Belt FAQ

How are Black Diamond Belt Straps Measured?

Belt Strap Sizing

All Black Diamond belts straps are made with 5 holes, spaced 1"; apart. Each strap is measured from the leather end closest to the buckle, to the center hole (the third of five holes). strap size is based upon this measurement only, and does not include the length of the buckle. For odd sizes, round to the next larger size, and use the hole closest to center.

I have a belt that I currently wear, but I'm unsure of the size; can I measure it in order to get my correct belt size?

See our Belt Selection Guide for details on how to properly size your belt.

I have a particular belt color in mind, but don't see it available; can you find me a match?

Yes. Our leather suppliers offer hundreds of colors and styles. Please provide us with a color sample and we will do our best to match it. Send an email to us at [email protected] for more information.
