About Comfort Click Belt
Comfort Click Belt is a genuine leather belt that uses a 32 position, micro-adjustable ratcheting track system that promises to “fit every time, all the time.”
This same track system allows Comfort Click Belt to easily slide on and off with ease, while the quick release lever makes removal a breeze. According to the company, Comfort Click also features durable stitching, a strong steel and alloy buckle with a gunmetal finish, and a classic, timeless look “for any occasion.”
Taking all of this together, because Comfort Click claims to fit sizes between 28 and 52 inches, the manufacturer claims you won’t have to worry about stretched or ill-fitting belts again. Does this necessarily mean that it’s worth the money? Is there any competition? We’ll explore everything you need to know in this review.
How Do Ratchet Belts Like Comfort Click Work?
While the manufacturer doesn’t explain exactly how Comfort Click Belts work, the good news is that there are dozens of similar products from third-party manufacturers (more about this next).
In general, the underside of these belts contains a long strip with tiny “teeth” that are sewn into the leather. As these teeth move through a specialized buckle, a magnet causes them to catch a peg that locks the belt into place. This way, you can have a much greater level of adjustability, but without using holes like traditional belts (or adding new holes if you’re between sizes).
Now, let’s talk about the competition.
Are There Other Belts Like Comfort Click?
Even if you’ve only been reading HighYa’s consumer-focused content for a short while, you know that we often talk about how—sometimes—ASOTV products are just slightly redesigned versions of products already on the market. In most cases, we think these companies then undercut their mainstream competition’s pricing (more soon) in order to gain some of their market share.
In the case of Comfort Click Belt, it appears to be a close copy of Mission Belt, which appears to be the original. In fact, Mission’s design was so revolutionary when it was first released that the company appeared on Shark Tank back in 2013.
Apparently other companies took notice too, as you’ll now find dozens of different ratchet belts from just as many manufacturers. You know what they say: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
How does Comfort Click Belt compare? Again, the company tells us very little about how their belt stacks up, but Mission Belt offers their customers unique features like interchangeable buckles, two different widths, and mix and match leather—which is guaranteed not to crack.
Comfort Click’s manufacturer tells us that their belt comes with genuine (which doesn’t mean quality) leather, durable stitching, and a strong steel and alloy buckle with a gunmetal finish. But how much of this is marketing hype? As such a new product, there’s no way to know.
What about price?
How Much Does Comfort Click Belt Cost?
Each Comfort Click Bely is available in S/M or L/XL sizes (although there’s no sizing chart listed on their website), as well as your choice of black or brown colors, for $19.99 plus $4.99 S&H.
During checkout, you’ll also be able to upgrade to the Deluxe model that features “premium grade leather” for an additional $9.99. Given this, you’ll be adding 50% to your overall costs—but what are you really getting for this extra money? Again, with such little information provided by the manufacturer, we can’t be sure.
Comparatively, other ratchet belts like Mission generally fall in the $35 range—which, if you were to choose the Deluxe option, will run you about the same price for Comfort Click.
Speaking of manufacturers, Comfort Click Belt is brought to you by Idea Village, who offers a 30-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. In order to request one, you’ll need to call customer service at 844-482-1453.
Comfort Click Belt’s Arbitration Agreement
Arbitration means that, instead of going through traditional legal proceedings, you’ll have to settle any disputes through third-party arbitration, which tend to favor companies instead of consumers.
Why’s this important? Because all Comfort Click Belt purchases are automatically bound to an arbitration agreement, so you’ll be waiving your rights to a trial by jury or becoming part of a class action lawsuit.
Is Comfort Click Belt a Better Deal Than the Competition?
Let’s look at it this way: If you purchase the “standard” version of Comfort Click, after factoring in S&H, you’ll save about $10 compared to much of the competition. However, although the company claims this version is made with “genuine leather,” there’s no way to know what quality the leather is, or how long you might expect it to last.
On the other hand, you can spring for the Deluxe version with upgraded leather, but again, we’re not told what kind of quality you’ll be getting. Compare this to a product like Mission Belt that’s guaranteed to never crack—along with the fact that ASOTV products in general don’t exactly have reputations for high quality—and you definitely have a tough decision on your hands.
Here’s the bottom line: Sure, ratcheting belts can offer an unprecedented level of comfort and convenience, but only you can decide if it’s worth giving Comfort Click a try. You can always take advantage of their 30-day refund policy, although you’ll be about $10 or so in lost S&H charges.
