Aegis Enhanced Belt (black buckle)- Ares Gear
Aegis Enhanced Belt
The Aegis Enhanced belt (released 2013) is one of our newest designs; customers wanted a belt with the same performance as our Ranger belt, but a simpler "look". Like the Enhanced Ranger, the Aegis Enhanced is 1.5" wide, and is composed of 2 layers of the same proprietary scuba webbing, with an added layer of 1.5" thin colored webbing (8 color choices) on the outside. The Aegis buckle is beadblasted stainless steel (weighs 4oz), and production buckles will use 17-4PH stainless for improved corrosion resistance.
All components are made here in the USA (webbing, thread, and all parts of the buckle), and we sew them together in Columbus, Ohio.
Aegis belts don't require the same overlap as the Ranger belts, so we recommend you purchase based on overall length (S=41", M=43", L=45", XL=47", 2XL=49") instead of on belt size or pants size. Some people have stated a preference for a tail that ends immediately after their belt buckle, while others prefer a few inches of adjustability. Jake wears size 36 pants (38 when carrying IWB) and wears an XL Aegis Enhanced...but he COULD be wearing a M if he wanted to eliminate any tail.
To find your belt size, measure the distance from the hole that you most often use on your current belt to the farthest point on the buckle. That will give you the size of your belt then add however much tail you want on your Aegis Belt.
