Helikon Forester Bushcraft Belt
The Helikon Forester Bushcraft Belt is an excellent alternative to a leather product and is a super useful way to carry your easy to access tools,
It is one belt to gather them all, the Forester Belt is designed for comfortably carrying bushcraft items in the woods. It features a special mounting system on the belt loops that keeps everything in check. It complements the Helikon-Tex offer of carrying systems designed for bushcraft as it also allows the attachment of super useful pouches.
The Forester Bushcraft Belt has one thing in common with the tactical belts: it can be worn on the outer layer of clothes, and it’ll easily substitute typical outdoor bags or small backpacks. The Forester Bushcraft Belt nicely works with the SERE Pouch, Water Canteen Pouch, Compass/Survival Pouch, or a Survival Water Filter Bag. It will also work with just about any other pouch with a belt loop making it really versatile.
Together it will make a comfortable setting for bushcraft enthusiasts. A belt with a turbulent history The origin of the Forester Bushcraft Belt dates back to the 1950s and the military conflict in Malaya. At that time, the SAS soldiers used nylon straps with clamps as tactical belts, which were obtained from straps securing loads dropped by parachutes. Over time, most British special units (SAS, SBS), marines, and paratroopers began to use the same solutions. The belt with a roll pin buckle was much better than the other options. It had a simple adjustment and adapted to the user's body. More complicated was the Vietnam War STABO evacuation harness and its predecessor, the McGuire harness. It consisted of suspenders with a belt sewn from nylon parachute straps with clamping buckles similar to the British ones. Equipment elements were attached to the belt: ammunition pouches, canteens with water, grenades, etc.
