Looking for a new carry belt. 1.25" this time Login/Join

I asked this several months ago and was shown the Graith Specialist belt. I love the belt. I wear it as much as I can with zero issues.

My only issue is the width. I need another one thats 1.25" wide. My dress slacks I wear 4-5 days a week for work don't fit the Graith well without wearing them out.

I would like as small of a buckle as I can get. The Graith is perfect in that aspect. I like the velcro too.

Any recommendations?

Thanks SF

It's a traditional belt, so no velcro, I've been using two Kramer double-thick horsehide 1.25" wide belts, for well over a decade.

Once or twice a year I got them with leather due to keep them looking good, for when I wear suits.

I've been using a 1.25" horsehide belt from the Beltman for the past few months. My EDC is a Beretta PX4 Compact with one spare mag. It's worked out so well that I haven't used my 1.5" belts in quite some time. While mine has a buckle, they do offer a velcro option, I believe.

Look at Nexbelt. I have one and its excellent. Some of their EDC belts are very dressy.

I have one of Mike’s 1.25” belts (along with several of his 1.5” belts) very happy with it.

Here's a second vote for the Beltman horsehide belt. I'm very happy with mine.

I think any of the quality makers will work fine.
My 1.25" cowhide belt came from The Beltman over a decade ago and is still looking and working fine. I use the Obenauf leather treatment on it once or twice a year and that seems to keep it in great condition.
I have a couple of like new spares I've bought over the years when they've popped up on eBay but haven't needed them yet and at this rate, should be a lifetime supply.
