Rev'it Safeway 2 Belt - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Safeway 2 Belt by Rev'it
Ordered the 110cm belt but had to exchange it for a smaller size. The length of the belt refers to the measurement of the belt from the start of the buckle where it attaches to the leather part of the belt to the centre hole where the buckle pin goes through and not the overall length. Unfortunately, this is not very clear in the size chart. Other than confusion with the size very happy with the item.
Does a reasonable job but not great
It's a great product idea and could be excellent. Unfortunately, the execution hasn't been great. The first issue noted is the amount of loops on the back of your jeans dictates whether this belt will fit or not. As with many jeans (mine included), there are two loops about 5cm apart - this belt won't fit. Of course, it works fine for a pair of Rev'it jeans as they have a single loop... Secondly, the quality isn't great. For what is quite an expensive belt, it's fairly thin and doesn't feel particularly substantial. The belt holes are quite small so you have to look in order to get the prong in properly. I'd have returned it but ended up missing the return window - I'd suggest getting a decent quality belt and trying to rig up the zip separately.
Having bought a Rev'it Jacket, I wanted to be able to connect it to my jeans and didn't fancy stitching a zip to the jeans. I considered this and other brands of connector (which were apparently compatible) before ultimately stumping for this. I don't regret this. The quality of this product is excellent and I am very happy with the purchase. The zip is easy to use. I thought that this could be fiddly because you are trying to connect jacket and belt connector behind your back, but aided by the quality of zip this was really easy to align and do up. To complicate matters further I had a brand of jeans which had a double belt loop at the back rather than a single loop that this is designed for. Prior to ordering (having taken a screen grab of the rear from a YouTube Video) I knew that this would need some modification by cutting a wider opening (80mm) in the connection piece such that it would fit over the two belt loops which were on my jeans. The quality enabled me to make the required modification using a Stanley knife and steel rule without undermining the structural integrity of the product. A final point, is that I think the connector belt means the zip connection sits slightly higher than I think would be possible with a stitched option. This obviously helps prevent a wedgie, and consequently I find that when joined together this is really comfortable.
