Ready to order your Jelt belt? Make sure you get the best fit that will feel great throughout all your travels and adventures. Our durable and versatile belts feature strong, flexible elastic made from recycled materials, providing a little extra stretch for added comfort. Check out this belt size guide to learn more about our sizing options as well as the different types of belts available in our product collections.

Jelt Belt Sizes

We offer three sizing options for adult and kids’ belt sizes so everyone can find a Jelt belt to suit their lifestyle. We encourage customers to place their order based on a recent waist measurement rather than the suggested ages for each belt style.

  • Jelt Standard Unisex (for adult men and women and older teens)
  • Jelt Junior (for ages 5-9ish)
  • Jelt Youth (for ages 9-14ish)

Types of Jelt Belts

Before you determine which size of belt to order, choose the belt style that works best for you. At Jelt, we offer two main types of belts for both adults and youth customers:

  • Sized-to-Fit Belts: Our sized-to-fit belts are designed with specific waist sizes in mind. Adults can get sized-to-fit belts in x-small through large. Jelt Junior and Youth sizes are available as well. Each one stretches up to four inches longer thanks to the elastic material.
  • Adjustable Belts: With these belts, you get a one-size-fits-most option that’s easy to adjust as needed. This is a great option for getting a looser or tighter fit for different activities, fluctuating weight or even sharing with someone else in the family. There are two adjustable styles to choose from: JeltX and Jelt Venture.

How to Measure Your Waist

To help you get the best fit for your Jelt belt, we’ve put together this simple guide for how to measure belt size:

  1. Remove your clothes or measure over very thin clothing.
  2. Hold a tape measure around the part of your body where your belt will sit.
  3. Note your measurement when the tape measure is fitted around you snugly yet comfortably.

Sizing Tips

  • If you don’t have a soft tape measure, use a piece of string. Mark your measurement, then lay it flat to measure it with a regular tape measure.
  • Make sure to breathe out normally (don’t suck in your stomach) while taking your measurement.
  • If your measurement falls between two sizes, order the larger or smaller size based on the fit you are most comfortable wearing.
  • Don’t have an exact measurement or buying a gift for someone else? Check out our belt size conversion chart to see recommended belt sizes based on waist/jean size and U.S. pant sizes.

Our sized-to-fit belt (XS-L) and adjustable belt sizes (one size) can both be found on our belt sizing charts. Keep in mind that we use unisex sizing on our women’s and men’s belt size chart.
