Looking for a quality belt, a duty/gun belt is not needed, I just want something to hold my pants up. Tired of buying box store china crap and want something nice that will last.

I prefer the stretchy woven ones..helps me when im bending and streching, working etc.. plenty of room for the 12 pack abs.

Try looking for a place that works on tack and saddled. They can probably custom make you a belt. Or if there are any craft type markets in your area you might find a leather worker at one. I get my belts made a by a local leather worker that has a stand at the weekend hippy market.

Cabela's sells a belt they call "double duty" that is two pretty darn thick layers of leather stitched together for +/- $40. I have been wearing one daily for a couple of years and despite the fact it is chinese production has held up very well. It replaced a belt that I spent more than twice that on having it made at a saddle shop.

Filson belts. Had one for two years and still hasn't stretched out or become misshapened. Mine is the standard model, not the double thickness. I balked at the price at first but it's well worth it.

I have one from A&G Custom Gun Leather that I wear almost daily, carrying IWB. Shows almost no sign of wear. A very good value at $70.

Another choice: Fox Creek Leather. Great belts. Not double layered like some of the other belts suggested.

High Noon from high noon holsters. Mine has kevlar inside, made in FL. You can get them without kevlar too.

sorry for the GD BS but i had to do it!
in all seriousness though, High Noon's belts are top notch, as the previous poster stated, they also do horse hide leather which is superb! i own several holsters from them and they are #1 for leather work, although the custom holster turn around time is a bit lengthly. if you choose High Noon (which i hope you do) i'd consider giving them a call to see what the time frame is on the belt. hope this helps!

I like Filson gear and my belt is no exception. Great, solid belt over a decade old.

This is the link to my wife's uncles outfit. (yes, this is a plug - but the work is VERY nice)

http://www.sherersaddlesinc.com/leather.html

He makes standard stuff, but also really high end saddles and gunleather (think movie star type stuff).

Just spent last weekend with him - he's a nice guy to boot.
