Levis friendly


From Frank


I have worn this belt for three years to work everyday. The end will eventually wear and is easy to cut and light burn/seal. The belt doubled fits under plastic suspender hooks (barely) but will fit and not break them. I recommend this belt, it NEVER loosens, stretches, folds, side fray, fade, or lets me down.

Great but....


From Mateo


I've had this belt for a couple weeks now & I really like it but I just wish I had gone a size up. I wear a 36 so I ordered a Large (36-38) & it fits but just bearly.. I recommend everyone go a size up because you can always cut it if you need to.

Great belt but pricey.


From David


Difficult to tighten sometimes
Good features outweigh the bad. Wish it came in a dark blue or Air Force blue

Love it


From Jacob


This belt saves lives..... and keeps your pants where they belong,!)

Best Belt That I've ever owned


From Bill

from New Jersey

This is by far the best and most comfortable that I've ever owned.

Great for airport security


From Prepperman

from Upper Midwest

Great for airport security, don't need to take it off for metal detectors, does not stretch or go out of condition, have worn one everyday for a year, and is still like new. I have ordered more belts for good in different colors

TDU Belt - 1.5"" Plastic Buckle by 511 T

Good all around belt


From Tony

from TX

I have to pass through multiple detectors every day for work, so this was perfect for me. The end did begin to fray after about 6 months of everyday use, but 2 seconds and a lighter fixed that.

TDU Belt


From B

from New Mexico

I have to go through a metal detector several times a day where I work. This is one less item I have to take off & put back on (Plastic Buckle).

511 Tactical: Please fix the Size Button on the order site/page. I probably could have used a medium but couldn't figure out what size belt went to my waist size. No problem though, I will cut this one down & sear the material to prevent freying.

hard to tighten up, sized too short


From Terry

from Melbourne FL

I'm a 37" waist. I bought a 36-38. Belt is too short to get a good grip on to tighten it up. Is there a trick for tightening?
