Works Great, slips some
Glad they went back to the thicker belt. It makes a difference. I own six of these and thicker versions are superior. They do slip slightly over time but I dont mind adjusting on occasion and I like that I am not beholden to holes. I do wish they had (would bring back) more traditional colors such as red and kelly green. A brightly colored pattern ... Read Morewould be good too.
Great belt, easy to cut to length
Nothing to add to all the great reviews, except the cut to length part. Some reviewers complain that the belt only comes in one size, this isn't an issue. All you have to do after deciding the desired length is to heat a pair of (metal...) scissors and cut/singe at the same time. If the scissors are hot enough, they'll cut through the be...

Great all around belt
Best "web" belt I have ever worn. Sturdy and stretch-free making it feel like it will stand the test of time. Really great buckle that does the job as well as expected. This belt exceeded my expectations as I have struggled to find a great web belt. I expect this one to last many years. Definitely worth the $.
Nice belt, but difficult to get snug
I really wanted to like this belt. It looks smart. The thick, wide webbing is sturdy and comparable to the leather belts I'm used to wearing. And I liked the minimalistic design of the buckle. However it was the buckle that just didn't work for me. After tightening the belt, the buckle would always loosen as I fed the end of the belt out ... Read Morethrough the other side.

Love this belt!
I've never had an adjustable belt that actually stayed tight before. They always end up sliding looser throughout the day, but not this one. And it really is one size fits all...my kids all love to borrow it. We all love it so much, I got another one in a different color! I like variety, so I really never do that!

Best belt I have
I usually buy a belt a year as much as I use them for work and personal use. This year I bought 2 of the Tech Web Belts and they are my favorite so far. When you insert the webbing into the buckle it locks in place, there is no need to turn it back and run it through 2x. I wont need another belt for a long time.
I originally bought black and added blue, anthracite and brown. Well made and stays cinched. I really like the 1.5” width. As a bigger guy, skinny belts tend to promote “fold over”. Maybe I should try some sit ups, but these belts are great in the mean time. The navy colored belt is really a lighter shade.
The belt is made of good quality material, but as you wear it throughout the day, it loosens out of adjustment. Very disappointed!
We are sorry to hear this loosens up throughout the day. Thanks for the feedback on that! If you'd like to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) this, please feel free to do so. We are happy to offer some [help](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html#searchterm=contact) if you need it.
Buckle loop size increase doesn’t make sense
I’ve purchased a couple of these in past years and they’ve been great. I get in and out of machinery for work all day, and the past belts would loosen effortlessly when I wanted to get more comfortable. The new 2019 belts have slightly larger loops around the buckle which causes the belt to clump up unless you loosen it with two hands. I also like ... Read Moreto loosen my belt a little bit when I ride in the car or am sitting anywhere for a long time. I can’t stand a belt digging into my hips, maybe I just have a weird body shape, but the past belts were my go to and now I have to shop around. I’ve gifted these belts and was planning on buying a few different colors for myself seeing as my 2017 belt has been going strong to this day, pretty bummed.
Went to buy another Friction Belt (because I lost mine) and this is all they had. Nowhere as good of a product. It just doesn’t slide well at all, making it very hard to tighten. Also, and this a big one, it can’t get through airport metal detectors without going off. The Friction Belt could.
Best Belt I've Ever Owner,Period.
I've been wearing this belt for the past two years,and I must say I've never worn any type of clothing that I've loved so much. The buckle is hefty,and will stay tight all through the day. The webbing is a tough thick material,that will fit in virtually any pair of pants or shorts! 10/10 recommend
Great belt for about 3 months...
I loved this belt after I first got it,however,the big and I mean BIG down side to this belt is it will stop working as soon as the fibers in the belt material wear in and loosen up.

Tech Web Belt
I have started buying Patagonia clothing since listening to podcast Planet Money when they interviewed the owner of Patagonia. I never knew they stood behind their product as much as they do. So I don't have a problem paying the money for the product knowing I can get it fixed if I break it.
Thicker belt is back! Thank you Patagonia!!!
I wrote the other review entitled "disappointed" on here... I am no longer disappointed! It appears Patagonia has heard our feedback and gone back to the thicker material!

Great comfortable belt
I bought this belt to replace a flimsy web belt that came free with a pair of shorts (not Patagonia) many years back. This belt performed as expected. Buckle appears large,but is rounded and comfortable. The belt held firmly with no slippage,so the issue reported in earlier reviews is gone.

