Rated 4 out of 5áby BigBore Pretty good but it could be better.
The belt is very nice looking and seems to be well made. I have worn it for two weeks so when it is taken on vacation it does not have the 'new money belt' look to it and the belt finish has held up very well with only slight elongation of the belt holed due to the buckle.
The first thing I noticed is it is sized larger than other same-sized belts I have. While my other 44 belts are at the center notch of five, this one is on the next to last smallest notch of five. Laid side by side to my other belts, the belt center notches do not line up making this belt more of a 45 instead of a 44. That's fine and not a big deal.
The next thing is that there is a leather tab that covers the zipper on the inside of the money belt. That makes threading the belt through the pant belt loops a bit of a pain since the leather tab keeps catching on the pants and once in position needs to be smoothed down in the proper direction. Taking the belt off is not a problem since the leather tab then lays flat. Last, after it has been worn a while, there is a bump on the outside of the belt which is visible from the outside and indicates there is a zipper on the back side. Who would notice it, nobody but a thief, the very person you are trying to hide your money from in the first place.
All in all it is a pretty good belt and the price was OK but it certainly has room for improvement.

The belt arrived on time and was exactly as the advertising promised. No complaints.
Unfortunately, they didn't leave me any money in the money-zip compartment. I was expecting a million dollars. Other than that, everything was fine.

This is the same type of belt I used for the past 40 years; it is durable, comfortable, practical and good looking.

I've been using this belt for years. I just lost some weight and bought a new one. Nice to have some cold cash available for emergencies -- particularly when traveling.

This is a first-class item, typical of the quality we have come to expect from L.L. Bean. It does not advertise its hidden cargo. It looks and feels like a regular belt.

Rated 4 out of 5áby CARP13 QUALITY BELT
THIS IS A REPLACEMENT I BOUGHT FOR THE "SAME" ITEM PURCHASED FROM LLBEAN IN 1997. MY ORIGINAL HAD STRETCHED AND WAS A SIZE LARGER THAN THIS ONE WHEN I BOUGHT IT (SO WAS I). THE ZIPPER PULL HAD BECOME TOO EVIDENT AS THE LEATHER SOFTENED. THIS FITS TRUE TO SIZE AND QUALITY IS EVIDENT. THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT I HAD WAS IN FINDING THAT THE ZIPPERED MONEY POUCH IS 1/4-1/3 SHORTER THAN THE OLDER ONE. ONLY LONG ENOUGH FOR 3 BILLS...5 HALF OVERALPPED. YOU COULD PROBABLY GET 9 BILLS 1/4 FOLDED AND TRIPLED AT MAX WITH OUT MAKING IT TOO STIFF OR THICK. THE OLDER MODEL COULD HOLD 15 BILLS (TRIPLED), 10 EASILY DOUBLED.

Just another example of top quality products offered by L.L.
Bean. This belt wasn't advertised with the width, so I called the help line and quickly found out it was 1 1/4 inches wide. Exactly what I wanted.
I'm always satisfied with everything I buy from L.L. Bean. They make sure of it!
