As most people who conceal carry know, a good belt is a necessity. I had heard somewhere about the IndestructiBelt SuperBio by Daltech Force. So as any reviewer would do, I ask them if they would like me to review one. A few days later a brown one arrived for me to test.
The Daltech Force IndestructiBelt SuperBio belt is not your run of the mill carry belt. Instead it is made from a thermopolymer polyurethane with an internal polyester webbing. Basically this is a polymer belt that looks a lot like leather. But don't stop there. The SuperBio belt also is very strong, it is stated to have a 6000 psi tensile strength. The belt is also quite stiff, so don't worry about it sagging. I think you could carry just about any gun you wanted and not have to worry about it pulling on the belt. Since the SuperBio belt is made from polymer, it will resist oils, water, sweat, and other stuff that will destroy a leather belt. To clean the belt, all you have to do is wipe it down with some soap and water.
As with most quality belts, it comes with Chicago screws to hold on the buckle. The one they sent me has a nice stainless roller buckle on it, but they also offer a brass buckle. The buckle can always be switched out if you don't like it. The belt comes with 9 holes spaced 3/4" apart. This comes in handy when adding or subtracting gear. At 5/32" thick it is about the same as a single thickness leather belt. Mine is 1.5" wide, but they also offer it in a 1.25".
After wearing the SuperBio belt for awhile, I found it to be almost too stiff. It is just not as slick as a cloth or leather belt, so I don't think it moves with the fabric of your clothes as well. Did it support a gun? Oh yes, I even carried an all steel 1911 on it for a few days.
As far as sizing goes, the SuperBio belt is easy to order. All you do is add 2" to your waist size. So for me I went with a 38 belt size because my waist is 36". With belt sizes ranging from 30" to 80", yes that is 80", Daltech Force makes it for just about any size person.
The SuperBio IndestructiBelt is a pretty good belt option. If you need something that resists harsh environments or you are looking for a very stiff belt, you might give this a try. It doesn't really look like leather close up, but from a foot or so away you can't notice. The belt will hold whatever you can put on it and is very adjustable to fit your needs.

Dan @ DaltechForce 5/5 stars
Can't believe how well this belt held up! I've had my first one for almost two years and it has been through everything. It has been on multi day hikes with dripping sweat, it has swam in salt and fresh water, its my daily belt for both my office job and my weekend belt for recreation. If I showed you this belt you would swear I just pulled it out of the packaging! Fortunately/unfortunately I've lost a significant amount of weight in the last year and I am back to purchase this belt again! One thing that I would recommend is to put some thread lock blue on the screws as soon as you get it. I've read of others losing a screw and they include a spare, but better safe than sorry. Otherwise a really maintenance free, good looking, and long lasting belt that is rigid and does a great job holding my CCW without it flopping about.
Amazon reviewer 5/5 stars
This is a great belt! I love it! I like to carry a lot of stuff in my pockets and on my belt. With this belt, I no longer have to keep hiking my pants up. I wish I had ordered one sooner. It really does make a big difference.
