Ares Gear Announces Aegis Belts

Ares Gear has announced the Aegis Enhanced, the first offering in the Aegis family of belts.


With a 4oz stainless steel buckle, and the same proprietary scuba webbing that you’ve all grown to know and love, the Aegis Enhanced is easier to thread (only one tail!), lower-profile both visually and physically, and has only one moving part in the buckle. The buckle is a very beefy version of the roll pin buckle used on military dress belts and unlike anything else out there.


Now, here’s the catch; the Aegis belts on their website are a VERY limited run (the last of the machined buckles). Production buckles will be MIM (Metal Injection Molded), so the ones available for purchase now are the same type used by weartesters.

Once these are gone, Ares doesn’t anticipate having more Aegis belts for sale until 2014 (unless they make that MIM mold REALLY fast), so get one early.

    Having run one of these belts for the past few months, I have nothing but good to say about it. The lower profile actually makes appendix carry even easier.

    Same here, I have had one on daily since SHOT 2013 and couldn’t find any way to complain.

  3. Sean L says:

    Agree with all of the above. IMO, this is the belt the Ranger should have been.

  4. Jim says:

    I have a belt of exactly this design. Its Italian and 50 years old minimum.

    Another innovative product from Jake @ AresGear. Looks awesome! Can’t wait to get mine.

    Was trying to buy one today and the computer refreshed and it said “product not found”. Must mean they are gone. Bummer

    Spoke with Jake yesterday…he said the new MIM process is far different from the days of the past and that the new buckle will be every bit as strong and without imperfections. I had questions and he promptly answered me and helped me correct some antiquated thinking on Mold Injected Metal process. Can’t wait to buy one when they are re-released.
