NHT Belt Bags™

The flagship product of NHT Divers is a revolutionary lobster bag called the NHT Belt Bag.    This efficient, low profile bag provides secure storage for lobster and other sea creatures, yet while empty has virtually no drag in the water.  A simplistic and effective design, coupled with versatility make it a necessary item for divers of all levels.


Two Limits of Huge Lobsters

Two limits of California spiny
lobsters averaging 8 pounds each!

Widely used by experienced lobster freedivers, NHT Belt Bags are the most effective storage tool for collecting lobsters, abalone, fish, scallops, clams, crabs, sea shells, and other treasures found in the ocean.  It’s streamlined design reduces the “catchiness” of these bags on eel grass and kelp.



Belt Bag Rolled

These high-capacity bags are so compact that divers easily forget they are even carrying them.


Yet they expand when needed to accommodate even the largest bounty!

7 Lobsters averaging 7 pounds each!

Belt Bag holding Shell

Tie the bottom of the bag in a temporary knot to reduce capacity.  Perfect for northern California abalone divers who stray too far from their floats! 


Chum Bag

Bluewater divers love the ability to adjust the size of the bag to accommodate the secure and hands-free portability of their “chum” bags. 


Photographers use the bags to carry accessories.

These bags can fit anything!

Safety Notice!!!

-  The NHT Belt Bag may cause entanglement on your weight belt should a diver need to drop their weight belt.  For this reason the belt is fitted with a quick-release snap (buckle).  Be sure you are aware of the location of this snap at all times and also be sure your weight belt buckle contains no parts that may catch on the NHT Belt Bag.

-  As the belt bag will be positioned over the groin while in a vertical position, such as when surfacing, we recommend that certain animals NOT be put into a NHT Belt Bag while strapped to a diver’s waist.  These animals include, but are not limited to:

  • California Scorpion Fish
  • Snapping Turtles
  • Sea Urchins
  • Large Crabs
  • Sharks of any kind
  • Wolf or Moray eels
  • Rockfish
  • Pit Bull Terriers

Additionally, certain man-made objects should not be carried in an NHT Belt Bag while strapped to a user’s waist.  These include:

  • Knives
  • Chinese throwing stars
  • Loaded firearms
  • Chain saws
  • Bags of broken glass
  • BBQ skewers
  • Or any other sharp objects

Finally, studies have shown that carrying block ice in an NHT Belt Bag has resulted in a temporary shrinkage of the male reproductive organ.  We do not recommend such usage for this bag.
