Not exactly a belt, but figured I'd post it here anyway.
I just put a bid on this item on Ebay. I finally found one I can afford. Cross your fingers for me!!!

I have pouches that will hold everything I normally carry in my camelback mule, and if used that way it will be pretty heavy due to the water. Without water it would only need to hold a pound or two.

At the very least I will use it with just a few small pouches for ciggs and an altoid tin since none of my skirts has pockets.

Somehow I expect it to fall somewhere in the middle with the mule for water and less frequently used stuff, and a few pouches for stuff I don't like to have to dig around in the mule for all the time.


Using it for cigarettes and ashtray is a good plan, and probably justifies its existence right there. Other light stuff you could stick in there: kleenex travel pack, lip balm, sanitizer, mini mag light.

I had a belt made specifically to hold just my camera and spare batteries/memory cards, because I'm 50/50 on wearing a belt (depends on my mood and what I'm wearing) but I HATE digging for my camera in a knapsack. When I want my camera, I want it right away. :lol:

Ok, the neverending belt project is pretty much done, although if I get ambitious I may test out a few other pouch styles.

From the right - D ring, 32 oz nalgene, and poi or goggle pouch.

From the left - Cigg pouch, altoid tin pouch, and clip. Far right is the poi pouch from previous pic.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.
