I'm a 32 belt size and i got the brown M...
i fit into the third hole, so it fits ok, but it would fit better with a large, but im satisfied with the one ive got.
the bottle opener works great, and it has a really solid feel to it, really like this a lot!
just something to be aware of, the philips/flat head parts of the belt are the only part the go through the hole, dont know if this makes that much sense, but i figured it was worth mentioning.

First the buckle with the tools is awesome, but the leather for the belt is cheap and weak. I would love to give this a higher rating but the quality of the leather is just to poor. I would definitly get another one but will change out the leather. I wear a 32 pant and the large size fits great.

I originally bought this belt in 2001 in black. That belt got confiscated at the airport 3 years later, sad day. I bought another one as soon as I could and I have kept the same buckle for the past 8 years going through about three replacement belts of differing qualities. I wish 686 would sell replacement leather that fits the buckle, because the buckle will never wear out and never goes out of style, cause it is a style all its own. I will probably wear this useful buckle far past the days I hit the mountain.
Can you tell me the exact length of the meduim 686 tool belt buckle to tip(brown )

It measures 40" but the holes on a medium fit sizes 30-34". Large fits 24-38" and XL fits 38-42".

This belt is the best belt I have ever owned. The leather is super strong and even when wet it stays the same size with very little stretch even when wearing the belt on you ass. I have never worn pants on my hips so I have been through my share of belts. But this on is still rocking it strong. The only down side is it smells like leather, I mean like you just walked into a Harley Davidson convention. So bad I had to keep away from everything or it would smell just like the belt. Small price to pay for the best belt in the world!

Hands down the best belt, i've ever owned, and IF it every breaks I'm going to buy the exact same belt. It's perfect for any snowboarder, need to adjust your setup while on the mountain? Just pullover and take off the buckle and get to work. Then once you're done shredding, crack open a few beers with the bottle opener. In other words, this belt helps creating the perfect day!!

i finally bought my second one. i had the black one and i wore it pretty much everyday (skiing, biking,living) for about 5 years and it's still going strong, but the leather had stretched out a bit. so i bought the white one and it's just as awesome, maybe better! 686 is the bees knees!

Sorry to say that I don't snowboard, but this belt makes the average guy into MacGyver.
First of all, the belt is attractive and high quality (i went with the brown but might get the black one, too)
And the tool buckle is well made and does actually work. Within the first week I had already used the Phillips head 2 times to the amazement of my friends.
Get it. Just for the novelty alone its worth it...but then it really works....so its a home run.

I like this belt a lot. It pretty much rocks. Looks sweet and feels well made.
Definitely get a size larger, you can always jab more holes in the leather if needed.
Being that it is leather it will deform a little in the back if you spend your day falling down the mountain like a gaper. So not really water proof, more like water resistant. Will still look sweet, just not as sweet as it could, only reason it doesn't get the full five stars.

This item is a must for the serious rider. It is very functional and stylish as well. The metal loop also has wrenches integrated into it to make adjustments which I found to be an interesting bonus. Like previous reviews I would STRONGLY recommend ordering one size larger than usual due to the unisex sizing.

Yes... This belt is not only cool but it's functional as well, like the advertising says. I was riding at Mount Baker last weekend and after riding down Gabel's, at the top of C-5 while strapping in, my binding screw came out. I just took my belt off and screwed it back in - THE BELT SAVED MY DAY- (I still need to try the beer opener!)
