Ray Mears Leather Belt - Rich Brown


Weight: 264 g         51 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 (hence the extra length) but can also be used with your outdoor trousers and jeans. 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.

  This is my third purchased of Ray Mears Leather Belt. This time came with batch no #018. But for this time the length is 42 inches compare for the first belt is 44 inches length. The quality is as superb as previous belt. Thanks to the Woodlore team for such a high quality item. Never disappointed.

  Beautiful handcraft, made from high quality leather material. Just love the smell. Mine came with batch no.117 (F-117 Nighthawk). Built to last. This is the best belt I ever owned. Just love it.

  Incredibly fast service as always and the belt is great, the leather is supple yet looks very durable. The rounded edges are a nice touch and it is very comfortable to wear even under a backpack.

  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.
