sadly, i don't have any personal experience with the matter yet, but i think i read every post there is online discussing the relative merits of the bb versus alden shell belts. most people seem to say that the bb belts do seem less hefty. one person said it felt like it stretched if he pulled not even very hard.
i'm curious, how do you think they compare in heft to standard, cheapo $30-40 kenneth-cole-calvin-klein-penguin-nordstrom-rack-marshalls atrocities?
