Carryology – First Look :: AustriAlpin COBRA Sport Buckle


Carryology recently published a first look article on AustriAlpin’s new COBRA Sport Buckle. Made of 7075 aluminum and brass, the Sport Buckle is designed as a lower cost option for use with clothing, sports equipment, backpacks, etc., when the higher-cost, load bearing standard COBRA buckle would be overkill.

    These will be big, I bet. Not necessarily in the tactical market, where you have droves of people who will buy nothing but the best model to hold their pants up, but on commercial luggage, backpacks, automobile rigging, outdoor products, etc.

    I have like 6 riggers belts with the original anodised buckles (I’m.such a gear whore) and I’d settle for nothing less than the original.

    That said though these look like a well thought out product for its intended use, especially when compared to the competition.

    The standard Cobra buckle is insanely overbuilt for a belt, but they still sell like crazy. People who want a belt to hold up their pants and bear a little weight of a pistol, holster, reload, phone and whatever else will find this buckle meets that need admirably. My guess is, though, that it’ll bring in more customers at the lower priced products rather than affect the more expensive belts that already use Cobra buckles.
