    Do you want to know why I designed this belt and hiw to make it yourself? Watch this video and find out!

    If you dont want to make it yourself, you can find this belt in my etsy shop:
    Of course also other closures and webbings are possible.

    Featuring 1'' polyester webbing, which has a nice structured look but is more flexible than the usual (ballistic) nylon webbing used in combat belts and military belts, this one is a very simple and minimalistic belt. I specifically was bothered by the thickness of the Arcteryx Converyr Belt's buckle, and wanted a belt that fits perfectly underneath the buckle of my backpack's hip belt. The simplest solution with an actual buckle was a simple G-hook tension lock closure. Through using an anodised aluminium g-hook, I could use a hard-wearing and lightweight material. The only thing I still want to change in this design is the orientation of the hook - but for this I have to buy customised hardware, and this will be possible next year, I hope.

    I am preparinng a few other belt designs, inspired by other makers, experimenting with materials like leather and cloth, and with different closure mechanisms.

    General Intel: Soft but strong belt with a Tension Lock closure.

    Buckle: Anodised Aluminium G-hook tension lock closure - slim and unobtrusive. Available in Black, Red, Grey and Silver.
    Strap secured with velcro.
    Webbing: 1" Heavy Duty Polyester Webbing - soft but strong.

    Solid Construction: all seams on load carrying points are stitched multiple times. The fabric loop holding the buckle while wearing is stitched with a box-x-stitch, which is very secure.

    Weight: 155 g / 5,5 oz (the buckle itself only weighs 30 g / 1 oz)

    Width: 2,5 cm / 1"


    Music: Dominic from Caffeine Chamber was kind enough to compose a few tracks for me, which I am allowed to use in my videos. Thanks, Dominic, you are great!
