    I almost certain you're right on many different degrees. Yes the current leather quality is definitely up for debate and the longevity of that leather is also a debate question. I certainly don't want to spend all that money on an item that isn't the usual Filson quality that we are use to. I did check out Tanner Goods prior to my search was attracted to the Cognac in Standard with stainless hardware. I was also interested in Saddleback but am not really a fan of the the hardware layout.

    Does Tanner offer a lifetime warranty for belts...for that matter does anyone offer a lifetime warranty for belts?

    I am happy to be educated if the Filson belts are of higher quality bridle leather than current Filson luggage straps with quality hardware. But I personally don't worry too much about a lifetime warranty on a less than satisfactory quality product (wherein the replacement would likely also have the same quality issues).

    Also, I don't see quality belts failing as the construction is so simple. For example, I have several bridle leather belts ranging from J Crew to a London craft market stall - all have been good to great quality leather with no QC issues.

    Shopcanoeclub.com has a nice belt in 'natural' which will patinate to a very nice medium brown with use. I have seen some photos of patinated natural belts and the color is hard to equal with dyed leather like Filson, imho.
