I love cool shit. I love cool wallets, I love pocket knives, I love carrying a pistol, but you know what I hate??? Having to adjust my belt all the time! Every time my cheap nylon belt slips I feel like I am at risk of losing my pants! And leather belts with their standard holes? Ha, whats the point? One hole feels like you are not even wearing the belt, and the next hole feels like you are being squeezed by a creature of the deep. Well I finally had enough and reached out to Liberty Gun Belts for a suggestion and they sent me their No Velcro EDC Belt to try out.
Let me start this review by saying this, this is the BEST EDC belt I have ever worn. Now I am not saying all the others suck, but for those of you who change holsters a lot, this belt is where it’s at. The EDC belt is constructed of 2 layers of 1.5″ dive belt giving it a firm feeling, without being so stiff that you feel like it’s stabbing your hips when you sit down. The thickness of the belt is great for the IWB holster clips to grab, without being too thick. You can get the 1.5″ layer in Black, Coyote Tan, Coyote Brown, and Wolf Gray.Take note that the black color will be an extra firm belt.
There is an additional layer of 1″mil spec webbing that connects the belt to the male end of the buckle to the belt. This mil spec webbing layer is also what allows for 9″ of adjustment on the buckle in case you get a little crazy at all you can eat wings night. You can get the 1″ mil spec in 12 different colors to offer a cool contrast to the 1.5″ layer it sits on.
To top off the customization, Liberty Gun Belts lets you pick from 8 different colors for your stitching, or you can pick to have matching thread color applied.
Now the buckle is where the belt wins at. It is a Cobra buckle that has become the standard on all high end gun and EDC belts, but instead of being the usual 1.5″ buckle that wont fit through almost any belt loops, Liberty Gun Belts decided to go with the 1″ buckle on both the male and female ends. I can pretty much fit this buckle through any pants belt loop except a pair of hiking pants from REI and some extremely cheap wanna-be BDU pants I picked up at a thrift store. Since both sides of the buckle are a reduced size, the belt can be threaded through the loops in either direction problem free. Liberty Gun Belts lets you choose your buckle color from Matte Black, Coyote Brown, Foliage, Sand, and Wolf Gray to complete the customization of your new belt.
So what makes this the BEST EDC belt in my opinion? It’s 1″ of mil spec that does it. So instead of your traditional EDC belt where you run the belt through the buckle, adjust to fit, and then the extra material Velcros back onto the belt, this belt has no Velcro. The 1″ mil spec webbing runs through the male end of the buckle and all you have to do is give it a pull to tighten, or work with it to loosen as need be. No more undoing the Velcro, and then trying to push enough material back through the buckle just to re-Velcro and see if you got it right. What makes this system even better is the buckle is a breeze to remove and put back on if you are someone like me who changes holsters a lot.
I ended up with a black belt, black webbing with a black buckle, a blue accent stitching. I thought it was a good combo to represent the thin blue line since I am a police officer. I work in a plain clothes unit and the need for a good belt is absolutely important to the job. Most days this belt carries a full size Glock with a weapons light and a bulky holster while I run, jump, climb, fight, and whatever else the day throws at me. The belt has been flawless in working. It has never loosened up on me, its rigid enough to keep my holster from flopping around but not so stiff it’s uncomfortable, and it works with every pair of blue jeans I have.
Well what’s the negative? I mean it’s a review, so there has to be one right? After using this belt for so long I can’t really think of one. No I wouldn’t try repelling with this belt, but it’s not a riggers belt anyways. If that’s a negative to you, then I guess I found a negative for the belt. If you want an EDC belt with the traditional Velcro fold over then check out my review of the Blue Alpha Gear Hybrid EDC Belt HERE.
