Over the course of almost two centuries, the gear in a soldier’s kit has changed quite significantly. The photographer Thom Atkinson documented thirteen of these kits, ranging from a huscarl at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 to a close-support sapper in the Royal Engineers from 2014, in a Hypebeast Essentials style. The series, published on Telegraph UK, is called Soldiers Inventories, and it’s serious history porn.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
