Beautifully finished by the company?s skilled craftsmen in their workshop in Malton, North Yorkshire, this leather cartridge belt with a 2in-wide solid brass buckle is at the luxury end of the market.

Every hide used for Croots? bridle leather is hand-picked and vegetable-tanned in the age-old fashion.

Rather than the usual hard leather that takes years before the loops loosen up, it is supple and treated using a traditional blend of fats, oils and waxes that feeds the leather, adding a deep layer of protection and a distinctive look.

The belt has 25 open loops for 12- or 20-bore cartridges. It comes in medium (36in to 42in), large (42in to 48in) and extra large (48in to 54in).
