This is the second one of these I have purchased and could not be happier with them. After 3 years of nearly daily wear there was no signs of separation or degradation in my previous belt. The only reason I had to replace it was that I loaned the belt to a friend who liked it so much they did not want to give it back.
ProsNO METAL!!!, passes through airport security with no problem. Near perfect width, fits 90% of belt loops. Decently rigid, belt does not curl under the weight of a holster and is stiff enough to do one handed drills.
ConsOne small con, if worn black side out, where the black and tan materials are stitched together tends to catch in the first belt loop. A very minor annoyance

Not bad for everyday wear.
The end of the belt doesn't have velcro. That's the only complain and reason for 4 stars.
ProsTwo tone colors.
ConsNo velcro at the end of the belt

This belt is rigid and supports a holster very well. It also has a plastic fastener, so you can go through airport security without removing it.
ProsRigid, sized right, airport security friendly

Great heavy-duty alternative to leather
I am really impressed by this belt. It is the first non-leather belt I've had that is actually strong and solid enough to support a holster. Being reversible means it will work with any attire. Very happy with it. One suggestion, though: when determining the size you need, go to the next size up over what your pant size is, NOT your actual pant size. If you wear 36-38 pants, buy the XL belt. If you are in the 38-40 range (like me), buy the 2XL. The XL belt works fine, but I'd rather have extra.

I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet but it feels solid and definitely don't suspect it will sag due to holster etc.

Wanted to like it.
I really wanted to like this belt. Initial impressions were positive. It's a double layer reversible version of the 5.11 standard belt. The two layers make it stiffer, which is a good thing. The problem comes when you have to try and really cinch it down. Because of the reversible buckle it is really difficult to get this belt tight enough to properly hold just a gun and mags. I imagine it would be even tougher with more gear. I love 5.11 stuff, but this one flopped.
ConsBuckle makes tightening tough

Nice CCW belt
This is my second 5.11 belt. This one has the plastic buckle which is pretty for going thru security gates. It's very firm and love how it's reversible. If ever needed will purchase again.

I am a large guy and to say this belt holds up to the task is an under statement. I would and already have recommended this belt to others.

Not the best
Its really stiff which is fine, but it doesn't allow the belt to be as tight as a traditional belt. It's also so stuff its hard to feed through the buckle
Pros2 color, well built good material with plenty of extra stiching
Constoo stiff, can't get tight and runs small

Has anyone tried or used this as an inner belt for a duty rig? Outer gear is Bianchi nylon.
This belt has a buckle that stands out and is not comfortable under a duty holster.

How am I supposed to tighten this thing up???
I had a hard time getting it to tighten properly at first also. The best way that i have found to do it is to push the slack into the buckle from the side you feed into the buckle. Then pull tight from the end of the buckle. You have to do this a few times to get the fit just right. Kind of a pain, but it has never loosened up on me.

pull tight and hold and put the other end in buckle ,breathe normally and hold your breath for two minutes and you will love this belt for life!!!

You loop it through as shown in the pic, then loop the tail through the buckle where the little tab sticks out. The buckle grabs the belt and holds it quite well.
on April 11, 2017
Hold the buckle, slip it through like an inch worm....push it in, then push the slack through the second part, while maintaining the hold on the buckle. The great thing is that it won't slip loose on you. It is tight as can be, and holds it.

If I order way bigger, can it be trimmed?
It can but the cut end may fray
on October 13, 2016
Yes this can be trimmed, but I would suggest you melt the cut ends to keep it from fraying just like whipping rope.

You get a lot of questions on which size to order and the answers you provide are not helpful, as they repeat what is in the size chart. It would be very helpful if you also provided the actual length of the belt. In other words a size L belt is xx inches. By providing the length customers on-the-line would be able to easily determine whether to up or down a size. Thanks
I personally pulled every size we have on these out and measured them from belt tip to buckle tip and here are my results - Small - 38 inches Medium - 42 inches Large - 46 inches XLarge - 50 inches 2XLarge - 54 inches 3XLarge - 58 inches 4XLarge - 61.5 inches I hope that helps!
on June 30, 2015
The large belt is most definitely NOT 46". I used this answer from customer service to purchase mine. Ended up with a belt that doesnt fit & too much of a hassle to return and exchange.

42 inch waist, what size?
For a 42" waist you will want to purchase a size XL which is for waist sizes 40-42.
on July 3, 2013
For a 42 inch waist, the XL belt will not fit at all. Get the 2XL, or even the 3XL. I wear 38 or 40 waist pants, and the XL is just barely large enough.
