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

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, but have feedback to share
  • 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.

Double-take - Bulge But No Slip

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

I normally do not like this type of belt because in my experience it is prone to slipping. You tighten it to the perfect tension and then stand up and poof! it's loosened its grip and your pants are sagging. Not this guy, I haven't had any issues with slippage and this belt has maintained its set tension over a full day.

The buckle doubles as a bottle opener too, which is much cooler than using the bottom of a dirty sandal to open something that's going into your mouth.

The only downer for me was that the buckle does bulge out when the belt is fed through so that it doesn't sit very close to your pants. For guys wearing tighter pants, it'll give you a double bulge and probably lead to women giving you a double-look. Maybe not a bad thing after all...

Great Belt, Does not slip

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

I got this belt for trekking, web belts are great for active lifestyles. The webbing strap is very burly, and the buckle is sturdy and strong. I was able to use the bottle cap opener function plenty of times in Cusco. Pretty cool feature I might ad. I have a 32 inch waist and did not need to cut the webbbing.

Store cut the belt down to size

Most outdoors stores will have a webbing cutter which will also seal the end of the cut so it does not fray. This was done with my belt and it looks like a factory finish.

DEVO belt

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

This belt works very well in that it holds up my pants. I bought it in 'forge grey' and I should warn you that it's more silver than grey. A bit shiny for my taste. But it's burly. If you need a belt that would hold together your suit of armor, this is it. And it would still match your armor shoes if you bought it in grey.

Great belt

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

I've been using the belt for the past few months. It's a strong, well-made, full-size belt and clasp. It's easy to fasten - no holes so it's very flexible in terms of fit.

The belt is somewhat long for someone with a 31" waist like mine. That said, this has not really been an issue because I tuck the remainder into my belt loops. My understanding is that others cut the belt and reseal the end. I haven't felt the need to do that because the belt loops line up well.

I have not used the bottle opening feature.

Others have said there's a bulge at the clasp because of the material going through it. That's true but I haven't had any issues with that at all. Other belts are similar (e.g. a leather belt). It won't cause a bulge under your shirt where the shirt drapes awkwardly.

The belt is not dressy but not something to only wear in an outdoorsy setting. I wear it with jeans or casual clothing all the time. Today I'm wearing it with my dress pants. Not bad but typically won't do this.

Great looking belt

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

I love bigger buckles and this one has it! This is a sharp looking belt with a beefy buckle and wide belt. Looks great even on jeans! My only beef is that it sticks out a little more than I like but I can live with that. I havent tried opening a bottle yet with the claimed buckle opener! This is one length so I had the store shorten the webbing and sealing it with their webbing cutting machine. Worked perfectly!

Another good review

I have to add to the list- this belt is great! I picked it up for my boyfriend as a simple belt to use when hiking/backpacking. I usually am not fond of this type of buckle, as it slips too easily. However, this one holds tight, and gave zero slip. It's easily adjustable, and incredibly durable so far. Would absolutely recommend!

Absolutely great.

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

I actually bought a second one because I was so impressed with the first. These bad boys are durable as all get-out (have used it as a tie-down for my 4Runner). If you are considering buying one of these, let me save you some time: BUY THREE.
