Ever since kicking the leather habit, I've been trying to find a good belt alternative. Fake leather belts shrivel within a few months; fabric belts loosen up quickly. But, Chaco being Chaco, [...]This belt holds up great! I'm so impressed. It doesn't slip like other fabric belts I've used. The teeth in the metal part of the belt really grip (without undoing the fabric), and so far the only problem I've had was tightening the belt too tight in anticipation of loosening. Not with this belt! So glad I decided to take a chance! I've gone through 2 other non-leather belts in the past year, but I know this one will stick around for a while. Thanks, Chaco and REI!
