    Well I have finally trimmed the belt down to my liking; and wore it a bit. Very interesting mechanism for the buckle. I think I like it.

    It does seem "cheap" in material, compared to the leather Bullhide steel insert gunbelt I was wearing though. maybe I just have to get used to it. It's not made of natural material, ie: leather, but rather a stiff plastic of sorts overlayed with a tight nylon weave.

    It's a bitch to cut through initially for trimming down to size, until I discovered using a sharp but heavy knife on a kitchen cutting board.

    So I shall wear it tomorrow all day.

    Once concern that I do have, is the resilience of the nylon covering due to abrasion. I do abuse my belts while wearing them, crawling around
    prone sometimes on rough surfaces. I'm not sure how well it will hold up to this abrasion that my leather belts endure.

    I do find it's easier to take a leak wearing the Nexbelt. No more fooling around with unthreading's and rethreading a traditional buckle. :thumbsup:

    Simply loosen the belt and go through the throes of dealing with the fasteners on your front pants. Reverse that process and simply cinch the Nexbelt back to the required tension.

    I'm sure I'll regret this... but why do you need to take your belt off to pee? You were Army right? I could understand if you were Air Force and needed to sit down...:D

    Curious to hear your updates on this belt. I have a Kore leather belt and like it quite a bit. I was considering getting a nylon belt for more casual wear, but you raise a good point about abrasion resistance.

    I’ve daily worn mine for over a year. I wear it hiking, shooting, to work every day. No significant wear.

    I don’t take mine off/loosen it to pee.

    Ha! Maybe T.M.I. but I always have fully unbuckled when taking a leak. Just more comfortable doing so, than trying to hand wrangle the Big Johnson out into the open…

    I have their EDC model and rock the buckle to the side. I also have a KORE belt and it is superior, considering the footprint of the buckle.
