“El Original” is the first belt in the Tejas Gun Belt line by Magpul.
Crafted from a combination of inch-and-a-half wide top grade bullhide leather and reinforced polymer, it’s strong and water resistant, rigid enough to carry a holster, but still comfortable for everyday use. Proudly made in Texas, it’s not just a great gun belt… it’s a great belt.
U.S.A. Made in Texas
Top grade bullhide leather exterior layer and supportive but flexible reinforced polymer interior
Gun belt rigidity with dress belt comfort offers stretch and sag free performance
Removable chrome plated buckle with branded “tool-free” fasteners
Standard 1-1/2″ wide and 1/4″ thick to fit most belt loops and holsters
Eight holes with 3/4″ spacing for a wide yet precise adjustment range
Multiple lengths available from 32-44 inches (please review Belt Sizing directions in Specs below*)
DO NOT order your waist size or pants size! Lay an existing belt out flat and from where the leather folds at the point where the buckle is attached, measure to the hole that you typically use. Please remember when ordering to take into account any holster or accessory that may be worn. For in-between measurements use the next size up as our belts will not stretch over time.
We size our belts from the fold in the leather to the #5 hole (count the hole from the tip, ~7 inches) as per the diagram below.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE:
While the inner polymer layer of our belt is largely maintenance free, the outer layer will need to be cared for like any other quality leather item.
Do not roll up your belt unnecessarily tight when not in use
When putting your belt on, avoid bending it back over the buckle more than 90 degrees when tightening as this may strain the leather and weaken the stitching
While our belts will not stretch due to the reinforced polymer inner layer, avoid using leather softeners such as Neatsfoot or Mink oil
If necessary, a quality paste-style leather preservative may be used to maintain the leather surface
If the surface is ever scratched down to the natural beige leather the appropriate shade of shoe polish will help restore the color
