I have worn this belt everyday for the last two years. The only issue I've had was the elastic band to hold the tail of the belt shredded and had to be cut off. In all honesty, I like it better without anyways. The belt has loosened a little, but is still stiff vertically, and I have never felt insecure carrying with this belt. There was an issue with shipping, post office lost package, Ares was quick and professional getting it resolved. Customer service and an outstanding product go a long ways for me. When (if) this belt ever wears out, it will be replaced by another Ares.... I won't bother looking anywhere else.
Edited to add:
Thanks, Adam! For your reference, we'll replace that elastic band for free under warranty; if you ever decide you're interested in that, please send us an email at "email@example.com".
