Yes - the belt is too long. Yes you will need to cut the excess and melt the nylon with a match (you remember how right?). But NO, the belt does not include a ring / retainer to hold the excess in place to keep it from slipping forward: So do this - Find a small black rubber band and wrap it around the belt (on the buckle side) to hold the excess in place. Now you've got a five star worthy belt.

I'm a 30-31" waist, so I bought the small. It's supposed to fit ~30" waist, but there's literally 8" of excess, which looks ridiculous. I can always cut the excess, but then it wouldn't look as clean as it's supposed to.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: We believe cutting the webbing and then searing it with a lighter will leave you with custom fit and a clean look. If you believe you've been sent the wrong size belt, please contact us at CS@kuhl.com and we can process a return.

I wear a waist size 33 in Kuhl pants (Love them). I ordered a medium in fear of small not being large enough. The medium is apprx 5 inches too large. I cut the belt to fit so I wouldn't have to wait for another. It doesn't look as good as the original cut but it fits. I love the belt. Just be aware that the size chart may not be accurate.

So, as most of you know belts are used for all sorts of things other than just holding your pants in place. A traditional nylon "Rigger's Belt" is bulky but more importantly, it's functional. The issue with most tactal-belts such as that is that they look cheap, and you get noticed as "that guy" when doing any sort of activity where your belt is visible. People will say stuff like: "That dude looks like a rent-a-cop." and "I bet you he has matching combat boots, lol." Let's be clear, there is nothing wrong with either of the above things (and I do have combat boots), but it does present a look that foreshadows the awesomeness of the nylon belt. I mean Rambo totally slid down a wire onto a group of unsespecting bad guys with nothing but a nylon belt and a sweet Rambo knife... KHUL came up with a design that looks awesome and actually serves the Rambo type purpose, while still maintaining a professional look with or without your shirt tucked in. If carrying a knife and flashlight, you will have zero slip while conducting daily activities, the suuuuper sweet front buckle is awesome, and it doesn't pinch the skin when sitting down on a boulder in the jungle waiting for the Predator with Jesse and Arnold. The nylon belt is thin, but durable, and I'm pretty sure if you do have to slide down a cable onto un-sespecting bad guys this thing can make it happen, just be sure to hold your pants up with something else, or you will slide down the cable with pants around your ankles, which is definitely not very Rambo.

The belt is awesome. I love the buckle and easy adjustment. Adjust easy and hold strong. Classic looking.
Heavy duty belt.
looks great but is heavy and the webbing is very slippery so belt loosen itself.\nNeeds a softer webbing
Very high quality product. I can tell that this belt will probably last forever. Wearing with my ski pants in the winter. Do wish it has some sort of bottle opener worked into the design to add a bit of functionality, but that's pushing it, I guess.
The only reason it isn't 5 stars is because of the need to cut off the end and finish it myself. Good engineers should find a way to hide that, maybe behind the buckle.
