I've seen that. Those are neat. I have 3 gun belts. One for IWB, one for OWB, and the other one is in case I blow back up like beached whale :roll:
Checked on Amazon, and all the sellers (including Kore Essentials) display a notice that these belts are not gun belts.I'd never heard of Kore Essentials until I saw a forum thread on Sunday. After reading and watching several reviews, I ordered the Trakline belt with the X1 buckle that evening; I got it today (Wednesday).
Initial impressions: I really like it! It's going to be my new dress belt whether I'm CCing or not. However, I've just finished trying it with the three holsters I wear the most: IWB Bianchi Model 100 Professional; OWB Galco Avenger; Blackhawk SERPA w/ paddle; and the belt handled my Sig P229 (35.9 oz with loaded mag) without any problems.

It appears to have two plastic inserts inside the leather. I haven't tried it OWB for an extended time yet.How reinforced are they? Likely to bend or deform when carrying 2 - 3 pounds OWB?
I adjust my belt several times a day, depending on whether I'm sitting, standing, driving, etc..... I ordered one and it came in today.... Initial impression is that it is very comfortable. Especially because the belt adjusts in 1/10-inch increments....
Good to know; keep us updated!It carries my 4 pound sidearm OWB (slider holstered) without bending....
Why? Serious question.Adjustments in 1/10th-inch increments is a plus!

For "those days" of the month. Why else.opcorn:
Well, in relation to belts with 1-inch incremental adjustments and when packing heavy metal, sometimes to achieve the tightness needed to get the belt to stay up would also cause the belt to be uncomfortably tight across the front edges of the pelvic bone. And loosening by an inch would result in the belt not being able to stay up during the course of a day while also carrying the weight.
Comfort (and b/c it's just so easy with this belt).
