I snatched up this belt when it first came out. Honestly, have you seen a cooler looking belt? I like it so much that I'm thinking about buying a second color.The belt itself works well, holding tight all day. Like others have said, it needs to be taken out of each belt loop when you take it out of a pair of pants or shorts, but an extra five seconds won't kill you.One thing: don't try to use the buckle as a bottle opener, even if it looks like it will work. I tried. The aluminum is a little too thin and can bend easily.
I was pleasantly surprised by how light this belt is. I have not had any trouble with the belt staying "hooked" together, my one complaint is that it is a little thinner than I would have liked but that's just being nit-picky. Overall a really great belt
I bought one of these belt recently hoping to be enthusiastic about it. But when I pulled it out of the package I was extremely disappointed. The belt is not as durable as I hoped and the webbing design seems less than Mountain Hardwear's quality. The second problem is the way it attaches. It is a poor design and hard to get through belt loops. Overall go with the Chaco belt. It is far superior.
The belt once on in all the loops of the pants is great! However the sliding it through each loop is very difficult. It does not simply slide through the loops and you can't just pull it all out when you want to take it off either, you have to move the belt by hand through each belt loop. Also the way it attaches is badly designed, it tends to slide off, so I had to use it upside down, so the opening on the buckle is facing up. However, it is very soft and lightweight, and once actually attached is a great belt! But I wouldn't get it if you are constantly going to have to remove the whole belt.
