Generic BSA Leather Belt?

Recommended Posts

Is there like a generic leather belt for the BSA? I know places like summit, Philmont, etc... have custom ones but I have never been to any high adventure.

I had a leadership belt buckle presented to me and I would like to use it but I don’t have any leather belts.

PS Only one week of camp left!

My summer camp’s trading post had blank belts that you could tool during the week. Is that an option?

The one I’m staffing is not carrying custom leather belts anymore, and never carried blank ones. They lost money when they sold them and took to long to produce.

Not even for Leatherworking MB? That makes me sad.

What kind of overhead does your trading post have that they’re losing money on blank belts? Or do they just not generate as much revenue as pre-tooled belts?

Any official uniform part is official for all time.   We don't have a uniform.  We have a brand of clothing.

They do not sell blank, only pretooled.
