Magpul’s New Tejas Gun Belts

So you want a good belt to hold up your britches and your gun? Well, looks like Magpul’s got ya covered.

Yep, the well-known magazine company, famed in gun circles for pulling its business out of Colorado when that state instituted magazine bans, now offers gun belts. Here’s what they’ve got right now.

Tejas Gun Belt “El Original”

This is their first offering; it’s 1.5 inches wide and made of a combination of “top grade bullhide leather and reinforced polymer.” Their goal was to make a good-looking, comfortable belt that can also serve as a gun belt. Looks like they succeeded.

Manufacturer specs:

  • Water resistant
  • Rigid enough for holster use
  • Top grade bullhide leather exterior layer and “supportive but flexible” reinforced polymer
  • interior
  • Gun belt rigidity with dress belt comfort
  • Removable chrome-plated buckle with branded “tool-free” fasteners
  • Standard 1-1/2″ wide and 1/4″ thick to fit most belt loops and holsters
  • Eight holes with 3/4″ spacing for a wide yet precise adjustment range
  • Multiple lengths available from 32-44 inches
  • U.S.A. Made in Texas
  • MSRP $84.95

When it comes to sizing, Magpul has this to say:

DO NOT order your waist size or pants size!  Lay an existing belt out flat and from where the leather folds at the point where the buckle is attached, measure to the hole that you typically use.  Please remember when ordering to take into account any holster or accessory that may be worn.  For in-between measurements use the next size up as our belts will not stretch over time.

We size our belts from the fold in the leather to the #5 hole (count the hole from the tip, ~7 inches) as per the diagram below.

Tejas Gun Belt “El Burro”

The Burro is a no-nonsense belt that looks tough enough to last roughly forever.

It’s made entirely of reinforced polymer, and the hardware won’t rust.

Manufacturer specs:

  • Built of a single flexible layer of waterproof, textured, reinforced polymer
  • Dress belt comfort but supportive enough to carry a light pistol
  • Corrosion resistant aluminum hardware
  • Standard 1-1/2″ wide to fit most belt loops and holsters
  • Eight holes with 3/4″ spacing for a wide yet precise adjustment range
  • Multiple lengths available from 32-44 inches
  • U.S.A. Made in Texas
  • MSRP $59.95

Tejas Belt Hardware Kit

Finally, we have a hardware kit for folks who just can’t spend enough money on bling.

It’s a brushed-brass-colored buckle with matching tool-free logo screws, so you can change hardware color on a Tejas belt or simply add this hardware to another belt that takes 1.5″ buckles and two removable screws.

How’s that for a Texas solution for keepin’ your pants on?
