Horse hide is a denser material and thus it is more abrasion and moisture resistant. Because the leather is denser, this is the stiffest gun belt we make. The internal stiffener would rarely be necessary on a belt that is this stiff already. Horse hide also lends itself to a greater degree of sheen when polished. Many professionals appreciate the look, quality and durability of horse hide.
Our horse hide belts are made in the same exacting manner as our other dual layer gun belts; that is, an outer layer of submersion dyed horse hide is mated to an un-dyed layer of 7oz. bull hide (see picture), and stitched together with heavy-duty nylon. The belt is then given an incredibly fine level of edge beveling and polishing, making the dual layer belt look like one piece of leather. The final waxing and hand buffing with lambs wool makes this a belt you will be proud to wear for many years to come!
Horse hide belts are available in five colors: SADDLE TAN, UNDYED NATURAL, BROWN, CORDOVAN, and BLACK.
