    Can you someone give me an advice how to attach knife sheath to pants with no belt? The sheath has opening for belt, but my pants has no belt neither ears to use the belt on them.

    Thank you.

    What kind of pants are you using?
    Also, do you already have knife that you want attachment to or are you planning to buy knife? I'd recommend pocket carry in case possible.

    Pants have no ears to fasten the belt.

    Double stick tape with velcro.

    OK, that makes more sense. :p

    If the knife isn't too heavy, pocket carry it! If not, go out and buy yourself a pair of pants with belts loops.

    Velcro is not strong enough to hold safely 300g fixed blade knife with sheath.

    I think Blade-Tech makes a Tech Clip that is similar in function.

    Duct tape. Strap it to your leg and tell people it's a drop-leg rig.

    how about using a stainless steel money clip. you could attach the sheath to the clip, then clip the it on to your waist band.

    Loop a lanyard to it and then stuff the weaved end into your pants? I have no idea if that will work, just spitballing

    You can buy one and copy it:)
    Cutting it out and bending it is easy to figure out, setting the tension is the trick and that part is a deadly secret...

    I would go with the idea of buying some pants that have "ears" on them. Never heard that term before. Most pants I've seen with out belt loops are made from lightweight material. I'm not sure that beltless pants could hold up a 300g (10.58 ounce) knife without the weight pulling them down some, or in a very active scenario, where you might lose the knife off the waistband of your pants.

    Yep, a pair of pants with belt loops, and a belt, would be my choice!

    Maybe you can attach some paracord (with breakaway clasp) and wear it like a neck knife?

    Some kind of clip and maybe a kydex sheath to fit it on. Those have to be the oddest choice of camping/hiking pants I can remember seeing.
