Lose a few pounds first
As many have commented, a good product but the LG/XL is way undersized. If it was just a matter of the size being a little on the small side and there was a 2XL; or if I ordered a LG and needed an XL; that would be one thing. Problem is this is the biggest one they make and there's nothing XL about it. I wear a 36 waist and I can get it around me but nowhere near what I consider an adequate reach so that it wants to bunch up or roll over in front. Made well, good concept in the design and removable back warmer, but I don't think I want to spend $90 under the circumstances and will probably send back-which I rarely if ever do.
In the image I just have the belt wrapped around before trying to stretch it. The Velcro won't reach. I can stretch it to make it connect but only about an inch and a half on either side. Not sure why they are still making this limited size or don't at least rename the size to LG and then come out with a larger size. ??

This belt is mainly to keep you warm and offer some minor support to stomach muscles. The material is too soft and pliable for real fall protection. As other reviews said it is designed small. I wear size 36 pants and the large just made it over my belly.
Bottom line for what it can do it is too expensive but it is not useless.

Looks nice, fits poorly.
L-XL should fit a 40" waist. Stretchy but maxed out.

Makes riding much more comfortable
It does make riding long distances more comfortable, I've ridden up to 14 hours with it. I'm glad I bought this, but I wish I bought a S/M. I have a 34 inch waist and I'm usually a Medium, but that one felt really small. As the belt breaks in a bit it stretches so that would have been right size (when riding without the removable kidney liner). The little rubber velcro supports that go on over the front belt have little rubber nubs that started messing up the inside of my jacket, so I cut them off. I've ridden 12,000 miles with it now and it's starting to show some wear and the velcro is starting to separate from one of the rubber supports, but it's still kicking.

Looks great and functional
Great support, I have lower back issues following surgery and this provides some great support for the longer rides. Fits on the small side so not for portly dudes.

Tomislav M: I have a herniated disc at L5-S1 (lumbar region.) This belt helps me maintain a proper posture on my bike and not slouch, which keeps me from aggravating the injury on a long ride.Jan 10, 2015
