Vedder Holsters Gun Belt Review: The Best Tactical Belts for Concealed Carry

Vedder Holsters Gun Belt Review: The Best Tactical Belts for Concealed Carry

Every functional concealed carry system starts with a strong foundation – a quality gun belt.

Even the best gun and holster combo can become uncomfortable to wear and difficult to conceal without a reliable belt to keep it all securely in place. At Vedder Holsters, we offer a selection of five belts designed to hold up under daily use.

Whether you need a sturdy leather belt that blends in at the office, a durable nylon belt for EDC, or a reliable inner belt for duty use, we’ve got you covered with a variety of the best tactical belts for any scenario.

All of our concealed carry belts are made in the USA and are crafted with high-quality, durable materials intended to last a lifetime. Each of our belts is also backed by a 30-day risk-free trial and a lifetime guarantee.

This article will provide a comprehensive review of every belt in the Vedder Holsters lineup, so you can determine which one (or two…) will best suit your needs.

Cobra® Quick Release

Cobra® Quick Release - Vedder Holsters

One of our most popular tactical gun belts is the Cobra® Quick Release Gun Belt. This belt features a step-down Cobra® buckle and works great for anyone looking for a quality CCW belt for daily use.

Material: The Cobra® quick release belt is crafted with a premium, extra-stiff dual-layered nylon webbing. This material is durable enough to easily support the weight of your carry gun without sagging while remaining comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time.

Buckle: This nylon CCW belt features a step-down quick release Cobra® buckle that easily clips into place. Made from military-grade aluminum alloy, this clip-in design eliminates the need to adjust your belt every time you put it on, allowing you to set your belt to the right size and leave it there. It’s also designed to easily thread through standard belt loops, so putting it on and taking it off is hassle-free.

Specs: The Cobra® belt comes in seven different sizes ranging from 26” to 53”. It is 1.5” in width, thick enough to secure your firearm while still threading easily. It comes in three different color options, black, coyote brown, and wolf gray, all of which come with a black buckle.

Use: This gun belt is perfectly designed for everyday carry or range use. Because of its standard size, anyone can feel comfortable incorporating this belt into their carry setup.

V3 Gun Belt

V3 Gun Belt - Vedder Holsters

Similar to the Cobra®, the V3 Gun Belt is a tactical belt made from ultra-stiff nylon and is designed for concealed carry. It features a low-profile, lightweight buckle that’s both highly concealable and easy to use.

Material: The V3 EDC belt is made with two layers of premium, extra-stiff nylon webbing. It’s firm enough to support your carry system with ease while remaining flexible enough for everyday movement.

Buckle: The V3 has a slip-on buckle design, which easily slides over the nylon loop at the end of the belt for a secure hold. The buckle is crafted with 7075 billet aluminum and is both minimalistic and durable. Its design allows you to set the size you want without having to readjust every time you put it on, making it incredibly user-friendly and easy to thread into standard belt loops.

Specs: This belt comes in seven different sizes between 26” to 53”. It’s 1.5” wide, which easily threads while maintaining durability. It comes with a black buckle and three different color choices: black, coyote brown, and wolf gray.

Use: The V3 is extremely versatile, and is the best tactical gun belt for everyday carry or range use. Its low-profile buckle makes it an excellent choice for anyone who is looking for the most discreet option.

Polymer Core Leather Gun Belt

Polymer Core Leather Gun Belt - Vedder Holsters

For a tactical belt that doesn’t look like a tactical belt, you’ll want to check out the Polymer Core Leather Gun Belt. This leather EDC belt is touted as being “rugged enough for the ranch and sleek enough for the boardroom,” and that’s no exaggeration.

Material: This belt is crafted with a double layer of premium cowhide. It is reinforced with a solid, polymer core that makes the belt extra stiff, so it can easily support the weight of your carry gun without adding a lot of additional bulk.

Buckle: The Polymer Core Leather Gun Belt features a classic, gunmetal matte finished buckle that adds a high-end look.

Specs: This belt comes in a range of sizes between 30” to 58”. It is 1.5” wide and easily threads through standard belt loops. It has a silver buckle and comes in two colors – black or brown leather.

Use: The Polymer Core Leather Gun Belt is the best tactical belt for any use. Its sleek look makes it an excellent choice for either casual use or for more dressy occasions. Because it looks like an everyday belt, it’s a great option for anyone looking to discreetly carry.

Leather Gun Belt

Leather Gun Belt - Vedder Holsters

If you’re looking for a gun belt that’s thinner and more flexible than the Polymer Core Belt without sacrificing the quality and classy look, the Leather Gun Belt might be for you. This leather belt has the same sleek appearance and is stiff enough for CCW with more flexibility.

Material: The simple Leather Gun Belt is crafted with 14 ounce premium cowhide leather that provides a stiff foundation for your carry system without adding bulk. In fact, it only has a thin, 0.21” to 0.25” thick footprint, making it a great choice for everyday wear – with or without your gun.

Buckle: This belt also has an elegant gunmetal matte finished belt buckle that adds a high-end look to it. It’s a classic design, meaning you will need to adjust it each time you put it on.

Specs: The Leather Gun Belt is 1.5” wide and threads effortlessly through standard belt loops. It’s available in many sizes ranging from 30” to 58”. This belt also comes in your choice of black or brown leather.

Use: This is the best gun belt for anyone looking to carry with as little bulk as possible. It seamlessly transitions between use as a gun belt and everyday belt, and looks great for casual or formal use.

Inner Gun Belt

Whether you’re a tactical enthusiast or a law enforcement officer looking for the sturdiest duty belt on the market, the Inner Gun Belt will not disappoint. This Velcro belt is specifically designed to keep your duty belt firmly in place all day long.

Material: The Inner Gun Belt is made with a high-quality nylon and Velcro that wraps around the entire length of the outside of the belt, allowing you to attach your duty belt with ease.

Buckle: Because this is an inner belt, designed to be worn on the inside of a duty belt, it has Velcro in lieu of a traditional buckle. The Inner Gun Belt does feature an easy-thread beveled end, making it faster than ever to slip through standard belt loops.

Specs: Measuring 1.5” thick, this belt is available in seven different sizes ranging between 26” to 53”. It comes in a simple black, which perfectly blends with your duty setup.

Use: This belt is specifically designed to be used with a law enforcement or military duty belt. It can be threaded through your belt loops, allowing you to quickly and easily strap your outer duty belt onto it, making your setup more efficient.

Sizing Instructions

When it comes to your everyday carry belt, a comfortable fit is as important as durable materials and a thoughtful design.

To ensure a proper fit, we suggest ordering your belt based on your actual pant size, using standard men's pant sizing measurements. It's important to note that while pants usually stretch, gun belts do not, so most people will need to order a larger belt size than their pant size.

Another way to determine your correct belt size is to try on a belt you already have with your everyday carry setup. Once you have the belt positioned where you want it, mark the spot and measure the length from that hole to the end of the belt (excluding the buckle). This measurement will give you the correct belt size to order.

If you’re still confused, check out our How to Pick the Right Sized Gun Belt video for some visual instruction.
