Building a Better Belt

Founded on the spirit of innovation, SlideBelts has been making patented ratchet belts for over a decade. Join our investor team of over 1,000 customers-turned-owners.


Our story began in the country of Moldova where I was gifted a ratchet belt in 2004. Impressed with the comfort and efficacy of the new mechanism, I ended up wearing it far more than I thought I would, even after I got back home to the U.S. It didn’t take long to see the huge market potential this product could have with some improvements. So after spending a couple years improving both the design and style of that original ratchet belt, SlideBelts was officially born in 2007.


Fast-forward to now (past some trials, more than a few victories, and several iterations of the original belt design): we’ve sold over $33 million worth of belts, achieved consistent year-over-year growth, grown to an experienced team of 40, and we’ve raised $3.1M to date from over 1,000 customers-turned-owners.


By bringing thoughtfully-designed utility and modernity to classic accessories, SlideBelts exists to help you gear up and get out; to carry less and adventure more.


This fundraising campaign is a labor of love from all of us at SlideBelts. Whether you’ve been a SlideBelts fan since the beginning, or you’re new to the brand, we want you along for the ride! I invite you to join our team and own a piece of the next big thing in belts.

THE BUZZ ABOUT SLIDEBELTS

“This is not just a belt; allow me to
introduce you into the world of SlideBelts,
the one-of-a-kind
ratchet belt system
that
gives the classic belt a well-needed,
well-deserved upgrade.

- Jessica Huang, Huffington Post

OUR GROWTH

THE PROOF IS IN THE NUMBERS

SlideBelts has demonstrated sustained growth since our founding in 2007, as evidenced by our handful of “Fastest Growing Companies” awards, including three consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 list. Continuing that strong trend, last year was our first year we grossed over $10M for a total of $12M sales for 2018.

HOW WE GOT HERE

“If you know whence you came, there are absolutely
no limitations to where you can go.”

- JAMES BALDWIN

RETAIL LOCATIONS

While we’re currently represented nationwide in over 250 brick-and-mortar stores in 37 states and D.C., we’re actively focused this year on expanding our physical brand reach in Canada, Australia, and the U.K. With 20 brand representatives across the country, we are looking to continue to expand our wholesale efforts in the coming year.

OUR UNIQUE STRATEGY

HOW WE STAND OUT

When it comes to innovation, nothing is off the table — from product design to company structure.


While the vast majority of brands outsource services, and in some cases, even entire departments, we do everything in-house at our Sacramento headquarters. With teams like creative, marketing, web development, and operations all working side by side on a daily basis, we feel that our integrated, end-to-end approach truly sets us apart. This proprietary strategy allows us to deliver a supremely personalized service, which provides us with a 360-degree understanding of a consumer’s buying journey across all of our channels.

DIGITAL BRAND
DEVELOPMENT

Our proprietary brand-building strategy adeptly utilizes dynamic consumer data to build a comprehensive digital-first marketing strategy, encompassing product development, messaging, and trend forecasting.

ADVERTISING

Our omni-channel advertising approach allows us to construct a customer-focused journey from first touchpoint to conversion, resulting in sustained customer loyalty, and trend forecasting.

SUPPLY CHAIN

The Supply Chain team utilizes digital systems to optimize performance and accuracy, working externally with our international network of partners and cross-functionally with internal teams.

FULFILLMENT

As the foundational operations arm of the company, our in-house Operations team manages and executes the order fulfillment, quality control, and shipping logistics of millions of orders each year from our headquarters.

DIGITAL BRAND DEVELOPMENT

A brand doesn’t become a true brand overnight. Our team has spent years refining a brand-building strategy by adeptly utilizing dynamic consumer data to build a comprehensive digital-first marketing strategy, encompassing product development, messaging, and trend forecasting. This data-driven approach provides us the added benefit of increased agility, allowing us to quickly adapt to forecasted changes in trends, consumer behavior, path to purchase, etc.

