Double Belt For A Fatty?

Anyone have any suggestions (aside from the obvious , which I'm working on)?
Your help is appreciated.

Anyway . . . I used to use a double belt system in the deep, dark past. What I did was get two of the smaller sized underbelts and overbelts and just connected them like a daisy chain. This is semi-affordable if you go with a nylon outer belt (mine was a 1.5 Bianchi). You can sew them together to make it permanent too.
Now I just use the same stuff I carry with all the time. It's easier.

Yeah, I wish I was ONLY 300 lbs, too! I'm stuck at 314, though. Made the choice to start losing weight last June. Had my gallbladder removed late October and by November I had lost about 55-70 pounds (not exactly sure because the doc's office scale didn't measure that high). Now, no matter what I do I can't seem to drop any more poundage. A binge puts on a few pounds but a good hour dropping Little Boy (or Fat Man) on the porcelain throne brings me right back down. Like I said, I'm working on it, but I do like having to have my clothes altered to fit (smaller, that is).
Now I just have to figure out if I want to go the Ghost Holster route with my Grock and whether to go for the CR-Speed mag holders or Safariland 771s.

We actually ordered them TOO big and had to send them back, so be sure to order your waist size. Or just plus one!
GET THE LIMCAT HOLSTER AND MAG POUCHES They can NOT be beat for adjustability - TRUST ME on this one - we both aren't little people and they are the only ones that we've been able to wear comfortably!!!!
When you look at the game nothing in it is terribly complicated. The silver bullet(s) are basically two things IMO. One is confidence to get done what you know you can do when you need to do it. So, take all that hard work and practice and then actually execute in a match. In order to do that, go with the second silver bullet - get out of your own way.
Step up to the line with your mind clean (doubt-free), fully prepared, and confident, and what happens will be within your control.

rhino, I find I need all the ankle protection I can get... I'm partial to my Merrell Chameleon Ventilator boots. I also have a pair of Nike Destroyer cleats that I have from my paintball days... they work great for IPSC cause the cleats are little nubs rather than big fat things that help you flub up your ankles on anything that isn't dirt or grass.

If I ever decide to go with a race rig, now I know where to get a good double belt system!
