This 2" belt is hand made to your specified size from premium 11oz. Hermann Oak Leather. It is grooved stitched to add strength to the belt while helping protect the thread. The edges are beveled, burnished, and waxed. The front and back receive a Fiebing's Neatsfoot Oil finish and then sealed with Ray Holes' Saddle Butter.
When measuring for your belt size, use a flexible tape measure to measure around the point on your waist that you want your belt to sit. Take the measurement over the normal clothing you will be wearing when using it. The measurement you select will be the measurement to the middle hole and have two 1" adjustment holes on each side of it.
***Do Not Use Your Pant Size As The Belt Measurement***
The leather work is excellent and feels like it will last a lifetime. The shell bag snaps on/off and is a great look with matching belt. I have a fancy hand tooled single holder and shell pouch from another leather shop in El Paso, Texas, it looks fantastic, but everything is made on the small side. The divided Shell pouch barely holds more 25 shells and they spill over to the missed divider side or the ground. The box holder is so tight it is a pain to get the shell box into the holder without messing up the flaps on the box. Heritage is perfectly sized, not "fancy schmancy" hand tooled engraved, just a great solid quality made leather crafted product that you can afford and can hand down to your grandkids. The belt matches all the other pieces and is perfectly sized - great quality.
I bought the belt to use with singles and doubles shell holders. I replaced an old belt I bought at a tractor supply house and am so glad I did. This belt is really well made and should last for years…assuming I don’t “bulk up”. I like that I have three holes of adjustment in either direction which should be great for a long time. This is one of those simple belts that your friends will probably ask about.
This a well made belt. I got the size of the belt wrong so it ended up being just a little big. No problem having friend adjust the size of the belt. But over all very well made belt... Your products are well made and will last a very long time.. Rate it a 10+++.. Thank you Mike Brennan
