      When are we going to receive our belt!!

    2. Silvan Blum on December 3

      Unfortunately, today my belt broke when taking it off at airport security. Had to go and buy a Mammut belt.

      I wasn't able to find the pins that hold the buckle... do you ship these separately?

      What the fuck!!! you make a sub par product and only deliver it to have the people and you want us to invest in your company? How high are you really?
      Why don't you get off your ass, go to work and actually finish this campaign and stop spamming us to invest in your company. We've already invested in your company and how many people here have you left swinging in the wind?

      These are real question and I would like real answers!

    15. Jaime Pattenden on November 15, 2016

      I think the flashlights need new batteries from the get-go. Mine was barely lit.

      Happy to get my hunter belts today. It seems pretty nice but time will tell. But after waiting so long I am just happy to get something. It's a good idea and I truly hope it will stand the test of time. Thanks for the extras in my ammo box.

      ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? After phone calls and emails, promises and apologies, I receive my long long long awaited hunter belt and wallet that I have paid for. Guess what, no kickstarter project belt buckle in the box. Another unwanted standard belt. A hunter style strap and zero hunter buckle. As an aside the wallet is way below what i expected in quality too. Why have I waited so long and received the wrong things from half way around the world. Is it that difficult to put the right belt buckle that I have been waiting over a year for?

    20. Markus Schmid on October 3, 2016

      Well - finally DHL delivered my Slide belts today! Honestly I didn't believe any longer that I would get this produt. In the end they delivered on their promise and I like the quality of the product. However going forward they should definitely improve their communication with backers / customers. Nevertheless a happy end of a long story!

      Slidebelts support is great! They rectify the mistake and I receive the right colour! Thank you! :)

    23. Erik Christensen on September 27, 2016

      I just got mine. It is fantastic.

      Did you pull the flashlight out of the belt before trying to use it? You need to push the clip and it pulls right out.

      I ordered the adventure belt and the regular one. Got exactly what I wanted. It's perfect. I've been wearing a mission slide belt for over a year and I'll see how these work.

      Chris on September 26, 2016

      Received mine a few weeks back. My flashlight doesn't work...anyone else have that problem? Customer service hasn't responded to any emails.

    25. Jake Kingsbury on September 26, 2016

      Two different colors ordered and also reflected on the invoice, but received two of the same... we'll see how this goes.

    26. Zach Shallbetter on September 25, 2016

      Incredible that it's been two years, and we still haven't received anything.

    27. David Bezler on September 22, 2016

      My buckle is already showing wear from having to use the firestarter to switch straps and the fabric (string? nylon?) on the end that goes into the buckle is fraying already. Not even close to worth the money spent for what originally seemed like a great product.

    28. Aki on September 21, 2016

      Haven't got a damn thing yet...

    29. KennethL on September 20, 2016

      Finally after 2 years finally receive the product. My first impression is that the material feels really cheap. The buckle is larger than the normal buckles as well, which I'm ok. Was a bit disappointed that despite receiving confirmation on some changes to my order, it was not resolved. I requested a change in my belt strap colour from black to brown. I receive it as black. Emailed, hopefully they get back to me. I'm happy with a complimentary free belt though.

      Just received my order (Toronto, Canada). The belt is definitely bulkier then I thought, but it looks like it will improve on my current Ultralight Backpacking system. The flash light is pretty weak, but if you need something in an emergency then it is definitely good enough. The knife looks pretty good as well (we will see how it will hold up in the rain).

      I also received a second standard issue SlideBelts belt and I am super happy about this. The SlideBelts belt I currently use everyday (for the past 2+ years) is getting a little worn, so happy to have an upgrade.

      @Kelly. It's is a torch and a fire starter. When you pull it out it will have a thinner bit which is the fire starter. It has a protective black coating on it. Once you scrape it
      off, it is good to go.

      Kelly Yamada on September 18, 2016

      I got my belt, but it looks more like the survival belt and not the hunter belt I ordered. It's supposed to come with a fire starter not a bloody flashlight. Even the instructions say to use the fire starter to help open the buckle. I emailed my complaint, but I have yet to hear back from them and it been over a week.

