      Coming in at 17-18oz, this is one rugged, beefy belt that will last a lifetime. No splitting, cracking or peeling apart ever with a Hanks Belt.

    Finally a belt that stands up.

    This is an outstanding belt. I’ll definitely order more for family gifts.

    I am admittedly a review mooch...relying for years on the guinea pigs of the world to ensure solid purchases of my own while rarely contributing anything useful back to the e-commerce society. I couldn't in good conscience withhold my feelings on this one. I'll elaborate some below for those who care......but, in short, JUST ORDER THE BELT and know that you will be at least 100% satisfied. You know that feeling when you order the mouthwatering burger because of what it looked like for the corporate photo shoot, and then you get it and it doesn't even seem to visually resemble the photo and tastes even worse? Yeah, this isn't that experience. I'm even happier than anticipated with the looks, feel and function of this belt. I needed a new belt for stylish casual wear that was also functional for CCW. The thing is STOUT! It's like having a kydex/steel-reinforced belt but with way more character than any kydex/steel-reinforced option out on the market. Considering how sturdy this thing is, I find it funny that Hanks bothers with a reinforced line, but I suppose they'll save some folks $20 or $30 and may be slightly lower profile. But if you want a belt with a bit more character (I got the brown, which is beautiful) that can still, very securely and comfortably, hold two pounds of polymer, steel and brass, go with this Montana Bison or the Old World Harness. Hanks customer for life.

    Best belt ever

    I use this belt for CCW and daily use and I never felt a better belt In my life, and I’m in my 50’s. This belt is strong enough to possibly pull a car and soft enough to take the shape of your waist. The quality of this belt is superb in every sense of the word. Im buying me a second one, why?, because I want to and because this belt is so damn good!!!

    Best Belt Ever.

    Seriously. Hands down. Nothing even comes close to this quality. It’s so thick, yet soft, that your body heat makes it form to your body. If you own one, you know exactly what I’m talking about. So comfortable! Highly recommend!
