This is an awesome belt. Very stiff and holds my every day carry gun in place well. In fact, the belt is stiff enough that I took the remnant of the belt that I cut off to fit it to my waist, and I attached it to my nightstand so I can mount my holster next to my bed at night. I can ratchet the belt discretely with my shirt over it. The buckle is small enough that I can wear it in the 12 o’clock position when tucking my shirt in carrying appendix with no problems. Even if I’m not carrying, I prefer to wear this belt. I’m surprised these belts haven’t taken over the belt industry for non edc use. If you’re on the fence- just buy it. I keep telling my wife how great this belt is and she is accusing me of becoming an old man- because I’m so excited about a belt. She can keep up the jokes- I still love this belt.
I purchased the Appendix 38mm belt and I've had it for almost a month. I absolutely love this belt. I can eat Chipotle, Cold Stone, throw back a few beers and just easily let loose a click or two. Seriously though, super sturdy material, no bending the strap, and I can easily adjust without having to lift my shirt. I switched to appendix carry when I got this belt and it's never been more comfortable to carry (a good holster helps). I switched from a 5.11 leather belt that did great for 5 years and held on for a 6th, but I'm never going back. In fact I'm getting one for my closest buddies and my dad. Easiest gift buying ever.
I just started carrying and got the belt setup. Ive been wearing it for a few days and I have no complaints with it. Easily my favorite belt I've owned. The ratchet mechanism and the buckle is very strong and easy to adjust. The belts very well made and also very stiff. Setup is very easy.
This is my second belt, same one. I love it, period. But one thing would make it perfect. A Keeper, and one as strong as the belt itself. The company told me no one has asked because it is a gun belt or EDC, but that doesn't make sense to me. You can wear this belt like any other and if you leave yourself extra... for carrying a gun and some days you don't, the extra belt needs a keeper. The belt is stiff and does not lay flat against you all of the time. Just doesn't make sense to me. All the other EDC companies make them, and good ones at that. CrossBreed, Kore, they both offer them and really nice ones at that, but the belt, not as good at this Nexbelt. So I will endure, with an almost perfect belt.
Regardless of the carry component. The stiff, solid build on the strap is amazing. My pants don’t fall off my butt for the first time ever. The ratchet system is the greatest belt tech ever. The ability to have it tight while walking around and then you hit a little button to instantly loosen up when seated, is incredible. I know the ratchet isn’t solely a Nexbelt thing, but their implementation of it is great. The button is tiny, easy to hit, not sure if someone else can even see it, but if they could it looks cool. The build on the buckle is great… also looks cool. The installation is easy. Really everything is pretty fantastic.
