Still looking for the perfect carry belt

I made my own. I purchased a 1.75" wide by 50" long plain leather belt (the buckle was purchased separately) and then set out to fit it to me. I probably cold have saved money by purchasing a saddle cinch, but opted to do something custom just for me. I have always had an interest in working with leather, so I had tools and dye to decorate it. I've even made a couple of holsters so that I could have the "tilt" that I wanted. I'd encourage anyone of you to try your hand at it. It's fun and and saves you some money!

I have a steel cored belt from Alien Gear I really like some years ago. Got it on now. 1.5" sturdy and comfortable. Hmmm, I don't even know if they carry them anymore. Meh, still a good belt that has held up well over lotsa years. Carried both OWB/IWB items with nary a problem.

I had my belts made while working abroad. The maker ran a custom leather shop. While that won’t be helpful to you, what you may find of interest is that a piece of spring steel was inserted between the leather layers, right where my handgun rides. The results is a quicker, cleaner draw and less sag in trousers and belt.

My belts were made between 1988 and 1990. They are still going strong.

I recommend the steel insert. It helps.

Bigfoot Gun belts has this as an option as well as choosing the belt thickness...
