Police Belt cheaper alternative ?

Recommended Posts

Noticed some comment in an old thread where some guy claimed to get a police belt for 10 quid instead of paying the £70~ for a FRV tailor or £105~ for the raptor tactical odin mk3 belt. I thought yea likely story but did a bit of quick digging and found the below. You would need to get a inner velcro belt yourself but it does seem a damn site cheaper. Anyone know how you would attach kit to it without it being able to slide along the belt? It's 50mm which is just under 2 inches.

To the question of stopping your kit sliding along the belt if I’m using molle pouches I use 2inch adapters I’ve made my self that look like this but difference is the ones I make have Velcro hook stitched on the inside to stop them moving about , or if I’m using something with a loop or tunnel to mount it then I simply use three pieces of Velcro hook stitched together so you have a horizontal piece with two vertical pieces at each end to lock the whatever in place .

Very smart the inner velcro will keep it in position and you'd lose that realesate with a molle strap anyway so no less retentive to your inner belt.  Thanks alot for that

 

What are loop or tunnel things not sure what you mean by that.

 Some pouches/holsters/etc have either a length of its self folded down and stitched making a ‘tunnel’ across the back of it or there’s two or more pieces of webbing or lengths of material stitched to the back that you slide the belt through.

There are a lot of shops out there that you can get police bits from. I use quite a few for other aspects of life. 

 

Police-supplies.co.uk is very decent for price.
