American Holster Company is proud to announce that we are now hand making a 1/4″ thick 1 1/2″ wide double thickness belt that is glued and stitched together to provide the best quality belt possible.
These standard belts work Great for those with waist sizes under around 44″ when the belt starts to get longer than that the belt should be stiffer yet.
This is why American Holster Company also offers a Poly reinforced two layer 1 1/2″ wide belt as well. If you are larger around the waist or carrying a very heavy gun and especially if you are carrying in my High Ride you should consider this belt.
Not all Gun belts are made equal there are places selling 1/8″ poly reinforced belts and saying they are gun belts this is not true the only thing the poly on a belt this thin will do is keep the belt from stretching length wise not from twisting under the weight of a hand gun.
A good test to see if your belt is stiff enough is to hold it out and see how much it will sag under its own weight. The picture is of my standard belt and a belt advertised as a gun belt but is only 1/8″ thick. (Note the belts are the same length.) The second picture is of my standard belt holding up a Midland holster with out any extra support.
When you order your belt please make sure you tell us the size of your belt in the comments section.
To determine your belt size:
If you don’t normally carry IWB and are ordering a Invisi-Tuck holster please add 2″ to the measurement.
