Laser cut from aerospace grade aluminum and formed with a slight bend, the buckle produces an extremely comfortable fit.

This is a really great product. My only real complaint is minor, and definitely not a deal breaker. That issue is the nylon webbing; it’s a bit stiff and can rub if your belt rides up and gets a tick over your waistline when sitting. A slightly smoother/softer nylon would have made it a 5 star for sure, but it isn’t so much of an issue to turn away from a fantastic product. Maybe over time it will soften a bit. I have other nylon belts (like the Wilderness tactical, for example) which have a bit softer nylon that don’t exhibit that behavior.Where this belt shines for sure is exactly why one is looking for this type of product. It’s excellent for travel and makes it much easier to roll through metal detectors without having to remove your belt. Whether an airport, arena, sporting event, whatever.

This simple does what a belt should do. Keeps your pants up, does loosen, and never pinches the gut. What more could one ask for? I bought a normal metal one at first. It was so nice that two days later when their targeted adds tracked me down and I saw there was a carbon fiber version where I wont need to take off my belt when going through security I knew what I had to do. Return the first? Nope, give it to my brother for his guts well being and buy myself a carbon fiber one. Now i sit here contemplating if I should buy a whole set.

I bought this Carbon Fiber belt specifically for use while traveling. Since I’m flying 6 times a week I just wanted one less TSA hassle. Having a non-metal belt would be great for passing through the metal detectors. Unfortunately this belt by design would not stay tight which ended up being worse than just dealing with removing my belt at the check points. I really think this company is on to something good but needs to come up with a way to keep the belt tightly fitted.
The price is absurd. When I received the package, I thought this must be a promotional giveaway. It looks like it should be $9 not $90! It is awkward to put on as it is supposed to work with friction by looping the end of the belt under itself. There is no way to easily pull it closed snugly as in order to set it tight, you have to get your fingers between the belt and your waist, maneuvering underneath the belt, around the belt loops of your trousers.You really should have a butler to help you dress with this belt. I tried wearing it twice but sadly, a third attempt will not be a charm. Unloved, it will not be missed and since Amazon makes it easy to return, back it will go.

I love this belt. It’s thin, and doesn’t cause any irritation (the massive belt buckles that a lot of companies think men want tend to cut into you when you sit down). It’s also very useful to be able to adjust it to any length, rather than having precut holes with set waist lengths. This is probably the most comfortable belt I’ve ever used.Is it worth $90? Probably not… But I wanted the carbon fiber one, the others are less. I feel the materials used would cost maybe $10 if you made it yourself, but it’s the same with any clothing you might buy really.Overall I’m very pleased with it, I feel it’ll last forever (because of the materials used), and it’s the most comfortable belt I’ve ever used. I’ll probably buy some of the other designs in the future.

If you are a bit overweight, the torture is adjusting the fit. Bad construction when it comes to adjusting the fit. I returned it promptly and will never look at such a pain in the b_t mistake I made in buying. Thank god I returned it. It also is way above price that fooled me in thinking, “well they cost is high so it must be a good one. I was totaly wrong.

