Nylon belts for carry?
#1
I'm looking for a nylon belt that is good enough to support a Ruger SR9c in an owb holster at 3 o'clock. The reason I want nylon is because I want something that can be easily adjusted. My stomach area is still a little sensitive because of my diverticulitis and I have to loosen my belt when I sit down and tighten it up when I stand up/walk/etc. Do you guys have any recommendations? I would need a belt with a 1.5" width, preferably black.

Right now I am looking at the Easy-Fit Original Instructor Belt by The Wilderness. I see they have a good following online. If I went that route, I would pay the extra $10 for the polymer liner.

I have both the 5.11 operator (1.75) and trainer (1.5). Both did a good job with my Glock 27 OWB. I also carried a full size m&p 45 OWB with no real complaints. I believe Cabelas sells both sizes if you are in a rush to get it now without waiting for shipping.

5.11 or a Woolrich nylon web belt are about as good as you're going to get. I've got a few of them and they're the switchback kind. Recommend the metal buckle, because it's metal. Mine are plastic, they never broke, but I would suspect metal would be more durable long-term.

I find them to be pretty comfortable, but I only wore them when I was wearing my BDU's, and also overseas when wearing them with civvies was pretty normal.

They look out of place in jeans or khaki's, IMHO...but that's just me.

Will the Woolrich hold a Ruger SR9c (it's similar to a M&P9c) securely? Also I wear my shirts untucked with my jeans so nobody would really see this belt.

Probably as well as any web belt could Smile

The 5.11 is more stiff I believe, but I have a 5.11 belt that is much more soft too--and they're the same 'model', and never washed.

All in all, they're wider than most leather belts so if a leather belt will hold it I'd be shocked if either of the two web-belts I mentioned wouldn't.

I was also considering the Last Chance Heavy Duty - 1.5" belt. Cabelas puts its name on the same belt, but it is Bison Design who makes them.

Quote:Last Chance Heavy Duty - 38mm Black $24.00
- Inspired by the belts used by Wild Land Firefighters and Smoke Jumpers
- Double Layer of 38mm Nylon Webbing, reinforced with 12 feet of sewing
- Strong enough to carry a full range of accessories, tools, and radios
- Sturdy Velcro closure
- High strength aircraft aluminum V-ring buckle
- Buckle has a black Oxide Finish
- Also commonly referred to as Trainer or Instructor Belts

I personally wouldn't get them with velcro, but that's me. A mil bud of mine had one, and he hated it--but I forget exactly why. I think because it was loud when opening it to use the bathroom or the velcro stuck to his clothes or something. Like I said, I can't remember but it was something odd that I wouldn't have thought of.

I'd get one that matches your waist size so it doesn't have too much overlap.

I went with the 1.5" 5.11 double duty belt (black/coyote). I bought it off ebay for $22 + free shipping. I'll let you guys know what I think when I get it. It's shipping from California, so it might take awhile to get. Thanks for everybody's input!
