I ordered a cordovan belt. Real cordovan has a reddish hue, the belt I received was brown. Cheaply made belt. I am very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 Somewhat disappointing
Not supple enough even after several wearings. Also, top surface already has a small tear at third hole (the one being used).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Henr Looks nice, but not premium leather
This belt does look nice, but after a year of moderate use (a couple times a week), the "leather" shows signs of cracking/splintering. It must be some type of bonded or bicast leather. LL Bean does a disservice to its customer base in calling this full-grain leather as that is very misleading and below the standards for other products I have purchased from them.

First order was too large had to reorder. The turn around was very fast, the product is excellent quality. ll Bean has excellent items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ExiledJedi Leather is too stiff, ripples along holes
This belt looks good, but the leather was far too stiff, and difficult to buckle as a result. After a few days of wear, I noticed that the leather was rippling where the holes are, and it now looks terrible up close.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NEWSKI TOO LONG
ALTHOUGH THE LEATHER IS OF GOOD QUALITY, THE LENGTH OF THE BELT IS EXCESSIVE. I ORDERED BOTH A BROWN AND BLACK BELT, BOTH SIZE 36 SINCE I WEAR SIZE 35 INCH LL..BEAN DRESS KHAKIS. THE BELTS, ALTHOUGH MARKED SIZE 36 WERE ACTUALLY 46 INCHES IN LENGTH, EXACTLY THE LENGTH OF MY OLDER 38 INCH BELTS.. NEEDLESS TO SAY, NOT WISHING TO USE THE LAST HOLE ON A BRAND NEW BELT, I AM RETURNING THESE SIZE 36 BELTS FOR A SHORTER SIZE..

Rated 2 out of 5 by NebSteve Too stiff
I'm a big fan of LL, but this product is okay. I was expecting nicer leather. It has been so heavily processed that is almost feel plastic like. Maybe this will enable it to last longer, but for the price I think the leather should have been softer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tony15230 excellent mid priced belt
Ive purchased similar belt in past so perhaps biased.
All good, fits as expected, last one lasted much longer than other brand, for the price hard to beat.
My waist is closer to 33, bought 34 belt, rather have a little large than small. satisfied so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TCNJ Rippling Leather
The leather ripples along the buckling holes. I expected it, as with other genuine leather items, to remain smooth and supple. For the price, the belt is mediocre.
