Solid construction. I was a little annoyed when the belt came and it was marked size 46. I thought it was going to be useless. However, as the listing says -- it is really easy to resize the belt by lifting the flap on the buckle and cutting the belt a few inches. I'm really happy with the belt now that it's sized appropriately. It probably has a better fit doing it this way, as it isn't limited by arbitrary inches and is actually tailored to my waistline. I'm very happy with this belt, and at the listed price it is quite a value.
