Wide, substantial, civilized
If you want a webbing belt that is comfortably wide without looking like climbing or tactical gear, this is it.
Compared to many other webbing belts, this belt is wide, substantial and supports weight confortably. The finish of the fabric lacks the shine of nylon and looks similar to cotton webbing.
The metal buckle is easy to adjust in fine increments, holds well, looks nice and is safe with no sharp edges or pinching parts. It is not quite as easy to fasten and unfasten as a plastic camlock buckle, but it looks better and is unbreakable.
The only downside is that between the generous width of the webbing and the slightly rough melted blunt tip, the belt may not feed easily through belt loops. When I shorten mine, I will try to neaten the tip and possibly cut it rounded or tapered.
The flat webbing would work well under a suspension hip belt. The synthetic material should be good around water or for sweaty activities. Easily nice enough to wear in town.
I bought this belt for my significant other when his other belts all broke at once. At first he liked the look but had trouble with it slipping constantly. After about a month he realized there was an alternative way to do the buckle that ended up being more secure than how he had perviously been doing the belt.
Word of warning, if you have slipping issue with this belt, try doing a "double back" method similar to a climbing harness and you'll be fine.
Minimalist. Lightweight. Stylish. Waterproof. Holds tight.
I adjusted mine to size by trimming off the excess and then running a cigarette lighter across the raw end to "cauterize the wound," that is, keep the threads from running.
Works for me
What can I say, it is a belt.
Great belt, lightweight, stays sung.
