    For y'all that carry IWB, how much larger in the waist size do you buy your pants???? Just got my CTAC, and I either need to lose some weight, (which I do) or jump up a size or two in the waist.

    That's the question........I normally wear 32" waist pants.......do I got to 33" if I can find them, or go to 34" which is much more "findable"!!! I need to get a couple longer belts now also!!! Thanks!!:cool:

    Depends a little on what your carrying but I went up 2 inches and it works out fine for IWB w or w/out spare mag carrier.

    I buy my trouser at 38" in the waist. I wear a 37" but they are hard to get and the 38's work well. Depends on size of pistol and holster.

    I'm a 33 inch waist that has always bought 34 for comfort. Works fine with no adjustment in size. C-Tac, G27, 4 o'clock.

    Ever notice how many people are an "in between" size? 40 is too tight but 42 sags a little.
