You'd have a hard time outrunning the Hovitos without one of these holding your pants up.
1 1/4" military style cotton web belts in your choice of colors: "Crusade Khaki" or the elusive "Raiders Brown". You even have your choice of buckle material. Gold colored steel like the ones used on screen, or solid brass like the kind used in the military. Which one's better? The one you like the best.
Sort-of-Interesting Factoid: Indiana Jones wore a brown web belt in "Raiders of the Lost Ark", and a khaki belt in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" he wears both (not together, of course!).
Please measure your waist before you place an order. Our sizes do not match retail.

Just as many a reviewer thus far has mentioned, I'm here to confirm that these are NOT merely costume accessories, but are true-to-life web belts, not unlike those you might see on a military uniform.
The webbing is nice and stiff, but the belt itself is thin enough to be loose and pliable; more pliable than most leather belts, to be certain (I think that's the whole point of the web belt...maybe?)!
I'm a size 30 waist so naturally I went for the 30-32 size belt. I was somewhat afraid the belt would be a bit too short for my liking, but was pleased to discover that the length is neither too long nor too short. There's enough "extra" material to snip off to a custom size after a washing if one should feel so inclined, but I, for one, didn't feel the necessity. When I adjust my belt to fit comfortably-tightly around my waist, I find that there's about 9 inches of slack hanging out the other end. This is neither comically long nor pathetically short (as I originally feared it might be) so I'm totally happy!
I went ahead and bought 2 belts from Todd at once: one khaki, one brown; they both look great! My khaki belt, however, had a bit of a blemish right out of the bag. The small metal plate at the non-buckle end of the belt was flaking off some of its golden-bronze coating, revealing the dull steel color underneath.
Now, the few times I've had the privilege of dealing with Todd's amazing Customer Service staff leave me no doubt that they would gladly, and without hesitation, replace my khaki belt with a new one were I simply to bring up the issue with them. I, however, don't like to make so much fuss over such a little thing, and usually like to avoid the trouble of shipping products back for minor things that don't affect a product's performance. Furthermore, I kind of like the worn and weathered look the flaking has produced. After all, if our intrepid hero worried so much about maintaining his appearance, not only would the Nazis be in possession of the Ark, but Indy wouldn't be much of a hero to begin with!
On a final note, as the Item Description mentioned, the Steel buckle is the one to buy if you desire a screen-accurate look. Steel is what I purchased and let me tell you it is BEAUTIFUL!! The buckle is so pristine and glossy that my coworkers have even teased me about my buckle being so shiny! hahahaha! But I know they're just jealous! ;)
I might try a Brass buckle next time just to see how that look works....and you'll see that review in due time!

So I had to buy two-they are so affordable and I really like the dark brown belt with the Todd's pants. I even bought both steel and brass just so I could have options. Can't have enough Indy gear.

This belt is absolutely perfect. I like it so much I'm going to get the Temple of Doom as well. Don't hesitate a second. Todd's service is second to none, lightning fast shipping, and his extremely high quality products make this a no brainer.

Good for wear to work or whatever. I bought the dark brown belt. I'll swap back and forth between the buckle that came with it and one of my old Marine Corps buckles...looks great! A word of advice: buy a longer belt than you need (I just bought the biggest they had), then before you cut it down to size, enclose it into a cloth bag, wash it in hot water, then dry on high heat. It'll shrink it down. THEN cut it to your size. It's what we used to do in the military, so you don't have to worry about shrinkage.

I've worn web belts for as long as I can remember, but the Raiders Brown has become my favorite one by far, and at a comparable price to any other. I truly wear this belt every day; it's great for the Indy-gear but also for the office.

I wear my brown Indy belt almost every day. The color is perfect. I also have the tan Last Crusade belt also and it sees a fair amount of wear. Looks great with jeans or slacks, and a person can't have a Raider's costume without it.

I got the Raiders brown with the brass buckle and wear it nearly every day. Thanks for a great belt!

Great belt to complete your Indy look or to use regularly with casual or formal attire.

I had a heck of a time getting the metal end through the buckle. Appears the crip on the from metal piece was not good so it wouldn' go through.

I have one brown and one tan for use with my gear and another tan that I used to replace the belt on my Navy uniform that I wear every day. This very inexpensive belt is nicer than the ones I can get from the Navy uniform store where real brass buckles are no longer an option.

Originally I bought this to complete my Indiana Jones costume, most of which consists of vintage or "authentic" items. Not only did this belt fit the bill, I was able to get it in the proper size for me. Belt was so nice I started wearing it regularly to work!
