Ray Mears Leather Belt - Rich Brown


Brand: Ray Mears Bushcraft
Weight: 264 g         47 reviews
Each Ray Mears leather belt is handmade from a single piece of supple, fine quality heavy bridle butt. The belt is cut from the length of the butt, and the leather will become even more supple over time and with use.

The belt comes embossed with the Ray Mears Bushcraft logo, making this product a very special item exclusive to Woodlore. The thickness of the leather makes the Woodlore Belt strong enough to be used as a knife strop or to lash things together whilst the natural beauty of the leather is brought out by the hand burnished edges and traditional crease line.

The heavyweight, solid brass buckle with roller is a type usually found on traditional heavy horse harness. Two leather loops keep the free end of the belt in place; one fixed at the buckle and one free-running.

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

For an insight into Ray's ethos on our leather goods, please view our Leather Goods page.

  • Width: 3.7 cm

  I use it as a bush belt. It's thick, and rigid to hold your gear, yet soft and doesn't bite into your skin.

  As usual, speedy delivery. Good quality leather belt, generous 38 inch waist, should give many years of service.

  Finally a real hard wearing leather belt. I've had far too many thin belts that just warp and disfigure after light use. This seems like it will last forever. I'm very happy.

  Once again a fine and quick service from Woodlore. I received the belt today and it fits perfectly. It's well made and will certainly last a life time (with proper leather care as advised). It will see me out I'm sure. I've purchased many items from Woodlore over the years and every item has been a quality one. Thanks again Woodlore/Ray. All the best guys.

  Fantastic belt, could be used to pull a jeep from a bog type of construction. Beautifully hand crafted and a rarity nowadays, super quality.

  The Woodlore Belt I'm wearing has lasted ten years of daily use so this repeat purchase is a fairly safe bet. It's worth following the instructions and treating the leather before use, it makes a big difference.

  Such good quality and I can imagine that this belt will last generations. This is the best I've had in over 40 years.

  I've been using it for almost a year now and it does the job flawlessly. A bit pricy but I think it's worth it.
