Been wearing a horse hide with internal stiffener every day for over 3 years.

Been thinking of getting one from Tucker to match the HF1 I have plus the internal stiffener sometimes is not fun to thread onto the HF1.

Here is a good guide to measuring.

Normally, yes but the Ares belts specifically, are measured differently and that's why I wondered. (Beltman, AG, etc use the "correct" method. :lol: )

My favorite edc I have to admit is an elephant hide from beltman .a little pricey but well worth the money

I agree with brucesw2. Spend the money on the beltman in elephant and you won't regret it. I've had mine about two years and it still looks brand new. Improves the draw for both IWB abd OWB.

I've used Tucker Gunleather belts for a few years. They hold up well & last a really long time. My issue is that since I started carrying, I've added quite a few pounds and then recently lost that & then some. So I've given away my fatboy Tucker & got 2 Blade-Tech Ultimate Carry belts (went with both the leather and nylon versions). I've come to appreciate the finer adjustments that you can make for fit with the ratchet belt system, but without the belt slowly loosening up throughout the day - which was my main gripe with the 5.11 nylon belt.

For non-leather, Spec-Ops brand Better BDU Belt, based and made here in Tejas:

Their photography is a bit lacking, as the buckle isn't nearly big as it looks on the site. For some reason, I've found my black and olive belts to stay more rigid than my coyote- I suspect it's the nature of the dying process. I use the Better BDU belts as they are more than adequate for an IWB G19, 2 mags and fixed blade.

I also have 2 of 5.11's Drop Shot belts:

The G-hook is nice, if I need to carry a couple of other things on my belt, or if the belt-loop spacing doesn't quite work with holster loops and the buckle. I don't find them nearly as easy to put on or take off, but I suspect that's a matter of having used the Spec-Ops belts for several years.
