    ive been using an old belt i have but it comes loose after wearing it a while and been looking at this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181156551157?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 but im only a 32 inch waste this starts at 35 inches, then i was looking at the unger belt but its like £14 and doesnt look anything special, all i have is an unger bucket on a belt and two pouches for wet and dry rags.
    anyone got any recommendations, i just want something sturdy quick release and cheapish!

    I've got an Unger one and can't go wrong with it but got a cheaper one as well which does the job. Any weight on that one though and the quick release buckle can come open at the slightest touch. Couple of quid though worth a punt I'd say.

    cheers mate,whys the unger one so much more as it justs looks like any other black nylon belt but with an unger badge!
    would you say its worth spending the money on an unger one,everything else in my arsenal is unger!

    There is a good reason why one is more expensive than the other.

    The dearer one is made from a more rigid/stronger material and has 2 loops/holders...this belt doesn't sag...I have one :Image7: .

    The cheaper one is NOT made of the same material....... this belt is not as rigid and sags...my mate has one :Image6: .
