I purchased a blackhawk cqc belt in February of 2012. I needed a good belt to support my full size 1911.I wear a milt sparks vm2 imb holster. Being low on funds I thought this would be a good purchase. About a month of wearing it, the "leather" started to peel back. I recently bought a beltman belt to replace the cqc. It cost almost 2 1/2 times more, but I'm hopeful it will be more durable.The beltman belt seems to support better than the cqc belt .
