Backcountry Belt

Backcountry Belt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from uniquely designed belt This belt has a very cool buckle design. I have the brown color which looks great with any jean color. It felt very flexible and not restricting. Great belt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits both hips and waist - narrower than I expected This belt fits both my hips and waist (I got a medium, 5'7'' and 145 pounds). The leather is nice, although I expected to be the belt a bit wider - slimmer belt then I normally wear - guess I should have checked that info. Overall, happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Belt Really like this belt. It's very tailored. Looks great with jeans. Dress it up or down. A winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt Love that that holes run the length of the belt. I wear a 32 in Madewell jeans and the XL fit me on the last hole with just enough room to be comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madelover This is one of my fav purchase at Madewell. I bought one in summer, so I can use it with the high waist jean and the tunic. It look so stylish yet simple. I got many compliments.
