Review retrieval timed out
This is a cheap cartridge belt,I don't mind paying for a product that is well made,and would have defiantly returned it if I would have paid the original price.,The quality of the leather on this is very disappointing. It appears to be a cheap bonded leather. Definitely not what you expect from Orvis. Even with the sale price it was more than twice as much as the belt at our local outfitter.
A similar style belt at our local outfitter was a much nicer leather.,The belt is made of very thin leather. The Orvis logo is even stamped upside down. Where is the quality control? Truly not the quality that I expected.,I purchased the 12-gauge version of the Shotshell Belt expecting it to be substantial in build and appearance.- as I find most Orvis products. However, I was quite disappointed when I received this belt. The leather was thin, the stitching appeared inadequate and the over-all feel/appearance of the belt seemed less-than durable.,I received my new 20 gauge belt in the mail today and I have to say I am disappointed... I bought the 12 gauge version last year while I was in the NYC store... and I have loved using it... it is the quality you expect in an Orvis product... which I don't mind paying for... my disappointment is that the 12 gauge belt is made of thick leather, and the 20 gauge version I received today (same price) is a much thinner, less quality leather... it is very frustrating to see Orvis go with an inferior leather I guess at the expense of producing it cheaper... I didn't mind paying such a high price to get quality... I do not feel this belt is nearly the quality as my 12 gauge belt... I am keeping it as I hate returning things... and I am an Orvis fan... when I need hunting stuff, I always check Orvis first... and most of my hunting gear does come from Orvis... and I am happy with most of it... but, this time I am disappointed.
