Tactical Belt FAQs

What is the thickness of a tactical belt?

The best tactical belts are made of stiff nylon so they don’t fold when equipment is hung on them. Typically this nylon will be about 2mm thick or will be a two ply construction of 4-5mm thick. Most tactical belts are 1.5” or 38mm wide. Some options are available at 1.75” or 44mm that are for climbing support. The 1.5” standard is popular because it both fits through the loops of nearly any pants for adults but also is compatible with most accessories and holsters on the market for mounting.

What is a tactical belt made of?

The best tactical belts are made of nylon webbing that is stiff and durable. Tactical belts need to be able to support the weight of equipment and holsters without bending or folding. Some belts use two ply material that is softer and doubling it and possibly even inserting a stiffener between the layers makes it stiff enough for tactical use. When selecting a tactical belt make sure you can’t easily fold it in half or it won’t be strong enough to hold your heavier items. Also, the belt ideally should have a ribbed or textured feel, which will help keep tension buckles tight and your gear from sliding around your waist when in use.

What should I look for in a tactical belt?

Tactical belts have two jobs – to hold your pants up and keep your equipment secure and at the ready. The buckle should be inspected for durability and quality. It should function easily so that you can quickly operate it when you need to loosen or remove the belt but also be clasp tightly so it won’t come undone when you don’t want it to, even under stress and equipment weight. If you’re choosing a mechanical buckle for quick release, many of them do not fit through normal width belt loops. The buckly will need to be removed from at least one end so the webbing can be fed through. This isn’t a big deal but it might be more than you’re expecting, so double check the width of both the webbing and the buckle before you buy. The belt should be made of high quality webbing that is stiff and won’t buckle or fold under the weight of your equipment. It should also be textured so it won’t easily slip through the buckle or your gear.

What is a tactical belt for?

Tactical belts are used by anyone who wants to securely and comfortably add gear to their waist. Holsters and equipment pouches for ammunition, handcuffs, first aid, etc, all are designed to attach to a tactical belt. Once you’ve set up your belt with your gear, you should train your muscle memory to be able to find each item quickly without having to look. It’s important that once you’ve found a comfortable location for each of your items on your belt, you consistently attach the items in the same location for this reason.
