All belts are made to pants waist sizes between 2 sizes. How it actually fits depends on where you wear it around your body, as some hips are wider than waists.. Please use the chart below to figure out the best size for you. Take a cloth tape and measure where you are gonna wear the belt. So basically the measurement around your waist, find the closest Around Your Waist Measurement that you are over in the chart below. If you measure 44.5 around your waist, pick up the Large Modular Belt because the XL will overlap. If cloth tape is not available a piece of string or rope used then measured will work. The object is to get the ends as close together as possible without overlapping. A Gap of up to 5" may be present on some wearers.
The Belt Size (Your Pants Size) -- Around Your Waist Measurement -- Columns of MOLLE
- Small Modular Belt (28"-30") -- 30.5" end to end -- Approximately 16 Columns of MOLLE
- Medium Modular Belt (32"-34") -- 35.5" end to end -- Approximately 20 Columns of MOLLE
- Large Modular Belt (36"-38") -- 41" end to end -- Approximately 23 Columns of MOLLE
- X-Large Modular Belt (40"-42") -- 46.5" end to end -- Approximately 27 Columns of MOLLE

Very well made and very stable! Does it’s job well! Highly recommend! HSGI is always top quality!
I mean it’s HSGI, it needs no introduction. Top grade quality. I highly recommend.
This belt is extremely well made, doesn’t rotate on the hips, and was shipped very quickly from SKD. Would 100% purchase again.
This is a nice belt....with one flaw that caused me to give it three stars. While the belt has inner openings at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock spots (under the molle) for allowing access to the inner belt (internally only), I would rather it have slits at the 3 & 9 so that allow the inner belt can be exposed in those positions so you don't have to use a drop holster to make it work. Most belts give you the option to expose the inner belt (at 9 & 3) so that a belt type holster mount will work.
It seems to be well made. The large was a bit larger than I expected so you may want to error on the side of medium instead of large if you are typically an in between guy like me, unless you like the ends touching. I wear a 38 or 40 standard clothing belt for comparison.
This slim line belt is a huge upgrade over the older style wide belts. You're losing a row of molle webbing in the process, but the gains in general mobility are well worth it. The only thing that could improve this belt would be 4 anchor points for suspenders, but if you're handy you'll find a work around for that like I did.
I originally had the HSGI battle belt Ver.1 and it's a great piece of gear. It has finally been made better, HSGI has cutdown on the weight which enhances mobility and cuts down on heat when training in summer.
I've been very happy with this belt. I hate standard belts as they take up too much space and shift constantly during training. The slimgrip fits as intended and the backing firmly hugs your body. I run mine right above my belt line where it rests on my hips. This belt is ideal if you run a PC or if you just prefer smaller lighter gear. Only 2 rows of webbing for mounting attachments, this is a significant downside. However the belt doesn't twist or sag with weight on it. If you have large pouches with normal molle straps, you have a problem here as those pouches are meant to be weaved in and out of multiple rows. Any malice clip or similar mounting system will work completely fine. I especially love that there are cutouts at 3 and 9 o'clock that give you direct access to the inner belt to hang holsters or other accessories off of. Installation of the inner belt is also a breeze. I have roughly a 32" waist and run the medium slimgrip with a large inner belt.
I've had complications with other belts slipping and sliding around, from the VTAC belt, Eagle Industries, and other well-known brands. This belt sits very comfortably under well-fitted armor and stays in place without being unnecessarily tight. Holds the basics and has room to spare. A word of caution: follow the HSGI sizing video when determining the size you order, it's critical.
