New favorite CCW Belt

Hey all- so I was looking for a new gun belt and did the whole reviews online check and I ended up trying out an EDC belt by Kore. Its a new 2.0 version that just came out and it’s legit. I found the belt to be stiff but flexible and it has a really cool track system that is stitched into the back of the belt so I don’t have to find the right hole in the belt for fit-which was something I didn’t expect to find. I feel like it’s a reusable zip tie like feel which is perfect for the various adjustments I make based on what I carry and what clothes I wear. When my sidearm is against my waist zero sag or slag and I get a faster draw because the belt doesn't raise up when I pull-it really keeps my gear put.* The reason I'm giving them a shout out is because I carry daily and also use the belt* professionally and this belt is by far the most comfortable gun belt I have ever bought, worn or owned. I told my co-workers and showed them how it works and they bought a few also. Let me know what you think or what you wear as I’m curious if others have tried it out.*

Sounds nice, especially the adjustment. My carry is in my pocket, but I have a nylon Allen holster for it at the range . At a pound, most any belt works. Heaviest gun I have is my .22 SP, 30 ounces, and it's good on a Carhartt work belt.

Yeah the adjustment part is my favorite. I can’t tell you how it helps with different fits

Very interesting! Not a bad price.

I have a belt from Simply Rugged, single ply harness leather but it is getting pretty limp after 15 years. I also use a Double Duty belt from Cabella's thay works great and was reasonable but I don't see them listed any more. I just hate paying $100+ for a belt from the holster Mfgs but did spring for one from Fist for the wife and it is quite nise.

I have both Simply Rugged belts and one from Bullhide Belts. The problem is they shrink and then I have to go on a diet so they'll fit.

I bought my SR belt to go over my hunting coat so I have had lots of room to expand!

James, I was in a small restaurant today and saw a plain clothes Cop with his Glock and badge on his side. I called him over to our table as he was leaving and asked him if he knew about the KORE belt. He did not know about it. I showed him the inside of my belt with the 1/4" adjustments and he got very interested, saying he was tired of going forward and back an inch on his standard belt. He shook my hand to leave and I had to dig deep to give back an extra strong grip. I like a firm grip and give one, but this guy was a hulk.
I'm promoting this belt. I don't want it to "get gone" as we say in the South.

That’s epic man. Yeah I’ve used mine like an ole baseball glove and this belt is still like new. Glad you’re spreading the word since we both know how great these are.

Just saw that this review site listed top 50 belts. Thoughts on their review?

Fifty best? Probably aren't many more than fifty on the market anyway.

A gun belt is a matter of personal preference, so you can't pick one best for everybody. And, the belt you use depends partly on how you're dressed. The site does seem to give a lot of info for readers to use and help them decide. My one kick is that a "con" on a lot of the reviews is that "it looks like a gun belt". I don't see that in most cases, so I guess that's his opinion.

Myself, I don't have a "gun" belt. I wear a black Carhartt belt for work, and a brown one for everything else. It's just a heavy single layer of leather, no stitching to wear out. It works fine holding a holstered gun up to about two pounds, and I don't own anything heavier. I just use it at the range, as I don't carry IWB, either. My EDC is a NAA Guardian 32, and it fits in a jeans pocket, with a Sticky holster.

Looks like there was top #1 in a few categories. I have always wanted to join a few different competitions but never had the chance.
