The Most Comfortable Belt

Unbelts are game-changing! My husband frequently claims the Intrepid belt is the best belt he’s ever worn and he’s never going back to traditional belts. The elastic makes them super comfortable and versatile – especially for helping pants that are too big in the waist fit just right.

In addition to their fit and comfort, the bulk-free buckle also doesn’t look lumpy under shirts or create little holes.

Unbelts are size inclusive (0-5X+) and made in Canada with a variety of sustainability initiatives, including using recycled polyester elastic and a zero waste upcycling program. They’re also a B Corp, living wage employer, and give back to community programs and organizations.

Help him experience the ultimate relaxation with a weighted blanket – the weight can help with calming the body and promoting deeper sleep. We love our chunky knit blanket from Bearaby both for the aesthetic and also because it’s not full of plastic beads like many weighted blankets.
