Nice addition

by - verified purchaser |
I received my belt this past Friday. The first thing you'll notice is the weight and thickness of the belt. It's terrific to have a nice piece of leather. You'll enjoy strapping this thing on every time you wear it.

The reason I only gave it four stars is because after just two days (I wore it on Saturday and Sunday), the back of a rivet fell off the belt (remember, this is the belt that my kids will be fighting for someday--well after two days, I was very surprised). Since it's the backside of the belt, I'm not very concerned, but was surprised none the less. The second small complaint is that the first two punched holes on the belt are too short to be secured down, so you have to use at minimum the third hole for the belt to be secured (make sure you purchase the right size--which I think is a bit tricky.

I'm glad I purchased it though, and would definitely recommend it.

It Will Endure

I've probably purchased many belts that I thought had real "quality," but this one beats them all. Compared to the store bought variety, this belt has few peers. I bought the coffee brown color, and the belt can't compare to the others in my now, low brow collection. Now, I understand why people are surprised when they purchase directly from an expert in materials vs a contrived look in the store. I'll be buying at least one or two more belts in this same model. They are substantial, look incredible, and are built to last. You won't be disappointed.

Best belt on the market

by - verified purchaser |
This is what a belt should be...classy, strong, thick enough to not just hold up your pants but also anything you want to strap to it. Bought two in different colors and would not even look for another belt as these are the best I have seen even among custom made belts.

Tow Belt

by - verified purchaser |
Got the belt as a Xmas gift. I know quality when I see it. My first impression was in agreement with SaddleBack's logo...my brothers will fight over this when i'm dead. Second thought was being confident I could hitch it to my truck to tow a boat. Currently saving to buy some luggage b/c it's obvious this company doesn't mess around.

This is one of those times where you think you know quality and all that goes away when you are shown quality. Don't hesitate, just click buy and you will be happy.

A Tow Belt Indeed!

by - verified purchaser |
They are by far the thickest and coolest belts that I own. At first you will be surprised at how thick it is. When you first get this belt you can literally make it sit completely straight and horizontal using only 2 fingers, but it will quickly form to the shape of your body with regular use. Zero complaints.

Tough

by - verified purchaser |
This belt is as tough as they say it is and I'm really glad I bought this belt. I've been wearing it every day for over a month and has very minor signs of wear.

My only criticism of this belt is it's super squeaky at the buckle. If you're a student like me people will look over at you when you move around in your chair. I'm thinking about oiling it at the buckle but haven't done it yet.

The last one

by - verified purchaser |
Just received my second Tow belt from Saddleback; I've had my first one for several months now and couldn't be more pleased!
I can't remember how many $30-$40 belts I've owned over the years, but after receiving my first belt from Saddleback (black tow belt) I gave my others to goodwill. Now that I picked up a brown one, I'm down to two belts; the last belt I'll ever buy, unless I buy another one from these folks as a gift for someone.
Worth every penny! The best and last belt you'll ever own.
Thank you for another second to none product, Dave

My girl-friend bought me this belt despite my protests of not needing one....and I am glad to be wrong. I am tall and thin, which makes all clothing a battle to get right, but this is the first time a belt has fit perfectly. Everything that wonderful man in the video says is true.....I love this belt.
....I can suspend my entire body weight and swing around, do not advise anyone to do it, but I like having fun.

Top Notch

by - verified purchaser |
This thing means business. Fits good, looks good and it could lift the titanic. I got mine in carbon black and it will take a few years to break in perfectly but it's already come along way in around a month. Don't know what else to say, Dave covers everything in the video.

I'm not sure if its because of the colour choice, but it didn't have the really great smell like the rest of my stuff from saddleback. It's starting to come around the more I wear it. I really like the screw type rivets used to reinforce the bucket too

Wow

by - verified purchaser |
I always buy top quality and research a product before making a purchase. After months of looking at the website (very educational) I decided to purchase the tow belt with the new antique finish buckle. My biggest reservation was price. After seeing and feeling the quality,, I believe it's worth much more than I paid. I personally would stand behind this product and plan on buying more for gifts for my loved ones!

