Description

Pop bottles and keep your pants on.

We'd say the Patagonia Tech Web Belt is tough-as-nails, but technically, it's tougher; and it opens post-float refreshments. Nails can't do that. A forged aluminum buckle and rugged nylon webbing give your pants a tight, reliable cinch-down so your threads aren't at your ankles after a tough climb or a burly paddle.

  • Tough, quick-dry webbing doubles as an emergency lash or strap should the need arise
  • Forged aluminum buckle is strong-like-bull and lightweight
  • An anodized anti-corrosive finish means that the buckle won't go the way of your rusty pickup any time soon

Works like it should.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I got tired of using standard belts with hole because you never have enough options and they never fit right. Too tight one day, then too loose the next. So I decided to give a friction belt a try. So far, so good! I've used it everyday for the last 6 months from sitting at a desk at work, to hiking along ridges on the Appalachian trail. Still holds tight and looks good!

Best Belt

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

Don't have a lighter or carabiner handy? This Patagonia Tech Web Belt may be the belt for you! Not only is it a great bottle-opening tool, but it also does a great job at keeping your pants on. For those times when you don't want your pants on, the nylon material makes this belt super easy to pull off.

Fun and Functional

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this belt in orange for my boyfriend so he doesn't have to buckle up every time he wears a belt (he always insisted on wearing his seatbelt style belts popular with teenagers in the early 2000s). He loves it and wears it with everything! The orange is a fun way for him to add color to his outfits and the belt stays put. I bought the turquoise for myself to use with my snowboard pants but haven't had the chance to use it yet. The buckle seems a little too thick to open a beer bottle but maybe we don't have the right finesse.

Great belt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this belt. It stays tight, has bottle opening capabilities, and is durable enough to strap things to your roof-rack if you need to.

There is nothing more to say; this belt works.

meh

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

this is my second one. it won't stay tight. not worth it.

considering the only thing you need a belt to do is stay tight I give this a 0-1 star.

Just what I have been looking for

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was concerned this belt wouldn't be very wide and the webbing very thin, however this belt lives up to all the positive reviews. Perfect size and extremely durable. Time to ditch my other belts, this is just what I've been looking for

Can anyone tell me the length of the webbing...

Can anyone tell me the length of the webbing of this belt? I have an ArcTeryx and it's 49" in length. In that particular belt Arc has s, m and l. the large is 49" I know most are "one size fits all" but that depends on the length of the web. Also, I have a web belt from Mountain Hardwear that fits very well, too. Not sure of the length, but I'm guessing well less than 49" Thx.

Responded on

The reviews of this product on the Patagonia website suggest that if you're not 34" or slimmer in the waist, it will probably not fit. One reviewer reported a 38" waist was too big to thread the belt at all.

Best Answer Responded on

The Tech Web Belt here is 48" in length.

My favorite belt!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wore this belt every damn day for probably a year until my stupid ass left it at the crag. Now, I'm ordering another!

Stays tight, is super easy to wear and seems to get better with age. Once its broken in its nice and flexible but just stiff enough to hold my britches up... unless I leave them at the crag :P

Pull you shorts up

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This belt works great at holding up my shorts and even my pants. Very simple to use, first I run it through all the loops in my shorts from left to right around my waist and then looped through the buckle from right to left and snug it tight. First time I wore it I had to mark the excess length to cut off and then singe the frayed nylon in the area of the cut. Now I wear this belt with all my pants and shorts. Perfect Fit.

Wear this with everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have the grey color and I can wear it with everything and everywhere:
Shorts, ski pants, khakis, hiking pants, in the office, at the beach.... you get the point.

It "holds" very well, but yet is very easy to take on and off. The width of the webbing also makes it very comfortable to wear for extended periods.

While $30 is expensive for a belt, just think of all the belts this will replace!

Good Belt, Funky Smell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I needed something besides my standard leather belt to throw in the mix, and this seemed like a good option based on reviews. I tried it out with my snowboarding pants and jeans with no slipping, even after taking a few tumbles.

However, I'm not sure if this is normal, but the belt shipped with a strong chemical smell similar to egg/sulfur water. I got rid of it by soaking in dish soap.

Modern classic should last for eternity

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Patagonia made this one seemingly bullet proof.

The stitch holding the webbing loop in place after it's passes through the bucked seems really strong. The webbing itself it virtually indestructible and doesn't seem like it will fray. The buckle is strong, but it will get nicked up with use.

This belt should last forever, and while there are some aesthetic elements to make it more than plain vanilla, it's not trendy per se. So, I suppose you could call it a modern classic.

what is the length of the belt?

what is the length of the belt?

Responded on

According to Patagonia, this belt weighs 127 g (4.5oz), is 1.5 in wide, and additionally can double as a bottle opener.
However, as to the length, on REI, it is listed as being 43 in, but on Zappos it says the length is 47 in.
Either way, though, I would imagine that even if it did come a bit longer than you needed, you could take a sharp knife to it and shave off what you don't need then seal the loose thread with a lighter or burner of some sort. Hope this helps.

Great for Beer Brewers!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this belt for my step dad for Christmas and he is hyped! He loves the quality of this belt, said it fits great and doesn't slip, and should last him a number of years. Not to mention hes a home brewer and loves that with this belt there's no need to hunt down a bottle opener .

Great everyday belt

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This belt looks and fits great.
It never loosens and you can adjust to any size you need.
Love it.

Great Quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

3 years and I wear it almost every day. Its starting to break down a bit where the teeth of the buckle rub on the nylon, but at this rate I got at least another 2-3 years to go. Holds strong, doesn't slip, but yes the buckle is on the large side.

Good Product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

1 Year into it I can't give much of an estimation when it might wear out...

Stays tight but the buckle is big

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Keeps my pants on. The buckle was bigger then a thought it would be and is noticeable if you have a shirt that pulls against it.

why did i wait

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

i've been putting off buying a new webbing belt for years now...dealing with an oldschool bison (10yrs+) that is too narrow and worn. As advertised this one works exactly as expected and i've only noticed the large buckle coming into play on long hikes with a heavy pack if it's stuck under a hip belt. Like it so much i now own 2. Wear 34" waist and didn't need to cut the belt down

A fine belt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great belt. Low profile, never slips and has a stylish design to it. Wouldn't go with any other option in the future. Other reviews said the length might be a problem but length was not an issue for me (I am a size 33/34 waist). Even if it was an issue, seriously, it's fabric. Cut the thing and then singe the end with a lighter and you're good to go.
