I thought the belt would be like tightening my belt buckle on my ABU's. This is not the case at all. Crazy annoying to tighten and adjust. Maybe I'll try a different model sometime, but a little weary. I use them with my Stryke pants, but might go with my issued belt instead. I just preferred the black.
Awesome belt. I love it.
very high quality material
I have the 5.11 1.5" Double Duty belt in coyote. Accidentally ordered a size too small, to my waist size. I just got the black version of this belt today. I love it! One minor issue: when I went to put the belt on, the coloring started coming off immediately. I'm hoping I just got a faulty one and it won't be an issue in the future.
I bought this product in Marseille at COP13.
The exterior of the product looks really good. Very strong materiel, and the plastic buckle is great quality.
However I have a problem.... the tightening is really complicated!
It's not practical at all to tighten this belt.
Indeed the video shows this all as very simple, but in reality, it's not.
This belt is impossible to tighten sufficiently, I would not recommend it to anyone.
Based on the reviews I thought this would be a good pick. I'm a 30" waist so I ordered the 30-32" size. After trying it on, I found it difficult to tighten it because of the awkward, buldging buckle. Still haven't figured out the best way to make a snug fit. Also, there's not enough extra belt to grab onto to pull it tight. I'd recommend getting the next size up from the size you'd usually order.
I bought one of these belts for on duty, liked it so much that I bought a second one to wear with my regular clothes.
This belt is exactly what I ordered. Very pleased. Thankyou. Charlie
I use the product everyday, works great. I wish it were just a bit thicker though, or that 5.11 would put the thickness of their belts on the page as well. It can "crush" when gripped with one hand.
That being said I don't notice any problems when putting my gear on it (Springfield .45XD and two extra mags), but I don't think I'd put anymore on it.
