Yeah, those look pretty good. Maybe I'll try one of those next.

The black ones are $63 now. That's the only thing holding me back.

I've been looking for a non-leather belt and I think a Kore is going to be the one. Thank you for the suggestion. They have a 10% discount if you sign up and make your first purchase, but I'll wait and see if there's a bigger sale on the next major holiday.

I just received two Kore belts. I bought a nylon carry belt and a leather “dressier” version to wear with khakis. I just made and am actually wearing the nylon one and I am quite impressed with it so far. I was playing with it with my AIWB rig and the ability to cinch it up tight to hold the gun against you vs letting it out a few notches to just hold your pants up is a great feature and works very well with the little release tab.
I don’t feel like the buckle sticks out any more than a regular belt and actually have the buckle at my 11:00 to not interfere with my holster, I think I am going to like that.
I like the idea of a ratcheting belt, but my Kore Essentials leather gun belt started falling apart after a few months (several cracks in the leather). I probably could have called them and had it replaced, but I didn't bother. For heavy leather belts, I'll stick with Armour and The Beltman with the holes 3/4" apart. For thinner belts, the Wilderness Tactical 5-Stitch Instructor belts have been great for me. I'll probably try another leather ratcheting belt at some point in the future if I can find one that's made in the USA this time.
Originally posted by nukeandpave: IMO my nexbelt isnt a very good gun belt. Not rigid enough. Just not in the same league as Armour, Beltman or Sparks.
I really like my Nextbelt. I've had it for almost 2.5 yrs. and gotten it soaking wet many times in the summers while tubing w/ shorts. My belt is still very stiff. For carrying my pistol and smart tool, I really like it over my previous belt which I thought was a good belt.
So, presuming your statement to be true, those other belts must outstanding. But if they don't have the ratchet belt system, I'll be sticking w/ Nexbelt or the often compared Kore belt.
