I purchased this belt in hopes it would hold up against everyday usage, nothing extreme. However, I did not even have a chance to try it out! The belt does not come completed. One side is not attached to the belt, and when you try to just simply use it as a regular belt, (defeating the purpose of the release clip) it is bulky on the non-sewen on side and will not sit right. I would have to either hand sew it together with a needle and thread strong enough or hope my sewing machine could handle it. If I wanted to make my own belt, I wouldn't have purchased, what I was lead to believe, a completed belt.
No, I do not recommend.
