Yeah, thats my belt, loaded full sized G21 with weapon light, zero roll over what so ever.

I am not a fan of the Jones Tactical because I'm not a fan of stolen intellectual property.

If you don't want to deal with the waiting list by going through Ares Gear directly, odds are you can find Ranger belts in stock at Grey Group or Larue,


Who was the intellectual property allegedly stolen from?


Oh jesus let's not get into this one here. The issue was settled years ago on LF and I have no desire for a pissing match on this forum about it. You guys can PM about it but this thread will not be turned into a 'he-said-she-said' thing about belts.

I won't repeat the post here, but I posted about this in my "AAR - Carry the Glock 26" thread, here:

http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=86717&start=48

Long story short,

1) A double-layer, dedicated gun belt is an absolute BREAKTHROUGH! It's more important, even, than a good holster
2) Gun_Nut_2k1 makes AWESOME belts

'Nuff said.

I think that's a pretty big overstatement. One isn't much good without the other.

Good belt + bad holster = fail
bad belt + good holster = fail
good belt + good holster = win

I have a 5.11 carry belt. Got it with a pair of pants ordered years ago. Still works great. And, it was free (paid for the pants though). The only real wear are the holes for the buckle, thats it. Never bled either.

I love it. It's stiff as hell, but my pants don't sag to one side either.

I love my Ares gear belt. I want one in CB now.

If it's covered up by a shirt or something, why not one of the CR Speed Holster belts?

Despite the contrary opinions, I will continue to wear and recommend the Jone's Tactical belt; it's good kit.

Because there are plenty of belts designed for concealed carry that aren't brightly colored? In other words, "why" a CR Speed belt is the question, not "why not".

I'm looking for a "fancy" stitch leather gun belt to replace my 5.11 belts. They are worn out after 10 years of constant wear.

Any suggestions?

When we meet up next I will bring my leather Comp-tac belt, and let you look at it. It has held up well for me.

Edited to ask: When you say "fancy stitch" do you mean a belt that has a design stitched into the leather?

Just wanted to thank all that contributed for their opinions and recommendations. I did notice that the scuba webbing type belts are clearly in the lead as far as recommendations, with a few for the Comptac leather belt.

As a question of curiosity, does anyone have suggestions for something inbetween these two styles of belts - eg, the nylon rigger's style and formal dress leather belt. I'm not talking something like a bandito style leather belt, but something like a kydex reinforced "work leather" style belt?

Once again, thanks everyone for some really great suggestions.

Not sure what you mean, but the CompTac is in fact Kydex and leather, it's a pretty hefty belt.

If you don't need or want leather, the scuba rigging belts are excellent.

I'm going to get one of the scuba webbing belts for sure - probably in coyote/black as it'll match almost everything in my wardrobe.

By a "working" leather belt I meant something like what I wear right now around the yard/farm/etc. Basically a thick 1.75" tall tooled style leather belt with the ol' notch style buckle on it. It's not fancy, it's pretty beat up, and it's one of the few things I still have from my father. I thought it would be nice to move the belt buckle over to a similar styled belt.

Sentimental reasons, mostly.

I've never so much as seen either one in person, so I'm legitimately asking - why do you consider the Jone's belt better than the Ares?

NXP, I'm just guessing, but see if Kirkpatrick Leather makes something like what you're looking for.

Oh mine's a solid black one. They were on clearance for under 60 bucks.

I've had one of this guy's belts for about 8 years now. Has held up nicely. $80
Mine has started bowing some, and if I get a new one I'd get the same one again fwiw

I will never willingly own an Ares Gear product. (please do no confuse Ares Armor with Ares Gear; Ares Armor is the hotness).


Is this due to quality, customer service, or company politics?

Eh, I suppose I spoke too harshly. If it fits normal pants loops, it might make a fine concealed carry belt, I've never personally used one.

EDITED TO ADD: Just got my Jones Tactical FatZombie Duty Belt, it is the bomb-diggity for realz. It's currently my duty rig, holding a Safariland Triple slimline with 3 G22 magazines, OC spray, 26" ASP in an ASP Federal scabbard, flashlight, glove pouch, Safariland radio pouch and Motorola XTS2500, and G23 in a Safariland 6280. It is rock solid, comfortable, overall, fuckin' titties.

This right up here^. The beltman's stuff is great. Get the plastic rigidifier strip.

I ordered a Vring gunbelt ($36 shipped) from Kary about a week ago. Great guy, loves ZSers, quick responses. 4-5 weeks to get your belt made, so it may be another month before I get it. I'm very excited. It will be my new everyday-nodaysoff gunbelt/pantsbelt, though when I get a job, I'll order a few more. Black does get a bit old in the summer :wink:
