All versions of this belt are of supreme dress belt quality in both appearance and build. Our comfort and quality levels are unsurpassed. Please review the Stiffness Level descriptions below. The second keeper shown in the photo is our snap-on keeper and is detachable and not necessary for the functionality of the belt.
Non Reinforced - This is a dual layer belt of approximately 7/32" thickness (just under 1/4"). We use 6 - 7 oz. drum dyed leather for the front and 6 - 7 oz. full grain leather for the liner. We call it Limited Carry because is it specifically designed for compact and sub compact pistols carried in a dual belt clip, IWB Hybrid style holsters only. For full size pistols or single clip IWB holsters, please upgrade to our IWB version.
IWB Reinforced - This is a dual layer belt of approximately 1/4" thickness. This belt will easily handle any size firearm in single or double clip IWB holsters. It is also good for sub-compacts and compacts with extra magazines OWB style. We use 6 - 7 oz. drum dyed leather for the front and 6 - 7 oz. full grain leather for the liner. A 1/32" thick strip of Nylon 6/6 is hidden between the two layers of leather to eliminate the possibility of "sag" while retaining the highest comfort levels possible. You may opt for the reinforcement to extend into the sizing hole area.
OWB Reinforced - This is a dual layer belt of approximately 9/32" thickness (just over 1/4"). This is the belt designed for carrying all of your gear. We use 6 - 7 oz. drum dyed leather for the front and 6 - 7 oz. full grain leather for the liner. A 1/16" thick strip of Polypropelene is hidden between the two layers of leather to eliminate the possibility of "sag" while retaining the highest comfort levels possible. You may opt for 1/32" thick Nylon 6/6 reinforcement to extend into the sizing hole area.
Three Gun - This is a competition stiff belt, and may not be comfortable (for some) for all day wear. This is a dual layer belt of approximately 9/32" thickness (just over 1/4"). This is the belt designed for carrying all of your gear. We use 6 - 8 oz. full grain horsehide for the liner. A 1/32" thick strip of Nylon 6/6 is hidden between the two layers of leather to eliminate the possibility of "sag". The reinforcement includes the sizing holes unless you request otherwise.
Our internal reinforcement is designed to restrict up and down movement with a minimal effect on wrap around stiffness. For a stiffer wrap around, we recommend our Three Gun stiff level with horsehide liner (also great for supporting drop-leg gear). Horsehide liners are only available for sizes up to and including size 50.

The craftsmanship is impeccable. The internal reinforcement dual layering and dual stitching is amazing. Better in all regards than western style belts I've seen at local farm and ranch outfitters. Only thing that comes close was my duty belt. This belt holds my G19 and G17 in place at 3:30-4 O'clock solidly giving me the confidence to IWB full frame pistols. I should also state this belt is better than competitors that go to SHOT and claim to have the market cornered. Nothing beats small shop craftsmanship and A better belt delivers.

Very good finish, highest possible quality, well thought out design in every detail specially the strip of the PP* layer between leather layers. Sufficiently rigid and there are no need to draw a very tightly around the body. It is therefore absolutely easy to carry around the clock. Highly recommended to everyone!

I have purchased three belts from a better belt and I will be ordering more as the need arises. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the products and I really like the ability to pick the features that I want in my belt (color, stitching, spacing of belt holes, etc). I have purchased belts from other vendors in the past, but these are by far the best belts I've purchased for their price. Keep up the great work.

It really is a BETTER belt. It is sturdy enough to carry my full-size semi-auto without bending or sagging. It is still comfortable enough to wear all day without feeling like I have an iron band around my waist. The workman ship is wonderful and the leather is top-notch. The customer service is exceptional. I even got an email asking what buckle I wanted when I messed up the order! This is my first gun belt and I am really glad I got a BETTER belt!

I was looking for my very first gun belt. Thankfully I came across a better belt usa. It was one of my best purchases of my life. I'd highly recommend to others. Comfortable and amazing!

I recently purchased one of your Ultimate Gunbelts. I can say that I am extremely pleased with it. The craftsmanship and quality are amazing. I could not find another belt maker that offered the options and the pricing you do. It is a much higher quality belt than I expected. I have been showing it to the guys I work with. The large majority of us carry when we are in an off duty status. One of my co workers has another brand belt that was about the same price, I won't list the brand, but your belt outshines it in every way! I am ordering a belt for my wife as soon as she decides on which one she wants.
Thank you for making a quality product that is well worth the money! Thank you for supporting the military and law enforcement community as well

I just received my second Ultimate Gunbelt from Mike and Tracy. Cannot ask for a better product. The belt is super comfortable while also being extremely strong. No stretching or sagging under the weight of any pistol.
Mike and Tracy are wonderful to talk to and will go the extra mile to assure your satisfaction.This is the only place I will ever buy a belt!

After searching reviews for A Better Belt, The Beltman, Bullhidebelts, Crossbreed, etc.......I decided on my local Texan and couldn't be happier after 3 weeks. For what it matters I ordered the Ultimate Gun Belt in Cordovan with the IWB nylon reinforcement (( I carry a Glock 27 and go larger from there with this belt )), and it makes it feel like I'm carrying nothing at all...Mike and Tracy run an outstanding business (prayers for Tracy's surgery BTW) and are very meticulous with what they work on and send out. I'm very happy with my decision and will be looking to get the gorgeous Deep Grain Black dress belt when $$$ allows...Thanx for the awesome awesome belt guys !!!!

So I can't very well wear a tactical belt to work in a suit or really want to advertise either. This belt is definitely first quality and also dressy enough to wear with a suit or slacks. Great sticking and solid belt buckle. This is not a cheap belt at all and couldn't be happier. Also want to take a minute to thank Mike for taking the time to help me chose the right belt and the right stiffness level. I love small companies who 'can do' for their customers and would absolutely order from them again. There is no mass market companies who will ever make a belt this nice.

Thank you Mike for your help in choosing the options. This belt is truly an example of honest hand crafted quality. I look forward to years of service.
