“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.

    Great Belt

    Posted by Ben Johnson on Apr 2nd 2020

    I first heard about this belt months ago from Mickey with Carry Trainer. I’ve owned a variety of edc belts over the years and while I believed what he said, I figured it wouldn’t be much different from what I currently had. I finally decided to try one out, and while I’ve only had less than a week of using it I am blown away at the difference. The comfort that comes from having stiffness only where needed has a far greater impact than I thought it could. I also love the buckle design, slips through the loops quite easily and has just enough retention to make adjustment easy but secure until you want to lock it down with the Velcro. Incredible belt, will have no use for the other 4 belts I have lying around now, would recommend to anyone looking over anything comparable on the market.

    Absolutely amazing, the BEST gun belt out there for appendix carriers

    Posted by Chris 'Sully' Cortez on Mar 30th 2020

    I've tried all the hottest gun belts on the market from Aries to TRex Arms to Magpul to Blue Alpha Gear to Kore to Klik etc. And so far NONE of them are as comfortable for appendix carriers than The Foundation belt. This belt is my current favorite belt right now because it's the only one I own that I don't have to wear an extra homemade 'pad' so the weight of the belt and gear doesn't dig into my side/hips causing a HUGE sore. This Foundation belt has stretchy material in the right places if you're an appendix carrier, and hard sections of the belt where the holsters will go (mag and gun). Now it isn't as convenient as say the Kore essentials ratcheting belt, however the comfort for me outweighs any other feature of any other belt. I'm sick of using a sock, or a special pad to prevent the belts from digging into my lower hips and this Foundation belt really does take care of that problem. The ONLY criticism i would give this belt, is I wish it was a TRUE appendix carry model. And not an AWIB/IWB or strong side wearable. The reason being, is that the scuba webbing up front is really nice and stiff, and the scuba webbing along the side where you would run your mags is stiff too, however it extends too far behind the back and after wearing a full size gun/light combo, your lower back can def feel it. if the mag side had a little 'hard' webbing in the back and it started at the 7/8oclock position instead of the 6:30 position it'd be MUCH better. All in all I'd give this belt a 5/5 and just wish they had various colors.

    I was gifted my first foundation belt and just received my second one that I ordered today. EDC's belt design functions very well and the durability and comfort is extremely impressive. Kudos to Langdon Tactical for getting it to me fast.

    Simple, very low profile, great for appendix carry, could be a little more stiff.

    Foundation Belt

    Worn the belt for a few days. So far it’s comfortable, low profile, functional, and size was spot on(34 waist, 36 belt). Wish the buckle would hold adjustment without the Velcro. The Velcro(so far) is super grippy and seem to be quality.

    Great product. Support where needed while providing flex were needed for comfort. The size table was spot-on for me.
