Rated 4 out of 5 by Boxcar6 Not for those changing sizes
This is a beautiful belt and I love the handsome, supple bison leather. It's a narrower width than some of my other belts so it fit belt loops with ease.
I did have an issue with the belt wearing a significant mark in the leather at the notch I had originally worn the belt. Now that I'm a size smaller, the now revealed mark in the leather is more significant than with other leather belts.
That's certainly part of the deal with most belts, but something to keep in mind when purchasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nickster12 Nice belt
It is a very handsome belt. But I must agree with several other reviewers that LL Bean's recommendation of ordering the same size as your waist is wrong. I wear a 32 inch pant, and I ordered a 32 in the belt, and it was too small, plain and simple. I reordered a 34 instead.

I love this belt. Great look. The Bison leather is really nice and the buckle really looks great against it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoBoy Perfect Choice; Again!
I purchased this belt about 8 to 10 years ago, and have have worn it on average, four days per week. It still looks as good as the day I purchased it, and it even survived a basement flood (draped over a doorknob and the belt tip wicked-up water). The water stain faded away, and I still wear this with casual and dress chinos to my very professional office. Today I am ordering a new one, because my waist is a little larger than 8 years ago. Like LL recommends, order your waist size; but be honest with yourself! My old belt size is 30 inches, I moved up to 31 inch pants, and I moved to the second hole from the tip. This time I will order a size 32 belt, which should place me somewhere in the middle. This is a lovely belt, and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by habanero Too short
As other reviewers have stated, the belt is cut too short for your regular waist size. Really disappointed in LL Bean on this item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by triodes Nice leather, poor buckle
Good quality bison leather, bought both colors same time. Both buckles started deteriorating same time---poor quality finish. Why no brass buckle in first place on belt this quality, is the question. Less than a year of use, in California no humidity weather, buckle looks like it came out of a lake. Not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DWHart Made in USA
This is a terrific belt and matches the bison leather shoes I ordered previously. I was all the more pleased when I found that the belt was made in the USA. I would suggest that those ordering this item order one size larger. I ordered size 36 which was too small, returned the belt in exchange for a 38 which fits perfectly. Excellent LL Bean service as always.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopping4son Glad I checked Reviews
This belt looks good and my son was delighted. Instead of a 36, however, I ordered a 38 since some people had complained it was a bit small. The 38 fit perfectly; glad I didn't order a 36 and then have to return for a larger one. My thanks to previous reviewers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by totheriva Beware of size
I wear size 36 pants. Size chart way off. Ordered belt for 36 waist. What a joke! When I wrapped belt around my waist the tip of belt just touched the buckle. Better order 2 sizes up. I should have read reviews first, seems I'm not the first. Belt itself is OK but seems to lack the quality I would expect from L L Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodhue Best Belt I've Ever Used!
Got a black Allagash Bison belt for Christmas several years ago and it's pretty much the only belt I use. Wears well and still looks great! I'll be getting a brown one for Christmas this year,(I peeked in the attic),and look foward to wearing it. ~ 5 BIG stars!
