BETTA Update for the New Year

January 05, 2018 David Wilson

It has been quite a while since our last blog post, so I wanted to provide an update on what has been going on with BETTA and what to expect for the upcoming year. By way of excuses,  "write blog post" has been on the to-do list for a long time now, but there always seems to be a higher priority at hand.

August 26, 2016 David Wilson

A couple of weeks ago, we released our new polypropylene web belts and offered email subscribers an exclusive discount. Last week, we added nylon web belts to the lineup, and now we are happy to offer a discounted price on these premium web belts for a limited time (promo details below). But you might be wondering, why purchase a non-elastic web belt, and what is the difference between nylon and polypropylene webbing? Advantages of Web Belts Much like our elastic belts, the new web belts are fully adjustable, very comfortable and functional. While the materials do not stretch like elastic, polypropylene...