I have been trying to find a belt that I could wear through Airports (TSA), granted it may now be a while before I fly again, and they may make you take it off anyway, but something synthetic, no metal. Also, something for hiking, that would not mind getting wet, if it rained or you had to ford something deep. I have found some others that worked reasonably well, but the GRIP6 Carbon Fiber belt seems to be better than anything else I have run into. It is a bit tricky to learn how to cinch in properly, but once you figure it out, you can set it to wherever you want, and it generally stays quite well, does not slip or stretch. Might take a bit longer to undo, going to the rest room, but the trick is just to uncinch it a few inches, not all of the way. What I find with leather belts is that when you go to climates with a lot of humidity, they tend to stretch out some, and you are always chasing which hole to use. And most leather belts do not like getting wet. Now, the Carbon Fiber versions of the GRIP6 belt does cost a lot, I am not sure why, but if you look at it in the context of a good leather belt, somewhat comparable, and the aluminum belt version is considerably cheaper. Generally the GRIP6 does not produce a belt buckle budge, if you wear a shirt untucked over it, so that is another plus. Just order the normal belt size, they leave plenty of extra, no need to up-size. Some competitors would be the Arcade belt (that is cheaper, more stretchy, but also lays flat), Bill Adler (hard to find, stretch, does not lay as flat), Bison (non-stretch, not as flat) and 5.11 (same).
I already own two Grip6 belts, so i’m a fan. For $90, I had high expectations for this carbon fiber version. Unfortunately i received a used belt. I knew right away it was used because as soon as i opened the box i noticed it did not have that plastic covering it’s supposed to have. I’ve seen several unboxing videos where they show the there’s a clear plastic covering on the new belt. I could’ve gotten over that but upon further inspecting i noticed scratches as you can see on the picture. For the price, this is unacceptable.
Update- Well I’m still having problems with the belt not staying tight every time I bend over or sit down the buckle loosens an I have to keep tightening all the time so I’m not sure that it’s really made for bigger people..Well when I got the belt I had some issues with me being an bigger person every time I bent over or sat down the belt would come undone so I contacted the seller an in no time they sent me a replacement belt an it works perfect I love it
I havre a couple of nice leather gun-belts, but they are too long as have lost quite a bit of weight. Same for my Galco Instructors belt, just too long now. Wanted something cost effective that could serve for every day carry and occasional range use. This belt is great. It feels good, looks good and appears to be very well made. My iWB and OWB holsters ride well with it.I like it!

I really like ratchet belts, and I had other brands in the past, that didn’t hold up well. So I was on a mission to find a good solid ratchet belt that will last, can be set very tight when needed (think tool belt or holster), will not slip. This belt is all of that. The ratchet mechanism is beefy, and the belt itself is entirely uniform, both sides, end to end. So if it ever does wear, you’ve got options to flip it around, trim length etc. I’d describe as a military or police style belt, thick, tightly woven. The ratchet does not slip. This belt is perfect for jeans and should also work well with a holster, toolbelt etc.

While I don’t have a tremendous gut, I’d be remiss to dismiss it as nothing. That being said, I really wanted to love this belt. It’s design is perfect for what I wanted.Or so I thought..I work in a warehouse environment, stocking product from pallets to shelving. This requires frequent bending at the waist, and I have come to find that bending over will trigger the belt release.I carry a flask of coffee in my back pocket (overnight workers of the world, unite!), a radio, a company phone, pens, keys, etc.. My shorts are loaded with weight. When i trigger this release, my shorts immediately sag. I have to re-tighten this belt constantly throughout the day.Now, if you are not performing actions such as this on a regular basis, you will likely not notice this flaw. The belt is great as a standard-wear.. I just wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for active work.
The position and nature of the latch release is such that if you are a little overweight or heavier the latch release will keep unlatching the belt frequently enough to totally defeat the purpose of wearing this belt in the first place. So I’d give it 0 stars in design if you are overweight (I did an Amazon return of it). That said, the design of the belt looks good and I’m reasonably certain that the latch release trigger mechanism would stay locked on a lean, slender individual and would probably deserve 4 or more stars in that setting. But since a belt should stay cinched for all users of the belt (that’s kind of the whole point) and this one constantly released on me, I’ll give it a 2 star rating.

From a durability standpoint this belt is mighty tough. I got this belt since it isn’t overly dressy but it still looks nice with a pair of chinos or golf pants. The ratchet makes it easy for me to adjust the tightness and to loosen it without having to “unbuckle” the belt.The gun metal frame of the belt adds a nice urban look to the belt as it contrasts with the grey nylon.
You better not be in a hurry to use the restroom. The latch is a little lever that releases the belt to take off your pants, is extremely difficult to release.. people with cuts on fingers or arthritis hands or even a sprained wrist will have a very difficult time unbuckling. Belt seems well built and sturdy but buckle has a bad design. I wonder if this is China’s way of selling us stuff that looks good on us but makes us crap in our pants cause they don’t work. I say put one of these belts on one of their guys feed em a big meal see if they are Houdini’s that can slip out of their pants and not poop on themselves like I did wearing this belt…Juan from Mission TX
