The integrated web loop is the only & primary flaw of this belt. It makes threading through belt loops difficult. For me, the web loop was not at all important, and as other reviewers noted, it was sewed on the wrong side of the belt (shouldn't the Velcro wrapped part be inboard? If it is then this loop also faces inboard). I simply snipped the web loop out and trimmed the nylon back close to stitching then singed with a lighter. Snipping that loop out of the equation makes this a great belt and fits my personal need - and now its worth the investment.
I've tried 4 other similar Digger's belts and ever one of them will eventually cut into my hip and/or get that little droop in the back. Not this belt! The curved design, wide webbing and amazing buckle let me sit in a car or chair all day long (with or without full year) and forget I'm wearing a sturdy "tactical" belt. Love it!
Looks like a good belt and the quality of materials is great but the fit and function is not there.. I bought it and tried it and I should have listened to the reviews. Not there yet.
Great quality and very convenient with the quick release clip, but in order to put in on you have to struggle squeezing the web loop through each belt loop one at a time. Once it's on, though, it's very sturdy and easy to unclip for bathroom breaks. A bit too expensive for the inconvenience of putting the belt on and taking it off, though.
This belt makes no sense. As a swat sniper and police officer for 28 years, I've seen my share of tactical belts. This one is nicely built but the loop isn't rated for emergency rapel so what's the point? The belt makes it nearly impossible to thread an OWB holster onto it and you have to put the belt on backward to thread it through your belt loops. Great belt in theory and workmanship. However it needs re-thought especially considering it cost $90.
What I really like about this belt is the fact that the velcroed standing end is on the left, weak(for me), female side. This enables me to simply unthread the strong, male, side from a couple of pant loops in order to rig something on the right side.
The problem is that the loop is also on the right side and will no way thread through an OWB holster. This means that I have to wear the belt backwards and remove the female buckle to thread through a holster. Of course, then you have to readjust the belt size and hassle weaving the hooks under the pant loops and over the loop material.
If only the loop were the metal variety on the female side. That would be ideal.
It was me go to belt for a specific pair of pants. The web loop makes it hard to take off each pair of pants, the metal buckle sets off every metal detector. I would love to see them make this buckle in an airport friendly material. If you have any kind of gut the buckle will jab into you and kinda hurt a little (which should motivate you to lose the gut).
Simply put Great idea, Not Great product.
The size runs Small Especially if you run a concealed pistol order one size larger.
The Belt is not rated for use as a emergency / hasty harness , so Operator beware.
Does not work with 5.11 or Vertex Pants
Due to design you must put it on backwards
So if you buy this belt don't expect to use it on multiple pants.
I got this belt yesterday, so far I'm very impressed. The build quality is outstanding. The belt is very stiff and rigid. Perfect for carrying a firearm or using with a battle belt. The cobra buckle is smooth and makes a lovable click sound. It makes me feel like batman clipping on his utility belt haha. I really love this belt . Some people may be concerned because the width of the belt is 1.75 inches and most of the 511 pants have a 1.5 inch belt loop. All I have to say is don't worry about it. I use this belt with my 511 strike pants and it works perfectly.
I use this belt daily. It is stiff, sturdy, and fast to fasten. Because I am a "lefty" my IWB kydex holster snaps on just between the caribiner loop and the 5.11 logo tab. Had I been righthanded, I doubt my holster belt clip at 1.75" would've snapped on d/t the doubled over Velcro to the right. Now I know these belts are tactical and are not intended for IWB (but rather OWB) but why not market to all carry groups? I'm happy with my purchase and believe the price is right for the quality of the belt but the cobra buckle sold me. The large size fits me with a 38 inch just below the waist but not on the hip measurement.
