Be careful ordering via the size guide. Unless Ive read it wrong, a medium / large belt would fit a 34" waist, however, unless my waistline has been dramatically reduced by my recent discovery of Marks and Spencer baked cookies, there weren't enough holes on the belt to be able to do it up. Punching extra holes in is an option but then you end up with a great big long flappy bit.
So, a 34" waist requires a small / medium. Presumably.
The material isn't great - it's what you get for the price. All a little plasticky, although I did really like the embossed pattern that runs all over the belt.
Animal products are usually reasonably well made, however, this belt is awful. The embossing is on a very thin veneer and has worn away exposing the underlying webbing after only 12 weeks. For £18 I would have expected much better - avoid.
