Gun Belt Sizing Guide
What's Your Belt Size Number?
How To Size Your Gun Belt
Before purchasing your Bigfoot Gun Belt, you’ll want to determine what belt size to order. There are several methods and factors involved in sizing your gun belt that are covered in the points below.
The number you provide to us will be the distance between the start of the Bigfoot Gun Belt leather to the middle hole provided with a standard six inch tail. If you prefer a shorter or longer tail, add or subtract from your number accordingly. Let’s get started!
Method 1 (the most accurate method):
Grab a belt you have now and measure it from the beginning of the leather inside the buckle to the hole you most often use. This number is what you’ll need to provide to us in your order. Here’s a graphic that’ll help you out if needed:
*Note: If you plan to wear an IWB holster with your Bigfoot Gun Belt, you’ll need to factor this into the number you provide to us. To accommodate your IWB holster into the belt size, wear your IWB holster with your belt. Take note of what hole you’ve used. Using the same method, measure from the end of your belt’s leather to the hole that you’ve used to fasten your belt. This is the number that you’ll want to provide to us.
If you don’t have a belt, you’ll need to use a cloth tape measure to get your number. If you don’t have a cloth tape measure, use a string and a regular tape measure instead. Thread the cloth tape measure (or string) through your belt loops like you would an actual belt. Note the measurement once you’ve pulled the measuring tape (or string) together. This is your number.
Don’t forget to add an inch to your number for every IWB product you plan to wear with your Bigfoot Gun Belt!
Method 3 (The rough number):
We don’t recommend this method, but it is an option if you want to get a rough number in a hurry. Our belt size is roughly four inches more than your pant size (give or take an inch). So if you’re a size 34 pants, you’ll want to add four and order a size 38 belt.
The problem with this is that many pant manufacturers measure and fit their products differently, so it all depends on the brand.
