Gun belts Login/Join

I have been carrying a gun almost every day since 1995.
I have never owned a real gun belt.
Recently I bought a new Light Tuck holster for my new P320. At the same time I ordered a gun belt from Vedder.
I can not believe the difference between a cheap leather belt and a reenforced gun belt.
My gun does not sag at all.
I am looking for a gun belt for my daughter.
Not sure if a reenforced gun belt works the same for a woman. With all the different curves.

I’d look at The Beltman too.

The shape of women's hips require a belt cut differently than a man's cut.

I have worn a Beltman belt in double-layered bullhide almost daily since 2006 and haven't felt the need for extra reinforcement. Even after all this time it is still plenty stiff for gun and accessory carrying. Eventually, any belt will conform to one's shape. I don't think it would be any different for women.

I had the same realization about 3 or 4 yrs ago. My first was a Nexbelt. I really like the ratchet buckle system.

From carrying a duty gun for 30 years I quickly discovered that separating your firearm from your pants belt was the hot setup when ever possible.
I now use a Alien Gear belly band.
One belt holds my pants up, the other supports my firearm and places it wherever I want it.

Love my Hank's belt and I've had it for years. Excellent quality.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

For concealed carry use, I really dig the Tenicor Zero. No Velcro, no giant buckle, no super rigid insert. It's stiff enough to support a reasonable sized gun OWB or pretty much anything IWB/AIWB.

Probably the most surprising design I've ever seen.

Another Beltman customer here. I have had 4 belts from them in the past 10 years. I beat the heck out of my belts. I just got a horsehide belt from them several months ago and it’s the best belt I’ve ever owned. Going to order another one soon.

Another Beltman fan. Just bought my 2nd. My 1st is 18 years old and still usable for pants but not holsters (the back of it is getting cracked, so slipping it into holster slots is making it worse).

Neither have reinforcement it isn't needed.

I own two Beltman belts and they are fantastic. I have a physical job and it's hot here in FL so the belt takes in a lot of sweat. I don't know what this will do long term but I can tell you that one of the belts is 3 years old and doesn't show much sign of deteriorating just yet.

A friend just gifted me one of these KORE belts and I've been tinkering with it. Not much time with a gun clipped on it yet, but I think it's a very cool design and they offer less tactical options. Incremental adjustments are nice and it seems well built. You trim them down to your belt size so you dont need to be worried about buying the right size.

Get some Obenauf's Leather oil and the paste version from Beltman or Obenauf's site.

I have use it on my Beltman belt for the same reason, humidity and sweating and mine have lasted over a decade and still going.
Great stuff.

Sure isn't unanimous.

Tried to order a belt from him to match some boots I had coming in. He answered e-mail fine but when I asked him for a picture of the leather to see how dark it was, he said look at the pictures the customers posted.

Seemed kind of flippant to me so I didn't order from him. I'm sure his business won't hurt without my money, though.

The first gun belt I bought was from BeltMan. I had a lot of questions, and he was very patient and answered them all. However, I think that you are dealing with a different person. I believe that the previous BeltMan sold the company and the non-answers to your questions are coming from somebody other than the "real" BeltMan.

I have belts from BeltMan, Ryan Grizzle, Wilderness, and Armour. They are all great, they all do the job. Aesthetically, I think that Ryan's are the nicest looking. Functionally, they all work fine, with one note: If you are using the belt for an OWB holster with a heavy gun, like maybe a P220 ST, the Armour is probably the strongest in terms of keeping the holster where you want it to be. IWB, doesn't seem to make that much difference.
