I bought this to replace my old Scorpion lever belt, whose buckle snapped after >2 years of use. It has been fine so far, albeit a bit slippery on my back in the early stages. I expect that to change after I've broken it in. Can't go wrong for the price! I bought the Medium and have had to move the lever all the way to the smallest notches. My waist size is ~33" at the moment. Go a size smaller than you think with these belts!
