No matter what sort of lifestyle you lead, eventually you’re going to need a belt. And if you’re a GeekDad, not just any old belt will do. You need something unique. Something bold. Something, well, a little geeky. Enter the Mission Belt.
The No-Holes Belt
Unlike other leather belts I’ve worn over the years, the Mission Belt doesn’t have any holes. Instead, it uses a quick-release ratcheting system (ratchets are cool) — which is sort of like strapping a leather zip-tie around your waist — to provide a very comfortable, consistent fit.
And because the belt adjusts every 1/4″ (as opposed to more traditional belts with holes every 1″), it always fits perfectly, even if you’ve just eaten a big meal. Simply pinch the quick-release button and ratchet it up or down as needed.
How the Mission Belt Works
Mission Belts are made from quality leather in a variety of mix-and-match colors and styles with two different widths, 35mm (selling for $34.95) and 40mm ($39.95). They also offer kid-sized belts with fun names like Kid Spidey for $26.99.
The Mission Behind the Belt
Mission Belt is not just a flashy name, however. There’s actually a philanthropic mission that’s built right into how the company operates. Every time they sell a belt, $1.00 is donated to help fight global hunger and poverty through peer-to-peer micro-lender Kiva.com.
To date, these donations from Mission Belt Co. have resulted in more than 6,200 micro-loans to enterprising individuals in developing countries all over the world.
Gift Sets for GeekDads
The Mission Belt Co. offers premium gift sets from the Fresh, Solids, 3 Bar, and Metals Collections, perfect for Father’s Day gifting. Each gift set holds three pre-selected belts packaged in a stylish matte black gift box, priced at $99.95 (for 35mm belts) and $114.95 (for the 40mm variety).
So if you’re in need of something new to hold up your pants, give the Mission Belt a try. Not only will you get a good looking belt, but you’ll also help a small business owner somewhere in the world build financial independence.
