Double Alpha Ratchet Belt


The DAA Ratchet Belt is an evolution of the DAA Premium Belt. Incorporating that same extreme rigidity which has made the DAA Premium Belts the gold standard in IPSC/USPSA competition around the world.

The popularity and success of the Ratchet Buckle offered on the DAA Lynx Belt System, coupled with many customer requests to “offer a one piece belt with a Ratchet” motivated us to develop this new belt and it’s accompanying custom designed Inner Belt.

The outer belt of the DAA Ratchet Belt is made shorter, designed not to overlap as a traditional Velcro closure belt would. Instead, the two ends of the belt are pulled together and held firmly around the waist using a Ratchet and rubber Stap Buckle. This enables the shooter to very quickly and easily adjust the tension of his belt, tightening up the fit when shooting, and loosing it a couple of clicks for improved comfort between stages.

This new design changes how the sizing of this belt works:

The size indicated on the belt is the actual length of the belt section end-to-end – excluding the extended Ratchet Stap, which adds up to 10cm of length. Consult the table below to select your correct size.
The Ratchet Belt – Inner belt
The Inner belt included with the DAA Ratchet Belt is the custom made DAA Ratchet Inner Belt, which incorporates an innovative soft section, designed to be positioned under the Ratchet Buckle area. This soft section of the inner belt folds in on itself as you tighten the ratchet, without creating an uncomfortable fold in the inner belt or pressure point on the body. Simply place that soft section in the position where you know  your Ratchet will be, and enjoy improved comfort and performance.

The DAA Ratchet Belt Inner Belt is pointy on both ends, making it easier to thread through pant loops in either direction, to best position the collapsible section.

When supplied with a complete Ratchet Belt, the DAA logo on the inner belt webbing, matches the outer belt colors: Black/Silver belts have silver webbing logo, Blue belts have Blue webbing logo, Red belts have Red webbing logo.

This new Ratchet Inner belt is available and sold separately too – recommended for those using the Lynx belt with a Ratchet Buckle.
