“The Foundation Belt” from EDC Belt Co, LLC is 1.5" and made for conceal carry out of Cordura and reinforced nylon webbing, in all of the right places, with a Tri-Glide low profile buckle. The Foundation Belt, by EDC was built to be a functional and comfortable belt for concealed carriers. It is a double taper cut, made with 5 rows of stitching to be comfortable, conform to the wearer and to keep the belt from rolling back and a non-reinforced tag to allow the belt to be fed through the pant loops from either direction. It has a combination of softer materials and SCUBA webbing that only places heavy non flexible SCUBA webbing in the areas you should wear a holster - from appendix to strong side on the non tag side and under the loop tape portion for running the tag through holster loops.

Sizing your EDC Belt© Co LLC “The Foundation” © Belt Using a tailor’s tape.

Measure your true pant size by threading the tailor’s tape through your belt loops WITH YOUR HOLSTER AND ANY OTHER ACCESSORIES MOUNTED ON YOUR PANTS! This may require assistance. Take the closest size to the measurement in INCHES. Make sure you thread the tape through holster mounting loops as well. Generally, this will be the next belt size up from your pant size. See Example below.

If you have any questions concerning sizing, please email EDC Belt© Company at

 Example: EDC Belt© Co LLC Co-Founder Bryan’s true waist size is 35 ¼. Bryan wears 36 waist pants. With his Beretta Elite LTT in an AIWB Holster and JM Custom Kydex OWB mag pouch mounted, his Measurement is 37 ¾. Bryan buy’s a size 38 Belt.

Note: You CANNOT tighten the belt below it's nominal size. But, you CAN loosen the belt by 3" (more if you don't' need all the velcro to make contact). Belt can be loosened up to 3" but CANNOT bet tightening below it's nominal size. So you are on the edge, order a size smaller.  
If you carry OWB, order your actual size.

    Best AIWB belt available

    Posted by Donald T Wallis on Nov 17th 2019

    I've been searching for a great AIWB EDC belt for years. I've tried many leather belts and the super tacti-cool riggers belts. I took Spencer Keepers AIWB class. I ordered Foundation Belt shortly after. If anyone tells me they found a better belt for AIWB, I'll call them a liar in front of their family. Job well done!

    Best Belt Ever

    Posted by Brian / Evolution Security on Nov 6th 2019

    I’ve used a number of belts in the past and this is hands-down the most comfortable, most adjustable, and most practical belt I’ve ever owned. The quality is top notch and the infinite adjustability is what is really needed for my AIWB carry. You guys have hit a home run with this product and I will suggest this belt for all my friends and students.

    Core extension

    Posted by James Angel on Oct 25th 2019

    I carry at the 3:30-4:00 o’clock positive and I find the inner core could extend 1 more inch to the rear. I find the belt quite comfortable.

    Runs small but awesome

    Posted by Duncan McGuire on Oct 24th 2019

    I love this belt. Quick on and off and sturdy enough yet confortable. O Lynn complaint is that I wear a size 34 pants, ordered a 36 for IWB, and I have to really cinch it to fit with plenty of velcro. The more I wear it, the more I like it though and I think a 38 would be just too big

    Foundation Belt

    Posted by CHARLES HACKER on Oct 19th 2019

    I have been wearing this belt for about 2 weeks now and have found it very comfortable and functional. Plenty stiff enough for my S&W Shield 9 carried in an Alien Gear IWB holster. I find the buckle to be very non-obtrusive and the velcro latching able to adjust to any pant I'm wearing or any situation that comes up. In my work (government building) I cannot carry my firearm, so when I remove the holster , the belt adjust quickly and easily. This belt fits my needs perfectly.

    Foundation belt

    Posted by Jody Hopkins on Oct 14th 2019

    Finally!! A product that functions as advertised. Have tried belts that were too rigid or had a tendency to slip at the buckle. This belt is “just right”.

    Best Belt I’ve Purchased

    Posted by John Carney on Oct 13th 2019

    This is by far the best belt I own. It was shipped quickly and I wore it the very night it arrived. Very comfortable and held my OWB holster and gun with absolutely no sliding or shifting. I’m looking forward to purchasing the next size up for use with my IWB holster.

    I love the belt. It is exactly what it's billed as. Comfortable where it needs to be and structured where it needs to be.
