    It took me several photos before I could see what this device was. Why don't they describe it more clearly?

    It is a belt that cinches the waist of your pants by pulling belt loops together.

    I can see some ripped belt loops, and do not see it being helpful for most carry situations.

    This could be handy for us ladies who get a pair of jeans to fit the seat (butt) but leaves the waist with too much access. I have yet to understand why they are made like that. Might be why younger gals are wearing the waist down on their butts.

    BUT I don't think it would be a asset for carry except for keeping the waist tighter so I can draw easier from my pocket. That is just my opinion.

    I see no practical use for it, fashion gimmick maybe.

    If I bought them all do you think they'd stop making them? That way I could kill them with fire so I don't have to see them.

    Come on. There is a function for them. Some ladies have smaller waists than the seat part allows in fitting. It is useful for that, but I can make my own. I sure wouldn't hang a holster from one or use it for weapon carry.

    For carrying a lot of weight on your belt (gun and accessories) this would be terrible. The whole point is to distribute the weight over more space, and support it on your hips. This "belt" would put all the weight onto two belt loops and the pants, probably causeing the holter and gun to flop out away from the body, not suck in tight as it is supposed to.

    From what I can tell it is a terrible idea for carrying.

    Edit: Not to mention their super cheesy song/promo on their website.

    Ok I'll grant you that. I don't wear many womens pants so I'm not in-the-know. All of the pictures I saw on their site looked like a fashion accessory (hey it looks like I'm wearing a belt but I'm not!-oooooh burn!). I've always hated the extra long belts people wear and this looks like a play on that trend.

    I am really glad someone posted this. It has given me a idea for something to make my jeans fit better in the waist. Kinda like a short web dog collar on each side of the jeans waist. I am going to make my own. I hate wearing a full belt for this because it makes the waist of the jeans bunch up.

    Other than that.....I wouldn't buy this for carrying my weapon and wouldn't recommend it to anyone for the same.

    The people in the gallery photos should pick pants that fit. That is step #1.

    It's an interesting example of "out of the box" thinking. It wouldn't work for any of my OWB holsters.
    I don't know how it would be MORE comfortable that a standard belt.
    That's a stretch. There is really nothing Uncomfortable about a regular belt.
