So normally I'd say "a belt is a belt", they hold up your pants, end of story. Then I tried these elasticized belts. Having that bit of stretch really makes a huge difference skiing. No matter which way you bend or move, your pants actually stay where you want. No more bulging out at the back when you bend over leaving a draft crack. No more stiff leather digging into your stomach or sides when you bend and twist. Want to sag, go ahead, they'll finally stay there. The easy adjustment lets you have the elastic as tight or loose as you need, so they'll either snap back into place instantly, or just kinda hang when you want.
The attachment systems they use are super secure and durable. While the normal style clip uses a rockers style to release, which is super easy with gloves, I really like the swivel clip option. With the swivel it is pretty much gaurunteed the belt will stay where you want no matter what you do.
There is no lack of flash with these as well, I'm rocking some neon green and blue. For such a small accessory, its almost funny how much attention these grab.
