Crafted in the ratchet-belt style—originally used in the Russian military—the SlideBelt doesn’t come cut with any holes, which means one size fits all. With traditional belts, every time you pull them closed the holes are put under serious strain, which can lead to cracking and discoloration in the leather. With the SlideBelt these problems are eliminated, and the leather lasts much longer. Available in a wide range of leather and buckle colors, there’s a style for everyone—plus, all SlideBelt buckles and straps are interchangeable, so you you can switch it up when things get stale.
Note: At checkout, you will have your choice of top-grain leather or full-grain leather (+ $30) and your choice of color and buckle. See checkout options for more details on each style.
Instead of holes, SlideBelts use teeth sewn into the underside of the belt strap. A tab in the buckle grabs onto the teeth and locks the belt in place. When you want to adjust it, simply pull on the release mechanism and the strap will come free. Each belt is long enough to support a 48-inch waist. All you have to do is trim it down to your size and attach the buckle, which has been refined over five generations. The buckle even has a built-in bottle opener for cracking open a brew in a pinch.
