Four stars for this duty belt based largely on the value you get. Inner velcro pant belt and duty belt PLUS the four keepers to make it all snug? For around $50??? Unheard of value.
The belt itself is as nice as any other nylon duty belt. The 2.25 is about the same size as a traditional leather duty belt, but being a bit thicker, the gear that feeds on to it tends to be a bit tighter on the belt, so get your sweat glands ready to yank that gear into just the place you like having it...
I have no doubt that long-term wear will produce the same fraying that most nylon duty belts produce after a period of hard wear, but I'm not too upset about this. Mainly because I can buy a complete new kit at such a low price.
My only knock is the SIZING: I followed the directions and I normally wear a size 32 pant waist. Well, the size Medium arrived and when tugged down to the absolute minimum size it was still about a 34 at best, so I had to go with a Small instead. There was simply no way to make that Medium any smaller than that.
