When looking for a sturdy, low profile conceal carry belt, there is a wide variety of options out there. Where do you even start looking? Personally, I start looking locally or made in the USA, but that usually means a higher cost. I was quickly frustrated searching the web trying to compare prices, customer reviews and YouTube videos. I have had bad experiences with so called “gun belts”, so I told myself I wouldn’t be fooled again.
I came across Blue Alpha Gear and heard their story. They started in a garage in Newnan, GA making kydex holsters, then ventured into making high quality belts at a budget price. They offer free shipping for every order and take pride in every belt they produce. When I decided to get one of their belts they announced the new hybrid belt. It included the 1.5 inch cobra buckle that could fit through your standard belt loops on almost any pair of pants. In my opinion, this was a game changer!
I have been wearing the Hybrid EDC belt for 8 months and I am surprisingly impressed on how comfortable and durable it is. The belt still looks and feels brand new, and continues to retain its rigidity. From these observations, quality isn’t sacrificed with this product.
Blue Alpha Gear stands behind their products with a limited warranty. If you ever need to replace your belt due to losing or gaining weight, or the hook and loop finally wears out, simply contact them, send them your cobra buckle, $20 and they will replace the belt using your buckle.
The pros of this product include affordable price, great customer service, high quality materials, great return policy and, of course, it’s made in the USA. The cons are hard to come by honestly. I think most are personal preferences. I would like to see more color options and a hook and loop on the outside, so you can throw on a padded battle belt. Other than that, this belt is exactly what you are looking for when you are ready for a real edc belt.
