What does your belt do? Holding up your pants is indeed a noble task, but if you want a little more multitasking in the waistline area, try one of these on for size. The Survival Belt itself has a tensile strength of nearly 1500 PSI with an internal webbing core and a TPU alloy coating that’s waterproof, abrasion resistant and UV protected. It’s a strong belt that you’ll use for many years — to hold up your pants, carry gear, haul firewood or fashion a tourniquet — but the real workhorse is the buckle.
SlideBelts Survival Buckle packs a bottle opener, LED flashlight, a fire starter rod and a titanium nitride-coated, liner-lock folding knife — all neatly housed in a tough, glass-filled nylon body. No one is suggesting your belt replace your entire EDC, but backup is always wise. This survival belt will hold up your pants while making sure you’re ready for what’s next. – $150
