Crossbreed Gun Belt
Anyone have the Instructor gun belt from Crossbreed holsters, it's the one without the buckle, I'm just wondering how the belt is secured without a buckle, it doesn't show any good pictures on the website.

Velcro usually.

Make sure you order the correct size. You don't order your pant size, but the actual length of the belt you want, which is probably 4 inches more than your actual waist size.

I love my Crossbreed belt, but it is not the style you're asking about.

Ya I was thinking about a Crossbreed belt, still am, but I will probably order the plain gun belt style with buckle. I don't want the velcro one. I have read on other reviews that the Crossbreed belt is too soft, scratches easily and isn't well finished on the edges, do you find this to be the case?

I have several belts from different companies, including Crossbreed.

The Crossbreed belt is thinner (i.e., thinner leather), not nearly as stiff as the belts from Bianchi, Sparks, Alessi, DeSantis (and several others). Even the belt I bought at Cabella's is (IMO) a better gun belt.

It works OK for now (I've had it for a little less than two months), but I'd expect it to soften up within the year.

This is what I've heard they aren't stiff enough, I was also considering one from Beltman.

I can vouch for The Beltman.

I have two of his gunbelts, and they are superb in appearance and performance.

Mine has definitely worn over time, but it is more than effective! It is too bad that gun belts cost so much, but I do know that they take a lot more work to make than a single-ply belt.
