The Best Gun Belts
A gun belt is a belt that is specifically designed for concealed carrying. They are built stronger and with more rigidity than a regular belt so that they can support the weight of your firearm. This makes concealed carrying more comfortable and also helps to keep your pistol concealed, which is an important factor, as the name implies.
When searching for a gun belt, you may notice different terms being used including concealed carry belt, everyday carry belt, EDC belt, concealed carry weapon belt, and CCW belt. These are all just other words used to describe gun belts and you should not let the terminology confuse you. Each of these types of belts is designed to support the weight of your firearm so you can carry comfortably and securely.
Look for These Features in the Best Gun Belt
As with most products, not all gun belts are created equal. Not every manufacturer designs its product to be reliable and durable. When you are shopping for a gun belt, you’ll want to ensure that the one you choose is made by a reputable company like Klik Belts who takes pride in the design and manufacturing of their product.
A gun belt should be a purchase that lasts you for years to come. Gun belts should be made from quality materials by a company that cares about its products and its customers. When shopping online, it can be difficult to determine which belts are high-quality and which are made from subpar materials and designed only to make a quick sale. You should make sure to do your research before investing in a gun belt to ensure that the company only uses superior materials and you should also check some online reviews to see what customers are saying about their product.

Stability and Strength
A gun belt is built with stability and strength in mind. Since gun belts are designed to support the weight of your firearm, it only makes sense that they need to be stronger and stiffer. Gun belts not only have to keep your pants in place like a regular belt but also have to do so with the added weight of your pistol.
At Klik Belts, we carry both leather and nylon gun belts that are perfect for concealed carrying. We make our belts specifically for those who prefer to carry their pistol at their waist. Our belts are made from strong materials and meticulously crafted to be some of the strongest belts available.
Another factor that you’ll want to consider when searching for the best gun belt is the materials that are used. A quality gun belt cannot be made from subpar materials. If you are searching for a leather gun belt, you’ll want to look for words like “top-grain leather” or “full-grain leather.” Belts labeled as “genuine leather” are usually made from lesser quality leather and can easily fall apart. If you are searching for a nylon gun belt, you may want to search for a tactical belt. These belts are designed to carry a lot of extra weight, so not only can you carry your firearm but you’ll even have the support to carry an extra magazine. You’ll also want to examine that the belt buckle is made from to ensure that the belt is made from overall quality materials.
At Klik Belts, we use only the finest materials to construct our gun belts. Our leather gun belts are made from genuine top-grain Herman Oak leather and double-stitched for extra strength, stability, and durability. Our nylon gun belts come in two widths and strengths. We offer our 1.5-inch tactical belt in a two-ply which is perfect for concealed carrying and is the ideal width to fit through most belt loops. We also offer our 1.75-inch duty belt in three-ply. This belt will not only support the weight of your pistol and an extra magazine but also almost any other tools or equipment that you may want to carry. Our duty belt was designed due to requests from military, law enforcement, and first responder requests, so you can trust that it is strong enough for any job.
Each Klik Belt is also equipped with an authentic Cobra® buckle from AustriAlpin. These buckles can withstand literally tons of weight-bearing pressure and each batch is thoroughly tested for strength by AustriAlpin. The Cobra® buckle is one of the strongest buckles in the world which is why we chose it for our Klik Belts.
Adjustable to Your Ideal Fit
Another aspect that you’ll want to consider when searching for the best gun belt is adjustability. Belts that are too loose or too tight are never comfortable, and when you are carrying extra weight on your belt that becomes even more of a factor. You’ll want to choose a belt that is easily adjustable just in case the belt becomes too tight when you sit or slightly too loose when you stand up. These are common problems that you’ll have with most any belt because of the way you shift your body as you change from a sitting to standing position or vice versa. Having a gun belt that is easily adjustable can make you more comfortable and ensures that you can securely carry your firearm without any problems.
At Klik Belts, since each of our belts features a Cobra® buckle, our belts are all easily adjustable for your comfort. To adjust a Klik Belt, you simply pull on the tail of the belt and the belt will tighten to the exact space where you feel comfortable. With traditional prong belt buckles, you are often forced to choose a hole that is either slightly too tight or just a bit too loose, but with a Cobra® buckle, this isn’t the case. A Klik Belt can be adjusted to your ideal fit so you can be sure that you won’t accidentally expose your firearm.
