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 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.
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.
This belt is exactly what I ordered. Very pleased. Thankyou. Charlie
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.
Very lightweight and rugged enough to support a holster.
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.
Good value for a belt that should last a long time.
I use it on a daily basis, well worth the money.
Easy to order, and it fits well.
