$85 and up and way underpriced.
Buy once, cry once.
I also vote for the Kore belt.
I like the "leather" look since I can wear it to the office everyday, and the micro adjustments are great since I am always losing/gaining weight, depending on the meal.
I picked up a wilderness 5 stitch instructors belt for $62.00 shipped. It took awhile to get it but it’s the tits as web belts go.
This pretty much nails it.
I can carry lightweight single-stacks on draw-string shorts in the summer if needed. But when the large bore "Heat" comes out in the cooler months, I need a reinforced leather belt.
My all-time favorite so far is a Hank's steel-lined, double-layer leather belt that is so rigid it will stay circular even after taken off. It was $100 off amazon, but I will be giving some of these reinforced nylon belts a look - the double-layer leather belts creak every time you move, and it's driving my wife nuts. Great belt though.
Poor reviews on this company (Ciguera Gear AKA Alonso Defense Group) regarding customer service / returns / defective products. They have an "F" from the BBB. I'm sure their belts are fantastic (and I'm contemplating taking a chance on one), but it looks like any purchase will be a roll of the dice: they're not going to help you out if there's a mistake.
ETA: decided to go with a Kore order instead.
At almost 69 I do not think much about weight ,so I will pay for a custom leather belt & I have
one now for summer & one for winter. I just have not decided which one to be buried in lOL.
Other than that I'm through with cloth belts for carrying my 1911s.
I just got my Kore in. One nylon and one leather.
They are nice belts - the ratchet system is different but effective and i like it. The stiffer nylon version is very light, so thats nice and it is comfortable to wear - but holding the belt as if I were wearing it with two hands in place of my hips, the belt easily folds over with the weight of a steel commander inbetween my hands.
My Hanks steel-lined belt in the same condition keeps the steel Commander in a vertical position.
IMHO, the Kore belt is nice- and is a "dressy" CCW belt, but my leather steel-lined Hanks is easily twice as rigid as a proper gunbelt, and distributes the weight more effectively.
I'll wear them all though.

I wear a Kore tactical nylon ratchet belt every day. it is plenty stiff for any of my guns. Also have a Kore leather belt for dress wear.
This link is for the belts only. They sell them with buckles too.
I will never go back to a tradition belt buckle. The ratchet buckle has spoiled me.
Bullhide belts have served me well.
I'm very happy with my Nexbelt. No holes, adjustable over an 8" range if your weight is fluctuating, and I paid $49.00 with a new-customer discount. They're also very nice people.
ive been using a Wilderness Kydex lined instructors belt for 3 years almost daily for work with a bunch of gear and off duty and it is great displaces the weight great, looks great still, and it was $70 or so. Highly recommend
After I got too fat for my Sparks, I've tried multiple inexpensive belts but wasn't satisfied, just not stable enough for me. Ordered a Bulman since he was making me a holster anyway. Money well spent.
A belt is more important than the holster in my opinion. I have a Rafters leather belt from about 15 years ago. Still works great.
My current carry belt is a Bullhide Belts, basic one. I think it was $60 on sale. Usually it's $85. Even at $85 it's worth every penny.
Your belt is your carry foundation. I've carried for over twenty years. Buy a good belt up front. Save yourself the misery.
