    • IMPORTANT! READ BEFORE ORDERING THIS STEEL CORE BELT.

      This is the 1 1/4" width model. For the 1 1/2" width click 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 of 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. Now available here in a slightly narrower 1 1/4" width! The only 1 1/4" width Steel Core belt on the market that we know of!

      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 right here in the USA by master belt makers this isn't an easy belt to make. It's thick, springy, and is a beast to assemble but well worth the effort. Once on though it is as comfortable as can be and you won't even notice it other than your gear will be more secure than ever!

      To make sure nothing is left to chance we use our super rugged roller buckle. It makes tightening this belt down a breeze and reduces wear on the tongue as you put your belt on and off. The Chicago screw construction holds it all together and makes changing your buckle easy if you ever want to. Screws are the way to go as snaps eventually wear out and are not user fixable.

      Harness leather is some of the toughest leather out there. Some companies use a softer leather to make the belt easier to assemble but those leathers may start to wrinkle over time and break down. Just one layer of our 10oz leather is miles ahead of any department store belt. Imagine two of them combined with that steel in between. You have to experience this belt to appreciate it!

    This is my second and third belt from Hanks belts. I lost weight so I needed to replace my dress belt and my ccw belt. Love the quality

    Happy customer

    This is my 3rd belt and it's my everyday belt. The only reason I have 2 other is because of weight loss and they are to big. Very happy with the quality and durability. They are well worth the price.

    Hanks Belts

    I like them. Recently I bought a belt for my landlord. He told me he wanted a single layer 1.5" belt 38" with double roller and stipulated it had to be stainless. Well he picked what would do but not what he really wanted. He likes the quality. I myself also when I purchase another belt will do so if belt buckle is stainless. The very first belt I purchased from you came with stainless and am happy with my purchase. We work in an environment where we deal with saltwater and we of course sweat profusely in this hot muggy Gulf Coast Texas weather so stainless is the only way to go. Thanks.

    Phenomenal

    Honestly I was skeptical about the size increase for the steel core but trust them when they say go up a size of you can do 2 sizes. I've always had hanks belts my old one was sox years old and I just now got the steel core and the support is way better. You get exactly what you pay for and I beat the **** out of my stuff but I take care of it too. Highly recommend. Always returning customer
