I am using NexBelt EDC for the past year and half and loving it, very thin but stiff holdup all my carry guns.
I used to run Hank, Vedder and others, these are all great belts but I now prefer the ratcheting from NexBelt.

I will be adding a few more later this year. Nothing wrong with the two I alternate currently but just want variety.

I have tried many gun belts over the years. Most are decent but none as comfortable as the nexbelt.
Easy to adjust when sit, stand or ride in a car.

Since my first nexbelt, a dark canvas one for Jean's, I have added a black and also a brown. Both dressier styles.

I have carried pocket, strong side at 4 and appendix, and the nexbelt is comfortable in all positions.

My name is not Donald J. Trump, but I am sure he would approve of this message.

Are you using the Nylon or leather version?

Thanks for reminding me to get another NexBelt to go with my three others...

I have both the EDC and dress versions.

They give me all of the holster (IWB, OWB, Pocket) support I need, and they are comfortable without needing to be cinched too tight.

They also don't scream gun belt, like some of my traditional gun gun belts do...

I have Nylon, black leather and bond carbon.

Leather and bond carbon are for business suits

As GlockN’Roll mentioned, the leather and carbon don’t look like gun belts.

I use Kore, not NexBelt, so I can't speak to the brand. I can say that since going to a rachet belt I will never go back to an old fashioned buckle. Rachet is the way to go.

Yes, use it for golf, for dress and for carry.

I got my first one a few years back from a calgunner at a gunshow and immediately became sold on ratcheting belts. I will never go back. My first one finally wore out after I dont know, maybe 2 years or so and I bought a new one. I guess things had changed a bit over those two years because the second one I got seemed even better (it was the same model and style as my previous one). And it has held up a lot better too. Had it for probably a year at this point and it still looks and behaves as new. I feel like this one is stiffer than the first one which is a plus. I wear it every day regardless of what I'm doing or carrying, including hiking, hunting, shooting matches, etc.

I use belts from Vedder, steel core belts from Hanks and Daltec Force; very good belts but they’re very thick.
Try Nexbelt, they’re thin but stiff, I’m sold on the ratchet.
You have to try them out.

Nextbelts are great.

The cheap ones at Ross and on amazon not so great. It’s the most comfortable belt you can own.

Started with "traditional" belts but found that the NexBelt was head-and-shoulders above these. I'm all in favor of "ain't broke, why fix it," but for comfort, and carrying different holsters with different pants/shorts, the 1/4" increments of adjustability seem to be as good as it gets, a balance between durability and comfort, with not a lot of trade-offs.

I'm not the only one who would say this:



For sure NexBelt will have some Black Friday deals; try it, you may like it.

I have 3 NexBelts, they make a great product and if you poke around their website you will see a Pro America theme to some of their products. Their HQ is in Ranch Cucamonga I believe.

If the belt is for EDC, I recommend the Titan. Plenty stiff and it’s strong enough to hold some weight. The ratcheting system is the best part, the micro adjustability makes it very comfortable.

Started with the Hanks belts, just conventional leather gun belts with conventional buckles. I have two. Not bad, but once I tried the NexBelt, I stopped wearing the Hanks. I have two of the NexBelts as well, and it is the only belt I wear now, particularly for IWB. Been awhile since I bought, but IIRC they have various kinds of buckles, some rated for guns, some not. EDC buckles, something like that. The buckles used for the gun belts have set screws inside that you screw down into the belt material, so it never separates from the buckle. Great belts, totally agree with Officer Gregg. The best $65 (or whatever it was) that I spent for a gun belt.

Just my opinion.
A good holster with good clips doesn't need a fancy belt.
I just use a good belt that is the right width for my holster.
My G17 down to my G42 holsters works with the same belt.
I can't remember the last time I bought a new belt .

Yup. OWB with a big handgun and a floppy cheap belt makes the gun print much more. It might work OK with a small handgun and a rigid IWB setup, but the bigger the gun, and the higher up it rides, the more rigidity one needs from the gunbelt. So if you want to get the most from your CCW money-- a range of various handguns carried in various ways, to suit your weather and your preferences-- a stiff, rigid purpose-built gunbelt is the foundation, and quality holsters only add to that.

Put an order in and I'm looking forward to it, but I'm not impressed with their service so far. My belt was in stock at the time of order, but wasn't shipped for 3 days. That was 2 days ago, and the tracking # still says DHL/USPS is waiting for the package. A little frustrating.

If I recall not all the belts they sell come with EDC-rated buckles (meaning, suitable for supporting a gun). The EDC-rated buckles have the set screws to help hold the belt in the buckle:

I received one as a Christmas gift and I've been using it for two days now. I'm liking it so far. The ability to fine tune your belt throughout the day is reminiscent of when I was introduced to stretchy Levis. Pure joy! I'm going to be buying another one in brown on DVOR.
