This is my fifth Nexbelt, and it’s an excellent product
I've had ratchet-style belts from another company (Slidebelt). After several months, every buckle from that company broke in exactly the same spot. I love the ratchet idea, so decided to give Nexbelt a shot. Nexbelt seems to have avoided this flaw with a more robust buckle design. Its design lacks the structure that kept breaking on the Slidebelt.
