This was my third Blackhawk belt in the last month. The first was a medium, non reinforced riggers belt (36-41) I ordered as a gift for my dad. He wears a size 36 pant...the medium was too small for him, but fit me (size 32) perfectly. So I got the new belt. I then ordered 2 more 1&3/4" reinforced gun belts (medium and large). One for me and one for my dad. He just tried on the large (41-46) and it is way too big!!! I tried on the medium (36-41) and it's too big for me also! I'm going to return the large, give him the medium and try to order a small. Blackhawk belt sizing is unreliable and has given me a flipping headache. I could have bought a wilderness tactical belt for all the money and energy I'll have wasted dealing with this.
Don't get me wrong, the belt is a quality piece of equipment...Two layers of nylon with a kydex stiffener, lots of hook and loop to adjust, but if it's too long you can't get your holster on this thing. Blackhawk needs to fix this sizing issue ASAP!
Pros: Construction, stiff
Cons: Sizing sizing sizing!!!
