The Liger Gun Belt is a great example of Maxpedition's many unique products. Combining a sleek look and military functionality makes this belt great for duty belt functionality with casual belt looks. The main strap of the belt is made from Ligerthane which possesses over 2,000 lbs of tensile strength with over 300 lbs of hole pull strength. The highly abrasion-resistant polyurethane coating makes the belt totally impervious to salt water, blood, mildew, mold, rot and resistant to many common solvents. Ligerthane is a good balance of flexibility, yet stiff enough to be used as a gun/duty belt.
The interior is nice and grippy so there is no belt slip while the exterior has an organic pattern to simulate the look of leather. The buckle is fully machined including the hook for highest possible strength then riveted to the belt with stainless steel rivets. At first using the hook and hole system will be a little difficult and odd, but after a little bit of on/off repitition while watching TV it didn't take long to break in. After wearing for about a week I was further able to break it in and adapt to quickly buckling and unbuckling the belt. The trick for me is to use one hand to hold the strap, then use the other hand to ram fingers behind the buckle, but ontop of the other end of the belt. Now you have a good grip on the buckle, it is easy to undo with a curve motion of both hands together then buckle out. Once you get used to it, it is about as fast as a SRB buckle based belt, but with a less threat of accidental unbuckling. Only down side I've experienced was my girlfriend had trouble taking it off of me, and she even eventually figured it out. Many colors are available to match the MIL look or go the more discreet civilian look. Desert Tan is displayed here on this review.
