Most people overlook this critical component of concealed carry.
A belt is just as important as your holster. For security, accessibility, comfort, and ease, you must get a good concealed carry belt.
What To Look For in a Concealed Carry Belt
You’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about and researching your perfect gun and holster. Now it’s time to think about your belt.
A concealed carry belt must be thick and it must be firm. It needs to be made of leather (or a very thick, heavy duty canvas for casual/tactical wear), and has to have been expertly crafted.
You will be looking at a belt that is about 1.25-1.75 inches wide and could be.25 inches thick. Overall, a very thick, heavy belt.
Make sure the buckle is not overlooked. It must be as high quality as the rest of the belt to keep everything in place and not break.
The Purpose of a Concealed Carry Belt
First and foremost, a concealed carry belt is to keep your holster rigid.
When you need your firearm, you are going to go by instinct and draw. If your belt is not strong enough, your holster will pull and warp and come with the gun to some degree.
