    I need a good belt that is sturdy enough to carry a belt slide type pancake holster off duty. My nylon 5.1.1 belt just ain't cutting it. Would like something that is sturdy, will look good with a suit and tucked in shirt if needed, but comfy enough to wear under a t-shirt. Oh yea, and I'd prefer to not have to pay an arm and a leg for it if I can help it.

    Any suggestions????

    Beltman seems very popular. I've got a couple of Dillon Precision gunbelts, a Bullman belt, and one from Andy Artoonian when he was still making them. But now-a-days you've got a ton of good gunbelt makers.

    Wilderness 5 stitch, galco concealable, or whatever belt they sell at tucker gunleather. Bianchi sells composite belts (leather outer welded to polymer innter) that are pretty cheap and perform well.

    I have one of the Galco leather ones...has held up great and looks fine with dress clothes and jeans.

    Before that I used the 5.11 dress belts, which are a leather laminate type material...they last a few months before all of the leather starts scraping off.

    Beltman.net is the way to go, you can get it with an internal stiffener if you think you really need it but he make some outstanding belts. Bull hide to elephant and others.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I currently wear a Safariland model 830. Thicker and more rigid than most belts I have used but still has a nice, dressy gloss to it.

    I have been using a $12 leather belt from Old Navy that I bought back in 1995. It has held a Glock 32, HK USP Compact, and HK P2000 just fine for years. It's held up so well, I have been using it under my duty belt for the past year or so (I hate using the nylon underbelt with velcro). Debating getting another one next chance I get to hit Old Navy.

    BTW, all the comptac belts have internal stiffeners.
