The importance of the belt in you carry system cannot be underestimated. Most belts are designed to support only the weight of your pants. The gun belt should be made out of tough dense leather and should be lined with leather. The total thickness should be at least 1/4". My belts are reduced in thickness slightly in the buckle and tongue area to make buckling easier. In choosing which belt model is best for you, start by considering the weight of your pistol and additional equipment. A wider belt will give the heavier equipment more support. My belts are equipped with solid brass buckles.
Have you ever noticed the “kink” that develops in the rear of your belts? This is because your belt was cut in a straight line and is trying to conform to your body. The distance around your waist at the top of your belt is slightly less than your waist size at the bottom of your belt. This accounts for the bend or kink. The kink is also caused by the pants loop in the rear pulling down on your belt when you sit down. The solution is the contour curved belt. It took years for any designer other than Bruce to adopt this method for pants belts although it had been done for Western rigs for years. Once you’ve worn a contour curved belt, you will find the straight cut belt noticeably less comfortable especially when the weight of your pistol and magazines have been added.

Belts CANNOT be exchanged, should you get the measurement wrong!
Please provide me with an accurate measurement from a currently worn belt that fits well: Measure from the hole the belt is usually worn in to the point at which the tongue strikes the buckle – this measurement is the belt size you should order and is the most accurate. It is a rule of thumb that your gun belt is 3” larger than your pant size to accommodate the holster and magazine pouch.
