Jedi Belt: Traditional Utility Belt of the Jedi Order

A Jedi belt is a traditional leather utility belt worn by members of the Jedi Order over their tunic. A Jedi typically attaches vital items to the adjustable belt including their personal lightsaber and several pouches containing essential tools and survival items. Although many Jedi from the Old Republic era up to the Clone Wars era wear a Jedi belt along with traditional Jedi robes, the Jedi Order does not mandate a specific dress code.
