The LIGHT ASSAULT BELT SYSTEM (LAB™) is an exclusive product available only from AWS, Inc. A culmination of years of engineering, testing, retesting, testing again and a lot of hard work. So many of our military and special operations customers provided "real world" operational input as to the gear problems they experienced in training and combat operations. We cannot thank them enough for their input. Our staff took all of that to task to make a better product. Took longer than we expected but it is here now. You will see many new product features as well as a new way to buy a belt system. It will be copied but never duplicated. Please remember you saw it here first at AWS, Inc. Quality service since 1970! Over 50+ years of quality products and service.
WHAT IS THE LIGHT ASSAULTER BELT SYSTEM?
A specially designed basic shooters belt (w/inner belt) that allows you to configure your setup according to your needs and budget. You can start with a basic belt at $64.25 and add additional components when you want. The LAB™ is a basic systems belt with options for your rifle & pistol magazine pouch, your GP/Utility pouch, your dump/IFAK first aid pouch, retention lanyard and glove/accessory carabiner. All designed to work as a system or individually. You can also use any of your existing gear as well.
The basic individual belt is a two piece system consisting of an outer and inner belt. The outer belt is made from TACWEAVE nylon webbing for an extra stiff construction to support the load of fully loaded magazines, holsters, etc. We only use high quality USA made raw materials. Our QC department fully inspects ALL raw materials upon delivery to ensure conformity and specifications. Everything from the webbing to the thread. We take great care with the manufacture of these belts. So much that we have several specially modified Juki AMS-210E computerized pattern sewing machines especially for this item. Our engineering department programmed a special sewing pattern for maximum strength, carefully calculating the threads per inch, direction and angle of the "WW" pattern. We outfitted the machine with a very special clamping system made in our machine shop that secures the belt and the buckle at the same time for exact positioning prior to sewing. This entire specially modified computerized pattern machine is used only for this these belts. Each belt is sewn exactly the same. All belts are fully inspected three (3) times before they even get to packaging. Once you see the belt you will see the USA made quality.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
When you purchase the basic starter belt for $64.25, a 2" wide black inner belt comes with it. (Most tactical pants have 2" belt loops.) Simply thread the inner belt through your tactical pants belt loops. The inner belt now becomes your regular belt to hold up your pants. The inner belt is made from a stiff 2" wide nylon and has loop sewn to the outside face. When you wear your outer belt, the two belts combine into a very neat and secure belt that contains all of your shooting gear. All of your pouches, holster, etc are trapped between the inner and outer belt using the pants belt loops as an attachment point. The belt stays in place and will not move up or down since it is secured by the belt loops. NO MORE OF THE SHOOTING BELT CREEPING UP YOUR BACK WHEN YOU RUNNING A TACTICAL COURSE, CONDUCTING TACTICAL OPERATIONS OR SIMPLY BENDING OVER! If you need to take a break, simply release the COBRA buckle and the outer belt will separate from the inner belt and you are free from the shooters belt system.
WHAT HOLDS YOUR POUCHES ON THE BELT
The heart of the LAB™ system is a special fully adjustable LAB™ MOLLE panel that allows you to place your gear EXACTLY where you want it. No more having to space your pouch based on the MOLLE pattern. You can put the MOLLE PANEL where you want it. A special Kydex tool is provided to allow the MOLLE PANEL to be easily placed and secured. A special pocket on the inside of the inner belt stores the Kydex tool so you have it with you at all times.
You can place your LAB™ MOLLE PANELS around your holster, plastic mag pouches, knife scabbard, etc. You can morph any of your gear that fits a 1-3/4" belt around the system components OR you can build a custom belt with our system components. The belt configuration is up to you and your budget. Any future LAB™ belt accessories will fit so your belt will stay up to date.
To provide the end user with the ability to control the CONFIGURATION and $$$COST$$$ of setting up your belt. You can now purchase a system of components that are designed to work together for a fully adjustable, comfortable and seamless system.

LAB Shooters belt
I can’t get over how much I like this belt. Combined with one wrap to attach pouches it offers infinite adjustability. Sagging is at a minimum compared to other highly rated belts I own along with the appropriately sized cobra buckle make it the best belt on the market. Getting a second belt to set up a single and double stack mag set.
Great quality of sturdiness while being at a great price. If it is your first belt you are purchasing then this is one to get. It checks every box I needed
Had a fellow soldier highly recommend this belt when looking for an upgrade to my current system. The price is fantastic while still maintaining exceptional standards for quality. Have already recommended to two others who also purchase the same set-up. Great job AWS!!!
The Only Belt. Went Above And Beyond
My twin has a belt from AWS and It is just as great as mine. I ordered a without a RING but they upgraded mine free of charge with a RING PARACORD. I am beyond stoked. Plus it comes it a sticker!
Absolutely love the LAB. I am an LEO (firearms instructor, etc), competition shooter, and avid geardo...and the LAB does not disappoint. This is my second one.. my first one is still good to go, just had to size down one due to cutting for summer lol. But with confidence. AWS kicks ass, and so does the LAB.
Unmatched quality, prices, and customer service
I’ve now bought two belts from AWS. Their products are top notch. I’ve spent countless hours trying to find a cheaper option with at least similar quality- not possible. I’ve felt several other belts too, AWS wins every time. And their customer support is unmatched! I will buy more from them again!
Happy in Tallahassee
I have my Multicam heart-breaker loaded for bear with 85 rounds of 9 mm, tourniquet, holstered Beretta 92A1, and a dump pouch/medical combo; all of the mag holders and accessories were purchased from AWS. The feel of the belt against the body (I wear mine fairly tight) fully loaded is rock solid. What a great addition to my kit bro, just what I needed. Thank you AWS for providing freedom loving Americans with high quality kick-ass products.
Best scalable belt for training use
AWS Inc is a wonderful company where it produces high quality items for the Warfighter and Law Enforcement professionals. The LAB™ BELT SHOOTERS SYSTEM is a strongly constructed belt on where it can hold a pistol, ammunition, baton, handcuffs, and radio securely on a person. Additionally the belt is modular in where MOLLE adaptors can be added to add options for the shooter. In sum, the belt can be configured to whatever configuration that suits the person’s mission.
Generally, I do not write reviews of products, mainly because I have a mentality of "it is what it is" when buying things, however, I feel that given the quality of this belt and the awesome service from the company, I can make an exception. First of all, shipping costs and delivery times, even with the USPS being delayed here in Philly due to severe weather were extremely reasonable. I received my belt in less than 4 days. The belt itself is very rigid, and the inner belt is pretty comfortable. It fits my OCP-issued pants without a problem and does the job without breaking the bank. A solid product that will definitely last a while. The only thing I would recommend is to buy a couple of the MOLLE panels, or more if you'd like. I mounted a blowout pouch to it, as well as ESSTAC Kywis 2+1 pouches using Velcro OneWrap, however, still ordered a couple of extra panels in order to attach a couple more things. All in all, buy with confidence.
