Great Belt. One small issue.


From Mitch


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.

Produit sympathique... MAIS !?


From Steven


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.

Thank you.

Only useful purpose I have found is passing through metal detectors


From RD


This belt is impossible to tighten sufficiently, I would not recommend it to anyone.

Difficult to Tighten


From Cliffster


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.

Great Belt all around


From Jay

I work at a federal facility that requires going through metal detectors, this belt is essential in clearing security in a timely manner. I've had other belts but they do not last due to their design. 511 tactical belt is simple but very functional.

Great belt


From Isaac the Instructor

from Around Madison, WI

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.

The TDU Belt, Plastic Buckle Tactical


From Charlie

from Davie, FL, USA

This belt is exactly what I ordered. Very pleased. Thankyou. Charlie

Better than any leather belt


From MarineCop

from Chicago, IL

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.

Awesome belt.


From Glenn

from Fulton MO

Very lightweight and rugged enough to support a holster.

It was what I ordered.


From Top

from Bryan, TX

I am a US Army retiree, and use this belt daily. I've used them in the field as uniform belts and can say, that perform as advertised.
