The DAA Lynx belt is a totally new, innovative concept for competition shooting belts.
It is assembled by the user himself, using individual plastic links, which assemble together by means of strong steel roll-pins. These linked are made of an extremely durable Nylon, reinforced by glass fiber and tougheners.
The Velcro Hooks on the links are formed by an over-mould injection process, making them a permanent feature of each link. They are not glued on Velcro tabs, but injection moulded formed, providing maximum strength and longevity.
Links are available in 9 colors, so each shooter can design his own belt. You can mix and match as you please, adding a dash of color to match your National Flag or your shooting outfit.
Available colors are: Black, Grey, White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue Purple and Green
Once assembled, these links create a belt which is totally rigid in the critical vertical axis – keeping loaded magazines and holsters solid and stable, preventing any lifting during the draw motion. While at the same time – the hinged freedom of motion between the links, in the horizontal plane, means that the belt can be rolled up to a much smaller size than a rigid one-piece belt.
This horizontal-plane flexibility allows the belt to be rolled up tightly, and placed easily inside any range bag. It also means the belt follows closely the body’s contour of even the smallest, thinnest shooter without lifting away from the body or creating uncomfortable pressure points. (issues common with one piece rigid belts). The DAA Lynx belt is far more comfortable to wear for extended periods.
The expanding Buckle Assembly of the Lynx Belt allows for about 4.5cm of length adjustability and closes the belt ends together. Since its over-all length is short – it can easily be worn in the front, between the holster and front mag pouch – even when that front pouch is positioned in the center of the body. This prevents the need to close the belt on ones back, as is often done with one piece overlapping belts.
Each DAA Lynx Belt includes:
- Links in the number and color selected by the customer
- One DAA Inner belt (size of which is calculated in the builder)
- A Buckle assembly which includes:
- A fully assembled buckle
- A bag with 50 roll pins
- A punch tool for removing pins
- A spare silicon O-ring for the buckle
Link dimensions: 33mm long from pin to pin. 38.7mm tall, thickness on the Velcro pad is 8.8mm, 7mm off the pad
