This belt is made with 8 Cape buffalo bullet loops and is specifically designed to hold cartridges (.470 NE, .416 Rigby, .500 NE, .505 Gibbs and all other half inch cartridges) that are too big for our other leather culling belts. It will even accommodate larger cartridges with some break-in. There is a gap in the middle of the loops to separate softs and solids. Due to the weight of these big bore cartridges we made the leather belt extra-thick so it would provide a stable platform for easy extraction. Even when your rounds are all the way in, the rim tops are above the belt for easy access. The heavy-duty buckle is non-reflective black and secured with two rivets for a lifetime of adventure

These culling belts are made to our exacting specifications, sized to fit magnum cartridges from 7MM - .416 Rem mag. These belts are are extremely thick to facilitate the removal of big bore cartridges and we designed them so the rim of the cartridge is above the top of the belt so you can get a good grip on them. The tongues are extra long so you can cinch them down tight, even if you are at the top of the size distribution for that particular size. They have 12 loops so you can leave one or two empty in the middle to separate softs from solids. The sizes shown are fitted to go over an existing belt (the one that keeps your pants up) so do not order the next size bigger. For example, if you wear 36" belts, you would order a small (30" - 36") culling belt.

Choose from Gray Elephant ($249), Zebra ($249) or Cape Buffalo ($229).

Small (30-36”), Medium (38-44”), and Large (46-52)

Cut from full grain leather and painstakingly hand stitched by the Els & Co team of local craftswomen, these women strive to deliver an experience in product quality that embodies the boundless essence of Africa.

Just tip the bottle and allow a cloud of fine powder to fall out and watch how the cloud behaves in the air. You will be able to detect even a slightest wind. Designed by hunting enthusiasts, you won't find yourself on the wrong side of the wind.

Plus, Els & Co has incorporated a secret compartment in the brass bottle for antihistamines and pills so that you won't be left without any help in emergency situations.

Canvas & Leather Culling Belt

Code: SOCA300-004
Price: $99.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
These are designed after one we saw that was used during elephant culling operations by Rob Murray when he was a Game Ranger with the Rhodesian Parks Service during the 1970’s. We have improved upon the all canvas culling belt concept with this stiffer version that is reinforced with thick leather on both ends. The 3” cotton webbing and heavy-duty brass buckle means you can rally cinch this down to facilitate quick and easy access to big-bore ammo. Bullet loops will expand to hold anything from a 7MM Magnum to .500 nitro but you will have to break them in a bit for the really big stuff. The dozen bullet loops allow you to leave a few of them open in the middle to separate softs from solids. These are designed so the buckle out of the way in the back when the ammo is on your shooting side. Order them a little big so you can put them right over the belt you use to keep your pants up.

Double Rifle Tripod Rest

Code: SHST500-1
Price: $39.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
We developed this specifically for double rifle shooters who want to practice off our shooting sticks. The relatively tight “V” on our sticks works great to lock in bolt actions and single shots but it is a bit narrow for the wide fore ends found on doubles. This piece gives you a flat, padded rest for your double rifle. Shooting upright off sticks lets you sight in a rifle much faster and also allows you to roll with the recoil instead of being pounded sitting behind a bench. This piece is only intended for range work as the sticks will not collapse when it is in use. This durable, filled extra-thick leather piece is beautifully made and locks onto the top of our sticks with two heavy-duty nylon bands that hold the rest securely in place. Please note that smaller diameter aluminum sticks will not be similarly anchored.


Safari Binocular Sling

Code: SWOP100-001
Price: $39.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
The same type of heavy duty leather strap Tony Makris of “Under Wild Skies” uses. Adjustable for a long hang (shown) or a shorter hang depending on your height and preference. Slides out of the way on your back in seconds and stays there when you need to shoot or crawl. Friction of the leather strap keeps it anchored and for added support you can put it through the button down shoulder flap on your safari jacket. Simple and flawless design that someone should have come up with a long time ago.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
The Els & Co Diepkloof Flask & Sleeve is a magnificent piece of self dyed veg tanned leather that we oil with our own mixture of beeswax and animal fat for that old school look, feel and smell of leather and comes complete with the legendary Stanley Classic Flask (750ml).



Els & Co imports their solid brass studs and loops from small artisanal foundries in the UK where the craft of casting brass is still practiced. The entire sleeve is hand stitched, over 400 stitches in total, with thick wax coated cotton thread that gives a finish of the honest tactility of true craftsmanship.

The cotton canvas strap is soft and comfortable to carry and the length easily adjustable.
