Rated 1 out of 5áby MedicZod Don't waste your money
Worst belt I've ever owned. Literally quit working after one day. The two metal hooks are very weak, and straighten out, releasing the belt. And it's not like I'm hugely overweight or was cranking it down too tight, just moving around seems to stress them and cause them to bend. Every 5 minutes just walking around the grocery store it would release itself. Bend over- belt pops undone. Turn to the side, pops undone. The only thing this belt would work on is a store mannequin.

Rated 1 out of 5áby tarnsman Gun Sling Belt #TC281467
Received the L.L.Bean Gun Sling Belt Item TC281467 in good order. Nice, heavy duty leather. However the clasp is unacceptable. It is flimsy and bends out of shape easily. I have to re-bend the hooks to wear the belt. The belt is fine, but the buckle/clasp does not measure up to LL Bean standards.

Rated 2 out of 5áby BravoMayhem Buckle Issues
I really like the belt's leather and design, but the rivets on the buckle popped off during my second day using the belt, and the brass buckle component is pretty thin. I'm thinking of finding or making a more significant buckle for it, which is something the company really needs to do.

Rated 5 out of 5áby UplandGuide Great belt....
This is a great belt. Especially for those who handle fine guns as the buckle is all leather. Full adjustments. Nice looking. A-1

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sherman9 Super high quality
I am not sure what the other reviewers are talking about. This belt is nice thick leather. No its not a police or tactical outer belt. Its not meant to be. IT is a stout leather pants belt. The leather is of high quality. It feels like a gun sling from days gone by just as it says. I LOVE the clean look since the running end of the belt once buckled is under the belt so is not visible. I just wish they made it in black too! I plan to buy a second one and have a leathersmith dye it black for me.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LLBeanMarine Good for around the house but not in the field
I bought this belt to wear in the field while hunting/camping but found that the thickness and width of the belt will not support a side arm, extra magazine, and knife. It looks great and will work for wear around the house but I will not use it for hunting/camping. Also, the buckles are not very sturdy and started to bend. If you are looking for something to wear around the house or in town then this is your belt. If you are going to put any weight on the belt you need to shop around for a different design.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jskr classic cool
My husband wore his current gunslinger belt for many years. It finally started to look a little too broken in for dressier occasions (although it looks cooler in my opinion), so he requested a new one for Christmas. He'll be very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MorganK Good so far
I got this for my dad and so far he loves it. I got the small at first but exchanged it for a medium. I thought he was a 34in waist but hes actually a 36 and the medium fits him great.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LesP Belt sizing
I purchased the belt because it came in xl-xxl. Now I am a 44 waist and the belt is at the next to last notch. I am not sure that it was made for my size or if it was mis-marked. The quality is great it just the sizing that is in question.

Rated 4 out of 5áby mrtallyman Gun Sling Belt - It's More Than That
I'm a gun enthusiast and a guitarist - although not usually at the same time. Just as this belt eliminates scratches on gunstocks it eliminates scratches on the backs of guitars. I'm all about multipurpose products. So I wear it when I hunt and when I play the guitar.
As noted in other reviews, the belt is inaccurately sized. Order a size larger than you admit to being and it will fit fine. I returned one and ordered up a size myself.
I have had no trouble with the hardware. Perhaps the inaccurate sizing issue may have something to do with the bent tabs others have experienced. Now that I am wearing the proper size, I do not expect the tabs to bend. They fit well in the holes and grip tightly. If they do bend or fail in some other way I will send it back. In my experience LLB stands behind their products.
The belt is comfortable. It is wide enough and substantial enough to look good with jeans, yet it also looks handsome with chinos. And, of course, it works well with field trousers. I Like it...a lot.
