Finding the right tool to keep pants secure around your hips has been a recurring struggle. When I was growing up mom would bring me shopping each Spring for a few yearly essentials, one of which was a new belt. The budget for a new belt was typically $20, on average this meant a genuine leather belt from a department store that would not hold up for 365 days.
Since then my buying philosophy has shifted towards buying products that last forever. Why spend the $20 every year when one can buy a product to last a lifetime?
Enter the Cinch belt. A low-profile design that uses instant tensioning and hassle-free locking to hold up more than just pants.
We understand the everyday carry lifestyle - bringing your cell phone, Trayvax leather wallet and link lanyard everywhere. That is why we made the Cinch belt from heavy-duty MIL-SPEC nylon webbing. The high tension strength is built to hold up to one ton. That is 2,000 pounds!
The Cinch Belt is designed to tighten quickly and not loosen. This minimalist heavy duty belt is constructed to last a lifetime, making it a worthwhile one time purchase.
Combined with an aerospace-grade tempered aluminum buckle bent to contour with the shape of the body, this belt moves with you, keeping a snug fit against your waist.
The Cinch Lite Belt is also available, which is the same design but a 1 inch webbing creating a lightweight profile opposed to the 1.5 inches of the Cinch.
Both the Cinch and Cinch Lite are available in Small(30-34), Medium(34-38), Large(38-42), X-Large(42-46).
Although their profile is simple the process of making the Cinch belt is anything from easy. We start by making the Cinch Belt Buckles in our CNC Machine, cutting each contour edge to make the perfect belt buckle.
We then use a process called deburring, using specialized tools to enhance the appearance and feel of the belt buckles. Each Nylon Webbing is cut to desired length. Then a machine is used to singe both ends to guarantee neither will fray. You may notice the corner is removed from the belt head, this is to make it easier to feed the belt through the buckle.

Deburring is a process that involves cleaning up the edges of metal for an enhanced aesthetic appeal. Here we are working on some belt buckles fresh out of the tumbler. #trayvax #gear #madeinusa #americanmade #everydaycarry #handmade #rfidwallet #tactical #americanmanufacturing #edc #heirloomquality #builttolast
Trayvax offers replacement parts for the Cinch Belt, both the webbing and belt buckle are available for individual purchase. Providing the opportunity to swap out color designs for any circumstance, or adjust sizes overtime. I own multiple buckles to interchange based on the outing.
We purposely designed this belt to be compatible with most gun holsters, our Trek knife and other tactical gear. Many first responders, police officers especially, have raved about this belt. The belt’s best quality is its ability to hold up an immense amount of weight without loosening.

Are you tired of keys digging into your thighs while sitting down?
We designed the G10 CNC-Machined top plate to endure rugged conditions while still appearing sleek in your front pocket. It will no longer look like you are carrying around a golf ball made out of paperclips. I personally have ruined a favorite pair of pants from the constant friction from carrying keys in my right pocket. It was not until I introduced myself to the Keydex that I felt comfortable sitting down without keys pinching into my side.
