Not cheap, but very high quality. I've got one that's 10yrs old and going strong.
I've got one of his belts--IT'S AMAZING.

I went looking with a similar shopping list last year, and purchased a belt from Bullhide. I'm completely satisfied with it and would buy from them again.

I got many recommendations for a purpose-built reinforced "gun belt" but opted to not get one because I don't need the torsional rigidity required to support a holster. Seems like overkill if your application doesn't require it.

For the same reason, I opted for one of their 3/16" thick models rather than the 1/4" thick one. It's still very stout, I can only imagine the 1/4" model is like a leather baseball bat.

Belts...

I have 2 from this place and love 'em - thick and good quality. Might not be as nice as the Saddleback but they're also only $30!

I think I'm gonna go with the Amish ones. I'll get 2 for less than 1 of many of the others.
Thanks, Larry

Belt I'm wearing now is ~30 years old... dunno' who made it.
I think in another 10 years I'll probably be wearing suspenders...

You can get more from a specialty maker, but check prices.

I bought a belt from Structure 16 years ago. Actually thinking about it, I got it as a free promo. All leather, plated bronze buckles. Has been through salt water and cold...with everything in between.

I'm a fan of many things in the DTC catalog, the "Lifetime Belt" is no exception. It's a fine piece of handiwork and is breaking in fine after several years of weekly use.

A little searching turned up Saddleback Leather's Old Bull and Bullhide belts - several modes.
Anyone have a good quality, lasts a lifetime, belt that they'd recommend. 1.5 inches is the width I'd like/need.
Thanks
Where's the KLR in all of you? He said LL Bean, guaranteed for life (If you're ever unhappy......).

Send it back and get another one, and another one if necessary.
