    I am looking for a good gun belt. I have a wilderness tactical synthetic belt, that is fully adjustable, but it is so ugly I never want to wear it.

    I would love something similar that looks less like military gear, but is as sturdy. That in mind I am thinking I need to go leather. I would like to find someone local that makes good quality gun belts. Searched the forum, but not finding the info I am looking for.

    Any recommendations? I am not dead set on local, but I would prefer it. (Local being the Portland metro area)

    If you go leather make sure it has some kind of insert. I started with a high quality thick leather belt and never could get it to stop stretching. Spent about half as much on a Wilderness and couldn't be happier

    I use Carrhart belts as gun belts. They are well made, wide and thick and very reasonable in price. I have never had a problem with stretch. They also have a large selection of long belts to fit my expanding fat storage system!

    Loopers makes a great leather gun belt. It's 2 pieces of leather with a piece of kydex sandwiched between. I've had mine for about 5 years and it still looks great! You can get them through Loopers directly or through Blade-Tech. The Blade-Tech one is made for them, by Loopers. Same awesome belt though!

    Try out Fat Boy Belts. They are great, especially for those of us with a little gut.
