Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

We’ve never found a belt that fit exactly right. With holes every inch, they are always a bit too loose or a bit too tight. Mission Belt solved this problem, with a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″. That means a comfortable fit even when your weight fluctuates. There are plenty of styles to choose from but you can also go a la carte and mix and match buckles and straps. We’d be fans of Mission Belt even if that was all that was great about the product and the company, but the fact that a dollar from every Mission Belt sale goes to the “Mission” to fight global hunger and poverty is a huge plus in our book. By partnering with Kiva, Mission Belt has made over 67,000 microloans in more than 70 countries, totaling over $1.6 million in loans. Not a bad little bonus for buying a good-looking belt that will fit perfectly for years to come. And yeah… it’s the belt you saw on Shark Tank.
