Select a belt 2” larger than your actual pants size.
If you wear multiple pants sizes base your belt size off of the largest size pants you wear.
Belts can adjust approximately 2" smaller than the labelled size to 3" larger than the labelled size (e.g. a size 38 belt will adjust from approximately 36”-41”).
Since US numbered pants sizes are not well standardized the most accurate way to find your proper belt size will be to take an actual measurement. Below are two methods to take a measurement:
Note - Please keep in mind that your ‘waistband’ measurement to find your proper belt size will be larger than your natural waist measurement (your waist at its narrowest point). Also the rise of your pants will have a significant influence on your waistband measurement. The higher the rise of your pants, the smaller your waistband measurement will be, and the lower the rise of your pants, the larger it will be.
Our belts will adjust approximately 2” smaller and 3” larger than the labelled size (size 30 will adjust 2” smaller and 2” larger), keep this in mind if you are trying to select a belt that will fit with pants that have varying rises.
Method One - Measure around your waistband:
With a tailor’s tape measure (or piece of string), thread the tape measure around your waistband through the belt loops of your pants to obtain your waistband measurement. Make sure to wear all your carry gear while taking the measurement to ensure accuracy. Select the belt size that is closest to your measurement in inches.
Method Two – Measure an existing belt that fits:
If you have a belt that currently fits properly a measurement can easily be taken to find your size. With a traditional leather belt with holes lay the belt flat and measure from the hole you most often use to the end of the belt where the buckle starts. Select the belt size that is closest to your measurement in inches
