After I went thought the instructable other users have made about paracord belts, I noticed that there was only one adjustable belt but unfortunately it had a clasp and tongue type buckle. I liked the the idea of a paracord belt but I wanted to be adjustable and I did not want a clasp and tongue type buckle since I am not a fan. My belt will be made in a 14 strand flat braid using separate 7 cords. I think as a survival belt this would be better suited since a single cord can be removed with a bit of effort but the belt will not fall apart and become un-usable.

I have also seen a different design that uses 2 D-rings and a piece of webbing but I also decided against that design as well since its basically a webbing belt wrapped in paracord.

For this instructable I will be using a buckle I made myself for a everyday webbing belt.

I also made a  instructable on how to make a No Weld Belt Buckle over here. http://www.instructables.com/id/No-Weld-Belt-Buckle/

The buckle is made to a design similar to the Soviet Military belt buckles. http://warrelics.eu/forum/equipment-accessories-personal-items/soviet-belt-buckle-naval-25936/ The buckle is made from stainless steel plate that had been polished and TIG welded together. 

Step 1: This is what you will need.

The belt will be of such a design that you will be able to substitute my type of buckle to a different type for example a plastic clasp.

I also had some trouble finding the right parts for my belt since the store I brought the clasps and D rings, only stocked clasp for thin webbing. All the buckle and clasp where cheap enough so I brought a sample of each

So this is the parts list.
- Paracord (Different colors if you feel happy)
- Clasps, buckles and D-rings(See pictures)
- Scissors
- Lighter
- G-clamp (optional)
- Paperclips (optional)
- Belt (optional but useful for sizing)
<strong>I would really like to see what the weave looks like done, but the pictures ar a bit out of focus or it may just be the color and texture of the material. Could you do a small sample piece with an alternate color or with two colors so we can see the actual weave design?<br> Thanks!</strong>
hate to break it to ya but that doesnt look like real 550 cord. just sayin
Hi I would probably say in between it was sold as paracord on a spool at the camping store. The guy told me it was cheaper type without a core and a lower breaking strength that they sell as replacement tent lines
In the 4th paragraph of step 2 you state:<br><br>&quot;Using a belt of a piece to cord measure your waist to where you belt will naturally sit to hold up your pants and add about 20 of the lenth to the belt.&quot;<br><br>Twenty what?
Sorry about that. It was late and I was tired. Thanks for pointing out.
