    I still can't believe it, but it seems I've misplaced my Milt Sparks belt that I've worn daily since 2006. my belt. I'm pretty sure it'll turn up but I can't wait for it, so I guess I'm in the market.

    Which belts have you tried and liked? Which belts have you tried and didn't like?

    LOL!!!

    I don't know! The mfg's name is worn off, it's so old! I do remember that I bought it at Shooters Service Center in Saint Johns neighborhood of PDX. It was under $45. Another place in Portland (well Tigard) is Ted Blocker! Can not go wrong with TB!

    i like my 5.11 belts. after a couple years they lose their stiffness though. i want to get a double layered belt with a metal or nylon band between the layers... any suggestions?

    My belts are made by a cow.

    I had a 5.11 for a long time. Now I'm using an HSGI with cobra buckle.

    I ended up ordering a cheap Water Buffalo belt from Versa Carry ($45). It looks like a very well-made belt but it's incredibly thick!

    Realizing that I still needed a black belt, a got in on a deal for a Kydex reinforced belt from Hank's Belts ($72). It's a bit thinner, also very well-made.

    Unfortunately neither of these compare to Milt Sparks I misplaced, so when I lose a bit of extra around my midsection and come in to some cash I think I'll end up ordering another one. These will definitely work until that happens.

    5.11 tactical belt works nicely for shooting and EDC. Use it for years.
