The American 2 This thing might be good for cosplayers, but I would not rely on it for any kind of actual duty or rough use. The stitching is very poor quality and was falling apart when I opened the package. One side wasn't even finished. The cloth feels temporary, like a disposable hospital slipper.I have used this "battle belt" to walk a 12kg dog for three weeks, and yesterday the plastic belt clip broke, becoming useless. For the price it's probably fine for a costume or single use.
