I write this in hope that Eagle Creek will heed my input and consider re-designing this product.
I purchased this item in June. It is now September and the buckle has broken -- see photo. I have not even used this item very much.
I have lots of Eagle Creek items and usually their stuff is sturdy, but the buckle on this belt looks suspiciously flimsy from the start -- it is made of very thin plastic. And the clasp is not exactly easy to put on and take off. Sure enough, it has just broken completely as I took the belt off. It makes me wonder how secure this thing really is. What if the clasp had broken off without me noticing while on a trip? How easy is it for someone to grab and pull this belt off you if the clasp does not hold?
This is really a shame, because the belt itself is really comfortable to wear and I had hoped to use it for a long time. It is not so much the money but the reliability that troubles me. Eage Creek, please do something about this!
