Difficult to Use

 Rated 2.0 stars

From DJ


I love 5.11 and am a diehard fan. I've owned this belt for two years and can say this belt is not user-friendly for everyday use. I carry IWB just about every day and everything about this belt holds up well, but as for needing to use the restroom and fastening it back up, it can be quite the pain. The problem is trying to get the belt to double up behind itself as you would have to do to wear it properly. The material causes it to resist being put on every time. I do not recommend this purchase and would consider other traditional belts sold by 5.11. Honestly, I don't know how this belt has not been discontinued.

I like this belt good quality

Very disappointed

 Rated 2.0 stars

From Nathan


They suggest to order one size up, I completely disagree I'm using the very last holes now because I listened to the advice. Also the belt seems stiff but won't even hold its own weight when buckled and held out it flops over. Let alone when you carry a iwb holster it's tight at the beginning of the day and as the day goes in the belt stretches out and doesn't conceal your firearm well at all. For a 50 dollar belt there are way better options out there.

Only belt you will need

Amazing EDC belt!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Alex


I am normally the guy who never writes reviews on anything I buy even if I really like it. But this belt has far exceeded my expectations for a gun belt. I have owned this belt for about 3-4 months and worn it everyday with either my owb or iwb holsters. This belt is extremely comfortable, and there is no sign of stretching around the holes where the two hooks latch into. It is a bit of a challenge initially working with the hook system, but it isn't as hard as I was led to believe by other reviewers. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a long lasting gun belt.

Unquestionable Quality

From Anders B-V.


I've had this belt for a few months now. It's a great belt. All the materials are very durable and the belt will most likely last a long time. While the two hook system took me a while to get used to I have no problem with it now. The belt looks professional as well and isn't too flashy. Though I do think that the white 5.11 logo is very out of place especially compared to the rest of the completely blacked out belt. Overall a professional, durable and very reliable belt. I do recommend.

Just Buy It, It's Good

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Rustedbucket

As a teacher and CCL holder, I needed to find a belt that worked for professional dress but also met the needs for EDC when I wasn't on school property. I came across the Apex online and it looked like it fit the bill. Most of the comments talk about how the belt grips to itself; it does, but it's not nearly as difficult as people make it out to be. To be honest, I almost LIKE that it's difficult as it allows me to really focus on its security and fit when using my horsehide IWB.

If you're debating about buying this belt, do yourself a favor and just do it. The only REAL issue I have with it is that they do not make it in Black with a Silver buckle. I'll be purchasing the Brown/Silver soon, and would pounce on a Black/Silver the second it became available.

Thanks, 5.11!
