I read through forums and Mike's belts are one of the names that popped up frequently, so I figured I give him a try. I posted a review once but want to do it again on behalf of my friend as well because of how much he loves the belt, too! At first, I bought this belt to replace my generic gun belt I got from a gun store that's sagging and wearing out; but now it looks like I'll be a returning customer, not because Mike's belt won't last, but because how awesome and beautifully done they are!! The belt is definitely tough, and thick, and it needs a good break-in at first, but it is because of that I know this belt will last me a long time. I love how the belt has my name (and my friend's for his) inscribed inside the belt. Now I have my own belt in my own name, just like my dad's belt. The Titanium buckle was definitely a good pick for those of us that's interested in material science, other than it being hypoallergenic. Mike's belt definitely lives up to its name! I highly recommend it, and now my friend is in love with it and plans on getting one for his brother later this year!
