Cache: (noun) \ˈkăsh\ 1. hiding place especially for concealing and preserving provisions or implements. 2. a secure place of storage.
It’s a money belt, travel tool, survival kit, or whatever else you make it. The Cache Belt™ features a top-loading velcro enclosure that allows direct access to items, at any point along with the velcro pocket, while wearing the belt. The hook & loop closure reassures that the velcro has no single failure point. From discreet carrying of extra Euros on the streets of Amsterdam to packing a compass and signaling mirror up a volcano in Nicaragua, we've tested this belt all around the world and we're confident you'll agree: This is the ultimate everyday and travel accessory.
Belt fits awesome has plenty of room for just about anything about 1" tall/wide to 1/4" thick and you could maybe go 5" long b4 it might show in the belt. Definitely a travel, camping EDC belt. Comfy and no sharp or pointy spots.
I bought a cache belt about a year ago, and wore it everyday through hard construction, belly crawling/crawlspace use loaded with about 6 different items in it with no problems untill finally I noticed the edges started to where and fray. I contacted ***** about it, and they sent me a new belt, hassle free! Highly recommend!
A simple belt buckle that works well. It does not slip or loosen even when wearing all day. Obviously fits the Cache belt, as well as other belts of similar size. A bonus is that it holds a small signal mirror.
I was so thankful that ***** re-stocked these bronze buckles - make sure to get 'em while you can! The bronze buckle with the coyote tan belt goes nicely with a lot of pants I own, and it's great having an alternative to the black belt with grey buckle that's served me well for so long. If anything, the quality of the coating has improved, and I'm so glad to see all the expanding options!
rigger: (noun) /'riger/ a person who rigs or attends to the rigging of a sailing ship, aircraft, or parachute.
rigor: (noun) /'riger/ a condition that makes life difficult, challenging, or uncomfortable.
Either definition will work to describe the purpose of this belt!
The original design is rumored to have been made and worn by bored parachute riggers, the ones who repair and pack the chutes, for freefall skydivers and military paratroopers. Out of the sewing lofts of drop zones, rigger-style belts have been adopted by general military personnel and first responders, as well as intrepid adventures in need of a belt that can come in handy in extreme environments.
Typical rigger's belts incorporate a high-strength rated buckle. Some even incorporate a V- or D-ring as an attachment point. Our Rigger's Cache Belt™ incorporates the patented all-in-one AustriAlpin D-Ring COBRA® ProStyle 18kN, sewn in with 5 industrial bartacks.
Like our standard Cache Belt™ it features the same patented top-loading hook and loop enclosure that allows direct access to items like our Adventure Kit. Unlike our standard Cache Belt™, this riggers version has been sewn fixed into the female buckle side with burly bartacks. Many folks have called our standard Cache Belt™ a real life Batman Belt, if that's true, this is our James Bond adaptation.
This is the version we take when we go far offgrid, like slot canyoneering in Utah. If you do not understand the value of the Rigger's version, no offense, but it's probably not the belt for ya.
[UPDATE] In fact, not satisfied with the 5, 28-stitch bartacks of our original manufacturer, we had a second manufacturer go back over it with 4 more 42-stitch bartacks! Yeah, we went a bit overkill. This may show as loose threads on the backside, but is just the result of tons of stitches punching through 4 pieces of military-spec webbing. Instead of completely cutting and melting all loose threads, and possibly compromising the bartacks and/or leaving a melted rough mess, we left some of them to be trimmed and melted as the end-wearer sees fit.
[LIABILITY CLAUSE] Not intended for climbing, rappelling, or any other load-bearing secret agent stuff.
Finish of the belt is spot on. High quality. One slight issue is with the length. I’m between 41” and 43” around the waist so I got the large. That leaves me with 11 1/2" of tag end when I cinch it up. I can deal with it but I probably should have gotten the medium. That would have been flattering.
I wear this everyday whether I’m out hiking, teaching and conducting search and rescue, hitting fat raps down steep cliff faces (oh yeah, this things cool enough to rap with) or just chilling and relaxing with a cold beer. Super versatile.
I threw a little kydex in mine to stiffen it, I just like the feel of a sturdy belt. What’s great is if I don’t feel like having a stiff belt, a little rip in the velcro and voila- no more kydex.
Might get a little freaky with it and see some PALS on it to secure some gear on it.
Great job ***** team. Your gear is unmatched
Really happy with my cobra belt fits really good and looks great. The design and construction is top notch and lives up to the hype. I'm looking forward to wearing the belt whilst I travel abroad as it gives me a concealed option for carrying my visa and cash as well as emergency items. The belt is low key and maybe another option would be to have the buckle black as to not stand out ( I may spray mine black) All in all very, very happy with this belt, its got to be one of the best ways to conceal carry numerous items and look low key. Thanks from Australia and keep up the great work *****
This is a serious belt. It's taking meva little to get used to the cobra buckle. I weigh 278 pounds currently. I slung the belt over a tree branch and hung from it. It didn't stretch, tear or make any noises of being stressed. I did a bit. Haha!
I bought the original cache belt too. That will be my EDC belt and this one will be my field and forest belt.
Yes it's a 100% bad *** legit cobra buckle. Even better, its attached to a bad *** legit ***** cache belt. Together it's a dream team capable of helping you save your *****. The sizing is perfect. The construction and materials, as always with *****, is top shelf. Not a stitch out of place. I own both the mirror version buckle with bottle opener and now the cobra. You sacrifice the mirror and opener of course but different belts for different purposes. You wouldn't want just one knife in the wild if you had a choice. The cobra buckle system and Wazoos cachebelt come together perfectly. I have seen a ton of belts with cobra buckle but only one comes with a cachebelt. Nuff said
