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.

Love this belt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"

I have 3 of them, before they came in sizes. I use them mostly for shorts and my snowboard pants. Have used in a pinch when needed to tie something down as well.

Patagonia Tech Web Belt 2.0

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 220 lbs
    Size Purchased: L/XL

As mentioned in other reviews, Patagonia has used a much thinner webbing for this belt than in previous versions. I would give the old belt 4-5 stars, but after this new update, 1. The belt feels light, thin and cheap. Barely stays buckled to keep your pants up and is much shorter than the previous model. I would steer clear of this new style and look else where. The Mountain Khakis Webbing Belt is a great alternative.

It doesn't hold up your pants...

This belt straight up sucks. They changed the thickness of the webbing material so the buckle doesn't properly clamp down. Pulling up your pants has never been so annoying.

New belt fabric is terrible

    Size Purchased: Large

I do not recommend this belt. The old style Tech Belts from Patagonia were great. The webbing material was about 2x thicker, according to my calipers. In order to reduce costs (my belief) the new belt uses a lighter, thinner webbing. Unfortunately, the belt loses its rigidity and slips constantly through the buckle, a byproduct of the buckle dimensions not being adjusted to account for the thinner material. Bad design/engineering choices by Patagonia on this change and not thought through. If you can, get the old style - they are excellent. Avoid the new ones.

Responded on

Sorry you're not psyched. Definitely give Backcountry or Patagonia a shout and they can work take care of you with a return, it's definitely under Patagonia's Iron Clad Guarantee.
Couple notes - fabric was updated to be a bluesign approved recycled fabric, not to cut costs.
And there's a fix in the works for this to make the buckle work with the current webbing.
Super sorry, the old tech web belt was a favorite of mine too.

The Not-So-Belt, Belt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

Very disappointed with this belt. The poor buckle design allows the belt to loosen with minimal pressure so you are constantly reaching down and tightening throughout the day. Double lacing is a must and annoying. This belt doesn't provide it's basic function.

Good casual belt

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

Works well, but not great. Doesnt cinch super tight, so you either have to adjust it from time to time or double it back through itself to lock it down.

Doesn't work

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 4"

    Size Purchased: L/XL

Sorry gang, it gets one star because a belt really only has one purpose: to keep my pants up. This belt doesn't. After reading so many five star reviews, I decided to buy two, and neither one works as it should. I have been reduced to double looping them, as per John's suggestion. Love patagonia, love the style of the belt, but doesn't stay cinched. One star.

Design Change

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: large

I recently bought this belt for the 3rd time and when I received it the design had changed. The material was thinner and softer and the length of the same size was shorter. It was too short for my liking, but it does the job (holding my pants up). The material change, in my opinion, is good.

The small size is unbelievably short

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5'
    Weight: 110 lbs
    Size Purchased: small

I originally purchased the small size belt in red. The color was fun but the belt was extremely short to the point I could not wear it. It would barely close on my hips. I am not a big woman and I thought I had perhaps mistakenly ordered kids size! But no, the small size is just super short. I returned it and got a large one instead.

Works, but works better when you double

I ordered the Patagonia Friction Belt, but received this belt by mistake. The buckle looks nice. The webbing is fairly thin and smooth. This is a plus if you are wearing a pack or harness over it. However because it is thin and smooth, the buckle doesn't seem to hold well. The solution is simple. I just doubled the webbing back through to "close" the buckle like a climbing harness. This also has the added benefit of reducing the length of the "tail" so I don't have to trim it. I am not so sure about the circular bartack stitching used to hold the buckle on. I would have preferred a couple rows of bartacks or a "box-x". If it comes loose I will just toss it on the machine and stitch it correctly. Overall I think it's a decent value for the $29 spent. I think I still would have preferred the smaller buckle on the Friction Belt, but this one in nice enough I am not going to worry about exchanging it. Just make sure you understand this is NOT safety gear and doesn't compare to a purpose build riggers belt.

All around good belt. Lightweight and comfortable whilst cinched. That is all.

Perfect for what's intended!

I've had mine for over a year and the belt does what's intended. It stays tight, looks cool (as pictured), and could possibly be used to save you in a pinch. (webbing back up?)

Cool product!
