Purpose Built

Built to support plainclothes duty or covert operations, our 1.5” Leather Casual Belt was engineered with direct input from undercover officers in the field. This handsome full grain leather belt appears inconspicuous, but we've included our unique Permastiff™ insert to provide enhanced stability to support the weight of your sidearm, as well as a hidden cuff key keeper located at the center rear. Reinforced stitching and an I-beam buckle provide lasting durability that stands up to rugged use. Black belts utilize a nickel-colored buckle while brown belts utilize a brass-colored buckle, and both styles feature a subtle 5.11® logo stamped at the lower left.

Love the belt, recommended


From Christopher


I own this belt in black and brown, for about 6 years now. The black looks almost like the day I bought it and the brown is finally getting replaced.

I broke the Kydex insert by loosing a lot of weight and the amount of belt I had to force through the buckle and loop finally snapped the Kydex. So I'm buying another one.

For those who complain about the dye rubbing off, if you polish your belts like you polish your shoes the dye will hold up, that is if you actually polish your shoes.

Dyeing your belt


From Cobbler


I haven't purchased this belt yet but for those saying the dye isn't good, here is what you can do. Having been a shoe repairman for 39 years, I feel I can tell you how to make that finish much better. Go to your local shoe repair shop and buy a bottle of Lincoln brand dye in brown. It will darken the leather but be a rich brown tone. Do it in an outdoor or garage environment so as not to fumigate family members. The odor is strong but very tolerable. Put two coats on allowing 24 hrs. drying in between coats. After the second coat let dry as before. You'll see a bronze casting look on the belt. No worries. Just take a clean cloth and rub it very well. It will be gone. Let the dye cure for several days before wearing and feast buff it prior to wearing. The fibers are now totally penetrated with the color, not top finish dyed. When it shows wear down the road repeat with one coat. Hope this helps someone.

2 Belt Purchase


From DamianJ


Permastiff insert inherently flawed causing cotton stitching to break/separate leather halves on belt.

Not Good Quality


From reese2


Had belt about 2 months and wear daily. The area where I draw the belt through the buckle show signs of the dye wearing off as it is cracking. I have other "gun belts" I've had for many years and never showed this type of wear until they were very old. Cheap Chinese crap. No more 511 gear for me. Hope no one's life depends on it!

Fantastic belt


From callbacknull


Have had this belt for 4 years now and it's been the only belt I've owned. Fantastic belt that's held up longer than all other belts I've owned before it. Leaving this review because I'm finally back to order a few more.

Stiffener broke after 3 months


From 220combat

from Ohio

After using this belt for concealed carry for three months the stiffener broke at the hole I use and in the first couple of weeks the poorly stapled leather that holds the tail of the belt was broke.

Well Worth the Money


From Casey

from FL

I wear this belt most days. It's very sturdy and has a nice, clean look. It supports my full size concealed carry weapon and in two years, has not sagged with carrying nearly every day. I have one of each color so I can wear it with most outfits. Only downside I have had with the belt is that the insert will break at the hole you use the most. It doesn't limit the functionality of the belt, but it looks a bit funky if you use the next smallest hole. Cuff key is a bit difficult to get out of the holder, but you can get it out with a little wiggling.

Solid Belt


From Robb

from CA.

I use this belt when I wear a suit to court (couple times a month.)

It holds my holster tight.

The color wears quickly. I wish it was solid color all the way through as opposed to surface dye.

Very Impressive first 2 months


From Amore

from Dublin, Ca

This thing was truly built like a tank, and nothing i threw on it could possibly bend it. Having pistol holsters, and vest straps, knife sheathes, flashlights, and dump pouches all on it at the same time, and it stood sturdy. Even having a 130LB girlfriend hang from it couldn't budge it, and my belt and pants stayed firmly in place. My only gripe is that after a couple months of wearing it continuously tight (I fell between the small and medium sizes, Got a small, wore it at the largest setting) the stiff insert inside seems to have broken, and now it is more loose, and slightly less stiff. All in All, I still love it, but I may have to buy another.

Have had 5 of these belts......

easily scratched with holster clip or cellphone case clip.
