. He is the nephew I believe of the original owner, not of the original Beltman.

RE: the Beltman- the site is active. He sold the company to a couple who as far as I know are continuing his standards of very high quality of service and product.

I used two 5.11 Tactical leather belts with the kydex stiffener. The kydex would eventually break at your belt hole and then get "floppy". Cannot recommend this product.

I then went to the Magpul Tejas belt. Also leather but with a synthetic kydex/plastic/whatever backer. Love this belt. Great hardware and is wearing very nicely. Works great as a belt and a gunbelt. I will buy another, no shocker that Magpul made a good product.

I support local businesses, and fortunately for me Filson is local. I've been using their leather double belt for years with no sign of it falling to bits anytime soon.

It's gone up in price a fair amount since I bought mine, but it's a grand thing that I likely will not have to buy another before I pass on to the Great Beyond.

Although many don't know it, Comp-Tac makes really excellent belts, with or without the kydex stiffener

Believe it's a kydex insert.
