Mean Gene Leather – “HotTamale” Ver 2.0 Less-Lethal Coin Purse 

Sunday, October 1st, 2017


I ran into Mean Gene at Fort Bragg yesterday and he showed me his latest creation, the “HotTamale” Ver 2.0 Less-Lethal Coin Purse. People don’t carry Coin Purses anymore, but MGL’s versions are made from high quality leather and offer a personal defensive measure when filled with your spare change.

Mean Gene Leather Introduces “Burrito” Mag Pouch

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Gene Higdon was a saddle maker when founded High Speed Gear back in the 90s and sold it a few years ago. While still at HSGI he created the TACO. Now he owns Mean Gene Leather which is a move back to his roots. So far, he’s concentrated on leather belts but today on his 55th birthday Gene announced the “Burrito”, a new leather magazine pouch.

The retention secret for this open topped pouch is springs. It’s designed to accommodate both single and double stacked mags but will also accept many other similarly sized items like flashlights and multi-tools. The Burrito comes standard for 1.5″ belts but can be special ordered with 1.75″ loops. It’s also interesting to note that it’s patent pending.

Offered in Black, Brown, Chocolate or Natural Leather.

This Looks Promising

A Note To MGL Leather Belt Owners

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Mean Gene Leather sent this note out to belt owners. Be sure to check those Chicago screws.

Those whom have received MGL belts, I have had a few reports of the Chicago screws loosening and backing out. Please check your belts and let me know if you need me to send out any replacements.

I was hesitant to place any lock-tite on the screws being if anyone wanted to switch out buckles, it could be a challenge. If you wish to place lock-tite on the screws, please do so, or use some candle wax or steal your kids crayon while they are not looking and mesh the wax/crayon into the threads of the Chicago screwed retighten. My apologies for any issues that may have occur. Is Live
