Carry Belts

Just ordered my second 1/4" thick belt from BullHide belts
https://www.bullhidebelts.com/
This is my 3rd belt from them and I've been thoroughly please with the quality of their other 2.
Prices aren't bad either.
(3rd belt is an nylon belt, that they no longer carry)

No connection with them, just thought I'd pass it along if anyone's in the market for a new belt

    They do have very nice stuff!  I’ve pretty much given up on leather gun belts.  Nowadays I live in .511 reversible nylon belt.  For mid $20s they are a great deal and since they are reversible (black/kaki) they are very versatile, and the one I have on today is about 10+years old and still looks new!

    An often overlooked part of toting a handgun around...my Ross Leather double thick bullhide gun belt is over ten years old and still does the job...

    511 doesn't make things in my size

    Yes sir, a good belt makes a HUGE difference, especially when the weight of your CCW increases

    Got my new one yesterday. It's every bit a quality piece of leather as my first one

    I use an Ares Gear Aegis for EDC, but one of my dress belts is a steel lined 1.25" wide Bull Hide belt. I am very impressed with the quality for the price.

    Found myself on a camping/hunting trip a couple years ago.  Managed to bring the hunting pants beater belt, but forgot to pack the go-to-town belt.

    Found myself in the local K-Mart and bought a Dickies 1.5" wide x 1/10" thick basic, Made-in-Guatemala black leather strap with no stitching other than the essentials at the buckle end.  Paid about 20 bucks for it as I recall, and it's worked as well or better for EDC than anything I've had that's marketed for the purpose.

    I just bought a 

    Industrial Strength Leather Belt from Dickies.

    It seems strong enough for a carry belt and is quite comfortable. $20 plus shipping.
