Three Belt Buckles Made for the Rugged Outdoorsman

Posted by Phillip Young on 28th Apr 2015

The rugged outdoorsman needs a belt buckle that is tough, reliable and practical. There are many styles that fit the bill, but some embody the rough and tumble lifestyle more than others. If you’re searching for a great accessory to wear while hiking, camping, riding or doing whatever it is you love to do out in the fresh air, consider these three belt buckles and the belts that come with them!

A Western Belt Buckle That’s Always Ready to Ride

Roper belts offer a variety of western themed styles, including powerful belt buckles with classic designs. The shape and pattern varies, but each offers the same strong metal build and single prong functionality. Take the ROPER: Men's Hair-on-Calf brown belt. This accessory includes a belt buckle with fine detailing and a timeless rope edge. It’s easy to put on so you can get up, get dressed and head out with no fuss.

Roper also carries belt buckles that are less flashy but just as dependable. If you want something without the intricate designs, try the ROPER: Men's Floral Hand Tooled Ranger belt. This mens accessory comes with a more basic buckle that’s smooth on the surface but still includes the classic rope edging in a silver finish. It’s also removable so you can change out the belt band.

A Simple Belt Buckle for All Your Leather Belts

A man with simple tastes may prefer the durability of our basic John Deere belt buckle. This style is paired with a handsome oil tanned leather belt. The buckle includes a round shape, smooth texture and famous John Deere name and logo. It’s durable and reliable, but also very versatile because it can be removed.

Switch it out and wear with your favorite belt strap or use it for different occasions. Put it back on the triple stitched leather belt when you’re heading outdoors then remove and add to a dressier style to meet up with friends at the bar or your favorite restaurant. This is one belt buckle that works hard so you can take it anywhere.

A Double Pronged Belt Buckle for Wilderness Excursions

Make sure your belt stays put with a double pronged buckle like the one included with our Mossy Oak camouflage belt. This design is extremely rugged and ideal for outdoor wear. The belt band itself includes a woodland print with dark brown trim. The buckle is a rich, traditional antique brass and includes a roller bar and two separate prongs that fit into the belt’s double holes. The roller allows for easy adjusting that keeps the band moving through the belt until you secure the double pronged buckle.

Choosing a Rugged Belt Buckle for Your Wardrobe

A good outdoor belt buckle should be able to keep up and offer a look that matches your lifestyle. Removable belt buckles are ideal because they give you more options should you need to switch attire after a long day spent outside. Metal belt buckles work best because they are much stronger than plastic. The Belt Shoppe offers a diverse selection of western, camouflage, ranger and jeans belts that offer a look and fit for the rugged lifestyle.
