Magpul Tejas Gun Belt 'El Original' 1.5 Inch
The Original Magpul Gun Belt
'El Original' is the first belt in the Tejas Gun Belt line by Magpul. Crafted from a combination of inch-and-a-half wide top grade bullhide leather and reinforced polymer, it’s strong and water resistant, rigid enough to carry a holster, but still comfortable for everyday use. Proudly made in Texas, it’s not just a great gun belt. It’s a great belt.
A Tough Combination
A top grade bullhide leather exterior layer and a supportive but flexible reinforced polymer interior combine to give gun belt rigidity with dress belt comfort and a stretch and sag free performance. A removable chrome plated buckle with branded 'tool-free' fasteners give easy customization.
Do not order your waist size or pants size! Lay an existing belt out flat and from where the leather folds at the point where the buckle is attached, measure to the hole that you typically use. Please remember when ordering to take into account any holster or accessory that may be worn. For in-between measurements use the next size up as our belts will not stretch over time.

Thought I'd post an update after taking off another star. The belt is just okay, but not really usable for me. The problems (as partially mentioned before) are 1) it's too thick for some of my holsters and 2) the inner layer is way too grippy. For the first issue, I could always buy another holster, but a replacement belt is usually cheaper or the same price. The main problem is with the second issue.
I usually carry OWB simply because it's more comfortable and if I'm carrying all day, I want comfort. First is that the tackiness/grippiness of the inner material makes it difficult to loop through a pair of pants because anywhere it grabs the fabric, it wants to stay. Okay, that can be worked. Where the problems with the inner layer really comes into play is adjusting my pants/fabric and the holster and/or mag pouches after I've "locked" the belt in. The grip layer doesn't let anything move/slide for placement. It's a major pain to move any fabric that has bunched up.
Likewise, adjusting the holster into final position is a major pain. I usually carry in the 3 or 4 o'clock position, but riding in a car, I move my holster a little forward so that it doesn't dig into me or the seat as much. It's impossible to slide a holster with this belt. It's just not worth the trouble.
I found it easier to just order a new belt and went with the Blade-Tech Ultimate Belt and have to say that I agree with the name of the belt. I love that you cut the belt to size, it slides on and off easily enough, allows me to adjust my holster as needed, and really, really like the micro-adjusting ratcheting system. Rather than having to tighten/loosen 1 inch at a time, you adjust 1/4 inch at a time. Perfect so far.
However... this was the first belt out of 4 (yes, FOUR!) that I have tried that could do the job. Also, this belt arrived with a perfect fit and finish. As it should in the $60-80 price range. Other gun belts I have tried had arrived looking like quality control had left the building. Pitiful. (Please see my other reviews and look at the pictures for yourself)
While this Magpul belt has plenty of rigidity, I do not consider it to be overly thick. And it is set up to make buckle changes very easy. It literally took less than a minute.
I have the following issue however which would drop my 4 star rating down to 3. On the buckle end of the belt, there are two "rivets" that connect the two sides of the belt together. One of those rivets (which is threaded) backed itself all the way out and fell out. For whatever reason Magpul didnt put anyway to screw it back in aside from just using your fingers.
I see they just released a v2 of the belt, which i will try next and hope they fixed this on the new version.
Another personal preference which I do not account to the belt is I am not a fan of the buckle, it feels cheap compared to the rest of the belt, and I do not like how shiny it is. Luckily it is easy to replace!!!
