Default Ratchet belt recommendations

I'm thinking that the best investment I can make to enhance my CCW experience is a good belt. I have been looking at ratchet belts online. The one that I've liked the most so far is from R.G.B. Anyone have experience with ratcheting belts? Any recommendations?

I bought a couple of NEXBELTS. Very nice units and great for what I carry. I don't carry any heavy guns on them. I really like them. Men's PreciseFit™ Gun Belt Series - Nexbelt

I bought two different models and found them to hold very poorly under any strain (fortunately I was able to return each). I'm sticking with the old fashioned belts for now.

Buy a good quality leather belt that has the buckle holes on 3/4" spacing, not the standard 1". You will be amazed how easy it is to find the sweet spot! Several knowledgeable holster vendors offer these belts.

I have a couple of Nexbelts, they work for me. They are supposedly working on one that can be used as a tourniquet.
