These belts are made from the back strap or central back portion of the saltwater crocodile skin. The leather in this section is bone free in the saltwater crocodile, unlike that of other crocodilians, so the leather quality is uncompromised. The raised scutes give a three-dimensional quality, accentuated by the tanning and dyeing process. Each belt shows a gradation in the scutes from neck to tail, since each is made without joins from a single skin. The belt is well finished with a cowhide backing, suitable for casual wear. The solid brass buckle is attached with Chicago screws. It can be detached so you may use your favorite buckle. Crocodile leather keeper. These hand cut belts vary in width from 1¼ to 1½ inches wide. Color is Dark Brown. Made in Australia from farm raised Saltwater crocodile.

Note on belt size: Australian belts are sized with about ½ inch less allowance than our American belts. Order the next size up if your belts normally run tight.

These farm raised crocodile products are for shipment in the US only due to Fish and Wildlife regulations.

  • Crocodilians

    The effort to save the crocodilians is the outstanding success story of the world's wildlife conservation movement. Of the 23 species all but a few are in good numbers in their native ranges, many with large farming operations providing skins and meat while helping to protect and expand wild populations. Effective programs are in place ensuring the survival of those still considered to be in a less satisfactory state. For information on this subject, and the state of individual species, we suggest the following website: Crocodilians -- Natural History and Conservation.

    Please note: Due to the strict US import and export regulations, we are unable to ship crocodilian leather products outside the US.

  • Care

    Fine leather deserves good care. We suggest a light coating of Pecard Leather Dressing every six months to help maintain the fine appearance and durability of these belts.

  • Belt Size

    Belt size depends on your girth where your belt is worn and the buckle you intend using with the belt. The belt size is measured from the buckle end of the belt leather to the hole used.

    You can determine your belt size using one of the following methods. Our Hornback Crocodile belts allow about +/- 1 inch adjustment in size, ½ inch less allowance than our American belts. If you are between sizes, or if your belts normally run tight, order the next size up.

    Belt Measurement

    Method 1

    Measure a belt you are currently using from the buckle end of the belt leather to the hole in use. Round to the nearest ½ inch, then determine your belt size from the following chart. This method works best when you have a belt that fits well and will be using a similar belt buckle with your new belt.

    Belt Size 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44
    Belt Measurement (inches) 28½-30 30½-32 32½-34 34½-36 36½-38 38½-40 40½-42 42½-44
    Girth at Belt 28-29 30-31 32-33 34-35 36-37 38-39 40-41 42-43

    Belt Size Belt Measurement (inches) Girth at Belt
    30 28½-30 28-29
    32 30½-32 30-31
    34 32½-34 32-33
    36 34½-36 34-35
    38 36½-38 36-37
    40 38½-40 38-39
    42 40½-42 40-41
    44 42½-44 42-43

    Method 2

    Measure your girth at your belt loops while wearing your pants. This measurement will correspond to the belt measurement plus the buckle. Determine your belt size from the chart above. This method works well for belts worn around the hips when you do not have an existing belt to measure.

    A note on buckles ...

    Normal buckles, including all the buckles we sell, add between 1 and 2 inches to the total belt plus buckle measurement when the belt is fastened. If you are planning on using a very large buckle, such as a western style trophy buckle, a smaller belt size might be needed.
