FirstSpear Tactical Dress Belt

Friday, May 31st, 2013

The patent pending Tactical Dress Belt was designed by a Law Enforcement and Personal Security Professional and is manufactured exclusively by FirstSpear.


It’s important to understand that while it’s called a Belt it’s a two piece design that consists of a sleeve that goes over your regular belt along with a low profile inner belt. The inner belt is threaded through the loops on your trousers and the two components Velcro together.

TDB - Inner

The TDB is designed to accept your standard trouser belt which you thread through the sleeve. It might be a nice leather dress belt or an expensive leather gun belt, or perhaps FirstSpear’s Line One Belt made from Biothane. Regardless, you slide your trouser belt inside the TDB and it turns it into a full tactical load bearing belt.


Due to the design it won’t betray you when your jacket opens exposing the front of your belt. But, your sidearm and other equipment is right where you need it.


Additionally, the wide, padded TDB will help support your load during a long day whether just a pistol and magazine pouch or something more substantial.

Available in Black only, one size fits most.

For those unfamiliar, Scorpion bears a distinct similarity to MultiCam because Crye Precision developed them both. Scorpion was created as part of the Future Force Warrior program under contract to Natick while MultiCam is the fruit of Crye’s independent refinement of the pattern once FFW (later OFW) was abandoned.