ADVERTISING

Our omni-channel advertising approach, which spans multiple platforms, is the foundation of our marketing and brand development efforts. Our data-focused strategy allows us to construct a customer-focused journey from first touchpoint to conversion, resulting in sustained customer loyalty.

SUPPLY CHAIN

Our dynamic Supply Chain team utilizes SAP software as an all-encompassing end-to-end solution for tracking and maintaining product from order to delivery. Working cross-channel, both externally with our international network of partners and internally with critical teams such as finance and operations, our Supply Chain operations utilize digital systems to optimize performance and accuracy.

FULFILLMENT

As the foundational operations arm of the company, our in-house team manages and executes the order fulfillment, quality control, and shipping logistics of millions of orders each year from our headquarters. Our in-house fulfillment team is critical to maintaining our stellar customer retention rate, allowing us to cater product to guest specifications and resulting in superior quality control.

CONTINUAL INNOVATION

With our roots in innovation as the golden thread running through the company, it’s at the heart of everything we do.


Because innovation never stops, we’re always looking for new ways to improve our products and designs based on customer feedback. We’re constantly refining our products, which sets us apart from competitors that still use the same inefficient design that we used in the early years of the company before introducing our patented dual-lever ratchet in 2012.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Just like any company with innovation at its core, we smartly protect all our intellectual property (IP). We have 8 issued patents and 6 registered trademarks — and that doesn’t even include the submissions still being reviewed.

If a company is not protected, then they have no foundation to stand on and others can undercut with cheaper knock-offs. You can see a full list of our issued IP here on our website.

WHY FUNDRAISING

TURNING FANS INTO OWNERS

After bootstrapping SlideBelts for 10 years, we took our first shot at investing in 2017 with a hugely successful equity crowdfunding campaign, raising more than $1M from over 1,000 investors just like you. You might be wondering why we’ve started another investment round, given our consistent year-over-year sales growth and prior investment success. The answer is simple: we’re ambitious. As a company that sells physical products, our ability to scale is always limited to how much product we can manufacture at any given time. Aside from inventory, we’ve outlined below how additional investment will be beneficial to our continued growth.

Research & Development

We especially would like to dedicate additional funds toward our R&D efforts, which include implementing initiatives to reduce our manufacturing waste of raw materials — like zinc & leather for our belts — which also decreases our production costs long-term. Also we have many new products that we want to development, like our GPS Belt. Early prototypes of the GPS Belt already exist, but given its complexity, we would need more than our operating cash to bring this groundbreaking product to market.

FACILITIES UPGRADE

We’re proud of the unique company structure we’ve built by conducting all business functions in-house, instead of outsourcing. We would like to improve our team’s productivity and shipping efficiency by increasing the size of our current facilities, which would be an expensive one-time cost. Ideally, our goal is to own the building in which we operate. We’ve secured an option to purchase the building for $1.7M — an excellent deal, given that it’s under-market per square foot when compared to the surrounding area. This purchase would guarantee us a long-term home and provide valuable collateral.

INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION

Last, but definitely not least, is the large untapped potential we see in the international market. In order to capitalize on that, we’ll set aside a portion of our investment dollars to increase our marketing budget, hire additional team members, and ship inventory to overseas warehouses to enable quick delivery to international customers.

WHY WE WANT YOU

Investing in privately-owned companies like ours is no longer limited to the few but to everyone. Our customers and fans are the reason for our success, so we wanted to give them the first opportunity to own a piece of our brand that they helped build.

AWARD-WINNING TEAM

TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK

Happy, satisfied employees are the foundation of our success and we make it a company-wide goal to ensure we practice what we preach: we’ve achieved three consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies, landed at #9 on Fortune Magazine’s list of Best Small Workplaces, came in at #10 on Fortune Magazine’s list of Best Retail Workplaces, and made back-to-back appearances on Outside Magazine’s list of Best Places to Work, just to name a few.

*However, past performance does not guarantee future performance.