Had it on backwards,but now seems okay
I kept wearing the belt incorrectly such that the Patagonia tag was facing outward,and while the belt somewhat maintained its hold in that position it kept slipping,so I just flipped it around as shown in the video and it's much better but still slips just a bit. Kind of a funny mistake that I see other reviewers have experienced as well,but a... Read Moreltogether it's a pretty good belt. I think the grooving texture on the belt itself could be more pronounced as to be better gripped by the buckle teeth -- perhaps introduce a heavier Tech Web Belt,and then keep this current product as a lighter version.
Good belt,if you use it correctly
I thought this belt was messed up because it slipped so easily. But once I read the reviews about the buckle being on backwards and watched the video I realized I'd been wearing it incorrectly. If I wear it so that it appears to be outside out,it will not stay put. I can easily pull the belt through the buckle. But if I wear the belt so that i... Read Moret appears to be inside out,with the little floppy tag on the outside,I can buckle the belt as shown in the video and it will not slip. Seems like an odd way to make a belt,but it works.
Great belt,but comes loose sometimes
I love this belt. It has a simple design that functions well with a variety of clothes. Looks great on the trail or on the town. The only downside is that if you are looking for something to hold tight,the friction buckle will slip sometimes. Its not bad,but just something to consider.
I own several of the original Tech Web Belts. They WERE the best! These new belts are NOT the same; in fact,they're inferior. I love the new colors,but the webbing material is thinner,and the belt does not stay put in the desired position. It constantly slips and loosens. Unacceptable. Patagonia,I hope you're reading these reviews. Please... Read More bring back the OLD Tech Web Belts!!!
It is kind of back to it's original
I bought a new belt a month ago "patagonia.eu" thinking that the thinkness was gonna be like the old version and the buckle was gonna be backwards. to my surprise the bucle was the way it used to be!! i have one of each versi'n of the belt and the truth is that second one sucos big time.. well thanks for puting everything back to way... Read More it used to be!! looking forward to buy the red one "the one i bought when the second versi'n was on the market"..
Belt that cannot be used as a belt ...
Looks nice,but... Unfortunately,this belt will not stay tight on anyone with any lack of flatness (belly) at all,where the buckle is. If you have any roundness at all to your belly,the geometry of the buckle is such that it lets the webbing slip past the buckle. Solutions for a belt that works: 1) Tighten the belt to the point of extreme discomfort... Read More 2) Lose weight 3) Buy a belt with a positive clasp. On its way back.
Maybe not the original but best one out there!
First thing I need to say is that this is a great belt. It merits the "burly" in the description (just the right stiffness in the belt loops),it holds together well with minimal slippage for a belt of this type (which is to say it keeps my pants up),and it looks damned nice with that thick silver buckle. I don't use the bottle opener... Read More,but don't mind it at all either. If this belt didn't have a history I think we'd all be raving about it. But,of course,it does have a history so we compare it to its own earlier incarnations (there were two previous that I'm aware of) and forget to compare it across the line. I'm giving this a five star rating because that's what I would give it if I didn't know about the first of the 3 iterations -- I have all three & will conitnue to wear them all,each depending on my mood. This belt goes a long way toward repairing the thinner webbing introduced into the 2nd iteration -- nice and thick & as far as I can tell every bit the quality of the legendary 1st version. Although I must say,I wore the puny second iteration all summer long & got to where I could appreciate it for certain venues,I am super delighted to have the heft back here. It doesn't slip so easily as the thin one & it just feels better,much more able to handle the kind of badass hiking I intend to do with it (and did with the first iteration). The buckle is still reversed on this,an innovation introduced with that thin number two version that people just loved to hate. And while it's true that it seems to mean that the buckle doesn't lie as flat as it did in that first run,that's not something that concerns me much (if somebody really wants that beer opener to be more handy & this is how they do it,then fine by me). To be honest (I've been wearing this around for a week now),I'm of the still early opinion that this new belt slips less than the first one did -- now this may not be true over time,but the teeth on the buckle seem to get a better bite on the webbing than I experienced with sainted version number one. I think that may come from the reversal that folks aren't settled with. Bottom line for me: I love this belt. It works. It's rugged. Patagonia responded really gracefully to the discontent (which I shared) with that whimpy second run. I'm going to make sure to buy a few extras of this new version just to make sure I have back-up.
Great Belt. Stays Tight
At first the new style belt ( thinner material & reversed buckle) was awkward but after using it for awhile I prefer the new style. The belt buckle doesn't slip and has easier access to the bottle opener. It just takes a little getting used to if you have the old style belt.
If it wasn't broken - why fix it?
The new version of this belt has the buckle reversed - to better enable the bottle opener function. It's made of thinner webbing material and just doesn't work as well as the belt I have come to rely upon for years. Patagonia - please bring back the classic. Just carry a bottle opener with you on your outdoor expeditions.
I really like the overall design of the belt,but something needs to be done about the buckle. The teeth are not sharp/pointed enough to maintain a good grip on the belt. I'm constantly have to pull on the belt to tighten. I own 2 but have taken the buckle off 1 and use the belt with an UA buckle.
I really wish they would have followed through and produced this belt fully back to the original design. I'll give it two stars because I love the fact that the thicker material is back which over time wears in like a good leather belt. The buckle on the other hand does not lay as flat reversed and while I understand they did this to make the ... Read More"bottle opener" easier to use,I'm buying this to use as a belt,not a bottle opener. Looking forward to buying more of these belts if they ever change the design back,but until then I'll keep using the old one I've had for 6 plus years.
I have to agree with the others,change not good
Reversing the buckle so the beer opener can be used without undoing the belt results in a worse functioning buckle. It is harder to tighten the belt,the buckle sticks out more and it is really a silly reason to change. I love a good beer now & then,but not at the expense of a poorly designed buckle. Please consider changing it back.
