Ares Gear's Aegis Enhanced belt was designed specifically for customers who wanted a stiff, top performing belt, but with a simpler "look" for today's EDC customers. The Aegis Enhanced is 1.5" wide, and is composed of 2 layers of a proprietary scuba webbing plus one layer of facing webbing (3 color choices). This extra layer makes the Enhanced model stiffer than the non-Enhanced model. The Aegis buckle is stainless steel, available either in a beadblasted or black nitride finish. All Ares Gear products are 100% Made in America. Mfg: Ares Gear, Inc.
