The Badger Philosophy

When you call, we’ll answer – even if the shop is busy. If you leave a message, we’ll call you back. Need a custom solution? We’ll work with you to bring your idea to life.

We take pride in every piece we create, and we want you to feel that pride too. When you invest in a high-quality tool belt, you deserve exceptional comfort and productivity. That’s our goal – to make your day better, one belt at a time.

As part of the Occidental Leather family, we’re now able to craft belts more efficiently while maintaining our uncompromising standards.

The Badger Story

I’ve been asked several times about where this all started and how I came to be making tool belts. It all started when the opportunity to quit my job and work from home with my partner came about. She was struggling to keep up with demand for tool belts and I hated my job. So, we spent the next several years making Diamondbacks in our spare room and garage.

To cut to it, we split up and I began the long process of putting a start-up together. Many of the same innovations I initially added to Badgers have now become more common in the industry. Cobra buckles are the best I could find when we first started searching for a replacement to the antiquated slide buckle that we used to use. They are now seen more and more on tool belts. And if SuperFabric can make its way into more chisel pouches around the world, that’s a win. We are proud to play a part in that.
