Will and the Chisos team have done it again! This time their quality product, a full-width cowhide belt, is something to wear everyday, just like their boots! This belt has the heft and feel of great of a well-made product. I really like the 3/4” spacing in the belt holes.
I picked up my black Chisos belt the day my brushed brown one arrived. The quality on these are on a another level, equalled to their game changing boots. Same amazing leather, perfectly color matched, and the hole spacing provides a perfect fit. They are thick and substantial but aren’t too casual. I will be buying more of these… and more Chisos boots too.
I bought two belts in the last 6 months. Both of them fell apart quickly. I saw this belt from Chisos and read the positive reviews. This belt is very high quality and seems tough enough to last a long long time. Love the color. Very pleased with my purchase.
The nicest belt I own! Perfect match to my Chisos #2’s!
I tried several belts from the big box store, and they ALL ended up being junk after just a few months, usually because the belt buckle would fail. Others would fray or come unstitched causing delamination of the belt.
I then tried a Lifetime belt from a well-known company who advertise QUALITY. Paid a good amount for it, even on sale, and thought finally a lifetime belt, and it even said lifetime belt on the back. Full Grain Leather seemed nice. However, after a few uses, the stitching started coming out. Looking on the internet I found that they changed from American made to China made, and I guess they changed the thread because almost everyone was having the same problem, and the Lifetime belt was actually a one-year warranty.
Then I found the Chisos belt. I ordered two, and brown and a black one. On the back of the belt there are no marking to indicate where it is made, or the leather type, but from what I can tell it is top grain buffed and stained leather on the front, and full grain leather on the back. The stitching appears to be top notch.
The belt is a two-piece belt that has a heavy duty buckle, two brass screw post attaching the buckle to the strap. This would make it more difficult to change buckles, but if you have ever had a snap quit working you can appreciate the attention to detail.
There is a 5 ½” spread between the first hole and the last hole with 8 holes total measuring ¾” apart. This allows you to have a better fit than most belts that have a 1” between holes.
Now this belt is longer than the typical belt of the same size, so when I ordered mine, I could have gone down two inches and been fine. However, if you order one and it is too big, you can undo the buckle and cut the belt and adjust the size. Not that you would want to with a new belt, but say you lose a lot of weight, instead of having a belt that is too big, and useless, you can change, the size down (you just can’t ever make it bigger). No more putting a nice belt up because it is too big.
Overall, the quality is outstanding belt, and I may have found my lifetime belt.

Being new to Austin, but not to Texas, I am thrilled beyond words having found the Chisos Boot Company, right here in Austin!
I am absolutely blown away by my brushed brown #2s, matching belt and minimalist wallet.
The extremely high level of quality in all of the leather goods you provide, the warmth and concern y’all show for your customers, your suppliers, the environment and the Great State of Texas have all made me a customer for life!
I’m so delighted, not only with the quality of the products you offer but also with the quality of the people behind them.
I will refer anyone and everyone I know in the market for the best damn boots, belts and wallets to the Chisos Boot Company!
Thanks to each and every one of you and to the artisans that design and make your wonderful leather goods!
After purchasing my #2’s, I had no reservations about deciding on this belt. This is the most sturdy leather belt I’ve ever owned. I was stuck wearing a tactical gun belt to carry concealed because my leather belts were too flimsy. Tactical belts are not a good look when wearing wranglers, button up and boots ( IMO ). This belt is so well built I can carry concealed no problem, with no compromise, nor do I look like a tactical cowboy anymore lol. This is a no frills solid damn belt. Thank you Will, Kris, and Chisos Team ! 10/10
I bought this belt as a durable belt I could wear working at the farm. Ended up wearing it on jumps during airborne ops and got compliments on it while wearing it to church. It’s a Texas belt for doing Texas things.
I’ve always found it a struggle to find a belt that fit me properly, with one hole on a belt either being too tight or too loose, but the 3/4 spacing makes a world of difference! I can’t stress how comfortable these belts are, Chisos never ceases to amaze!
Love the belt. It fits well and I wear it every day. Great customer service.
