Damn good belt.
I have had this belt for a year now and love it. In fact I just ordered a second one of a different color today. It's a damn good belt. No issues with rusting or showing any signs of wear. I haven't had to test out its rescue capabilities yet and hope that I never do. However, I do trust that it would perform has expected.

Great fit and durable . Made in U.S.A.
It's a very nice piece of equipment. And not made elsewhere.
Have had it a few months now. Construction is superb. If you look closely enough the velcro is barely starting to showing signs of wear. Only the vaguest hints at rust on occasion, usually after fishing, on the buckle. Usually just wipe it off with my finger. Explicitly says 'MADE IN U.S.A.', maybe they used to be made in Vietnam but mine isn't. I see no reason I wouldn't get at least a couple or three decades of use out of it unless I wind up passing it down to a child.

I have had to replace this belt twice due to rust. The buckle begins to rust after a few months and has ruined several shirts. I end up having to scrub and oil it daily. Well constructed but the metal is so inferior that it's not worth the trouble.
I have finally been able to end my thirty plus year quest to find the perfect all around tactical belt. This belt truly is the best all around choice for military and civilian tactical use. The quality, design, materials, and workmanship are exemplary. It is extremely sturdy, comfortable, and fits through the belt loops on both BDU trousers, and casual jeans. It works very well for carrying a belt holstered handgun, is infinitely adjustable for size, and I would not be the least bit apprehensive about using it for an emergency rappel. I own this belt in several colors, and have used it extensively over the past ten years, without any problems at all. Two thumbs up Blackhawk!
Not made in the USA
I think its a good belt. However I was under the impression that I was purchasing a American Made Product. Well the belt I have has a Made in vietnam tag stiched to it. Becouse of that I fell it is worth only $20.00 or so. Justin Schwigen
Better than the better BDU belt
This is one tuff belt, solid to the touch, not to mention it works perfect as a last resort swiss seat. Blackhawk sets the standards once again.
