very nice belt, on or off the slopes

It says L is all out. Will you guys be re-stocking soon?

Hi there,

Unfortunately we do not have any more ordered to come in at this time, sorry about that!

Unanswered Question

Is the buckle color silver or gun-metal on the black belts?

I see it looks like silver on some photos people posted but it looks darker in the official image.

Unanswered Question

What is the weight of a size Med Original Snow Tool Belt compared to a size Med of the Industrial version? What about differences in waterproofness? Thanks!


Amazing quality, never quits working

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Been using the same belt every day since 2010, its been to 6 countries, and through all kinds of weather and amazing abuse and still hasn't given up. The only thing that i would say is sub par is that the can opener feature is a bit weird because its facing the wrong direction, but other than that, its ideal. I do quite a lot of traveling, and they even let this through airport security. Honestly, can't express how good of a buy it is, probably the last belt you'll ever need for at least 10 years. Last thing about sizing, when I got it back in 2010 sizing ran LARGE by one size, so if you're wearing a medium, you should order a small.


actually used it

I wear this belt for everyday day and nobody has noticed the screw driver bits until something needs a quick tighten. Sure but replacing my tool box but it has come in handy.


Best Belt Ever

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I couldn't live without this belt. It goes everywhere with me.

on the size chart, the large says 34-48...

on the size chart, the large says 34-48 inches? is that a typo, meaning 34-38 in?

Good catch! According to 686's website the Large is indeed for waist size 34-38.


Hold up your flair and your pants

This belt is awesome, the tools integrated into the design provide you a quick access solution to wiggly bindings. If you find that your ride is slipping just unstrap, pull your belt off( keep your pants on buddy! ) and quickly get those suckers tightened up and ready to roll. The bottle opener is especially helpful, and the hard metal feels solid and sturdy, no need to stress about a flimsy gimmick this is the real deal!

Good quality, durable, bottle opener sealed the deal, however it is a little odd and sometimes not the best at getting bottles opened. However fun little tool!



    Service was great! Belt got here in a timely manner. My bf absolutely loves the belt! This one I got for him was a replacement. The one he had prior lasted forever. so if you want a hefty belt, this is a great one!

    What's Not To Love?

      I originally bought this belt in 2001 in black. That belt got confiscated at the airport 3 years later, sad day. I bought another one as soon as I could and I have kept the same buckle for the past 8 years going through about three replacement belts of differing qualities. I wish 686 would sell replacement leather that fits the buckle, because the buckle will never wear out and never goes out of style, cause it is a style all its own. I will probably wear this useful buckle far past the days I hit the mountain.


      Very Cool & Very Useful

        Sorry to say that I don't snowboard, but this belt makes the average guy into MacGyver.

        First of all, the belt is attractive and high quality (i went with the brown but might get the black one, too)
        And the tool buckle is well made and does actually work. Within the first week I had already used the Phillips head 2 times to the amazement of my friends.

        Get it. Just for the novelty alone its worth it...but then it really its a home run.


        weird smell

          belt is great overall but there is a strange odor about it thats just barley noticeable.


          Kick-ass Belt

            This belt is fantastic. It's interesting, useful, comfortable, looks good, and makes me feel like Batman when I wear it. The only downside? There's no place to hold the Batarangs. Buy this belt.


            Scout's motto:

              Be prepared, right? I love this belt for its style but also for fucntion. Gone are the days of desperately looking for a screw driver or bottle opener while on the mountain. I wouldn't recommend this as a fix-all, but it does give a little peace of mind when a buckle or strap comes loose miles away from anything. The leather is very durable and wont disappoint. Get one and be happy.



                My buddy has this belt and i have witnessed its practicality on the slopes. His binding came loose at the top of the mountain, which would have otherwise screwed our day. But he whips off the belt, goes to work, and five minutes later we were a go. I always thought it was mostly the cool factor before that, but this thing really is useful!

                shouldn't it have a #3 phillips so you...

                shouldn't it have a #3 phillips so you dont strip your screws?


                Macgyver owned one.

                  This belt is the best belt I have ever owned. The leather is super strong and even when wet it stays the same size with very little stretch even when wearing the belt on you ass. I have never worn pants on my hips so I have been through my share of belts. But this on is still rocking it strong. The only down side is it smells like leather, I mean like you just walked into a Harley Davidson convention. So bad I had to keep away from everything or it would smell just like the belt. Small price to pay for the best belt in the world!
