It has been nearly a year and this belt, the Carhartt Men's Journeyman Belt, has shown little wear. In my experience, the leather gets a bit dry, but using mink oil 2-3 times a year solves this problem. This is not the fault of the belt, leather get dry. If anything, this is a testament to the belt being actual leather.
I highly recommend this belt, do not waste your money on a low quality belt.
Update 9/18/2012 : This belt is still going strong. After the first six months or so of minor stretching (half a size to maybe a size; no more than one hole on the belt) the belt has not stretched more. It has been nearly two years of daily wear and the belt is still holding together well. The areas where the belt has worn most have turned a light gray to brown in color. The belt is still thick, strong, and pliable after two years. This belt costs about twice what the local junk belts cost, but lasts at least 4 times as long. That is value.
UPDATE: 6 months later. The second one I ordered is clearly a bonded leather with a thin top layer. It has really stretched and on the inside of the belt you can now clearly see the little chopped and formed pieces of leather - contrary to what I indicated above. I guess you can't really tell until you get some use on it. At least I can't. The belt is really soft now and it feels like it's going to give way. As I read through the reviews, you can sure tell the fake reviews. It's almost like they get paid per review. Subject is usually "Five Stars" and then a three or four word review follows. Bottom line: there is no way this is a full grain bridle leather as indicated by the description. Mine has not fallen apart like others have reported in their reviews.
So is it worth the $30? Hindsight says probably not. But, it is about half the cost of a high quality, full-grain, legit belt made in the good ol' USA. It's your call.
Only time will tell if the new belt will last. The old belt still works and keeps my pants up, but it has years of wear, paint splotches, etc on it. I got the new one basically for appearances sake. The buckle is removable, the belt has snaps that can be opened. This allows changing the buckle - you can swap it out for your favorite trucker or cowboy belt buckle.
I have had to treat all of my Carhartt belts with various leather conditioners to get them more flexible and "softer". Not a problem, the leather is just thick and high quality and needs a little t.l.c. to make the belt the best that it can be.
I've had a carhartt belt for 2 years and it hasn't mushed or stretched, and it looks the same as the day I bought it. I expect this one to be the same.
It is a solid piece of leather, not "ground up pieces of leather glued together" with "artificial leather looking sticky." It is not stitched because it is a single slab. No need for stitching (the only stitching is to fasten the label - which I promptly cut off). The dye is fast. If the two snaps come undone, it is because the customer opened them and then didn't re-snap them properly. After years of heavy use there is no cracking of the finish or tearing. The sizing is accurate. Buying my "correct" size I buckle into the middle of the five holes. The only possible negative is the thickness and the width being to great for some belt loops, but I have not had a problem with any of my garments.
I use these for long distance mountain and desert hiking with light beige shorts. No color rubs off. I routinely carry heavy belt mounted camera gear, canteens, and other gear. The belt does not distort or stretch beyond the absolute minimum consistent with real leather. It may eventually take a slight amount of set where there is constant stress, such as over the buckle or where a pant belt loop bears heavily and continuously. After years of use, there is no distortion whatsoever of the buckle holes.
I have bought several of these because I hate having to swap belts from one garment to another. I don't expect to have to buy another belt for years - if ever.
