Each Badger tool belt is USA built and consists of 90-100% American made material. Occasionally we are unable to source domestically but we make every effort to do so. We take this idea seriously and try our best to source our materials as locally as possible. These materials include heavyweight 1000D Cordura nylon fabric with durable water repellent coating, American made foam, various military-grade tactical webbings designed to be both lightweight and abrasion-resistant, plastic and metal military hardware and heavyweight military thread. Our metal COBRA® buckles are the only component in our system that we welcome as foreign-made. But, to soften the blow on that, the US government has made a waiver to the Berry Amendment (military must use and wear only domestically made gear) to allow the use of the Austrian made buckles throughout the US military simply because they are that good. AustriAlpin has contracted with a US company to make their plastic GT COBRA® buckles here in the US. They are featured on all our plastic buckled belts (currently special order only).
We firmly believe Badger offers the most well built and durable nylon tool belts available anywhere.
