Acrylic Template - Ranger Belt
This is a four-piece acrylic template set for use in making a ranger-style belt. It includes patterns for the two billets and both ends of the belt.
The modern Ranger Belt is a layer belt design. It has billets stitched on top of the main belt body. The stitched-on billets can be removed and replaced when they wear out, making it a tough and durable belt.
This style came from the cinching technique used for horse tack. Cowboys in the 1840's adopted the same style for their gun belts and holsters. Today's ranger belt evolved from that and is still popular amongst working cowboys and ranchers as well as business men all over.
