1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't stay tight (update: broke in less than 3 months), July 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Columbia Men's Military Style Belt (Apparel)
I bought this after some stellar reviews about the belt staying tight. I'm a skinny guy with no hips and lots of gear in my pockets. A belt is required to keep my pants from falling down, and this one does not do the trick. For the first few weeks it seemed to work great, but now it slips loose almost immediately after tightening. I'm positively still pulling the metal bar piece as fully to the tight position as I can but the belt still slips through.

I think I'll try putting something on the inside of the buckle to add some more friction. Not sure what that would be yet.

Update 8/29/2013
After less than three months of use, I have lowered my review to one star from two. I didn't yet modify it as I intended to, to improve the friction. I didn't get the chance. I tightened it a few moments ago and the pin snapped in two. Broke in half and fell out. Kind of surprising when my pants started to fall down.

Have you contacted Columbia about the issue?

No, I never did contact them. I just chose another belt instead.
