What's So Special About A COBRA Buckle?

Every where you look, gun belts, tactical belts, EDC belts are all using a COBRA® buckle. Ever wonder why?

Cobra Buckle
To start, every COBRA® quick release buckle is CNC machined from the highest grade 7075 aluminum alloy. COBRA® buckles are also the strongest load bearing buckles on the market. Each batch of COBRA® buckles are test loaded to withstand at minimum 11 kN (kilonewton) which equates to 2,472.90 lbf (pound-force)... that's a ton and some change of weight.

They're the only stab-lock style fastener in the safety products market that will not open under load. Talk about a reputation to uphold but AustriAlpin does it. These buckles are tested with dust, sand and salt water to meet MILSPEC guidelines and are Berry compliant for the military. It's no wonder why military units and law enforcement agencies choose belts with AustriAlpin buckles. They are strong, durable, and reliable.

AustriAlpin buckles are also used in theme parks for roller coaster seats, climbing and repelling. We've had customers tell us that they've seen AustriAlpin COBRA® buckles at their Six Flags on numerous rides. If you need a sturdy reliable buckle you can't go wrong with a COBRA® buckle.

When you are in a stressful situation the last thing you want to worry about is your gear breaking, not fitting correctly, shifting and moving..you get the point. Here at Applied Gear we have designed our belts to be stiff, durable, reliable and give you the security and peace of mind to focus on the mission. Everything else, training, situational awareness becomes second nature and you can 100% focus on the mission.

That's why we choose to use AustriAlpin COBRA® buckles. They're the best buckle on the market in our opinion!
