A variation of the standard belt, the Mandalorian Tool Belt has been in use for several thousand years. Sources dating back as far as the Mandalorian Wars have been known to praise the belt, citing its versatility and high storage capacity for combat operations.
The Mandalorians, being warriors at heart, understood full well that reaction times were crucial in a battle. As a result the entire design is based around quick and easy access for any equipment, from grenades to breathing filters. More importantly however, given that Mandalorian soldiers were often placed in major battles for extended periods of time, the belt itself is far larger than others. While most warriors simply filled this space with additional grenades or ammunition, it also allowed them to bring additional survival gear to battle. This extra capacity in tandem with the practical design made their belt an invaluable asset on the battlefield.
Given the great variety of races that adhere to the Mandalorian philosophy, the belts are individually created to fit each user. The belt itself can be textured with sewn leather, Bantha hide or even Krayt Dragon scales. Mandalorian tradition dictates that one may only incorporate materials gathered from their own kills into the belt, making Krayt Dragon scale belts extremely rare and prestigious. While few still know the old designs to create these coveted suits of armour, they are passed down from generation to generation by Mandalorians, so that some belts have seen use for hundreds, if not thousands of years and serve as a constant reminder of the great deeds of heroic ancestors.
