    •  17+ ozs of pure USA Steerhide! The Double Layer "Brute" belt from Hanks Belts is one of our toughest belts and one of our best values!

      We batched One Color only of this superb leather and ordered the hides in bulk. This results in us being able to produce large runs of this belt at once, right here in the USA, at a price that can't be beaten. 

      Made from two layers of Approx 9 oz vegetable tanned Steerhide from a Pennsylvania Tannery this belt will hold most anything you hang on it.

      Double row stitched for ultimate durability results in a belt that stays together and looks great at the same time.

      We use our premium low profile Stainless Steel roller buckle for long wear. It's also good for those that have Nickle allergies.

      It's all held together with Chicago screws so you have the option of swapping out to any buckle of your choosing. 

      • 1 1/2" wide for the most versatile fit in most all pants or jeans
      • 8 Holes with 1" on center spacing
      • USA Made 
      • Double leather construction for a solid feel and no rollover

    The Brute.

    The name for this belt is correct. Very nice, and will support any thing you want to carry on your side. Just like all the belts I have bought from HANKS, Number 1

    Great belt

    Qaulity and workmanship are superb. I conditioned the belt with lexol. I wear it to support a concealed cross draw holster for a 1911 .45 ACP, cocked and locked. It provides comfortable and solid support. I would recommend this belt to anyone who carries man sized sidearm. Love the color.

    Excellent Purchases

    Bought two belts and love both very much. Only issue is I lost 30 pounds since the purchase and am on the verge of needing a new hole 42" down to 38"- May treat myself to a new belt. As someone who takes their belts seriously these are worth the money no questions!!

    The Brute

    Hello everyone , this is my 4th purchase from Hank's ( the extreme -2, key holders -2 , belt loops -2) , quality of the leather outstanding, customers service excellent, regarding style if you need to impress someone with fancy design maybe it's not for you but if you looking for strong steady as well good looking belts -i am sure you can find many styles . By the way I purchased The Brute , The Premier, Canyon : out 3 of them I keep The Premier. After I showed it to my wife "to choose 1 out of 3 she point at Premier " I did same but want her opinion . Regarding bukles , just buy any fancy shmancy belt buckle and replace it , you will have amazing quality belt .
