Measuring guide

The belts by default have 4 holes, centers of which have been set apart by 4 cm.
It gives the belts extra durability and allows the belts to be locked extremely tightly when a lot of support is needed.

The 2nd largest hole should be considered as the one for everyday use.
This allows having 1 hole for a looser fit on bulkier gear and 2 holes for a tighter and extremely tight fit when putting the belt under heavy loads as a support harness – the belt can be tightened by 4 or 8 cm. 8 cm tightening can only likely be achieved when the belt is locked higher on the waist.

Measuring the distance between the 2 points on a flat surface with a soft measuring device that can follow any belt curvatures (due to prolonged use etc.) is recommended.
It is also recommended to compare the measurement with the same measuring device around your waist.

Why measuring the belt is better than measuring your waist?

Measuring a belt that you already use takes into account your preferred way of wearing one – high or low, tight or loose. The belt measurement might be slightly different from your waist size due to these preferences.
The provided measurement will be set on your belt as the distance between the locking point in the buckle and the 2nd hole from 4 in total (counting towards the buckle – see the picture above).
