Gun Belts Attention: We will not accept returns on belts. Please measure carefully and follow the instructions exactly as listed or call me for help. Each belt is custom made based on the measurements you give me. They take a lot of time to make and I cant do anything with a return. There are just to many sizes and color choices. Thank you for your understanding.
The gun belt is one of the most overlooked pieces of gear in a concealed carry system. It can make or break finest holster in the world. The gun belt makes ALL the difference in comfort and concealability. If you only have the money for one or the other I would say buy a nice stiff gun belt and a less expensive production holster until you can afford a nice custom holster. That is how strongly I feel about owning a good gun belt.
My gun belts are 2 pieces of 8 ounce hand cut leather. The outside is dyed to the color of your choice and the inside is left natural. I then glue and stitch them together with the smooth side out on both sides, bevel and burnish the edges then seal the belt. The buckles are attached with chicago screws so you can change out the buckle for a personal touch if desired. The result is a belt built to last for years of everyday use. The leather I use is the same high quality Hermann Oak leather that I use for my holsters. It is tight grained strap leather, stiff enough to support your rig yet after break in, supple enough for all day comfort. After break in, my belts wont feel like you are wearing a hoola hoop and will conform to your natural shape over a short time. For your comfort, I can make your belt to the nearest 1/2". I normally include a total of 7 holes 3/4" apart with the center hole being the measurement you give me so if you would like something otherwise please specify when ordering. Each belt is made for you specifically so please be sure of your measurement! An optional stiffener is also offered as an option. Please call or email for more information and pricing on stiffeners.

DO NOT order your waist size or pant size. Please follow the measuring instructions below before you order.
Please make sure to take into consideration the belt material/type you are using now. Does it stretch? My belts dont. They are also stiffer than a more supple store bought belt. If in doubt be safe and add an inch to your measurement.
To measure a belt you use now: measure from the far end of the buckle to the hole you use most often (to the nearest inch). This is the number I need (to the nearest 1/2 inch). This will be approximately two inches larger than your waist or pant size. See Illustration above right.
If you don't have a belt use a cloth tape measure. Put it through the belt loops on your pants and pull it a bit snug. Note the measurement to the nearest 1/2 inch. If you wear an IWB be sure to allow enough room for that. Remember belts are not returnable.
My belts are firm enough to support most popular concealed carry firearms. If you carry an extremely heavy pistol on any belt and you don't buckle it firmly enough, it will sag a little. Remember this when deciding which hole in your current belt to measure to, especially if you are going to be carrying IWB. Put on your rig and adjust it to the proper snugness for secure comfort. Look at which hole you are using and measure from the end of the buckle to that hole.
A good rule of thumb that works for me is to order 3" over your waist size. That measurement seems to work well for owb and Iwb on my personal belts however, your mileage may vary. Please use your best judgement depending on your preference.
If you need any help give me a call and Ill walk you through it.
I want to make sure you are happy with your belt.
Buckle choices: Solid brass on left and chrome plated brass on the right.
