Belt for IWB Holsters

Just wondering what everyone looks for when getting a good belt for an IWB Holster. I just ordered a crossbreed for my p250 2sum (both fit the same holster) and was wondering what type of belt to look for. I picked up a Browning belt at Academy for $20 that I think will work because it is fairly stiff, but just wondering what else is out there that is worth the money.

Thanks!

I look for double layer bull hide with a preference for the 1.5 inch wide models. Most leather gun belts will run anywhere from $70 - $100 for a decent belt.

Many holster makers offer a belt suitable for carrying the weight of a handgun day after day without curling over. A proper belt is the key to comfortable and secure carry.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably give this Browning belt a try since it was only $20 and I was needing a belt anyways. If it don't work I'll probably get one from Crossbreed since that's the holster I ordered and they're actually based about 10 minutes from my house.

I almost gave up on IWB until I got a good gun belt. You will find that for real comfort and for the gun to feel secure you will need a good double thickness very, very rigid belt. It seems decent ones start at about $40-50 and go up from there. YMMV!

Good luck.

I bought a blackhawk CQC belt and while it is not leather it is stiff and they come in different patterns. Aligator, carbon fiber, smooth, etc. They are so stiff that they will hold open your pants when you lay them down. They run a size or two small so if you order, get one a little bigger than you normally would.

Thanks for the info. I will probably see how this Browning belt works I already have, but that carbon fiber belt looks sharp and I may have to order one.

Ditto on the Blackhawk belts. I have two of the them and they hold up great and do not sag or lose their form over time. I'm a big guy and belts tend to stretch or roll around the curve of my gut. Neither of these belts have. I would recommend the belts even without a gun attached.

I have the CrossBreed belt and have been very happy with it. I wear it everyday whether I am carrying or not.

I use belts from A&G Custom Gun Leather. They are the best I have ever used. High quality at reasonable prices. They are gun belts that look nice and can be used with casual or dress attire.

I recently found some 5.11 tactical riggers belts that are 1.5" and I would think these would work awesome. Currently I use a Spector 1.75" riggers belt and it works fantastic because it's double thick (very sturdy) and I'm not limited to hole positions. It's Velcro so I can get a perfect fit every time. Also, leather belts, in my opinion, tend to bend and shape differently after some time of wear. I've had the same cloth belt for 2 years now and it still has the same straightness as when I bought it. A 1.5" belt would also help me with threading the belt through my pant loops. Sometimes it's a pain getting a 1.75" through those tight suckers.

I would have picked one up for myself but they were out of my size at the store.
Hope this little bit of info helps.

*edit: the cost of the belt is $40

My EDC setup is a Wilderness Tactical Original Instructor Belt with a Milt Sparks VM-2H Horsehide in black for my Kimber Ultra Carry The belt has been just fine for the last couple of years, and about $40.00 dollars no brainer

I'm in the process of looking for an IWB or OWB to carry my P238 Sports 12 for work, I don't want to carry in the pocket.

Hope this helps!
