Go to a police/army/navy store and get a good sturdy leather duty belt. I have two that close with velcro so they're infinitely adjustable.

Any quality leather belt will work. The cheaper, thin ones will get soft very quickly and roll and not support your holster.

I'm a firm believer in a good belt when carrying. A good belt will make you forget a gun is on your side. It will hold like it should and not move or roll.

I highly recommend The Belt Man belts. I know a lot of people who use these belts, myself included, and have never heard a bad word.

The Wilderness Belt is another gray belt. I prefer the 5 stitch for the extra stiffness.

That's why I suggested the five stitch and meant to also include the insert. It's an extra $15 but makes for a great set up.
