Every good gun belt begins with premium raw materials here at Bigfoot Belts. Naturally, selecting the right leather is crucial. That’s why we use English Bridle leather, the highest quality drum-dyed cowhide available. An English bridle leather gun belt offers a rugged strength, capable of carrying full sized handguns without any belt sag. You’ll notice that our leather is soft, yet super strong, and as it ages it will acquire the wonderful patina that you find with fine leathers. The performance of a standard belt is just not good enough, which is why we make each gun belt with a double layering of leather. Two straps, combined with a flexible steel core, will provide you with more support than you’ll know what to do with – guaranteed. To ensure quality and durability of construction, we stitch each leather gun belt using a military-grade thread known as Tex 270. This’ll be sure to keep your premium layers together over time.
We believe a good gun belt also requires attention to the details. Each belt is hand burnished, beveled, and painted. Sure, this takes longer, but we believe it’s worth the effort. This process protects the edges and gives them an even look. To complete each gun belt, our craftsmen attach a premium roller buckle and directional snaps to match. We make sure to use a roller buckle to prevent the gun belt from being scratched or scuffed by “rolling” it through the buckle.
