Purpose Built

This handsome full grain leather belt appears inconspicuous, but we've included our unique Permastiff™ insert to provide enhanced stability to support the weight of your sidearm, as well as a hidden cuff key keeper located at the center rear. Reinforced stitching and an I-beam buckle provide lasting durability that stands up to rugged use. The nickel-plated buckle offers a touch of style, and features a subtle 5.11® logo stamped at the lower left.

Excellent long wearing belt.


From Sparky-gastech


Belt is leather front and back with a plastic stiffener inside. I have had one for 8 years worn daily. It has been one of the best belts I have owned. I just order a new one, I love it.

Very poor quality, not Built To Last!


From Jessie


Wore this belt almost daily for 6 months or less, and it broke today. Compared to the last gun belt I used that was also a 5.11, that one lasted 5 years! Not sure what changed, but this thing is not good quality!

Holds up well with fullsized semi-auto. Fit and finish is really good.

From "Big Dan"

from Streator, Illinois

I have worn this belt everyday since I received it. It is a beautiful addition to the wardrobe. By far the finest belt I have ever owned.

Great Belt... size specific though...


From AFMedic542

from Lawton, Oklahoma

The only complaint I have is that I've got a 38" waist... I originally ordered the XL and while it was perfect I had an extra 6 inches to grow and still a couple holes left in the belt when buckled. Not really liking the extra "tail" sticking out - I don't wear a duty belt over this one - I ordered the L - well I was right at the last hole. So there literally is no "crossover" between the sizing on these belts at all. Other than that - Not a complaint in the world, probably the most rigid, solid stitched, and imprinted belt I've ever purchased in my 25+ years of Public Safety work. Sturdy enough it will support you and some gear (Holster, Radio... etc) without any problem. And the hidden cuff key pouch is a Great Idea too... right where you'd need it!



From Tim

from Columbia, SC

I purchased this belt on Monday, wore it on Tuesday, and when I took it off Tuesday night I noticed where the "leather" had started to tear where I wear my holster. I wear a Gould and Goodrich IWB holster for a S&W J frame. I am a private citizen and don't put even normal wear and tear on my belt, holsters, or other gear. I carry because I am handicapped and believe this potentially makes me an easy target for criminals.

This belt is NOT leather and I would not recommend buying it for any purpose other than holding your pants up. If the receipt hadn't been thrown away while we were on vacation last week, I'd return the belt. I tried it with the retailer after wearing it one day, but they wouldn't take it back even though they remembered me and knew me as a FORMER regular customer. The manufacturer requires it so reviews and Facebook are all I have left as far as a protest, I guess. This review won't get posted, but it made me feel better to write it.

I gave this product a rating of one star because that's the only way I could complete the review. I honestly rate it at 0 stars, because it is not made of the material advertised by 5.11.

Will last a lifetime
