Belt is GREAT. I have used the belt for 9 months and have not had any slippage issues. Use belt for working, hiking, etc. ... no issues. The comment to shorten it by using a HOT putty works SUPER!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jackdash Black Belt - disappointing
Own a patterned LL Bean belt that is properly stiff and slides into belt loops and into its buckle easily. Ordered the black belt and out of the package found it limp, and could not easily get it through the belt buckle. The end is almost too wide for the buckle openings. Simple problem, perhaps a manufacturing defect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheWhiteLight EZ to cinch, stays cinched, looks great with jeans
I've been wearing this belt for a few months. Usually by this time most belts begin to change shape in the back, this one doesn't. The belt shows no sign of wear. Would recommend!

Got this belt to hold up my snow pants. It's not snowing yet, but I did put the belt to the test on the snow pants. The Overland Belt holds strong and tight?no recinching necessary (that is the #1 criteria for me). I have a 42 "waste", so I ordered the XL and the fit is close to perfect?about 6 inches of tail. I don't find it overly difficult to chinch tight, although it does take a few seconds longer than a standard belt. The Overland Belt is quality made in the USA for L.L.Bean by Bison Designs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LynnsReviews Same belt, different color combo...
The belt that I received is a slightly different color, more browns, more subdued. That cost it one star. The belt is also very thin. That cost it another star. Thank you...

Rated 2 out of 5 by FlyingCustomer Looks and Sounds Cool but Not Worth It
I have this belt in black. Can't get it tight or snug. It requires either three hands or two hands and a pair of vice grips to hold it to get it tight. Then it works loose as you move around and flex the waist area. Not a good design. Someone obviously didn't try this out before offering to customers.

I purchased one of these belts along with a pair of zip off pants, and they are a perfect match. The belt is lightweight, never slips and can take some punishment especially when I go hiking. If there is a length issue with the belt being to long, just heat up a wide putty knife, and slice off the extra length you do not want. Recommended buy, especially at the sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CLTtoNJ Exactly as described
I ordered this, before the hurricane and it arrived today. The belt is wide yes and the end is cut straight and burnt on the end so you could adjust it to your own personal taste. The buckle is aluminum. The best part is it is made in the US. Now if we can get the components made in the US.

I've had it in black for a couple years and the brown one for about a year. It can take some attention to thread the belt through loops, but it's not much hassle. The buckle is super light weight (aluminum?) and is easy to thread and holds perfectly; it has never slipped. This belt doesn't get kinked where it gets buckled the way a leather belt does. Great, simple, design that is comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5758 Good belt
I use this belt while hiking. I had a leather belt that stained my pants. This belt is the perfect replacement. I have no issues in getting the belt through the pant loops as noted by others.
