I need to get me a good one as well. I bought the stiffest cheap belt I could find, lasted about a year.

I have been very pleased with Cabela's Double Duty II, which I acquired on sale for $19.95.
Gee, I'd love to see your data!

Rick Garcia. Info can be found on his website.

I have been using one of his belts for about 9 months and love it. Mine is double thickness and double stitched cowhide in a basket stamp finish. It is super stiff, fits well, and really holds up a holster containing a 1911 Commander size pistol.

His prices were better than several others previously suggested but his quality is EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!

Jerry Bissel

I am a recent owner of my first gun belt. I did what I'd consider some in depth research. Spending $100 for a belt just seemed extreme to me so my objective was to fine a less expencive option that was just as good.

I first purchased a Ranger Belt from Daluth Trading. The belt was reasonablly priced. Probably somewhere around $40-50. While this is a nice belt and stronger and thicker than any other belt (dress belts) I own, It was not the GUN BELT i was looking for.......

My search led me to Jerry Bissel. i think.

Reasonably priced and appeared to be well constructed. I was concerned about taking the right measurement for jerry to work with. I was really hoping i didnt make it too short or too long.

Placed the order and within just a few days i received an email from Jerry with the shipping information. The belt came in and MAN am I surprised. You can just about hold this belt straight out. To say this thing is strong is an understatement. You could lift a car with this belt. I love the double stiching. I love the strength of the buckle. It's not cheap. I love how thick it is. I love the 7 holes to accomodate any form of carry. IWB, OWB, or nothing at all.

My Girlfriend won a belt from one of the WELL KNOWN companys that reatails in that $100 range. Her's came with a kydex insert as well. While her belt is a nice looking belt and will serve her well, it's no where near as heavy duty as my Jerry Bissel Belt.

I also like the Ridgid Holster suggestion. I almost went with them too, but I'm not sure it's as strong as jerrys either and just liked his look. I think I will try Ridgid Holster the next time in need a hybrid leather / kydex IWB holster though because I like the way theirs look.
Thanks Jerry.
