Mean Gene Leather Barbarian Belt

The Barbarian Belt from Mean Gene Leather is the product of a forbidden love affair between a trusty old leather belt and a slick new nylon, Cobra-buckled wonder belt.

The belt is constructed from 2 layers of unsplit “Top Grain” leather that has been sewn together with 277 Bonded nylon thread. 1″ nylon webbing runs between the layers to prevent the leather from stretching. That same 1″ nylon webbing is also used to mount a Cobra Buckle that closes the belt. The result is a belt that benefits from modern materials but looks more traditional.

The Barbarian will be available in Black and Chocolate Brown. It can be ordered in widths of 1.5″ or 1.75″. Check out Mean Gene Leather’s Facebook Page for more details. These belts will be available soon at War Sport Ind. and G-Code. They are handmade to order so expect a lead time before delivery.

You will definitely want to keep an eye on Mean Gene Leather. The Gene in Mean Gene is none other than Gene Higdon, founder of HSGI. So, you could say he knows a thing or two about making gear.
