This is a great belt, sturdy, light weight, and great for travel or just every day wear. I like this belt for air travel. There is no metal, so you do not have to remove it when going thru metal detectors. A nice convenience.

But I am still struggling to figure out how to get the belt not to slip loose. I usually get the T-lock type buckle and this one is just a simple pass through with little to clasp it.
NOTE: Pay attention to their sizing info, it is quite accurate if you use Bison's guidelines. And if you get it too big, you can always cut it down and seal off the newly made end with a little (!) heat

These belts are great. They don't break down like leather, especially in the summer when you sweat a lot. They go great with jeans, shorts, cargo pants, etc. You can adjust the length on these really well by cutting off excess and then use a lighter to seal up the frayed ends.
The size is the actual size of the belt. When you order a belt, you should order two sizes up and that will fit your size.

Bison Designs site indicates the sizes are an "up to X inches" size. So, up to a 38" waist or up to a 42" waist. If in doubt, consider going up to the larger size. You may end up with more of a webbing tail, but that can be tucked away.

It's the waist size the belt will fit. I trimmed about 3" off both of mine (both size 38) and they're still about 41" long, so that after cinching them up on my size 34 waist I still have several inches of "tail" or whatever the end is called. Sharp scissors and a lighter/match/candle will do the trick.

The size doesn't really matter, you will cut the end off to make it fit. Order extra large.

The size medium I ordered is approximately 44 1/2 inches long.

No it's much bigger. It's a medium and measures at least 42". I cut mine down and burned the edge for a clean finish. My husband wears it too.

The size medium belt that I bought was 44 inches long (not the advertised 38 inches). It is easy enough to cut down to size, then melt the end with a match to keep it from fraying.

Although the length was not verified with a tape measure, the size given seems to be the length of the belt. "M38" implies a medium belt of 38 inches length.
