First Look: Nextbelt Introduces Three New Gun Belts

posted on May 22, 2021

Nexbelt, known as "The Gun Belt With No Holes," is introducing their new Thin Blue Line, Thin Red Line and U.S.A. Supreme ratchet-style EDC Gun Belts.

The "Thin Blue Line" typically refers to the concept of the police being the line which keeps society from descending into violent chaos. The "blue" in "thin blue line" refers to the blue color of the uniforms of many police departments. The Guardian Thin Blue Line Belt is a tribute to the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day to keep us safe. The U.S.A. Thin Blue Line graphic is etched onto a scratch resistant powder coated black buckle. This PreciseFit ratchet belt fits up to a 50-inch waist and the nylon reinforced strap is 1 1/2 inches wide. 

The “Thin Red Line” flag was developed to show support and solidarity with fire service personnel and to honor injured or fallen firefighters. Firefighters are the last line of defense when a fire rages. The U.S.A. Thin Red Line graphic is etched onto a scratch resistant powder coated black buckle. The PreciseFit ratchet belt fits people with up to a 50-inch waist and the nylon reinforced strap is 1 1/2 inch wide.

This leather beauty has Nexbelt's minimalistic buckle (1 1/2x1 11/16 inches) that doesn't take much space, allowing it to be used with appendix carry or when carrying IWB or OWB on your hip. This PreciseFit ratchet belt fits up to a 50-inch waist and the leather strap is 1 3/8 inches wide. The belt has three set screws for a  reliable hold. 

Nexbelt’s EDC Gun Belts will secure your defensive tools and look good while doing so. Nexbelt has you covered, whether you are dressed to impress, training on the range, competing, or just running errands. All the EDC Gun Belts have a stiffener in the strap to prevent belt sag or rollover when carrying your firearm, and the buckles feature two set screws for added security.

Nexbelt’s “Gun Belt With No Holes” features PreciseFit, a unique ratcheting system that allows the wearer to adjust his or her belt in ¼-inch increments instead of the normal 1-inch adjustment on a traditional belt with a pin/buckle system. This ability to “fine-tune” a belt in ¼-inch increments  provides unprecedented comfort and is extremely useful for people who carry a defensive firearm.
