Big Foot Gun Belts
Every good gun belt begins with premium raw materials. 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.
The 14oz Leather with Steel Core delivers optimal support and strength to your open or concealed carry firearm. With a double layer of rich English Bridle leather and an ultra-durable spring-steel core embedded between both layers, your gun belt will never sag under the weight of even the heaviest carry. These legendary gun belts all come in the standard 1.5 inch width; this patent pending, steel-reinforced gun belt option is approximately .219” thick. A team of skilled craftsmen cut the English Bridle leather to the exact specifications of your order. Once cut, a stainless spring-steel core is embedded between the two layers of rich, durable leather. This will give your gun belt a legendary level of strength. While many other gun belt companies use cheaper plastics within their products, we’ve chosen to spend a little more on materials in order to provide you with a stronger-than-the-standard gun belt. Our craftsmen stitch the layers together with a heavy-duty polyester thread (Tex 270). This extra-thick thread has been chosen for its strength and resilience to wear. To match the rest of the belts’ strength, the 14oz Leather with Steel Core has been equipped with a pair of corrosion resistant directional snaps and a steel roller buckle, which are both available in flat black or standard steel. This design allows the leather to effortlessly “roll” through the buckle without getting scuffed up or damaged over time. The two snaps make it easy to swap out the buckle for another within seconds. To give the 14oz Leather with Steel Core a uniform finish, our leather belts receive a Triple Edge Finish, which includes an in-house bevel, burnish and paint by the industries finest craftsmen. Once this process has been complete, our iconic Bigfoot logo will be pressed into the inside of your leather belt. After a thorough quality check, the 14oz Leather with Steel Core is then ready to carry anything.
Gun Belt Sizing Guide
What’s Your Belt Size Number? How To Size Your Gun Belt Before purchasing your Bigfoot Gun Belt, you’ll want to determine what belt size to order. There are several methods and factors involved in sizing your gun belt that are covered in the points below. The number you provide to us will be the distance between the start of the Bigfoot Gun Belt leather to the middle hole provided with a standard six inch tail. If you prefer a shorter or longer tail, add or subtract from your number accordingly. Let’s get started! Method 1 (the most accurate method): Grab a belt you have now and measure it from the beginning of the leather inside the buckle to the hole you most often use. This number is what you’ll need to provide to us in your order. Here’s a graphic that’ll help you out if needed: *Note: If you plan to wear an IWB holster with your Bigfoot Gun Belt, you’ll need to factor this into the number you provide to us. To accommodate your IWB holster into the belt size, wear your IWB holster with your belt. Take note of what hole you’ve used. Using the same method, measure from the end of your belt’s leather to the hole that you’ve used to fasten your belt. This is the number that you’ll want to provide to us. Method 2: If you don’t have a belt, you’ll need to use a cloth tape measure to get your number. If you don’t have a cloth tape measure, use a string and a regular tape measure instead. Thread the cloth tape measure (or string) through your belt loops like you would an actual belt. Note the measurement once you’ve pulled the measuring tape (or string) together. This is your number. Don’t forget to add an inch to your number for every IWB product you plan to wear with your Bigfoot Gun Belt! Method 3 (The rough number): We don’t recommend this method, but it is an option if you want to get a rough number in a hurry. Our belt size is roughly four inches more than your pant size (give or take an inch). So if you’re a size 34 pants, you’ll want to add four and order a size 38 belt.
