Very happy so far with my Beltman belt. This is my first from them. It is the perfect replacement for my old one by a company no longer in business. I prefer the 1.25” double stitched type. This time I included the stiffener. I’m not sure what it adds, but vertically, it is quite stiff. Horizontally, it wraps just like any good gun belt.

Now the fun of breaking it in to fit my body and laying flat at the buckle!

I have not tried it with a holster yet, but I have no doubts it will support all of mine just fine.

I have three of them. A 1.5" bullhide, a 1.25" bullhide, and my most recent is a 1.25" horsehide double-stitch. They all work quite well. The bullhide belts I've had for probably 7-8 years and are still going strong despite minimal care.

I currently use my 1.25" horsehide belt for carrying my PX4 Compact. Works great.

I have two Beltman belts; one black and one brown that are going on 11 years old now and going strong.

I actually wear them with everyday clothing armed or not, everything except suits where I have trouble getting the belt through the smaller loops.

After getting used to these, any regular belt feels so wimpy and inadequate now!

Great belt. Mines a 1.5" distressed leather. Don't get distressed though. Somebody just takes a scribe or tool and scratches randomly around on the leather. Don't see the "distressed" option now?

I have had mine since circa 2006 and haven't been able to hurt it.

I bought a black and a brown (both quick-ships) about 5 years ago and they have been fantastic. As a bonus, he’s local to me so I’m also supporting a local artisan.

I've had a couple of 1.5" black bullhide ones for about 15 years now. Couple years ago I picked up a 1.25" one with the velcro strip in it, planning to buy a holster with that type of clips. Never got around to buying that holster, but the belt still works great.

I've heard that they recently changed ownership but the quality is still the same. Haven't been able to confirm it but the one I bought years ago is as good as new.

Yes, it happened a few years ago. The new owner apprenticed under the previous owner before the changeover. I have belts from both periods and the quality is still excellent.

Just got my first Beltman Belt. I purchased a distressed American Bison gunbelt and is a great belt, with excellent workmanship
