Does anyone know where to source small plastic belt buckles like the ones Sitka build into their pants? I can't stand anything over a 1" belt strap and need a nice flat profile buckle to fit under my pack. I have one belt that came with a pair of Sitka pants years ago with the perfect buckle but can't seem to find where to source something similar. Looking for a buckle like the top one in the below picture. 1" strap with easy clip and tighten abilities. All belts these days seem to be huge and bulky to fit the "tactical" fad. 3-600x419.jpg

I have found center release buckles no problem at all. I am looking more for the quick connect style like on the Sitka belts. I believe I have found a couple belts on Amazon that have the same buckle. I ordered them to see ands will know more this weekend.

Looked for them a couple years ago (I too like the belt that came on my sitka pants) and could never find them.. looked again a little yesterday when I saw your question and once again came up with nothing.

Following along to see if anyone can find a source..

It looks similar to a Columbia belt I have, but I can't seem to find them for sale. It's a 1" webbing, and the buckle is very low profile. Looks like it only comes with pants when you buy them here's one that's close

Those are center release buckles that are very easy to find. I don't like the push button release when you have gloves/cold hands so the clip is far nicer. I ordered these on Amazon to check out. They look to be what I want on the picture but we will see how they show up. I will post back when they arrive.

Rockywoods has a 1 inch buckle that looks different but sounds like it might fit your needs. I find buckles to be really frustrating to search for, it's hard to know where to look and how to name the features you specifically want in a search.
Not sure if I'm allowed to post links, if not the part number is 6548-1

The Amazon one looks close, I’ll be curious what you find out. I also like that Sitka one you’re trying to replicate. It’s the only belt I use with any of my hunting pants

Here's another option without the center release button.

Or I wonder if one of the Fidlock options might be a good fit?

It is close however slightly larger. I believe I can make it work but I will keep looking for the smaller buckle like Sitka has.

@strousek, call up Fidlock. If you ask nicely they will probably give you a free sample and they have some buckles that I think you will find to your liking.