Comfortable Enough to Wear All Day
Comfort is another factor you should consider when shopping for the best gun belt. If you are concealed carrying, whether it’s for personal reasons or for work, you want to be able to comfortably carry for hours at a time. A good gun belt will be comfortable because it will provide you with the support and strength that you need. Gun belts that are made from subpar materials or constructed poorly can cause your gun and pants to sag and that is not only uncomfortable but can also risk exposing your firearm.
At Klik Belts, we take immense pride in the design and production of our belts. We use the best materials and carefully construct our belts to be strong, durable, and comfortable. We are dedicated to providing our customers with the best product possible and it shows in everything that we do.
Positive Customer Reviews
When shopping for the best gun belt, it can be difficult to determine the type of materials used and the quality of the belt if you are shopping online. Checking customer reviews can be a great way to discover whether the gun belts are really as good as the company claims. Of course, everyone advertises their belts as the best, but sometimes that is just a matter of opinion. Read some online reviews and if the customers are raving about the belts and returning to purchase more than one, then you know you’ve found something special.
Our customers love our Klik Belts. Whether they’ve purchased our leather gun belts, nylon tactical belts, or nylon duty belts, they can’t stop talking about them. And, many of our customers come back to purchase a second, or even third, belt. Take a look at what our customers are saying about the gun belts at Klik Belts and purchase yours today!
Made In the U.S.A.
One more aspect that we will discuss when it comes to selecting the best gun belt is to choose a belt that is made in the U.S.A. When you purchase products that were made in other countries, especially third world countries, you may receive a product that is poorly constructed. Gun belts made in sweatshops are not only usually lower quality but also unethical.
At Klik Belts, we design and manufacture all of our belts right here in America. We take pride in providing the people of our community with quality jobs. Having our facility so close to home also allows us to overlook every stage of production to ensure that our high standards are being upheld.
Do I Really Need a Gun Belt?
At Klik Belts, we’ve had customers ask us from time to time if they really need a gun belt or if a regular belt would do the trick? The answer is simple: yes, you should use a gun belt to conceal carry. Regular belts are made to hold your pants up but do not provide the extra support and stability needed to also keep your firearm in place. Choosing a gun belt to conceal carry will be more comfortable and keeps your firearm from being exposed.
Gun Belts Keep Your Pants From Sagging
One of the most common issues that people who conceal carry have is called a gun sag. This is when your pants sag on the side or in the back where you carry your firearm. Regular belts are not made to support the extra weight of your pistol, but a gun belt is designed with this in mind. When you choose to upgrade to a gun belt for concealed carrying, you’ll experience less sagging.
Gun Belts Are Built More Rigid
Gun belts are, of course, made from stronger materials for added durability but they also need to be rigid and stiff in the vertical direction. When you use a regular belt to conceal carry, you’ll notice that the belt bends and buckles under the weight of your firearm. However, with a proper gun belt, your belt won’t buckle or bend. It will stay right in place and keep your pistol right where you need it.
Gun Belts Keep Your Gun Concealed
One of the most important aspects of concealed carrying is keeping your firearm concealed. After all, it is right in the name. This is a lot easier to do when you have the correct type of belt. Using a regular belt can cause more than one problem with concealment. First, as we previously mentioned, a regular belt can buckle and bend due to the weight of your firearm. This can cause your holster to turn and become exposed and even possibly fall off of your belt. Secondly, a regular belt can sag and cause your firearm to sit lower than it should. This can cause printing, which is when the outline of your gun can be seen through your pants. Neither of these situations is ideal for concealed carrying, but a quality gun belt like those from Klik Belts can help you avoid them.
Gun Belts Are More Comfortable for Concealed Carrying
Another reason that you should choose a gun belt for concealed carrying is that they are more comfortable. Gun belts are designed to support the weight of your pistol. When your belt and firearm are kept securely in place, not only are you more confident in your concealed carry but you are also much more comfortable. No one wants to be constantly pulling up their pants on one side or worry about whether the outline of their firearm is showing through. A gun belt is a good investment for anyone who would like to conceal carry for either work or personal reasons.

Two-Ply Nylon Belt
Our two-ply nylon belt is considered our tactical belt.
