Default Groove Life Belts with magnetic buckle

Has anyone tried the Groove Life Belt that has the magnetic buckle? It is a web type belt that has a metal buckle with magnets to lock it. They say it is stiff enough to use with a holster. I was thinking of giving it a try and was wanting some feedback first. Here is a link to the belt.

Never used it

Doe sit have too much stretch for a gun belt?

I picked up a similar belt with an off brand cobra bucket on Amazon... to me it would not work with a holster... too much give


from your link

t all began with our proprietary webbing, engineered with just the right amount of stretch

It's hard for me to believe that a belt that bends like what is shown in the picture is going to be rigid enough for a gun belt.

I also want a belt that is going to 100% stay in place if I things get crazy...like you get in a fight or something. YMMV.

I have seen some review videos and what not and people have said the belt sags and doesn’t sit firmly. I was also curious about it and thought about getting one.

I'm wearing one right now and love it as a casual belt, but it's not stiff enough for a holster. Someone should definitely make a stiffer one with their magnet system.

I received one as a gift. Nice casual belt but would never wear it as a gun belt.

Had one and returned it. As mentioned earlier, it's a casual belt, not a gun belt. My favorite casual belt is a Nextbelt EDC Supreme in black. It uses a ratchet system similar to my Kore Essential but has a slim buckle that makes it very comfortable for EDC.

Even though they advertise it as a gun belt - 100% NOT a gun belt

I might have to check one of these out. Love my Kore belt for classes, but the bulky buckle makes it impractical for EDC.

^^^This^^^
Donít know why they advertise a separate ďgun beltĒ. The belt material looks the same as all the other belts.
