    Does anyone here have any real life experience with the ligerthane belts made by maxpedition?

    Liger Gun Belt

    It looks 'good' (non-tactical) & the product description seemed high quality, but I'd sure like to hear from someone who has worn one first hand.

    Some may direct me to read the customer reviews at the link above... I have. They read like they were written by the marketing department.

    Thanks.

    I found a couple of reviews for you.

    My review of the new "Liger" belt from MAXPEDITION - THR

    KTOG Forum - Liger gun belt review

    I'm actually in the market for another belt and it looks interesting. Not sure about wearing that buckle with 'dress slacks' though. Based on the photograph below it would look pretty weird.

    I wonder if the Maxpedition guys are Napoleon Dynamite fans? Does the belt provide any magic powers or nunchuk skills? :)

    I have been wearing one for about 3 years now. Very nice belt I think. No apreciable wear other than marks on the buckle from lifting steel at work. Works great as a gun belt as I have not found any holsters or carriers that will slip on the stuff.

    I do like the buckle kinda cool.

    Still cheaper to make your own and you know your getting real leather and not leather over cardboard like the off the rack stores.

    You can order the leather strips for a few dollars and you can put what ever buckle you want on it.

    Best of all if you are a belt size of 37.5" with out a holster you can punch/drill it for that. Strap on your holster measure and mark the 38.75 punch/drill and perfect fit every time. When you order off the rack of a belt that is pre-punched well the standard 1" or 3/4" spacing may not fit you.

    You also dont have to settle for 1.5" and you can match the color and size of your holster "My galco is 2" loops" my levies are 2" loops".

    There is not much tooling required razor blade andf a drill with some bits and a metal ruler for a strait edge Tanning and dyeing is not to complex lots of toutorials online. You can change the buckle for the occasion casual or dress and Best of all Made in the USA by you.

    Never use Rivets for the buckle use Chicago Type Screws, The keeper can be made to fit you from the excess you cut off the blank after finishing using a razor knife straightedge and a large sewing needle and nylon thread I used dental floss!
