LIION DEFENSE is now offering a belt designed for every day use called the GIBBORIM™ Gun Belt. This new warrior’s sash has a rigid, non-metallic core with a 1000D CORDURA® wrapping. The strap core is stiff enough to support the carry of a handgun.

These hand-made girdles are available in three different colors: black, wolf grey, and coyote. They are made in the United States of America.

The ITW GTSR buckle is standard on these transverse bands. An ITW G-Hook is a $5 upgrade, while an extra 15 bones gets you the RAPTOR™ buckle that the company describes as “…the Cadillac, the Ferrari, the Bugatti of EDC gun belts.”

Pricing starts at $74. Waist sizes of 29″ – 46″ are supported – so to speak – with sizes outside of that range being available as a custom order for a sawbuck more.

    Nice looking belt but If someone wanted a ‘hand made girdle’, they’d probably go to a different website than this! What a strange way of describing a gun belt.

  • Andy

    1860 called, it wants it’s lexicon back! Ha! Just giving you a hard time, but I really did have to lookup what a sawbuck was.

  • erwos

    Gibborim is typically translated as “mighty ones”. Funny name for a belt (unless it’s a belt for a strong man at the circus?).

    • Simcha M.

      You forgot to mention in that the translation is from the Hebrew and in modern Hebrew it means “heroes”.

      Hebrew: the language most hated by Obama and his cabinet, especially when spoken by Benjamin Netanyahu.

        Oh poor baby, are you not receiving enough deference?

  • Chandler

    These are literally copies of SOE belts

      That was my first thought as well, they look almost identical in construction, would be interesting to see a side by side comparison. At least the SOE EDC low profile belt with the Hook buckle has multiple positions for adjustment.

    • There are actually a number of prominent differences between the GIBBORIM and SOE belts from the style and construction to the buckles and the CORDURA® wrap. The SOE belt was not used in any way as part of the design in the construction of the GIBBORIM™ belt.

      No-doubt that the SOE belt has proven itself to be a fine belt, but we feel that there are significant differences when you take the time to look at them both.

    Not for nothing, but you could just buy a leather Galco belt and never worry about supporting a handgun.

  • Well I’m SOL. Need a 58″ for my fat ass.
    Currently wearing a Diatech Bullbelt, note to all the “oversized” out there, they make’em BIG there.
