The ATS War Belt offers a fresh perspective on the padded first line belt. Long gone are the days of an old LC-1 belt with a cobbled together padded backing. The ATS War Belt is a padded cover that is designed to be used with a belt system up to 2" in width. The inside of the War Belt is lined with a strip of 2" wide hard side (male) Velcro to interface with duty belt soft side (female) Velcro to keep the belt from shifting during hard use. It offers full length 1/4" high-density, closed cell foam padding for comfort and is lined with Dri-Lex moisture wicking material on the inside of the belt. There are 4 ITW/Nexus 1" Looplocs on the top edge of the belt for using the optional suspenders.
The outside cover of the War Belt is bar tacked with three stacked rows of PALS webbing for use with any MOLLE compatible pouches. The outer cover is opened along the bottom, allowing access to the duty belt within (belt not included). This allows the user to hang pouches, holsters, and drop-leg hangers that are not MOLLE compatible anywhere along the inner belt. The padded belt is sized to work with our ATS War Belt Liner Belt or Cobra Rigger's Belt (Large with Large, etc.). As with all our products the ATS War Belt is made in the USA and comes with a lifetime guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship.
S (26-30) M (30-34), L (34-38), XL (38-42), Special Order XXL (42-46)
Proper sizing for the War Belt will have each end of the War Belt ending just in front of your hip bones. The overall, end to end length measurements are Small: 30 inches, Med: 34 inches, Large: 38 ½ inches, Extra Large: 43 inches, XXL 47 inches
Three helpful hints for the War Belt: first, a side release buckle inner belt is easier to get on and off. Second, if the belt you're going to use is lined with Velcro, get yourself some shims made of cardboard or magazine covers (the heavy glossy paper works great) and cover the Velcro inside until you get the belt where you want it. Then just pull out the shims, give the belt a smoothing push to seat the Velcro, and viola, perfect belt insert job. Third, before you put the belt in, make sure any hanger you want on it, like a Safariland UBL or other such part, is already on the belt before you Velcro that belt in.

After having time to use this belt, I can honestly say that "I love it" Very well made and rugged. Also this product is made in the USA!

Affordable, High Quality, Durable, Comfortable, Proudly USA made, and I could go on with more pros. I'm 5'11" about 150lbs with medium build I ordered the medium belt fits perfect nice and snug but still allows comfort and freedom of movement, I will be pairing the ATS War Belt with the ATS Adams Belt. 10/10 will be buying another

If you don't want a war belt that is made in America extremely high quality, all killer and no filler then look elsewhere. This belt is tremendously better and lower in profile than that AVS belt you have from OCIE so buy it you won't regret it.
ATS also has hands down the best customer service in the industry far better than that NY company you keep ordering from.

I have tried a number of different battle/war belt setups from different manufacturers and this one is my absolute favorite. It is well constructed and when you use the ATS war belt, inner belt, and harness it is an outstanding setup. The fact that you can access almost all of the inner belt is one of the many outstanding features of this piece of kit. I highly recommend this setup to anyone interested in this type of gear.

I've used and tried a couple different belt setups over the years. The ATS War Belt, is well padded and very comfortable. The padding is spot on...just thick enough to provide comfort, and definitely not at all too thin. Just enough MOLLE attachment space, to attach essential gear/pouches. Best belts I've ever used, and in my opinion, especially for the price, they are the best in the business.
