New for 2021, our rigid and trusted Gun Belt Collection has received a major upgrade and is now offering thermally compressed harness leather for a slightly thinner profile without compromise to strength.

Our new High Density Compression technology takes us to a whole new level. By taking full thickness bovine bull sides and compressing them at just under 90 tons of pressure, we are able to offer a slightly thinner and more comfortable self-conforming gun belt without compromising any strength.

If you notice a powdery looking dust in the image of our belt, that is 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.

So what is to become of the "good leather belt and holster market?".... it becomes degraded leather, plastic and synthetic, not to mention "globally sourced".

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.
