    • 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 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.

    Steel Core Belt

    I have to wear suspenders on my work pants due to the weight of the tools I carry. I had a regular belt, but I had to tighten it up to a point, it felt like I was cutting off the blood flow to my legs. With this steel core belt , I can snug it down to a comfortable fit and it works great.

    heavy duty beit

    looked up, down, all around for a belt that would be able to handle the task of holding, without sagging, my ruger redhawk .44 magnum, 7.5" barrel, loaded, two speedloaders, loaded and two 9oz. cans of guard alaska bear spray. happened to come upon HB site. saw that they offered a heavy duty belt, the steel core belt. after researching reviews, i was sold. followed the sizing chart for proper size and it arrived the proper size. after receiveing the belt, looking it over and loading my arsenal on it, found that it can more than handle the task at hand. as for customer service, you will find no better anywhere. so if need of a heavy duty belt or any belt, Hanks Belts is the place to go. no finer or beautiful belts to be found. price of belts is more than well worth it.

    Best belt in the world

    I’ve bought and used a lot of belts over the years. The belt you get will do some things well and some things not so well. The steel core line from Hanks doesn’t pull its punches, it doesn’t use gimmicks. It’s just the strongest belt out there and will never fail you. I’ve used this belt for OWB, IWB and even full sized two handed swords. And it doesn’t break a sweat. It evenly distributed the weight all the way around and even with age, it’s looking smart! I know it’s a lot of money, but you’ll buy two or three solid leather belts that won’t work great. Or you buy this one, that’ll never fail you. I’m going 4 years strong on ONE belt and I wear it every single day.

    The last work belt you'll ever buy.

    All my previous belts have always come apart or broke after wear and tear from work. I've had this belt for 6 months now and has broken in very nicely and shows no signs of ever coming apart. If you're looking for a thick and sturdy belt, this is it. Don't look any further.

    The Best Leather Belt You'll Buy

    My initial order was too small. Once I notified Hank's they immediately began processing my return and exchange for the correct size. Their belts are quality material and craftsmanship; their Customer Service is the Best I've ever experienced!
