Purchased at Costco.
Buckle mechanism locked while out at an expensive dinner. Couldn't release the buckle. Paid the expensive bill for the unserved, uneaten meal. Fled home. Pissed myself while trying to cut the unreleasable belt away. Injured myself while cutting the unreleasable belt away.
Do not buy this product! Run quickly in the opposite direction!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
