What one has the reinforced lining?

 

 

I am very pleased with it. However, I wish I would have bought the one with the reinforced lining

Ares Gear Enhanced Belt beats the pants off the Wilderness.

I am finally having to replace this 5.11 belt after 2 1/2 years and I am doing so with an original 5-stitch Wilderness Instructor belt.

We will soon find out the difference in the original and a Chinese knock off

I still like this belt but it is worn out

2.5 years isn't too bad a life span for a daily use belt. I'd like to try one of the nylon style belts, let us know how the wilderness compares to the 5.11

I agree. I never had a Looper leather last longer than a year

Does the 5 stitch wilderness have the same semi rigid feel as the 5.11?

IT'S IN!

I literally cannot tell the difference in this and the 5.11 (made in China) except for the steel buckle on the Wilderness

Time will tell. Stand by for more.....

It does stand up by itself without support. Which is more than I can say for Tony most of the time8b3fc4d268c6c2ec61cab5c6603aeb0b.jpg3c8839b26d45302248f507c7e4f29123.jpg

Well, I hate to say but I can't really tell any difference in the USA Wilderness and the China 5.11.

They are almost identical
