IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE ORDERING THIS STEEL CORE BELT.
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 steerhide 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 Amish 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.
So step up to the plate and get the belt that eats other belts for breakfast. The Hanks CCW Steel Core 20 oz. Gun Belt. The toughest belt we know of.

Additional Sizing Help
When sizing your Hanks Belt for concealed carry several factors will determine the size you need to purchase. Your firearm, holster, if you carry IWB or OWB, and any accessories you carry on your belt will affect the size you need to order. For the best fit, we recommend measuring a current belt that fits you well the way you will be using it.
For easy instructions click on the sizing link on the page above the size selection area and follow the instructions. Remember...if you buy your pant size the belt will be too small and will not fit.
For reference here are the measurement specifications if you wish to compare to a current belt you already own:
IMPORTANT: Do not include buckle length in measurement. Measurements are from where the leather folds over the buckle.

This is super easy to do, only takes a few minutes, and virtually guarantees a perfect fit. Just follow the below instructions and make sure the belt you measure fits you well the way you will be using it with any gear attached.
Lay out your belt on a smooth flat surface. It is probably slightly curved but don't worry about that. Just measure through the curve.
Place a tape measure where the buckle meets the leather (do not include buckle length in measurement) and measure, in inches, to the hole you currently use to buckle your belt:

Now scroll down to the belt sizing chart and match the measurement you got above with the number in the "Measurement to the 4th Hole" column in the chart.
If you are between measurements, size up one unless you plan on losing weight in which case you should size down one.
For example, if you measured 37" to the hole you currently use you should purchase a 38" belt size. If you measured 38" you should purchase a 40" belt size.
Note that our belts are made by hand and variances in measurements can occur. Variances are slight, though, and will not affect the sizing.
That's it! Select your size, double check it is correct on the add to cart button, and add to cart.
And just to be safe, Hanks Belts offers free exchanges if needed, so you never have to worry about additional cost if you do order an incorrect size.
