An IPSC shooting belt is a belt specially designed to carry the weight of your gun and magazines, securely and without jogging of moving as you run and jump. It is as important as choosing the right holster or pouches.
All modern IPSC style belts are 2-belt systems. An inner thinner belt that is worn through the pant loops, and a thicker, stiffer outer belt that attaches to the inner belt.
When choosing your shooting belt, be sure that you get a size large enough to allow for a generous overlap of the outer belt once close over the inner belt, and with the gear mounted on it.
How to select the correct belt size:
* measure around your waist (the place where the belt would be carried on),
* add 25 cm meant for overlapping,
If you are wavering between two sizes – choose the biggest one. Keep in mind that clothes you are wearing while shooting always add some centimeters to your waist measurements.
If you waist length is 96cm do the following:
96 cm. + 25 cm. = 121 cm
* Outer belt - 1 piece
* Inner belt - 1 piece
* Belt loop - 1 piece
