      TomPreech - Tracking shows that it left the USA on July 1st. You should have received the tracking info in your email. PM me or email chad@craftandlore.com for further support. Thanks.

      Andrew - I apologize for missing this comment until now. There's really not much care needed, excepting of course apply leather balm if it ever feels dry. Also, don't light it on fire using gasoline. Other than that, you're golden.

      I have not received my reward yet.

      Are there any care tips you have for the belt?

    5. Chad Von Lind 3-time creator on July 24

      @Bernhard Hipfinger - You should have received an email with tracking info. Tracking currently shows it is in transit to Austria. If you do not receive it soon, please check with your local customs office as they will often hold packages in case of VAT.

    6. Chad Von Lind 3-time creator on July 24

      @Jordy - You and about 8 other folks should receive your tracking emails this week. Thanks

    7. Chad Von Lind 3-time creator on July 24

      @Randy Thompson - Yes, you can order through the website. And buckles are interchangeable using a standard screw driver to remove the screw posts. Thanks!

      Also still waiting on my order or shipment information...

      If I want to buy a 2nd belt, do I go to the craftandlore web site? And can the buckles be switched between belts? Just a thought.

      @ Randy Thompson - Thanks Randy!

      So, a little while ago i ended up with some Pronto x Ironhearts. Not a bad decision (wait till summer comes��) except the two belts I own shake in fear with the thought of holding those bad boys up. Yesterda, my sneaky little parcel from Chad arrived and I can tell you this Mountain Belt just laughed right in the face of the IH's. After a minor tussle they have become the best of friends. In short, this belt is solid and won't let you down (except if you're at the pub and need to undo it and the Ironhearts in a hurry after too many beers�).
      Cheers mates from Aus.,
      Brad.

      Eduard Lefter - We are working long and hard hours trying to get these out the door and to keep our promise of a June delivery. We have 95% of our shipments delivered, and it was unfortunate that we didn't have them all done in June, after receiving an incorrect shipment from a supplier. As for communication, we've been posted general updates when information is available. For us to stop working on production to answer every PM asking for a personal update only further pushes back our ability to ship at our promised time so you'll have to forgive us for taking a few days to give you a personal update and then directing you to the publicly posted update that included the answer to your question. I'm sorry that we've let you down on your first Kickstarter experience. This isn't a perfect system, and we're not perfect humans. But we're working hard and can guarantee that you will receive your reward, even if it is a bit after our promised time.

    22. Chad Von Lind 3-time creator on July 5

      Pete Garza - Your reward is in with the ones mentioned in the latest update. We hope to receive our shipment of needed supplies today so that we can get the remaining dozen belts out the door. Thanks for your patience.

      This thing. When it unbuckles, when my pee breaks water. It sounded masculine.

      Two broken promises so far.
      No reward shipped in June as it should and the only answer to a PM sent 1 week ago is "we sent out an update" (today).
      I'm frustrated and disappointed, my first Kickstarter experience is not a positive one.
      "Delivery Dates & Expectations
      I'd rather under promise and over deliver, so I set the delivery date to June even though I believe we'll be shipping out before then.
      ...
      My promise is that there will be constant communication and replies to every backer comment and message requesting information."

      @Randy Noya - Thank you friend!

      @Aytan - The Mountain Belt tends to receive that response a lot. We're glad it is setting the bar by which other belts will be judged. Cheers!

      I received my belt a few days ago (Seattle) and I've worn it every day since. The true waist sizing was spot on and this is by far the best belt I've ever owned. I'll be directing my friends and family to your online shop.

      Chad, the little cardboard box with the mountain belt was waiting in my letterbox today. The belt is awesome! Thick as hell! I have been a denim geek for some time now but still looking for the perfect belt to pair my pants with. I have found it now!
      Cheers from France.

      Good Afternoon, received my belt in SG.

      Very disappointed with the product. What were you people thinking?? This product is ridiculous!!!!

      The center hole is perfect, leather is thick and soft and i love the weight. The color is way too beautiful and I can't bear to wear it. The worst thing happening now, i am looking your other products and trying to restraint myself from ordering them.

      Got my belt today. As I opened the box, an angelic light poured out enveloping me in wonder and amazement. Even as I type this, I am encircled by its leathery goodness. Thanks Chad and company, this is truly a wonderful piece of kit for the working gentleman's wardrobe.

      Email notifications will be going out as packages ship. We're entering crunch time on the fulfillment process, so all rewards will be finalized throughout this month of June as promised. Thank you for your patience as we work overtime on this project.
