I love the price vs quality compromise that this set offers. I've purchased similar cobra belts of various levels of quality before so I have some basis of experience and knowledge. I wouldn't purchase this belt if you are planning on competition style training unless you are on a very strict budget. That's not to say this is a cheap belt that won't last. I just wouldn't put it in a tier comparable to a belt like SOG, Ares, or something similar. However, their price is sometimes nearly double, if not more. This is a good belt for a shooter that likes to get the most out of his dollar but only shoots a couple times a month or less. If you are shooting several times a week and spend a lot of time at the range, pony up the big bucks. Also, the inner belt is fairly basic and not all that stiff so I'll likely change that out in a year or so. Don't dwell on my cons as much as my pros. It's still a good deal.
