Here I keep a razor blade, About 30” of Kevlar twine, a polymer handcuff key, and a couple $20 bills (I’m no Rockefeller). I can think of a million other things I’d like to keep in here, but it just isn’t possible. I have the contents wrapped with the string in a way so when I open it, I can pull it all out by pulling on the loop .
The Kevlar string I keep with a bowline tied at each end, so it’s ready to use as a friction saw to cut through rope, paracord, zip ties, or duct tape. The polymer handcuff key and razor blade speak for themselves. If you carry one, don’t forget to take it out before you go through airport security! I keep the $40 in case I find myself in a pickle that $40 can get me out of. Forty bucks is better than no bucks.
Overall, it’s a sturdy belt with the ability to give you a little extra piece of mind by carrying an extra key, some cash, and whatever other tools you fancy. I don’t mind paying a little extra for made in the USA products, and with the craftsmanship, I’d say it’s well worth it.
High quality materials.
High quality craftsmanship.
Easy to don/doff.
Pockets difficult to access.
The front of the belt still isn’t low profile.
