Today’s apparel script includes a nice black belt, the “Alloy,” as well as the all-red “Ferrari” (pictured below) from Mission Belts, a company located only about a 30 minute drive south of HOG World Headquarters.
Mission Belts is not a regular belt company and their name test a bit of the story. Their company has a mission, to fight global hunger and poverty by micro lending. One dollar of every belt sold goes toward that mission. Perhaps they will microlend to impoverished starving golf bloggers…
Mission Belts employ my favorite kind of belt fitting system, one in which there are no holes in the leather and a ratchet mechanism controls the fit. These systems are great because one can much more finely adjust the belt’s fit. It is very nice to be able to loosen the ratchet a notch or two when sitting, or perhaps when lunch was a little too big.
Sizing with ratchet style bets is great. The belt can be custom cut to a proper length and the ratchets tighten for a perfect, comfortable fit.
Sizes run from 28-56 inches.
There are many styles and colors to choose from with varying buckles to mix and match. Close to 50 different ones as far as I can calculate.
Mission also offers collegiate logo belts in the respective school’s colors. Surely a Utah Utes version would warrant another (uber-glowing) review here on HOG.
Mission Belts are stylish, well made, and best of all can be perfectly fitted to the most comfortable and best size for each individual.
Retail pricing averages between $35-40 per belt with kids belts coming in around $26.
I’m excited to start “testing” a couple of new belts which just arrived from Mission Belt Co. These are sharp looking, and perhaps best of all they are the new ratchet style.
Ratchet belts are great. First, they are custom cut to the wearer’s general size. Then they can be adjusted on the fly, allowing me to loosen it a bit in the office after eating a giant Philly cheesesteak at lunch.
