I have gone to Kore essentials primarily for the ratchet system. I have 3 of their 1.25 in dress belts (not for serious carry except in a pinch); and 3 1.5 inch gun belts (2 leather and 1 nylon - the nylon gun belt is a stiff a belt as I've personally ever seen.) They are so easy to re-size as you sit, stand, after dinner etc. I also have bigfoot and can recommend that as well, but it is not ratchet. My carry load is either SIG P365, or as large as G19 (with extra mag) - so nor large or very heavy metal guns.
