Rated 4 out of 5 by Mervich Men?s Chino Belt with Money Zip
I already have the previous version of this belt?circa 2011 or 2012. It has held up beautifully?hardly shows any wear. Decided I probably need another and received the current version. It is still a very nice belt, although not quite the level of quality of the previous version?not quite as thick or stiff, and has a slightly different buckle. The total length of the new belt is one inch longer than the previous one?the old one buckles in the 2nd hole from the end, while the new one buckles in the 3rd or middle hole. Measurement from the 1st hole to the tail end is the same on both. The chocolate brown is the same, even though the belts appear to be from different vendors. These full grain leather belts are versatile and go with just about anything?chinos, jeans, shorts, even dress pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dexter06 Perfect fit
This is the first belt that I have owned with a secret money pocket.
I was surprised at how large the pocket was and how much money it would hold. The belt was a perfect fit and the color was exactly as in the picture. I could not have been more satisfied with the belt.

Simple security in a well made belt. Sizing seems to be "right on" and the quality is typical L.L. Bean!!! Highly recommended!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darbinsky Quality of leather
I have been buying money belts from LL Bean for decades, for travel abroad. I like them very much, but the new ones are much lighter because the leather is significantly thinner. I have an older one next to my new one and it is easy to see. I am certain it will be sevriceable, but it is a cheaper but not less expensive belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by karenbc Ordered a size up
This belt replaces an identical 25 year old LL Bean money belt in a larger size.
My husband lost weight and now has a 36" waist, so, as recommended, we ordered the 36. When the belt arrived, my husband needed the last hole, so we exchanged the belt for a 38. He uses the middle hole on the 38, but said that he could easily use the next hole in #if he wasn't opting for comfort#.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheRealMcCoy Just what I wanted.
It's a classy looking belt; you would never know it is anything but a good belt, which is the idea. I plan to pick up a brown one (I got a black one) now that I know it's what I want. The sizing advice is to buy your pants size. I wear a 34 waist pants, but a 36 belt (from LL Bean), so I ordered the 36 inch size. I should have gone with the 34, though the 36 works, just not in the middle hole. So far there are no signs of stretching or of the finish wearing at the buckle (I have had that problem with belts from another company.) All in all, I am extremely pleased. Oh, it is a bit difficult to get the money into the zippered compartment. You need to fold the bill into thirds and insert it at the middle of the compartment, then slide it to the ends to make room for more. It will hold a good number of bills.

Great quality leather and a must when traveling. Beats the under the shirt waist band type money belt. Easily holds 7-8 folded bills.Good quality as usual from LLB.
