Carbon Tactics Cipher Belt

The prolific kickstarter kings of belts, Carbon Tactics, is at it again. They have created and launched a number of successful belts and buckle technologies over the years and their latest is the Cipher.

The Cipher features a buckle that uses the geometry of the latching surfaces and magnets to basically latch itself. This has been a hallmark of a handful of Carbon Tactics belts and it makes donning and removing the belt a snap. The Cipher goes a step further by adding a dial that locks or unlocks the belt for micro-adjustment with a quick spin.

The buckle is machined, in-house, from aluminum and given a number of finishes based on user preference. The belt itself is also available with a number of options including single or double layers of scuba webbing as well as a hybrid biothane option.

Carbon Tactics has launched this belt on Kickstarter. They are just a few days into the campaign and have already fully funded which is typically for them given their track record of delivering these crowd-funded projects.

Carbon Tactics Launches Ti Slice 2.0 on Kickstarter

Carbon Tactics has launched the Ti Slice 2.0, a gentleman’s EDC box-cutter, on Kickstarter. As is typical for them, it is already fully funded. They have been very successful in launching their products on the crowdfunding platform.

I own one of the original Ti Slices and it is an excellent. I use mine as a “public knife” (learn more about the public knife concept here). It is compact, lightweight, easy to carry, and very classy in appearance. The new Ti Slice 2.0 doesn’t reinvent the wheel or change anything that works. The only major difference is the availability of an aluminum version which SIGNIFICANTLY reduces the cost of the Ti Slice.

As usual, Carbon Tactics is offering some great perks for those who fund the project including some slick lanyard beads and a fire bead – a bead than can be scraped to create sparks for fire starting. The project has already been fully funded but the perks are still available.

Carbon Tactics EPOCH

Carbon Tactics is at it again. They just launched their 11th Kickstarter campaign for a belt a completely new buckle design… a design with a quick release mechanism that should be very familiar to you. The crowd funding campaign launched yesterday and it is has already more than doubled its funding goal.

The new EPOCH belt features another unique machined aluminum buckle design from Carbon Tactics. It uses a trigger to release. The design makes the belt very easy to release, allow for some flex between the two parts of the buckle, and keeps the male side of the buckle very compact so that it can pass through belt loops.

Like other belts from Carbon Tactics, the EPOCH is available with a number of options. It is available with three different colored triggers and various webbing colors. It is available with a single layer of webbing, a double layer or webbing, or a black biothane/webbing hybrid. I own several of Carbon Tactic’s double layer webbing belts and have found them to be great for bearing the weight of a handgun while not being too stiff.

It should also be noted that Carbon Tactics has improved their adjustment feature. They state that their new locked adjustment only needs to be set once and it locks the length all day without slipping.

Carbon Tactics Ti Slice

Carbon Tactics is a crowdfunding veteran at this point. They have already successfully funded 9 projects including a number of belts. Their latest project, their tenth, is a slick EDC utility knife called the Ti Slice.

The Ti Slice is a compact utility knife that is made from premium materials and with a smart, minimalist design. It has just three parts including the disposable utility blade. The body of the Ti Slice is machined from a single billet of titanium and the blade holder is machined from bronze. The blade holder simply slides inside the Ti housing and locks into place with either the blade exposed or completely contained. There isn’t a single screw or bearing in the design.

The titanium housing and Carbon Tactics’ in house production capabilities leads to variety of available machining and finishing options. The Ti Slice is available anodized in variety of colors and with a number of machined patterns. If they reach their $20K stretch goal, they will also offer multi-color anodizing.

The Ti Slice is barely longer and taller than the utility blade itself so pocket carry should be easy. It has a lanyard hole that can be used to attach it to a split ring for key chain carry or to further customize the Ti Slice with a lanyard.

Crowdfund This: Carbon Tactics Ti Hook Belt

The Pied Piper of Belts, Carbon Tactics, just launched another Kickstarter campaign to fund their latest belt, the Ti Hook. They surpassed their modest funding goal by a long shot within the first 24 hours of the campaign.

The Ti Hook is one of their simplest buckle designs yet. It has no moving parts and requires no holes or ratchets to adjust. The Ti Hook is like a triglide with a hook on it that has been machined from titanium. It also has a gently curved shape so it is more comfortable and lays flat on the wearer. When properly adjusted, it has no exposed tail (extra webbing) and keeps its adjustment so all you have to do is hook/unhook it.

As with previous Carbon Tactics belt offerings, this one is available with a single or double layer of webbing. If you plan on using it for concealed carry, I recommend the double layer. I own several belts from Carbon Tactics and find them to support the weight of a holstered handgun very well. I especially like them for AIWB carry where a belt that supports weight but remains somewhat flexible is preferred.