THE SURVIVAL BELT

With a passion for quality and itch for innovation, SlideBelts has been making leather ratchet belts for almost a decade. Now, with the launch of the Survival Belt we have crafted our core product’s concept for the ultimate outdoorsman.

Brought to life by a successfully funded Kickstarter project, our much-anticipated Survival Belt launched September 2016. It’s primary purpose: if you’re out in the wilderness and lost or damaged your gear — so you only have what you are wearing — then you have tools to survive.

The strap is proudly made in the USA and crafted to withstand the harshest elements. The strap is composed of an internal webbing core coated in a durable TPU alloy protective shield. Additionally, the straps are designed to remain rigid without twisting — ideal for those who carry firearms.

SURVIVAL BELT 2.0

I don’t wear any other belt. This includes my very expensive concealed carry belts. I’ve replaced them with the survival belt. The only issue I’ve ever had was with the flashlight/firestarter. I emailed SlideBelts and a new one showed up in a couple days. Now my wife wants some!

– JOHN L.

GREAT GIFT FOR THE SPORTSMAN

I have bought two of these belts as gifts for my nephews’ birthday. One is an avid hunter and fisherman, the other a survivalist/medic type. They both have used the belt and love it. Apparently it is designed to use a tourniquet, actually starts a fire when wet, and lives up to all it claims to do! So thanks – I’m a very cool auntie because of this belt!

BELTS

The Belt That Started It All

In 2004, Brig received a generous gift from one of his students while teaching abroad in Moldova: a ratchet belt. Instead of using worn-out holes and an unreliable prong, this leather belt used something different: a tab on the buckle that ratcheted into teeth-like ridges sewn to the back of the leather strap.

Fascinated with the utility of the belt, Brig thought it could become a huge hit with some stylistic changes. He collaborated to improve and refine the buckle for the fashion world. As it turned out, the ratcheting buckle was already public domain, and a SlideBelts patent would not be possible until 9 years later when he improved and redesigned the buckle into a dual-ratchet lever.

BELT OF THE YEAR AWARD

I don’t want to be overly dramatic, but if there was a belt of the year award, this one would win. Traditional belts never seem to fit correctly — they’re always a half size too small or too big. Not with this belt — it can easily be pulled to whatever size you want. In a world of big problems you’d think that a better-fitting belt wouldn’t stack up as an issue, but damn this belt is good.

– BEN M.

LOVED THE ONE I GOT

I stumbled across these a few weeks ago. I now have 7 leather straps and 8 SlideBelts buckles with 2 more on the way. They are sturdy and well made. Very easy to put together, adjust, and wear. The 1/4” adjustment really does make a difference in comfort and appearance (no stretched out belt holes with buckle marks)! Did I mention I love these things?

– DAVE N.

BEST BELT

Best belt I have ever bought. It was guaranteed to fit from the moment I clicked the “buy” button. I threw out 7 other belts that were not only old, but didn’t fit correctly. I will definitely be buying more belts in the very near future. Thank you SlideBelts!

– TIM H.

GREAT PRODUCT!

I bought a black leather belt for my husband as a Christmas gift. He loved the belt so much that now I’m buying a dark brown one. The leather is nice and the buckles are the bomb! No holes are made so you never have to worry about size – you ate too much? Slide the belt a little bigger. It’s the best slide belt on the market! I highly recommend this product!

Great watch! Very comfortable around the wrist. Strap notches keep the watch fitting snug on the wrist. Face of watch is large enough I’m not straining to see the time. Very stylish, yet subdued.

Offering more than just precise location tracking outside the cellular network, it’s actually a Satellite Emergency Notification Device, or SEND, that can push your location to emergency services almost anywhere in the world. Depending on where you are, the appropriate response team will be dispatched so you can get lifesaving help when every minute counts.

GLOBAL COVERAGE

  • Reduced coverage available within a 20 minute period.

Since the belt is on your body, it’s not easily forgotten or lost. It will also have other features such a sending a short message, and calling for assistance in a non-life-threatening situations as well. Again this project is in development, so though the image below is the current design, it may not be the final look or features of the finished product.
