The Ray Mears Leather Belt Pouch is another exquisite, hand-stitched addition to the Ray Mears range of quality leather goods.

Ray's exclusive logos can be found embossed on this exceptionally beautiful product: the ‘Snowshoe’ on the front flap and the ‘Ray Mears Bushcraft’ logo discreetly positioned on the back of the pouch. Like all of our hand-stitched leather products, this pouch is finished to an extremely high standard. The design incorporates a belt loop on the reverse which is made specifically to fit snugly on the Woodlore leather belt. The loop will accommodate most leather belts up to 38mm in width as well as canvas belts up to about 44mm in width.

This pouch is adequately sized to store your most vital first aid equipment or any other essential items and is closed with a brass buckle on the front that allows for some adjustment. The rounded shape of the pouch with its flat rear panel against the body makes it comfortable to wear even when sitting. We can guarantee that you won't be disappointed with this product!

All of our leather goods are hand-made in England by a craftswoman with over three decades of experience. All leathers are vegetable tanned with full, natural grain, and are hand-dyed in house to the unique Woodlore colour.

  So glad I finally bought this. I’ve been looking for a “possibles bag” for quite some time but most of the offerings are decidedly smaller, many only fitting an altoids tin in. This is the only leather bag of its size, the nearest equivalent is about 5 cm smaller in width. This allows me to keep a tinder tin, a fire steel, a ferro rod, two vials of magnesium shavings, a capped 2cm diameter copper tube container with spunks in, a little bag with waxed fire starting pellets in and a waxed canvas covered sheet of leather, about 6” by 12” for keeping tinder dry whilst lighting it on the wet ground. Oh, nearly forgot, a little length of fatwood the size of my forefinger and 3 pieces of flint. It’s a bit like the tardis!😁 It might be expensive, but you do pay for quality and this is an heirloom quality pouch, it’s beautifully made. I like the buckle system because it’s very secure and quiet in use, if you need it to be. It sits well on a belt without being floppy, I’ve found it will just go on my 2” (50mm) wide belt, even though it says it will only fit up to a 44mm belt. I haven’t actually used it yet, but when I do, I think I’ll have the belt on the outside of my clothing so I can swivel it round when I want to get into it and have it more out of the way when ai don’t. Altogether, I would definitely say for anyone on the fence about purchasing it to go ahead, you really won’t regret it!

  This pouch is made of superb quality leather, its capacity is deceiving and the buckle is of good quality brass. I certainly know that I will be able to trust it to not lose the things I place into it for safe keeping. I also look forward to using it for many years to come.

  Woodlore leather work is second to none and this pouch is no exception. A real heirloom piece; the right size to hold your essential items, not too big to get in the way. Easy to open and refasten, even with gloves. A real thing of beauty. A request - could Woodlore make a leather D ring dangler suitable to wear on a belt to clip my Hestra Gloves to when I am out and about outdoors please.

Dear Julian. Thank you for your review and thank you for your request. We will certainly give it some thought and hopefully have something suitable for sale on the website soon.

  This is a lovely little belt pouch, the colour and finish is lovely. I have used the Norsol Leather balm on it and it has come up a treat. Now I’m planning on what I am going to keep in it; fire lighter and probably a small pocket knife etc. It fits and goes perfectly with the RM brown belt. Very happy with it.

  An excellent product. Expensive, but of the highest quality. I also have 2 belts of the same type, one of which is running strong (except I've lost the loose retainer loop!) after 18 years. The leather only gets better with time and use. Don't be tempted to buy inferior stuff; if you want a superior leather pouch, go for this. Heirloom quality. K .

  I have just received my Leather Belt Pouch and was amazed how quickly it arrived. Well done Parcel Force! It's just perfect for my requirements as I wanted something to keep a rather expensive piece of electronic equipment in without getting damaged. The construction is very well made and a good quality leather and the deep tan makes this a top product.

  What a beautiful belt pouch. I upgraded from the Ray Mears canvas belt pouch that I have used for years and is still as good as the day that I bought it. This is one of those items that I have had on my wish list for a long time and the final item on my list of leather goods from Woodlore. Like all my purchases from Woodlore this is of exceptional quality, the finish of the leather is superb and it looks just like the photo on the website. More comfortable than the canvas pouch as I used to put more in it. This pouch is ideal for my Hudson Bay fire tin and the rest of my fire kit. Very comfortable to wear even with my Leaf Cutter Rucksack. This pouch is a pleasure to own and use, thank you once again Woodlore for top quality kit that I can depend on.

  This is another great Ray Mears product, perfect for carrying all the little knick knacks one needs to hand on a days hiking, lovely quality finish and easily opened/closed with a neat secure brass buckle.

  Exactly what I was looking for. Stylish and functional. Really well designed and made from robust Sadle grade leather, not the soft gutless leather you mostly find. Easy to undo/do up singlehanded and capacious enough for what I want. Excellent service and reasonably priced. Thank you.

  Another successful purchase. Beautifully made handcrafted leather, an item you just know will last for many years and only improve with age.
