I just finished sticking my hand down a toilet to retrieve the buckle that completely popped off my pants and into the bowl. Appears that the little screws popped off. I found the one screw in the toilet bowl as well. The other is nowhere to be found. This came without any warning.
I love the functionality of a loop-less belt and have enjoyed Mission's product for the most part but as a long-time customer, I've become very frustrated with the lack of durability with the Mission Belt. Their warranty covers only one year but problems will crop up after that.
I just received a strap I was forced to order because one of my two belts kept breaking. Now this with another color belt! Very frustrating and annoying - especially when it happens in public. I've about had it with having to cut the end of the belt strap because of that issue. I can't deal with the buckles also having an issue.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
