Most belts are laminated flat. When the belt is put on, it takes on a curved shape which causes the inner ply to compress up to 3/4" in length. This is why, over time, belts take on an unnatural shape.

Our round laminated custom leather gun belts are laid up around a curved form which allows the inner ply to take on the length it will assume when wrapped around the human torso. This will allow the belt to retain its shape and for the belt to remain more rigid which provides a much more stable platform to bear the load of a holster.

To further stiffen the belt, we also offer a 3-ply, kydex reinforced, custom leather gun belt laminated "in the round".

While taking more time to craft, it will provide the user a belt that will perform better and retain its shape longer.
