The concept is simple: a quick-release belt with all the features our customers have been asking for, an over-engineered construction needed to last a lifetime, and no compromises.
How it WorksThread the male end of the buckle through your belt loops and around your waist. Adjust for fit, and click in. The extra webbing naturally tucks under for a streamlined comfortable fit, while the articulated buckle lays flat against your waist. The fit is SECURE, because utility is just as important as comfort.
Need to expediently drop your drawers? (We don't need to know why.) Just pull the latch, and you're good to go. Done with wearing a belt altogether? Grab the belt firmly, and for dramatic effect, rip it off as fast as you can! It's very satisfying.
The buckle stays adjusted to you, so there's no need to re-adjust when you put it back on later. And the EPOCH is built to last ages, so you can play with it as much as you like, and you don't have to feel bad about it ;)
Being CNC machined from aerospace aluminum, these buckles are stronger than anything you would normally need in a belt, and the webbing strength is in the thousands of pounds. To test that hypothesis, we harnessed the strongest force known to man, two huskies that know they're going to the dog park!
The main body of the EPOCH buckle is black anodized aircraft-grade aluminum, and you can customize the latch color. Choose from Black, Silver, and Dark Earth.
Robust Nylon Straps
For typical every day use, or for carrying a modest amount of gear on your belt, the single-layer strap provides the perfect amount of support.
For those days when you're carrying a lot of gear on your belt, do yourself a favor and grab a double-layer strap. Constructed by triple-stitching two layers of our nylon webbing together, these are REALLY RIGID. If you need to carry serious weight, get the double.
BioThane Hybrid Strap
BioThane provides a classic black leather look with superior strength, durability and ease of cleaning. With the BioThane Hybrid strap, we've combined BioThane with our robust nylon webbing (triple stitched together) to get that classic leather look, but with the performance and rigidity of a custom double-layer belt! Combined with our patent pending buckle, this option is unmatched in versatility.
Doing it Right: IN AMERICA!!!
EPOCH is manufactured in Tucson, AZ by the creator's company, Sargent Research, LLC. This isn't the cheapest way to make a belt, but it gives us complete freedom and control.
CNC machined, assembled, and sewn under the same roof: Some people think you can't manufacture apparel in the USA anymore. We enjoy proving those people wrong :)

Yuki and Hoshi don't need a belt. They don't wear pants.
