Belt Help

Hey whats up guys !

 

So I was running a ODM Belt last season and found it to be not stiff enough for my application.

 

I am torn between the Rock Hopper & Gear Up belts as they seem to be the most stiff.  

 

I tend to have two bags, plus boga, pliers, etc. on the belt. 

 

All advise appreciated.

 

Thanks

Two bags, must be part of the "no plug left behind" program. :)

I have the Rockhopper and it does have some give to it but once all the gear is balanced out it does a great job and comfortable for the mid summer months chasing daytime fish. Heavy velcro on the inside locks everything in place where you want it. Normally have on it plug bag, knife, pliers, boga, clip for eelbag and pork rind carrier used for water bottle.

i cant review it because mine is being shipped to me right now but i went with the tide runner. many people like it, supporting small business and price is right

i love my tiderunner but honestly dont think its right for supporting the weight of gear youre talking about

 

havent tried nearly all the belts out there, but i can vouch for the gear up belts and if you want cheaper the galls or blackhawk law enforcement duty belts on sale work great

 

- difference comes down to buckle options and ease of adjustability

Flatlander would likely be your best option if you can find one for sale. The wait for a new one I think will be until the fall. Personally I use a rockhopper and cannot complain. I typically have a 3 tube, a buck tail pouch and plier sheath on my belt.

My Tiderunner has served me very well the last couple of seasons. Have never carried two bags, but have had it loaded with a two tube bag, bucktail pouch, pliers, boga, and a couple of d-rings with no problems.
