Ray Mears Leather Belt - Rich Brown


Weight: 264 g         66 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.

  Phenomenal belt, thick leather and a strong buckle. Well crafted and exactly as described. I confidently predict I will never need to buy another belt, except perhaps as a present! Bang tidy.

  This is the second belt I’ve ordered from Woodlore. My first belt is still going strong some 15 years after I bought it. It’s worn every day. It goes well with jeans, outdoors type trousers, a tweed suit and even my cargo shorts. The second belt is a gift for my son. The quality is as good as ever and I’m sure that the belt will serve him well for years to come.

  Exceptionally well made and I can imagine this belt out lasting me! As with all of the products I’ve bought from the Ray Mears store, this belt would seem to have been made with care.

  My husband is extremely pleased with his Ray Mears Leather belt. It is beautifully made and of very high quality. The smell of the leather is also just amazing.

  Excellent service as usual from Woodlore. The belt is beautifully made using quality materials which is reflected in the price, it is however worth it and It holds my trousers up a treat as well as looking good.

  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.
