      great at bearing a load

      Bought this belt to hold my toolbags at work, a task it excels at. The webbing seems new and stands tall and stiff (just how I like 'em) which prevents it from curling over and cinching my waist when under load. The buckle is backward from my other belts which is a little strange but isn't a problem, and there is what appears to be dried capitalist blood on the back of the buckle, also not a problem. Overall in fantastic condition and for a price that cannot be beaten

      Brand New Unyielding GDR Communist Belt

      This belt came in unissued condition which was lovely. It is a bit broad for my 1960s Swiss overpants I wear daily, but it also works well over other gear. It is unlikely I will ever under typical use break this belt, and what better way to triumph capitalism over communism by wearing this GDR web belt. Unlike the Berlin Wall, my trousers will not fall thanks to this belt. I wish there was an ABSOLUTELY button, for I would click it below. Yes, it was large but I ordered it as such.

      Previously worn by a skinwalker

      The buckle is in great condition, no rust and only a little wear on the paint. The webbing is a little worn, but expected for a surplus item. The belt seems to have been shortened by it's previous occupant judging by the rough melt job on the end. This raises some questions, as it's now barely 30" at full extension, which leads me to believe the previous occupant was not a normal human.

      Replacing the webbing should be easy enough though.

      overall a very good belt

      The belt fits well, doesn't seem to dig into my overweight stomach so much and I don't have to adjust it every time, so it goes on and off quick, mine obviously had never even been used, as the buckle had no scratches/wear marks anywhere and the belt itself had apparently never been unrolled, the only marks you'll see in the pictures are from me figuring out the belt and adjusting it which is quite the labour intensive process, overall I'd say it was easily worth the $9.99 total price shipped to the door.

      Overall Ivan hit the nail on the head with this one.
