I love everything about this belt, except for the sizing options. Why would you offer such limited sizes? S 28"-30", M 32"-34"

For proper fit, the velcro hook should fall in the middle of the velcro loop portion on the belt. This would allow adjustment in either direction, depending on whether you are using an IWB holster or not. With this in mind, optimal sizing for the small would be 29" and 33" for the medium. That's a 4" variance in sizing. That doesn't work for someone who falls in the middle of these size range.

Unfortunately, I fall in between size options. My current belt measures 31" from contact point on inside of buckle to current hole used.

With the small size, the velcro hook on the tale of the belt just makes contact with the velcro loop on the belt with no room for adjustment.
On the medium size belt, I have to tighten the belt to where the velcro loop part of the belt comes in contact with the buckle. The problem is the tale of the belt is so long it wraps around to the small of my back???

This can't be the first time you've heard this complaint. Unfortunately my only option is to return the belt and shop a competitor who offers 1" increments.

Many of the reviews here mention getting a size too large/small for them. Best bet; go to a store carrying belt and try it on. Allow for wearing gear over and/or under the belt in choosing the size best for you. If you get a belt too large you will not be able to tighten up enough around your waist and you will have a lot of extra belt hanging loose. Getting too small and you have problems as well. I am glad I tried on before buying as according to my waist measurement (1 in. below belly button and from the existing dress belt from end of buckle to the hole on belt I use most often) the 5.11 website sizing chart says buy large. I tried a large on and it would have been too big unless I was carrying an Inside-the-waist-band gun. I got the medium-size belt and we are good to go. The material of belt is important when range shooting in hot weather and one sweats a lot. Leather becomes too wet; soaking.

Why skip two inches in sizing?

I love this belt but have one big problem with the sizing. A large barely lets the velcro hook and an X-Large wraps around too much. I don't know why they are sized to skip a full two inches in between sizes. That leaves someone like me with a belt that barely fits or one that wraps too much. I think they should do maybe 36 - 40 and then 40 - 44 or something like that and make the large about an inch or two longer. Like I said great belt if you aren't in that two inch gap between their size. I had to send it back and get the next size to fit me correctly.

Have had belts from other manufacturers that were good but not quite as rugged as this one. Have used it many times in training and found it to be rugged and dependable. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a reliable and rugged belt.
