Great belt – very heavy duty but not rough – very dressy!
What is a “Ranger Belt” anyways?
The design of the Ranger Belt was adopted from a cinching technique used in horse tack that allows a strap to be tightened without pinching the horse’s hair in the buckle. The Texas Rangers adapted this technique into the design of a men’s ranger belt in the 1840’s, when they began using the new Colt Walker six-shooter, which used holsters that required wider belts. By mimicking the cinching technique from horse tack in the design of the ranger belt, the Rangers could wear a smaller belt and still holster the larger sidearm.
The Ranger belt and buckle sets are now classic western americana. It is a rare photograph of a cowboy that dosn’t show him wearing a ranger belt or a trophy buckle. Few American traditions in dress are so timeless, as Ranger belts and buckles are popular today.
