The Blade-Tech Reinforced Looper Series gun belt is clearly aimed at fitting the needs of the plainclothes police officer. Yes, it has the same Kydex used in holsters and it serves the same purpose; it makes the belt rigid.
Today's law enforcement officers carry more gear on their belt than ever before. Not only are all of these items heavy, the holsters they're held in are difficult to move when necessary. That's why Safariland has developed two simple locking systems that allow you to add or remove various holsters on your duty belt or MOLLE loops without rearranging other items in the process.
