Looking for a quality gun belt for concealed carry, but don’t want to spend a fortune? 5.11 may have just what you are looking for.
Available in brown and black, the 5.11 Leather Casual Belt offers a sturdy platform to attach your holster to, while keeping a casual or dress-down appearance. The 5.11 belt has a simple, yet attractive buckle and the leather looks good. Most importantly, it has a stiff, reinforced piece that runs on the inside of the entire belt that makes this an excellent belt for concealed carry.
I purchased my 5.11 Leather Casual Belt three months ago and have been very pleased. It looks good with jeans, cargo shorts, or Dockers-style pants. The best part is, it has carried all of my handguns in a wide variety of holsters very well. The 5.11 belt doesn’t shift around, rather, it anchors the holster right where you want it.
The 5.11 belt has a small pocket on the inside of it that can hold a handcuff key or something else that is very small. I don’t know if this will be of value to many people, but it does not interfere with the belt’s normal use.
I have used my 5.11 belt daily for three months and it has very little wear. The leather still has it’s original finish, and it looks almost as good as when I bought it. I highly recommend you consider a 5.11 Leather Casual Belt if you do not already have a quality gun belt. It works well, looks good, and is reasonably priced.
2013 Update – It has been several years since I bought my first 5.11 gun belt. Since that time, I have purchased several more and use them regularly. For a casual or semi-dress belt, these work very well. They do a very good job of holding a gun in place and keeping your pants up. The prices tend to be affordable. I highly recommend these belts if the style fits with your needs.
