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 - 7 oz. drum dyed leather for the front and 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 belt is very well made and sturdy.
I screwed up on the sizing and they fixed it/replaced it no questions asked. I tried to pay for their troubles but they refused!

The belt is made to perfection. I am very satisfied with my belt. The wait time was not bad at all, they under promised and over delivered. Two thumbs up.

This is the best gun belt I'be had and I've had a few. Great service, comfortable. Supports revolvers very well from LCR's to a 4" 686 IWB or OWB. I will buy another.

I recently found this belt maker on another sight (Garrett Industries LLC *****) with a few holsters I w was buying and decided to check their sight out directly. I would have to say this was a life changing move on my part. I am retired military, slightly over my BMI (38" waist) wanted a good concealed carry belt but one that would also be exceptionally well made and aesthetic. I am a business professional and CC about 80% of the Tim eat the strong side with FBI half cant.
Now about the belt: I went with the ultimate gun belt with reinforcement IWB, not including the buckle holes, brown leather, double black stitched, Black died edge, nickle buckle. It showed up and I was immediately impressed by the quality of the craftsmanship and materials. It is a thicker belt with the reinforcement but in no way am I trying to imply that it is too thick. It is perfect. I have worn it now for a month and a half about 75% of the days and it is just now truly breaking in. It was comfortable right away but now it has really become a blessing. I have horrible lower back problems and found myself strapping down the old $60 belts so tight they were adding significantly to my back pain. I have found that with this belt I can leave it looser and still have the holster sit where it should without repositioning it all the time and my pain level has decreased by almost half at the end of the day. I only wish I could get the " The Perfect Fit " Style but it would interfere with my CC position per their description.
Bottom line, is that if you want a belt that you will most likely only have to buy that color one more time in your life for just a few dollars more, this is the company for you. The ultimate gun belt is just that but it is also very stylish, and I wear it with suit and tie almost 5 days a week. I will not be buying another 4 or 5 belts (colors) from here. Now I need to decide whether to stick with the ultimate or try another one. That and the next color will be my toughest choice.
I next to never put my email in a review when I take the time to do one but I feel this strongly about this small business owner, quality, made in the USA that I will be to give anyone who has questions the chance to shoot me an e mail. Ok, so I am using a gmail versus my business, but still I will reply. Forgive any typing/grammatical errors if the program didn't pick them up. I have already taken more time than usual for this type of thing.
Thank you for an exceptional product. Well worth the 2 weeks or so it took to show up at my door. I tell everyone I can about "A Better Belt" at risk of slowing the delivery of my next few orders. Oh, and if you want an exceptional Custom Kydex out, leather interior holster (or 6 in my case), check out Garrett Industries at www.giholsters.com.

After talking to mike we decided for my build I needed the ultiment belt.let me tell you when it came in it was much more than I expected and I could not believe how easy it was to carry a full size 1911 with this belt. I was using a 511 instructors belt but that was a joke compared to the comfort of this belt. This belt with my brommaland iwb holster is the easiest way to carry my 1911 I have ever tried period. Can't explain how good both are you will just have to try to see. I'm glad to see people like these who care about their work and take the time to help you pick what's best for you . If in doubt go ahead and buy you won't be sorry. Thanks mike
Note from Mike - Doug actually got the Perfect Fit Belt

I just received my belt after returning the belt I originally ordered. I wanted changes to be made and dealing with the A Better Belt USA has been an AWESONE experience!!! I would buy another belt just so I could experience their wonderful customer service! (I can't think of another company I can say that about.)

I couldn't be happier with this belt; fit, stitching, velcro, color, stiffness, everything is great! Top notch service from Mike, the man was very patient with all my questions and answered all my emails promptly. Finding a good product these days can be rough, good customer service even rougher. He's got both. I've already told a few folks on base and after we get settled in at our next assignment I'll spread the word some more. Thanks again!
