New for 2021

Although our Leather Gun Belts are the new guy on the block in regards to the internet, the same great Hermann Oak® harness leather that has made them so popular over the last 19 years of shows and events has been improved.  We are now offering The Peacemaker, The Falcon, The Howitzer, The Nitro Express, The Ironwood and The Remington in this HDC process.

The problem with most Leather Gun Belts

The #1 problem/complaint by leather gun belt owners.... "too stiff and too thick".  We believe that by compression rolling the "Hot Stuffed" gun leather here in Arizona we have overcome this universal issue. By simply creating a more compacted full grain-full thickness profile, our rigid and trusted Gun Belt Collection has received an upgrade for 2021.

 Leather vs. Synthetics

When it comes to choosing a new Gun Belt there are many differing perspectives on thicknesses, materials, and functionality. We believe that different situations and circumstances dictate the type of gun belt that is best for each gun owner.

Leather Pros

  • The self conforming memory of Saddle leather.
  • A more refined and fashionable appearance.
  • Inconspicuous and/or understated profile.

Leather Cons

  • Can stretch out unless perimeter sewn 1 or 2 times.
  • Does not hold heavy ammo or multi attachments as well.

Synthetic Pros

  • Defined placement for competition shooting.
  • Usually less expensive.

Synthetic Cons

  • Can draw unnecessary attention to a carrier's waistline.
  • Usually mass produced and sewn with inferior threads.
  • Lacks fashion appeal

Scottsdale Belt Company -HDC

Our past designs and time tested gun belts have been trusted by firearm instructors and gun owners for 2 decades. Our new High Density Compression technology is a whole new level. By taking full thickness mature bull sides and compressing them at just under 90 tons of pressure, we are able to offer a slightly thinner, more comfortable gun belt that will still self conform without compromising strength. Compressed to just about a quarter inch thick, we are now offering models with high-density compression leather without any compromises to the strength. Vegetable tanned at the Hermann Oak® Tannery in St. Louis and compressed in our Arizona workshop, giant sides of full grain American harness leather have allowed us to create a more refined conceal carry gun belt.

Most gun belts are too thick, especially in Wide 1.75" and can some can barely get through denim loops on modern pants. Excessively thick belts are the number 1 complaint we hear from IWB and daily carry handgun owners. We feel that double thick leather belts are not necessary if the leather can be compacted properly and is made dense enough.

If you notice a powdery looking dust in the image of our belt, this is just wax rising up from the leather core. This wax prohibits the drying and cracking of this belt for 20 years or more. Dryness and dirt are the enemies of leather and most gun belts start with dry skirting (non-oiled/waxed hides...less expensive). The dry skirting leather allows belt makers' to design the gun belt with floral, basket weave or other fancy impressions. Unfortunately, the deep conditioning and hydration of these belts is a problem. The question becomes, how do you  push or "hot stuff" down to the leather's core once the tooling is done? Ours will not hold a stamping very well however theirs is very difficult to get these stuffed tallow/liquor penetrations through.

See the giant wooden tannery drums in this photo that accomplish this. Centrifugal force and heat are used to deeply penetrate the hides. The drums force the waxes and liquors through and into the core to plump and preserve. As an Arizona leather company, trust our word that the finest skirting or tooling leather will soon to be cracked if not constantly conditioned. That is why we do not use skirting, but instead choose bridle and harness to make our belts. 

Our Goal

Our primary intention was to combine self-conforming,  saddle leather with reliable holster positioning.  Law enforcement officers know that concealed comfort is only second to reliable holster placement. For everyday carry, the right holster is subjective and a self conforming yet durable leather is worth its money. Overbuilt gun belts with hard and uncomfortable leather and rigid inlays are unbreakable but, for the most part, overkill and unnecessary. Furthermore, nylon and synthetics will NEVER have the self conforming abilities of premium leather. Veteran cops from some time ago remember when they could find a solid American made conceal carry holster/gun belt at a solid price.  Unfortunately to get that same premium vegetable tanned American leather, the hides alone are now approx. $285/side.

We are proud to offer the next generation of handgun enthusiasts and undercover law enforcement our American made HDC leather gun belts. Available only at Scottsdale Belt Company.

The Thread

One defined row of Kevlar® thread is lock stitched with our 2012 high powered Durkopp Adler®. What this machine gives up in speed, it makes up for in velocity. Our heavy duty saddle stitcher is German made and engineered to sew properly tensioned inset threads. Competitors seeking higher margins sell 2 ply leather combinations that can lack thread tension or stitch definition. 

Belt Buckles

With nickel free (stainless steel/solid brass) buckles and modern color options like the REMINGTON, the HOWITZER and the IRONWOOD, we offer a modern and refined gun belt style while still being stout. American made solid brass Chicago screws securely connect these heavy duty buckles to our heavy leather without incident. The belt buckles can always be removed and swapped with a hammer and a screwdriver; however, belt buckle changes void our warranty, but are welcome.


There are many differences between our handcrafted gun belts and the mass produced gun belts that you see online and in the hunting and fishing stores. All leather is far from equal and shoe/boot leather is everywhere. Most of these leathers are chrome tanned and two piece.  If they are one piece leather belts, many have holes that are placed over an inch apart and sport utility buckles that make them look like gym gear. 

Our gun belts are one piece, full grain compressed and chain burnished. Three different products and elbow grease are used to achieve our blended edges.


Handcrafted in our Arizona workshop and straight to customer pricing allows us to offer exceptional quality gun belts that are priced right. With the combination of our 2500 lb. rated belt buckles and heavy duty HDC harness leather, your new gun belt should easily take 50 years to wear out or break a hole. If breakage was to occur with one of our stocked solid brass or stainless steel buckles attached, we will replace it. Our stitched belt guarantee is for 20 Years on hole breakage. Over the last 10 years, many gun enthusiasts have learned to rely on our trusted conceal carry leather belts. We are proud to offer this new HDC technology. Whether you use a paddle holster, a slide holster, or an appendix carry, you can expect our gun belts to deliver static reliability with an eye on fashion. 

In Conclusion

We continue to feel that a bit of patience in manufacturing is always worth the extra effort and time. If you choose to wear our heavy duty American leather gun belts, you will see where 15+ years of perfect reviews on our everyday premium leather belts have come from.

The NITRO EXPRESS leather gun belt with Kevlar® is surely part of "What Makes Us Different."
