The ATS Legion Cobra Belt uses the excellent AustriAlpin Cobra buckle for both ease of use and incredible strength. The Cobra buckle is rated to 11kN, over 2470 pounds of force. That's strong. In order to make use of that strength, we built the belt from 1.72" Type 13 Mil Spec parachute-grade webbing stitching it together with 69 pound nylon thread.
The belt is reinforced with a 4 inch long "W" stitch and has a forged parachute hardware-grade, 316 Stainless Steel triangle Link for personal retention lanyard tie ins. To increase the strength even more, we added 5 lengthwise stitches, which also enhances the stiffness somewhat. The end of the belt has been rounded and sealed so the running end won't snag.
We offer the Legion Cobra Belt in Coyote Brown with a coyote brown buckle, or in Ranger Green and black with black buckles. They're made in the USA and covered by the ATS Gear lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.
Sizing lengths are measured from the center of the female side of the buckle, inside the belt to the middle of the male side of the buckle for a center to center measurement.
