Alongside chest rigs and utility vests, belts are one of the hottest accessories to come from the tactical wear trend. And while 1017 ALYX 9SM‘s signature rollercoaster buckle may be the most recognizable of the category, a host of brands, including A-COLD-WALL*, Heron Preston, and Unravel Project have all released equally eye-catching iterations.
Built with webbing fabric — a strong, woven strip used for everything from seatbelts to military apparel — these belts are more often than not identifiable by an industrial-style fastening system. With the technical wear demand as strong as ever in 2019, below we’ve selected some choice tactical belts currently available online, with price-points starting from just $35.
At the higher end, highlights include the latest rollercoaster-buckled belt by ALYX, an out-of-character offering from Bottega Veneta, featuring the luxury fashion house’s signature Intrecciato motif, and a heavily branded option from Heron Preston.
Meanwhile, those shopping on a shoestring can’t go wrong with the less flex-worthy but equally functional belts from the likes of Arcade, Uniform Experiment, and Aries (now available for half of its original retail price).
