This is a great belt for the price. Very good quality, well made and sturdy. I tested how much weight it would hold by having my 3 year old nephew hang on it while I picked up the belt with him hanging from it. So it holds at least 25 lbs with no problems at all. This would also make a great tactical belt for someone in law enforcement or for a hunter as you could put holsters, ammo pouches or knife sheaths all around without the belt folding over.
