re: Hurray! My jeans are no longer “flying at half-mast”

Even if you go to a relatively cheap-and-cheerful store, belts can easily range from $40 to $60 and they look rubbish... ... again, it sounds silly to say this, but if we were all in a room strutting our stuff (and showing off our belts), I have no doubt that everyone would be in awe of my offering :-)

No -- but then I don;t think I've ever bought a product (including my iPad 2) that I even thought about leaving as a special line item in my will (everything goes to my wife) ... but I might add a new bit that says my belt goes to my son :-)

100 year warranty - that is saying something. I may have to look into these belts as I usually go through cheap belts once a year or so and they never fit quite right - must be that 1" versus 3/4" thing. Their other products look awesome, but pricey as well. Thanks for the tip Max.

That is an impressive warranty. And I really like the way they present their disclaimer of what constitutes abuse that is not covered. Have you ever seen ANY product that says "be sure to mention the warranty in your will"?

##... never actually seen anyone review a belt... I know -- I feel a bit silly actually -- on the other hand, this isn't a review per se -- It's more along the lines of me waffling on about something that excited me... All of which leads me to realize that if I get this excited about a belt, I really should get out more :-) Also, I can only imagine what i will feel like when I can one day afford one of their Messenger Bags (it will have its own seat on the air plane :-)

I make it a priority to research almost all of my major (and some minor) purchases so I can get the "real user" opinion of the product. Although I've never actually done any research for a belt purchase (although I have to admit that I once felt that a new wallet purchase was worthy of a cursory look), and never actually seen anyone review a belt, I must admit your descriptions are so enticing I am seriously considering a new belt (even though I don't even need a new one!).

Good Grief -- I would never have thought that having a new belt would have made me feel so excited -- I think it's because now I have this one I realize that I never actually owned a good one before :-)

Just in case you were wondering, my enthusiasm for my new belt is 100% genuine. I paid full price for this little rascal and have not been offered any form of inducement from the folks at Saddleback to say nice things about them or their products. So there :-)

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
