Thick genuine leather is heavy duty and durable. The classic ranger belt style has a long "tongue" that you use for cinching the belt tighter. This billet allows you to pull the belt tightly without anything bunching or pulling underneath. The silver harness buckle is removable, so you can replace it with your own favorite buckle. Leather detailing and a double keeper makes for a sharp looking belt. When choosing a size, please take your pant size and go up one. For example, if you wear a size 34 in pants, buy a size 36 belt.
