The ATLAS Belt offers the wearer an ultra low profile design ideal for use under duty belts, war belts and even backpack waist belts.
The STANDARD body is designed to be stiff enough to support daily wear of items like handgun holsters, magazine carriers and knife/tool pouches; while maintaining a certain level of flexibility that is important for overall comfort. Designed to bridge the gap between common pants belts that are either too stiff or too soft, thus offering the end user more selection to dial in their daily carry needs.
The SLIM body option is the same design as the renowned Standard Atlas G-Hook belt but in a softer, slimmer design. The stiff scuba webbing core has been left out and replaced with a thin flexible layer. Ideal for IWB and AIWB carry, or use under a backpack waist belt, climbing harness or duty belt.
Feedback from users who find overly stiff belts uncomfortable has been excellent and the original design grew from custom requests. Women who carry IWB have given especially positive feedback to the SLIM body style.
The secret to both the low profile design and affordable cost of the ATLAS G-Hook belts is in the ITW G-Hook buckle. At just over an inch tall, there is no large buckle to impede a belt worn over top or to stab the wearer in the gut. The buckle is steel, has no moving parts and is very cost effective when compared to popular buckles used today. Unlike other belts with a second tail to fight while donning, the ATLAS sports a clean tail with four “keeper loops” that the buckle slips into when tightening up the belt. There are multiple loops for two reasons: First, multiple loops allow the user to dial in the fit easier and thus creates a shorter tail on the buckle end, keeping more of the belt’s body free and clean for attachment of gear. Second is redundancy; in the event of a failure of one of the loops the user can simply lengthen or shorten the tail to engage another loop and keep the belt in use until replacement or repair can be obtained.
