    This thing is heavy, and this 511 belt I have is alright, but I can tell it won't last long....

    I was looking at the Comp-Tac belts, but I wanted to get some opinions first. So halp :hs:

    Wilderness 5 stitch works great for me.

    Comptac belts are so fucking thick, love mine, leather loops are kinda a pain because you pretty much have to leave them on the belt to get them to stretch to put them on.

    I have Beltman bullhide & Wilderness CSM.

    Wilderness gets more wear since it is easier to adjust and is generally easier to get holsters on because it is slimmer. Its rare that I need to tuck my shirt in so I don't need to worry about looking like an overgrown boy scout.

    Beltman gets worn anytime I tuck.

    I have one of the no-taper 1.5" Comp-Tac leather belts. Also have a 1.5" Wilderness 5-stitch.

    I like both, I use the 5-stitch with "working" pants (cargos, bdus, etc) and the Comp-Tac (which I got in Chestnut, IIRC) with things that a black nylon strap just looks out of place on: jeans, slacks, that sort of thing.

    Seems to work out okay, generally.

    I have a galco cop belt and its worked so well I threw away the old piece of shit I had and wear it everyday :bowdown:

    like garandbobcat said, I've also heard good things about the 5-stitch.

    I use a comp-tac 1.5" no taper belt every day. It is great.

    "heard" good things? Broseph, I wear one. Works out fine, especially with IWB. If I were going OWB, and a higher-set holster than my MTAC, I'd probably want to go for the CSM. Not because I have any tangible evidence that it's needed, but just for the extra mental insurance.
