This belt is very heavy duty and STIFF, and it holds a holster very well.
It does work very well with the 5.11 Stryke Pants.
But it DOES NOT work with the 5.11 TacLite Shorts. The belt is TOO THICK to use with the TacLite Shorts. The belt will feed through the belt loops, but once you put it on and cinch it down, and velcro the belt onto itself, it becomes too thick to tuck the velcro'ed belt in the belt loop.
I've had this belt for about three weeks. I love it so much, I just ordered a second one. The high quality construction makes this the ideal belt for me with all the activities I do. It's also the perfect belt for concealed and open carry.
When I return home, I will give away all but two of my leather belts to used for more business/formal wear. Otherwise, I'll use my two operator belts, exclusively. Well done 5.11.
Awesome belt! Simple and tough. Wearing it everyday.
great belt, other than the velco. specifically the hook side of it. velcro closure is worn out after about 8-9 months of use. fix this issue and i'd rate it 5*
Believe it or not this belt is so strong ive pulled car out of the snow! ive been in a few situations where i had no D-ring shackle or anything to hook my strap to on a car. so i improvised and used my belt to hook the strap to the car! Was skeptical at first but each situation it was snowing sideways and had no other choice. Awesome gun and survival belt.
I love this belt I bought it 6 months ago and it's everything i was hoping it would be. It fits snug which is great for carrying radios on. I work in EMS and I definitely recommend it for any first responders.
Every belt I've own in the past 5 years has stretched out and become loose, worn and useless for carrying a holstered handgun. This one stays in place and doesn't deform or stretch out of shape.
Great belt. Needs better paint on buckle. Several EMS at my service have this belt and black paint comes off pretty fast.
I love this product. Not only have I used it as a belt, but it also finds use in other situations. For example, I have used the belt as an improvised tourniquet during a mock amputation.
It feels like it is constructed solidly, and will last me a long time.
I have worn this belt for several years in outdoor, wilderness, environments. Belt has held up extremely well. The Velcro not so much. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
