Historical belts, from the long belt to the bandoleer
Belts were worn as early as the Neolithic Age. Braided, woven, made of leather or other materials. In the Bronze and Iron Ages they were for the first time closed with belt hooks made of bone or metal and made of metal links. The belt buckle was invented by the Romans. Belts have always served the purpose of holding clothes or objects such as swords and coin bags. Status or religion could also be marked by belts. Since the early Middle Ages belts became longer and longer. The so-called long belts were wrapped around the body several times, the long end was let hanging down in front. Often beautiful belt points were used at the hanging part for decoration purposes, as known from Viking belts. With the leather belt Reeve or Damsel you are historically accurately equipped if you are looking for a medieval belt. Also men wore rather inconspicuous narrow belts. A classic knight belt is always longer than a modern belt, on the one hand to fit easily over a gambeson and armour, and on the other hand because medieval fashion required the belt to be knotted and its end to hang in front. It was not until the Renaissance in the 18th century that wide decorative belts came into fashion like pirate belts. Wide belts were often worn as bandoleer, i.e. across the chest to carry the dagger.
The belt as a bag - where to put your belongings
In the Larp a belt is indispensable, since you almost always need a belt pouch or bag to stow your belongings. Medieval trousers, medieval dresses and medieval cloaks had no pockets. The belongings were worn hanging on the belt. The medieval belt is always visible and therefore also an essential and very decorative element of a Larp outfit. Also weapon holders are attached to belts. So it is worth to choose a robust ambience suitable medieval belt.
