We wanted the most functional shooter’s belt on the market, so we ended up designing it. This is a damn rigid, durable, comfortable, and smartly designed belt with a bomb-proof Cobra buckle and laser cut PALS webbing. Your mag pouches and other gear will stay exactly where you want.

  • Laser cut PALS webbing for gear
  • Durable Cobra buckle
  • Width: 45 mm (1.8”)
  • Four adjustable lengths
  • Weight: c. 265 g (9.3 oz), 285 g (10.1 oz), 305 g (10.8 oz), and 325 g (11.5 oz)
  • Made in Germany, using European parts and raw materials

Rugged laser cut PALS webbing

You'll find PALS-surface almost on the whole length of the Shooter’s Belt. Instead of sewing, we used LASER-cut Cordura for three particular reasons. First of all, this design keeps pistol mag pouches and other narrow items more securely upright. Furthermore, it ensured a lighter and flatter belt. Third, it reduces manufacturing time and materials required, which saves money.

Bomb-proof Cobra buckle

This belt comes with an AustriAlpin Cobra buckle, rated to 9 kN. The point of the Cobra buckle is that when you have once adjusted the belt correctly, you don’t have to adjust it anymore. Just click and go.

Without a doubt rigid and stiff enough

Your shooter’s belt should be as stiff as a government bureaucrat. You don’t want it wobbling here and there with heavy gear because then it will chafe. This 45 mm (1.8") wide belt has a sturdy plastic reinforcement inside making it stiff enough. And it isn’t just any shitty plastic, it will take at least -45 degrees Celsius (-49 F). So, these won’t break in the wintertime fun and games either.

Easy to attach to the pants without screwing up the setup

When you have finally managed to set up all the gear on your shooter’s belt, you don’t want to fidget with them. If a need arises to loop the belt in the pants like it is required by certain shooting sports, you will feel like crying. It is impossible to do that with a stiff belt full of gear without detaching everything and starting all over. Even when the belt loop attachment isn’t required, not using it might make the belt slip and slide here and there, which is both unpleasant and moves all your gear to less optimal locations.

The loops-covered Särmä TST Under Belt eliminates this problem. You put it through the belt loops of your pants, leaving the Velcro side on the outside. This shooter’s belt has the corresponding Velcro on the inside. You can have all the gear in their correct places all the time. Then you slap the belts together and rock & roll.

An option for using without an under belt

If you must use the belt without attaching it to an under belt, you should cover the coarse hooks on the inside with something to protect your jacket. The Särmä TST Belt Padding offers protection and friction to better retain the belt.

Sizing

These shooter’s belts come in four sizes, and each of them can be adjusted by 10 cm (c. 4”) The sizes overlap a bit on purpose. The measurement method is like with a regular leather belt from the hole to the buckle, rather than the overall length of the belt.

Note that when you adjust the belt longer, you uncover webbing that has no PALS webbing on it. If you want as much webbing as possible, you should select a belt that fits you at the short end of the adjustment range.

On the other hand, you might prefer to have less material at and around the buckle to have a flat and comfortable front. In that case, shoot for a size that fits you when utilizing the full length of the belt. When doing this, note that an under belt will add some girth, so add estiproximately 7/8" to the length.

If estimating the belt length gives you anxiety, put a measuring tape through your belt loops when wearing pants without a belt. Don’t measure an existing belt, make educated guesses based on the pant size, or use haruspicy.

Manufactured by German MD-textil

Särmä TST shooter’s belts are manufactured by the German MD-textil, which is a family-owned business dedicated to tactical and technical gear. They make gear e.g. for the special dudes of the German army and border guard. They utilize state-of-the-art machines, which are almost as precise as German workers themselves.

To deliver only the best quality and maintain sustainable production, they work in close co-operation with special forces and do not source basic materials from low-wage countries. The fabrics, webbings, and sewing thread are made in Germany. The Velcro is made in Spain, and plastic parts are made in Italy. The Cobra buckles are made in Austria.

