Why Wear an Elastic Belt?

January 09, 2017 David Wilson

How is an elastic belt different? The main differentiator between elastic belts and ordinary belts is, of course, that the straps are made with stretchy elastic material. There are two main forms of elastic: webbing (knit or woven) and elastic cord (often braided). Elastic fabrics are made from rubber and another material, most often cotton, nylon or polyester. The most common types of elastic belts are braided elastic belts, surcingle belts and elastic webbing belts. The BETTA Belt is made with woven polyester elastic webbing, which is the highest quality elastic available.  What are the advantages of elastic belts? The...


New & Improved Buckle Design

October 07, 2016 David Wilson

As the name suggests, BETTA Wear is committed to continuous improvement, stretching to make products betta all the time. We first made elastic belts with a thermoplastic buckle that, while not easy to find, already existed in the marketplace. We liked the design's style and cam buckle functionality. This generic buckle worked great for the most part, but we listened to customer feedback and decided it could be improved. The belt buckle was re-engineered from the ground up, and it's exciting to announce the fantastic results. What Makes the New Buckle Betta? Durability -This custom-designed buckle is tougher. The hinge pins that attach the top panel to the...

Trucker Hats & Metal Belt Buckles

April 11, 2016 David Wilson

Just In: BETTA Trucker Hats We just received a shipment of BETTA headwear! Our new mesh cap features the reversed-out white BETTA logo on a black trucker hat. We are big fans of the ventilation offered by mesh caps, as well as the classic trucker styling. We also prefer polyester material to cotton when it comes to hats. While some manufacturers tout that their hats are made with cotton, we've found that cotton fabric gets dirty quickly, stains easily and tends to show sweat marks. Cotton material also fades when exposed to sunlight and the elements. Faded and discolored hats aren't worthy...
