Backcountry Belt

Rated 5 out of 5 by (L) Hi! I purchased this belt online and I have to say is awesome! First of all, if you want to use it at your natural waist, order the Small. If you want to use it with jeans, usually at the hips, order an M. People here say it runs true to size, I'm a size 26 in jeans an the S didn't even close. I went to the store to exchange it and they told me there that it runs super small (so it is not just me). I hope this saves you a visit to your local store for a return. February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unique I have this belt in both colors and use them frequently. I'm wearing the black one right now. The added leather loop through is a really unique touch to an otherwise "regular" leather belt. Wear it pulled far left on your waist with an off center (left) tuck in t-shirt for an effortless cool factor. Best part - it's made in the US! July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality and cute features I normally don't buy anything online (especially international orders) because you can't see it/try it on. However, I had heard fantastic things about Madewell so here we are :) I'm a US8 at the hips and bought the brown belt in size medium. First time Madewell customer too! Pros: 1. Durable (I wear it 3 times/week for the last 5 months and it hasn't cracked nor given any reason to chuck it) 2. Leather is nice and thick, great colour (NOT filmsy and thin) 3. Fits well at the hips 4. LOVE the dash cutouts. Cons: 1. A little long at the waist (I don't like too long a tail)(I doubled a brown rubber band and slip it around the belt, you'll live) (Small would probably not fit my hips) 2. Takes an extra 2 seconds to undo when you are dashing to the restrooms. Thank you, Madewell! May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Staple This belt is great quality and is super versatile. The design features notches all the way around the belt making it easily adjustable. Can be worn around the waist or lower on the hips. Unique closer makes for an interesting but subtle element when worn with jeans and a basic tee. Highly recommend. May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classy Belt Really like this belt. It's very tailored. Looks great with jeans. Dress it up or down. A winner. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Confusing at first, but solid belt I was a bit confused when I got this belt because I wasn't sure what the extra end flap was for, but once I figured it out everything was fine. Really good material, and it the perfect size. I wear a size 26 in Madewell jeans and a size S fit on my lower waist perfectly! Really want this in both black and saddle brown... But it is a bit pricey, even on sale. Good investment piece. April 29, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice belt Really unique design. Fit great. Nice quality. I got it when it was on sale. Really good price. I would like to get more belts from madewell September 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This belt sparks joy! This is my only brown belt, and the only one I need. It's beautiful, durable, and very adjustable. Love how it looks, and how it can be worn at any waist height. It's another Madewell wardrobe staple I plan on having for a long time. Can't recommend this one enough! August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and practical I love this belt because I can wear it with most of my jeans. I really like to wear this with high waisted jeans with my shirt tucked in so I can show off the details. Go with the brown one! August 4, 2016
