I have been using a belt from High Noon Holsters for several years. Very high quality and looks like it will last another 5 years....

They use two layers of leather sandwiched around a stiff plastic insert. Absolutely no sagging of the belt.

The Magpul belts look interesting as well.

Belts with inserts can be at times too stiff. Bull hide and horse hide makes for a good belt, check out "The Beltman" makes a nice belt. Also having a belt that is tapered especially a 1.5" wide can help a lot to mold to your waist. Check out the design Milt Sparks use's and you will see what I mean about a tapered belt.

What size belt are you looking for?

I've purchased two belts from these guys, and have been very happy with them.

well I got my belt from bigfoot belts. they sent me the wrong one . waaay to big. at first they wanted me to pay the shipping back but I attatched the email they had advised me which one to buy and then they changed their tune and are sending me another without returning the original. I complained about the shipping charges too. so basically I get to keep the too big one and they are sending me another. really nice stiff belt. nice buckle. but the snaps aint the greatest and the loop that is behind the buckle for the tail is between the 2 snaops..theyre too close together I told them. but I did get some good customer service and the belt seems real quality for the most part.

I got an ackers comin also from amazon so ill see how that deal goes. itll be here tomorrow
im the other gary...

its a 42. I got the right size and its a 38 and I wear it in the middle hole. they sized me for an iwb when I told em owb but whatever. if your wearing it as a reg belt youd better be at least a 42. or a 38 if youre going iwb ..maybe a 40

the ackers belt is a lot nicer dressier belt but the bigfoot is a serious 1/4 thick belt. my phone cl;ip almost wont close over it.

either one is a very high quality belt but id give the dress belt to ackers and ill be wearing the bigfoot daily
