Dragging this up from the dead... Recently bought a H150 belt from Arc'teryx. Worth every goddamn penny. Dunno about the knockoffs floating around, but the Dirty Bird has come through and in a great way.

That's my LBT Riggers Belt and it's the best I ever had. Very light weigt and flexible. If you find one on ebay (AOR1 / AOR2) they go for 100 - 150 $.

In my carrier I have tried many of the more rigger belts on the market and I have found them to all be the same as I have found them to be very heavy and clunky. In being heavy I have found them to actually pull down my pants instead of doing their primary job of holding them up.. Recently Dan at Arc'teryx sent me one of their H150 belts and I love it! Its very light and holds my pants up as well as it holds the snap link on my cows tail very secure. My only issue with it is that due to its lack of rigidity it doesn’t hold any first line gear such as my holster etc very well but that is an issue I can work around with a separate war belt.

I have a blackhawk riggers belt, and I'll buy another anytime if required. It's really good, but the buckle appears really massive. If I don't put it in the right spot on my waist before crouching, it'll dig right in, which is not too comfortable. Anyway, I definitely recommend blackhawks!

I just received 2 EDC belts from Jones Tactical. Even though not a true riggers belt they are top notch in every way. Super rigid if you're carrying 1st line stuff or a weapon. It looks like they will be releasing the EDC belt with a 'biner loop soon...Anyway, I really like the smaller 1.5in buckle and the two tone webbing. It looks super and feels super classy.

I've got two of the blackhawk ones, one in tan and one in green. Wear the green one everyday and its pretty comfy. Had the tan one for just over two years and its held up well been on a 6 month tour to afghan and plenty of training exercises. Recommend one to anyone.

I´ve got a BHI and a LBT, black twice. BHI is cheaper and it's really good. And 30USD...

The Wilderness belts are the original, and in my opinion still the best. Get the 5 stitch version.
