Go to a police supply place they have all kinds of leather belts plenty strong enough to hold all kinds of crap. They come in all kinds of styles and colors for the detective crowd and last forever.

My brother does leatherworking on the side. He makes good stuff, a bit pricey, but it should last a long time.

I ordered a belt from the Amish belt maker on ebay for $32.00. I should be to me by next week. I noticed that Saddleback Leather has some discontinued stuff, including belts, in the Dave's Deals section. One can save 10-25% if they have your size. Belts there now are a bit too big for me, but look good for 25% off retail.
Thanks for the recommendations, Larry

You probably can't go wrong with Amish made goods.

I usually pick up a couple belts when I go to Mexico. They last about 5 years, and my old belts always get used to hold duffel bags on the bike.

Amish belt

I received the Amish made belt from the fleabay seller mentioned in this thread. Great quality belt, thick, nice buckle, well worth the $31.00. I think some of the other belt sellers mentioned - Saddleback, etc., get twice as much money for what cannot be twice as good a product. Thanks to whomever put the link to that seller in this thread.

I've never worn one out, just needed a different design (to keep the wife happy). I have about 15 years of wear on these two and they both function 100% (always carrying a Victorinox Multi-tool, 9 oz.). Infinitely adjustable. Very strong. No holes to wear out. TSA friendly unless you're getting the full scan.

I also figure in a pinch I can use them to bind just about anything (first aid, broken bike parts, whatever).

Only drawback, I sometimes snag the buckle and it unlatches. Doesn't bother me though.

Was reading this thread, wondering if anyone would give kudos to Duluth Trading Company. I agree with the lifetime belts. Own one in both black and brown. Rock solid construction.

I wish that Geiger & Willis were still around. Lands End purchased them and ran the brand into the ground although, to be honest, while they made great clothing, the modern era company wasn't managed well either.

Anyway, they made a rifle-sling belt and I purchased one in the mid-90's. It's the only casual belt I own so it's worn almost daily.

The closest version I've found is from here:



It seems to be very, very similar to the G&W version.

Here's a good article on the history of G&W if you're interested. It's a shame that brands like them and Abercrombie & Fitch (the real Abercrombie & Fitch, not the fucking store in the mall that sells t-shirts) are no longer around.

Yeah, that place in the mall doesn't have nice engraved double rifles in .375 H&H.
