Ok, buckle finish starts rubbing off fairly quick and leather cracks/bends after awhile as well
on September 23, 2014
I like the concept/design of the belt, but it just does not last long as any other belt out there in my opinion. The leather is on the small side, they should consider making the leather a little wider so it fits through jeans belt loops more securely. The buckle finish started to rub off in about 1 month of regular use which is disappointing They were nice enough to exchange it for a different style free of charge, but the same thing has began to happen to this one. I don't have a beer gut that is consistently rubbing over the buckle, maybe slightly when I sit and lean forward, but still for the price I would expect a finish that is flawless. I am not sure if this just happens on the gumtal colors or if it happens on all their buckles. The leather started to crack and bend at an angle and isn't really straight anymore. This happened after about 3 months of fairly regular use. Overall, it looks great but just does not last long. Not sure if I will buy again. I would like to try the full grain leather to see if they are indeed better quality and see if they can fix the finish rubbing off on the buckles after short use.
