Just picked up an "operators" 5.11 tactical belt from dicks sporting goods the other day, and I gotta say its simply amazing! A decent price at $39.00, couldn't say no to it. I had been searching for a sturdy, well priced belt to use with Blackhawk serpa OC holster for my 1911. Normal belts didn't cut it, causing the belt to stretch, sag, and be uncomfortable. So I picked up the 5.11 belt and man is it nice! Fits Very well, and fits most of my shorts/pants well, being 1-3/4 inches thick. Wanted to share with everyone, figured someone else might be in the same situation I was in and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a belt.
