Ti Hook - The EDC Belt you never knew you NEEDED

Ti Hook main pic

Ti Hook is our 9th edition to the Carbon Tactics line, and it's the culmination of our search for the perfect hassle-free load-bearing tactical belt.

In our humble opinion, what makes for the perfect belt?

  • Quick-Release: Hook or unhook in less than a second, without affecting the size adjustment.
  • Infinitely Adjustable: No holes, no ratchets, and no plastic parts to break at the worst possible moment. Just a simple but secure friction lock mechanism.
  • Curved Lay-Flat Buckle: 
    Gently curved to conform to your waist. No bulge + no tail = max comfort
  • Threads through standard belt loops: 
    Change pants without having to remove the buckle or re-adjust the strap.
  • Field-Swappable Buckles/Straps: Mix and match for the day at hand.
  • Wearable Anywhere: 
    Sleek, comfortable, and looks awesome - in an understated kind of way.
  • Tactical Nylon Webbing: 
    Woven in the USA, it's simply the best, most supportive webbing we could find.
  • USA Made: Machining, bending, finishing, sewing, and shipping - all done under one roof by a small group of seasoned perfectionists.
  • Customer Service: Wait, what? Unheard of! We stand behind our products. This is our 9th rodeo on Kickstarter, and we want there to be a 10th. We just treat people the way we'd want to be treated.

 

How it Works

Unlike most belts, the strap and buckle are completely modular, so you can separate and remix them at any time. Just pick out the strap and buckle combo you want for the day. Then thread the strap in and out, like so.

Threading Ti Hook

Thread the looped end of the nylon strap through your belt loops and around your waist. 

threading belt

Adjust for fit, and hook in. The extra webbing naturally tucks under for a streamlined comfortable fit, while the gently curved 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 unhook, and you're good to go. Done with wearing a belt altogether? After unhooking, grab the belt firmly, and for dramatic effect, rip it off as fast as you can! The buckle stays adjusted to you, so there's no need to re-adjust when you need put it back on.

CNC machining is expensive, especially when you're dealing with titanium. Doing it in America and holding ourselves to the highest standard of quality isn't cheap either, but we want to make the Ti Hook available to everyone. The only way to bring the cost down is to manufacture parts in large batches, and we hope your support will enable us to keep producing dependable products.

THANK YOU!

 

 

“Michael - you created an awesome belt here. Holds up my beer belly securely in place and pants with with full EDC load are no problem at all. The product perfectly fits an awesome Kickstarter campaign here. Congratulations to you and your partners! Awesome belt!!!!”

“Love my belt. Support is top notch. Thanks for everything” “Hey, my belts arrived in Germany. I really like them. Will try the biothane in near future for my gun. The standard work perfectly with knives. Well done. The aluminum and titanium buckles look and feel great.”

“Second belt arrived. Thanks very much for the super fast customer service!!!!”

“Another awesome product from the Carbon Tactics team. Super happy with the belts, and all the details you put into them. These will be part of my everyday wear.”

“I have to say I love the belt that came. Strong and light. My strongest belts have been thick full grain types. This feels as strong. But 1/3 the weight”

“Reward received. Brilliant design, works flawlessly. Great job.”

“I chose the aluminum base model with no upgrades. I'm giving it 4.5 stars, deducting half a star for width. Yeah, it's just a bit too wide. It's a lot of work to get it through the loops on some of my pants. Other than that, it's great. I really like the aesthetics. The hook is a great idea, and it functions well. The instructions and other printed material that came with the belt were well written and nicely printed. I like that it is made in the USA. I rarely tuck in my shirts, but I always wear a belt. The problem I had was that traditional-style buckles pinched the hair on my abdomen, like three or four times a day. It seriously hurt. I was looking for something that would fix this, and the Carbon Tactics Ti Hook belt has been the perfect solution. I feel SO much better! Thank you, Carbon Tactics, for my new found everyday comfort!”

“This is literally the best belt I've ever had; I love it. Strong, light, easy to get one and off. If I had to say anything about it, it's a *little* stiff and hard to get through the loop side of the webbing through some belt holes (always works, just takes a second to line up, harder than a "normal" belt). Still, overall I'm in love with it. It's a great belt.”

“Great belt, love it!”

"The simplicity is great, but even better is the quality. Had mine for about 2 weeks now and it took about 3 days to get it adjusted just the way I like it. I feel like my weight/waistline/roundness fluctuates so I like the ability to slightly loosen/tighten my belt depending on the day. So far only found one pair of pants with bel tloops too small to put my Ti Hook Belt through. Happy with my purchase so far.”

“Stronger and more durable than my military issue belt many years ago. Wife hates the design, but I keep going back to it cause it's just so tough and NO budging. If it moves, it is you and not the belt.”

“I'm quite happy with the belt and buckle. It works with jeans, khakis, pretty much anything.”

“Doesn't stretch like my leather belts, which is nice. I got the aluminum buckle and it seems to hold up well against the buttons on pants: there was some discoloration but it looks like that was scraped off the button and not the buckle, and was wiped off when I went to look at it again.”

“Ok. Now I love this product even more. Just amazing service from the Carbon Tactics team. My order was initially messed up and they made it right when MD couldn't. The belt is just as advertised. I got the single strap and it is super sturdy. I can't imagine how tough the double strap must be. The aluminum hook is great and I'm waiting for the titanium one in the mail. I have put the one I have through the paces and it is tough enough on its own. I loved this product so much, I pledged to their Kickstarter campaign for their Epoch belt. I won't be buying tactical belts from anyone else.”

Belt Sizing Notes

In order to make sure you get the exact size you need, I've created a sizing chart to reference.

"Waist Size" is the distance around your waist, as measured through the belt loops of your pants. Note that your "waist size" is usually slightly larger than your pants size, partly because the belt has to wrap around your pants in addition to your waist, and partly because most pants are trying to make you feel a bit skinnier than you may actually be! All belts will be made longer than your waist size, to provide room for adjustment.

For double layer belts, the sizing is most critical. MEASURE YOUR WAIST WITH A TAPE MEASURE, THROUGH THE BELT LOOPS if you are unsure, and reference the WAIST SIZE column of the chart below.

If the sizing chart does not go small or large enough for you, just leave me a note, and we'll happily make a custom size for you. You can also send me a message if you have any questions.
