I have had the same leather belt from the GAP for 13 years. I had to mend it where the buckle is a couple years ago but it still has another 5 years or so if I push it. I have been meaning to get a new one. I will probably just get some nice leather, reuse the buckle from this one, and make my own. Maybe I will make one from the leather off all my old boots

nice, I had an old leather belt (that was awesome), with a buckle that said "PLUMBER"(and one that said "labbat 50") for the longest time.. but then I started to get an itchy reaction on my gut from the leather.. my Birkenstocks gave me the same itchy reaction on the tops of my feet.. so I stopped wearing leather. this elastic belt is then next best thing.

loss of circulation to the lower extremities from the waist down is not a good
feeling ......

I normally carry a phone clipped on my pants and sometimes 2 pair of channel locks and a screwdriver and flashlight in my pocket and it all pulls down too much on the belt... also sometimes I got a gun in my pocket
just depends on the territory.....

suspenders rule.....





Same here, the belt carries the "stuff": phone, flashlight, pistol and holster, and the pants carry the knife, channel locks, screwdriver. The suspenders hold everything up and keep the weight off of your hips so maybe you can have a pain free day. Also, a tight belt can hit a nerve and give you what feels like back or hip pain when it is really just pressure on the nerve from an overloaded belt or one that is too tight.



I have been using Perry suspenders that which onto the belt. My old clamp on suspenders would tear up the pants, but these work out fine.


Suspenders really are the way to go to carry a lot of stuff on your belt or in your pants (pockets).

I really hope I never develop an allergy. That's on my list of things that would drive me insane along with diabeetus.

Leather belt when I'm not working, Helly Hanson coveralls otherwise. The front bib pocket on the Hellys suck. I have it altered to be the same as Carhartt.
