Ever since I started using this belt, carrying even a full size 9mm pistol has been much more comfortable. This belt doesnâ€™t flex and it looks good with a pair of jeans even just to wear around town. Itâ€™s very helpful to have a belt that helps support the weight of your carry gear and itâ€™s also nice to to support an American company when you can. Those 10 dollar Walmart belts are just not adequate for carry gear. Also the shipping was prompt and the pocket constitution in the box was a nice touch.
