The Gadsden Dynamics Enhanced War Belt is truly innovative and one of a kind! Designed in collaboration with Justin Vititoe from the History channel's "Alone" TV show, we combined our War Belt design with the elastic mag retention concept we provide with the U.P. Chest Rig to make the ultimate lightweight battle belt with integrated mag pouches!
- A RIGHT-HANDED belt means mag pouches are positioned on your LEFT side.
- A LEFT-HANDED belt means mag pouches are positioned on your RIGHT side.
- If you select to have suspender attachments added, we will sew in 4x 1" plastic rectangle loops that can be used to attach 1" suspenders to. We do not sell suspenders currently, so you will have to source those yourself.
Below are the end-to-end dimensions of the body of the belt if it is laid flat:
There are two holster attachment methods we would recommend for our belts:
If you are looking for a high quality holster for use with our belts, look no further than ANRDesign LLC Kydex Holsters. They have holsters for just about any firearm and firearm w/WML you can imagine, and they offer BOTH Safariland QLS and GCode RTI attachments.

I ordered the Enhanced War Belt and received it very quickly. I have to say I am really impressed with the quality of the work. There are no loose stitches and no slop. I think I should have really gone with the Cobra buckle, but the ITS buckle is sturdy and serviceable. All in all a well executed idea and design. As a side note Bladetech Molle Loks work well for mounting a kydex holster. Hopefully you cans recommend some molle compatible holsters/holster manufacturers in the future.
Pros: -Lightweight -Adjustable fit -Integrated mag pouches provide good retention -Non-slip interior -Built shipped quickly -Good quality materials and stitching Cons: -Lacks rigidity -Requires adapter to run belt mounted holsters or mid/low-ride mounts Overall: Great to find a quality belt produced by a small business. For anything more demanding than flat range work the cobra buckle is worth the upgrade. A more rigid construction would be preferable for a heavier belt load. The belt was too wide to fit a Safariland mid-ride mount without modifying the mount or buying the adapter. So far the belt has performed well moving and shooting on the range, but I will be looking for something with more structure for duty use.
Belt works really well. Has not slipped or moved any since I have used it. Would love to have one in A-TACS FG. Other than that, I can't complain. Made myself a holster using a Bladetech TMMS QD mount with some molle locks so I can switch back and forth between my Glock and FN, works great.
This war belt is unlike any other I have tried. I ordered the small EWB in multicam and it fits me fine. I was surprised when I found that it could easily adjust for my other family members waist sizes. In addition, the built in magazine pouches provide enough retention even with fully loaded 30 round magazines. However, the retention wasn't so much that I had difficulty taking out the magazines. The only semi negative thing I can say about this design is that I personally am not running it with a harness setup so the little added harness buckles get in the way but very minimally. I have ordered a few things from Gadsden Dynamics now and Andy is always very quick in responding to questions. I will be ordering more in the future and am glad to be supporting a company thinking differently than the majority of companies. Clark Coneby

This belt is extremely well made - durable without being unduly heavy or bulky. The non-slip inner surface is great. I can grab this and instantly go with holster, 2 spare mags, tourniquet and IFAK. Thanks, Steve
Great design, well put together. The pistol mag and rifle mag pouches keep everything close to the body and are located in the right place. It has become my go to rig that I wear anytime I go to the range or anytime I am training.
Great service and communication. Product fits, feels and works fantastic.
The belt is great! For someone who doesn’t need to wear a load belt daily this is the perfect solution. I appreciate the simplicity of the built in belt and clasp as well as the pouches. It’s a fantastic piece of grab and go gear. The customer service is also fantastic. My order was delayed due to a material shortage but I was updated on the status quite often. I would definitely buy from Gadsden Dynamics again.
