I purchased this belt for myself in the XS/M size and I'm a chick. I wear small size belts usually so I thought I'd be fine. My waist is about 28". The XS/M was waaaaay too small, which I didn't understand because most guys who take a smaller size are going to be bigger than me in the waist. This was like a Childs size. I really liked the color, style, and brand of the belt so I exchanged it for the only other size you can get it in which is the L/XL thinking if the XS/M was way too small that the L/XL should fit me okay. Wrong. It was the exact opposite extreme. It was freaking huge. Like so huge when I tried it on I could fit it over my whole body when I had it adjusted to the smallest belt loop. I surfed the web and the vendors site to see if there was a size in between those two and there's not. Just those the XS/M and the L/XL. In my opinion; this is clearly a sizing failure on Ride's part. I ended up giving the L/XL to my bf instead of losing more money on shipping it back.
