Bought this belt in size 36, black. Pretty much what I expected. The polymer backing against the leather front makes for a thick sturdy belt. Top and bottom of the belt is stitched to keep polymer back and leather front together. The whole front of the belt is plain leather. The polymer backing is a dark gray and a little tacky. It's thick but not too stiff that you can't bend it but it's not as yielding as a plain leather belt. My EDC load is a S&W J frame revolver in a "101 Holsters" kydex belt holster, four speed loader pouches from Jox with Comp I speed loaders, a 2x2x2 ammo pouch, a glove pouch and a Blackberry and Note 3 in horizontal belt pouches. Handled the load comfortably. I could easily have used a size 38 but then the tail would have overlapped the 1:00 area where I carry my Blackberry. I prefer a shorter tail so that 1:00 area is free for me to carry my Blackberry in a pouch. Follow their sizing instructions.
If you carry a gun, you need a sturdy belt to ensure that you can carry comfortably. This belt is nice and rigid, but still soft and comfortable, and it looks great too!
Rigidity - the belt is nice and rigid due to the double layered design, this keeps it from sagging or twisting under the weight of your gun, which keeps your holster right where you want it and prevents your gun from tilting out and printing badly if you're trying to conceal. The belt does even flinch under the weight of my full size 1911, which weighs in around 2.6 pounds loaded.
Comfort - I had concerns about the comfort of the belt considering that the inner layer is polymer, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is very soft. I have no problem wearing this belt all day.
Quality - I'd expect nothing less from Magpul, the quality is excellent. These belts are made in Texas by guys that clearly know a thing or two about making belts. The material is soft and sturdy, the...
Really a nice belt ! Made in Texas and built like they use to build belts.Style can be worn with casual pants and tactical pants. A pricey belt until you compare to belts that you find in western wear store that aren't nearly as well made. I'll be buying another in black soon.
