Klein Tools natural leather belt - a great deal!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased this natural leather belt and it's a great deal at ~ $20. I just have to pass it along:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00093D6C2/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=tt-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399369&creativeASIN=B00093D6C2

300


It's almost as good as a Tanner Goods belt and better than the Swedish Army dead stock belt at a fraction of the cost!

It comes with a buckle like this: http://www.tannergoods.com/products/solid-brass-center-bar which sticks out a bit. I ordered one of these to replace it with and it fits the belt perfectly (and doesn't stick out): http://www.tannergoods.com/products/stainless-steel-roller-buckle-1

This Klein Tools belt has snaps just like the Tanner Goods belts so you can interchange buckles!

Also note, you may need to take this belt to a leather person to have an addtional hole put in since the hole spacing is pretty wide. This is very easy for them to do and will only take them a minute or two.

Since this belt is natural leather, it will darken and age over the years as you wear it and become uniquely yours.

All in all, a great bargin in my opinion. I love this belt, especially for the price paid!

It comes in 3 different sizes. The medium size I would say can fit from 30 waist to 36. Some experimentation may be needed however I'm a 31 and the medium is just fine, especially after adding a hole in between two of the stock holes (for finer fit adjust).

Interesting find. Thanks.

That is so funny, my friend works for Klein tools and I just got back from NYC and saw some of their bags and gloves on display in the Dunderdon store. Never thought that company would make it to the SF scene but I guess they have. Talk about some authentic workwear stuff.

Looks like a perfect jean belt if you like the work wear look.

They have 3 different sizes, M, L and XL:

I think they run large though since my waist is 31 and I bought the M size and it's slightly long. There is just a tad bit too much extra flap as I wear it, but I sorta like that look anyway.

I fully anticipate it looking a bit like the 3rd picture here after like 10 years: http://stockroom.inventorymagazine.com/product/swedish-army-belt-br-vintage-deadstock

^^^Great looking belt.

I remember the girl who used to show up at the 7th Ave flea market in NYC. She had a lot of vintage work belts in the late 90's. But then Ralph Lauren started buying all of them for his stores so she became a picker. They are tough to find anymore so finding a source of good quality, inexpensive quality work belts is a great find! Thanks again.

How thick is the belt? I have a Corter belt and it's a bit too thick, I'd like something thinner in the meantime and this looks pretty good if it's not too thick.

I just measured-looks like 3/8" thick to me.

I'm guessing you're measuring 3/16".
