Default Looking for a new gun belt

I would appreciate some recommendations for a new gun belt. I would prefer a leather belt. I have a heavy duty belt from Big Foot and it's great, but too thick. I don't think I need a steel core belt, unless there are thin steel core belts available. I carry a CZ Rami IWB. Thanks.

Default Looking for a new gun belt

For a lighter gun and low-profile belt, I love Grip6.

Iíve also used it with an OWB holster with full-sized handgun and weapon-mounted light. There is enough rigidity without being excessively stiff.

I recommend the Tactical Belt or Workbelt Series.

I like Nexbelt EDC, very comfortable. Thin but very stiff and can handle my full size 1911 SA TRP full rail without sagging.
I can a good fit from adjustable ratchet.

Because I wear a suit/sport coat almost every day, here's MY carry belt.

Works with jeans, too.

This is by far the best gun belt on the market. I own several and I am very happy with them. You will not regret buying one. The leather belts look great and are very strong!

Default Belt for CCW.

I'll weigh in with my 5-cents recommending a good looking, high quality functional belt for CCW: Aker Leather (Aker International, Inc.).

Here is their link: https://akerleather.com/belts/off-duty-belts.html

Can be purchased online at Amazon, Aker website, etc.

Nexbelt EDC is a lot easier to adjust when you go from standing to sitting, and the adjustments are in 1/4". Very comfortable.

I use a abetterbeltusa.com

He uses a nylon 66 liner instead of steel.

Been thinking of getting an ostrich belt from him.

I have been using a 1.75" belt for last 10 years of carry. Just a regular "uniform utility basket weave print all leather made in USA. $30

I dont like the 1.5" unless I have to wear a suit and loops are not big enough for 1.75

I wear 99% of the time- untucked flat cut Hawaiian(Tori Richards) shirts for work though: )

Hanks.
I have two. One I wear everyday for the past 6 years, the other is for competition. I expect them to last between 200 and 300 years.

Another vote for Kore. No more thick leather belts for me.

I wear the belt everyday for the last 6 yrs in all conditions outside and exposed to a lot of wear. Wore out my CB minituck; that is to say, I broke the Kydex part when I hit the ground when it was empty. Sent it back and received a new replacement at no charge or shipping fees. They stand by their products IMO.

Hanks Steel Core. Double 11oz leather with a steel core sewn in. Supports anything I carry. Excellent customer service. Check Amazon, eBay or their online store. A good gun belt is not cheap, a cheap gun belt is not good.

Another Kore vote. I've got a Kore and a NEX-Belt. I much prefer the Kore; it supports my XDS (with Kydex AIWB holster) much better.
