Great belt for concealed carry


From John


I needed an everyday best that would support an IWB holster and not loosen. With CCW you need a proper belt and holster. Everyone seems to think you need a tiny gun but NO. Don't kid yourself. This is the proper belt. I use it with a Hidden Hybrid with two polymer J clips. It tightens up, velcros secure. No problems with carrying. Love the belt

Great Quality Good Fit


From Donkey


I wear size 40 jeans and ordered the XL (40-42) belt and it fits perfectly with 5" that goes past the 1st belt loop.

At the bottom of the product page they warn that these run small and I would have to agree. This belt size is perfect for jean size 38-40. If you wear 42 jeans, then order the XXL.

The buckle tightens up nicely and the belt is thick. I prefer the trainer model as it is 1.5" wide and easier to fish through belt loops. I ordered the charcoal color with the satin finish buckle and it looks sharp. You could wear this with khakis and it would look more professional than the all black version.

Took 5 days for delivery.

4 years of everyday wear


From PK


I bought this at a local retailer 4 years ago because I wanted something better for CCW. I didn't expect for it to hold up like it did. I carry every day, and was amazed at the fact that this belt lasted 4 years. In fairness I could still wear it but the velcro is starting to wear out and I wanted to try one of the cobra buckles. Not much more you can want out of a belt.

Love this belt but...


From Alaskan Shooter


I have one of these belts that i wear everyday, and have been for 2 years now. 5 STARS!!!

BUT living in Alaska i would like bigger sizes for winter competition shooting. Wearing Bibs or a one piece jumpsuit, in the winter time is a must to stay warm when it gets to below 0 with a wind chill. I have made do by getting to belts and placing them together. but would really like bigger sizes.

best belt ever


From Jesse


ive had this belt for a few years and it is as strong as the day i bought it

Listened to reviews..purchased size to big


From somefatguy


Fat guy here, w/ no *ss...wear size 38 and conceal carry. One Review suggested get 2 sizes bigger( 2xl) especially if you carry (makes sense).. it almost fits but not quite, soft velcro gets snagged on buckle,cant snug up..have to now go through the bs of exchanging. chart suggests a L, im going with an Xl should be just right. Disappointed I didnt go with my "gut"..no pun intended..Dont read too far into reviews...belt looks amazing just as advertised.

No sagging gun


From DougC


I bought this belt originally for the pistol range in lieu of leather belts which get wet and soggy during hot TX summer. You still sweat but at least it easier to dry out later. Now I wear it all the time as I wear a heavier gun for EDC (concealed) and a 1/1/4" leather belt gun belt is not ridged enough to hold up the gun. Also the traditional leather belt is a challenge to get it into the correct notch; either too loose or too tight. This belt lets one pull as tight as needed and hold it in place with the hook/loop. Wear different trousers or accessories on belt you can easily adjust. Most important to pick the right size so check carefully. It takes a little longer to get the belt on/off especially if you add accessories of one sort or another but it is worth it once everything is in place.



From Harry


This is a heavy duty, tough, belt. I had problems shopping for the correct size, like others have stated. Here's what I did.

I went to a local sporting good store that I knew had 5.11 gear in stock. I wear a size 36 waist pants. My belt, using another mfgs. sizing method is between 41, and 42 inches. I tried a size LARGE, and it was going to obviously come up a little short for my use. I switched to the 2XL, and got a perfect fit.

Very Happy with this purchase of the Trainer Belt.

Great Belt - Sized Small


From Steve


This belt seems very well made, but I will have to return it, as it is too small even though I followed the size chart. These belts run a size small.

Love the Belt ... Hate the Sizing Option


From Merlin

from USA

I love everything about this belt, except for the sizing options. Why would you offer such limited sizes? S 28"-30", M 32"-34"

For proper fit, the velcro hook should fall in the middle of the velcro loop portion on the belt. This would allow adjustment in either direction, depending on whether you are using an IWB holster or not. With this in mind, optimal sizing for the small would be 29" and 33" for the medium. That's a 4" variance in sizing. That doesn't work for someone who falls in the middle of these size range.

Unfortunately, I fall in between size options. My current belt measures 31" from contact point on inside of buckle to current hole used.

With the small size, the velcro hook on the tale of the belt just makes contact with the velcro loop on the belt with no room for adjustment.
On the medium size belt, I have to tighten the belt to where the velcro loop part of the belt comes in contact with the buckle. The problem is the tale of the belt is so long it wraps around to the small of my back???

This can't be the first time you've heard this complaint. Unfortunately my only option is to return the belt and shop a competitor who offers 1" increments.
