Default Battle Belt Sizing

Hey there folks! I'm working on building my first battle/war belt and I''m having a bit of an issue understanding how the belt sleeve (the portion with the MOLLE webbing) sizing works.

This is the belt sleeve I like the best so far for the budget I'm working with:
http://www.skdtac.com/ATS-War-Belt-p/ats.510.htm

On the the page it states:

Quote:
M (30-34), L (34-38), XL (38-42)

Proper sizing for the War Belt will have each end of the War Belt ending just in front of your hip bones. The overall, end to end length measurements are Med: 34 inches, Large: 38 inches, Extra Large: 43 inches.
My questions is, I have a 36" waist, so should I be wearing medium or a large? if it were a normal adjustable belt I would think the Large would be best, but since the belt is supposed to leave a gap in the frount, perhaps a medium is better?

Thanks for any information you can give!

go with the large, you don't want a big gap. The whole thing goes over your regular pants and belt, so medium may be a little small. Plus with a large you get more molle real estate. Get a good inner belt too, like a SOE cobra duty.

Why not just get out a tape measure, locate the front of your hip bones, and actually measure it so you know?

^^ this occurred to me which would put me at a medium I believe. However, after putting on the inner duty belt and pouches the belt can shorten around circumference of your body.

I feel like I would be an extra medium.

I would like to get one of those for my tactical needs, but they haven't made one yet to accommodate those of us with a 56" waistline.
