Mountain Belt Dark Brown


The Mountain Belt is a serious piece of leather. Built from Hermann Oak's Old World Harness leather, this heavy duty leather belt is not for fragile hearts and delicate trousers. Purchase the Russet color here.

  • 13oz (.25") Thick American Harness Leather from Hermann Oak in St. Louis.
  • Traditional Harness just like your grandfather used. Stuffed in drums with heavy tallow for exceptional weather wear, thickness, ease of cutting, and durability in the field.
  • Strap Width Options include 1.5" and 1.75".
  • Colors include Dark Brown and Russet**
  • Buckle Hardware is solid brass with antique brass (matte nickle finish coming soon).
  • The billet end of the belt has 7 holes spaced by 1" on hole center.
  • It is 6.5" from the center hole to the tip of the belt tongue. 
  • Best in Belts 2014 Winner at Badger and Blade
  • See IMPORTANT sizing chart below.

** Due to the nature of drum dyed leather, color may not exactly match the photographed color. But they will always be very close. Expect your leather belt to darken and patina with age and wear. (See below)

Important: Proper sizing is very important. You are responsible for providing a correct measurement. Be sure to follow the measurement directions when ordering. Please see my terms for any questions you may have. If you've measured your current belt as the chart suggests, and you are smaller, I will be happy to build the belt to your specs. Just leave a note on checkout of your correct measurement, and I will update your order. 

Available in a Russet or Dark Brown color that is drummed dyed at Hermann Oak’s tannery in Saint Louis, Missouri. The waxy harness leather tends to resist the intake of the dark brown oil dye, and results in a fantastic antique patina. Accented with a large antiqued solid brass buckle, this belt has an old world class that is timeless. Secured with 2 screw posts, you are able to swap this solid brass buckle out for your favorite buckle with the simple turn of a standard screw driver. 

Please check the FAQ for make and delivery time frame. If you need it by a certain date, please message me and I’ll see what I can make happen.
