“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.
Take the closest even number of your pant size and add 2 For IWB
Example: If you wear a 34 waist pant you wear a 36 belt
Odd size belts generally go up to the next even size. 
Example: A 35 waist would typically wear a 36 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.

    Concealed carry comfort

    Posted by Kevijn C McCurrie on May 9th 2019

    The belt is perfect for a big person like me afflicted with TB (two bellies). It is very secure and the buckle does not bit into your skin like some of the leather strong belts.

    Fit & Function

    Posted by Steven Horton on May 8th 2019

    The Foundation Belt is a good piece of gear. My experience has revealed to me the following highlights.

    This belt works very well if you carry any where from the 12 - 4 o'clock position (I am right handed and have not tried the left hand side of the belt / body). If you prefer to carry past 4 o'clock, I'm not sure the double layer of belt material will be available to your rear holster clip.

    The length of the belt is a touch on the long side. I wear a size 34 pant and my size 36 belt is almost too long.

    For the price I do not believe that you are truly getting what you pay for. If this belt was priced at $35 or less, I believe you would a better bang for your buck.

    Foundation Belt

    Recently purchased this belt, less than a month ago, It is as advertised, stiff where needed, flexes where needed. Stays secure no shifting -works well at the range, Only reason for 4 stars- buckle seems a little light -time will tell, I would buy another.

    Carry Belt

    Posted by Proud Navy Dad on May 5th 2019

    The only complaint I have is the Velcro part of the belt system. I do not like that feature of the belt. Other than that I like it. I carry a inside the waist band holster with a full size 1911.

    Well made but fit is off....

    Posted by John May on May 2nd 2019

    My pants size is between 34 and 36. The product description encourages ordering the smaller size if you are between sizes. Therefore, I ordered the 34 and it is way too small. Pulled as tight as I can tolerate, I can only engage about an inch of velcro. Looking at the design, I would have much more flexibility getting a 36 smaller than a 34 larger.

    Super comfortable and stable!

    Posted by Douglas J Boehme on Apr 29th 2019

    I replaced a bulky and stiff CCW belt with this and the comfort left is so much better! I'm using it with OWB and IWB and my CCWs are all extremely stable with this belt. I ordered one for my son and one for his girlfriend!

    Foundation Belt

    Great item! Just what expected after looking at the video. Have only had it for a week but have worn it every day since. Very comfortable while providing just the right amount of additional support in the right places. Can see it being my EDC "Foundation." Looking forward to testing it with a new PX4 Compact Carry - awaiting delivery.

    Great belt

    Is as advertised. Flexible in the right areas. All day comfort. Matches great with the keeper’s holster.
