Belts.... Many of them.

So, I received a free belt for review here in June.  From Kore Essentials.  They call it a EDC belt.  

The thing most people don't do is spend as much time researching and testing the holster and belt they use as much as they do the handgun.  That is sad, as they all must work together well.  Obviously belts such as these really are nice, but not up to the demands of hanging a handgun off of them:

   



















My goto belts for OWB and IWB work well, yet scream "GUN" to those that know and are not quite as stylish as this belt.  


















See what I mean? 

So the first thing of note on this belt is the lack of holes.  Second is the ratchet release on the bottom of the buckle.  The belt comes ready to fit any waist from "24 to "54 inches.  Cut at the desired length, attach the buckle and you are ready to go.  















I am also told the buckle can work in a pinch as a bottle opener, but I have not tested that =) 

Being able to adjust the belt in 1/4 inch increments gives me a bit of tighter control in adapting between OWB and IWB carry as opposed to traditional belts where I usually have to punch a hole where I need one.  

See what I mean?
























I find this belt to be up to the task for handguns up to 4 pounds.  

A truly ingenious design and well crafted.  I recommend if you are looking for a carry belt to at least try one of these.  

*I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.*

  1. Hm. I see that both my belts are wearing out just from normal usage.

  2. I'll be curious how it holds up. Both the buckle AND the belt itself...

    2. I used a nylon-reinforced from the NRA Store for years, until the price went too high. Now I use a heavy, latigo leather belt which holds up almost as well. Full-size 1911-A1 is my daily carry, mostly OWB. Looking forward to your further reports on this new one.