This is a great belt. Really solid and robust. Keeps your gear in place even with heavy loading and mygear doesn’t wiggle around even when running. Works great with the two under belt types. What else would you want from a shooters belt? Works as intended with no extra unnecessary bs features - which is what I expect from varusteleka.

Update: I’ve had a chance now to run this at four matches since purchase. I use it with esstac mag pouches and a couple of cheapo off brand pouches. I run the belt heavy with 4 full rifle mags and two pistol mags without any issues. Everything stays very solidly in place.

Mielestäni hieman keskeneräinen tuote. Ensimmäiseksi ärsyttää onewrapin käyttäminen vyön hännän särmäämiseen, tähän hintaan toivoisi jotain vähän tyylikkäämpää ja toimivampaa ratkaisua. Itse ratkaisin tämän ompelemalla muutaman velcro-pätkän tähän tarkoitukseen. Lisäksi, vaikka itse vyö on suht jäykkä(jäykempikin voisi olla), soljen ympärillä oleva jäykistämätön osuus heikentää kokonaisuutta, ja esimerkiksi pistoolikotelo pääsee vedossa liikkumaan helpommin kuin esimerkiksi Esstacin shooters beltin kanssa, puhumattakaan IPSC-kisavöistä. Nämä ominaisuudet olisivat hyväksyttävissä jos hinta olisi kohtuullinen, mutta nyt tästä pyydetään premium-tuotteen hintaa.

Hyviä puoliakin on, leveys on sopiva, työn laatu hyvää ja molle-kujasto toimivaa. Koot ovat aika reiluja, S-kokoisen joutuu säätämään melkein minimi-pituuteen 175cm / 73 kg. sisävyön kanssa.

Täydellisen vyön etsintä jatkuu kuitenkin. Pienillä muutoksilla tästä saisi kyllä todella hyvän, ja hintakin olisi perusteltavissa.

It's a decent shooter's belt and I have no complaints not attributable to my own stupidity after using it for a while.

The defining feature is that the belt solves a problem found on most competitor models out there:
To the joy of many gear autists, modern PALS carriers often feature the possibility to vary pouch height at 25mm/one-inch increments, pouches themselves generally don't. Most belts I've looked at (before seeing the prototype photos) either feature two not-quite-half-inch strips of webbing (or equivalent)at the top and bottom edges of the belt, or one 25mm/one-inch strip along the belt's midline, essentially putting their belt's versatility back into the stone age (aka the early 2000s, 2010s).

The laser-cut fabric on this belt offers both and therefore allows pouches to be attached at modern increments, which was a good reason to wait a whole fucking year between Jari promising a release "soon" and the thing actually being sold. I hear it wasn't his fault but we kept bugging him on insta anyway. As a sidenote, oddly enough, at least one competitor who also uses laser cut fabric sews the top and bottom strips shut, which is like paying a hooker to swallow but then nutting into a rubber anyway.

Even better, it's possible to rotate the PALS pattern by 90 degrees through using 25mm back-to-back velcro tape, of course at both pouch heights, so if you want to be extra-special about how you mount your stuff, go the eff ahead.

As (according to google Translate) the first Finnish reviewer said, the main downside is the loose end of the adjustable section of the belt, which needs to be secured somehow and that job is done with a supplied piece of back-to-back velcro tape. That single piece which is a bit sparse, so perhaps Varusteleka should look into stocking rolls of 25mm back-to-back velcro tape and suggest people purchasing this product also purchase a roll of that, too. After all, it'll be a small surcharge on how much we already drop on what's essentially a Hero-LARP-costume, regardless of whether we increase the lead contamination of a particular piece of land (and our lungs) or pelt each other with plastic balls. Or both.

Sizing wise, as a 30-something 174/80kg male who really should work out a little more, the G2 size is fine on top of a G1 underbelt, the G2 of the latter is definitely too large however.
