About this project
The Best Fitting Belt, Ever
...Just Got Better
Three new automatic style belt choices in casual fabric that are durable, water resistant and U.V. fade free. AND BONUS hidden bottle opener within the buckle. So you can always keep your pants up and bottles open.
We've designed the buckle mechanisms accurately to serve two purposes- keep your belt fitting perfectly and precisely open bottles.
What is an AUTOMATIC STYLE BUCKLE?
On the BACKSIDE of the belt you'll find a durable Track sewn into the belt that interacts with the spring loaded tab. The track has 40 micro adjustment positions set just 1/4 inch apart. Compare this to a standard belt that has only 5 holes spaced one inch apart. Just insert and tighten to achieve a perfect fit. When you want to release or adjust the size a bit, just pull the ergonomically designed tab on the bottom of the buckle. Its that easy!
On the Frontside, you'll find one of 3 buckle styles we are offering in this campaign and a high quality, durable, stain resistant and water resistant fabric belt. And LOOK... NO HOLES in the belt to stretch and wear out. This belt will be your GoTo Belt for many years and many journeys. Take a closer look at the Buckles and Belts. Every Buckle is available in Silver Nickel or Gunmetal finish. And every Buckle can be paired with any one of our 3 new fabric belts in CHARCOAL, DARK KHAKI and LIGHT KHAKI. There are plenty of combinations to make yours unique.
GoTo Belts are 1.25 INCHES wide.

We received some really great feedback from our first GoTo Belt Leather Belt campaign launched here on Kickstarter in 2014. Thank you to all our backers for your support. Most comments we've received were that we exceeded all expectations with a well built, quality product - and we will continue to strive to over deliver awesomeness....
WE HEARD YOU LOUD AND CLEAR During our last campaign, we heard many requests for a more casual belt strap option.
WE ARE RELENTLESS IN DESIGNING THE BEST BELT EVER
For the past year we have been evaluating and testing options for casual belt straps and found that most of the casual belts in the automatic belt space are heavy duty webbing belts. We wanted a lightweight option that was durable, stain resistant and casual all at the same time. A belt that you can comfortably wear with jeans or shorts.
Our search lead us to an accomplished U.S. manufacturer of unique high quality outdoor fabrics that are water resistant, stain resistant, fade/U.V. resistant and extremely durable. Exactly what we were looking for! After many prototypes sewn and tested in our design studios in San Diego, we have come up with our BEST CASUAL BELT EVER.
On top of introducing a great casual belt that fits you perfectly every time, we worked hard during our last campaign to redesign a bottle opening feature into our buckle, that works simply and efficiently.
We've done lots of testing of the bottle opening feature. We even gave one to a bartender to put through the paces. it works great.
THE BUCKLE CAN EASILY BE REMOVED FROM THE BELT
You can easily remove the buckle and pass it around for others to use as a bottle opener. Just don't let it out of your sight, or you might get caught with your pants down.
Going through Airport Security is a breeze with this belt.
Just pop off your buckle and toss it in the X-RAY tray with your keys, phone, computer and other metallic object.. Leave the belt on so you don't have to spend time threading it back on to your pants after you walk through the scanner.
Your choice from 3 Buckle Styles and Finish Color, as well as, Belt Strap Color will be selected during the SURVEY period, after the campaign have has ended.
GoTo Belts can be customized to fit ANY waist size up to 44". So EVERYONE gets to enjoy the styles.
Risks and challenges
When we launched our first line of GoTo Belts on Kickstarter last year, we learned many valuable lessons. We took the time to get it right, rather than rush to get the product out. Our backers really appreciated this, and we will work to insure that our high standards remain. As always, we will keep our backers up to date with the manufacturing progress.
We've learned that ship dates are sometimes hard to nail down, but having gone through the process before, we are confident that we will meet our projected dates. We actually hope to exceed expectations and deliver earlier.
We have working relationships with several suppliers, and they understand our strict quality control requirements. Everything is in place to launch our new casual belts. We need your support to help fund our initial production minimums.
