Unfortunately, the buckle on many tactical belts doesn’t fit through the belt loops on a lot of pants. Not to mention, they can be a little stiff for casual EDC wear. With that said, tactical belts are not generally the go-to for typical EDC concealed carry. But the Vigil EDC Belt from High Speed Gear bridges the gap with a nice balance of comfort and rigidity.

The High Speed Gear Vigil EDC Belt

Constructed of rugged Cordura coupled with nylon webbing, the Vigil is robust enough to support both IWB and OWB holsters. In addition, multi-line stitching provides stiffness and long-lasting durability, while remaining comfortable all day.

The low-profile belt features a 1.5-inch design and comes in a variety of colors and camo patterns. Likewise, the FIDLOCK magnetic V-Buckle fits easily through standard belt loops and provides quick attach/detach functionality. As a result, the Vigil can be worn with any pants. Additionally, the hidden hook and loop adjustment tail ensures a clean appearance and precise sizing.

The Vigil is Berry compliant, so you can rest assured that not only is it constructed in the U.S., but all materials are also U.S. sourced, as well.

“We have been working on the Vigil EDC belt for over 2 years,” explained Daniel Chaney, HSGI® senior designer. “Since many of us at HSGI and Comp-Tac carry every day, we recognized a need for an EDC specific belt and started from the ground up on this design.”

Editor’s Note:

While the buckle is small and fits through standard belt loops, that might not be the case with OWB holsters. Although the height would easily fit a standard belt loop on an OWB holster, the thickness may be an issue. I have an EDC belt from another company, with a thinner buckle, and cannot wear my 1791 holster with it.

However, you shouldn’t have any issues if you use an IWB or paddle OWB holster (or similar).
