[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great belt. The leather is very good quality and is stitched, not glued. I wasn't sure about the ratchet buckle at first, but really like it. It works well and I think it will avoid the wear that you get in belt holes over time. It is also very comfortable. Word of advice- practice undoing it before you put on. I had trouble finding the release button the first time I wore it! Once I found it, it has been super simple.
I am going to buy one for my dad, who has arthritis, because I think that the ratchet buckle will be easier for him to use than the traditional buckle.
This is the first belt that I have bought where I had to cut it to length before attaching the buckle. I was nervous about this and kept cutting it too long until I read on the box that they guarantee that they will send a replacement belt if you make a mistake cutting it.
