At MCH we realize most of our belts are used in the daily carry of a gun. All our belts are designed to have little or no side flex to them. This stops a high ride holster from tipping out at the top (remember, when packing an auto you have a gun that is top heavy). The second thing and equally important is when carrying a gun all day it tends to get heavy in the carry area. Our belts are designed to distribute the weight through the full side of the body making long period carry much more comfortable. With these features in mind, this makes the Mernickles Belt line the ideal everyday use product for many years to come.
