    • IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE ORDERING THIS STEEL CORE BELT.

      Also available in 1 1/4" Width Here

      This is an extreme belt. It is .37" thick and very stiff. It is 20 oz. weight and has an internal steel core insert resulting in the strongest belt you will ever strap around your waist.

      This steel core belt does require some break-in when buckling due to the thickness. When new it will require some effort to buckle and place through the keeper. This will break in after a few weeks and not be an issue.

      If you want a super sturdy belt that is super strong and durable but doesn't require a break-in period (and you don't mind if the inner layer isn't steel), we recommend that you take a look at our Extreme Belt. It is .23 to .26" thick and extremely durable. You can see it here: HANKS EXTREME BELT

      So, if you feel you are still in need for the ultimate steel core belt read on:


       
      Hanks CCW Steel Core Gun belt is like nothing else on the market. If you're the type of person who simply likes to buy the best and never have to look back this is the belt for you.

      A tri-layer belt made of two layers of USA steer hide harness leather with a steel core sandwiched in the middle this belt will hold more than you could ever carry. At 20 oz. we believe this is the thickest and strongest belt on the market today. As a test, we actually parked a Jeep on it and it did not give way.

      Made here in the USA by Master belt makers this is a complicated belt to make but once done it is a true work of art. We start with two pieces of 10 oz. full grain vegetable tanned harness leather from USA steer hides. We then build in a spring steel core between the two layers which results in a belt that will probably last longer than you.

      The heavy-duty roller buckle is practically indestructible. This buckle makes cinching your belt down a breeze and reduces wear on the belt where it is used most. Holding this all together are two Chicago screws so you can easily swap our buckle out to a buckle of your choosing. Unlike snaps which can become weak and unreliable over time, Chicago screws are dependable and long-lasting.

      The Steel Core Belt is made from harness leather that is some of the toughest and strongest you will find. Other companies use a lighter duty leather which is easier to work with but results in a belt that can start to wrinkle in areas of stress. Each layer in our belt would stand on its own, but combine them and you could use it to tow a truck.

    Outstanding belt!!

    The attention to detail and overall strength and quality of the belt is outstanding. Due to the various style and price points at hanks I can’t see ever using a different belt company. Well done.

    Sturdy

    This is one well made bombproof belt. If dad had gotten one of these when I was younger I would have never ended up in prison!
