    •  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

    Everything I hoped it would be!

    I was so happy when my new belt arrived, there was some apprehension about the fit. I put the belt on and it was perfect. I just followed the directions on the website. The finish was amazing, put a coat of my favorite leather dressing on it after about a week and it’s very supportive during the times I chose to CCW. Can’t say enough good about the customer service and products!

    Superbly made!

    The Brute is another fine Hanks Belt. The leather is thick and the color is a dark brown. It’s my 3rd belt from this company. I have 2 other Gunners which are excellent belts too. The Brute’s leather is thicker, and it fits a bit tighter than the Gunners. I’d recommend ordering at least 2 sizes up from your waist measurement. I highly recommend this belt if you’re looking for an extra sturdy and handsome conceal carry belt.

    Hank's Belts "The Brute 17oz Double Leather Belt

    This is, without question, the best belt I have ever owned (and I have 4 other Hanks Belts, all of which are great, too). It looks Awesome. The finish is superb. It will do double duty as both a casual and a dress belt. It, also, wears well and will support whatever gun you carry. It is very stiff with zero sag. MY ECD is a Glock 19. This belt is up to the challenge. I couldn't be happier with it.
