Its by far the best belt i have ever owned! The buckle is also a convenient bottle opener and the strong polyester could be useful if you need a short rope. It's a bit pricey for a belt, but it's worth it and if you take care of it, it could be the only belt you ever need to buy.I have no complaints about this belt whatsoever! Great job, Patagonia!
Great beefy belt. The bottle opener works, just make sure you unfasten the belt and pull it out a bit before use or you'll look like you had a little accident. The nylon in the area that you fasten it at seems to show wear pretty quickly though.
