3 Tips for Choosing the Best Gun Belt

You have the right to bear arms, and you also have the right to choose how you bear them! At Nexbelt, we are proud to offer you the best gun belt you have ever had. How can we make this claim? Our Everyday Carry belts are a notch above the competition. We can say this with confidence because the best gun belts do not have any holes in them. However just because a belt is holeless and can stretch doesn’t make it a good belt for carrying. Without the ability to make micro adjustments, within easy reach to adjust, you’ll never have a truly comfortable belt.  And that is exactly what we offer with our ratchet style Everyday Carry belts. You can now get the comfort and security of a ratchet belt, even for your trusty sidearm.

“Everyday Carry (EDC) Belts. Stiff enough to hold your weapon but also comfortable to wear all day long. Recommended by industry-leading experts.”

Whether you are a first-time handgun owner or you have worn your piece of steel for years, we have an EDC belt that will permit you to carry your handgun on your hip - opened or closed carry. Maybe you are shopping for an EDC belt for the first time, or maybe you are in the market for a new belt. Regardless of what your circumstances are, we have the best gun belt for you.

How do you find the perfect EDC for you? We have provided 3 tips to help you choose the best gun belt money can buy.

3 Tips for Choosing the Best Gun Belt

If you are going to carry, then you need a gun belt. If you get a gun belt, then you cannot get just any gun belt, you need to find the best gun belt for you and your weapon. The gun belt works by creating a firm foundation to which you can attach your holster. The holster can slide onto the outside or inside of your belt, enabling you to position the holster to your level of comfort. There are many factors to consider when looking to purchase a gun belt.[1] You need to consider the material, the type of gun you plan to carry, and the purpose. 


One of the most important things for you to consider before purchasing a gun belt is the material. Let’s be honest, if you are going to strap a piece of metal to your waist and it has the capacity to fire a bullet, then you want to be sure it is as secure as possible. One of the best ways to do that is to make you have a highly durable gun belt material, and the most popular and reliable durable material for gun belts is nylon. 

At Nexbelt, “Our nylon straps are made from a super-high density microfiber material that is an advanced composite of ultra-fine polyester fibers. This allows the stiffness required for holstering your sidearm if you have a CCW (concealed carry weapon) permit or just your everyday tools.” 

We were the first to offer set screws along with the clasp which allows the strap to take on more weight and a more reliable hold. We are also the only manufacturer to use stainless-steel set screws in the construction of our buckles. Our competitors use pins that can easily back out and lead to buckle failure, leaving your weapon less secure. 

Another great option is the Supreme Appendix EDC belt. “With our most compact buckle design and incredibly adjustable latch system, you’ll have all the room you need to carry your firearm and even extra magazines upfront in comfort. The buckle can be worn front & center, on your left or right hip, or hidden near the curve of the back.” 

Of course, all our EDC belts have our PRECISEFIT™ ratchet fastening technology. Our EDC belts will fit a 50-inch waist. 

You want to be sure the material can work well with the holster to bring you the perfect combination of security and durability.[2] 

Type of Gun

Guns come in all shapes and sizes. This is true of handguns as well. Whether your sidearm of choice is a Smith and Wesson Body Guard 380, Desert Eagle 50 AE or  Glock 19 - our gun belts are ready for the challenge. The weight and size of the gun you carry is a very important consideration when deciding which gun belt is best for you. For more information on which gun belt is ideal for your sidearm, contact us by calling at (909) 758-0079 or email us Info@Nexbelt.Com and we will be happy to discuss the best gun belt solution for your handgun. 

Purpose for Carrying

The reason you carry your sidearm will also play a factor in the type of gun belt you need. If you are in law enforcement, hunting, construction, or other activities that require a lot of moving and the belt will endure a lot of strain, then the nylon gun belts are going to provide the durability and style you need. 

If you are frequently required to dress in a suit or business casual when you carry, then you will probably need the Carbonite EDC. This belt is stunning and brand new! The Carbonite EDC is sharp, easy to dress up with the carbon fiber style and the flat nickel finish. If you are frequently in venues that require you to be business attire, then this versatile look can easily be paired with your favorite pair of jeans or dressing up with a nice pair of slacks or a full suit. 

Are You Ready to Find the Best Gun Belt for You?

When it’s time to purchase an EDC belt, there are many factors that must be considered. There are a variety of materials available on the market, but our nylon belts are unmatched in durability - even stronger because of the ratchet fastening technology - there are no holes in our EDC belts, so they start stronger and last longer.
