Added Hook and Loop Options
We now offer the option of adding hook or loop fastener to the inside of this belt (*Outside lining is not an option because it will not fit through this buckle). When used on the inside, it can help lock our belt into place when using it over a hook or loop-lined underbelt on your pants. Some pouches also feature hook or loop inside of their belt loops to aid in keeping them in place.
*Note that this option makes the belt a custom order which is non-returnable. Correct sizing is even more vital than usual, so please look at our sizing guide videos for proper fitment. Short video/long video **The slight added thickness and stiffness of the hook or loop fastener may not allow the belt body to fit through very tight belt channels on some holsters and accessory pouches.
The Wilderness LowPro EDC Belt was born out of the desire for an extremly flat and narrow buckle, while maintaining the quality and comfort standards of our Original Instructor and Frequent Flyer belts. We combine a high-grade, featherweight Delrin buckle (1.25" or 1.5") with our classic belt body that's manufactured from two layers of custom-made premium webbing.
As the foundation of your everyday carry, the LowPro EDC Belt is particularly well-suited to AIWB holsters and centerline-carry of knives and magazines. However, it still works just as well for strong-side belt or IWB holsters as our classic tactical belts. The stitching reinforcement near the buckle ensures stable mounting of holsters or pouches in that position while still being pliable enough to conform to them and be comfortable.
STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW:
- The belt is omnidirectional and may be worn facing either direction that suits the user's needs.
- Colors: Black, Coyote, and Foliage.
- Available in our standard variety of body stiffness levels:
- Polymerized end-tab treatment eliminates fraying.
- The LowPro EDC Belt is a 100% non-metallic, security-friendly belt made with a strong Delrin triglide buckle.
Proudly made at our production facility in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
BUCKLE USE NOTES: The running end of the belt should be threaded through both loops of the triglide buckle for longevity. Fastening through a single loop will drastically increase the wear on the hook-and-loop due to shearing forces and make the belt less secure under extreme conditions. We advocate threading through both loops for a very secure closure that holds fast through strenuous or violent physical activity.
When cinching down the belt, hold the buckle or the other end of the belt in place while you pull on the running end with the reinforced, polymerized end tab.
SIZING NOTES: 44-49" add $5.00, 50-60" add $10.00, 60"+ add $15.00 on all belts (please call for 60"+ orders for advice on belt style); 44" and larger, or 32" and smaller, are custom made and non-returnable.
What is Easy-Fit Sizing?
The Easy-Fit belts offer simplified sizing for those who don't mind an extra length of belt tongue on their dominant side. Note that the extra tongue length my interfere with strongside holsters. However, the belts have no incorrect orientation and the tongue may be run either right or left-facing to deconflict with belt-mounted gear.
Some competing belts achieve a wider, more generic sizing range just by adding more hook-and-loop fastener to the belt body. However, this makes you pull hook fastener through the buckle at the smaller size. We didn't like that and engineered ours to avoid it.
Available in Medium, Large, XL, XXL, 3X-15X, the Easy-Fit Instructor Belt still has all of the quality features of the standard version, such as double-layer construction and heavy-duty sewing. The Easy-Fit system also makes sizing for gifts much easier.
Standard belt properly fitted
• 38" size: 36" - 39.5" range of adjustment
• 11" of tongue (at the min. length) / 9" of tongue (when properly fitted)
• 3.5" of adjustment range
• Large: 36" - 41" range of adjustment
• 13" of tongue (at min. length) / 10" of tongue (at the median when properly fitted)
• 5" of adjustment range
Why don't we size all of our belts that way? All of our regular belts are designed to be compatible with holsters and accessories with proper fitting. When the belts are precisely sized for a given waist measurement, the tongue of the belt goes to the center of the 10" loop fastener on the belt, leaving room on the belt for holsters or other gear. The Easy-Fit model has a longer tongue and more hook-and-loop fastener, so it may overlap the belt to the extent that it limits things that can be put on that side of the belt where the tongue overlaps. While the Easy-Fit is just as capable of load carrying, it does not offer as much dominant-side area as the precise-sized belts, which are our personal preference when practical. This may or may not be a problem for you depending upon your holster or personal preference, but we want our customers to know the potential conflict when making their choice.
