Belt looks nice and holds up pants but the material is soft and curls rather than remaining flat when tightened.It also bothered me at first when I noticed that there is a hole where the pants button is when the belt is tightened but that's not really a big deal. I just wanted to call attention to it because it didn't seem obvious when I ordered.
Very noble of mountain hardwear to make this pretty dang cool belt out of recycled polyester. Now hippies like me can look cool and still claim to save the earth! For east coasters that doesn't mean we throw this in our compost pile when it either breaks or goes out of style.
