Gear Flagrant Beard Launches New Apparel Line Recoil Staff August 26, 2015 Join the Conversation Tennessee-based Flagrant Beard has a new apparel line consisting of shirts, socks, and something that will actually keep your gun up: belts. They tell us they are the “…only adventure, hard-use apparel company headquartered in a barn,” and they're probably right. If the shirts and socks aren't your thing, no doubt you at least wear a belt. Well, Flagrant Beard has a somewhat different take on the typical ‘tactical' or ‘adventure' belt, and it involves the Amish. Here's what they have to say about 'em: Handsome enough for church or formal dinner but rugged enough for a fight, they’re hand-made by Amish artisans near Nashville to exacting standards. The belts come in 2 styles, FB DuraBelt and FB Articulated Leather. Articulated Leather versions are available in black, burgundy or tan (sorry, no MultiCam or Gucciflage, and there’s no MOLLE or Velcro either). They’re 3/16 in. thick so they won’t “taco” under a gun or magazines and offer contrast stitching. The DuraBelts look and feel like leather but are actually a polyester webbing with a TPU coating that makes them more durable, waterproof and easy to clean. They offer 2 ½ tons of tensile strength; enough to STABO some guys, though so far we haven’t actually tried it. DuraBelts are anti-microbial and offer extreme resistance to abrasion and moisture. Both belt styles feature threaded rivets to allow for interchangeable buckles, both are 1.5 in. wide and both are sturdy enough to beat someone to death but remain sufficiently comfortable for all-day wear. Oh, and they’ll hold up your pants. Some of their other loot: To purchase or for more information on Flagrant Beard, check out their webpage here or follow them on Facebook. We get word they have a custom knife line coming soon; stand by for some field evals of their gear. (Well, the belts anyway…not as easy to review socks but it can certainly be done.)
