Lighter, Lower Profile, and more Forgiving on the body. A single layer of 2″ scuba webbing, two layers of 2″ flat webbing and a full 2″ wide HOOK or LOOP lining running the entire length of the belt body. “Loop” is the soft fuzzy material, and “Hook” is the stiff scratchy one, also called Velcro. Less stiff than the double layer scuba webbing brethren while still maintaining great stability for mounted kit. The V3 must still overlap when closing but the keeper loop on the V1 model has been dropped and a small section of opposing material allows the overlapping ends to stick together. The 1″ tail is attached nearly 12″ back from the end of the belt body easily giving nearly 10″ of adjustability.
Molle gives the ability to lock molle/pals pouches into place and fixing their height. There is a ½” strip running along the top and bottom edges, tacked in 1.5” spacing, and a 1” gap along the center. Additional 1” webbing is attached vertically along the center of the belt as well. The short and sweet of this is the ability to attach pouches both vertically and horizontally on the belt, or weave plastic restraints along the body tucked securely behind your pouches. Endless possibilities.
Tek-Loks will mount to this design and holster slide mounts like the UBL from Safariland will slide onto the belt body.
Use a Liner Belt in your pants covered in the opposing material and the V3 will stick to the inner belt for a rock solid setup. Options here include the Atlas Liner Belts, Classic Liner Belts, and even a BioThane Liner Belt…..or use a liner belt you might already own….options!
The V3 will still perform and function fine without the use of an inner liner belt. The liner belt option will help secure the outer belt into position and not allow it to rotate or shift up or down. Another option is to add a set of Belt Keepers and then don the battle belt over whatever pants belt you might be wearing and use the keepers to secure the outer belt into place. Ordering the outer battle belt with Loop lining is recommended if no inner liner belt is going to be used since the stiffer Hook side can abrade clothing the belt is worn over top of.

Remember to take into account anything that may be worn under the Micro Battle Belt and take your measurements accordingly! The belt needs to overlap about 1.5 inches at least to fit properly at it’s largest and can cinch down around 10″ if lots of wiggle room is needed…..winter layers, Taco Tuesdays, etc.
