Whats the Difference Between The Survival Belt and The Survival Belt 2.0?

The original Survival Belt was created by SlideBelts and funded through Kickstarter in 2014. The idea was simple, combine SlideBelts' classic style and simplicity with the rugged, reliable versatility of outdoor essentials. This belt was released to the public on September 1st, 2016 and was an instant success within the SlideBelts community. As SlideBelts continued to grow, so did the sales for the original Survival Belt.


Now, SlideBelts would not be where they are today without their dedication to continued improvements. With this mindset, the SlideBelts team noticed a few things that could be improved on this adventure-ready belt. For starters, they found the fiber glass filled buckles to feel cheap and flimsy. They also found areas for improvement with the knife holder and the flashlight itself.


SlideBelts now offers the Survival Belt 2.0, which has new and improved features. They decided to go with a more solid, zinc face plate for the buckle. They decided to improve the knife holder to also include a blade lock. This helps to ensure that the knife cannot be opened without first moving the buckle release lever. Even the flashlight has been upgraded to a more dependable model, while still maintaining the sleek design.


The Survival Belt 2.0 is a one-of-a-kind belt made for adventure enthusiasts. It is available today on their website and usually ships within 4-5 business days. Want to learn more? Then take a look for yourself by clicking the link HERE!
