I had the same question as I had been using a cheap leather belt from when I was in high school.
I was seeing all these guys on here wearing gunbelts and I was like...... Really? 50$ belt
After having a hard time keeping my iwb glock in place I decided to try one and let me say OMG.
It makes a huge difference and makes carrying much more comfortable.
I bought a Tactical Trainer, made by 5.11 Tactical, I got it from optics planet.com 40$
It's so much more rigid and stays really tight
