Looks great but buckle always comes off belt
on November 4, 2013
This looks great. But there's one thing that really annoys me, enough that I'm going to find another belt. The buckle will not stay attached to the belt. Until this design flaw is fixed, I'd stay away from this belt.
If the belt is under tension (e.g. you are wearing it), it's fine. But once you remove this source of tension - say the belt is undone because you're trying to put it on or take it off — about 30% of the time, the buckle will fall off the belt, probably embarrassingly banging loudly on the floor. Hopefully you weren't near a toilet or urinal!
Other belts like this use a similar mechanism to attach the buckle, but require the belt and buckle to actually be pushed together for the teeth to disengage. But this one requires zero force - just the absence of tensile force. It's really annoying.
The only time this propensity for the buckle to come off is useful is during airport security queues. If you're a heavy traveller, maybe you'll like this! For everyone else, stay away.
