    Man, I hate to be a Debbie Downer here…but that zipper looks painful, although more so if you’re doin conceal carry in that area

      came to say the same thing. I have to wear a belt pretty snug to keep my pants up, and even just a seam in the wrong spot can dig in pretty bad.

      I think it is close enough to the front that it wouldn’t be so bad, but a flatter pull (like what they use on the flys of pants) might have been a better choice.

        Totally agree…and what’s with the American flag as one of the things you can tuck into the belt?

        • Dellis says:

          Noticed that also, like a GI Joe doll flag? Curious minds want to know!

          I woild think some type of velcro would be better than a clunky zipper

            I suspect the flag is about the R in SEER. In Viet Nam many POWs made miniature U.S. Flags and kept them hidden. They said it helped pull them through the tough times.

    Ive worn belts with internal zips like this carrying emergency money for months on end with no issue. Unless you are using it to hold up silk PJs youll likely find the throusers provide suffficient padding for the zip on belt not to be noticable

    The Good: Looks nice, and made in the USA
    The Bad: Zipper thing, just looks to be too much for a gun belt, think of zipper access and bulges. How to access the zipper area seems lees than desirable unless your are in the bathroom.

    For uncomfortable zipper tabs, I break them off and swap in a piece of nylon cord. Heat-shrink the end, no knot.

    Sorry for the dupe.

    Put some of my VERTX pants on today for work and placed my cash in the “hidden” pocket which is made so nice and discreet it looks like a part of the pant seam. I then thought of this belt….that’s how it should of been created.

    I dig it and have worn money belts similar to this design while traveling with no issues many times.

    What I’d like to see is a double web version in different sizes without completely being covered in loop. I prefer no buckle for my regular carry. More comfortable, can be offset for AIWB carry, no buckle to dig in while sitting, driving, bending and no buckle to scratch fenders when working on vehicles.
