Any good THICK heavy 1 1/4"- 1 1/2" will work. Don't buy a flimsy belt please.

I got my belt at a local police supply store here in Dallas, they had a great selection and it holds all my holster and guns great, if you got a store like that around you I would check them out

To be blunt, but not being a smart butt, Walmart. I got a nice all leather sturdy belt for a reasonable price and it's not going to break! And I didn't pay someone for their expensive idea of a holster belt.

Go to the Dillion site and check out the leather holster belt they sell. These are double thickness with solid brass buckles and smartly finished. I believe they are Milt Sparks' manufacture. I have bought two. Both times they had the size and color I wanted in stock and shipped immediately. A bit pricey at $70 but they seem like they will last forever.

With a IWB the belt rigidity is not as important. However where wearing a OWB it is. Good rule is a 1 1/2 inch belt most quality mfg. of good gun leather will accommodate a 1 3/4 however there are jeans that won't handle it., and almost certainly dress slacks won't . Actual thickness of the leather should probably not exceed 3/16 thick or so, if you get 1/4 thick it will not fit all holsters. Most likely if you go to cheap belts they will certainly be bonded leather and not a single thickness and the stitching is going to be crap, you do not want a wardrobe malfunction as your weapon hits the floor. I would probably look for belts between $50.00 -$100 no need to spend more. I think there is a site called the beltman check it out, reasonably priced and I have heard the stitching is excellent but watch the thickness. Do not wear a OWB with a crap belt you will regret it.
