Big Foot Slim Steel Core Formal Gun Belt
There should be no place where you compromise your security because of formal attire. The workplace is no exception for defensive carry, and it is important to always be prepared no matter if you are working or playing. With most formal belts, as soon as you put on your holstered firearm you are instantly faced with sag and a drooping waistline. For some carriers, going to work means settling for a wobbly waistline, which makes drawing your firearm difficult and adds on precious seconds. You should be able to depend on a consistent draw no matter where you are at, and not have to struggle with holstering and drawing on an unsecured waistline. With Bigfoot’s new Slim Steel Formal Gun Belt, you can experience unwavering waistband support and a fixed draw to stay prepared at work or in a professional setting. Sleek English bridle leather surrounds a stainless spring steel core that distributes the weight of a holstered firearm across the entire waistline. This is the key to banishing sag so you can work and rest assured carrying is both comfortable and secure.
We are proud to say each Bigfoot Formal Gun Belt is crafted with care in small-town North Idaho. We use the highest-grade materials to ensure these belts are both strong and durable, including military-grade Tex 270 thread used to sew together the layers, and corrosion resistant hardware. Triple edge finishing perfects the detailed aesthetic of each belt, meaning the leather edges are beveled, burnished and painted by hand. Dressing up doesn’t mean setting your firearm down anymore. With our Black Slim Steel Gun Belt, you will look better than ever, and will be more prepared than ever, no matter the setting. No more constantly pulling up your pants and drawing unwanted attention to your holstered firearm.
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.
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.
