    I've been rocking a Liger gun belt from Maxpedition for the last 5 years. I've worn it daily at home and at work. For work, I'm a welder so clothing gets destroyed quickly. My Liger belt still looks new. I'll likely never have to buy another belt again.

    I switched to stretchy belts a few months ago and I'm never going back. It holds my trousers up fine but when i sit down it stretches so no belt buckle digging into my (rather large) belly

    I've been using this for the last several months and it is BY FAR the most comfortable belt I've worn in recent memory. Additionally, it's very thick which is good and bad. Good because it will hold a lot of weight securely. Bad because certain holsters do not like the extra thickness.

    I generally use a wilderness tactical instructor belt, unless I'm in dress clothes. Then it's a generic leather dress belt from men's wear house.

    Have a few belts, but my carhartt leather belt with brass (?) hardware has been going strong for very close to (if not longer than) 20 yrs.

    After looking into making my own, I see little reason to buy any ever again...for leather.

    Hanks Amish...
    Just gets more comfortable as time goes on, 7 years daily use and it's nowhere near used up.
    Maybe not as pretty as it once was but 100% functional.
    Excellent value.

    After years of Wilderness belt wear I'm giving the Graith Specialist a go -- very minimalist. So far it's working well! Unfortunately I won't be able to clip into a rope and be hoisted out of a hole like with the Wilderness belt, so I'll just avoid holes.

    Nice one! I just ordered one of their heavy work belts, 1.75" wide. But, I didn't see your style belt in their lineup.

    My daily wear belt is a 1.75 inch wide gunbelt from a local company. Quarter inch thick, one solid piece of hide, steel prong buckle held on by two Chicago screws. I don't currently carry, but the belt is nice for keeping my pants and everything i put on it where they're supposed to be without worries.

    My prior daily belt was a Weaver latigo pony saddle cinch made from Hermann Oak leather, cut down to belt size, with a plate buckle from a camp I spent some time at out in New Mexico. Still love the thing, but my growing gut doesn't agree with the plate buckle anymore.

    I've been wearing this since I purchased it. I was moving some things in my motor home, and found a box full of leather belts. There were a few new ones in there as well. Absolutely LOVE this belt! Ares Gear Aegis Belt (regular / original, not the enhanced belt. the enhanced was just a hair too thick for my HDS kydex holster);
