    Belt

    Hey folks

    Looking for a decent belt, either leather or webbing. Though he last webbing one kept slipping hough the buckle but I put that down to the buckle not the webbing. Would prefer a hole and pin system that is guaranteed not to slip rather than a fancy buckle system

    Check out Wrightsons or H&F or one of the safety gear trade suppliers.

    Belt

    I just bought a Twin Needle belt.

    Well two

    They're pretty good but may need to return one to be set to my exact waist size. I'm bang in the middle of the two on offer and in the large I'd like to have a little bit less running end.
    I replaced this belt.

    I don't know what brand or anything but it has served me very well. The web is slightly large though at around 2". Some knife pouches etc are too tight. It's yours if you want it. Velcro underneath makes it fit anyone. I'm around 98cm.

    Still there. It did fall out once at home though. Nearly lost a toe when it went upside down. Now you've got me worried.
