These are simaler to the belts sold at any PX/BX the sta bright buckles look great but the scratch easy, i recommend the cotton web belt with this buckle.
Not so great for heavy loads
I've had this belt and buckle set for a few months now. On the plus side, it looks sharp, and works well with light loads. On the negative side, the roller bar has a tendency to slip and let the belt loosen when wearing cargo pants filled with lots of equipment. It drives me nuts. I think the belt webbing may be a bit too thin for the design of buckle.
The buckle also has a tendency to lose some of its color after a while, and develop a silvery finish on areas of high wear. Still shiny though.
The web belt has always been the best type of belt. It may not look as flashy as all the other types, but it fits and is easy to use. They come in a wide variety of colors for both the belt and the buckle, all for different uniforms and the like. There is quite possibly no other better belt than this.
