Customer Review

on June 25, 2010
Having owned several "travel" belts, this is my new favorite. It doesn't sport any spiffy features ... no hidden money compartment or anything like that. It does one and one thing only ... it's a belt. Having said that, though, this belt has three features that all the others do not:

1) Extremely Sturdy Plastic Buckle: A plastic buckle means you're breezing through the airport metal detectors without having to take it off. Usually, plastic buckles leave something to be desired, but this one is great. It's a tension buckle, so you thread the belt through -- you get the gist by looking at the picture I'm sure. I find this much better than the "fold-over" style of buckle that vendors like Eagle Creek use because it tends to wear out pretty quickly. This belt has a sturdy plastic buckle with no moving parts and, hence, nothing to wear out.

2) Doubles as a Compression Strap: If you find yourself needing to secure some piece of gear on the move, no problem. This belt would work perfectly (and has) as a makeshift compression strap, clothesline, etc. Normal belts with teeth or cheap plastic buckles leave you worried that your gear will come loose, but not this belt. It's not going anywhere.

3) 1.5 Inch Nylon Belt: I saved this for last, but it's soooo important. Most nylon travel belts on the market have a 1-inch nylon belt. In my experience, that's not wide enough. Things that you clip to your belt (like your cell phone) tend to rattle around and thin belts tend to slide around in the belt-loops. You end up looking and feeling silly. A 1.5-inch belt solves ALL of those problems. Gear stays put and it feels like a real belt.

My only quibble with this belt is that it tends to come a bit longer than you'd expect for the size you ordered. Of course, that's better than being too short. If you're on the small size of a size range, though, you might want to consider getting one size smaller. Otherwise, the belt is Nylon, so you can just cut off the excess length and burn the end with a lighter to keep it from fraying.