Awesome belt

by - verified purchaser |
I received my second saddleback belt a few days ago. The tow belt width 1.75 has been discontinued. The few left are on Dave's deal. My review is simple the saddleback tow belt is of the highest leather quality. It is far superior when compare /contrast to any other brand. Saddleback staff is also superior particularity Liz. Her instant response was spot on. Having purchased other saddleback leather items her positive action keeps me a lifetime customer. Thank you for an excellent product.

Outstanding

by - verified purchaser |
The days of accepting belts bought in bulk during my father's bi-annual trips to Mexico have come to an end. Never again will the bond between my middle and my pants be tenuous.

Stop wasting your time reading reviews and make this the best belt you and I've ever owned.

Best belt ever

by - verified purchaser |
I purchased this belt in black and use it every day with a holster. The quality is unsurpassed and I will be ordering another in brown. If you want a belt that will support the weight of a full size pistol and last for the foreseeable future then look no further.

You could tow a truck with it

Now that is one heck of a belt ! I was getting tired to be chewing through so many poor quality belts. Even the real leather expensive ones didn't cut it for me. When I saw that Saddleback was making some, I didn't hesitate one bit. It is very wide, very thick and very, very sturdy. Worn it daily for more than a year and it hasn't moved. The size isn't easy to get right though, I'd advice contacting the customer service if you're unsure. But don't worry, they're adorable. I had to return mine for a smaller one and even though there were some parcel problems it went without a hitch.
Now unfortunately I've chosen to drop belts in favour of suspenders so I don't wear it anymore. But I'm sure waiting for Saddleback Leather suspenders !

Sticks out, rubs against belt loops; a pain to undo.

by - verified purchaser |
I recently ordered the Tow Belt 1 1/2” in chestnut recently. I am a size 34” waist, so logically I figured the size 34” belt would be ideal. I was severely mistaken.

The belt is actually about 43.5” long, 42” without the buckle. Not including the buckle, the holes are at: 34” (very last hole), 37” (middle hole), and 40” (first hole), respectively. That translates into me wearing the very last hole as I am a 34” waist, producing a comic effect as there is a massive length of belt sticking out to one side. Not good!

In the end, I ordered the Old Bull Belt 1 1/2” in 32” and can wear it properly using the middle hole (without buckle, measures about 35”, a decent fit for my 34” waist), which will replace the tow belt that I will now have to return.

Besides the size snafu (seemingly for all Saddleback Leather Co belts), I have two issues to address about the tow belt itself: it is too thick, and the stitching catches on most belt loops.

To address the first issue: on the one hand, the thickness is actually pretty virile [manly] and stunning, but on the other hand, it creates two ill effects: one, it is painfully difficult to take off. In fact, I have dubbed the tow belt “The Anaconda” because of the way it constricts as one attempts to undo the belt. Two, it does not go gentle into that good [first] belt loop. In fact, it sits rather defiantly on top of it. Like my cat. On everything.

The second issue is just the belt's stitching grates against the fabric of the pant's belt loops. This is especially bad when compounded with the thickness of the belt, which forces the stitching to rub against the forcefully expanded belt loops, and when wearing, for example, linen pants where the belt loops are rather fragile (compared to say, denim).

In summary, it is a 5/5 star belt when it comes to construction, manliness, and durability, but I feel the design is a bit clumsy. It is probably better suited for construction workers and towing airplanes than for people who wear linen pants. And for that reason, I give it 4/5 stars.

To solve both issues, I recommend getting the old bull belt as I did. Briefly: it is just as fashionable, comes in the same width, length, and colors, and seems reasonably durable without any of the obtrusive thickness and stitching. Also, remember to chat with Saddleback's awesome customer service representatives. They will absolutely help you find the right color/fit, just like they did for me in finding the correct (old bull) belt. Cheers!

