Honestly, this is by far the absolute best battle belt I've worn and used. I've had the RDR gear instructor belt, a Ferro concepts, an old duty belt and some padded war belt setups. This is the stiffest and slimmest belt out there, and it fuckin rocks! I'm not bashing the other brands but this belt kicks ass. Super slim, gear doesn't flop around when running or training. No odd pressure points, no chaffing. Just greatness. The lead times we're a little long and communication left some to be desired but the product more than makes up for it. 10/10 i definitely recommend it. It was more than worth the wait.
