Good EDC belt??

Post by Danielk » Wed Sep 07, 2016 9:56 pm

I'm in search of a good edc belt that is not leather. There is so many and I was seeing if anyone has found one they really like and recommend? I will be carrying a 1911 most of the time.

Not leather for me is The Wilderness Original Instructor Belt with polymer lined for a little more stiffness. This is the only non-leather belt for EDC I have tried and with great results. It last forever.

Leather if you change your mind for me is always The Belt Man.

I'm now using the Midway USA Instructor Belt.

It's every bit as good as the Wilderness Tactical or 511 belts I had and only costs $20.

Got a Hanks for about $40 shipped. High quality, very thick leather.
100 year warranty, I will start looking for a defect around year 99. :smilelol5:

I got the 5.11 basic TDU belt because it doesn't have all the gizmos like rappelling hooks and Velcro tabs and the like -- just a basic synthetic buckle. I've not paid over $15 for any of them. I wear one every day, and they have lasted a long time (years), still going strong.

I purchased the Ares Gear Ranger Belt a few months ago and don't regret it at all. It's a bit pricey, but the difference it made was amazing. If you are looking for a non-leather belt, I'd advise you to take a gander at this one. If you are looking for stiffness, this belt is about as stiff as it gets. I also carry a 1911 and this belt has made a significant difference in comfort.

We used to have a page that listed the abbreviations and the translation. This looks like a good place to repost it.

Talking about belts. I ordered and received a new gun belt from Tucker gun leather today and MAN! This belt is as thick as a 2x4 and just as stiff. I'm breaking it in starting tomorrow with my Tucker holster. It took two hands and a foot just to loop it thru the holster holes. It should last at least until forever if i take somewhat care of it. I love it! Tucker sure makes great produces.

I've wanted an Ares enhanced for quite some time but the sizing scares me a bit... no one sizes off pants size and that's all they list. Can you offer any insight to the sizing and what kind of adjustment range you have?

ETA- Sorry for the hijack, but rather than PM, I thought the OP may benefit from the answer if he's considering an Ares.

Here is a good guide to measuring.
