K Muay Thai Belly Pad Construction
The K Muay Thai belly pad is completely handmade, following the same construction methods that have been used for generations. K Muay Thai is a real old school brand and all of their equipment is very traditional in it’s styling and construction.
When compared to belly pads from Fairtex, Twins and Top King; the K Muay Thai belly pad is a much smaller, compact design. Despite it’s compact size, the belly pad is still quite heavy. The weight is the result of it’s very solid construction and the nice thick 100% genuine leather. This belly pad has very dense padding, which makes this pad very solid. These pads are made to take the type of kicks that would break a small tree!
The seams around the belly pad use a traditional Thai technique. This gives the pad a distinctive, traditional look and ensures the pad can really take strong blows.
The belly pad uses high quality leather throughout. The outer surface is one piece of leather, in either black or brown. There are no seams on the front of this pad. The inner surface uses four panels of soft black leather. The inside is fully padded with the same high density padding used in the front of the pad.
The Belly Pad Strap
The strap is made from a classic, full grain leather. It is minimally finished to preserve the leather’s rugged durability. The leather strap is really thick and is double stitched to give it added strength and durability.
The strap is like a really nice leather belt. Although there is no padding on the belt,the leather is very high quality and is comfortable to wear. The belt is wider at the sides and there is plenty of length for adjustment. It features a heavy duty brass buckle. The buckle is extremely securely attached with plenty of reinforcement. The strap itself uses expert reinforcement where it meets the body of the pad. As a result the belt starts off quite rigid. It will break in with use and will last for years to come.
