The Emdom/MM CM Belt is a design collaboration between Emdom USA and MM from www.militarymorons.com. "CM" stands for "Cingulum Militare" which is Latin for the military belt that the warriors of ancient Rome hung their swords and daggers from. It is designed as a low profile, lightweight, and rigid duty belt. It can be used alone or in conjunction with a MOLLE war/battle belt. The CM Belt supplements our Emdom/MM Battle Suspenders as a purpose-driven load carriage system. The CM Belt is compatible with pouches and holsters designed for 2" wide belts and/or MOLLE/PALS platforms.

Sizing guide:
CM Belt sizes are exact measurement ranges in inches. The lower number is the smallest the belt will adjust to, the higher number is the largest the belt will adjust to. These size ranges are NOT based on pant size. In order to determine the size you need it is recommended to measure around the clothing you plan to wear under the CM Belt with a tape measure. Use this measurement to determine which size range best fits your needs. If you plan to utilize our Emdom/MM CM Belt Pad Set you must add a minimum of one inch.

  • Small: 27" – 31" (Cannot be returned or exchanged, final sale.)
  • Medium: 31" – 35"
  • Large: 35" – 39"
  • Extra Large: 39" – 43"
  • Custom Size (Cannot be returned or exchanged, final sale.)

The CM Belt is constructed of 1000D Cordura wrapped around a stiff HDPE insert, which gives it load bearing rigidity. The interior is lined with 2" wide webbing. Sewn to the webbing is 1" wide webbing paired with 1" wide loop Velcro which is bartacked at regular intervals creating loops. By utilizing 1000D Cordura instead of scuba webbing, we’re able to offer the CM Belt in multiple color options.

Interior webbing loops:
Allows compatibility with most pouches and holsters designed for 2" wide belts and/or MOLLE/PALS platforms. The interior row of 1" wide loop Velcro lined webbing is bartacked every 1.5" creating loops through which MOLLE straps or MALICE clips can pass through. This prevents pouches from shifting side to side. Towards the front and sides are sections 2.5" wide to accommodate holsters and subloads/drop leg rigs that are 2" wide (size small and medium have two 2.5" sections, size large and extra large have three 2.5" sections). For some pouches with Velcro wrap around attachments, the loop Velcro lined webbing will prevent these from sliding as well.

The CM Belt is designed to accommodate MOLLE/PALS and dedicated belt pouches. When mounting with MALICE clips, only the top two rows of webbing on the back of the pouch are used, and the short MALICE clip is tightened to the 2nd slot. This coupled with the interior webbing loops will prevent the attached pouch from shifting in any direction. However, when attaching MOLLE pouches with traditional mounting straps, these will be a bit loose due to the wider spacing of the webbing.

Belt buckle:
A 2" wide ITW Snap Dragon buckle was chosen for is durability and unique locking mechanism which - unlike traditional buckles - prevents accidental opening due to pressure or bumps to any side. The ITW Snap Dragon buckle can only be released by pulling on the quick release tab which is looped and bartacked onto the female end of the buckle. The quick release tab is 1" wide webbing and features a female snap which is secured to the male snap located on the belt loop on the opposite end of the belt.

Size adjustment:
Fit is adjusted by lengthening or shortening each end of the belt on both sides of the ITW Snap Dragon buckle. The ends are secured with Velcro and keeper loops (one on each end).

War/battle belt:
If the CM Belt is used as an inner belt for a MOLLE war/battle belt, it is recommended to purchase a size up. To be certain of what size is needed, measure the circumference of the MOLLE war/battle belt over your waist.

The CM Belt is designed to work with the Emdom/MM Battle Suspenders. Pairing the Emdom/MM CM Belt and Battle Suspenders creates a supportive load bearing platform which distributes load weight between the shoulders and hips.

4 of 5 Good product but color was off. October 1, 2023
Reviewer: Scott Sutherland from Lehi, UT United States  
I like the belt a lot. It feels very sturdy and comfortable and I'm a big fan of the design. I only complaint is that one of the reasons I got this specific belt is because it came in a gray color, but when I got it it was not the Shane gray as the pictures on the site. It has a decidedly greenish cast to it, which I'm not a fan of. I like the belt a lot and still intend to use it as my primary battle belt, but I do really wish that it had been the color I expected.

2 of 5 Be wary of sizing September 23, 2023
Reviewer: Andrew Whelchel from Coralville, IA United States  
Had to wait all summer for the belt to finally arrive.  But it was certainly smaller than advertised.  The sizing guide had me at a large, but I had to max out the belt in order to buckle it with just shorts on.  When I tried to arrange a return or exchange it took a couple weeks to hear back from anyone to give me instructions.  Moreover, if I wanted an exchange, I would have to wait an additional 3-4 months to receive it.  Not sure If I'm going to order from this company in the future.  I'm pretty sure I also posted a similar review when prompted a while ago, but they must have deleted.  We'll see if they delete this one.

2 of 5 Inside loops not durable June 8, 2023
Reviewer: Tyler from Texas  
I bought this belt many years ago, and just recently got around to setting it up for a range training rig. While I like the design of it, even lightly handling the belt to install pouches caused the inside molle loops to fray badly. I'll continue to use it until it fails, I just expected better for the price.

5 of 5 Great Minimalist War Belt March 24, 2022
Reviewer: Jeff from Palmer, AK United States  
I now own three of these. The full 2” width is perfect for so many pouches. 1.75” belts often leave gear loose and sloppy, while bigger belts feel huge. I expected to change the buckles over to Cobras, but I actually like the plastic buckles—they’re plenty strong and more silent. The design also wastes a little less of the 12:00 real estate compared to other designs. It’s good kit.
