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.

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.

A really quality product, delivered quickly and with great service. Mike patiently answered my questions and then promptly delivered on what he said.
The only "problem" I had was the packaging... It was so good it took a bit of work to get into it, but my items sure weren't going to b damaged in shipping :-)
It fits great and looks good in casual or a suit.

First off a huge thanks to Mike and Tracy for providing an unsurpassed level of customer service and product. All of my questions were answered quickly before making purchase. The belt itself arrived quickly for a handmade product and the fit and finish was absolutely perfect. Having worn it for a few months it is very comfortable even with full reinforcement for OWB Carry. Very ridged and supports all my carry gear perfectly. I would absolutely recommend this product to all those interested! As others have stated, truly a better belt! Thanks again.

This is my first gun belt but as far as quality goes this is first class. I was contacted twice through e- mail and once by phone and that was at 9:00 pm their time, it like they never stop working to make your belt just like you want it. Never buying a cheap belt again. Thanks Mike and Tracy!

This was a great purchase. Fits jeans and most khaki pants fine. Enough flex to make putting on and taking off no problem. A bit snug on some of the khaki pants, however, but not any that I would need to wear a holster with.

MIKE AND TRACY DID A WONDERFUL JOB TO HELP OUT A LOT IN SIZING. BUILT THE BELT IN JUST A COUPLE DAYS. BELT LOOKS GREAT AND FITS GREAT TOO. THIS IS MY SECOND BELT I HAVE GOTTEN FROM THEM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO MAKE YOUR BELT. THANKS TRACY AND MIKE!

I wanted a 1 3/4" belt for a new holster that I'm having custom made, and immediately returned to A Better Belt for that choice.
Excellent quality, perfect size, great finish, and very fair price.