    33. Kyle Ross on September 16, 2016

      I'm perturbed that I paid an extra $20 for shipping and just received a notice from DHL stating I need to pay them an additional $25 dollars before they will even deliver it.

      Not only have I waited far too long for this to even ship, it was my understanding that the additional shipping paid via Kickstarter would cover it. I will now have paid almost $50 dollars just in shipping for a belt worth little more.

      So, I'm very glad to have my belt. Yes, le "plastic" buckle il a bit disapointing, the blade with saw and screwdriver as shown in the campaign is very far away from what we got, but I'm happy to wear it finally.
      The second free belt is very nice and classy too.

      Love the free metal buckle, but slightly disappointed about the plastic Hunter Belt, which I guess is my fault as I missed the "proprietary hybrid polymer mix" description. Other that glad to have it, looking forward to getting to use it in the outdoors for the first time.

    36. James Conn on September 15, 2016

      Got my belt, its great! For those wondering about extra straps, I emailed customer service and they said hopefully early next year there will be an option to purchase survival straps on their own so you can change up the color on your belt.

      Nate Smith on September 15, 2016

      I know it's a bit late to change that process, so as a suggestion. How about a very nice discount off of a base buckle if we are willing to pick up the shipping?

      Nate Smith on September 15, 2016

      So the free metal belt is only for the Hunter level backers. The $79 / $89 survivor backers, despite also waiting two years along with significant design and material changes are not scheduled to receive the bonus belt. I understand the thought process behind it, since something extra had to be done for Hunters after making the combo survival / hunter a single buckle. However, I still don't feel like I received a $90 or much less a $180 (pre-order price) belt.

      My suggestion to help ease the pain of the wait and improve recommendations to others would have been or still could be:
      - a free metal Base buckle for Survivor AND Hunter backers (a nice zinc allow buckle that we can wear with formal clothes as intended and use with our current survival strap)
      - AND an additional Survival Strap for just for the Hunter backers

      Mine is delivered at home (confirmed by wife). I'm not. More to tell tomorrow ! Delivery and tracking to France perfect.

    40. Lars-Petter S Kampen on September 15, 2016

      I got my belt yesterday! (Norway)
      Will the second belt be sent by itself or did someone forget to send it? ^^
      Really love the belt so far!

    41. Lorenzo Pappalettera on September 14, 2016

      I haven't received mine yet.. However when I do, I will have to pay €40,- extra to the mailman o.0 That makes it a really expensive belt.. Why do the buyers have to pay these unexpected amounts?! It would've been nice if I was informed about that before I even bought it -_- obviously

    42. CHRACH on September 14, 2016

      Received my Survival Belt and the additional belt today (Switzerland). Got the E-Mail notification of shipment end of last week, so fast shipping from overseas. The quality of the Survival Belt has to be tested yet.

    43. robin wu on September 14, 2016

      When will I receive my belt?

    44. Shey Snapp on September 12, 2016

      When will i recieve my belt

    45. Drawing Guy on September 12, 2016

      The plastic was as disappointing as I thought it would be - it looks and feels cheap. Mine even had a bit of plastic flashing that needed cleaning up. The firestarter rod is too short to use effectively, but it works. The flashlight starts out bright then dims quickly - you wont be exploring with this thing, but if you need to find something in the middle of the night or need to take a quick jaunt for the bathroom, it will help in a pinch. The knife is sharp, but short and thin, so I don't see it being super effective or lasting long.

      It all boils down to this - the belt is not pretty enough to be a daily wearer, but is just functional enough that it is still worth wearing as an emergency for when I go out hiking or camping. You will still need to bring real gear, but I might get separated from my bag, or my knife might fall out of my pocket (or I just might forget it), I might go on a day hike where I don't bring any real gear... and this belt covers that emergency gap well enough. So while I wouldn't go as far as to say I'm "impressed" with this belt, I don't regret the purchase.

      Got mine. I'm a bit unimpressed after the long wait. The free belt is okay. The Hunter belt seems kind of cheap. Overall, I regret backing this offering.

      I still have yet to receive a shipping confirmation email. I live in new England so what gives SlideBelts? I thought you were shipping to the US before you shipped international.
