Great belt but blemishes are noticable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by zimbop from Southwest USA on Sunday, May 31, 2009
These bison belts are the best style they ever made. With the simple plastic buckle they are hard to beat (this buckle style is easy to use and is not bulky like some of their other designs).

The two that I received with my recent order had very noticeable blemishes. One of them (color #35) had webbing that was slightly wider than standard so it was very difficult to feed through the buckle and tighten/loosen. The other (color #31) was ruffled a bit along its length... it seemed to have been woven with one edge shorter than the other so it sort of curves a little leaving a rippled edge on the other side.

Other Bison belts I've gotten from STP were much less flawed. Still, I kept the 31 and it's working fine. Incidentally, the weave they're using now seems to be more supple than the designs of previous years that were relatively stiff. Depending on what you like this could be a good or bad thing. The stiffer ones hold their shape better, the softer ones bend easier and are more comfortable, but don't hold the shape of the waist as well.
