A somewhat specific request. I'm looking for a belt for edc for a full size handgun. The belt must be 1 1/4 wide and allow infinite adjustments. So far, I'm only seeing the wilderness product. Any other suggestions from the all knowing hive?

Just because you can,
doesn't mean you should

I would call Beltman or one of the other quality makers and ask if they can add holes between or make them closer. Seems like a small issue to do.

I’ve gotten away from the ‘double-belts’ & prefer a single layer of thick leather.

1 1/4” is enough too, easier to deal with on any pants. Of course, with a heavier gun, a strong belt is essential.

Thanks for the suggestions. I might try sizing one of my traditional buckle belts. I have a punch so I should be able to get close.

Armour Belts offers 1.25 in belt options and you can get the holes .75 in apart for room to adjust.

To the best of my knowledge, they do offer an option of seven holes 3/4-inch apart instead of the usual five holes one inch apart. What is really needed on leather belts is some kind of f ratcheting mechanism. I have heard of such belts but don't know about their quality or if they are stiff enough to use as a gun belt.

Bullhide makes a belt that uses Velcro instead of a metal buckle.
The Velcro on mine is still going strong, although I don't wear it every day.

ETA: Just checked their website and it looks like it's in 1.5 inch only.

Beltman belts are the best. I use them for everyday use even when not carrying.
