This buckle keeps the length of a waistbelt fixed.
The 50mm (2") webbing used on our belts is made backpack weight nylon and provides easy, quick adjustments (either loosen or tighten) while the belt is worn and with weight on the belt. This buckle is designed to work while under tension, so when the belt is removed from the body the buckle frequently will slip out of adjustment. Some people find that slightly annoying. We provide a pair of sliders that can be field adapted on one or both ends of the belt, so your adjustment is made semi-permanent.
Note: may have either a black or, unlike the photos, a nickel (silver) finish.
