    I would really like to buy that belt, but I won't order anything that ships USPS now.
    The AIWB I ordered 2/16 has not arrived yet.

    Mine took five days from VT to NC. Buy it. Don't be an old billy goat.
    Every day I convince myself that I can't be any more disgusted by what I see our country willingly turning itself into...
    ...and then wake up the next morning only to find just how wrong I was...

    Super comfortable, great support...yet flexible. I'm tempted to say it's the best belt yet of the seven I own...

    ...but I'll keep it to myself.
    Thanks for sharing your experience with the new D-Ring. As you know we have always been a fan of the D-Ring closure for several reasons. We are happy to hear that you are liking the new one and can report that feedback on the belt since it has been released has mirrored yours. Thanks again!

    USPS has been slower than normal, but parcels do get to their destinations I am confident your holster will arrive. We use UPS for large orders and receive a lot of shipments via FedEx all of which have been slower than normal.

    On a personal note I hear you, I ordered a box of cigars which shipped UPS Second Day Air and it took over a week to get here. Talk about a long wait...

    Ordered late on the 23d, shipped the 24th, delivered the 26th. Doesn’t get much better than that! It took a little bit wearing it Friday night and Saturday morning to get a feel for it, figuring out how tight I wanted it and the best way to get there but I got everything sorted out and I’m really enjoying it, thanks!

    My belt came today. I ordered 38 and the belt says 38 on it. But it is 2 inches shorter than both of my Specialists which are marked 38. Disappointed to say the least.

    All of our belts (except the Duty belt) are sized the same, and in the above pictures you can see that the D-Ring and Specialist are sized the same. The length of the belt is measured from the part of the buckle that interfaces with the tail to the point the tail starts on the opposite end of the belt. If you play around with the adjustment lengths you will see that they both will size down the same amount, with the D-Ring having a bit of a bonus that it can adjust a little longer than a Specialist since there is no hook and loop that needs to engage. The overall length of the entire belt is not necessarily related to the size of the belt (as the overall length of a D-Ring is 3” shorter than a Specialist of the same size but can actually adjust to be a little bit larger than a Specialist can).

    The D-Ring has a tail that is 3” shorter than the Specialist because it does not have a hook and loop closure which means a shorter tail length will be desired when wearing it so the tail is not excessively long (since there is no hook and loop to stop it from flopping around our D-Ring belt tail is designed to support itself so it does not require a keeper for the tail, which would be annoying having to take on and off all the time). It wouldn’t make sense to have the tail be the same length on the D-Ring and the Specialist because of this.

    As also is visible in the picture the D-Ring is actually a tiny bit longer than the Specialist for each given size to accommodate the amount of webbing that is taken up when tail is secured in the D-Rings (as they take up more webbing than the Specialist buckle does).

    If I knew it was that short I would have ordered a 40.
    I don't like it.

    If you could do this belt in the P-F color skew, it would be perfect.
