I've lived in South Korea for years and have been spoiled by the ratchet belts available there, but not in Australia. Here you have a choice between belts with holes, which belts are either too tight or too loose, or web belts which come disengaged all too often. The ratchet is a clear winner. On the minus side, they are made in China and don't work quite as well as the South Korean ones. But they are quite a bit cheaper than a round trip ticket to South Korea.
