Experienced gun toters know that a good belt is essential to comfortable carry in a belt holster. Even a great holster is no better than the belt that supports it. You should never skimp on your carry belt.
The key to a good belt is sufficient stiffness to properly support a holster and other heavy gear. If you use a leather belt, that usually requires a “double thick” construction to resist rolling and twisting under the load. While leather is a great material for a belt, leather has its issues too, including maintenance issues.
My Liger Gun Belt has become my favorite belt for casual wear and business-casual attire.
The Liger Gun Belt is fashioned from man-made synthetics, a proprietary material called Ligerthane. I don’t pretend to know what this stuff is, but it is tough. The Liger belt is very strong and stiff, while retaining enough flexibility for comfort and a relatively thin profile. Also important, however, is that the Ligerthane material is abrasion resistant, and nearly impervious to water, mildew, rot, solvents and other chemicals. The belt buckle is securely riveted to the belt, and is machined from a solid billet of aircraft aluminum that is treated with a mil-spec hard anodizing process. It’s hard to believe that this belt won’t last forever. Not surprisingly then, the belts come with a lifetime warranty.
While some may find the look of these belts a little unusual, I find them quite attractive. The Ligerthane is fashioned with a LigerDerm texture, to simulate the appearance of leather. The belts and buckles come in a variety of colors, including some non-tactical looking combinations of brown and tan. I have worn this belt for months and no one has commented on the unusual buckle. I am also happy to report that the belt sails through metal detectors without creating any undue alarm, so it is well suited for travel.
My Liger Gun Belt has become my favorite belt for casual wear and business-casual attire. Some of the other synthetic material belts on the market just don’t fit the current trends and they stand out in the crowd. This one doesn’t.
Liger Gun Belts are priced at $59.99, and should last for a long, long time. If you like the belt us much as I do, you will probably develop a collection of different colors! For more information, visit www.ligerproducts.com, 877-629-5556.
