The belt is well made and durable. It does an excellent job of holding up my heavy revolvers while hunting in the field. This belt effortlessly carries my 629 all steel 4 inch S&W 44 mag as well as my Ruger 44 special Blackhawk. Fully loaded both revolvers are well over 40 ounces and the Galco belt handles them with no problem. For EDC, it carries my all steel full size 45acp 1911 with ease. That also includes a spare magazine on the right side (I am left handed). I highly recommend Galco for anyone looking for a good gun belt. It makes all the difference in the world whether out in the field or around town.
