The Battle belt also known as the war belt or shooting belt are great setups to use on the range and for training. There are many shapes and sizes of belts on the market today but I’ll be talking to you about the High Speed Gear Sure-Grip belt and why I use it.

The High Speed Gear Inc (HSGI) Sure-Grip belt has superb comfort. The inner lining of the belt has neoprene padding that gives the belt a cushiony gel-like feel for greater comfort and exceptional gripping power. Compared to other belts held up by friction around the body, the HSGI Sure-Grip doesn’t loosen or fall due to weight on the belt or excessive movement. Once the belt is cinched to your size, you are good to go!
Ease of Use
One of the biggest benefits of belts like the Sure-Grip is the ability to throw it on over any clothing. Because the inner belt can be easily adjustable, and it is solely a friction secured belt you can run the belt over your waistline, over a jacket or outer layer, or with virtually any clothing. This benefit makes it an excellent belt to keep loaded and ready in a vehicle, besides the bed or for any emergency response situation.
The Sure-Grip is outfitted with a semi-rigid inner belt with Cobra buckles. The inner belt can be adjusted and comes in Small-2XL sizes. The locking mechanism and weight rating of the Cobra buckle make it one of the best buckles on the market to date and it's no wonder why almost every battle belt company has switched to using Cobra buckles on their systems.
Price point and final thoughts
The price of HSGI products including the Sure-Grip is very competitive. The Sure-Grip goes for around $90-$100 which compared to other quality belts on the market is a good price! They come in a few different color options (Multicam, Coyote, Black, OD Green, etc) and the molle webbing all around the belt gives the user tons of real estate for pouches. I highly recommend their products and if you want to try them on for yourself see some of the options offered at the Nashville Armory. We carry the original Sure-Grip as well as the Slim-Grip, Micro-Grip belt panel, and various HSGI pouches.
