Ineffective Belt Around Waist! ....FAIL!!!
Reviewed in the United States on August 9, 2017
Just got these chaps today, and although I have not used it, I do have confidence that its something that will protect me since its made of Kevlar material and covers my lower part of my body. However, after trying it on, I found the pants will not stay on well even with a wide belt and wide buckle in the back, the belt slides out of the buckle while you are wearing it. I tried a personal belt that I have and can use it over the pants and it will work, but the sad part is that I should not have to improvise to get this to work. If you make a product, make it so it works properly.
You can't have such an important body protection while using a chainsaw and have it fall from your hips while you are sawing, surely an accident waiting to happen. I can't give this product 5 stars because of the poor way they designed the belt that holds this heavy Kevlar chaps.
If you get this product, be ready to use your own personal belt over the chaps, it will certainly help keep the chaps from falling!
UPDATE Aug.11, 2017
I found a large tool belt in my closet, very similar to the one that is fixed to the chaps, and it had a ring on the belt (see attached photo) to keep it from backing up while you are wearing it. Tried it out, and the belt doesn't loosen when I bend. The part, which I don't know what its called, probably costs 5 cents and if they add this to the chaps belt, the belt would be fall proof.
The pictures shown in the ad all show these chaps covering the crotch, but when you get the chaps, they are nothing at all like the picture. Other reviewers found the same MISREPRESENTATION of this item on Amazon.
