Ray Mears Leather Belt - Rich Brown


Weight: 264 g         60 reviews
Each Ray Mears leather belt is handmade from a single piece of supple, fine quality British bridle butt.

The vegetable tanned leather is hand-dyed to Woodlore’s Rich Brown colour and shows all the beauty of its full natural grain which is further brought out by the dark brown hand burnished, bevelled edges and traditional crease lines. Three rows of hand-stitching using a braided polyester thread secure the heavyweight, solid brass buckle with roller and two leather loops keep the free end of the belt in place; one fixed at the buckle and one free-running.

With 12”/ 30cms of adjustment these belts were originally designed to be worn over outer clothing in cold climates to trap warm air but can also be used with your outdoor trousers and jeans. If you are intending to wear your belt over outer clothing or want the option to, please order one size larger.

Cut from the length of the butt the thick leather is strong enough to lash things together or be used as a knife strop and will become even more supple over time and with use.

Embossed with the Ray Mears Bushcraft logo, this very special item is exclusive to Woodlore and hand-made in-house by a craftswoman with over two decades of experience.

  Fantastic belt. This is my second Ray Mears belt. This one was a treat as I am successfully losing weight and I bought this as a reward. The older belt is still going strong. Lovely piece of quality kit.

  This belt is a fine piece of craftsmanship in leather; a work of art. This belt will last a lifetime. Like all the leather work I have purchased from Woodlore, it is of the highest quality. There are cheaper versions out there, do not waste your money buy the best and have no regrets, that is why I buy all my kit from Woodlore. Thank you for supplying top quality and great service.

  The quality of this belt is superb, but in addition, my heavy outdoor work trousers, complete with knife pouch and other necessities are held very securely now. Something I had not thought of. There is a saying, which is very true with something like this belt 'The quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten'. My two sons smelled proper real leather and then came a myriad of the usual questioning. The belt will no doubt be passed to one of them eventually. Usual great service from Woodlore as I have always experienced. Exchanging for a larger size was no problem. Thank you.

  Brilliant heirloom quality. I have always appreciated things that are made to last with a sense of craftsmanship and care and this is certainly the case here.

  Although I was initially sceptical about the cost, I need not have worried. The belt is designed to last and made beautifully. The leather is thick, supple and I hope it will give me many years of helping my trousers to stay up. Absolutely delighted.

  Years ago I gave my son a Diesel belt which had embossed on it 'one belt one life'. My son is happy and healthy but the belt fell to pieces after 10 years hard work. As a good father I wanted to replace his old belt with a new one and after considerable research I selected Ray's belt. Form the website it appeared utilitarian but when it arrived it's really very classy and would gild Armani Jeans. I don't know what part of the beast the leather came from but it's assuringly thick and the tanning process has left it with the aroma of the interior of a new Bentley's. Hopefully like the Bentley this belts good for a couple of hundred thousand miles.
