    New belt time Bianchi Leather vs. Accumold Elite?

    Everything is in basketweave.

    Hey guys, does anyone have that new Bianchi accumold elite duty gear? Do you like it?

    I'm looking online and getting ready to order my gear and I'm torn between the two.

    There is only a $25 difference.

    I worked in a correctional setting for two years with the accumold elite in basketweave. Compared to some of the other people who bought leather, mine seemed to wear and clean better. There also seem to be more options in how you would like it to look (with or without a buckle). Never got those spots that the belts finish started to wear off like the leather. No need for that shoe polish. They tout it weighing less, but the couple pounds you save is really hard to tell.

    Stop by my online store. Maybe I can save you a couple bucks.

    I love my accumold elite. I'd suggest getting the buckleless belt though. I have the elite belt with the buckle in front, which cuts out at least 6 inches of space for gear holders, because the belt doubles back on each side of the buckle to secure it.

    I have the accumold as well, and love it.
    In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

    In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

    Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

    I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

    I've had the plain accumold elite for 5 yrs, still looks brandnew.


    Edit: I've never seen the buckless accumold elite, how is it?
