Been with me for a few years and through 3 diffrent jobs. Velcro stands up great, collects lint sometimes but not an issue. Buckle is great, paint has only chipped in a few places but still looks great. Only issue I have is on the velcro side the last 7 inches of the belt the lower end has frayed on the bottom. Just have to cut and singe the ends so the fraying doesn't continue. Ordering a new one and I hope to get just as much use out of it as the current one. Thank you 5.11 for making a quality product and keeping my pants up through out the years.
Fits great and doesn't dig in to your sides
Perfect quality no more no less. Double strap construction is absolutely dependable and looks more durable than tow-line of my car. )
My physical waist size is 35 inches / 89 cm if you don't have a plans to carry anything like your gun under the belt it's looks a little bit longer than necessary, if the belt tighted the Velcro doesn't reach to buckle around 1 or 1,5 inches. At least I'm planing to buy next belt on size M.
Construction don't allow you to unbuckle it fast but I think it is not a very important for pant belt.
Thanks to this belt I'm alive, I being using this belt since 2014 and this week a criminal atack me with a .22 gun and he shot me at close range.
This amazing belt crush the bullet and stop most of the fragments, I'm really thankful with that purchase 3 years ago.
Great quality product.
I usually wear a large size in belts. However, given the advice of some of the earlier reviews I ordered an extra large.
When I went to try it out on a new pair of 5.11 pants, the belt was too big. The overlapping velco interfered with the belt loops of my holster. So I am returning it for a size smaller, i.e., a large.
IMHO, using the next larger size advice did not work. For some people this advice was spot-on, but it didn't apply to my situation.
5.11 customer service has been excellent! They seem to understand the problem and provided a RAN without any questions.
I needed an everyday best that would support an IWB holster and not loosen. With CCW you need a proper belt and holster. Everyone seems to think you need a tiny gun but NO. Don't kid yourself. This is the proper belt. I use it with a Hidden Hybrid with two polymer J clips. It tightens up, velcros secure. No problems with carrying. Love the belt
I wear size 40 jeans and ordered the XL (40-42) belt and it fits perfectly with 5" that goes past the 1st belt loop.
At the bottom of the product page they warn that these run small and I would have to agree. This belt size is perfect for jean size 38-40. If you wear 42 jeans, then order the XXL.
The buckle tightens up nicely and the belt is thick. I prefer the trainer model as it is 1.5" wide and easier to fish through belt loops. I ordered the charcoal color with the satin finish buckle and it looks sharp. You could wear this with khakis and it would look more professional than the all black version.
Took 5 days for delivery.
I bought this at a local retailer 4 years ago because I wanted something better for CCW. I didn't expect for it to hold up like it did. I carry every day, and was amazed at the fact that this belt lasted 4 years. In fairness I could still wear it but the velcro is starting to wear out and I wanted to try one of the cobra buckles. Not much more you can want out of a belt.
I have one of these belts that i wear everyday, and have been for 2 years now. 5 STARS!!!
BUT living in Alaska i would like bigger sizes for winter competition shooting. Wearing Bibs or a one piece jumpsuit, in the winter time is a must to stay warm when it gets to below 0 with a wind chill. I have made do by getting to belts and placing them together. but would really like bigger sizes.
ive had this belt for a few years and it is as strong as the day i bought it
