Don’t drop your pants! Get a Mission Belt (Review)

Anyone that travels outside of their home will find people with saggy pants these days. It is as if ill-fitting pants around the knees are a new trend. With the Mission Belt, there is no longer an excuse for pants that do not fit.mission belt couple






I know what you are thinking, what could be special about a belt? All belts are all made the same, so many sizes, just none of them yours right? If you are like me, you don’t want to poke any more holes in your belts to make them fit. Rather than strangling your midline with an ill-fitting belt you would rather go without one. The days of constantly pulling your pants up are over.

Introducing the Mission Belt, the belt that is making a difference.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” A lot of people know how to fish; they just can’t afford the nets.

Mission Belt was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2013 and after a successful pitch we’ve expanded into over 1000 retail locations and have introduced many new styles including licensed products for NBA, NCAA, and NHL, as well as Nylon and Leather.

They also offer a custom program, so that companies, events, or individuals can get a unique buckle with their logo or name.

They make the best pants-holder-uppers in the world and are having fun while giving a hand up to those in need.

That’s why a dollar from every belt goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. These micro-loans range from $25-$500 dollars per loan. Small loans make HUGE differences. There are millions of industrious, motivated people striving and fighting for a better life and sometimes the only thing holding them back is a little capital to get started. It’s a hand up, not a hand out.

I was a bit hesitant when I first saw the belts; I  ordered an XL in case I needed the extra room. It ended up that I needed to trim the belt back a few inches to get a good fit. Fortunately after reading the simple instructions included with the belt this was very easy to do. After trimming it to fit, I tried it on. A belt with no holes reminded me of the belts I used to wear in Boy Scouts, only much better.  Unlike the web material and the awkward buckle of years ago. This belt was leather, had a beautiful buckle and was easily adjusted.

Gone were the days of poking holes in it to fit in between the every inch mark on my belts.

This belt adapted itself to the 1/4 inch making for a more comfortable fit. I have since worn it to work, a couple of funerals and business meetings, and it has not failed me yet. I look forward to adding a few more colors of Mission Belt to my wardrobe as they are not only functional, reasonably priced but look great as well.

Most of the belts also come in two different widths depending on how casual or dressy you need. Either way, I don’t think you will be disappointed no matter which color or style you go with. So be sure to order a Mission Belt of each color so you too can have the best pants-holder-uppers in the world. To order yours today go to

Mission Belt Co. provided me a Vader belt to try for this review, my thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.