Brief note on color: the chestnut is just a reddish version of the dark coffee (or perhaps chocolate) brown. They are both dark, but neither are dark enough to be considered black. Pretty much verbatim from the customer service reps; just passing it on.

Wow!

by - verified purchaser |
I just received my belt today and I must say that I can't stop looking at it. Just like all my other purchases from SBL this item will be fought over when I finally reside on the other side of the dirt.
BTW I purchased the wrong size at first and spoke to the nicest customer service person ever.... I believe her name was Diane and she got me on the right path within 5 minutes.
Thanks SBL for making products that make me believe in getting what I paid for!

Tow Belt

by - verified purchaser |
I have 2 old bull belts but wanted a belt in the tobacco color so i had to get a tow belt. WOW this thing is thick! You really could tow something with it. I havent worn it yet, but I imagine it might take a little while to break in like me other 2 SBL belts but I expect it to be just as great. If you want a super HEAVY DUTY belt, get this one.

You could pull a stump out of the ground with this belt

by - verified purchaser |
When I was considering this belt, my wife asked why it was called a "tow belt." I told her that it should be strong enough to pull something if I ever needed to (clearly making it an absolute necessity). This is most certainly the case. I've been very impressed with the quality. It's noticeably heavier than any belt I've ever owned and the hardware feels very high quality. It is much thicker than other belts which was a bit unusual at first but I quickly became accustomed to it.

This was my first purchase from Saddleback and I was very happy with the product and service. Email communication was good. Delivery was fast. Product is excellent. I seriously doubt I will ever need to take advantage of the outstanding warranty - but it's nice to have just in case.

Real Deal

by - verified purchaser |
This belt is everything they claim it to be. You could tow a boat with it. I wear it with jeans only. It feels a little too intense to be worn with chinos. You could wear it with duck chino I am sure but no light weight material. Unbelievable quality. I really appreciate that manufactures like this exist. The company seems to be very transparent and if what they claim is true then I want to support them more. You could easily spent 93 dollars on a piece of junk belt from Jcrew or whatever menswear store is big right now, chances are you would get a crap product made in hell (i.e a slave shop in a third world country). Not only do you get a belt that will last you a life time but you can buy it with a clear conscious.

Another "great" review

by - verified purchaser |
I am a 54 year 6"2" Electrician. I purchased the carbon Tow belt on Davey's deals. It was 25% off because of the out of date color, I guess. Because the belt is flawless and made well. I ruined 2 other leather belts in the Las Vegas hot summer this year. I thought I would try S/B Tow belt. It is the best belt I ever had. I will buy another belt to use when I am not at work. At my age I am not buying junk any more.
Please do what I did....I looked all over the web for the best quality belt for around 90.00 and kept coming back to here. Do not be afraid to buy it for yourself or for someone you care about.
I also purchased the wallet here and am very happy with that too.

When I was living in Acapulco, I got an apartment next to a pit boss from Vegas. He was a real nice guy and even took care of Blue once when I traveled up north towards Mexico City to interview for a job selling real estate around a golf course. Steve was only able to live in Acapulco because he had a friend who was somehow collecting his unemployment check from the government for him and depositing it into his bank account. But Steve never really did much. He just hung out on the beach and walked around town. I’m not really sure what he did, come to think of it. But one thing I know, is that Steve never wore a belt. All of his clothes had drawstrings around the waist. It was a life of leisure.

I, on the other hand, had to wear a belt and a long sleeve shirt everyday as I was trying to get tourists to go see a timeshare at the Mayan Palace. It was an absolutely awful job, but I did get to meet a lot of people. That was cool. It’s jobs like that made me wish I were like Steve and never had to wear a belt again. But since I do, I wear Tow Belts and Old Bull Belts.
