Hayden, ID -( To craft a tough and rugged leather gun belt, our seamsters and seamstresses sew each Bigfoot Gun Belt using a military grade thread known as Tex 270.

To evaluate its toughness, Concealed Nation’s James England took it upon himself to “torture test” our steel reinforced leather gun belts. This included taking a soldering iron to it.

“Going after the thread, first, it took a while to melt a hole all the way through the treading and into the leather,” England said. “The thread held up surprisingly long. And after one link was destroyed, it didn’t immediately begin to unravel like it would with lesser quality stitching.”

Lead Bigfoot Gun Belts Engineer Igor Shirobokov selected this “extra heavy duty” thread for several reasons.

“This polyester thread is more resistant to UV exposure, heat, and chemicals,” Shirobokov said. “It also has an excellent resistance to aging and abrasion.”

Becky Brassea, a seamstress of 25 years, attests to the quality of materials and craftsmanship behind each Bigfoot Gun Belt.

“The thread is perfect for what we’re doing,” Brassea said. “In terms of handiwork, it’s very important to us that the seams are straight and that the threading holds up over time.”

I wear my Big Foot belt every day and I love it. I forget that my sidearm is at the 4:00 position and frequently check just to make sure I still have it. I always do by the way. I like to carry my piece in an Alien holster, set as low as it will go so only the grip is visible even if my shirt is tucked-in. (you can tuck the alien) This is a great combo for everyday carry. If you are like me you have keys, spare mags, zippo, phone and a belt knife. The Big Foot… Read more »


I bought the belt shown about 6 months ago. I thought I would switch between my old single strap belt and this one off and on, man was I wrong. At first I thought this would be stiff and uncomfortable, NOT. I thought, because of the spring steel it would be overly stiff, again wrong. Now that I’ve been wearing this belt with my concealed hand gun everyday, I wouldn’t wear another belt. It’s comfortable, holds the pistol in place, and looks great. I highly recommend anyone carrying get one, you won’t be disappointed. Simply said “It’s outstanding”. Even my… Read more »

Bought the belt and ordered it in the wrong size. I contacted the company and they were extremely professional and cooperative. This is the highest quality belt I have ever owned and with the quality of material and construction it should last be a very very long time. Worth every cent.
