    • 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.

    Great product.

    Great belt for my IWB holster. Really secures it. Pants do look odd draped over the chair.

    The Foundation to EDC

    6 months ago I reassessed every component of my Every Day Carry system. Each item had to meet the highest demands in regards to form, function, durability, and safety (As I carry daily). This belt truly provides the best foundation you will find. You may change gear as your needs change, but you won't be changing belts... unless it's simply just to another color.

    Absolutely solid

    Fair warning first, this belt is quite thick and very stiff right out the gate. it definitely requires a break in period and won't fit pants with small belt loops. I've had to get new belt clips for some of my gear since the clips were made with "normal" size belts in mind and don't clasp over this belt fully due to the extra thickness. All that said, this belt is rock solid and easily the most durable leather belt I've ever owned. If you're looking for a carry belt that actually gives support and won't wear out in a couple years, this is it. This belt will handle anything you can throw at it no problem.
