I noticed on the Saddleback site that the seeming majority of the reviews referred to the amazing ability of the belts to support a holster with a large pistol in it!  My favorite belt for that purpose is one that I picked up some years ago (~14 or so) when I lived in Texas.  It was quite inexpensive (about 15% of the "best" from Saddleback) and was actually a promotional item for the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame in Waco, just east of I-35 at the Waco exit.  It's tooled leather, and a thick piece of rawhide (at least 3/16 inch  thick and 1,5 wide).  It was sold (in the gift shop of course like all museums) next to the Chuck Norris/Walker wing.  It will likely outlive me based on the minimal wear and tear so far!  It goes quite nicely with blue jeans, of course.   It holds my holster with the 9mm, and the belt twin magazine holder, with no perceptible sag.

I have another belt that I bought in Warsaw, Poland 20+ years ago in a very posh leather goods shop on Jerusalemski St..  Back then, I was at my peak all-time weight: that belt size was 105 cm.   I still use it, but the current hole (I have a leather punch that I use to prolong the useful life of my belts during the years I was shedding 85 lb that I never mentioned in the "Hole-making thing" blog) is about 8 inches from the one i originally had to use!  It's a graphic reminder how I am now a mere shadow of my former self!

There was a browser crash and auto-restart involved.....  either the NSA or Bill Gates likely at fault...

Thank goodness -- you had me worried for a while there...

Of course, as soon as I posted the above, the missing missives miraculously were resuscitated (damn, this window needs a spell-checker!).

@mharackin: Twice  now you have posted replies to posts by antedeluvian that are apparently invisible to us mere mortals????

That's strange -- I can see Antedeluvian's posts -- are you in "Newest First" or "Threaded" view for the comments? I'm in "Newest First" mode, and I can see his comments on my screen as we speak.

@antedeluvian: I found that a fanny pack was very conveneient until I got pickpocketed on the subway in Barcelona.

I'm hoping that my small Belt Pouch will go unnoticed...

I always travel with two notepad computers these days (in case one goes down). I have a big backpack that goes in the overhead compartment, and my Saddleback Leather Messenger Bag, which slips under the seat in front ov me -- check out this blog for more details.

@antedeluvian: I always travel with a Tilly Hat when I am going touring.

I have an Hawaiian Baseball Cap, which certainly makes a statement (one day I hope to discover what the statement is that it's making)

@TonyTib: Is it easier to find a new wife that suites you well or a new rucksack that suits you well?

I'm not good with Zen questions. I do remember reading that if you want to know who loves you more -- your wife or your dog -- put them both in the trunk of your car for an hour and then see who is the most pleased to see you when you let them out.
