I've owned a Wilderness "Combat Issue" Instructor's belt since 1994, and wore it regularly until 1999. I can't speak highly enough about the quality of this belt. It is still in great shape, and What I didn't like, though was how stiff it is, with its polymer insert between the layers of nylon. While it carried weapon, spare mags, cuffs, radio and anything else I could find room for, it just wasn't comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

In '99, I finally started wearing GI issue BDU trousers belts. They're a lot lighter, softer, and thinner, but they're also more comfortable, and less than $10.00 apiece.

If I'd just bought the standard Instructor's belt (the 5-stitch model wasn't available at the time) I would probably still be using it.
I can't really recommend the "Combat Issue" Instructor's Belt, because of the stiff polymer insert, but I don't think you can go wrong with either the standard or the 5-stitch versions.
